Every wedding, like yours I know, will bring it’s own people and personalities and it’s own moments. Not necessarily those expected shots but those that just come together in their own way. These are the gems that are found in the day and there are always more than a few; that’s what I look forward to finding. So I thought I’d share some with you from 2015! 15 of them for now. Just cannot wait to find more in 2016. The best photos are the ones you’ll never think of before they happen..
Karen & Geoff’s Wedding: Out on the hillside for a Tipi wedding. Then the rainbow appears in between the clouds and the rain and we are there. Never planned and just how it should be!
Tracey and Andy’s Wedding: Tracey left individual, personal notes for all of her guests on the table. There was a beautiful silence as everyone read them all at the same time. So touching and none more so than seeing the tears appear soon after.
Fran and Simon’s Wedding: All the way down in sunny Torquay you find a brilliant couple, an artist on the beach and a view from a bridge. It says it all!
Lyndsay & Marcus’s Wedding: Like no other ceremony I’ll be at. If the ring doesn’t want to go on then just give it some welly. Welly and more at this wedding. I love them for all of their moments that day..
Rachel & Paul’s Wedding: Chinese Lanterns. The brilliant day that was carried it’s on sad byline. A family loss before the wedding was saluted by a beautiful send off on one of the very last frames of the day.
Jenna & Matthew’s Wedding: Who goes to their reception on a tractor? In the very ordinary scene of the pub on a road with parked cars…along drives Jenna & Matthew, the newly weds.
Stacey & Mathew’s Wedding: A quirky shot in some ways but the real story behind this was that Mathew was almost killed by the Taliban on duty in Afghanistan. Paying tribute to his mum and dad at the speeches, it wasn’t just his parents that felt the emotion.
Sophie & Lawrence: We’d planned a shoot before the wedding which we had to cancel again and again to disappointment all round. But then the chance came and we went to the Cow & Calf in Ilkley. A there opened up a theatre of light! The stage is set for next year!
Cheryl & Dave’s Wedding: I say!! There’s no need for that young lady! I’m just doing my job……. purely innocent I’m sure
Emma & Stuart’s Wedding: Just a wonderful moment as the sun fell on Emma and Stu’s day. A brilliant couple; just laughter from start to finish and he said he didn’t ever make a good photo…
Kerry and Ian: It always feels like an adventure with people when you meet and know you’ll be there for the most special day of their lives. Like an adventure you want to look around and soak up the moments and the times. As Kerry, Ian and I met up for an afternoon out up looms the bridge at Rivington Pike. It just symbolised that journey and passing through into 2016 and toward their day in July..
Gill and Ray’s Wedding: Mum and daughter just before the ceremony.
Ness & Gaz’s Wedding: Haha! Just defined these two. They never stopped laughing all day. So uplifting and beautiful. So just doing a few shots outside the beautiful old church of St Mary’s in Barnoldswick we ended up with this quirky number. I didn’t ask what it meant…
Kerry & Subir’s Wedding: The place. The place where you get married. Sometimes you walk into that place and you can feel and sense things before they happen. Before a soul witnessed the occasion St Wilfred’s church in Grappenhall opened it’s doors.
Karen & Geoff’s Wedding: Wedding days are about friends as much as family in many ways. This photo has behind it a truly wonderful friendship which has it’s own story. A magic moment that only needs the holding of hands to symbolise that story.
