Colshaw Hall Wedding Photography

Becci & Aaron commissioned for their Colshaw Hall Wedding Photography well over a year ago. It was to be my first visit to Colshaw Hall – one of the most exclusive and luxurious Cheshire wedding venues, so I was really looking forward to it. The weather promised much, but alas didn’t deliver…ah well. Not to be disheartened, I grabbed the Nikons and headed to capture Becci & Aaron’s wedding at Colshaw Hall.

The Stables at Colshaw Hall

Colshaw Hall has a stunning purpose-built ‘chapel’ for wedding ceremonies. This ceremony hall can seat up to 180 guests, and is a perfect location for the ceremony. Guests can walk up the short pathway from The Peel Suite to The Stables, whilst the bride and bridesmaids are safely ‘delivered’ in a fantastic buggy!

I caught up with the girls as they were finishing theirs and each other’s makeup. A great team effort this was. I also met up with the talented James Wray Lang again on video duties. James is one of the best and most respected videographers in the business…well worth checking out if you’re getting married!

Cheshire wedding venue styling

Becci and Aaron’s reception styling and ‘all things flowers’ were designed and supplied by the lovely ladies at Lily Rose Events. The bouquets and buttonholes looked stunning…but the Peel Suite was simply gorgeous! I hope my images do the room styling justice – it was beautiful…

Cheshire Wedding Ceremony

As the ceremony time approached, I caught up with Aaron and the wedding guests as they arrived at The Peel Suite. Though the weather was starting to fade, spirits remained high…and stayed high all day. What weather? 🙂 As the groomsmen made their way to The Stables, I just had enough time for a few portraits of Becci, who was looking stunning.

Cheshire Wedding and Events Singer

Aaron never told me on the day about his alter-ego…but here is is in full swing, so to say. A very talented singer it seems (always the quiet ones, eh Aaron?). Check him out HERE….

Cheshire Wedding Photography

I approached Becci & Aaron’s wedding slightly differently to my normal approach. This needed to ‘feel’ a little more traditional than simply documentary or reportage wedding photography. Our schedule allowed for this too, so it was nice to slow things down a little and have a little fun inside the hall (the grounds were simply too wet from a week of serious rain!) So…after a few family group shots, we moved inside for a little ‘chill time…’

Cheshire Wedding Magician

As the speeches finished, and the toasts made, it was time to step things up a gear. Cue….Sam Fitton. THE best events magician around, and a total live wire. Simply the best award-winng wedding and events magician I have ever worked with…book him if you can. Sam wowed the guests with his close up magic. I was allowed to photograph anything I wanted too…and even the high speed Nikons revealed nothing. So I still have no idea how he does it…

As the evening got into full swing, Sam and I passed the gauntlet to the talented Six15 Events to fill the dancefloor…

Laura & James were married at ‘The Titanic Hotel’ in Liverpool recently. Based opposite The Pier Head, 30 James Street Hotel was the original White Star office for the Titanic – here’s a quote from the hotel’s website:

” The Grade II* listed building was built for the Ismay, Imrie and Company shipping company, which later became known as the White Star Line. Following the death of founder Thomas Ismay, his son, J Bruce Ismay, became chairman and managing director of the company, and created some of White Star Line’s most famous ships, including RMS Titanic, whose port of registry was the White Star Line headquarters, which now serves as 30 James Street, a Titanic-themed hotel.”

liverpool_wedding_photographer_01

The Titanic, it’s history and subsequent discovery are one of my guilty pleasures – I have a few books on the subject, here at MCP HQ – so it was a ‘no-brainer’ to accept the invitation to photograph Laura & James’ wedding day at such an iconic building. I love working in Liverpool too – the sheer scale of some of the buildings in and around Pier Head…plus THAT wonderful Town Hall. So, here is my maiden voyage as a 30 James Street Hotel Wedding Photographer.

liverpool_wedding_photographer_02liverpool_wedding_photographer_03liverpool_wedding_photographer_04

I caught up with Laura and the girls at 30 James Street as the rain was falling, and the weather looking ominously dreadful for the day – but anybody who is / has been in a band uses the saying ‘Bad sound check, great gig’. I use this as my philosophy too. Yep, I did five years in bands to earn that right 😉 I am alwyas optimistic that the wetaher will break, even if only time to shoot a few bride and groom portraits and family group shots. Today was no exception, and through the rain spattered windows, I assured the girls that ‘the gig would be good’…gulp.

And, as if by magic, the rain disappeared and the sun came out, an hour before the ceremony over at St Sebastian’s in Kensington.

liverpool_wedding_photographer_18liverpool_wedding_photographer_19liverpool_wedding_photographer_20liverpool_wedding_photographer_21liverpool_wedding_photographer_22liverpool_wedding_photographer_23Laura arrived bang on time and gave me one of my favourite images of the day….here she is having just emerged from the Rolls Royce with her ‘pit crew’ attending to her, quietly and as if second nature. You’ll notice Stuart peeping into shot top left, quietly doing his thing too; a great videographer to work alongside, and one as geeky as me when it comes to talking cameras, technical and all things post production. Brilliant to work with and great company too!

(Pssst! I loved the wonky Silver Lady on the Rolls… )

From church, we were off to The Pier Head for a few Bride & Groom portraits. I travelled with Laura & James to save time and be more ‘live’ with the photography…even down to capturing their wedding day ‘selfie’ which appeared on Facebook later that day…and no, they didn’t spot me taking it.

With a two pronged ‘attack’ by James’ Best Men, which was hilarious…and pretty embarrasing for poor James at times, the wedding breakfast and speeches were duly finished.

Laura & James invited Stuart and I up to their suite…just to see was believing! Incredible! We grabbed a couple of images before the evening celebrations began, and Laiura & james hit the dnace floor. Now…we were in Liverpool, with a Liverpool couple, at a wedding venue in the heart of Liverpool’s Pier Head. Their first dance song was an Oasis track…a brilliant choice too…but all bets were now off 😉

On The 7th Wedding Photographer

Roxy & Myles’ wedding photos from this unique Media City wedding venue

Roxy & Myles were married recently at On The 7th in Media City. It was to be my first wedding there, and I can honestly say it’s simply brilliant. For an urban wedding, On the 7th is perfect; it’s location in the middle of Media City makes for a unique wedding experience.

I caught up with Roxy and the girls at their home in Manchester. On board with me for the day was Craig from Get Reel Media – a really nice chap too, and we worked effortlessy together all day. How it should be!

Here is another example of my Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography. Jacqui & David were married recently at Manchester Town Hall, one of my favourite wedding venues to work at. Commissioned around a year ago, these images form the highlights from their fantastic wedding day.

Unique Manchester Wedding Venue

Manchester Town Hall is a firm favourite amongst the Manchester Wedding Photographers, and rightly so. Every visit seems different somehow, with both new challenges and creative opportunities. An awesome venue. I was really looking forward to Jacqui & David’s Town Hall wedding; they are very relaxed…possibly a little too relaxed at times (only kidding!), but from our first meeting, we were ‘all knowing where we were going with this one…’

Beeston Manor Wedding Photography

Keely & Craig’s  wedding photos at the unique Beeston Manor wedding venue in Lancashire

Keely & Craig were married recently at Beeston Manor – one of the busiest and most sought-after wedding venues in Lancashire. The couple booked me for their Beeston Manor Wedding Photography from a previous wedding fair at the venue, hosted by Little White Books. Here are the highlights from the day….from ridiculous flash flood showers to almost cloudless skies, seemingly every hour!

kc_wedding001

Beeston Manor Wedding

Beeston Manor is set in the heart of the Lancashire countryside, situated between Preston and Blackburn. Housed in a restored 16th-century sandstone barn, this family-run guesthouse on 140 acres is 3.1 miles from the M6 motorway . With rustic-elegant rooms featured oak beams, pink sandstone walls, oak furniture and high-end en suite bathrooms, Beeston Manor is one of the most popular wedding venues in Lancashire. Expertly run by Janet, John and the ‘human dynamo’ that is Amy, Beeston Manor offers everything you’d need for your perfect Lancashire Wedding Photography…even a helicopter!

Rural Wedding Venue in Lancashire

Beeston Manor has a lovely rural feel about it, and is both a very unique venue – plus it’s also an exclusive one too. A Beeston Manor Wedding is always great to photograph. From the stunning ceremony room, through to the landscaped gardens, and the brilliant natural array of farm buildings around the venue, it’s a wedding photographer’s dream. Mix that with a bit of Lancashire sunshine, and voila!

kc_wedding024

I met Keely and the girls having their hair and makeup done upstairs at Beeston Manor. In full high spirits, things were going well. Apart from the torrential rain showers. Hmmm…wonder if we’d beat them today?

Weddings at Beeston Manor

The ceremony room at Beeston Manor was set up nice and early, allowing me to grab a few images like these. The peace was soon to be broken though (in a nice way!) once the guests arrived and we were a few minutes away from the ceremony.

Lancashire Bride, Lancashire Wedding Venue

Keely and Craig were fairly local to Beeston Manor, so it was perfect for them and their families too. As the ceremony time approached, Keely was putting on her wedding dress and making those final touches, ably aided by her bridesmaids. Craig, however was greeting the guests in the bar…but not drinking alcohol I hasten to add!

Stunning Lancashire Wedding

As the guests took their seats, it was time for the wedding party to appear. Bridesmaids and flowergirls first…then that all-important gap befor Keely and her dady walked down the aisle to that almost inaudible rush of gasps and delight. Craig suddenly changed from the slightly anxious groom, to a very excited, proud man as he saw his bride walking towards him.

Wedding Reception in Lancashire

With the ceremony finished, and the necessary paperwork done, it was time to step things up a gear. By now the rain had gone and the sunshine was threatening to emerge at some point. We quickly shot the family groups and everybody started mingling. A couple of showers sent us back inside for a while, but the smart money was still on Mr Sunshine at evens. We should see…

A Perfect Lancashire Wedding Venue

As the showers hit, I had time to photograph the wedding breakfast room. It looked stunning. Creative Cover Hire had done a brilliant job. The rain can do it’s worst now, for the next couple of hours or so. But no! Gone, instantly. And the sun shone brightly as the guests finished their drinks. We had time for a few portraits inside and out whilst the guests made their way through…

Wedding photos at Beeston Manor

With the weather now firmly on our side, Keely, Craig and I ventured out for a few more wedding photos after the wedding breakfast and speeches. We had a good fifteen minutes or so to grab some very natural and relaxed Bride & Groom portraits, so we made use of the time. This was more like it! Natural moments, captured in a natural style with no forced direction from me.

Then we were off for the cake cutting and first dance. The bridesmaids were already in full flow on the dancefloor when we arrived back…

Mitton Hall Wedding Photography – Keri & Tom

 Mitton Hall Wedding Photography

Keri & Tom’s wedding photos from Mitton Hall near Clitheroe, Lancashire

Keri & Tom were married recently at Mitton Hall. Hailed by many in the wedding industry as one of the very best wedding venues in the North West, and with good reason. The venue is run with meticulous precision, overlooked by Dave – and the attention to detail, the food, and overall service by the whole staff is excellent. Mitton was Keri & Tom’s first choice for their wedding, and kindly asked, sorry told me I was to produce their Mitton Hall Wedding Photography – no was not going to be an option… 😉 Nice problem to have I thought!

The weather was glorious, a perfect Spring day, so I shot Keri & Tom’s formal images with this in mind. The photography style for their wedding is slightly different to my usual ‘look’. This is deliberate, because their album is going to be a stunning hand made fine art leather book, and hand printed on fine art cotton-based paper. Gorgeous!

On hair and makeup duties were the talented and award-winning team, Flossy & Leigh, with videography supplied by Charlene at Love Gets Sweeter Films. I say supplied; Charlene is normally behind the camera, but was Chief Bridesmaid (and also my brilliant wedding planner) for the day. It was funny watching her being a guest all day…though she did grab a camera for a few minutes in the morning whilst family were exchanging gifts…and hugs.

You may remember Marvin from Keri & Tom’s E-Shoot a month or so back? Well he was brought to Mitton Hall as a surprise for the happy couple…and featured in most of the formals! Thanks again to Keri & Tom for allowing you to show my Mitton Hall Wedding Photography. Hope you like it…

mitton_hall_wedding_photographer_71As we approached First Dance time, Keri danced with her dad first of all – a lovely Daddy-Daughter moment. Both of them looked so happy together, and had a great time. As the song finished, more guests entered ‘the arena’ for a waltz -again, a lovely touch, and a calm, controlled introduction as to what was to follow. I say calm, because when Keri & Tom hit the floor, they blew us all away with their routine. Full-on, choreographed and brilliantly done – they had the place in uproar with the applause! But…not to be outdone, as the evening’s partying progressed, a sudden ‘Flash Mob’ appeared on the dance floor. Subtly at first, Keri & Charlene led the way with a synchronised routine…followed by the bridesmaids, and then the mums! Awesome! A full on choreographed routine ensued – poor Tom stood, mouth open, and not believing what he saw…..the whole entourage put on oversized photo masks of Tom’s face (supplied quietly by yours truly from their E-Shoot!)..and hit a routine the late Michael Jackson would have approved of…. 😉

And there you have it – a brilliant emotion-fuelled day with an incredible Bride & Groom, fantastic family and friends, and a dance routines to match the best. Congratulations Keri & Tom – and thanks for having me on board to capture the day for you…
