Oak Tree Of Peover Wedding
All good wedding days start with the Father of the Bride forgetting his pants!! An hour round trip later, he was ready, as was the bride. Amy is definitely one of our funniest brides, there are no thrills with her, she just says it how it is and we love her for it! We met her and her husband-to-be Andy 18 months before, and have got to know them really well. Thats one of our favourite things about the job, watching couples plan their wedding and seeing them embark on their next chapter together.
The ceremony was really natural, the couple were full of smiles throughout. The room was decorated beautifully, and the guests had such a great day!
The Oak Tree has some superb grounds, and we took full advantage of them when we shot the couple on their own. With couples protraits we dont like to take couples away from their guests for too long, so we do a couple of short portrait sessions from 5-15 minutes in between the formalities of the day. It was nice for the newlyweds to get some time to themselves as the day does pass so quickly.
I love how these two were game for anything, that Amy trekked in her wedding heels trusting it would be worth it, and I love the “stranger things” vibe they gave me. It was fun to experiment with the time we had, an as the day so so informal and relaxed, we had fun!
The suppliers for this day were a dream to work with – we’ve seen wedding singers before, but Michael Brooks was on another level. Superb job sir! After the cake cutting, first dance and a little bit of a boogie, me and second shooter Wayne had a whisky and raided the sweet cart and headed home.
Mr and Mrs Hulse, its been an absolute pleasure getting to know you both, thank you for trusting us with your memories and for being so awesome! You guys rock!
