Iscoyd Park Wedding

“Have a lovely day…”

Those very words were on a card sent to Chloe on the morning of her wedding…a day of two celebrations, this was also Chloe’s birthday too…and what a wonderful way for any beautiful young lady to spend her birthday…marrying her best friend.

To be very fair though, I think Chloe and Mike had a more than lovely day…they had a fantastic day. The sun shone the rain stayed away, and Iscoyd Park staff pulled out all the stops to insure it was a smooth and wonderful wedding reception.

I was joined, for the first time, by my good friend and fellow professional photographer, Steve Hale. having Steve along to keep me company was just brilliant, and along with the wonderful videographer lady, we made a nice merry little band of three:)

The day started at Chloe’s parental home in nearby (to me) Whittington, before heading into the village for a Church service…the light that came out during the signing of the register was simply “divine” and added a wonderful luminosity to the images I managed to capture there. This gorgeous light then stayed with us….a bit harsh at times…but always “giving”. Especially just as the light started to fade. The colours conjured up by mother nature were just beautiful, and very apt.

After I showed the happy couple their images I received this lovely text message from Chloe

“PHIL!! We cannot begin to thank you enough for what I can only describe as the most perfect summary of our fantastic day. We have been moved to tears by the emotion & imagination in every photo, capturing more than ‘moments’. We may be some time choosing, I want them all!! Thank you again & we will be in touch soon xxx”

It really does make me “jump” a little inside when I get such amazing and honest appraisals of my work. Being an illustrator for over twenty years, art has always been central to my wedding ethos. That along with my “moments” and documentary style, sums up my approach…one which I tend to call…”creative reportage”. So if you are on the look out for a thoroughly creative, artistic and natural photographer for your Iscoyd Park Wedding, please do drop me a line and lets see if we can create some wedding “moments” for you to treasure.

All it leaves me to do now is to thank Chloe and Mike for allowing me to be part of your amazing journey together….here’s to a wonderful future as Husband and Wife.

Wishing you both much love and happiness.

Marcus and Lauren : Albrighton Hall Wedding

An amazing wedding day in October of last year. I spent the day with Lauren getting ready at this amazing venue, Albrighton Hall offers so much scope for images there, I love to meet up beforehand to discuss in greater details how, and what, we are going to photograph on the day. This puts a structure in place and then the “moments” are natural and unforced. This day was typical of my weddings…beautiful, relaxed, and very informal. Allowing natural light to take the images to a gorgeous, almost, ethereal quality. So if you are looking for a natural, creative photographer for your Albrighton Hall wedding, then please do give me a call.

A few words from Lauren herself:

“ From the moment I viewed Phil’s pictures on the website and also Facebook I knew this was the photographer we needed for our wedding. His pictures truly capture the ‘moments’ of your day with an amazing creativity. He was very easy to get on with from day 1 and all of our guests had nothing but good things to say about him. All in all it was a wonderful experience to have Phil be part of our wedding day. I would recommend him to anyone…”

Big thank you’s to Marcus and Lauren for being such amazing people to work with.

Phil

It is not often I am requested to do a pre wedding shoot….in full on wedding attire….so I was really pleased when I was approached to do one for this lovely young couple. It was fabulous to meet David and Gwyn (their real Vietnamese names are pretty unpronounceable for us brits) who are getting married later this year in Vietnam. The shoot was set in and around the streets of Chester, and down by the picturesque riverside.  Whilst walking around the city streets, Gwyn drew many admiring glances, she looked just incredible in her beautiful wedding gown and I am sure she will look even more amazing at her wedidng in a few short weeks time. David also looked the part in his very smart suit….and with the inclusion of the vivid balloons (again David and Gwyn’s idea) the day was perfect….if a little on the cold side!

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with this lovely couple and I wish them a fantastic wedding day later this year…where, apparently, there will be over 600 people in attendance!!

Phewwwww….that’s some catering nightmare.

Rowenna and John : Ruthin Castle : Wedding Day

Ruthin Castle Wedding Photography

A fantastic wedding at one of my favourite wedding destinations….the wonderful Ruthin Castle in North Wales. Just a short drive from my home town of Ellesmere in North Shropshire lies this stunning venue. Steeped in history and with amazing features, Ruthin Castle really is a venue of dreams. A creative photographers dream indeed, so when Rowenna and John came to see me at my studio in Oswestry, I immediately knew what an amazing occasion their wedding would be. Not only because of the venue….but Rowenna and John ares imply two of the most wonderful people you could wish to meet. Like all my clients I seem to attract people that “get me” and my way of working. It is not a traditional approach, more a creative, fun filled…documentary approach. Relaxed and informal as one recent enquiry put it….and that was just their view coming from my images they had seen.

On the wedding day itself it was a bitterly cold May, right after what must have been the longest winter ever, or certainly felt that way, so we managed to duck in and out of the hotel avoiding the worst of the weather, but I managed to persuade Rowenna and John to brave the oncoming storm clouds for some really quite dramatic shots. Ruthin Castle is one of the rare venues where the inside is as amazing as the outside, so if you are looking to book your wedding at this fantastic place, please consider contacting me for your wedding and have a chat about your own creative vision for your wedding day.
