Rudding Park Autumn Wedding


A lovely autumnal day for this Rudding Park Hotel wedding. The ceremony and wedding breakfast was in the Radcliffe Room with some stunning shots taken in the Rudding grounds. This is the note I got from the happy couple:

Dear Tim,

From meeting you at Rudding Park’s Wedding Fair February 2016 and having a meeting with you, we walked away knowing instantly you were to be our photographer to capture our special day. We hadn’t looked around and we didn’t look further. You have a warm and friendly personality, and presentation of yourself amongst your portfolio which is exceptional. Your communication is very efficient, and detailed. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you better through our pre wedding photo shoot. This put us at ease and made us have a clear understanding on what to expect on the day. You ensured we had a final meeting the week of our wedding to make sure we were comfortable with all the details. You arrived looking very smart in your suit and were extremely professional but friendly. Also I enjoyed that you and our videographer Peter worked well and closely together to capture shots and videos from all sorts of angles during the day. You ensured we remained calm, and managed to fulfil the photo shoot list. You were very attentive and captured a beautiful album for us both. We are blown away with the photographs you have taken that we have seen so far and can’t wait to see the album! Thank you so much, you will be highly recommended & for anyone who reads this I hope Tim is the first and last photographer you speak with like us.
Mr & Mrs A Smith.
