Bridal Preparations

Bridal Preparations..

It can be totally manic or really chilled and relaxed. Yup, I am of course referring to morning bridal preparations.

Everyone is here, makeup artists and hair dressers, are all set to make everyone look amazing. The few hours before the ceremony are some of my favourite times of the day and can produce some really nice photo’s. I do my best to stay out of the way in order to capture the mix of emotions that can occur. Right up the the moment when dad sees his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time.

Lydia and Marks Wedding

Going back to the crazy hot summer we had last year for today’s awesome wedding. Lydia and Mark held their ceremony at the beautiful St Andrews Church Penrith. We then all went down to the shores of Windermere to Low Wood Bay Hotel for the wedding breakfast and reception.

Families and guest were also treated to a surprise lake cruise on Windermere, it is safe to say that the Prosecco was flowing and everyone had a fabulous time.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome..

Laura and Jonnys Wedding

Todays outing was down to the wonderful Abbey House Hotel in Barrow. For Laura and Jonnys wedding, it is always such a pleasure to work at this venue, all the staff are so friendly and helpful and the hotel grounds provide a spectacular backdrop for some great photography.

Part of the gardens where converted into a laser clay pigeon shooting range and all of the guests had a fantastic time. I declined the opportunity as I just knew I would not manage to hit a single one :-).

The happy couple decided to surprise the guests with two singing waiters. This went down really well and even prompted a dancing session in the middle of the wedding breakfast room.

Thank you to you all for making us feel so at home..

I am going to take everyone back to the glorious days we had in September for today’s preview.

Jessica and Elliot held their wedding ceremony at St George’s United Reform Church in the beautiful village of Thornton Hough and then we went on to Inglewood Manor. The hotel and grounds never fail to impress no matter what the weather is doing, and lends itself to some awesome photography opportunities.

We must thank everyone attending the wedding for treating us almost like family members, we had a fantastic time and where made to feel really welcome.

Jamie-Lee and Adams Wedding Day

Going back to the fabulous summer we had this year and it was another scorcher of a day for Jamie-Lee and Adams wedding, this time we were at the Inn on the Lake Glenridding. We consider it a privilege to be able to work here, the lake and mountains provide such an amazing backdrop.

We had a fantastic day with Jamie-Lee and Adam, and the children certainly kept us on our toes and provided some entertaining photo opportunities. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.. :-) x

Lynn and Tims Wedding Day

Sunny Stockport for todays wedding. Lynn and Tim held their ceremony at Norbury Church in Hazel Grove before moving on to the amazing Mere Court Hotel for the wedding breakfast and reception. 

A great friend of ours, Mike Cullerton, was Master of Ceremonies with his very own inimitable style of laughs, but all the time keeping an eye on proceedings - it is always great to meet up with him.

Another first for us today was Stuart Barkley who was there to provide a live painting of the wedding breakfast, he even invited the bride and groom to add a few little touches to the finished art work.

The evening reception went of with a bang (literally) with 2 enormous confetti cannons.
