Celebrating The Wedding of Keri & Tom at Mitton Hall in 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 be their Mitton Hall Wedding Photographer – no was not going to be an option… 😉

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!

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…
