My second wedding of 2011 saw me traveling up from Manchester to the hills of Lancashire for Leanne & Paul’s fun-filled wedding at Mitton Hall – and wow, what a day it was!

Leanne & Paul are one of the nicest couples you could ever wish to meet so I was so pleased for them that they had such an amazing wedding day.  The weather literally couldn’t have been any better (the sun didn’t stop shining all day) and the whole wedding day went perfectly.

Leanne had hired a beautiful cottage, only a couple of miles away from Mitton Hall, for herself and close family and friends to get ready in – and it was here that I started the day.  I then went to Mitton Hall for some shots of Paul and his Best Men, before going back to the cottage for some final photographs of Leanne before she herself headed to Mitton Hall.  From that point onwards it was just smiles and laughter all the way – what more could a wedding photographer ask for?:-)

Mitton Hall is a fantastic wedding venue, one of those venues that has the luxury of having beautiful grounds but also lots of photogenic areas inside as well.  I would like to say a special thank you to the staff at Mitton Hall (especially Dave) for always being so considerate and helpful when it comes to the running of the day.  The staff there work tirelessly on the wedding day, and Dave asked me a few times whether there was anything he could do to help me on the day – just fantastic.

To Leanne & Paul – thank you again for asking me to take your wedding photographs, I am so pleased you are both so happy with your images.  It was an absolute pleasure working with you both and I wish you both a very long and very happy marriage together:-)

Here are a selection of my favourite wedding photographs from your day:

    Adam - Flippin’ eck Neil! Yet again you raise the bar. An incredible set of photos. My favourites are probably the one during the ceremony where they’re giving each other ‘the look’ and the portraits with the ivy… but I love them all. Good job!!

Last month I had the pleasure of photographing Kathy & Dave’s beautiful wedding at the Midland Hotel in Manchester – my first wedding at The Midland Hotel and my first wedding of 2011:-)

Kathy & Dave are such a nice couple and it was an honour to be a part of their day.  Their wedding was extremely relaxed – illustrated by the fact they had their own pick and mix stand – how cool!  We didn’t have great weather (although as a Manchester wedding photographer I am used to that…!) so all the photographs were taken inside – but it didn’t affect the day in anyway whatsoever.

The Midland Hotel itself, located right in the heart of Manchester city centre, is a fantastic wedding venue – very grand and spacious inside with lots of different corridors and rooms where we could take photographs.

To Kathy & Dave – thank you very much again for asking me to photograph your wedding for you.  I really enjoyed working with you both and I very pleased you are both so happy with your wedding photographs.  I wish you both a very long and happy marriage – which I know it will be!!
