As per normal the gallery is online here, and the password is…. you don’t know? Ask the lovely bride and groom!
Before I start, I need to preface what follows by saying that I genuinely like all the brides and grooms I work with. I think all my previous clients know this, and my wife certainly knows that occasionally I don’t take bookings even when I’m available if I feel we won’t be a good match…
However, sometimes as a wedding photographer, everything really does just “click”, and it was like that for me with the wedding of Sylvia & Darius. I’d known it should be a good day because we’d met up for a pre wedding shoot at Rivingon a few weeks before and I was really pleased with my photos, and I think it’s safe to say they loved them. So I was hopeful that the wedding day would go pretty well too.
I should also add that out of all the venues I’ve worked, I do absolutely LOVE Arley Hall & Gardens. It is to die for. The grounds are amazingly stunning, and house is beautiful, staff helpful…just a great, great wedding venue. As as a photographer I really do visit lots and lots of venues. Arley probably have no knowledge of me or my work, which is ok, I love them anyway!
A week or two before the wedding Darius had spooked me by analysing why they liked my photography so much – and as I told him, I don’t really think about it too much, I just see something I like in my head and then get the photograph But, Darius if you’d like to head to Tatton this weekend for the Wedding Show I’d love you to talk to people about my stuff because you’d do a great job!
For a late October wedding we really had a perfect day. The weather was ideal, and as the wedding was on a Monday, Arley was closed to visitors and we had the autumnal grounds all to ourselves. I could go on and on but I won’t. Hopefully the larger than normal selection of photos above will have done the talking!
Sylvia and Darius, I love you. Seriously. If I could take you to every wedding to pose for me I would. All day you both had smiles on your faces – you were a joy to work with, and your familes were amazing too – thank you for picking me as your photographer!
