Hayley and Martin celebrated their wedding recently and I was their chosen photographer after meeting them at a wedding fayre. I was so happy to be part of such an awesome celebration. A amazing venue for a wedding, Rookery Hall located just outside Nantwich in Cheshire definitely gave a special vibe to the event. Such a charming place, it's refreshing to come back to Rookery Hall, it is such a stunning place to create such breathtaking memories. I am very blessed to work in such delightful locations as a wedding photographer.
I started shooting at Rookery Hall where Hayley and her bridesmaids were getting ready for the day. Bridal Prep gives me an opportunity to get to know the bridal party a bit more and gives lots of opportunity for storytelling as Hayley was having her hair and makeup finished. I was keen to photograph Martin's story too as it began to unfold here, and so I sent my second photographer, Rob down to meet him and the guys.
The ceremony was stunning, the photographs I took of it definitely have a "love is in the air" vibe to them.
After the ceremony we took some portraits of Hayley and Martin in and around the amazing grounds, they where definitely enjoying this moment among their beloved ones. It was a lovely atmosphere and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
The season can really have an impact on a wedding and I find Summer weddings are some of my favourite. There was a lot of clouds in the sky about on the day, this acted as a large soft box, which really help with photographs. I think we just about managed to dodge some of the rain clouds!
It was a long time in the planning but Hayley and Martin pulled off an amazing wedding and I'm sure they will be really happy together.
Here are some of my favourite photographs from their day;
