I met with Shauna and Dave in 2016 for a free consultation to discuss their upcoming Ashfield House Wedding. After a long chat and after seeing more of my portfolio, they hired me to be their photographer.
The package they chose included a very rare pre engagement shoot (rare for me as I shoot around 40 weddings a year right now so its usually quite difficult to squeeze the engagement shoots in! If you are reading this though
as a potential client and you would really like an engagement shoot in your package, Wednesday are always good for me so please ask!)
After a little discussion we decided that we would do the engagement shoot at the beautiful Formby Beach. We couldnt have asked for nicer weather with blue skies throughout the shoot. This was an ideal time for Shauna and Dave to get comfortable in front of the camera
and also to discuss the final details for their upcoming special day. The weeks literally flew passed and the wedding day arrived. I arrived early on the day (you can never be sure with the Wigan traffic!) and started the bridal prep photos at 9am. The bridal suite at Ashfield House was
very light and large allowing me to move around and capture lots of beautiful natural light photos. I captured the usual dress, shoes, flowers etc shots along with the hair and makeup photos and then headed across the hallway to photograph some shots that Shauna had requested. The wedding was
a superhero themed wedding as you will see from the superhero socks and cufflinks!
Once this was all done I had some time to photograph the ceremony room as well as chat with the registrars and capture photos of the guests arriving. Once the bride and bridesmaids were all dressed I headed back up to the Ashfield House wedding suite to capture some final getting ready photos, before
Shauna headed downstairs arm in arm with her Father. Well you will be pleased to know I have finished waffling (for now!) please feel free to browse through the photographs below and if you are planning an Ashfield House Hotel Wedding or a Wigan wedding, please get in touch to check
