Clare and Ryan’s Wedding Day was at the very Picturesque and photogenic Combermere Abbey in South Cheshire near Whitchurch.
Clare booked me by recommendation from her friend Rachel who helped Clare with her wedding planning , It certainly was a very well planned wedding at a great venue . Thank you Rachel , keep up your good work with your friends .
I also knew it was going to be a great day as I had already photographed Clare and Ryan and their little daughter Ava a few weeks Earlier.
And that was great fun with all of us ending up in a river !! here is the link to that fun shoot https://rickdellphotography.co.uk/clare-ryans-engagement-shoot/
I met Clare 1st at their house with her dad and Bridesmaids for the preparations before going to Comberemere Abbey.
The Ceremony was lovely in a conservatory which was contained inside a maze.
Ryan literally swepped Clare off her feat very romatically , at the end of the ceremomy during the 1st kiss which was a lovely highlight of the day
It was then time to keep looking at the changeable English Weather and little did even I know that this would turn into a BIG advantage later .
As soon as the ceremony was over as the skys started filling with cloud we were off to capture those special images of just Clare and Ryan and we had great gardens and a huge Lake to visit .
So off we went looking after Clare and her fab dress with natural walk shots and fun by the lake at Combermere Abbey , I was very impressed with their smoke action .
Until the skys finally opened and the nearby woods helped keep us dry, so a chance for some brolly shots before heading back to the drinks reception for a even more informal documentary style of wedding photography.
Then the most hilarious humour during the speeches mostly at Ryan’s deep embrassement and everyone else’s huge enjoyment [ The best man certainly got him ] !
I then witnessed a 1st in 20 years of wedding photography the very changeable weather produced a huge Rainbow which was certainly the biggest bonus image of the day .
We might of had some dissapointing rain but we also had the BIG Rainbow.
Lucky ! Very Lucky !!
With dancing and night shots I completed my coverage of Clare and Ryan’s Amazing Wedding day at Combermere Abbey and it was a pleasure to help such a great couple.
