Kerry + Russell | Belmount Hall

I never knew until Russell’s speech but apparently I was the first person he told he was going to get married to Kerry. What I don’t know is whether or not Kerry had been informed at that stage? We’ve been great friends for many years, often meet to put the world to rights, and he happens to be one of my favourite wedding photographers. Kerry is a super talented hair stylist and we’ve also bumped into each other over the years so it was a massive privilege to shoot their wedding.  The ceremony took place at Belmount Hall, Hawkshead, and was conducted by the lovely Debra Jessett of Inspirational Ceremonies.

I caught up with Kerry late morning in the very capable hands of hair and makeup artist Lucy Pearson.  There was lots of laughter and excitement and the atmosphere was very calm. Russ on the other hand…

There was live music throughout the day from the mega awesome Sophie and Matt of The Distance. I had heard these two at another wedding and they are sooooooo good! Beautiful voices, great musicians and perfect repertoire. Check out their website, they’re brilliant.

Kerry + Russ have 5 sons between them and I think their mission was to embarrass Russell as much possible during the speeches. If true, they certainly accomplished it. We heard some heartfelt words followed by lots of chuckles just in time for the evening do. Music again was supplied by The Distance (seriously, check them out!) who made sure the dance floor was full.

You can probably tell, I love these two to bits and I’m just so happy they found each other. They both looked fantastic, although Kerry had the edge in my opinion. Knowing Russ as I do, its going to be fun and it will be a joy to watch them together xxx
