Debbie and Stephen at Risley Hall

On Sunday I had the great pleasure of photographing the lovely Debbie and Steven's wedding. What really stood out to me about this wedding was the relaxed atmosphere and stunning venue. The day started with Debbie opening the card Steven had written for her to open on the morning of the big day. This was a lovely gesture that I have not witnessed before and really set the mood for the rest of the morning.  The time to get ready went by quickly with Debbie having her hair done by the hairdresser she has been using for many years who was also a guest to the wedding. 

Debbie was dressed in a lace 3/4 length tea style dress with antique pink LK Bennet shoes. She clutched a bouquet of pink, purple and blue hues which went well with her daughter's bridesmaid dress of powder blue. 

During the wedding, Debbie's daughter sang and played the guitar after the sit-down meal and speeches. This was a lovely gesture which the guest joined it with, singing along with Sophie. 

In the evening more guest arrived and were treated to beautifully crafted cupcakes and lots of dancing. For the first dance, they again had live music from their friend who sang. It was heartwarming to see such a close knitted family enjoying the day and everyone was so welcome to me the photographer. I really enjoyed shooting this wedding and I wish Debbie and Steve the best of luck for the future.
