Thornton Manor Wedding Photography

 

This is a bucket list kinda thing for me, I absolutely adore Thornton Manor weddings and when Vicky and James asked me along to capture their big day and provide their Thornton Manor Wedding Photography,  I jumped at the chance. A stunning bride her handsome fella, and Thornton Manor, it would be rude not to. I love it here, it has so many beautiful aspects to the grounds that it is crazy good. Trouble is, the weather. Yes, good old UK weather, it didn’t stop raining all day, apart from when it needed to, for about 20 minutes and in that time, all those shots you see here, the ones in the gardens, the confetti shot and a few family formals, were all captured. It has to be among the fastest I have worked ever. It was pretty bleak at times, I am just so happy Vicky and James put their faith and trust in me.

On that note, about the weather, here’s a few words from the gorgeous Vicky herself:

 

I truly believe your wedding photographer is one of the most important choices a bride-to-be can make, as it moulds how you remember your day in the years and decades to come, and my memories are only wonderful. 

” I think it’s pretty normal to have wedding jitters, will our weather hold out…will our guests have a great day…what might go wrong and will it affect how we enjoy the day. One thing I never worried about was Phil, we had seen Phil shoot another wedding for our friends and were blown away with how he had portrayed what we remembered as a drizzly, grey day, into stunning moody shots. From our first interactions and meeting with Phil he was amazing, he was always prompt with emails, and gave us really great advice in the run up to the wedding day, and we felt relaxed with him from the very first moment.

Phil was with us from the very start of the day, he made all my bridesmaids feel so calm and comfortable, and really got the essence of the getting ready part- the first flutters of excitement, finally seeing everyone in their dresses, and seeing the image of the wedding I always wanted, coming into fruition.

I must have tried on hundreds of dresses before I found my dream dress, I had such a clear picture of the style I wanted, and it definitely wasn’t a meringue! My dress was made by designer Riki Dalal, and their London flagship store were able to custom make it for me. I loved the shape of it, the curve and flow. It made me feel beautiful, and it was quite different from dresses I had seen elsewhere. Phil worked with the silhouette of the dress so well, he captured the essence of the dress. When I look back at those photographs I get a little giddy feeling- that was my perfect day, that was my perfect dress, and I got to marry my best friend feeling absolutely amazing!

The wedding day went so fast- what a cliche! But Phil was our own mini co-ordinator, and the time with him allowed us to actually focus on each other. I had an amazing day, but some of the most important memories I have are of my husband and I taking alone time, and Phil captured that beautifully.

We are extremely grateful to Phil, I truly believe your wedding photographer is one of the most important choices a bride-to-be can make, as it moulds how you remember your day in the years and decades to come, and my memories are only wonderful.

I cannot express how grateful I was to read these kind words from one of the world’s most beautiful and kind, human beings. Thank you Vicky, I will always be grateful for the opportunity you gave to me, for the trust and the faith….and my memories are only wonderful…wow, I am going to have to get that printed on a T shirt or something.

Here’s a few images from Vicky and James’s beautiful wedding day, I hope you enjoy looking through these as much as I did capturing them. If you are considering me for Thornton Manor Wedding Photography then please do get in touch and perhaps I can capture you some memories that are also wonderful 🙂

If I've said it once....I have said it a million times......I truly love working at Combermere Abbey

It has it all, from the amazing gardens, to the beautiful hall, and I am so privileged to be one of their recommended photographers too. But regardless of that little bit of kudos, it is a truly amazing venue that needs exploring. Matthew and Rebecca did just that, they used their time wisely and this meant we could go down to the mere in the evening for some incredible images of the grounds. A beautiful and relaxed Combermere Abbey wedding that truly was amazing.

 

If you are looking for your Combermere Abbey Wedding Photographer then please do give me a call and lets go explore those beautiful grounds.

 

Matthew and Rebecca, over to you guys :)

Diary Of An Iscoyd Park Wedding Photographer

Being situated just a few short miles from my home, Iscoyd Park is truly one of my favourite places in which to capture the special day of a wedding. From the lush bedrooms, to the magnificent entrance, it truly has it all. The gardens are just simply divine and truly offer amazing scope for the wonderful bride and groom to capture some stunning images.

This is why Charlotte and Harry chose this very place to have their own special day. I am not going to go on about all the little things that happened in the build up...how they met me, how we created some amazing images. No, I will spare you this, and instead bring you to the reason you came here in the first place....to look at my work, my craft.

I have a love of what I do and I hope you see in these images exactly what Charlotte and Harry saw when they decided to go ahead and book me. Iscoyd Park is a stunning place for sure....backed by a wonderful team of enthusiastic and well mannered people. Your day is safe in their hands...and your memories, as precious as they are, are very safe in mine.

I love working here, and I loved my time with Harry and Charlotte. I only hope you love these images as much as I do.

It's perhaps worth pointing out that muy coverage truly is about telling a story, yes I love to create something rather special too, those hang on the wall works of art, but at the heart of my work is authentic storytelling. Right from the moment the guy on the tractor rumbles past the front door making the drive look as perfect as possible. Such is the attention to detail Iscoyd Park go to.

A Few Words...

As is normal these days I try and get a little bit of feedback from my couples, with that in mind, here are a few words from Charlotte herself.

When chatting to other couples who’ve recently tied the knot, you inevitably hear about all the stuff that went wrong or could have gone better. But when it came to our wedding we honestly couldn’t have had a more perfect day. This was owing to the amazing group of people who made it all happen. This included the team at Iscoyd Park, our photographer Phil and our florist Katharine. Each made the day run effortlessly allowing us to enjoy it to the fullest. Their organised yet organic approach to guiding us and our guests, made sure that we were able to enjoy our special day in a calm and fun way. I think this is really shown in the magnificent photos Phil took and we’ll cherish the day for the rest of our lives. 

Thanks Phil x
