I was so lucky to shoot Louise & Darren’s special day. It was a very intimate & affair & they only had close loved ones & friends attend their amazing day.
The day started off at Crewe town hall where Darren was with his best man while awaiting for Louise & her bridesmaids to arrive.
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 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.
