Quarry Bank Mill Wedding Photography
Well, what can I say, it was a pleasure to take Rachel and Chris’ Quarry Bank Mill Wedding Photography. Our couple exchanged their vows at Dean Row Chapel, a quaint little chapel with a huge heart felt atmosphere inside. Only there was a beautiful twist…read on to find out more.
Rachel and Chris
Our excited bride, happily took everything in her stride and was looking extremely calm at her parents house in the morning. The beautiful blue theme ran through the whole wedding and completed the overall day. Blue satin Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes combined with her long tea-length wedding dress by Justin Alexander completed the look. Finally with Rachel’s hair and make-up, completed by Rachael Dutton, our bride was ready and picture-perfect.
Our groom, Chris, was eagerly waiting in church with grins and laughter galore. Chris has to be the most giddy groom I have had the pleasure of working with and as a result you can see some fabulous shots. Chris, best man Michael, and his ushers, wore slick blue suits from Freedman’s of Stockport with a buttercup coloured tie. Rachel’s bouquet of blue and yellow from Barkers was remarkably noticeable, especially with her sunflowers against her dress. The sun shone and the bridal party was ready to depart to the church on time.
Vows with a Twist
At the chapel the guests, the groom and his men and of course two beautiful flower girls, Freya and Isobel were all waiting for the brides entrance. Everyone was in place. Chris had been waiting so excitedly and when Rachel floated down the aisle so graciously, she was greeted by his huge smile. Then came the most beautiful moment I have ever had the pleasure of photographing…Blue. Their gorgeous blue greyhound trotted down the aisle with the rings attached to him. Blue was our happy couples’ dog and now ring bearer, which as a result, had the guests melting into adoration and tears of happiness.
This moment completely made their ceremony, it is worth mentioning most is how incredibly behaved Blue was. Only now did the guests understand actually how important their wedding colour theme really was.
Confetti and cakes
Walking through their blue & white confetti made for a stunning moment and our couple made their way to their reception. Quarry Bank Mill is a National Trust owned, working cotton mill. Its an old yet incredibly stylish venue, built by Samuel Greg at the start of the industrial revolution. With beautiful picturesque surroundings and pretty backdrops of nature, Chris and Rachel felt very much at ease. This gave me the opportunity to capture a few moments before their reception and spend some quality time with Rachel and Chris , ensuring their pictures were truly special.
Our happy couple had food which looked and smelt divine, followed by some great tasting cake made by Candy’s Cupcakes. Speeches included several funny moments and at one point had some of the children in laughter.
The evening party saw guests on the floor, partnering up and dancing to Funcnation. Finally our happy couple were wed in true style, with Blue as their ring bearer and, in conclusion, it has to be one of my favourite wedding to date.
I love to keep shots as natural as possible as it shows the day for what it truly is, real and emotional moments. I hope you can see this from the pictures below.
