From the moment I met Kate and Andy, I knew their wedding was going to be a blast. Photographing at Kate and Andy's wedding was one of the highlights of the season. They picked a wonderful venue to get married in. It was Wychwood Park Golf Club in Weston, Cheshire. As their recommended photographer, this wasn't the first time I had shot a wedding at Wychwood Park Golf Club, it is an extraordinary place to create such brilliant memories with so many locations around the grounds for amazing photographs.
I love my job as a Cheshire wedding photographer, I couldn't ask for better opportunities than shooting stunning couples like Kate and Andy and working at spectacular venues like Wychwood Park Golf Club.
Kate prepared herself early in the morning for her wedding over at the Wychwood Park Hotel. She had her hair and makeup finished and I shot the story as it developed. Andy was at making himself look very dapper, donning his suit and applying the final touches with the guys over at the Golf Club. Their colour theme for the day was pink, and what an amazing choice, everything just worked so well together, a credit to Kate and Andy (although I suspect mainly Kate!) for their creativity.
The reception was decorated beautifully and was the perfect spot for the newlyweds to welcome their guests. The drinks flowed freely as the guest quenched their thirst. I mingled around the wedding party with my second photographer, Neil capturing the guests candidly whilst they enjoyed their drinks.
The more Summer weddings I photograph, the more I enjoy them. Clouds filled the sky on the day, this acted as a large soft box, which makes lovely photographs. Kate and Andy decided to go for a drive around with myself and Neil on the golf buggies provided by Wychwood Park, and what fun we had!
Unfortunately the sunset wasn't as good as we would have liked for the final couple portraits, but we still made the best of what was given to us!
All in all I had a blast at Kate and Andy's wedding and I'm so glad they invited me along.
Congratulations, and here are some of my favourites from their day.
