Corrina and Tom Wedding - sneak peek.

I’m excited to share few photos from Corrina and Tom’s Wedding. The ceremony was held in Stockport Registry Office. After the ceremony we went to Fletcher Moss Park for a photo session. It was a pure pleasure to work with Corrina & Tom and here are some of my favourite photos. More to come :).


Paula & Richard wedding day

Another wedding with beautiful couple I was thrilled to photograph this summer. It took place in Duke 92 at iconic Castlefield, Manchester. It was day full of emotions followed by energetic party until very late.


Wedding day at Sefton Palm House

This was a truly special day. We worked with a great couple in the relax and pleasant atmosphere of the botanical garden of the Sefton Palm House in Liverpool. This place is a tourist attraction on its own. As a wedding venue, it offers greenery throughout all seasons, plenty of natural light and great internal lighting in the evening. In my opinion, this is a perfect venue for bride and groom, their families and guests to celebrate. Also, the surrounding park, its alleys of trees and lakes provide plenty of opportunities for the photographic sessions.

 


Sneak peek into Laura and Stephen wedding day

I was lucky enough to photograph these two gorgeous humans last weekend during their energetic and full of emotions wedding day. Here is quick sneak peek into some images from that day.


Emma & Carl's wedding sneak peek

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from Emma & Carl's wedding. It was a perfect day, beautiful wedding and happy people.

I had a pleasure to witness and capture those unforgettable moments. I would like to wish Emma & Carl a wonderful life together.

Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day. It was a great fun working with you, your family and friends.

Also a big thanks to Hollin Hall Hotel and its lovely staff for the cooperation on the day.

 


Karolina & Steven Wedding day

It was one of the smallest but also very spontaneous weddings we had chance been part of. Karolina and Seven got married in Town Hall registrars office. Shortly after the ceremony, we had (only) 30 min for wedding session around library and Town Hall area. Beautiful architecture help us to capture some moments between newly married and full of love couple. After a short walk, we all headed off for dinner followed by a party in one of the local pubs.


Wedding fair

Last evening we were at a wedding fair in Britannia Hotel in Manchester. It was first event of this kind hosted and organised by this venue. The event was well attended by couples and other wedding vendors. We had a chance to meet interesting people who share our passion for wedding photography. The hotel has a great potential for weddings. It has majestic staircase and large, bright chandeliers that reflect lots of light creating magic atmosphere. Room was beautifully decorated by Roslyn from Abracadabra as seen on the attached pictures.

Emilia and Benjamin Wedding

I had an amazing time at Emilia and Benjamin's wedding that took place in Castillon-de-Castets, small village near Bordeaux in France. They made me feel as I was member of their family and I am very grateful for this. I will write larger post in near future describing this truly unique wedding. For now let me share little sneak peek with few images from their remarkable day.

We wish them all the best. Congratulations to a great couple.


Bordeaux, France - Destination Wedding

SoundPictures is going to shoot a wedding in France this weekend. We are all packed, camera gear has been checked and we are ready to attend a unique style wedding taking place in a beautiful rural location near the famous wine-producing town of Bordeaux in France. It is a real privilege to be asked to be someone’s wedding photographer and to be responsible for capturing Emilia and Ben’s wonderful moments. They will no doubt make an amazing wife and husband.  

 

 


Photography - Iwona & Arek - 20th Wedding Anniversary couple portrait session

Iwona and Arek are having their 20th wedding anniversary this year, and I encouraged them to do a photography session to celebrate it. They didn't have any professional pictures taken on their wedding day so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to capture their love 20 years later.

It can be a challenge for someone to look relaxed and natural in front of the camera if they aren't a professional model or if they're not used to it. It is often down to the photographer to put the couple at ease and get them to smile and relax. It is usually easier with girls as they know how to look pretty and enjoy posing. With guys, it can be more challenging as they don't want to do overly complicated poses and some might even think that posing is too feminine :). Offering some coaching can help, for example, showing them what to do with their hands and just allowing the couple to interact with one another. Usually they quickly discover that by simply paying attention to a few details, posing can be really simple and eventually (usually after the first setup/location) the ice breaks and we can roll on with the photoshoot.


We had a great time at the portrait session and my models ;) did brilliantly on the day. Iwona and Arek can proudly tell the story that bystanders were thinking that this was their actual engagment session. They were astonished to find out that this is their 20th wedding anniversary. :) Indeed, they don't look like they have 20 years worth of marriage experience.

Engagements, or post-wedding sessions are fun, but there is also something timeless about capturing a couple’s love years down the line. It's easy to get married but staying married is the real challenge. :) Well done guys. I'm proud of you sister.
