Destination Wedding Photographers Manchester

We’re well aware that we hark on all too often about how much we love engagement shoots, but it’s true. We are extremely lucky to have such incredible couples and for us, it’s all about making them feel as comfortable as possible on the wedding day. What better way to do that than a day out exploring one of the most incredible places the world has to offer? Having proposed in Rome a destination engagement shoot was always something Rob and Briony wanted to investigate and when they mentioned their idea to us we were thrilled. We’re always cautious not to schedule in too much travel each year, with a maximum of three international weddings and three international engagements per year to make sure we continue to enjoy the travel. Our trip to Rome was certainly the highlight of our year so far and we couldn’t be more grateful to Briony and Rob for suggesting this incredible place!

We often say that destination engagement shoots are kind of like the ultimate day out. There’s hardly any point flying hundreds of miles for a 60 minute shoot so we plan in a whole day full of sightseeing, exploring and getting to know the couples we’re lucky enough to work with. In many ways we see far more during these engagement shoots than we ever would on a normal day out.

It’s safe to say that none of us planned to walk 13 miles around the sights of Rome, but with a couple as down to earth as Briony and Rob it’s easy to lose track of time altogether.

We couldn’t be more excited for Briony and Rob’s wedding in a couple of months time but for now here’s their stunning Rome engagement shoot!

Park Hyatt Dubai Wedding Photography | Destination Wedding Photographers London

Sometimes when we sit down to do a blog post we know exactly what to say, other times it’s a bit more difficult. A couple of months on from Amy and Adam’s 3 day Park Hyatt Dubai Wedding and we’re still struggling to find the words to describe their day. Between the Mehndi ceremony, Adam’s vibrant ceremony entrance, Amy’s 3 incredible dresses to the black tie reception on the final evening we were spoiled for choice when it came to photo opportunities! Quite simply, it was a wedding that really made us appreciate everything that makes a wedding such a unique occasion to have the privilege of being a part of.

Looking back through these photos it’s clear to both of us that as much as the location was a spectacular environment to work in and a fantastic talking point, it wasn’t what really mattered. Of course, we wanted to set the scene and do the beautiful country justice. But when people travel across continents for a wedding to unite family and friends from around the world, even one of the most spectacular cities the planet has to offer is really just the icing on the cake.

One of the things wedding photographers talk about a lot is ‘curation’, and it’s easy to see why with the internet encouraging us all to have shorter and shorter attention spans. As we narrowed down images for this blog post we realised that maybe it’s all gone a bit too far, maybe we’re all leaving out the important stuff. So we looked at the images we had selected, without hours of painstaking whittling down for the sake of a snappy blog post. They are all images that we love and more importantly they are images that we think Amy and Adam will love. That tell the story of the day and the moments they shared with the people who matter most to them.

We still can’t really find the words for this one so we’ll settle for just saying a huge thank you to Amy and Adam for inviting us into their lives for this incredible occasion.

A special thanks to our good friends Adam and Rachel, (The Wedding Filmmakers) who we were lucky enough to work with and share this experience with.

Engagement Photography | Wedding Photographers London

One thing we love about the evolution of our business is how much ‘Engagement Shoots’ have changed for us over the past two years. Yes, they are all about getting to know the couples we work with on an informal basis, but that doesn’t mean they all have to be the same. Nikki and Adrian currently live in Singapore, but hired us for an Adventure Shoot in London earlier this year. After seeing our photos online they wanted their shoot to represent their shared love of the city and re-tell the story of their engagement. We loved having the chance to work a real story into the shoot and, as we explored London and got to know Nikki and Adrian we started to realise that their wedding is going to be a real highlight of 2017. We knew a little about what they had planned, but on hearing the details in full we can’t wait to see how the wedding unfolds next year!

Cheshire Wedding Photography | Wedding Photographers London

I’m not sure why, but there’s a misconception around that pragmatism precludes the ability to have fun, that you have to choose to live life one way or another. This year perhaps more than ever before we’ve seen couple after couple who totally dispel that myth. One of the first things David and Becky said to us on their engagement shoot was that they were both very sensible in life. As sensible as they may both be, it’s certainly not what defines them and their wedding was an incredible glimpse into their infectiously happy lives together that we were honoured to be a part of.

They both grew up in the countryside moving in somewhat different circles with David spending his time playing football while Becky was a Cheshire Dairy Queen. A far cry from where their romance began in London having each headed south for their respective careers in fashion. It’s safe to say that at heart, they both love the countryside, but life has a way of putting us in the right place at the right time and for them that meant the city.

I know it sounds like a cliché, but having recently moved back to the North David and Becky’s wedding really did feel like the start of their lives together. Surrounded by their families and friends they had met along the way they both exuded happiness. There’s no place like home, and no matter how much they love the countryside, home will always be more than just a geographical location for David and Becky.

Ibiza Engagement Shoot | Wedding Photographers London

The idea of a destination wedding can be incredibly appealing, yet the logistics of planning an event as important as a wedding from overseas can often be incredibly complicated. Kat and Anand originally planned an Ibiza wedding but decided in the end that London, with it’s incredible variety of venues was a better choice for them. Having spoken to Kat over the phone when they first got in touch we knew how much Ibiza meant to them both and suggested the idea of a destination engagement shoot.

We love engagement shoots like this, learning about a couple as we explore a new place, hearing their stories and why the location means so much to them. They are the kind of shoots that make us so grateful not only because we get to take photographs for a living, but because of the people we take photographs for. We had only ever heard about the clubs in Ibiza but Kat and Anand showed us a completely different side to the island, I have no idea why anybody talks about the clubs with scenery like this.

    Beautiful shoot! Love the reflection in the window shot and the silhouettes and the beach...haha! So many great shots! How do you get the clarity in the reflection? Shooting into the shadow with Kat & Anand in the light offers the contrast, but it is so clear. Did you use a filter?

Langham Hotel Wedding Photographers London

We often head home from weddings talking about things we wish we had done at our own, that’s one of the problems with this industry, we see so much that it’s almost impossible not to think about what you’d do differently. In all honesty as much as we have seen some incredible things at weddings over the years, ours was perfect for us at the time and so we really wouldn’t change a single thing. Naomi and Mark’s wedding, like all our favourite days, was perfect for them, the Langham hotel providing an incredible venue for this day that was all about family, great friends and a city that means so much to each of them. What we loved most about the day however wasn’t the spectacular backdrops, perfect weather or even the incredible friends and family who helped to make us feel so welcome. It was how much the connection between Naomi and Mark shone through during their moments alone together. In a day that was non stop action, taking a few minutes away from the guests for some photos was time that reminded us of our own wedding day, and just how special a few stolen moments together can be.

Yorkshire Dales Wedding Photography | UK and London Wedding Photographers

This year, perhaps more than ever before, we’ve found ourselves travelling away from Yorkshire for work. With trips to Cheshire and London becoming increasingly common it has made us appreciate Yorkshire weddings all the more. After all Yorkshire is where we met, it’s where we got married ourselves and it’s where we call home. Jess and Mark’s wedding earlier this year had two of the things we love most about Yorkshire in abundance, amazing scenery and fantastic people.

It’s always difficult to know what to include when writing up these posts, especially in a culture where everyone seems to want to draw of a story that pulls on the heartstrings. Perhaps it’s the accumulative effect of years of exploitative reality TV wherein applicants personal lives are shared with the nation for the sake of ratings, but I always feel that some stories aren’t ours to tell. We, as wedding photographers, are in the unique position of being invited into one of the most emotionally charged days of two people’s lives and along the way we learn more about the people we’re photographing than most people do about anyone except their closest friends. I don’t think there’s ever been a wedding that we haven’t laughed with the couple and, at more weddings than I’d like to admit, cried. Through all of that our job is to capture the day for the couples, and we try to remember that when we’re doing these posts.

Jess and Mark are a couple that have gone through more in their lives than many of us ever will, and they have come through it all as two of the strongest most incredible people you could ask to meet. Their day wasn’t defined by what they have been through in the past, but by the love they share for each other and the people they chose to share it with. Through all of the adversity they have one of the most loving and caring groups of family and friends that we’ve ever seen and we feel so proud to have been there to capture it all for them.

– Chris & Verity

Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography | Wedding Photographers London

When you’ve see as many weddings as we have over the years you find yourself analysing what it is that makes couples work so well. We have seen both ends of the spectrum, from couples who have been together for years to couples who have tied the knot after just a few months. Some spent extended time apart in long distance relationships while others have barely spent a day apart since they met. I remember asking my dad about my grandparents when I was little, the way my granddad spent hours in the garage tinkering away only to head in and end up bickering with my nan. He told me they had always been that way, with my granddad working away from home, often for months at a time. In many ways I never really appreciated just how much they meant to each other until my granddad passed away. Suddenly when I thought of them I didn’t think of bickering, or the time they spent apart, I thought of all of the quiet moments together. Their relationship was very different to the one I hoped to one day have, but it was perfect for them. I think that’s what we loved so much about Kelly and Matt’s wedding, from the moment we first spoke to them on Skype last year we felt like we were on the same wavelength. Their idea of a perfect relationship was amazingly similar to our own.

Suffice to say we couldn’t wait to see their day unfold and as spectacular as the Roman Lakes tea rooms looked bathed in golden hour sunlight, and as impressive the Manchester Town Hall was for the ceremony, it was the moments between Kelly and Matt that we love the most. With a connection that bordered on telepathic, the same in jokes and references popping up in each of their vows, they didn’t even need to be in the same room to see their connection. In the morning as they each watched a video the other had prepared it was clear exactly how much the day meant to them.

I should probably talk about the details of the wedding, you know the stuff, the venues, what they do for a living, the weather (we are British). But looking through this selection of images I just can’t see any reason to. This collection is all about two people who are clearly as in love as anyone could ever hope to be. I don’t think there’s anything we COULD say that would add to that.

Villa Farm Wedding Photography York | Destination Wedding Photographers Manchester

Over the years we’ve heard quite a range of stories about how couples met and fell in love. From couples who spent years as friends before realising there was something more there, to couples who fell in love at first sight. Maybe it’s too many Hollywood films but we both genuinely believe that when it happens you just know. For us it was our first conversation in the living room of her shared student accommodation, sitting in a room full of people in our own little world. Within a few weeks we were spending all the time we possibly could together, not a lot has changed in the last 7 years. I think that’s why we got on so well with Emma and Dave when we first met them for their Christmas engagement shoot towards the end of last year. They are a couple who are so clearly relaxed and comfortable in each other’s company. More than that though, they are the kind of couple whose day we feel especially honoured to capture because it is so abundantly clear to everyone who meets them just how perfect they are together.

Their day was in many ways a rather unorthodox one with the ceremony taking place in Emma’s hometown in Lincolnshire and the reception in York where they both now live. We love seeing personality in weddings and it doesn’t get much more personal than a carefully orchestrated plan to include two places of such importance into a wedding day. I think in the lead up to the wedding even Emma and Dave started to question the decision to take a bus full of wedding guests up the motorway to York, the annual Tour De Yorkshire which just happened to fall on the same day just a few miles from their reception venue certainly didn’t help. Yet despite all of the possible ways in which things could have gone wrong karma or blind luck stepped in and we were all able to make it to Villa Farm (The reception venue in York) without the slightest hiccup.

We loved capturing every second and the day was made even more enjoyable to be able to capture it alongside our good friends – and amazinly talented videographers – Adam & Rachel of The Wedding Filmmakers – if you are looking for a beautiful wedding film then Adam & Rachel really are two of the best!

Formby Beach Adventure Shoot| Wedding Photographers Manchester

We always love trips to the seaside, no matter how much we love Yorkshire there’s no avoiding the fact that we’re about as far away from the sea as we possibly could be in the UK, so we were over the moon when Matt and Amy suggested Formby Beach as the location for their engagement shoot. It was one of the first days this year when it really felt like summer and with their wedding falling almost exactly one year later we can only hope that we get the same incredible weather when it comes to the big day! It’s always great to shoot in this kind of awesome location but for us these shoots are all about getting to know our couples and our time with Matt and Amy left us certain that come rain or shine, their wedding will be one to look forward to!

Yorebridge House Wedding Photography | Yorkshire Wedding Photographers Leeds

Some might say that it’s a grand venue, or the expensive decor that makes a wedding but for us, it will always be about the people. Julia and Simon wanted an intimate wedding in a place close to their hearts, the small ceremony took place in the village of Hawes and their reception was held at the beautiful Yorebridge House.

What we loved most about their wedding was the number of special moments Julia, Simon and their family shared throughout the day. Their connection was obvious and it was hard not to get emotional hearing their stories throughout the speeches. From the morning with Julia, getting teary eyed opening her beautiful gift from Simon to the amazing glances they shared during the ceremony we can safely say that Julia & Simon are two of the lucky ones.

Here are a few of our favourite moments from their day.

Kilshane House Wedding Photography | Destination Wedding Photographers

One of the best things about what we do is the places it takes us to, last year we visited Slovenia and Marbella for stunning destination adventure shoots and earlier this year we headed over to Ireland for Isobel and Karl’s wedding. It’s hard not to fall in love with wedding photography once you begin to really appreciate what it is that we are all lucky enough to be a part of as photographers. Our whole career is built around couples inviting us in to one of the most personal and memorable moments of their lives. Isobel and Karl’s wedding was the kind of day that left us with an even greater appreciation for the importance of our work, for them it wasn’t a destination wedding at all. It was a wedding that celebrated their love of Ireland as much as their love for each other.

We arrived at Kilshane House bright and early where Verity headed up to meet Isobel and the bridesmaids, while I walked down to the lake with Karl and the groomsmen. I’m still not sure how nobody ended up in the lake, but with the boat already filled with a few inches of rainwater from the days leading up to the wedding, no amount of boating skill was going to keep them dry. Throughout the day it seemed like the usual wedding day nerves just weren’t playing a part in Isobel and Karl’s day, from start to end it was a celebration of family and friends all together in a place that united everyone. Even the threat of thunderstorms and the occasional shower never came close to dampening the spirits of anyone at the wedding and despite all of the forecasts Karma came through and delivered the most unlikely of weather in an otherwise rainy week.

Isobel and Karl have both worked in London for some time now, building careers for themselves in one of the best places in the world to do so. As we got to know their friends and family it was clear that everyone appreciated how hard they had worked to get to where they both are and how proud they all were of this incredible couple. It’s always amazing how much you can learn about two people when you follow them for a day as poignant as a wedding. On the surface Isobel and Karl seem like highly successful, career driven people, but for them it is abundantly clear that for all of their achievements in London, home for them will always be where their hearts are – in Ireland. We cannot thank them both enough for showing us this amazing part of the world, and why they love it so much.
