Laura and Jeremy (‘Jez’) were married in Altrincham at St Vincent’s church, with a Marquee reception at the family home in Bowdon. This is an example of my Bowdon Wedding Photography, or Marquee Wedding Photography. Now based near Portsmouth, Laura wanted to be married at home in Bowdon, and by Rev Deacon John Penny – an old family friend. I had photographed Emily’s wedding, one of the bridesmaids at St Vincent’s and it was her recommendation for my services for Laura & Jez’ big day (thanks Emily!)
The day burst into sunshine at the right place, for a change – in fact it possibly burst a little too much for my liking (us wedding photographers are never satisfied)…but much better than the almost monsoon summer we’ve had.
As a surprise for Jez, Laura had hired a vintage VW Campervan to transport them in style; A brilliant choice.
Here are some of my favourites from the day, all overseen by Pink Pepper catering – especially Neil, who ran the reception with precision timing!

” Hi Mick, just returned from honeymoon to your amazing photos! Don’t know how we are going to choose the best ones! Laura”
You’d think putting three glasses of Champagne down on the grass for a quick formal shot would be a straight-forward process…right? Wrong! One casualty, and two almost tipped over….tragedy.
Sometimes we all need a little luck. This is my favourite shot of the day. Taken whilst the band were sound checking, I was sitting quietly in the garden when Laura appeared on her own. In ridiculously low light, I grabbed this shot at f/1.4 on my trusty 24mm lens and nailed it. Just. Laura loved this image too – her, at ‘home’ being the new Mrs Trigg…
