Summer Weddings At The Moat House
A few weeks ago I was back at the Moat House in Acton Trussell For Holly and Pauls Summer wedding.
The day started with a trip to the Bride’s home for her preparation photographs
I usually start with the details such as the Brides shoes, jewellery, wedding dress and Perfume; these make a nice spread in the wedding album.
Then I tend to follow on with the hair and make up, but this is done towards the end when the final touches are being applied, all this is done in an unobtrusive manner so I wont ask you to pose for anything.
Once I had all the preps done it was time to head over to St Michaels and meet the groom and his entourage to capture them arriving at the church.
Holly arrived a little later and looked amazing, her walk up to the church with her dad and Bridesmaids was another opportunity to grab some natural images.
It’s always nice to mix the more natural shots with a limited number of formal photographs, this helps tell the story of the day rather than having everything rigid and posed. Weddings for me should be fun, show excitement, emotions and moments that can’t be posed or copied.
After the service we headed over to the moat house, Platinum wedding cars provided the transport for the couple, they have immaculate cars and provide a first class service so check them out if you are looking for wedding cars.
During the drinks reception I photographed the groups that the couple had requested, and then took them for a walk around the grounds to get some of timeless images across the lake.
It proved very entraining trying to do this with a swan that has some serious social issue J you can check out his antics in the blog photos.
Holly and Paul had gone for all day coverage so this is usually from the bridal preparations through to the couples dance in the evening, I tend to hang on after this for a few dance floor shots and maybe a nice dusk shot with the tree all lit up, this looks amazing at night and is a must get shot for anyone getting Married at the Moat House.
Anyway thanks for looking please check out a few images from the day.
