Didsbury House Hotel Wedding : Tammi and Louis

 

Last November I had the pleasure of documenting Tammi and Louis’s wedding at the Didsbury House Hotel in Manchester. Despite only being a 10 minutes drive down the road from my house, this was my first visit to Didsbury House, an intimate venue perfect for a winter wedding.

 

Tammi and Louis live in Canada, and it certainly was an international affair. An Anglo-French wedding with friends and family gathering from around the globe. Before the day when we chatted via skype, they were keen to book a photographer that captured the day, and especially the kids in a natural way. I’ve shot many weddings with no children in attendance, but always seem to find a little more action photographically when a few little ones are around. I don’t know where they get their energy from (certainly my two never stop) – but I enjoyed trying to keep up with Louis’s two boys and the other kids in attendance…getting images with more story and less “say cheese!”.

 

With a 4pm ceremony, the sun had set before Tammi was in her dress. As always, I shot without flash, only using natural light. I want the images to look and feel the same as it did in real life, not artificially bright and devoid of ambiance. Winter weddings can be seen as tricky from a photographers point of view,  I see many comments on how terrible the lighting was at certain venues or time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of natural light….but I’m equally happy shooting a 4pm winter ceremony in Manchester! I’m always more interested in moments, composition and emotion.

 

I loved capturing the day for Tammi and Louis, such an amazing and in love couple. You can see some of my favourites frames below…

    Fantastic images, looks like a good fun wedding! Dark winter nights can be hard work, but I agree with you on showing how the day actually was, rather than using flash at every opportunity!
