Wedding photographer: St Mary's Church in Pulford, Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Soughton Hall, Cheshire/Flintshire, UK: Dave & Jen

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at St Mary’s Church in Pulford, Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Soughton Hall, Cheshire/Flintshire, UK for the wedding of Dave & Jen.

A UK wedding for us this week – Dave & Jen were married on Thursday at St Mary’s Church in Pulford and after some drinks & light food at nearby Grosvenor Pulford Hotel, they made their way to the gorgeous Soughton Hall for their wedding meal & evening party. Despite the early rain (which encouraged people to go inside the church a little quicker than is usual), the sun was shining by the time the service was over and we had perfect weather for the rest of the day. Once more, we had our usual problem in the UK of not being allowed to photograph inside the church – something that continues to baffle us when compared to the wonderfully welcoming nature of Italian celebrants. We made up for it though with some beautiful shots from the rest of the day, some of which are below:

Reflections & obviously happy to be inside the wedding car!

Dave, little brother James, the Dads, Bestman & Ushers.

We love Reflections!

Turned out pretty nice for March!

Into the brilliant sun.

I never do shots like this – don’t know what made me do it, but I really like it :)

That’s it for now. A really lovely couple, wonderful families, great weather (in the end) – oh and a special mention for John & his driver partner from Cheshire Wedding Cars. Nothing was too much trouble for them. – Andy

Beautiful Emma

Marco & Sally Ann are the proud parents of beautiful little Emma. At 3 month’s old, she made a wonderful subject for us to photograph & it’s quite daunting doing this kind of thing for such an artistic couple: Marco is the most incredible pianist – the best I have ever seen live (& I know a good musician when I see one!) – whilst Sally Ann is an operatically-trained singer herself.

Here are just a couple of Emma, taken that Sunday morning in their living room; both natural light only.

The first trees are in!

We’ve planted our first couple of trees.  There aren’t any images at the moment – I’ll save those for after the weddings concerned, as we’ll name each tree with the couple’s surname.  Due to the climate and the tree stock that’s available locally, we’re quite restricted with what we can obtain and when we can plant with a reasonable chance of success.  We need to wait for the Autumn for large, woodland-type trees – all that are available at the moment are fruits!  Anything is better than nothing though.
