Photography by Karen Walton – Lindsay & Mark – Bagden Hall

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

More Wedding Photography from earlier this year I photographed Lindsay & Mark’s wedding at Bagden Hall near Denbydale.  It was one of the wettest days (in fact is was only the day) that we had this spring so it was quite late on in the day when we managed to dodge the rain to get photographs outside, but as one of my favourite venues the Hall as plenty of other areas for great photo opportunities.   Lindsay’s dress I must say was quite magnificent with one of the most beautiful Bridal trains I have ever seen and very easy to arrange, Mark scrubbed up quite well also.  It was an emotional wedding, though there was plenty of fun and laughter during the day as well, as the damp wet weather did not dampen their spirits.  The speeches were very good, with fun elements as well as serious ones.  It was a really good wedding and great family get together.  I hope you enjoy their video from the highlights of the day.

What a Heatwave of a Wedding with Jeanette & Phil Wedding Photography by Karen Walton

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Karen Walton Photography had the privilege of shooting Jeanette and Phil’s wedding during the very hot heatwave that we have had this spring.  However, it did bucket it down during the wedding breakfast, but that did not matter, in fact that was the last time it rained heavily for a good time.  Anyway back to the Wedding Photography, I caught up with Jeanette at the Holiday Inn – Brighouse/Leeds in her suite while the bridesmaids were having their hair and makeup done, she was very chilled out (love this in my brides), then we moved into the honeymoon suite to get the final preparations and of course the fabulous dress.  In the meantime I caught up with Phil and his best man and took some shots outside in the sunshine of what is a great location for the wedding.  The reception has recently been re-vamped and is now very modern with a quirky mural of Brighouse, this was used for a couple of shots of the newly wed couple, along with the wall in the courtyard which at certain times of the day when in the sunshine it goes a very warm colour which again is great for shots.  I must admit that the room for the ceremony and reception was splendid with millions of candles and tealights, never seen so many at a wedding.  Phil was very emotional during the service and he had tears in his eyes as he saw Jeanette for the first time in her beautiful dress and it was a lovely moment which was captured.  After the service everybody went outside to bask in the lovely weather and congratulate the newly weds.

Earlier this year we at Karen Walton Photography had the pleasure in photographing  the Wedding  of Natasha and Lewis in the lovely village of Monks Fryston in Yorkshire, firstly getting ready at the romantic Monks Fryston hall, then with the wedding taking place at the Church across the road.  Every thing about the wedding was just perfect from the dress to the flowers, bridesmaids, brides men, every detail had been carefully prepared and thought of which shows in the beautiful images.  Although the weather was a bit mixed but that did not spoil things on this very special day, we also managed get some great shots outside in the fabulous grounds.  My lovely couple really had a wonderful wedding and loved every minute of the day, which hopefully captured by Karen Walton Photography.  Below is a slideshow of some of Natasha and Lewis favourite images, so sit back and enjoy their special moments.

In October it was Tanya’s and Dave’s Wedding at Spring Hall in Halifax  (for the legal service) and Crow Nest Park Golf Club. The theme for the day was Superhero’s and Freddie Tanya’s son certainly was that – he was so emotional he melted every bodies heart.  At Spring Hall there is a secret location which I took the happy couple too after the service and got some great shots in the Autumn sunshine, afterwards we went to Crow Nest where Tanya and Dave had another personal ceremony  with more guests watching what was a great fun way of celebrating their union.  After the wedding breakfast we got some shots on the Golf Course and later we had the Cigar Shot, which is well known in the Hamer circle of friends.  The first dance was also an emotional one when Tanya danced with her brother.  Even though it was very dark outside we got some shots for the Sparkles.

Christmas Time at the lovely Bagden Hall.  Kate & Will had bee planning a superhero wedding themed day, with their one little hero.  Kate surprised Will with a drive in a red Ferrari and he was over the moon with it, so we got some great shots with the car and also the beautiful wedding car.  The weather was kind and not overly cold, so we managed to venture out to get some great shots by the little bridge and the lake. It was a fabulous day, with entertainment, dancing/singing and  a visit from Father Christmas.
