It was the 20th July & Paul & Jenny’s Big Day had arrived. The summer was one of the hottest on record & I thought it was going to be a beautiful day.
Only for it to pour down, it didn't put a dampener in things though, as Jenny said it couldn't of been more perfect, she was marrying the love of her life & the weather wasn't an issue.
 

The Bride & her maids started their day off in style, drinking champagne as they excitedly prepped for the big day ahead.

The service was at St Wilfreds Church in the small village of Grappenhall, Warrington which dates back to the medieval period.

The venue was at the Bell House just down the road from the church & was stunning. It has plenty hidden places for photo opportunities as it backs onto a walkway with lots of paths, trees & bridges to explore.

This Christening was at set at the beautiful St Chad's Church in the heart of Cheshire. Hidden away in the Cheshire set you have to travel at least a quarter of a mile & passing a farm to get to the church itself.

It was the 3rd March, & the time had come for Rebecca & Shaun's wedding at the Cottons Hotel & Spa in Knutsford Cheshire. It was also the week that the "Beast from the East" had arrived bringing with it bitter winds, heavy snow conditions & sub-zero temperatures, but that wasn't going to put a dampener on the day going ahead as planned.

Since shooting Shaun & Rebecca's engagement shoot at Marbury Park, I had the pleasure of hearing some exciting news, Rebecca was pregnant & would be in her third trimester during their wedding day, completing their family & making the wedding day extra special.

After a busy morning chilling & prepping for the day ahead (and a few pre-nervous drinks later), Shaun was dressed to impress along with their son Rhys & best man Matt, while the ladies were relaxing & getting ready in the bridal suite making themselves look beautiful & being pampered.

The ceremony took place at The Cottons Hotel & Spa & there after day ran perfectly from start to finish & everyone's emotions were running high. There were lots of laughter & tears as the day unfolded. 
It was a fun & relaxed wedding & I was made very welcome by family & friends as I mingled in & captured candid shots of Shaun & Rebecca's friends & family.

It was a pleasure shooting Shaun & Rebecca's wedding & witnessing them tied the knot & dance the night away. 

I met lots of characters, which made the day one I won't forget anytime soon, & would like to take the opportunity to thank Shaun & Rebecca for having me photograph their special day.

Hipping Hall Winter Wedding - John & Rachel

Hipping Hall is set in a stunning location situated in Cumbria in the Western Dales & is on the doorstep of Lancashire & Yorkshire.

This Boutique hotel dates back to the 17th century & is the perfect wedding venue to say I do.

It boasts beautiful scenery in & around the venue with sheep grazing in the meadows & rolling hills on the horizon you can see for miles around the Cumbrian countryside. 

As soon as I saw the hotel I couldn't believe how picturesque it was, I felt lucky to be apart of John & Rachel's special day.

This was an intimate wedding with only a handful of friends & family present for the prenuptials and for the day ahead. 

John and Rachel wanted a relaxed, quiet day & they certainly got that, they styled their beautifully theming it on "Hygge" which is a Danish craze for warmth or cosy. As this was a winter wedding & it was such a cold day, It was certainly styled with the weather and the scenery in mind.

The day was perfect although a little wet starting off (typical for the Lake District), the rain soon cleared up leaving it dry, giving me the opportunity to take plenty of outdoor pictures. 

I just want to thank John and Rachel for letting me take part in the most important day of their life's and capturing the memories for them to treasure.
