Laura and Ryan's wedding

Laura and Ryan’s wedding was my first of the 2016 season, and took place on Valentine’s Day at Rowton Hall Hotel near Chester. It was a beautifully crisp and sunny day (my favourite kind of day) which began, unusually for me, with a visit to find the boys to take some getting ready shots. There were some lovely moments as the couple had arranged really thoughtful gifts for each other, which I had the pleasure of observing. We also got a quick shot of Ryan on his scooter.

The getting ready shots with the girls were just as fun and a great indicator for how the rest of the day was going to be.

The couple had mentioned to me their preference of black and white photography, so I decided to process their wedding that way. With that winter sun casting dramatic shadows throughout the day, I feel this decision really paid off.
