Wedding Photography at Mitton Hall: Neil & Kate

Its been quite a journey for Jane & I towards Neil & Kate’s wedding, they had been guests at so many wedding we had photographed and now it was their turn. The weather wasn’t really on our side but I have to say Kate never stopped smiling all day (leaving the biggest smile as she walked up the aisle with her proud Dad and saw Neil).
This wedding was really special for us with so many of our previous Bride & Grooms at this wedding it really was like photographing friends and add to that the fantastic surroundings of Mitton Hall (just aswell we love this venue, its turning into our second home) then we had all we need for fantastic images.

Thanks Neil & Kate, you where stars, thanks for some great images & memories D&Jx

Wedding Photography at West Tower: James & Laura

Another beautiful warm sunny day & we were shooting James & Laura's wedding at West Tower one of my favourite venues (just as well were seem to be at West Tower every other week). The ceremony took place at one of the most picturesque churches I have seen, Lathom Chapel on the estate of Lathom Hall. Surrounded by flowers & the Lancashire countryside it was a special venue & a very funny vicar keeping the packed church entertained.

Wedding Photography at Bolholt Country Hotel:Peter & Laura

Weather seems to be playing a big part in wedding plans & so it was as we looked to the sky for the rain.... and it didn't show, a sunny day for Pater & Lauras wedding in Bury, infact it was a gorgeous summers day.I think they both will agree they had a few nerves before the ceremony but as Laura walked up the aisle the look they gave each other was beautiful. This wedding was every bit as special as the royal wedding ...... including personalised teacups,mats,plates,T shirts & other various memorabilia.

Wedding Photography at West Tower: Stephen & Nicky

When I first met Stephen & Nicky and as they talked me through their dream wedding day & how it would run I thought to myself ‘ if half of what they had planned worked then this would be a wedding to remember’ well guess what EVERYTHING ran exactly as they wished. My brief was to photograph a wedding based on a vintage English garden party and as Stephen & Nicky arrived at West Tower in the most gorgeous MKii Jaguar (oh what a car) we where greeted by what can only be described as your dream vintage English Garden Party complete with band, games, picnic table, bunting…. So many things you didn’t know where to start. As guests enjoyed the party we slipped off for photos in a nearby cornfield where Stephen & Nicky’s love just shone, oh & regarding thinking of everything what about the shoes… will they get dirty … oh no!!! Nicky had organised some personalised Converse trainers!!! My god they thought of EVERYTHING!
One of my Highlights of the year was handing Stephen & Nicky a few props & saying ‘show me your personality’ WOW! What fun.

Thanks Stephen & Nicky for a memorable day, as much as I hate using cheesey words… your wedding rocked. Dx

Wedding Photography at Carden Park: Ross & Catherine

Ross & Catherines wedding took place at St Boniface Church in Bunbury in Cheshire & their reception at Carden Park & as we visited both locations it was clear why. Bunbury is your typical postcard English village & not one but two vicars who really where a joy to work with and very helpful. This was our first visit to Carden Park (the golfers that read this blog will know how famous in the golfing world this venue is) and as a wedding photographer you really are spoiled for choice, add to that a couple who are so ‘in love’ that Jane & I had a blast.
Thanks to Ross & Catherine for allowing us to be part of their day. Dx

Wedding Photography at Haigh Hall : Kevin & Jennifer

I don't know what memory of this fantastic wedding will stay with me longest, the warm welcome,the laughter... or Brian the cat, anyway another wedding at what is becoming our second home Haigh Hall. There is something about this venue that always impresses when you arrive & add to that constant laughter then it really is hard to believe that I call what I do a job. This was an easy wedding to photograph, Kevin & Jennifer are a joy & so are their family & friends & with her brothers girlfriend catching the bouquet hopefully we will meet again for a fun wedding????? :-)

Belle Epoque Wedding of Simon & Elizabeth

This was our first visit to the 'uber chic' Belle Epoque in Knutsford & what a wedding we chose.It was (so far) the hottest day of the year which is a bit surreal as Simon (who is a cool photographer) & Elizabeth live in Norway and are probably more used to the weather we normally get but with a bit of snow thrown in for good luck.Anyway as we photographed guests chatting in the roof top gardens the sun shone & champagne flowed then it was time for the ceremony & this is when tradition took a back seat. Elizabeth was escorted up the aisle in a stunning dress by Simon looking equally as smart for a very emotion & personal ceremony then photo time. On a previous meeting I had found a really cool area for some shots so off we went stoping traffic & shoppers for some beautiful images.So for a first visit the Belle Epoque along with Simon & Elizabeth did us proud, cant wait for our next visit....
