When Julie and Steve asked us to be their Bolton School Wedding Photographer, we were thrilled! We absolutely love photographing weddings at this venue. It could be mistaken for Hogwarts as the building dates back as far as the 1500’s. Alex and Adele who organise and make sure the weddings run flawlessly are just a joy to work with.
Back to the beginning. Julie contacted us to enquire about us photographing their Christmas wedding. I instantly recognised her last name as we have “Bretherton’s” in our family too. So I asked Julie if she knew anybody called Paul Bretherton? “yes my uncle is called Paul” she replied, “yep, mine too” Turns out that me and Julie are actually second cousins and have never met before. Talk about a small world! We arranged to meet Julie and Steve at their home. We had a great laugh talking about family and their wedding plans.
So when the big day arrived, they had a surprise wedding guest turn up “Storm Doris” decided to pay a visit, the weather was just wild! Did it dampen the spirits? Not a chance! It was a wedding filled with class and joy. A masquerade themed wedding, everbody looked just awesome with their masks on as the newlyweds entered the room. Their adorable little girl Maggie had such a great day too.
We always make friends with our couples, with this wedding however we have gained new family members. Thank you Julie and Steve for having us capture your special day. X
