Thornton Manor Wedding Photography: Zia & Farrah Part 2

After Farrah & Zia’s Mehdni we couldn’t wait for the main event & a perfect weather forcast greeted us as we drove to Thornton Manor.I have to be honest, I do have a soft spot for Thornton Manor, its my fave venue a real photographers dream. Farrah was completely chilled (or that’s what it looked like) as she transformed into a stunning bride. Zia also looking daper, made for some of my fave shots of the day as he saw Farrah for the first time. From then on I don’t know who was having the most fun, the couple or me. Cant wait to show you part 3 in a few days.

Farrah & Zia's Wedding Part 1

Yes part 1, there is 3 parts to this amazing wedding.

Farrah & Zia first walked into the studio over a year before their wedding and from then on I have been so excited about shooting ALL the events at the wedding. This was the first Indian Wedding Jane & I had photographed and the first Mehndi & the best way to describe the evening was ‘one colourful, fun gathering of people’ The Mehndi was held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Chester a few days before the main wedding and this was when Farrah had her henna beautifully applied and Zia was basically made to perform several tasks all of which involved him loosing money all complimented by fantastic dancers to finish.

Part 2 to follow in a few days.... boy is it worth the wait Dx

Wedding Photography at The Vincent Hotel: Darren & Jane

I love hearing peoples stories regarding why they chose the themes for their weddings & Darren & Janes was no different, Jane a girl from Southport meets Darren a boy from Wigan so obviously the theme is pies and uncle Joes mint balls & beaches and toffee rock. Its just as well that Southport & its beaches are a location I love taking photographs at as I seem to be spending a lot of time emptying sand out of my shoes but I really don’t mind as I always get some gorgeous images. The reception was at the chic Vincent Hotel in the centre of Southport, what a cool venue this is, perfect for my style of photography
Thanks to Darren & Jane for a great day, full of laughter & great images. D x

Zia & Farrah's Pre Wedding Shoot

As I post this I am sooo excited, tomorrow (friday) Jane & I are shooting our first Mehndi in Chester & then on sunday the full on Indian Wedding at the stunning Thornton Manor as Zia & Farrah start a new journey in their life. A few weeks ago Zia & Farrah braved the Southport wind for a few shots of them on the beach and over coffee and cake we discussed all the splendour that their wedding would have.
