Louise and Richard, Rookery Hall, Nantwich. Cheshire Wedding Photographer

First wedding of the season now complete and it's time for a new style of blog posting of the images including lots more than usual!

First up on the day were the men. This wasn't actually supposed to be the case but Louise arrived later than expected (and worried us all a little!) that morning. Here's a portrait of the groom, Richard.

And here's all the men...

When Louise arrived I joined the girls for some photographs as they got ready. I thought Louise's vintage feel bouquet was stunning.

This is AJ, Louise's sister and bridesmaid (Louise and Richard's daughter Eva was also bridesmaid).

Although late, I grabbed this quick moment of Louise coming down the stairs because I knew she really wanted this image.

The ceremony started as a normal civil service but at the end the registrar left and Louise's Dad, who is a minister, did a blessing. Louise and Richard's children were a big part of the day. Connor was best man and had the rings during the ceremony, meanwhile 2 year old Eva couldn't help but make herself part of the proceedings by calling out when she heard her parents voices delivering the vows!

After the ceremony I got the steal the newly weds away for some pictures. Rookery Hall has beautiful grounds and we were so lucky with the weather as the forecast said heavy rain and you'll see from the images it was quite the opposite. I really enjoyed this part of the day because both Louise and Richard seemed to appreciate having a short break, I think you can see that on their faces on this first image!

They're so happy, I love it! The next picture shows just how amazing the weather and views were (although the faces aren't so great, you can't see that, and I really wanted to keep this image in my selection! Next time I do a shot from so far away I'll learn to take a few).

Next up, a bit of post production for fantastic effect...

This next image is the one every photographer I researched at Rookery Hall seems to take so I couldn't help myself! A bit cheesy though right!?

I am very proud of my group shot, just look at the scenery!

Speeches next and Connor gave a fantastic best man speech. I love this shot with his Dad laughing in the background!

Then the other two best men, long time friends of Richard, gave their speech including a version of the game Mr and Mrs.

After the speeches I grabbed Louise and Richard for the twilight shots we had discussed trying to achieve. It was a bit later than it should have been so there wasn't a lot of blue left in the sky but enough to make it worth it. Here's a different image to the one I used in my preview blog.

On to the first dance and this is my favourite image.

My last image shows what you get when you combine one very happy boy and a chocolate fountain!
