Last Thursday was a very special day for me as a wedding photographer. I was at Crewe Hall in Cheshire for the wedding of a friend who I have known for many years. The bride Alison, is a musician and we played for many years in the same band together, ending up sat next to each other. So we know each other well. It was a real privilege to be able to share her and Sean’s special day.
The day started with her getting ready at her parents house in Crewe before heading to St Peter’s Church for the wedding ceremony. Sean and Alison arrived at the church (late!) in a great Bentley – Sean works for Bentley in Crewe and they kindly provided the wedding car. The church is very small and I had to stay at the back for the wedding photographs as there was no room near the altar, but still managed to get some great shots.
Unfortunately the Cheshire summer weather let us down once again as the heavens opened as the wedding finished, meaning we made good use of our many umbrella’s to keep the wedding party and guests dry.
Crewe Hall was its usual spectacular self – set in hundreds of acres of Cheshire countryside it provides a stunning backdrop for wedding photographs and is one of the favourite venues for all the wedding photographers I know (we founded the Cheshire Wedding Photographers Association over a year ago and regularly meet with other wedding photographers in Cheshire, so we get feedback on their thoughts regarding wedding venues)
The rain stopped just in time for the arrival of the bride and groom at Crewe Hall and stayed dry for the ‘formal’ pictures. It was really strange sat eating my meal with the other guests – I’m usually in the bar eating a plate of sandwiches during this part of the wedding!. After the wedding breakfast was finished I put on my ‘other hat’ and picked up my trumpet to play in the band which formed part of the evening entertainment.
It was a truly memorable day for me and would like to thank Alison, Sean and their families – (and all at Crewe Hall) for allowing me to share their wedding with them. Have a great honeymoon in Mexico and see you on your return.
A few pictures from the wedding can be seen below along with a short video montage (these videos are provided free of charge to all our wedding clients and make a great present to send to your guests along with your thank you cards)
