A Tarporley Wedding – Alice & Alex

beautiful moment in black and white

I was delighted to be invited to photograph Alex and Alice’s special wedding celebrations in Tarporley, Cheshire. A beautiful summer’s day set in Alice’s parent’s back garden. They had a marquee set-up, outside caterers brought in for a party to remember. The legendary Heather Small from M People performed a private session for the lucky bride and groom and their wedding guests. Certainly a Tarporley wedding to remember and a total joy to photograph.

Tarporley Wedding at Home

The day first started at home, in the conservatory just outside from Tarporley. Here Alice and girls, many of which had traveled up from the south, had their hair and make-up done. Because the wedding was at home, lots of jobs had to be completed such as the table plans and putting up balloons. Everyone helped out to get the job done. After Alice got in her wedding dress they left for the church in the village to marry her new husband Alex. I love it when any walking is involved as it provide opportunities for beautiful natural photos. They walked from the car to the door and had a lovely ceremony hosted by the local vicar. It was then afterwards the celebrations started with some family group photos and confetti as they left. The village of Tarporley made for a wonderful back-drop.

Back then to the house for canapes and drinks. A delicious meal and some cracking speeches. It was the evening that would have a moment to remember. Heather Small had been asked to come and performed- I believe Alice’s dad is a big fan. She was sneaked in the back and revealed to all the guests and it went down a storm. Heather has so many incredible songs that you still hear day-to-day on the radio. The crowned moved so far forward and were talking photos themselves it provided quite a challenge to show the story of this moment. I think I somewhat succeeded.

To Alice and Alex, massive congratulations and it was wonderful being part of your day. A wedding in Tarporley to remember.
