Well where do i begin to to describe Becky & Chris's beautiful day? ....it was so special , for many reasons!
The main reason being the love Becky & Chris have for one another! i dont think I've met a couple more in love, and i mean the kind of love you see in movies and the kind we all dream of having , they totally adore each other and have been together for many years, child hood sweet hearts infact and have been through so much together, and still have the kind of love you have when you first fall in love :) How blessed i am to be have the job of capturing such a beautiful thing :)
When your around two people in love like this , its beautiful and its exciting and you cant help but smile :)
When i first met Becky & Chris 2 years ago when they booked me to photograph their wedding, we all got on like we had known each other for ages, we clicked instantly, they both had really creative ideas and loved mine and i knew they would be up for any kind of ideas i would suggest on the day , photographs were really important to them , these are my perfect kind of clients :)
The ceremony was held in their local church in Manchester , it was such an emotional ceremony, Chris who is 6ft something is very much what his friends call " a gentle giant" , he cried from the moment the music began to play as Becky walked down the aisle! it was such a lovely moment ( as you will see in the pictures, there is a moment that i caught of Chris taking deep breaths trying to calm himself ) i love this black and white shot , i think it captures one of my favourite parts of the day, after all the years of hard work and planning and dreaming about , that moment is finally here, i love the intense atmosphere, the anicipation , the excitement and all the emotions, its such a special moment :)
And i do love to capture the tears, it sounds strange but i do , tears convey so much emotion in a photograph, and a wedding wouldn't be a wedding without tears ! :)
After the ceremony we did our large group shots and confetti shots and went on to the stunning Shrigley Hall :) I've been looking forward to photographing a wedding at this venue for a while! To look at , it definatly has the wow factor and the staff were so lovely and friendly especially a lovely young lady called Aj who was in charge on the day , she went above and beyond on the day :)
The venue has stunning views and so many pretty places for photographs, we even managed to get some golden hour shots ( this time is my favourite time to photograph , the time of day when the sun is about to set around an hour before, the light is just beautiful :)
What also makes a great wedding in my opinion is great guests! Having fun and friendly guests help create the atmosphere and this is another reason Becky & Chris's wedding was so wonderful! All their family and friends were so lovely , so much fun and danced from the music started playing and I'm pretty sure they would have all still have been dancing when it stopped! They were brilliant! Not forgetting their beautiful little boy Freddie who just so happens to be the most popular little boy I've met as everyone wanted to give him a cuddle he is just adorable :)
Just before i left everyone Chris insisted i had a jagerbomb with a large group of them ( of course i joined in ) :) , i downed mine then took the shot of the jagerbomb train! it was a great shot to end with !
As i hugged everybody and said my goodbyes i looked back one more time to take in the moment as i watched everyone dancing and having fun and its times like this i truly feel i have the best job in the world :)
The night sky was beautiful that night and so i took a shot of the starry sky as i drove off still hearing the faint sound of dancing and laughter!
Becky & Chris thank you so much for making me part of your beautiful , unforgettable day, i wish you all of the love and luck in the world , and i hope you always remain as happy as you was this day :)
Love Louise xxx
