Full story featured on Rock My Wedding
There’s no business like show business, like no business I know. Except this isn’t show business, this, ladies and gentlemen is the star studded, Hollywood style wedding at Middleton Lodge of the drop dead gorgeous, Dougie and Jordan.
There’s no business like show business
This wedding was inspiring, creative, spirited and exciting. A wedding that was action-packed from the very beginning and had us skipping flamboyantly home at the end of the evening eager to process the images and relive everything that just happened all over again.
October is a month that seems to get a little overlooked in the ‘I’m planning a wedding stage’, an almost forgotten month, but we are strong advocates for this more subdued month. We encourage all newly engaged couples to relook at that calendar and consider October, it is colourful, it can be warm and it shows of the best golden hour light. October is the new black! (does that work? Hmmm we’ll go with it anyway) and if our ramblings still aren’t persuading you, then take a look at the photographs from Dougie and Jordan’s Hollywood style, autumnal wedding below.
Golden hour goodness
The venue for this Hollywood style wedding was Middleton Lodge in Richmond, Yorkshire. A midday ceremony took place in the Lodges main house followed by drinks, canapés and a champagne tower in the library room. The wedding party then took a short walk through the impressive leafy grounds to enjoy the wedding meal, speeches and the evening celebrations in the Fig House. It would be fair to assume that this day had been planned precisely on the time of the sun setting because, just as the guests made their way through the grounds, the low setting sun reached it’s ideal golden hour height and the grounds of Middleton Lodge were painted with rich, golden hour goodness. As the newlyweds took a romantic moment aside, we snapped a few opportunities that were too good be missed.
Moving into the evening celebrations now and we can honestly say that we were bowled over by this groups set of wedding speeches. Dougie himself is a professional actor and we can only assume that his art runs throughout his friends and family, as all the speeches were delivered to absolute perfection. They had us bent over double laughing and crying at all the right times.
After the wedding speeches we were surprised with an all singing, all dancing performance from the Groom and his Ushers and as we moved later into the evening, the party started and a dance-floor to beat all dance floors erupted. Not only was our Groom an actor but our beautiful Bride, a professional dancer and let’s just say that we would have felt awfully inadequate doing our best two step. Instead, we stuck to what we know and captured the whole thing on camera so that they can relive all those insane dance offs, the performances, the silly dance moves, the professional dance moves and the time that Dad ‘decked it’ for years to come.
Thank you for having us
Dougie & Jordan, thank you for inviting us to photograph your wedding day. We had an incredible day and still find ourselves reminiscing about it now. It will be a tough one to beat that’s for sure!
