Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photography / Louise Jacob Photography / Mandy & Paul, 10th March 2019

Mandy & Paul’s gorgeous Abbeywood Wedding was quite possibly one of the most laid back events I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing! Elegant in style and relaxed in nature, the whole day was amazing from beginning to end. We had incredible weather too - from beautiful blue skies and gorgeous low winter sun to torrential hailstorm downpours and bouncing rain all in the space of a few hours!

Mandy & Paul married in the drawing room in Abbeywood’s stunning house and their wedding breakfast & evening reception followed in the iconic Glasshouse which Mandy and her daughters dressed beautifully with a peacock theme.

Congratulations Mandy & Paul! Here are your wedding day highlights :)

How long have you been together? Eight years.

Why did you choose Abbeywood for your wedding? We chose Abbeywood because it’s a beautiful venue which offers so many choices for your wedding ceremony and it’s amazing gardens. Abbeywood is also local to us.

Tell me about your outfits and accessories - what did you love about them? : I wanted a dress with a difference, nothing traditional and very glitzy, which is just what I love. My hair accessory was hand made to match and my necklace and earrings were from Ted Baker - along with my shoes - chosen because of the colours. Ted Baker uses a lot of rose gold which tied in lovely with my dress.
Paul’s suit and shirt was also from Ted Baker.

What made you choose your decor and styling? Tell me about your flowers/florist: Our peacock theme was chosen by myself (Mandy). I wanted a different theme from the usual choices as again I love different and wanted ‘Elegant’. All the displays/decor and bouquet were made by myself and the venue decorated by myself with my two eldest daughters.

What was your first dance song and why? Our first dance was by Ellie Goulding ‘How long will I love you ‘, a lovely tune and words.

Did you have any entertainment? : A pianist played as we entered the ceremony, during the signing of register and on our way out of the ceremony. He then went onto play throughout our welcome drinks, canapés and wedding breakfast.

What was your favourite part of the day and why: ALL of it, it was just perfect and relaxed as planned.

What was it like working with Louise Jacob Photography? Lou is amazing, after researching and reading about photographers for weddings we contacted approximately 8, and for many reasons Lou stood out. She always contacted us promptly, even though we never met prior to our wedding day I felt I had known her for years, such a lovely lovely lady! 
We loved the way Lou does a lot of natural shots, this way the guests were at ease, as well Lou shot the selected guests in posed photos too. Lou exceded our expectations and will certainly be recommending her.

Do you have any tips for future brides and grooms? Make it just the way you want it! 
It’s your special day and don’t let anyone influence your decisions!

Castello Di Meleto Wedding / Natalie & Richard / Tuscany

INTERNATIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY- CASTELLO DI MELETO

I know we are in the middle of Winter, but cast your mind back to the Summer of 2018 (…I know, it’s a distant memory now) but in August last year I travelled to Sienna in Tuscany to shoot Natalie & Richard’s wedding at the stunning Castello Di Meleto in Gaiole in Chianti.

If you haven’t been to Tuscany before, go! It is beautiful beyond words! It’s breathtakingly beautiful actually and on Sunday 12th August, with barely a cloud in the sky, the hazy Italian sun shone down on the gorgeous Natalie and Richard as they said perfect wedding vows overlooking the Tuscan hills, surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Confetti and a champagne reception followed, then the wedding party dined al-fresco in the courtyard complete with festoon lights, emotional speeches and a Mille Feuille wedding cake.

As the night drew in, the stars came out and Natalie, Richard and their guests danced, drank and sang into the early hours of the morning.

If you are getting married at Castello Di Meleto, like Natalie & Richard did (or indeed anywhere else in the world!) and are looking for an international wedding photographer, to capture your day then please say hello, I would love to hear all your plans!

Ciao!

Fantastic to work with:

CHESHIRE UNPOSED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY - How I shoot weddings.

Ah, weddings!  I love them! I can't get enough of them and I can't actually think of a better day to be part of! So much is going on from bridal prep right through to the end and once the nerves have dissipated and the champagne's flowing it's just one big massive party - jam packed full of emotion,  merriment and celebration! I'm unbelievably lucky to be able to call this my job and I am so thankful to all my couples for allowing me to tell their story with real documentary style photography.

I'm so excited to share Chloé and John's gorgeous December wedding with you.  It was so much fun to shoot.  The ceremony was at Norbury Church in Hazel Grove - Chloé's dream venue, and the reception at the Hallmark Hotel in Handforth.   Chloé looked stunning as did her bridal party and John and all the lads all looked dapper in their suits.  It was a chilled out day, spent with their family and friends and it was as always, a complete honour to be a part of it and capture it for them.
