Hawkesyard Estate | Deborah + Ian
This was our first visit of the new season to the fabulous Hawkesyard Estate for the wedding of Deb & Ian in the company of their children, family and friends. As winter decides to give way to spring the grounds were already looking wonderful and made for beautiful portraits for this well suited couple.
A Beautiful Hawkesyard Estate Wedding by Staffordshire Wedding Photographers Barry James
Hawkesyard Estate is a gem of a venue at any time of year with the grounds adapting for each season. Today was no exception for Deb & Ian’s wedding with the signs of spring enhancing the photographs. Ian was first on the scene with his best man and his number two best man looking very smart in suits from Jon Paul of Rugeley, talking of numbers “Sergeant” Ian graced the occasion in his army “number one” uniform. The bridesmaids and the couple’s two children then joined us to await the arrival of Deb and her Mom transported by the venue’s “wedding buggy”.
Ian waited patiently with the guys as Deb was delayed slightly by a hungry ten week old baby, but the wait was worthwhile as all eyes turned to the bride as she made her entrance in a gorgeous gown from White Rose of Rugeley carrying a beautiful bouquet created by Lynne of Fine Flowers in Rugeley, to join Ian for their ceremony.
After becoming “husband & wife” Deb & Ian led the procession of guests into the gardens for a few family photos before they joined us for a walk through the grounds for their personal portraits. We then made our way to their reception room which had been elegantly styled by Make My Day Special with floral bowls from Fine Flowers. A few more photos with the couple, their cake and starlight background ended our coverage leaving Deb & Ian to enjoy the rest of their special day in the company of their family and friends.
