Kaz & Jon

I feel rather blessed being able to work alongside so many fabulous people on some of the most important days of their lives. Kaz and Jon are no exception to this rule – ever since they got in touch earlier this year, I’ve known that they would be awesome to work alongside and it has certainly been the case for their special day at the Pinewood Hotel in Handforth.

The photography started at Kaz’s Mum’s house where I spent the morning capturing some very relaxed preparations; there was even time between hair and make up (and champagne) for Kaz to present her bridesmaids with some very pretty necklaces with Jon’s daughter receiving an extra special one to mark the occasion.

Over at the Pinewood Hotel, I was greeted by Jon whose nerves just melted away as he first saw his daughter, then wife-to-be walk down the aisle. After the ceremony, guests were given balloons to release which was a really fun way to begin the group photos and get everyone out into the sunshine. Guests were then treated to entertainment from mind bendingly good magician Alan Hudson and talented caricature artist Mike Bryson while Kaz, Jon and I picked up what we were doing when we were last here and took in the gardens for their bridal portraits.

After the speeches came the part I had been really looking forward to. I’ve been a Northern Uproar fan since I was 14 so meeting the band then seeing them play live that evening was a massive pleasure and well worth staying around for. Leon Meya was on top form with his band, keeping the dance floor filled all night, a rare skill that you don’t see that often and one which made this an incredible night for everyone involved. Thanks for having me along, please find a few of my favourite documentary wedding photographs below.

Congratulations Kaz & Jon!
