Drayton Manor hotel & Theme Park is a wonderful setting for a wedding & is handily located just up the road from my home & so I was delighted that Caroline & Gary chose me to be their wedding photographer for their Big Day at Drayton Manor Hotel 🙂
The 4 star hotel is situated within the 280 acres of parkland & lakes of the hugely popular Drayton Manor theme Park & with it’s wonderful Park View Suite & amazing Presidential Bedroom Suites is perfect for wedding couples with a taste for adventure.
Caroline & her bridesmaids were enjoying the morning’s preparations when I met up with Gary as he greeted the guests arriving in the hotel lobby before they all headed to the Park View Suite to await Caroline’s arrival for the ceremony.
As ever the Staffordshire registrars treated us to a lovely ceremony enjoyed by all before we headed out into the hotel’s private grounds for a confetti moment & family photos.
Then came one of the highlights of a Drayton Manor wedding as we took a golf buggy through the theme park to the carousel for the venues feature photo opportunity. I always enjoy this time in the day & it is lovely to see the park’s day visitors congratulating the happy couple in the first minutes of married life 🙂
A stop off at the lake on the way back gave us more photo opportunities before heading back to the hotel & the Park View Suite for the wedding breakfast & speeches.
As it was a lovely evening we made the most of the charming woodland adjacent to the hotel for a few more photos including a first for me – the groom wearing the veil!!
Caroline & Gary soon took to the dance floor for their First Dance before Gary & his bandmates entertained the guests well into the evening.
