Wedding Photographers Rogerthorpe Manor | Michelle and Martin

Michelle and Martin booked us as their Rogerthorpe Manor wedding photographers less than three weeks before their big day after we were recommended to them by a mutual friend.  We've been booked at fairly short notice before but never as close to the big day as this! 

We hit it off straight away with this lovely couple and we all breathed as huge sigh of relief when they booked - us because we really wanted to share Michelle and Martin's wedding day and make sure that they had some great photographs to remember it by and them because it was uncertain as to whether they would have a wedding photographer at all. We hear so many sad stories from couples who are disappointed with their wedding photos and regret not booking a professional wedding photographer but everything turned out well in the end for Michelle and Martin.

Although the weather looked decidedly dodgy, having thrown it down with rain at least twice before we left home for Rogerthorpe Manor, it held off, allowing us to have a laugh with the boys outside on the main lawn before waiting at the bottom of the stairs for Michelle to make her entrance with her brother, Michael, who had the privilege of giving her away.  Michelle's brothers played a big part in this wedding - Philip as best man to Martin and Michael escorting his sister into the ceremony in the Cawthorne Suite. Someone else who deserves a mention is Liam, the couple's son, who might have assumed that being in the photographs would be very boring  but we did our best to prove otherwise and we think he had a good time.

After the ceremony and with the rain ever threatening, we grabbed a few minutes to photograph Michelle on her own and the couple together before starting the groups. Everyone was fantastic and because Michelle and Martin had kept their group shot list to a small number, we had them done quickly and this left a plenty of time for a some more relaxed couple photographs around the grounds.

Michelle and Martin were such a great couple to work with and although Michelle had been very apprehensive about being photographed, she said that she felt completely at ease with us and this, of course, made for great photographs.

Congratulations from both of us and a huge thank you for booking us to photograph your special day, for making us feel very much appreciated and for the wonderful message you sent us the day after your wedding.
