4 weeks and 1 day ago Richard & Lisa became Mr & Mrs Kingston at The George of Stamford.
The George Hotel is one of Englands greatest coaching inns. It has wonderful oak panelled rooms and luxurious gardens that were full of deliciously heady scented Wisteria.
I arrived early and met Richard and his son as i was taking photos of the dining room all ready for the celebrations later in the day. Crisp white linen adourned the tables and the white stem roses finished the setting off perfectly.
Guests arrived and enjoyed a pre wedding drink in the courtyard while soaking up the sunshine. Richard took this time to plaster his blisters. Who didn't break their new shoes in??
Ceremony time and we all waited for Lisa to arrive. I do think the nerves and excitement were starting to get hold as Richard was becoming a little fidgety and Lisa's mum just couldn't talk to anyone.
The doors opened and the tears started. I'm not sure there was a dry eye in the room during the whole ceremony. Tears and smiles were certainly a big part of this wonderful day.
Drinks and canapes were served out in the garden where all the photos took place. Richard had brought along his pride and joy, his gold Lambretta scooter. It certainly drew some attention from wedding guests and hotel guests, rightly so. It was fabulous.
After the meal the speeches began and so did the tears again. Wow what an emotional day. I always say if you can get your photographer laughing or even crying then you have done a great speech. Shhhhh don't tell anyone but i did both!
Congratulations guys, thank you for sharing your day with me and your wonderful family. xx
