Carole & Martin had a gorgeous purple themed wedding at the Old weighing room, Doncaster Racecourse.
After meeting Carole at the I do wedding fayre in Doncaster Racecourse I could tell she was incredibly excited about her wedding. While she and Martin wanted to keep their wedding day simple they also wanted it to be perfect and reflect their personalities.
I met Martin on the morning of the wedding at the Old weighing room. He was greeting guests and catching up with family members in the seating area outside. It was such a lovely warm day, nobody wanted to go in to the ceremony room.
The registrars were the ones to encourage everyone to take their seats just minutes before Carole’s car came around the corner. Her bridesmaids arrived first, both dressed in the same beautiful purple dresses. Her son arrived with her in the wedding car, with a bow tie to match the bridesmaids, and they all made their way down the aisle.
During the ceremony there were readings, poems and songs sung by different friends and family members who had been close to the bride and groom, giving that extra special personal touch to the day.
As the ceremony came to the end I took Carole and Martin for their couples photographs around the grounds of the racecourse. We were soon followed by three lovely ladies who wanted to be a part of their photographs. They helped Carole by carrying her train, and posed beautifully for some photographs with us.
While we were outside the staff changed the room around and set up the tables for the wedding breakfast. Each table had a different country theme full of items the couple had collected on their travels. There was an eclectic mix of things on each table – but it worked.
My favourite part of the day was the wedding flowers. They all looked beautiful, and smelled lovely.
