I met Mike and Karen after a friend who worked as a wedding coordinator at Britannia Hotel, Standish kindly recommended me to them. They advised me it was only going to be a small gathering of close friends and family for the ceremony and afternoon meal.
I arrived at Wrightington Country Hotel and Spa a short time before the ceremony began to document the morning with herself and her daughter. Karen was getting her hair cut as I walked into the room so I took this opportunity to capture the little details as I always do. Her Mum was around enjoying the build up and was lovely to see so many smiles.
I headed downstairs and left mother and daughter to have their own time together before proceedings began. I met with Mike who seemed in great spirits along with their guests. During the ceremony it felt so calming yet so full of emotions. I always love being part of something special and seeing these two tie the knot was delightful.
Afterwards I had a short time to capture group shots and a few more personal ones of them both before they headed to their room for the afternoon/ evening reception.
I wish Mike and Karen all the best for their married lives together :-
