Wedding Photographer: Spirit Restaurant, Warrington, Cheshire: Anthony & Eloise

Amy was the wedding photographer at Spirit Restaurant, Warrington, Cheshire, UK for Anthony & Eloise’s wedding.

As a teenager, I was a gymnastic coach in my home-town Warrington. I coached Eloise when she was just 6 years old until she was 11 and so it was an absolute honour to photograph her as a Bride. The beautiful church of St Mary’s with its modern and light interior played host for the wedding ceremony and then we went on to newly-furbished Spirit Restaurant in Victoria Park.

Take a peak:

I spent half an hour with Anthony and the boys at Anthony’s parent’s house before they left for the church.

Spirit Restaurant, Warrington. In the past this building had been a convalescent home and I actually spent the first week of my life in a cot under the 3rd window on the left on the ground floor whilst my Mum recovered!

Bride & Groom

Absolutely love this one.

Bride & Groom

Stunning.

Sunshine coming through the trees – love it.

I always wonder if just one cupcake went missing whether anyone would actually notice :-)

Bride & Groom

Ready to eat, drink and have fun!

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!

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
