Rivington pre-wedding photos | Joel & kezia

Wherever these two are in the world, as long as there is a ‘Slug and Lettuce’, they’re happy. This is where Bolton couple Kez and Joel had their first date in Harrogate after a trip to Leeds. Joel met Kez through a mutual friend Jack when she was fourteen at a youth event in her Dad’s church. They became friends and where amazed at how much they had in common. Kez felt she had met someone who really understood her and they would talk for literally hours (and hours) on the phone! A few years of friendship later (after asking her Father’s permission to date) Kez and Joel got together and this summer they get married!

We were absolutely gutted when we realized we were already booked on Joel and Kez ‘s wedding day but thankfully our friend Danny has saved the day and offered to take the pictures. Joel and his amazing family go to my mum’s church and I still wanted to be part of the celebrations and give them a wedding pressie so I suggested a practice shoot. Pre-wedding sessions are useful because you can choose to have it when the weather is beautiful and sunny and it’s a time where the couple can be alone, stop planning and take time out before the big day. For the photographs I suggested Anglezarke at Rivington and it turned out that Joel and Kez love it there too! It was great getting to know you both, have an amazing day! Cat xx

Manchester Castlefield pre wedding photos | Jill & Paul

After booking their forthcoming wedding at The Lowry Hotel in Manchester, Jill and Paul met up with us at the Trafford Centre last summer to chat about their wedding photography. We jumped at the chance of taking pictures of their big day in the city and suggested a pre-wedding shoot around the same area. Castlefield is beautiful and formed a great backdrop on a quiet Tuesday evening last week. Here are a few of the images.

Abbeywood Estate wedding photography | Claire & Phils evening party

Here’s a few more snaps from Claire and Phil’s amazing Cheshire wedding day at Abbeywood Estate in Delamere. The venue proved to be  an ideal backdrop for Claire and Phil’s English garden wedding and the evening reception was held in the glass conservatory so we still felt like we where still in the garden. This provided perfect light to take natural pictures. My favourite area was the cafe overlooking the garden. I love these unique and quirky images of Claire the bride. After the speeches and coffees we set up the Photo Booth as an activity for guests in-between the meal and the evening party. This went down really well with the wedding guests who enjoyed posing and dressing up for the camera. I’m sure Phil and Claire will have laugh looking back through these photos! The band ‘The Jay Bees’ played for the couple’s first dance and throughout the night. We stayed for a glass of red wine and enjoyed the music after we finished the photography, we just didn’t want to leave such a brilliant party and a great atmosphere! For more photos from the day, see the Abbeywood wedding ceremony here.
