Very occasionally I get a call from a Jewish family asking if I am available to be their Jewish wedding photographer. Jess’ grandfather called me and after seeing previous work of mine taken at a Jewish wedding he invited me around to speak to the family. Jewish weddings are the most intense weddings I have ever been too – they are none stop! I loved photographing every second of this wedding, so please have a scroll through the photos and see what an incredible day Bobby and Jess had. The stunning flowers are my The Flower Lounge in Didsbury.
The day stated beautifully with the sun out and with the girls getting ready at Haslington Hall in Cheshire. I used the light coming from the window nearest to Jess to create a soft stunning look. Positioning myself in just the perfect angle is the key as I don’t ever stop, pose or move a bride at any wedding. Shortly after this Bobby arrived and headed to get ready in the hall. Once all the boys were ready they headed down to one of my favourite times at a Jewish wedding, and that is the groom’s Tisch. Most of the men at the wedding, along with the Rabbi tightly packed into one room. Lots of fun and laughter as always, as well as drinking! With 20+ men with shots in their hands, the entire room was intoxicating. Fun times!
After the beautiful start to the day, the weather actually turned worse with a heavy downpour. Jess and Bobby where desperate to get married outside, but during her veiling, the sun came back, hotter than before actually, and the chuppah was again moved outside for the ceremony. Glorious sunshine, blue sky, and a field full of excited cows near by made the ceremony a special one. For entertainment later in the day, they had the incredible Sam Fitton who is an award winning wedding magician. As a Jewish wedding photographer, Sam made for great photographs as guests laughed and laughed at the clever stuff he was doing.
After the meal we headed outside for some portraits in the sun – how beautiful! You must see them below. Then it was onto the evening party, a full band entertained everyone into the night. What an incredible Jewish wedding. None stop but so so much fun. I’m very much looking forward to being a photographer at my next Jewish wedding. Thank you to the talented Andrew Billington and Andrew Keher for assisting me on this wedding.
