A very chilled-out and tranquil morning with the bride getting ready, slowly turned into the most crazy and rushed bridal preparations witnessed! Very interesting photo opportunities though :-) The ceremony took place at the Old Chapel at Dukinfield where Groom and Groomsmen were all in good spirits despite the rain. Everything went without a hitch apart from the Groom nearly fainting and the Bride shedding an emotional tear.
Onto Shrigley Hall for some spirited group shots, some inside and some outside due to the wonderful English weather. The day slowly mellowed into a glorious Summer’s evening where we captured some stunning images of Emma & Paul before their party.

Cheryl & Ali
A fantastic new venue to start the month – Masson Farm and Swallow Barn at Matlock, Derbyshire. If you like your venue rustic, friendly and with amazing views of the Peak District then this is the venue for you :-) Cheryl and Ali fell in love with the venue at first sight and it’s not hard to see why! Another outdoor venue (we do seem to be finding all of these this year) the ceremony took place under the eaves of the barn with guests only just feeling a few drops of rain sat outside!
With rolling fields, wild flowers in the gardens, perfect bridesmaids and a fantastic view, what more could you ask for – just add Bride and Groom! With a barbeque for the wedding breakfast and a Supremes tribute act for entertainment, a memorable day was had by all.

Kim & Ben
Time to use the brollies again! Whilst sheltering in the very historic church of St James at Gawsworth, everyone must have been hoping and praying that God might do his stuff and stop the rain, if not just until the Bride managed to make her way from the lychgate to the church doors. Well, those prayers seemed to do the trick :-) A picture postcard English church provided the perfect backdrop for a group shot of all their guests before Bride and Groom were swamped with confetti at the lychgate. Kim and Ben then made the most of the break in the clouds for some shots around the church, making it back to the car and awaiting champagne just as the rains came once more.
Adlington Hunting Lodge for the reception, smaller group shots with just enough time for more photos of the newly wed’s before their wedding breakfast.
