A Wirral Wedding In The Sun
Paul & Joanne At Brook Hall Hotel
The weather was perfect for this outdoor wedding at Brook Hall Hotel in Childer Thornton, Wirral. Blue skies, beaming sunshine, stunning venue, the scene was set for a perfect wedding.
Natural & Relaxed
That was the order of the day, Paul & Joanne wanted minimum fuss & asked me to document their wedding day as it happened with some time put aside after the ceremony for a few portrait & group photographs after the ceremony. It was an emotional day at times, with both the bride & groom showing their true feelings for each other throughout.
Buddhist Nun & Football
Each and every wedding is a unique occasion, this wedding was no different. A buddhist nun in full dress played a major part during the ceremony, working along side the celebrant, adding something a little different to Paul & Joanne's special day. As you can see, she was a bundle of fun & really helped make the day even more special especially as she was the groom's sister.
Most, if not all of the congregation were Tranmere Rovers fans, and they were all wearing club pin badges, even the nun! I've never had a conversation about football with a nun before!
During the ceremony there was lighting of candles, orchestrated by the buddhist nun, it was a beautiful moment although I had to adapt my shooting style quickly as it is pretty tricky to capture candle flames in very bright sunshine. Adapting quickly to any given situation is all part of the game, when you're a wedding photographer.
The Perfect Day
It was a real pleasure and a privilege to be a part of Paul & Joanne's celebrations. The guests were just amazing, the venue was amazing & the weather just topped everything off nicely.
