Ciaran & Nina's Wedding at Thornton Manor

Ciaran & Nina’s wedding found us back at one of our favourite wedding venues the stunning Thornton Manor. The weather was perfect & Nina, I have to say looked amazing in a gorgeous Jenny Packham dress bringing a tear to everybody’s eyes as she walked into the room for the ceremony. I am asked what makes a great wedding on numerous occasions & every time the answer is the same, it’s the guests, they make the atmosphere and the fun & this was just so on this wedding we really never stopped laughing.
One thing I do love at Thornton Manor is the way the Bride & Groom enter the room to their choice on loud music (this time a Stone Roses classic) it really gets everybody up & cheering. Our coverage ended with great speeches, straight from the heart a lovely way to end a unbelievably good month for Jane & Myself…. Now onto the UK Photographer of the year award ceremony.

Andrew & Heathers Wedding at Soughton Hall

Andrew & Heather where a joy to photograph, why because they knew just how important good images of their wedding are, and boy did they deliver. This was my first visit to Soughton Hall in Northop, and you cant help but fall in love with this stunning venue. The staff, the food, the rooms and that’s before you walk around the gardens, it really is a photographers dream venue.
This wedding was on a high when we arrived & didn’t go any lower it was just a blast from start to finish & had everything (we could even choose the best room to photograph Heather getting ready, how cools that!) all finished off with a amazing light show to really set off this beautiful venue
I hope to be working in the future with this venue & staff & have to say I am really looking forward to it.

Posted a few different images on the Classic Photography Facebook page, be a fan…. You know you want to, if only to have a nosey at what’s happening in the future.

Michael & Lisa's Wedding

Well another wedding, and another day dodging the showers, but one thing I love about our couples is that no matter the weather they still enjoy themselves totally & this was the case with Michael & Lisa and they really gave us some great shots. Their wedding was at Rainford Parish Church & the reception in the Laureate Restaurant at Kilhey Court Hotel with its views over the gardens.
Now I have to admit when we left I felt a little sorry for Michael as after a great Dads speech & a very emotional, from the heart speech by Michael he was the destroyed by a Bestmans speech including the groom singing his nemesis song, hilarious.

Keith & Lisa's Wedding at West Tower Country House

Jane & I had been looking forward to this wedding ever since the pre wedding shoot we did nearly a year ago with Keith & Lisa. The venue for their wedding was West Tower, one of the most gorgeous venues in the north west. There is so much as a photographer you can do here, the staff are super helpful & food is fantastic. Both Keith & Lisa looked amazing and were a joy to photograph ( and her mum makes a mean bacon barm aswell,happy days)

James & Leah's wedding at Bartle Hall nr Preston

I have to say this wedding had everything apart from the weather, it was torrential all day, but it was still one of the most loving, fun weddings we have shot. James & Leah just accepted the weather because the real reason for the day was to start their new journey as man & wife, and their love for each other really made this a special wedding not only for family & friends but also Jane & myself.
James & Leah married at the impressive St Wilfrids Church in Standish & then onto Bartle Hall nr Preston, our first visit to this venue. Jane & I really enjoyed this wedding not only were James & Leah were a joy to photograph, but also the weather made us try new ideas, new angles & new techniques & for this reason this wedding will always have a soft spot in my thoughts.

Thanks to you both for a special day.Dx.
