Wedding photographer: Calcot Manor, nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire, UK: Simon & Anna

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Calcot Manor, nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire, UK for the wedding of Simon & Anna.

Simon & Anna were married at the stunningly beautiful Calcot Manor in Gloucestershire on the 19th December; a crisp-blue, freezing cold and snowy day. The ceremony took place in the barn across from the main manor house where the reception and party took place. A very stylish venue to match a very stylish couple!

We must say a huge thank you to Simon, Anna, their family and friends who didn’t complain at all when we were left with little choice other than to take the family group shots outside – brrr! The temperature hovered around zero as we asked people to stand and smile for us but nobody complained and the results will be worth it!

On with a few teasers. (Bridesmaids: you are spared. I was so close to putting up an image or two of the ‘get into the dress’ ritual!) You had to be there :-)

A very handsome groom.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome folks. Extra-special thanks to Lindsay, the Mother-of-the-Bride, for being so much fun to deal with in the lead-up to the wedding. Simon & Anna: enjoy a relaxing honeymoon, your images will be online and ready to view when you get home. – Amy.

Wedding photographer: Church of Ascension, Warrington & The Midland Hotel, Manchester, UK: Stuart & Jenny

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Church of Ascension, Warrington & The Midland Hotel, Manchester, UK for the wedding of Stuart & Jenny.

It’s not very often that I get to photograph the weddings of people that I know, not least people that I have known well all of my life. The 28th November was an exception though as Stuart and Jenny were married in Woolston, Warrington followed by a wonderful reception at The Midland Hotel in central Manchester. My parents and Jenny’s parents have been friends for life; Jenny’s Dad was Best Man for my Dad 34 years ago and they are Godparents for each others’ children.

A teeny bit more pressure this time to nail it then! We had to be pretty creative with our light sources as the natural light had almost gone as we arrived at The Midland Hotel at about three thirty. The Midland had just been decorated for Christmas and looked absolutely fantastic with two enormous trees in the lobby.

On with a few tasters:

Stuart.

The little Flower Girl behaved impeccably all day and posed for the camera whenever we went near to her – model material!

The sun came out for a short time just as Jenny entered the church.

Stuart and Jenny on the steps of The Midland. We used the foyer area quite a lot during the day; there wasn’t a lot of light, but what there was, was interesting.

This is my Mum & Dad! Mum is Jenny’s Godmother.

We put our cameras away after this shot and enjoyed the party. No energy left for dancing though!

It was an absolute privilege to photograph Stuart and Jenny’s wedding being so close to Jenny’s family. Thanks for the opportunity and for a fabulous day. – Amy
