I first met Nick and Charlotte in Didsbury only 4 months ago. We bonded quickly and it became apparent that they were going to have nothing but a laid back and fun wedding. Nick and I share a love for cars, for which we have discussed for many an hour. Now, no bride or groom ever wants it to rain on their wedding day, but for Nick and Charlotte it did, from ten minutes before she arrived at her Adlington Hall wedding, it rained and rained and just never stopped. But this didn’t seam to bother either of them at all. I had a bridal umbrella ready in my car, and was planning shots with the umbrella in my head, however Nick and Charlotte were having none of it, they didn’t care it was raining and just went for it, without the umbrella. Now, my camera gear got very wet and my 50mm lens (1.4) stopped working, but that’s why you hire a professional – what ever it takes to get the perfect shot. It was such a breath of fresh-air to have such a laid back approach and enjoy the day they had to the fullest. In the evening, Charlotte honoured her families tradition and had a Chinese tea ceremony. Whilst still in their Chinese attire, they took to the dance floor and danced to… The Muppet Show – so Nick and Charlotte! Their Adlington Hall wedding was such a pleasure to photograph and I have made two very good friends. Enjoy the photos and please feel free to comment at the bottom.
