As is very typical of the north west, the weather decided not to play ball. Fortunately Madeleine and Kristian chose the beautiful and unique Styal Lodge wedding venue to host their very special wedding day and also chose me as their wedding photographer. Situated to the South of Manchester in the village of Styal, the lodge provides a unique relaxed setting for you and your guests to enjoy your wedding day. I arrived early as usual so I could capture all of the detail shots and venue dressing before photographing the bridal prep and guests started arriving. I like to capture these moments as so much work goes into planning the wedding day and you don't always get to see what goes on behind the scenes on your day, so it is a good memory to keep.
Styal Lodge is one of my very favourite places for bridal prep photography. The room is very large and flooded with beautiful natural light. It provides a very relaxed atmosphere for bride and bridemaids to chill out before the ceremony begins. I went about my usual task, hanging around in the background and taking awesome candid natural photos before heading over to the bar area to meet with Kristian and capture the guests arriving. I like to capture the day naturally and tell the story of the wedding day with beautiful natural and relaxed photos (just the few poses which in fairness do make awesome artwork for your home!). So without waffling on for too long about the wedding day, have a browse through the photos below and share the laughs, tears and happiness as the happened.
