The Alderley Bar and Grill
The Alderley Bar and Grill was a lovely contemporary venu for Emma and Phil’s wedding. With its bright modern setting, situated in leafy Alderley Edge, the ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for a small wedding.
Bridal Preparations at Le vogue Salon Hale
I spent a lovely morning with Emma which began with her hair and make up being done at Le Vogue Salon in Hale. Whilst the hair artists worked their magic, there were lots of great photo opportunities as expressions and interactions were caught through reflections of the salon’s mirrors. The staff were really friendly and even made me a cuppa. Emma seemed very relaxed and once the veil was being put in place, Emma looked radiant as her smile constantly lit up her face.
Back to the House, Hale, Cheshire
I followed Emma back to the house where she changed into her stunning bridal dress. Bridesmaids, pageboys and family were buzzing around excitedly helping Emma in the final preparations as they looked forward to the day ahead.
Service at Altrincham Town Hall
Arriving early at Altrincham Town Hall gave me the chance to capture the guests arriving together with the groomsmen who looked very dapper. Due to the torrential rain photos outside were limited however once Emma arrived, I was ready for her with my stylish wedding brolly which worked a treat as I captured her and her brother in law walking up the Town hall steps keeping dry. Once by the entrance, the bridesmaids were on hand to help Emma with her veil just before meeting her groom. Seeing that she looked amazing, the bridesmaids set off down the aisle, shortly to be followed by Emma full of smiles. Emma and Phil had been together for a number of years and it was evidently the way they looked at each other that their love had never faded.
Denzell Gardens Bowden
Due to the rain, the groups were photographed inside the Town Hall which worked really well as professional lighting was used and the windows made a beautiful back drop to the photos. As well as photos at the Hall, we soon dashed off to Denzell gardens in Bowdon for some creative photographs just before the light faded. we were just in time as the light was still on the ornate arch at the top of the gardens. We also used the McLaren car for a more dynamic photo.
The Alderley Bar and Grill
On arriving at the Alderley Bar and Grill in Cheshire, Emma and Phil’s guests were all upstairs with drinks flowing, enjoying the canopes the ambiance. The room was beautifully decorated for them and before long they were ready to mingle with their guests and enjoy their meal.
A huge Congratuations Emma and Phil, thank you for choosing me to photograph your special day.
