The Christmas Wedding of Richard and Shelley was my first on of the festive season and was to take place at their home in Plumley near Knutsford in Cheshire.
The Wedding Ceremony was at Plumley Church just down the road from the Bride and Groom to be house and was to take place at 5 so I arrived to start the wedding photography of the bride getting ready just before 4pm.
The preparations were well underway and the wedding marquee looked amazing with a relaxed feel which the bridal couple had requested. I set to work capturing the natural images of the bride getting ready with a few tears and a lot of laughs as you can see from the images which Shelley made very easy for me .
It was then on to the church and with the ceremony being at 5pm it was very dark but with a few tricks of the trade it all added atmosphere to the wedding photography and it wasn’t too cold for Shelley .. I hope.
A short journey back to the couples home after the confetti shot at the church of course, and one was ready for the arrival of the newly married bride and groom and got the shot of the groom carrying the bride over the threshold, a first for me.
The wedding breakfast was a very relaxed affair with a constant stream of beautiful finger foods being circulated and whilst this was going on I captured natural images as well as the group shots the bride had requested.
The wedding speeches were next and then the first dance which can really deliver some great images as you can see from the ones I captured of Shelley and Richards.
The final shot was the cutting of the wedding cake and it was then time for me to go and prepare the images of their wedding day ..
