A Wedding In Knutsford at The Belle Epoque
Gary and Steph had their wedding in Knutsford at The Belle Epoque which meant I got to shoot again at one of the prettiest venues in Cheshire. The Belle Epoque is in the heart of Knutsford and is a bit of a celebrity favourite with regulars such as Roger Moore and David Beckham! Steph was getting ready at The Belle Epoque and as I walked in I was delighted to see Rebecca Anderton on hair and make up duties. I’d only just been blogging that same day about the last time we worked together at Sally and James’ wedding at Manchester Town Hall in November. Rebecca is a brilliant stylist and make up artist and one I recommend to all my couples, so get her booked in as she is very popular!
Intimate Family Wedding
Steph and Gary wanted an intimate, family wedding without any fuss and they’d personalised their day with a beer theme, so all the tables were named after their favourite tipples and decorated with beer bottles and they’d swapped flowers for bottle tops for the men’s corsages, a brilliant touch I’d never seen before. Adding to the decoration were light up letters from The Word Is Love which were displayed outside the service room, as always adding some ‘wow’ factor to the wedding. Steph told me that she’d booked both Rebecca and The Word Is Love as I recommend them so highly (although their work speaks for itself), but it’s always great to work alongside top class suppliers who go the extra mile to make sure you have an amazing wedding day.
The marriage service took place inside The Belle Epoque, which has some challenging light conditions for the Nikon’s to cope with, but I quite like testing my kit and my own abilities and I think I did a half decent job! After the wedding, Steph and Gary enjoyed some Pimms with their guests before a short walk out into Knutsford for a quick set of couple photos before we returned for the wedding breakfast. Having been treated to a bite to eat I can also agree that the food at The Belle Epoque is top drawer! With Steph and Gary having a quieter day, there wasn’t a first dance to photograph, so I shot the speeches and then ended my day shooting a wedding in Knutsford at The Belle Epoque with Steph and Gary cutting their wedding cake. It was a lovely day and I am very much looking forward to heading back to The Belle Epoque for two more weddings (both within a week) in June this year!
