There’s something about photographing a friends wedding that makes it extra special. I first met Hannah and Phil through our local young farmer’s club a few years ago. Hannah and Phil are both local business people- Hannah runs her own Farm Made Tearooms and Phil is a dairy farmer helping to run the family farms in Cheshire.
Hannah got ready at her childhood home in Rainow where they had the fabulous Katie from Adorn beauty to do their makeup and Hannah’s friend Claire who did a brilliant job of the bridal party’s hair.
The church was a two minute drive to Pott Shrigley church where I was greeted by Phil and his best man. Hannah was walked down the aisle by her brother Will, knowing both Will and Hannah, this was quite a lovely moment. Pott Shrigley is a beautiful church in a lovely village location. I have photographed a few weddings here and you’re always made to feel welcome. After the ceremony, Hannah and Phil were given a traditional farmer style guard of honour by Members of Macclesfield young farmers (a club that Hannah has been chairlady for). They were congratulated by the wedding guests before being showered with confetti.
The marquee was set up on a field just behind Hannah’s mum’s house with the most spectacular views overlooking Bollington and beyond- truly amazing view.
The whole day was really relaxed with the guests enjoying the day. The catering was done by Beech Tree catering and the drinks kept on flowing by Local Bar. Two suppliers I have worked with at numerous weddings and events which both offer a top service. After the speeches, it was time for the bride and groom to cut the wedding cake. Hannah had done a wonderful job at making her own five-tier cake! -I know amazing! The day was topped off with a magical sunset over the Cheshire countryside.
After the first dance, it was time for me to get changed, put the cameras down and enjoy the remaining day as an evening guest.
Congratulations Hannah and Phil and thank you for letting me capture your day.
