All in all a good afternoon spent with some really good client's.

Congratulations to John & Vikki https://www.dalesphotographyservice.com/blog/2017/10/congratulations-to-john-vikki

Vikki contacted me through Bidvine were I had an advert for Wedding Photography covering the North West. I have to be honest and say for a change the weather men got it right, stormy weather predicted and it arrived around lunchtime, but we didn't let the weather dampen the day. My first visit to The Richmond Hotel and Emma and her team where very accommodating if we needed anything, they usually cater for Weddings on the lower floor, but Vikki had asked for the service to be undertaken on the lower floor with the Wedding Breakfast and Evening reception conducted in the main ground floor reception room. I covered the full day for John & Vikki, covering the make-up and hair right up and till after the first dance.

Congratulations To Dave & Celia https://www.dalesphotographyservice.com/blog/2017/8/congratulations-dave-celia

I had the good fortune to meet Dave & Celia at Mark & Kerry's Wedding in December, they asked me if they could have a brief discussion with me before I left that evening to quickly discuss their Wedding in August as they had been watching the way I worked throughout the day and how friendly and accommodating I was, so a brief discussion was had and an arrangement made to go and see them a few weeks after to discuss in more detail their requirements, it gave me an opportunity to show them some of the images taken at Mark & Kerry's Wedding and also more of my previous client's wedding's and slideshow's.

Well the outcome was I was hired to cover their special day and boy what a day it was, the service was conducted at Birkenhead Registry Office with Family and Friends all gathered to witness the occasion, Celia looked stunning and Dave scrubbed up well too....I did mention to both of them before the service....don't fluff your lines lol, as you will be videod during the service and it will form part of the final slideshow presentation...no extra nerves then!!!! they said.

The service over and it was confetti time and group photographs outside the Registry office in the beautiful sunshine before heading off to the Wedding Breakfast Venue Tanskey's Bistro in West Kirby, the venue situated on the South Parade overlooking the marine lake and the Welsh coastline in the distance to one side and the Coronation Gardens on the other was the perfect setting, the Gardens in full bloom proved a lovely backdrop for some of the Romantic shots and Dave and Celia took it all in there stride, it was also lovely to capture on video the emotion in the speeches especially from Dave's mum.

I took my time mingling and photographing all the family and friends in the late evening sunshine after the Wedding Breakfast service and started to prepare for the evening reception.

The guests started arriving for the evening festivities so more group and single photographs were taken and the party started to flow, we managed to get a few photographs overlooking the marine lake as the sun started to set and the clouds rolled in.

Back inside Dave and Celia took to the floor for their First Dance and with family and friends all gathered round taking pictures and little snippets of video, they looked in a world of their own totally engrossed in the emotions of the day and each other, for me it was the perfect end to their perfect day.

Congratulations To Alex & Diana https://www.dalesphotographyservice.com/blog/2017/6/congratulations-to-alex-diana

Alex contacted me through the yellow pages and then sent an email request to see if I was busy on the 10th June, luckily only just having returned home from holiday, i managed to secure a meeting with Alex & Diana to discuss there requirements and let them review some of my previous work, then a few days later they made the decision to book my services.

Alex explained that he had met Diana while working in China as an English teacher and there romance blossomed from there. The service was conducted at Christ Church in Padgate, Warrington followed by the wedding breakfast and evening reception being held at the Spirit Restaurant.

Congratulations to Mathew & Francesca https://www.dalesphotographyservice.com/blog/2017/6/congratulations-to-mathew-francesca

Another full day's coverage for Mathew & Francesca's wedding, I started off just covering Matt and the groom's party getting ready as Francesca wasn't to sure about having pictures taken of her getting ready. So the Groom's party all gathered at Warrington Registry Office ready for the service to begin at 12 noon and we awaited the arrival of the Bridal Party, Francesca's fear of the camera soon disappeared once we got into the routine of group photo's etc and I must say that during the rest of the day Francesca showed no signs of shyness infront of the camera at all. The wedding breakfast was held at the Villaggio Hotel & Restaurant followed by the Evening Reception at the Birchwood Golf Club.

Congratulations to Matthew & Anne https://www.dalesphotographyservice.com/blog/2017/5/congratulations-to-matthew-anne

Well the weather men got it wrong again lol, showers predicted but as the day wore on the clouds rolled back to allow us quality time to get some outdoor shoots with Matt & Anne, my first visit to the Abbotts Well hotel and the staff where very accommodating if we needed anything, they have some lovely well kept gardens at the hotel which provided more than enough photo opportunities. I covered the full day for Matt & Anne, covering the make-up and hair right up and till after the first dance.

Pre-Wedding Shoot with Matt & Anne https://www.dalesphotographyservice.com/blog/2017/4/pre-wedding-shoot-with-matt-anne

Matt & Anne decided to take me up on my offer of a pre-wedding shoot so we could get to know each other before the big day, it was also a chance to meet up with there Son Conner.

We all met up at Lymm Dam early on the Sunday morning to get a bit of quiet time before to many general public turned up, we soon got Conner involved carrying some equipment and an umbrella (just incase it chucked it down..lol), he was made up and it gave me a bit of time to capture some moments with Matt & Anne before there big day.
