What a fabulous venue Combermere Abbey truly is. A real gem set on the Shropshire/Cheshire borders with it’s own mere and stunning gardens. This was to be the chosen setting for Julia and Rory to make their wedding vows. It was a bitterly cold day, as you would expect in the back end of November, but at least it didn’t rain, which, given the weather we have had recently is saying something 🙂 Julia and Rory are one of my couples that I never actually met before their wedding day. This flies on the face of all the reports that couples need a pre wedding shoot and is one of the reasons I started to remove my complementary pre wedding shoots some time ago. If you are going to “click” with your couples, you will just “click” and a pre wedding shoot isn’t really necessary. Sure they are fun and you can get some amazing images by doing one…but in  my experience they really aren’t required. Having said that, I still do offer them and will gladly include a “pre wedding experience shoot” for any of my couples who feel they will benefit from one. Back to the wedding. Relaxed is my middle name….chilled my first and core blimey what a cracking image my last….just kidding. But seriously I do have a total blast with my couples…and I loved every last minute of my time with this fab couple and their amazing group of family and friends…I really don’t think Julia’s Dad stopped smiling the whole day (check out the speech shots)….Rory was a total gent on the day, he was frozen…seriously cold in his kilt….and suffering somewhat on the day too. So the fact he dug deep and carried on for his stunning Wife is testament to his Rugby playing spirit. You see….and I’m sure he won’t mind my mentioning this, Rory comes from a Rugby playing background, having reached the heights, along with his brother, of the national Scotland squad. Hence the time of year for their wedding….there was a little competition on last year, that involved that wonderful egg shaped ball 😉

Right enough of my ramblings, I will leave you to enjoy what was a stunning wedding day, full on laughter and with two of the most loveliest people getting married that day 🙂
