A selection of photos from Kate & Khalid’s blue themed Knowsley Hall Wedding Photography In August.
Kate chose a gorgeous tea length dress to go with her Jimmy Choo’s, with her bridesmaids in blue floral individually patterned vivien of holloway / 1950’s style dresses. On the morning of the wedding, I met Kate at her parents home to get photos of dresses, details and the girls getting ready. Kate’s bouquet featured ivory roses and blue flowers, to match the blue colour theme of the day.
Knowsley Hall is a grand stately home in the Knowsley metropolitan borough of Liverpool, and is the ancestral home of the Stanley family. I’d been wanting to shoot a wedding at Knowsley Hall for ages, so was over the moon when Kate & Khalid got in touch. I met Kate and Khalid before the big day to have a good look around, this really is a huge venue and the grounds amount to around four square miles of landscaped parkland, so a bit of planning is required with what locations to use. After we met, I was so full of ideas and I was really looking forward to shooting their wedding. On the day the couple and their guests were blessed with glorious sunshine and were able to enjoy the warm weather on the terrace whilst enjoying reception drinks and canapes. I shot the group shots at the end of the manicured gardens, with the Hall providing an impressive backdrop.
Wedding photographer Martin Hambleton was second shooting with me, so he met Khalid and the guys at Knowsley Hall whilst I was with Kate and the girls. Martin also shot the room detail shots you can see below, whilst I was outside with guests shooting various group combinations. At a large venue like this, I recommend couples book my two photographer package so as to get the most out of the day.
Kate and Khalid had selected dramatic pink uplighters for their evening reception, which really transformed an already beautiful room. Kate’s tea length dress looked great during the first dance! After the first dance, it was time for one final portrait in front of the venue, which featured dramatic lighting and I then left them to party the night away.
Some feedback from Kate & Khalid:
‘They are amazing, thank you Karen!! Really lovely. Xxxx’
