Interior, St Mary's, Eccleston

How this for an interior – amazing architecture. St Mary’s does not allow any photography in the Church once the service has started.


Confetti! I think it is generally a bit of a shock how aggressive this is to the bride and groom!!

I was not allowed any photos during the service but the Vicar is agreeable to going back into the Church after the service. I think it is worth it!

How lush is this shot?

Grosvenor Pulford Bridge.

A shot like this looks so straight forward but is amazingly hard to light, with a blinding sun in the background it is not easy getting detail in the sky and dress at the same time.

I had a ball at the wedding, it really was a brilliant day. Emily looked a million dollars and was the perfect princess.

We managed to do most the photos in an industrial area believe it or not for a slightly different feel, but I think on most of them it would be hard to tell.

In summary a brilliant Cheshire Wedding with wonderful people and so many children it was a blur! Top wedding.

The wedding of Jenny and Mark was a bit different, Jenny got ready for her big day in one of the suites in the magnificent and historic Ruthin Castle before a very relaxed service in Ruthing Registry office.

After the service the wedding breakfast was held in a truly outstanding  restaurant called Top of the Hill. The food was amazing.

After a lovely meal it was back to Ruthin Castle for the speeches. Ruthin is a beautiful town and well worth a visit, Jenny and Mark are lucky enough to be residents.

All in all it was a truly magical day with some amazing people. It not hard to love my job and even after 20 years as a professional I still have to pinch myself I get to record the biggest day of a persons life. It an honour and a privilege.
