Leona & Michael

This summer has been a busy one and I’ve been a part of many beautiful moments on different couple’s wedding days; you also meet a lot of cool people and Leona and Michael’s friendly, welcoming family fall neatly into this category. I was warmly welcomed by Leona and the girls who were making an early start at Rios hair and beauty salon where I could start with some natural portraits of their preparations before the ceremony at St James’s church in Oldham. Getting so many bridesmaids ready is no easy task and the staff managed to do the stunning job you see here amidst all of the laughs, emotional moments and bubbly on the go. After the ceremony, there was a dash over to Bolholt Country Park hotel in Bury with awesome videographer Paul Bamforth for the reception where we were serenaded with the singing talents of Steve Cole – I’ve not met many people who can get a room of over a hundred people all stood up, holding hands, singing ‘That’s Amore’ before they’ve brought out the first course! The evening portrait session gave us the softest light and led to the photos you see here.

Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day and for making me feel like one of the family.

Congratulations Leona & Michael!
