Superlatives are often abounded around the wedding industry when describing couples special days. Indeed it’s hard not to use the usual…amazing….wonderful…beautiful and stunning, when describing Abi and James’s wedding day…but even those seem somewhat lacking when writing about this particular wedding day. Especially as this wedding is a little bit special to me too, as it is yet another nod….another wink….in the direction of myself as an established and highly creative Oswestry Wedding Photographer.
You see, Abi is the step daughter of Emma….who happens to be part of the family that actually own, and run, The Wynnstay Hotel in Oswestry. To be invited along to capture Abi and James’s wedding was truly and honor and to say I was chuffed is a slight understatement. The morning preparations got underway at Emma’s parents home just outside of Oswestry, to say their home is stunning is yet another understatement, it is a labour of love and clearly shows a sense of splendid taste and incredible grandeur. The balcony shot of Abi (above) was taken from one of the homes amazing bedrooms….what a view….right across the Shropshire plains. I must admit to feeling rather envious…who wouldn’t 🙂
After Abi had got herself, and her bridesmaids ready it was time to meet James at the quaint Oswestry Parish Church….this is but a stones throw from the front door of the Wynnstay Hotel and offers couples wishing to get married in Oswestry the perfect match….a gorgeous Church with some of the most incredible light, right opposite the very able Wynnstay Hotel where Seb and his team offer a perfect wedding day reception. Right next door to the Church is Oswestry’s town park….with many options for some seriously gorgeous wedding photo opportunities. We, however…had this stunning home to use….so use it we did 🙂
Shortly after the end of the wedding ceremony Abi, James and I went back to where we started, literally. Right back to THAT amazing and stunning home of the Wynnstay owners. The gardens there afforded us a chance for some lovely moments between this fab couple, and here is but one….one frame…one image, one simple, gorgeous intimate moment.
The rest of the day was spent back at the Wynnstay Hotel and later….when a remarkable sunset came along to mark the end of my time with Abi and James, we ventured across to the nearby park…..just a few steps across the road, through the wrought iron gates and into the beautiful and, quite frankly, stunning sunset that mother nature had created, just, it felt…. for this engaging and damn beautiful….couple.
Thank you Abi and James for entrusting your special day to me…your memories, those of the love…the laughter and your beautiful and amazing family and friends are yours to keep forever and mine to enjoy too.
If you are looking for that creative hard working enthusiastic and mad camera wielding Oswestry Wedding Photographer come artist….give me a shout and who knows….maybe you and I can go make some beautiful images and capture your memories.
