Wedding photographer: Statham Lodge, Warrington, Cheshire, UK: Nick & Cate

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Statham Lodge, Warrington, Cheshire, UK for the wedding of Nick & Cate.

After a couple more days away from home photographing another wedding, we’re back and trying to catch up once more.

Nick & Cate are a great fun couple, always laughing & joking and easy to photograph. They’d chosen Statham Lodge as their wedding venue & it’s somewhere well-known to us. Fortunately, it’s one of those venues that also has a few options for wet weather as far as we’re concerned (although I know other photographers who disagree) although I got drenched shooting the family formals in particularly heavy rain :) Here’s a selection of images from their day.

Nick with Mum & Dad (Sue & Pete)

The Bridesmaids – Amy suggested a shot before they put their shoes on.

A lovely image of Cate. She was dressed nice and early giving Amy plenty of time to create some gorgeous images. It’s something we try to encourage since it not only gives us an opportunity to work some magic, but also it gives the bride some insurance time to fix anything that’s not absolutely perfect.

A laughing moment during the ceremony.

The boys!

An image making use of some window light & yes, that is a pink wedding dress – stunning!

Every face says something different – but Pete’s is a picture :)

Early evening, after the rain!

Nick’s brother Chris & his wife Amy were married 2 years ago and we also photographed their wedding. How their lives have changed with the birth recently of their daughter Evy – peacefully sleeping here.

That’s it for now – check back soon for images from Paddy & Annabel’s wedding in Orvieto! – Andy

Wedding Photographer: St. John’s, Walton & Statham Lodge, Cheshire, UK: Mike & Kerry

Andy & Amy were the wedding photographers at Statham Lodge, Cheshire, UK for the wedding of Mike & Kerry.

It’s been a little while since we updated our blog – we’ve had some travelling to do! On Saturday we were in Cheshire for Mike & Kerry’s wedding at St John’s in Walton followed by the reception at Statham Lodge. As Mike & Kerry were getting ready within just a couple of miles of each other, Amy & I split up – Amy went to Kerry’s parents’ house to photograph the bridal preparations & I went to Statham Lodge to meet up with Mike & his best men – Alex & Kostas. Everyone was surprisingly relaxed – the vicar was wonderful & they had a superb band in the evening. We’ve got some really great images as a result. Here are a few straight out of camera:

Kerry’s sister Sarah did her makeup beautifully.

I like the shirt & tie combination.

The groom (middle) & best men.

Kerry with her Dad. Mum in the doorway.

Little Evis didn’t want his photograph taken – until he saw the back of the camera! This was a pose he wanted himself: “my angry face” which was closely followed by the “tiger face” :)

Outside the church surrounded by friends & family.

The evening fun got underway with the first dance, followed shortly afterwards by the ‘money dance’. What a great tradition!

There are loads more where these came from. Thanks for having us folks – it was great (although I think I ate too much chocolate!) Thanks also to Kelly & the staff at Statham Lodge for looking after us. – Andy
