A fabulous couple. Sparkly shoes. Plenty of sunshine and the amazing grounds of Mottram Hall. A wedding day with plenty of fun.
This past weekend I travelled to Mottram Hall to join Ian & Nicola and watch them say I do. Me and a whole bunch of their family and friends, cheering them on and helping them enjoy becoming Mr and Mrs Firth!
I started the day with the girls, prepping for the day. Hair being done, champers being popped, makeup being applied and all the other good stuff that goes on when you get a group of best friends together. I always know that I’m dealing with like minded girls when I turn up and these are the days shoes. Nicola, Nicola, Nicola. Simply stunning. I love this moment for a lot of reasons. But mainly because Nicola and her Dad NEVER cry. But just here, that changed. Even if just for a moment. After having some fun with the girls it was nearly time for the ceremony, so I headed on down to meet our man of the day…. …. who I found with the best man, armed with a hip flask each sipping bourbon. After these two lovelies became Mr & Mrs they sipped on champagne and joined their guests in the gardens for some afternoon sunshine. Before dinner I took Ian and Nicola for a little stroll around the gardens. They were so relaxed and happy. Definitely happy. Normally lines ups can be over fast and positioned quite dimly lit. But theres was beautiful and light. It came me plenty of opportunity to get candids and I was loving all the laughing taking place down the line. ….still sipping the Bourbon… After dinner we went for another round of evening portraits. That’s the best thing about staying until the evening. It gives us plenty of chance for more pictures when the light is a bit softer. Nicola had surprised Ian with a pork pie wedding cake which was brilliant. And this is how I left them. Dancing the night away. Doing rounds in the photo-booth. Laughing and having a blast!
Ian and Nicola, thank you so much for such a great day – and for allowing me to join you in kicking the photo-booth frolics off! ;-) x
Have an amazing time in Mexico!
