Michael and Rebecca were referred to me by the wedding coordinator of the Mercure Oak hotel in Wigan after a general chat regarding the couples special day. We met to go through their specific requirements whilst viewing the storybook wedding albums on offer in each of my packages. They were bowled over and asked me if I would officially photograph their wedding day which was also their anniversary.
The package they decided on included the bridal preparations and as always I arrived 3 hours before the ceremony began to document the build up. I captured the little details whilst Rebecca and her bridesmaid got ready. Before I knew it I realised I had to head downstairs to start documenting the build up of guests arriving and get a couple of formal shots of the groom and his best man.
The ceremony soon arrived and before I took my position at the front I quickly got
a shot of Rebecca and her father smiling together before they walked in. As always
the ceremony was lovely and Rebecca even had everyone laughing as she thought Michael
had placed the wrong ring on her finger :-
After signing the register the new Mr & Mrs headed down the aisle as husband and wife and waited outside to be congratulated by close friends and family. After the rain settled I asked everyone to head outside to get the group photographs done so they could soon relax and enjoy the day. The rain soon came back so myself and the happy couple walked around the venue looking for some hotspots for the more intimate shots of them together.
I left them to mingle with their guests as soon they were all going to head into the reception suite for the speeches and wedding breakfast. Afterwards they requested a couple more group shots before the first dance arrived.
I hope Michael and Rebecca had an amazing day and I wish them all the best in their married lives together.
