Cheshire Wedding Photography : Catherine & David : Part Two

Catherine & David married at Rookery Hall in Nantwich, Cheshire and it was a downright pleasure to immerse myself in their wedding day in order to tell the story. I loved everything about the experience but whilst the focus of my interest predominantly centres around people, I must say that I loved the material detail of their big day too. Catherine sourced a series of old suitcases on eBay and having immersed herself in design inspiration, put them to great effect in serving as a cake stand, a card box and a table plan. In situ, on the eve of the wedding, David pieced together all the components that Catherine had crafted. The whole of the day was a resonantly collaborative process between the two and that’s a great thing to see, and to see it all come to fruition.

A big bar of chocolate for each of the guests with a photograph of Catherine & David on the front and the wedding breakfast menu on the back…

On which note, my thanks to Catherine & David for seating me as a guest. The food was excellent, as I’ve come to expect from the Hand Picked Hotels I’ve found myself photographing weddings at up and down the country. Makes for a very happy and energised photographer indeed…

Lucas…

What better day to get married than on your birthday? Twice as many cakes…

That moment when you think you’re the subject of a photograph, but you’re not. But then you are, in the end…

And then when you least think it to be the case…

Catherine & David had Munch along to provide the dance-floor entertainment (indeed the musical accompaniment to the dance-floor entertainment provided by their guests :~) On their Web site, the band describe themselves as, “a fun, friendly, highly experienced professional wedding party band.” They speak the truth.

Congratulations Catherine & David and thanks for having me along for an absolute blast of a day (and best of luck David with your exams this week!)
