I first met Emma at my very first wedding fayre early last year. I hadn't ever done wedding fayres before as I have always worked from recommendations previously but I managed to get a slot, set up and met some lovely people. Emma came back to speak to me again and we arranged a little meeting so I could meet her Fiancé (Jonathan) and her amazing son (Joshua) and of course we could talk all things weddings.
A few meetings and almost a year later the day had finally arrived there was a little rain in the air but that didn’t damper the mood of the bride and her bridesmaids. They had rented a lovely little house in Leyland which had a traditional farm cottage look to it. Such a nice place to take photos and not having to worry about tidying up before too!
How gorgeous are these dresses?
The boys on the other hand where in the land of superheroes as they got ready. The boys were getting ready as the best man finished his speech. I love the superhero cufflinks and custom art. The special touch was the ring bag that was made out of a shirt from Emma's grandad who sadly passed away before the wedding. I love little touches like this. It makes the day even more special and significant.
The Church was lovely, high ceilings and gorgeous stained glass. A wonderful location for this amazing couple to tie the knot. With their family and friends around them they read their vows and exchanged rings. I always enjoy the ceremony whether it is a civil or church ceremony. People are declaring their love for each other and how they will always be there no matter what. Emma and Jonathan are a very strong couple and a lot has happened to them just in the past year since they booked me and I don’t know of a couple who when they state their vows they look so determined to live them out.
I must admit I am a sucker for a good confetti throw and I love Jonathan's expression in the last photo.
The reception was at Charnock farm, a location I have photographed before, the staff are still as friendly and welcoming to all the guests and us too. The speeches go of without a hitch although at one point Joshua declares “when are these going to end?!?” I think hunger has set in :). He doesn’t have to wait to much longer to which he is very happy.
Last but not least here are a few of my favourites from the day. The first one is shot in front of Emma's grandads restored truck she travelled in to her wedding - epic lady!
