Shrigley Hall Hotel
It was a brilliant time photographing Paula and Liam’s wedding at Hilltop Barn early August this year. Paula and her bridesmaids got ready at Shrigley Hall Hotel, Bollington in one of their opulent rooms. The atmosphere was really relaxed as Paula, her bridesmaids and the mums had their hair and make up done, whilst constantly laughing and enjoying themselves.
St. Gregory’s RC Church , Bollington
Arriving at the church in Bollington which is set on the top of a steep road, I was able to get candid photos of all the guests climbing up the steep steps. It wasn’t long after when Liam and the groomsmen arrived in a black cab. I just managed a few quick photos of them before the bridesmaids arrived followed by Paula arriving in her dads black cab looking radiant. As her dad was a cab driver, it would have to be a must to turn up in one of his cabs all decked out with white ribbon!
It was an emotional moment as Paula walked down the aisle on her own, tears could be seen from one of the bridesmaids. The inside of the church was divine which reflected the lovely, intimate ceremony. Once the official part was done, it was outside on the grounds for some group photos they had requested and then it was off to Hilltop Barn.
On arriving at Hilltop Barn, drinks and canapes began to flow as everyone enjoyed the amazing views looking out on to the Cheshire plains. There were also hoola hooping and playing limbo which kept the youngsters occupied…and adults too ! After taking some fun shots of the bridesmaids and ushers against a rustic barn door which made a great back drop, it wasn’t long before everyone headed into the beautifully decorated rustic barn for the reception. The food supplied by outside caterers was amazing. The celebrations continued into the warm summer evening with an outdoor bar BBQ. Also more creative photography was shot in the fields around. Shortly after Paula and Liam were having their first dance to a great band called ‘The Get Back Beats’. What an amazing day it was!
Congratuations Paula and Liam and thank you for having me along to capture your special day.
