Ashley & Brent

Before this wedding party, Ashley and Brent had just got married for the second time in the UK having married a week earlier in Thailand – this meant Ashley got to look fabulous in her amazing dress a second time round!

Encountering two heavy rainstorms on the drive over to the Ye Olde Bell at Barnaby Moor from Manchester, I had no idea what to expect weather-wise or how it would affect the time we had planned for outdoor photographs; I knew I was geared up for shooting in the rain but I’ve not met many wedding parties who are as enthusiastic about it as I am! Luckily, the clouds and puddles did nothing to dampen any spirits and during the group photos we had lots of laughs and fooling about, I don’t normally include group photos in blog posts but these ended up being yet another spontaneously enjoyable part of the day and a great introduction to Ashley and Brent’s family and friends.

A video had been prepared so guests could see the ceremony in Thailand, it also meant that those lucky enough to have been there could relive what must have been an absolutely unforgettable experience culminating in Ashley & Brent’s wedding day. The video gave way to the first dance with a soundtrack provided by mighty 15 piece soul band The Soul Jam. They followed this performance with a formidable set of Soul classics, their big, live band sound filling the dancefloor (and hotel) all evening – Ashley even stepped in as a backing singer after a quick dress change! I never intended to stay so late but my exit at 11:30 might give you an idea how much I enjoyed this superb wedding party – thank you for having me as your wedding (party) photographer.

Congratulations Ashley & Brent!
