Photographing weddings is the best job in the world. But what takes the job to a whole new level of amazingness is when bride and groom are personal friends, it’s such a special feeling to be able to capture the day of someone you are close too – such as Laura & Tom
What made this day is more unique for me is that not only is Tom a great friend of mine, but he is also the best wedding videographer I know and somebody I have worked with at lots of weddings – so no pressure there then…! Just have a look at Tom’s website to see what I mean: www.silkweddingvideos.co.uk
Tom and Laura’s day was amazing. I’m not just saying that because they are friends of mine, it literally was amazing.
Tom and Laura got married at St Alban’s Church in Macclesfield and had their reception at the stunning Hilltop Country House in Prestbury. From the emotion of the ceremony (as you’ll see from the photographs) through to the laughter and smiles of the reception, this was a wedding that had it all. Laura looked absolutely stunning and I don’t think I have ever seen Tom as nervous or as happy as he was during the day. It was just an honour to be there.
I would also like to make a special mention to my good friend Adam Johnson, a fantastic Manchester wedding photographer who helped me on the day by second shooting (and took some amazing shots!), the brilliant Leos Quartet (the best string quartet in the North West bar none!) and also the fantastic Howard Wing. Howard sang during the wedding breakfast and created an atmosphere of happiness and laughter like I have never seen before during a wedding breakfast. I knew of Howard before the wedding but I hadn’t been lucky to see him in action, but wow, he is amazing. I really can’t recommend him enough – you will see from the wedding photographs below just how much fun people were having whilst Howard was doing his thing! Here is Howard’s website: www.howardwing.co.uk
To Laura & Tom – thank you SO much again for asking me to be a part of your wedding day. I am so pleased that it was everything you hoped it would be, and I’m sure a lot more besides! It was a privilege to be there and I am so pleased that you are so happy with your photographs. I was a little bit nervous before your day (for ‘a little’ read ‘very very’) so to know you are so happy makes me extremely happy. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together
