Well what a difference a day makes at Mere Court Hotel in Cheshire. My last wedding there had torrential rain for most of the day (you can see that wedding here) but the sun shone down from sun rise to sunset at this unbelievably happy wedding! I honestly believe that watching this adorable couple will brighten your day so just sit back and enjoy…

I had the pleasure of not only working with one of my favourite ever photographer duos, the super talented Evie and Jamie at Chapter Photography, but also got to work with Flossy & Leigh again who were on hand in the morning to do the girls hair and make-up! While Evie and I spent the morning enjoying all the girliness that was happening at Louise’s Mums house the boys were over with Michael and from what I’ve seen it looks like they also had a lot of fun…
After helping out getting the bridesmaids in their dresses and making sure Louise looked perfect we were off to the church to capture her arrival. The priest had been adamant that he’d be dragging her down the aisle if she was late so they ended up nearly half an hour early, just to be sure! There’s a first for everything…
The ceremony was beautiful. The priest kept it light-hearted and fun at times and the bride and groom spent most of the service grinning from ear to ear. I loved seeing all of their guests faces too, everyone was just so happy for them and it really was infectious…
I think the priest realised we weren’t the ‘usual’ types of wedding photographers and videographers and was soon enjoying all the fuss with us when the couple came out to their adoring fans and a shower of pink confetti. It looked so nice them walking out of the church instead of in the road!
We then all packed up our cars and headed over to Mere Court Hotel to welcome the new Mr and Mrs Rizeakos to their wedding reception. The top came down on the car and guests enjoyed taking lots of pictures of the couple before we whisked them away to get some gorgeous shots of them in the grounds.
After the group shots we made our way inside and filmed the guests cheering as they welcomed the happy couple in to the wedding breakfast room. It looked amazing with the sparkly backdrop and pretty centrepieces! I loved the speeches too, the perfect blend of funny and sincere.
Then it was time for the evening reception with the traditional cutting of the cake and the first dance. Louise and Michael had taken the time to learn a few moves for theirs and they looked simply stunning gliding all over the dancefloor…
