Dunham Massey Wedding Photography – Claire & Chris

Dunham Massey Wedding Photography – Claire & Chris

 

Claire & Chris were married recently at St Vincent de Paul church in Altrincham, with their reception at Dunham Massey.  I caught up with Claire, aka Lady Gaga (that was my nick name for her…but she gets it all the time, apparently!) at her sister’s house, safely in the very capable hands of Jodie . I’ve worked with Jodie a time or two before and it was great to see her again…

It was great being back at Dunham, giving me the opportunity to show more of my Dunham Massey Wedding Photography. I simply love the place…and the three weddings I’ve covered this summer alone…

We were running slightly late due to the traffic mostly. With just over 20 minutes at our disposal, we had to really shift to get the Bride & Groom portaits done, and get things back on track. Simple! 😉

With around 20 minutes for a few family group shots, we headed off into The Stables for the reception…

Dunham Massey Wedding Photography // Amarjit & Andrew

 

Amarjit and Andrew were married recently at Manchester University, with a reception at The Axe and Cleaver in Dunham Massey. I photographed Amarjit & Andrew’s E-Shoot recently on Stanage Edge, and we plan to go back for a post wedding shoot in summer.

Amarjit was a guest at a wedding I photographed a couple of years back, and it wasn’t until our viewing meeting that the penny dropped – Amarjit had featured in one of my favourite wedding images of all time, also taken at Dunham Massey – at their friends Rebecca and Andrew’s wedding…

 

One of my favourite images – a wedding walk through the grounds of Dunham Massey, from Rebecca & Andrew’s wedding – complete with a laughing Amarjit!

 

So I was honoured to be asked to produce their Dunham Massey Wedding Photography! Amarjit & Andrew’s wedding was an intimate, but classic event. From the The Axe and Cleaver, a vintage bus took and Andrew and the majority of the wedding party to the council chambers at Manchester University for the ceremony, whilst Amarjit was having her preparations at home.The University was chosen since it meant something special to the pair of them – they studied and graduated there…hence the tongue-in-cheek shoot at the top of the page…all good fun!

I remember shooting one of the very first weddings at the University, and it’s a fantastic venue to work at – efficiently run by Liz and the team. Christie’s Bistro is worth a visit alone, as is the museum…complete with scale replica T-Rex. The day went well, with the weather improving constantly from a drizzly start, to full-on sunshine for the ceremony and following proceedings…which made the difference – because there was ice cream to be had – twice in fact, both at the University and at Dunham. I missed the opportunity at the University…(was a little busy somehow!), but got to the back of the queue at Dunham, for a well earned ten-minute break, before we moved on for some formal images at the mill pond.

hese are some of my favourites from the day…mostly the D3s on duty for these….as ever, any comments are welcome!

Celebrating The Wedding of Alex & Chris at Dunham Massey

*****

Alex & Chris were married at Dunham Massey recently. A proper summer wedding, meant ‘proper’ rain too…threatening to spoil the party. But as a ‘seasoned’ Dunham Massey Wedding Photographer, I was prepared for everything the weather could throw at us that day! No bridal preps were required for this wedding; nope, Alex wanted a little privacy, giving me chance to catch up with Chris and the guests at Church. The weather was not looking brilliant for the day, but fingers crossed things would brighten up a bit for us.

Chris wanted the images to like very film-like. So…they are… 😉
