There was so much to love about the wedding day of Susan and Jonathan. I rarely do weddings outside of London and the South East nowadays, so it was a pleasure to travel up to my parents hometown of Bury to photograph a wedding. Susan got prepared for her big day at their house, and the laid back atmosphere really helped me capture some lovely little moments here and there.
The wedding itself was at All Saints Stand church in Whitefield. Wow, what a church! I believe this was designed by the architect Sir Charles Barry, and it was actually his first commission. Barry would later in his life go on to rebuild the Houses of Parliament including Big Ben after the fires in 1834, so this church has a real claim to fame! Both internally and externally this church was amazing, so it gave me lots of options for before, during and after the ceremony. I would also like to point out that I captured some of my favourite photos of the year after the ceremony when the guests were congratulating the Bride & Groom, scroll down to have a look. Hugs are what weddings are all about!
After the ceremony everyone went off to the reception at The Stables in Bury. The outside space that Susan and Jonathan had set up with games, music and cake for both children and adults to enjoy alike, was simply fantastic and was a documentary photographers dream. The giant Jenga alone had my transfixed, as capturing that point when its just falling along with everyones reaction is fantastic!
Anyway, enough of my waffling on, here are the photos to enjoy. Congratulations Susan and Jonathan!
