Catherine and Steven

Late summer saw me heading down the M6 to Buckinghamshire, and the small village of Creslow. At the heart lies the beautiful Creslow Manor, a wedding venue (and home), run by Steven’s family. Today, Steven was the groom!

Creslow Manor house dates back to the 13th Century. It holds the title of the oldest continually inhabited house in Buckinghamshire! Apparently Henry the 8th’s cattle used to graze on the grounds, a special place indeed for the big day.

It was at the family home, that Catherine and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The preparations took place on the top floor of the Hall. I always look for nice directional light in my images, and it was perfect during the morning. Before heading to the picturesque church ceremony in Whitchurch, I quickly caught up with Steven and the guys, who were having a quick brandy in the local pub :-)

After a moving ceremony, in which Steven and Catherine were both grinning from ear to ear, it was a short drive back to Creslow, where sunshine soaked drinks and canapés on the lawn commenced.

Excellent speeches followed, with all of them being excellent. Steven’s brother Adam was the best man, and delivered an amazing dead pan speech – the new Jack Dee I think. As the evening guests arrived, a caleigh band really got the party going, and the marquee was packed to the rafters with dancing and celebrating! It was an excellent day, and after capturing the shapes being thrown, I headed back to Manchester, my memory cards full!

    Hi Adam,

    Lovely photographs.
    I salute the brave person who let the ladies put all their make-up on the snooker table :D
    Are the couple teachers or something to do with geology as I noticed a few scale rules in the 'guard of honour'.

      Thanks Alex :-) Yep - good spot. Catherine is a teacher (hence the rulers) and Steven a Farmer (hence the pithcforks!)
      :-)

    Beautifully documented. I love that shot of the older guys, hanging out and drinking beer.

    Great set of images Adam. Love the one of the guys having a beer on the tree trunk and the award winning dance shot :)

    Blinding work as ever Adam! There's a lovely depth and quality to your images. The with old man checking you out when you crouched down to get a shot of the other guy snapping made me chuckle!

    So good Adam! Great reactions & emotions captured throughout the day, and that first dance shot is an absolute killer. Great set!
