Pre-wedding | 16.03.2011

Here’s a little peek at a couple of shots from the very gorgeous and lovely Leona & Will’s pre-wedding shoot this morning. We had a little saunter around Fletcher Moss Park in Didsbury and shot some beautiful images of the two of them. I can’t wait for their big day – Leona & Will are getting married at Sandhole Oak Barn (amazing venue!) and there’s a Charlotte Balbier influence on the dress and bridesmaids which is going to be VERY cool!

So…on with the sneak preview…!!!

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photographs – Sarah and Matt

Weddings | 07.06.2010

Here it is! The very gorgeous and lovely Sarah & Matt’s amazing wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn! It was a real pleasure working with Sarah & Matt not only on the day itself but during the build up, the pre-wedding shoot, everything along the way was great fun and really relaxed – which really helped in getting some great images on the day.

I arrived at ‘The Granary’ at Sandhole in the morning where Sarah & the girls were getting ready…

Matt & the lads had nipped over to the pub for a little ‘loosener’ before the guests started arriving – I met up with them on their way back…

I made the short walk with Sarah, her Dad and her lovely bridesmaids, Sarah, Kath and Lee from The Granary to The Barn itself where Matt and all the guests were waiting…

I love this!  This is the moment that Matt promised to spend ‘the rest of the day’ with Sarah – he was supposed to say ‘rest of my life’ of course!

Before the wedding breakfast I spent a few minutes with Sarah & Matt and their bridal party…

I loved the idea of this shot and Sarah & Matt played the part perfectly – quite an old fashioned, ‘formal’ look to it – which works brilliantly!

Right at the end of the day, just as the light was fading we got a little bit of broken cloud in the sky and this really beautiful, dramatic images…

Sarah & Matt had the totally amazing Dominic Halpin & The Honey B’s as their band and they were magnificent.  A seriously cool swing/rock n roll band made up of some very, very good musicians.

This really was a gorgeous wedding with the loveliest bride and groom you’re ever likely to meet!  It was my first time shooting at Sandhole Oak Barn and I have to say I really did enjoy working there.  The venue is beautiful and the staff were absolutely lovely – almost falling over themselves to make sure I was alright, fed and watered and knowing exactly what was happening and when.  I love it when the wedding day is as important to the venue and it’s staff as it is to the bride and groom.

Anyway – more to come very soon….!!!

Sarah and Matt’s pre-wedding shoot in Didsbury

Pre-wedding | 23.03.2010

This is the very lovely Sarah and Matt who are getting married at the very gorgeous Sandhole Oak Barn in May. It’s great when couple’s choose a location for their pre-wedding shoot that actually means something to them. Sarah and Matt suggested Fletcher Moss Park in Didsbury as it was somewhere they’ve always enjoyed spending time together (although it turns out Matt has actually spent a lot of time there with work friends playing frisbee at lunchtimes as well!)

So we started out nice and early on a beautiful spring saturday morning a couple of weeks ago and got some great images. Here’s some of my favourites from the shoot…

Really can’t wait for Sarah and Matt’s big day now.  We had such a laugh on the pre-wedding shoot, (rounded off by an excellent breakfast!) that I know will continue on their wedding day.  They’re such good fun and look amazing together – we’re going to get some fantastic images on the day!
