Carolyn and Andrew
Carolyn and Andrew got married 10 years to the day after they first got together, and are a couple clearly still head over heels with each other. The wedding reception was at the stunning Inglewood Manor just outside of Chester.
I started the day documenting Carolyn and her bridesmaids getting ready at her parent’s house, as always without instruction or direction, capturing the day unfolding. Andrew was around the corner getting ready with his best man and some friends. Due to the close proximity I was able to get some preparation shots of the groom as well as the bride – always a great bonus to capture this side of the morning.
The wedding ceremony took place at the idyllic St Michael’s church in Shotwick. As I captured Andrew welcoming his guests dark clouds loomed overhead, and when Carolyn arrived perfectly on time, these clouds produced some of the heaviest rainfall I have experienced as a wedding photographer. Not to be deterred by the rain, I rather enjoyed the stormy skys in the images, I braved the lightning as guests ran to the safety of the church and Carolyn and her bridesmaids waited in their Rolls Royce’s for the rain to subside.
The thunderstorm passed, and Carolyn looked radient as she walked to the church for a beautiful ceremony. As the newlyweds and their guests left the church, the congratulations and celebrations began. Arriving at Inglewood manor, the sky was blue, and the umbrellas had been swapped to sunglasses, talk about a change in the weather!
Everyone enjoyed the sun, drink and canapés whilst the sting quartet played for all. Moving speeches followed (complete with northern humour for southerner Andrew!), and led to the evening reception complete with drinking, dancing and a magician!
Some of my favourite images from the day are below. More images can be found on my facebook page, and guests can view all the images via the “client area” of my website. Please feel free to leave a comment….
