I first met Jenny and Paul when they arrived in the Lakes for their Pre-Wedding shoot, we had spoken extensively on the phone prior to this meeting and established that we were all going to get on well and have alot of fun. Jenny is a keen amateur photographer and my style of Wedding Photography had appealed to her, she is also a fan of Canon equipment and Paul is a fellow fan of Apple and Macs !
My day started early leaving Kendal to find my hotel for the Saturday night, I would normally stay the night before the Wedding but the Bride and Groom insisted that I stay the Wedding night so I could join in the party on the Saturday night – who am I to argue and it was nice to have a couple of cheeky beers late on in the evening reception.
I had a couple of small issues finding the Brides house due to an incompetent taxi driver, you see I had thought it would be better to leave my vehicle at the hotel I was staying and then taxi to the Brides house, transport for the rest of the day was sorted, wow, how can a taxi driver not know his way around his working area, it would have helped if had spoken English really – Mohammed, if you are reading, buy a Sat Nav !
A hive of activity at the Brides house and I set about covering the bridal preparations, all was dead relaxed and it was soon time to depart to the church with the Bridesmaids, it was great to see Paul again and all the Groomsmen looked fantastic in their black suits – really cool guys !
Sadly the weather turned and it rained really hard so no photos outside the church and straight to the reception at The Fat Loaf, some great speechs and the room looked great – it was also lovely to learn that the very tasty Lamb was sourced from Cumbria, ahh, a taste of home !
We spotted a gap in the weather and for about ten minutes the sun came out and the rain stopped so we grasped the opportunity to get out into a local park for some portraits of the Bride and Groom.
Next stop was the Didsbury House Hotel and I was blown away, stunning boutique hotel, I like places that just know what they are and the interior design touches at this hotel were spot on, very tasteful, very contempory – it just works !
