Wedding! Paul and Rebecca at Davenport Green Hall, Cheshire

June 21st, 2010

Remem­ber last year I post­ed up a few pic­tures from Paul and Rebec­ca­’s engage­ment shoot in Blackpool?
We had a load of fun that evening but it was insane­ly hard work.
Check out the Black­pool shoot here.

Most of the shoot was tak­en up by sit­ting in cafes just get­ting to know each oth­er, so by the end of the night Jess and myself were real­ly eager to see how their wed­ding day turned out!

Paul and Rebec­ca both got ready at the Man­ches­ter Air­port Mar­riott and then moved on to their cer­e­mo­ny and recep­tion at Dav­en­port Green Hall.
Reg­u­lar read­ers of the blog will remem­ber that I’ve shot at Dav­en­port Green Hall before for Ian and Grace’s wed­ding recep­tion.

It’s a great venue to shoot at with it’s beau­ti­ful grounds. The staff are all so accom­mo­dat­ing too, so I was more than com­fort­able being there all day.

Their wed­ding was on anoth­er hot day. Per­fect weath­er for a wed­ding! Guests flew from all over the place so it was an extra spe­cial day for them!
I’m not too sure what was going on that day, but we had three peo­ple walk straight into glass doors and win­dows! The MC actu­al­ly cut his nose, poor guy!
I also was one of the unlucky peo­ple that mashed my face up on a win­dow! Stupid!!

The fam­i­ly and friends from both sides were brim­ming with per­son­al­i­ty so they made my day very easy as there were plen­ty of characters!

So, enjoy these pic­tures and please leave a com­ment at the bot­tom of the page!

You’ll see plen­ty of pic­tures of Paul and Rebec­ca­’s lit­tle girl; Con­nie lat­er. Mean­while, check her tiny shoes out!

Paul looks pret­ty relaxed con­sid­er­ing 1) he’s get­ting mar­ried in a bit and 2) he just had his per­son­alised reg­is­tra­tion plates nicked from his car!

Talk­ing about cars, check this beau­ty out. This limo was pro­vid­ed by Hor­gans Limousines
I can hon­est­ly say that the ser­vice pro­vid­ed by the chauf­feur was the best I’ve ever seen, and no, I’m not being paid to say this! 

Look at those beau­ti­ful eyes! What a charmer he was!

To me, these two pic­ture are what wed­dings are all about…

Here’s our lit­tle Connie!

Rebec­ca looked incred­i­ble! She made a great Bride!

Best ser­vice ever.

As my first cou­ple that I shot here had their cer­e­mo­ny in Wilm­slow, it was nice to see how Dav­en­port Green Hall does things dur­ing the entire day.
Instead of walk­ing straight to into the cer­e­mo­ny, Rebec­ca took a more scenic route which made for some great pic­tures but also helped to set­tle some nerves.
A real­ly great yet sim­ple idea!

Come on Paul, you can do this!

The room was a little…intimate and…cosy.

I love it!

I love this pic­ture, I think it’s the trail of crumbs from a pack­et of crisps that does it for me!

“Right, when you’ve fin­ished that one luv, you can down this one too”

Jes­si­ca cap­tured this beauty!

Pic­tures like this make my “job” extra special!

Con­nie is absolute­ly gorgeous!

I won­der who thought up these table names then?

Time for speech­es. Just a word of advice to wed­ding photographers…
When the Groom and the Best man approach you and ask you to rate their speech­es out of 10, for the love of all that is good, don’t say that one was bet­ter than the other.
Good­ness me, I almost got myself maimed!
I’ll say now that both speech­es deserved a 10/10.

Rebec­ca­’s girls looked great!

And does­n’t Rebec­ca her­self look incred­i­ble? For the pho­tog­ra­phers read­ing, this was shot out­side at 9:45pm with on cam­era flash!

They shared their first dance…

Joined by friends and family.

And soon, things got a lit­tle row­dy. Just how I like it!

I was more than hap­py when the DJ dropped a few Irish songs includ­ing some Pogues! Love it!!

Oh yeh, you did­n’t hear? Tina Turn­er was there.

Thank you Paul, Rebec­ca and Con­nie for let­ting me be with you all day! I had so much fun!

A spe­cial thank-you goes to Mr Jonathan Tap­house for his help with this wed­ding. You made my day even easier!

    A superb range of pic­tures Joseph — I’ll bet they are chuffed to bits with them!

    looks like a pret­ty great day. the get­ting ready shots are espe­cial­ly beautiful.

    That b&w of the girl run­ning is the things dreams are made of. What a beau­ti­ful pho­to and what a love­ly wedding. =)

    fan­tas­tic cov­er­age! There are so many images that I love — the emo­tion­al moment dur­ing the cer­e­mo­ny, the first dance kiss, a reflec­tion shot of the bride (Gor­geous!), the lit­tle boy down­ing a glass of bub­bly while anoth­er is held out to him, the lit­tle girl and trail of crisp crumbs…and the shoe shot with the bride and her lit­tle girl’s shoes.

    What a great col­lec­tion! Beau­ti­ful sto­ry­telling, amaz­ing­ly put togeth­er and plen­ty of emo­tion run­ning through the day. Awesome!

    Some of your abstract work real­ly looks like fine art. What a love­ly lit­tle addi­tion to a gor­geous wed­ding. Your chil­dren and B&W pho­tos are also top notch.

  17. Alicia Kennison June 27th, 2010 at 6:13 am

    There is some great emo­tion cap­tured in here. Nice job.

  18. Claire June 28th, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    Bril­liant, my favourite here is the lit­tle chauf­feur — he looks over­whelmed, to the point of brim­ming over! I’ve seen Hor­gans Lim­ou­sines at wed­ding fairs, the dri­vers are some of the nicest guys I’ve met. Great pic­tures as ever.

  19. Eliza Claire June 28th, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    These are fab, pos­si­bly your best work to date — I love the quirky angles, and cute kid shots.
