I wanted to share a wedding I had the pleasure of photographing recently. Sophie and James tied the knot at the beautiful Sale Town Hall, and it was certainly memorable!
As their photographer, it was great to be a part of the celebrations and capture all of their special moments. They had specifically booked me for my documentary approach to photography and my short coverage package, which is why my relaxed attitude fitted in well with the intimate atmosphere of their wedding. I photographed their ceremony and took some stunning portrait photos along the Bridgewater Canal. The weather forecast was calling for rain all day and when the bride and groom arrived, it was pouring rain. Nevertheless, they were still able to get some dramatic and romantic portraits in.
The groom arrived first, driving one of the bride’s dad’s vintage cars. As he stepped out in his satin pink jacket and black bowtie, I thought I watching a scene from a Bond Movie. Good coincidence that the groom’s first name is James!
The bride arrived in style, driven by her dad in another of his vintage cars. She looked amazing in her fitted satin dress.
The ceremony was a simple but romantic affair, with just close family and friends in attendance. There were tears of joy and laughter throughout, and it was clear that Sophie and James were head over heels in love. After the ceremony, we took some portraits along the Bridgewater Canal. Despite the earlier rain, we were lucky to get a blue sky with dramatic clouds, providing a perfect backdrop for some stunning photographs. My relaxed approach allowed the couple to feel comfortable, resulting in natural images.
After the photo session, the bride and groom headed to a local restaurant to meet their family for a meal. I was able to capture some lovely candid shots of the happy couple leaving. It was a truly special day and I feel so privileged to have been a part of it.
