Kirsten & Darren’s Palm House wedding

Kirsten & Darren’s Palm House wedding 

I arrived at Kirsten’s house to cover the bridal preparations and started by shooting detail shots of the wedding dress and shoes.  The house was buzzing with activity, but there was no sense of being rushed as there was plenty of time to complete everything before having to leave for The Palm House in Sefton Park. At times I was wishing I had paid more attention to German lessons in school as I was just about picking out the occasional word in some of the conversations between Kirsten and her family and friends who had travelled over from Germany

The weather had been really nice in the morning, but it had started to rain by the time Kirsten arrived at The Palm House.  The umbrellas were out as Kirsten exited the car, and she hurriedly made her way up the steps to shelter under the canopy covering the entrance.  We took a few photographs before Kirsten entered the stunning dome-shaped Victorian Palm House to go through the final details with the registrar.

Darren was waiting patiently, resplendent in his full navy uniform. It wasn’t too long before Kirsten made her way down the aisle, arm in arm with her sister.

Following the ceremony, Kirsten & Darren were given a full Navy guard of honour, walking their way under raised swords, held by some of Darren’s ex colleagues.  The rain subsided for long enough to allow us to take all the family group photographs and the bride & groom portrait shots in the grounds outside The Palm House.

Prior to the speeches, Darren treated us all to a surprise heartfelt guitar and vocals on the stage…. he went down a storm!  Darren then went on to deliver his speech in two languages – is there no end to this man’s talent?

I hope the 700 photographs produced remind Kirsten, Darren, family and guests of an amazing day at Sefton Park Palm House; it was certainly a lovely wedding for me to capture.
