Liam and Katy’s wedding at Ridgmont House in Bolton took place back in June, on what had to be one of the hottest days of the year. It was a scorcher!
Being from Bolton myself (shhhh, don’t tell the Yorkshire folk!) it was fantastic to finally be able to photograph a wedding there, and at a very pretty venue, to boot!
When we first met Liam and Katy, it was for their pre-wedding shoot in Rivington. Another beautiful day–the sun obviously always shines for me when I return to my hometown! 😉
When we talked through their plans for the wedding day, Liam and Katy were keen to have a relaxed, fun day with their friends and family, without too much in the way of formal photos to get in the way of that. So we were more than happy to oblige.
Although we’re always happy to capture a few formal group/family photos for you, if you’re able to keep them to a minimum, we’ll have more time to take photos of you and your guests enjoying themselves, in a much more natural way. There’s also plenty of time to sneak away for a relaxed photo session with just the two of you. This is always one of our favourite parts of the day, and gives you a chance to have a little bit of time away from your guests, just the two of you (well, almost!) We’ll still keep this relaxed for you–we don’t like to pose couples too much, to keep things looking natural, however we do gently direct things so that your photos look their very best.
I spent the morning with Katy, who got ready at home with her bridesmaids, whilst Colin covered Liam and the boys (including a trip to the pub on the way to the venue!)
I don’t think that beautiful, beaming smile left Katy’s face for the entire day…and what a stunning bride she was! We had a fantastic time photographing their wedding and it was a pleasure to work with such a lovely couple, with welcoming family and fun-loving friends.
Thanks also to the venue for looking after us, and to Garry Fishwick, the excellent toastmaster who kept everything running like clockwork, and provided help at the drop of a hat.
Scroll down to see just a few of the photos from Liam & Katy’s day. In the meantime, we’re very pleased to say we’ll be returning to Ridgmont House in 2018 for another wedding–here’s to another great day then!
What did Liam & Katy say about us?
“We just wanted to say how amazing the photos are. We love every single one and they truly capture the day exactly how we wanted–we can’t stop looking at them!
A few people have asked for your details already—you both made an amazing impression! Thanks so much again.”
