On Saturday 14th May I got to photograph the beautiful Wedding of Alice & Michael. This is not the first Wedding I have photographed for the family, I photographed Alice's sister's Wedding almost 3 years ago - and her other sisters beautiful baby boy. It is always lovely when I know the majority of the Wedding group well makes for a very relaxed family when it comes to photographing them.
I started with Alice at her parent's house where the bridesmaids, Alice, and her parents were getting ready a hive of hair and makeup.
When everyone was ready we headed off to St Andrew's Church in Oakenshaw. The Bridesmaids and Mum were picked up via the gorgeous car that had been organised as a surprise for the Bride. Even I knew about the surprise, and so did the groom - Alice couldn't believe that people had managed to keep secrets from her about the Wedding but she was over the moon!
The service was lovely, there were no tears from either Alice or Michael - but - there were lots of laughs and definitely plenty of love!
After the ceremony, we headed outside to the lovely grounds of the church for Confetti, photographs on Grandad's Bench and of course under the beautiful Blossom Tree before we headed off to The Manor Golf Club for more photographs and to party!
Having been to the golf club before for her sister's Wedding, I was conscious to give Alice and Michael different images. What I love about the grounds at the golf club - is that there are so many different little nooks and crannies that make for great beautiful photographs.
Normally I work with the group shots first, however when we arrived at the golf club the golf buggies were already ready for us so we jumped on them first and did the group shots when we came back - including Parents, Bridesmaids and Groomsmen and much more. We did some additional shots after the Wedding Breakfast due to timing constraints. The best thing I love about photographing full day Weddings.
And not forgetting the Alice & Michael's gorgeous little boy Lucas!
Thank you for letting me share your day with you and capturing these memories for you to treasure forever.
