27th August 2017 The Wedding of Chris and Jade

It was a great privilege to be asked to be Chris and Jade’s wedding photographer for their big day on Sunday at the Fairway Hotel (soon to be renamed The Dunes). As I arrived Jade was getting ready with her bridesmaids and Chris was, well not getting ready! That soon changed though, as soon as I’d captured photos of the dress and shoes as well as Jade and the girls, Chris and the guys were in the bar all suited and ready to go. Before you knew it they were Mr & Mrs Jones and all the guests headed out onto the lawn to start the celebrations.

Being a Walney couple Jade asked if we could go to Earnsea Bay for some photos so we hopped into my car and nipped across the bridge for some wedding photos by the beach which I think worked out well.

We then headed back to The Fairway for the speeches, which went down well, the best man’s being particularly memorable for his tribute to Glen Campbell and a rendition of Rhinestone Cowboy bringing a tear to his eye. The day progressed into night and fun on the lawn with sparklers for everyone followed by a live band.

What a fantastic day everyone had and many thanks for letting Lesley and I be part of it, best wishes to you both for your future together.

Here’s a selection of my photos from the day, processed with a vintage look as Jade liked her pre-wedding photo in the same style.

All of the photos will be presented in a more traditional style to Chris and Jade but I’d love to know what people think about these so please leave a comment.
