I had the pleasure of photographing Catherine and Mikes wedding at Ordsall Old Hall in Manchester. It was an intimate service of 60 guests which tied in perfectly with the venue. when I visited the bride in the morning everything was so calm and peaceful. I got some great shots before I left for the service where Mike and his best man were greeting family and friends. after the service the guest had a chance to look around the museum which gave me chance to get the Bride & Groom alone for some photos around the gardens and with the VW camper van she arrived in. After some well deserved drinks and canapés they jumped in the VW and headed to Swinton Park Golf Club. The speeches took place before the meal and then they all sat down to a Chicken dinner. They all crowded round for the first dance to "You On My Mind In My Sleep" by Richard Ashcroft and let the evening in with some celebratory cigars.
The day was really laid back and made it easy as a wedding photographer to capture the day as it went by without having to stage anything.
