Hatherley Manor in the Summer Wedding

Every few months we get a request to shoot at Hatherley Manor, near Cheltenham. We’re great friends with the wedding planners there (even shooting their wedding!) in the past year or so, so are happy to be called their recommended suppliers. This wedding had a little twist to in with regards to planning however.¬†Six days before the wedding the couple contacted us. Their prebooked photographer had injured their leg and were no longer able to work. I cringed in empathy at this, I’d hate to have such an accident so close to a couples big day! We checked the diary and found we had a rare weekend day free so took on their wedding for the couple.

Alex is a full time photographer so I knew that our work had to stand on its own against a super critical eye. Personally I would be the same when choosing a photographer for my own day too. Gladly Alex was super happy with our work and chuffed to bits with the results. I love having a quick browse on Facebook and seeing one of my wedding pics pop up as not only a brides profile pic but also their cover image. To think that my images made someones day/week/month/year fills me with pride and helps me know that I’m on the right path and working towards helping even more couples in the future.
