Styal Lodge Wedding Photographer
The Wedding of Laura & Jonathan at Styal Lodge
Here is another example of my being a Styal Lodge Wedding Photographer Cheshire. Laura & Jonathan were married recently at this wonderful Cheshire venue, but had booked me well over a year ago previously – Laura likes to be organised! 😉
The day promised reasonable weather for a change – this was to be my fourth wedding ever at the Lodge, and only the second time I got to see the lake…such is our British Summer…or is that just us in the North West? Unfazed, we were hoping for the overcast morning to brighten up somewhat before the ceremony.
When I arrived at Styal Lodge, I had a double, no triple take. Laura and here two sisters are almost identical, and really threw me for a few seconds, until my client laughing raised her hand and put me out of my panic!
There was a lovely sense of fun in the bridal room. Mum opened the champagne, whilst the sisters giggled nervously about what the day was going to bring. Laura, quietly took everything in her stride. I think she was a little bit nervous, but managed to hide it well!
I’d love to apologise for leaving my car parked in the image above…but, alas, it wasn’t! I need a Volvo estate to prove I’m a photographer (obviously)…plus – the obligatory baby seat, Peppa Pig colouring books and odd pairs of wellies in the boot are purely optional extras. Anyway, I wouldn’t be able to fit my tripods into a Ferrari…so my wife tells me 😉
Jonathan and his two best men were in great spirits- the groom (slightly) nervously anticipating the organised chaos to ensue, but for now, enjoying the relative calm – which changed to mild fear when the registrars didn’t show! With around ten minutes before the ceremony, a car duly arrived and the unflappable duo emerged to calm Jonathan’s nerves. Phew!
Pete Turner was s the day’s surprise – wowing everyone with his close up magic and sleight of hand. With his consent, I got to photograph him from point-blank, but even the camera never picked up on his methods – brilliant entertainment, and very funny with it too…highly recommended!
With the heartfelt and very funny speeches over, it was time for a few quick shots outside, where it was a little cooler.
The room design, decor and menu was expertly created by Sarah & Neil at Pink Pepper . These guys really know how to run a wedding, and I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. These guys are just brilliant, and really know how to run a wedding. As the evening drew in, it was time for the cake cutting and first dance, with fabulous entertainment from the very popular band, The Rush Band.
It had been a full-on day for me – very busy, but now time to head off home and let the Nikons cool down…
