After working hard with all the cool people I have met doing family photos in Manchester for a few months, I was looking forward to getting back to my main job as a wedding photographer.
Greg and Emma got married in the picturesque market town of Sandbach in leafy East Cheshire. The day started off with reports of rain for later in the day. When I arrived to photograph Emma and the girls it was starting to lightly rain although that didn’t dampen anyone's spirits. The bubbly Emma and equally fun bridesmaids were a joy to work with and after photographing the bridal preparation I raced down to catch Greg at the venue.
The ceremony took place in Sandbach Town Hall, a Victorian gothic hall which dates back to 1889 and has undergone refurbishment. It is such a stunning place, a perfect venue for a wedding.
By the time I got there Greg was anxiously waiting upstairs in the main hall and I quickly took a few shots of him. The guests were all present waiting for the beautiful bride to arrive.
Emma arrived in a limousine shortly after and we proceeded to usher her inside out of the rain and get the ceremony underway.
After the ceremony we luckily had a break from the rain so I took the opportunity to get a quick group shot in the main square, straight after the heavens opened again... One of the local cheese shops came out after seeing the wedding party and presented Greg with a complementary block of cheese, top bloke.
After a few hours of everyone enjoying themselves I got the chance to get some shots of Emma and Greg in the venue, making use of the cool reflections and lights in the upstairs bar.
As the night was drawing on and before the first dance and the spirits were high, Emma’s son’s band 'The Fever' came onto the stage and performed a few of their songs. I was blown away by the young guys talent, worth checking out as I think they'll go far.
After the set from 'The Fever' the first dance started; I photographed Greg and Emma dancing to Al Green, a perfect song to a perfect wedding. I finished shortly after this and slipped out of the venue while all the guests danced into the night.
