In Deep. Antique Lace & Paper Pom Poms For A Real Wedding At Victoria Baths, Manchester – Laura & Nathan

February 27th, 2014 | Julia Braime

James Tracey Photography

Last week when I blogged an interview with our wonderful Featured Supplier and ex copper, James Tracey Photography, I led the piece with an image of a beaming bride at a colourful altar and over on Facebook lots of you fell in love with her.  Well, her name is Laura and you were right to go head over heels – because it seems she’s rather fabulous.  I’m back this afternoon to feature Laura and Nathan’s fabulously cool and quirky swimming pool wedding (yes, I’ve never seen one of those before either!) in all it’s glory. 

This has to be one of my favourites to date.

Laura says:  We got engaged in October 2013 in Saint-Cirq Lapopie (in the South of France). We were on our holiday with our six month old baby boy and Nathan got a sudden urge to ask me to marry him. It was a beautiful spot by the river. It wasn’t planned so he found a twig and tied it in a knot around my wedding finger.

We have been together for 18 years (we met at school when we were 16!) and finally tied the knot on 27th May 2013 at Victoria Baths, Manchester.

Victoria Baths is part of the restoration project. It was opened in 1906 as a swimming baths and Turkish baths.  The restoration of the building begin in 1995. It is a beautiful old building with ornate stain glass windows. One day they hope to restore the swimming pools themselves and open it up again to the public.

We actually got married in the old male swimming pool in the deep end!

We wanted to get married somewhere that was a little different and allowed us to do what we wanted.  Victoria Baths allows you to hire out the entire building and you are able to bring your own caterers, music and decorations in.

We wanted the day to be very relaxed with a feel of a street party. No formalities so everyone could relax and have fun!  We chose a colour scheme of pale pink and green.

The bridesmaids wore pink dresses and the groom, best man and ushers wore pink ties.  The tiles of the swimming baths are green so we hung pink and green paper pom poms from the ceiling along with bunting.

I wanted something every simple for my wedding dress. I visited Jane Bourvis in London after a friend recommended her. Jane owns a small shop in Notting Hill and as soon as you walk in you are greeted with antique lace hanging from the ceiling. Jane told me she had just restored some lace the night before. She dressed me in a pale cream slip and placed the lace petticoat over the top. It was stunning and a one off. I bought it within half an hour of walking into the shop. I just felt special. There was a story behind it too as an elderly lady in Scotland had found her mothers veil in the loft and that was what Jane used to create the dress – old Scottish lace.

James Tracey Photography

The bridesmaids each wore a lace dress which I bought from a beach side shop in Cape Town. I just saw them and knew they would match the dress and that each of the bridesmaids would like the style.

Nathan wore a tailored suit from A Suit That Fits. The best man and ushers wore their own suits with a pink tie.

My friend has a beautiful old beetle called Gracie. He came to the hotel to pick me up (complete with a flat cap) and drove me to the baths.

It was a family affair!  My cousin is a register so he married us and my other cousin works at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) so he arrange for four different bands to play:  a string quartet to walk down the aisle to, an acoustic guitar whist we drank fizz, a two piece acoustic band and a 9 piece disco band.  Amazing!

10 of my closest friends and family made cakes for the deserts. There were some amazing cakes ranging from carrot cake, lemon drizzle and early great tea muffins. Everyone just helped themselves.

We had 45 children at the wedding so we had to provide entertainment. We hired two nanny’s to look after the babies and provided lots of toys. We hired a bouncy castle to go in the female pool and we created a cinema with a big screen and lots of popcorn and bean bags so the kids to watch a film. It was nice as the adults could have a rest and enjoy the fizz.

At the end of the day we planned a big surprise for everyone. We didn’t know how well it would go down. We hired 150 headsets and held a silent disco in the main hall. At first everyone didn’t quite know what to make of it. By the end of the night everyone was dancing their hearts out. We had three different channels with different types of music. There was some crazy dancing going on.

We went to the Lake District for a few days after the wedding and found cosy pubs to relax in.  Bliss!

James Tracey Photography

I kept sneaking away for a few minutes every now and again – either with Nathan or own my own to just catch my breath and smile. So my top tip for other Brides Up North would be that it’s nice to stop for a few minutes and reflect on things throughout the day itself.

Congratulations Laura & Nathan!

Vibrance & Joy. Fabulous Photographers: Dotmoxee Photography PLUS Discount For Wedding Blog Readers

February 6th, 2014 | Julia Braime

 Dotmoxee Photography

Whilst there’s nothing I like better than getting stuck into blogging a full Real Wedding feature for an individual couple (and you can see that we have covered quite a few – ok, hundreds – of those over the years), but recently I’ve enjoyed putting together our Fabulous Photographer features too.

Each supplier showcase gives an insight into the photographer’s work and personality, but also opens the door on lots of gorgeous wedding days that we might not otherwise share. 

It seems a Dotmoxee Photography bride and groom can expect a wedding day full of wide smiles, vibrant colour, special touches, quirky details, and most of all – an amazing set of images at the end of it all.

So let’s meet Emilie & John-Paul, the duo who together make up Dotmoxee Photography, our newest Brides Up North Featured Supplier. 

 Dotmoxee Photography

How did you get into wedding photography?

After both studying photography at university, we were introduced through mutual friends one Christmas Eve four years ago in our local pub. The conversation instantly took off as we began sharing our interests and love for photography and film.

After a few meet ups and many ideas later, we began planning our photography business partnership. It wasn’t until we were asked to photograph a friend’s wedding that we caught the wedding bug and haven’t looked back since.

 Dotmoxee Photography

 Dotmoxee Photography

Why wedding photography specifically?

Although we both come from very different photographic backgrounds (fashion, music and advertising) we were both heavily involved with documentary and street photography. Weddings offer a perfect environment for us to tell a story and we love the unpredictability each moment has. Also the fact that each wedding is so different, it’s a new challenge for us to approach with a fresh pair of eyes.

Dotmoxee Photography

What is your favourite thing about being wedding photographers?

The fact that we have constant excitement where it’ll take us, and all the incredible places we get to photograph. Also meeting our couples, who are all amazing and unique in their own way. We love hearing about their plans and being part of the journey and excitement – a journey that leaves them with our photographs. That’s pretty special in our book.

Mr & Mrs Perfect. A Real Wedding In Manchester – Gemma & Nigel

February 4th, 2014 | Julia Braime

Stella Photography

Yes, that really is today’s bride and groom’s married name – Mr & Mrs Perfect.  Don’t you love it.  No pressure or anything..!  Anyway, it turns out that their gorgeous Real Wedding in Manchester was pretty much that – a chic and simple and prettily perfect winter city wedding. 

With images by Stella Photography.

Stella Photography

Gemma says:  Nigel asked me to marry him on 1st December 2012, on Llanmadoc beach in Wales, on a weekend away. It was a beautiful isolated beach on a lovely crisp winter’s day.

Stella Photography

Stella Photography

We were married on 23rd November 2013.  We had the ceremony at Manchester Town Hall, and the reception at The Place Apartment Hotel, a converted cotton warehouse in central Manchester. 

Stella Photography

We wanted everything to be indoors, firstly because it is Manchester, so it was more than likely to rain, and secondly because of the time of year. We had looked at country locations, but decided that as we had so many guests coming not only from over this country but also from abroad, the city centre would be best for travel from the airport, train or the motorway. Also, we live very close to the city centre, so going in to see our wedding coordinator at the venue, and meeting local suppliers was so much easier than if we had picked somewhere far away.  Manchester Town Hall is a stunning old building, with high stained glass windows so we felt it added to the occasion. The Place is beautifully restored, maintaining many original features such as red brick walls and steel columns. 

Stella Photography

Our theme was simplicity.  The venue for the reception made it seem urban chic and we also teamed this with a vintage feel with the flower displays – very natural, in small glass bottles and jars – and hand-tied favours with luggage tag labels.

The wedding was mainly white and ivory, however my husband had decided that he wanted to wear his kilt, in the family tradition, so I picked a dark forest green for the bridesmaids to match this. 

Stella Photography#

My dress was from The Staite Rooms in Huddersfield. It was a Maggie Sottero gown (Geneva), fitted to the waist and slightly over the hips, and had a long train. The top layer was a delicate lace with floral adornments, and a a band in light mocha under the bust, which made it look quite different to any I had seen before. I loved my long train!  The dress was strapless which I didn’t think I would like when trying on dresses, but it fit beautifully with a lace-up back.

My bridesmaids wore full length forest green chiffon dresses from Fairytale Occasions in Bury. The groomsmen wore kilts in a similar style to my husband, our fathers wore black suits to match the kilt jackets. These were all hired from Slaters.

I had a fantastic hair & makeup artist come to make up myself, my bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law at the hotel, Jodie Smith, also based in Manchester.

Real Wedding Recap Winter 2013: Low Key Lovely. Pronovias For A Real Wedding In Manchester –Nichola & Neil

December 27th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Its holiday season here on the blog, and as the team take a break until to rest and recharge for what’s set to be the biggest and best year yet at Brides Up North HQ, we’ll be leaving you with a reduced blogging schedule so that you still get your daily dose of wedding pretty.

 

Usual service will recommence on 2nd January 2014,  but in the meantime watch out for recaps of our favourite Real Weddings in 2013.  Drop in every day for the very, very prettiest wedding inspiration and if you are a Brides Up North bride, to see if your Real Wedding was one of our top picks.

What Nichola and Neil’s Real Wedding lacks in fiddly detail, it makes up for class.  I love their low key yet expertly styled celebration in the North’s capital of cool.  This is how it’s done, people.

Nichola says:  We got engaged in August 2010 in Sicily. We had taken a trip to Mount Etna to watch the sunset. We watched the sunset together and then Neil asked me to marry him producing the most gorgeous pearl and diamond ring

We had a Catholic ceremony at St.Mary’s Church, Levensulme (our local church) followed by a reception at the Radisson Edwardian in Manchester City Centre on 6th April 2013.

Having both grown up in Manchester we wanted a wedding that really reflected our love of the city. Neil is an architect so the venue was really important to us. We had quite a large wedding as we are both from big Irish families and have big groups of friends we have grown up with so finding a venue we loved that was big enough was a struggle.

.

When we walked into the Radisson at a wedding fair we knew it was perfect. It was the right size and it had character to it that other venues just didn’t have.  I work in customer service and being a 5 star hotel knew that we would get first class service which was the top of my priority list.

.

.

 Adam Riley Photography

.

We had two key themes for the day, pearls and lace from a decoration point of view but also Manchester and Music.

.

The Radisson was once a music venue (The Lesser Free Trade Hall) and Neil loves music so we created invitations that looked like gig tickets, our table gift was a CD of music from artists that had played at the Free Trade Hall and the table names were all artist that had played at the venue.

.

I wanted to keep the decorations as low key as possible as I really wanted to do these myself. I collected glass jars for months with the help of family and friends and we filled them with pearls and candles and covered them in lace. I bought hessian to make runners for the table and for around some of the jars too. We really wanted everything to feel personal and ‘us’ so the invites, table plans, place names and order of service were all designed and created by us.

.

We kept everything quite neutral. My dress was ivory and the bridesmaids’ dresses matched too. The stationary was all created using brown card to match the hemp.

.

.

 Adam Riley Photography

.

.

.

.

I choose a Pronovias dress from the Bridal Path in Althrincham. I must have gone to nearly 10 shops and always fell in love with a dress in each one but never committed to buying them.

.

When I tried this dress on I knew it was the one, the lace was amazing and I really wanted lace in the dress. I loved the detail on the straps and waistline and adored the way the skirt fell.

.

The bridesmaids wore gorgeous lace dresses in the same colour as mine so they were very classic and they looked amazing next to my dress. I bought the dresses from Marks and Spencer as we didn’t want to spend huge amounts of money on ‘typical’ bridesmaids dresses that had no character.

.

The men’s suits were from Groom in Wilmslow. We didn’t want a traditional tails/morning suit as when we looked at these the fabric was stiff and stuffy. We had wanted Navy all along as Neil has a lovely navy suit at home and the colour looks great on him. We had been to a lot of places looking at suits but the minute we walked in groom we saw the perfect suit. The material was lovely, clearly great quality, and the accessories were perfect for the colour scheme.

.

.

 Adam Riley Photography

.

.

.

We used Knutsford Bloom for the flowers. I wanted to bring in some spring colours in the flowers as everything else was so neutral and Bridget was brilliant helping us pick and the flowers were amazing on the day.

.

I carried a medium hand tied bouquet with gorgeous yellows, pinks and blue to bring some colour to the day and tie in the suits.  The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of my bouquet.

The special touches for us were the personal side of things, making all the stationery and decorations. Picking all the church readings, prayers and hymns ourselves meant we picked things that really meant something to us as a couple and not just standard wedding words

.

.

 Adam Riley Photography

.

.

My favourite part of the day was getting to say I do and finally marry Neil (after nearly 10 years together) with all our friends and family there to watch.

We didn’t want to spend too much money on transport for ourselves on the day so we only booked one vintage cream car that could take the wedding party ahead of my Dad and Me. Then after the ceremony Neil and I took the car while the guests travelled in two vintage double decker buses to the hotel. Our photographer jumped on the buses to take some pictures of all the guests and really captured the atmosphere of the day.

Our photographer was Adam Riley a reportage style photographer. We both agreed we didn’t want anything too posed on the day (apart from the family shots for the mums!) and photography was really important to us. Adam was an amazing choice and we were so happy with what he created for us. He captured the day in a way we could not have imagined and everyone has said how unique and fantastic the pictures are. The hard part now comes in picking which ones to put in the album!

.

We wanted some time for just me and Neil to walk around some of the important places in Manchester that held a place in our hearts to have some pictures captured, Adam was so on board with this idea and had met Neil in the week before the wedding to walk around to the different spots and work out a plan for the day.

.

We had decided not to have a video on the day due to budget but Neil’s mum planned a surprise for us and got the details of a videographer, Craig at Unforgettable Memories Films. She told Neil about the surprise and he met with Craig ahead of the wedding to talk everything through. When Craig turned up at the house the morning of the wedding it was such a shock and I couldn’t have been happier.

For the cake we used Richard’s Cakes. My father, sister and myself all have a gluten free diet so we needed someone who could cater to this. We had decided to have individual cakes as dessert also so wanted something that looked like a dessert. The cakes were beautiful and so tasty.

Having a big Irish crowd and also lots of friends who love to party at the wedding meant that the entertainment was really important to us. We choose a local DJ, Andy Murphy, and a local Irish band, The Last Drop.

.

We know Andy well and he was fantastic, he came round to the house in the run up to the wedding to talk through how things would run on the night. Andy really knows how to pick songs to keep the crowd happy. We were struggling with a first dance choice as Neil is so into his music but not big on dancing! We settled on The Stone Roses – This Is The One. It went down a storm.

.

The band were great and worked brilliantly with Andy to make sure everything ran smoothly and the dance floor was always busy.

.

.

Adam Riley Photography

.

We went to America for three weeks on our honeymoon. We really wanted the trip of a lifetime. We started in Vegas and travelled to the west coast from Yosemite down to San Diego stopping at lots of places on the way.  It was the most amazing three weeks we could have had.

.

.

Adam Riley Photography

.

.

My top tips for other Brides Up North would be to make the day personal to you. It will help you have the day you want and its great when everyone you love has a good time because of what you plan.

.

Make sure you take some time for the two of you, its hard but you will love having sometime taking it all in. We had that when we went of for pictures and I am so glad we did as the day flew by so quick.

All About Us. A Bespoke Gown For A Real Wedding At The Bowdon Rooms, Cheshire – Hayley & Damian

August 14th, 2013 | Julia Braime

Jonny Back Photography

I adore everything about today’s wedding.  The venue, which I happen to know rather well (The Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition reprises at The Bowdon Rooms on Sunday 3rd November – have YOU pre-registered yet?), the relaxed ethos, the bespoke gown, the blue velvet bridesmaids, and most of all, the spirit of the bride herself. 

I’ve never met Hayley, but I have a feeling that I’d like her a lot.  Take it away my dear…

A Cracking Pair! A Real Engagement In Manchester – Ashley & Matthew

July 30th, 2013 | Julia Braime

I’m over in Cheshire this evening to help my friends and wedding industry colleagues Emma and Jonny Draper of Love Bridal Boutique celebrate their first year in business.  Hasn’t that flown by?  I first met the lovely couple at my last Brides Up North Tweet up North West back in June 2012 at the stunning Belle Époque in Knutsford, so it seems rather apt that that’s where today’s lovebirds – Ashley and Matthew – plan to tie the knot.

.

With a beautiful set of images by their photographer Cassandra Lane, let’s meet them and hear their love story.

Ashley says:  We got engaged on1st June 2012, Matt made my favourite meal at home and proposed in a candle lit living room, which was perfect for me as I don’t like a big fuss and large crowds would have intimidated me.  We are getting married at The Belle Époque, in Knutsford, Cheshire in August 2013.

We met at the most romantic of places… the office. We caught each other’s gaze over the staplers and filing cabinets. It was the archetypal Hollywood moment.

We went on a few many ‘first’ dates, I know that seems odd but as there was no label on the evening, each one held the same nervous and excited butterflies. But there are a few places that hold special memories for us, one in particular; at 5:30am in the morning after a night of dancing in a Manchester pub that will always bring a smile to our faces.

.

I knew that he was the one for me when we were sat on a hillside at a festival called Green Man. We were sharing a box of mashed potato and told each other at that moment that we loved one another.

.

.

.

.

Matthew is hilarious and a fantastic listener, he is so adventurous and incredibly friendly. He just makes me comfortable to be me and is very loving.

Matthew says:  Ashley is the most beautiful, caring and wonderful person I have ever met, that and she has a cracking pair of baps!

The engagement shoot was pretty fun and we would like to say that we have made a new friend along the path, which is what it is all about really!  it was wonderful to do it in the library.

Black & White & Red All Over: A Delectably Dark City Wedding At Malmaison Manchester: Laura & Simon

May 13th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Andy Wardle Photography

.

.

It was their way or the highway for Laura and Simon’s simple yet gorgeously gothic Real Wedding in Manchester city centre, with beautiful results.  With images by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Andy Wardle Photography this black and white and red all over wedding (organised in just four weeks!) is a little monochrome masterpiece.

Laura says: Simon asked me to marry him on my birthday at a little pub in Rowley near Matlock which is special to us and we tied the knot on 30th of August 2012.  The ceremony was at Manchester Town Hall and our reception was at Malmaison Manchester.

We didn’t want to get married in a church as neither of us are religious but we did want a bit of gothic grandeur so the Town Hall was the perfect place. We also spend a lot of time in Manchester so it was nice to have our wedding venue as somewhere we pass on a regular basis. We chose Malmaison for the reception because we love the bold style of the decor. We also wanted somewhere we could go back to on our anniversary – oh! and they had to make good non-alcoholic cocktails which was essential as I was five months pregnant!

We wanted laid back and intimate, city centre chic with an edge which Andy has captured beautifully in his photos. Neither of us wanted a big production, so we kept it simple and did everything ourselves. We built everything around us as a couple – the venues, the music, the guest list, the decorations – if it didn’t mean something to us it wasn’t part of our wedding.

I bought my dress online from a bridal shop in Kent, I wanted a Grecian style dress and I fell in love with the simplicity of this one.  Simon wore a Ted Baker suit.  We didn’t have bridesmaids or groomsmen as we wanted to keep things informal.

Andy Wardle Photography was our only supplier – it was important that we got a set of photographs that told the story of our day, with a style that we loved – Andy was the perfect choice.

.

We tried to do as much as possible ourselves because we wanted our wedding day to reflect us – we even dressed the rooms the night before the wedding ourselves.

Our special touch was to select and mix our own music – music is important to both of us so we spent a lot of time getting it just perfect.

.

We had three playlists – one for the ceremony, one for the meal and one for the party. We made the mixes from songs that meant something to us, it meant we had the perfect atmosphere and gave the guests something to laugh at when the more embarrassing selections got played.

We organised and had our wedding within four weeks of setting the date and got everything we wanted. We worked really hard and everything fell into place. The best thing about doing it this way was that there was no post wedding ‘come down’ as I think some people get, we were so happy to have pulled off our perfect day in such a short space of time!

Today’s Real Wedding is vibrant, bright and basically beautiful in every single way.  What a way to kick off the long weekend as we join Joanna and Tom for their Real Wedding in Cheshire.  With images by Andy Wardle Photography.

.

Glorious!

.

Have a very good one…

We chose the venue because of it’s stunning buildings and grounds. Adlington Hall is a very traditional and beautiful building and we knew immediately that we wanted to say our vows there. The Hunting Lodge is just next door and housed all of our guests perfectly. We were fortunate enough to be able to appreciate the gardens as well. It was the perfect venue.

We originally chose a “Peaches & Cream” colour scheme but our bridesmaid dresses were in more of a vibrant coral and we incorporated apricot, peach, coral and ivory colours into our flowers.

I wore a lace, vintage-style fitted wedding dress by Annasul Y from The White Closet, Didsbury.

I carried a bouquet of David Austin ‘Juliet’ roses, peonies and gypsohila handtied with lace and pearls. The men had David Austin roses and some eucalyptus as their buttonholes.  All our flowers were by Firenza Floral Design

We had a “Sweetie Table” that ran the length of the room in the Hunting Lodge, which included lots of homemade cakes & goodies baked by family members, old fashioned sweets and bowls of peaches & apricots to match our colour theme. It was thoroughly appreciated by our guests who tucked in right through the night.

Tom is in a band called ‘The Zetlands’ and they played a mixture of their own music and some covers selected by us. Lots of Elvis Presley, The Beatles, the Kinks, and general rock&roll to get everyone on the dancefloor.

.

Our only regret is not having a videographer, particularly for the ceremony. Andy managed to capture some fantastic shots that made up for it though, including the dance moves later on in the evening!

After the wedding we flew to Italy and spent a week relaxing in Sardinia followed by a city break in Venice.

Twinkle Toes: Glitter Choos For A Real Wedding At The Great John Street Hotel, Manchester – Becky & Graham

April 16th, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

(c) David Stubbs Photography

.

.

What do you get when you mix a beautiful boutique hotel, slick blue suits, boho bridal hair, a well thought out playlist and some to-die-for heels?  Well, Becky and Graham’s gorgeous city wedding in Manchester of course!

.

Major shoe lust. 

.

Becky says:  We got engaged in Mauritius in November 2012.  When Gra popped the question he really wanted to get married in 2012. There were six weeks left of that year… we looked into venues and there were places still available that we were very tempted by but unfortunately a close family member had to go for an emergency operation and the recovery was going to be a while so we waited until Christmas and booked our wedding for March 1st 2013.  We were very excited!

.

We are actually from Leicester but Gra works in Manchester and we both have friends here. We love the city & wanted a urban feel to our day and this ticked all the boxes. The Great John Street Hotel is honestly the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in. It’s an old school house that has been converted but it’s very boutique and truly luxurious. If you have never been its worth a stay or even just visit for afternoon tea or a  cheeky cocktail. It’s the definition of beautiful!

.

We wanted everything to be quite neutral and simple, and chose a colour scheme of cream, dusky pink and green.

I actually bought my dress from China, I had it made and shipped over. Then I had it tweaked at a local bridal shop.  My bridesmaids were all in Monsoon gowns, and Gra and the groomsmen wore suits by Reiss.   

.

Our amazing flowers were from David Wayman Flowers at Spinningfields. My bouquet was made up of cream hydrangeas, dusky pink roses and  spray roses – it was very simple and elegant.

We absolutely loved walking out of the ceremony and seeing everyone and the speeches were brilliant.

We had a moment where we both sat back and looked at all our guests and we felt so lucky to have them all with us on our special day. We were very overwhelmed.

.

We had brown envelopes with everyone’s names stamped on for place setting. Inside we did individual cards with a photo of each guest and wrote a special message inside.

.

We made CDs as favours.  They had all the music from our wedding day on them and had songs that remind us of all the special people involved in our wedding. We still get messages from people now saying they are listening to it in their car and reminds them of what a special day it was.

.

.

(c) David Stubbs Photography

.

.

During the day we used our iPod for music. Gra is a bit of a music fanatic and sorted it all out into sections: music for the service, reception drinks and meal – all mix of swing, jazz and update music, it was perfect.  In the evening we moved down into the oyster bar and had a live band.

Charlotte at Crafty Baker made our cake. It was amazing.  We had jars around the venue that we had decorated with vintage lace and dusky pink ribbon and Charlotte had incorporated this into the cake and it all matched perfectly. My bridesmaids had also had a beautiful cake knife engraved for us that they got from notonthehighstreet.com. 

.

.

.

.

We went to The Fairmont on The Palm Dubai for our honeymoon.  We only went for five nights because of work commitments but would’ve loved to have been there longer. We had a fabulous time. We went on a sand dune safari, cocktails at the Burj Al Arab (which was out of this world) and went up the Burj khalifa, and lots more adventures!  It was a special trip.

.

.

.

.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is don’t get stressed!  We planned our wedding in two months.  Make sure you get a great photographer/videographer to capture and remember your day.  I cannot recommend David Stubbs Photography enough!

Fabulous Photographer: Jonny Draper Photography

April 1st, 2013 | Julia Braime

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

Consider this little introduction to a guy that I consider to one of the best and most exciting wedding photographers in the business my Easter egg to you.  And yes, it’s the first of April, but this is no April fool!

.

When you book Brides Up North Featured Supplier Jonny Draper Photography for your wedding day, you know you’ll get a set of clever (yes clever!) and stunning images: full of beauty, emotion and also some humour – and therefore the best possible record of your big day.  High accolades, true, but I am wholly confident that Jonny’s work speaks for itself. 

.

Plus, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him in real life – at my North West Tweet Up – and anyone who likes a glass of wine as much as I do (previously unheard of) can’t be bad in my book.

.

Let’s meet Mr Draper…

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

How did you get into wedding photography?

.

I think like every other wedding photographer I know, I kind of fell into it!  To cut a very long story short, my ‘proper job’ used to be filming and editing viral films, corporate videos and adverts for a creative ad agency and one day somebody who I worked with asked me to film their wedding because "I filmed and edited stuff"!!!  I’d never even been to a wedding never mind filmed one, but I instantly fell in love with capturing the story of the day, being around people who were all there to have a great time and the adrenaline rush of knowing that you only got one chance at every part of the day.  That was over 10 years ago and I flipped over to stills around 5 years ago.

.

What is your favourite thing about being a wedding photographer?

.

Even now, having been involved in weddings for over 10 years, I still get nervous the day before each wedding.  Then in the morning as I’m getting ready to leave the house the excitement and anticipation starts to build and as soon as I arrive at the bride’s house the adrenaline rush starts that doesn’t let up until well after I get home – what an awesome feeling!  That, coupled with being given the opportunity to ‘do my thing’ week in, week out for brides and grooms who fall in love with weddings they’ve seen I’ve shot – what’s not to love?!

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

.

What is your biggest professional achievement to date?

.

I’m honoured to have won The Wedding Industry Awards – North West Wedding Photographer of the Year this year.  This finally feels like an awards body has arrived that is truly credible which made me even more delighted to have won.  The voting process begins by your brides and grooms who’s weddings you have photographed in the previous 12 months voting for you.  If you achieve above the average points total for your category you then get shortlisted.  I was stunned to even get shortlisted as I was up against some of the best wedding photographers in the UK in my opinion.  I was even more stunned when I found out I’d won!  The shortlist is judged by a panel of industry experts (again, this is where I felt the credibility really became obvious as these judges were all hugely well known and respected in the industry, so it was an honour to know that they were even discussing my work, never mind deciding that mine was the best!) and I’m still trying to get my head round receiving such an amazing accolade. 

.

How do you get couples to relax on the day?

.

I do a pre-wedding shoot for all my brides and grooms and this is where getting them to relax starts.  Giving them the opportunity to experience what it’s like to have their photograph taken professionally ahead of the day, so that they have a real understanding of what actually happens when the camera comes out the bag on the wedding day morning.  And it’s a great reassurance for them that I’m not going to have them doing anything daft or anything they’re uncomfortable with.  I also get to understand how they want to be photographed so that I’m approaching things in the right way for them on the day of their wedding.  And it’s brilliant just being able to spend a couple more hours with them ahead of their day so that I really get to know what they’re like, not just as a couple, but as individuals too.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

Any advice to any brides who don’t like to have their picture taken?

.

Again, one of the reason’s I do the pre-wedding shoot is to help brides and grooms get over that kind of feeling.  I honestly think that most people don’t like having their picture taking – in fact, I think I’d be worried if I met with couples and they said "We LOVE having our picture taken"!

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

.

.

Any really memorable weddings that you have captured?

.

There’s too many to list!  From weddings in New York, Tuscany, Santorini and France, through to weddings right on my door step in Manchester and Cheshire, every single one is special and different.  I’m so lucky to work with the kind of brides and grooms who I work with – everything is important to them, from the photography to the flowers, to the entertainment to the food, they’re never just ‘ticking things off a list’.  Every decision they make is a carefully considered one, which means they genuinely care about every single detail of their day.  Which includes the photography.  They book me because they love how I shoot and how I approach a wedding and that is a wonderful feeling to know that a couple have chosen you to capture their wedding because they want you to capture it your way.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

Are you married? Tell us about your day.

.

I am married, to my amazing wife Emma (who is also a Brides up North sponsor with our other wedding business, LOVE Bridal Boutique – shameless plug!)  We were married at The Inn at Whitewell in Lancashire in December 2007.  It was an amazing day and trying to keep focused on things photography related, it was one of the most amazing learning curves I’ve been on as a wedding photographer.  The rain was RELENTLESS all day.  In a torrential manner.  I learned two massive lessons.  Number One:  As the groom – did I care about the weather?  Did it ruin anything for me?  (And I can speak for Emma here too)  The answer is no.  We were surrounded by our friends and family in an amazing venue and we didn’t care about the weather.    Number Two:  As a photographer – did the weather ruin our pictures?  No.  We had an awesome husband and wife photographer team (Jonathan Harris Photography) who were calm, who helped us with umbrellas, who looked after our guests and who shot amazing photographs.  I learned more about how to handle bad weather in one day by being right in the middle of it myself and it’s really shaped the way I approach weddings.  Jonathan and Christine are my original photography mentors and Emma and I are very lucky to be able to call them our friends now too.

Go on then Jonny, tell us about LOVE Bridal Boutique

.

Emma and I also own Cheshire’s most exclusive bridal experience – LOVE Bridal Boutique.  We opened the doors in August 2012 and it’s been an amazing experience so far – Emma and I already have a growing number of mutual brides, they love that they’re getting a service from a family owned and run business and we’re loving working with them!  

.

.

What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?

.

I’d like to think the overall approach to how I work with my brides and grooms is unique.  From where I meet them to chat about their day, to how we work together through the pre-wedding shoot and in the overall build up to the day onto the wedding day itself.  I don’t worry about what other photographers offer, I only want to know about what my brides and grooms want from me and how best I can fit into their day.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

.

.

What can a couple who book you expect on the day?

.

They can expect to spend lots of time with their friends and family.  I hate the idea of dragging a bride and groom away from the party for hours on end and if I let them get stuck into their drinks reception and give them the chance to actually spend time with people, then I get the opportunity to shoot all those wonderful moments between people.  Excited faces, hugs and kisses, tears and laughter – this is what my brides and grooms want to see photographs of.  Of course, we’ll shoot the all important family group photographs that they require, but I like to fit these into the day when it feels right to do so, rather than worry about doing them all at a certain time.  This helps us avoid a formal feeling to the proceedings (I hate the idea of being that photographer who stands on a chair and shouts names off of a list!  There’s ways of approaching group shots without having to be interruptive and invasive and I work really hard at ensuring everything feels relaxed, not just for the bride and groom, but for all their guests too.

.

.

Jonny Draper Photography

.

.

What is included in your "package"?

.

My attendance starts at whatever time in the morning the bride wants me to arrive and I shoot right through until after the first dance.  This enables me to really tell the story of the day with no compromises.

.
The attendance fee includes a disc of hi-res images with permission to print/distribute.  I also include lo-res versions to make it easy to email/Facebook etc!  I also supply all of the shots from the day on a DVD slideshow set to music of the bride and grooms choosing – this is a great way to show friends/family the story of your day without always having to carry an album around!  The attendance fee including all of the above is £1,995.

.
I also include a pre-wedding shoot for all my wedding clients which is so useful for so many reasons.  It’s great for my brides and grooms to spend a bit more time with me ahead of their big day and vice versa – it really gives us all a chance to get to know each other better which is so helpful on the wedding day – I know what they’re comfortable with, they’ve gone through the nerves of having their photograph taken before their day so those kinds of worries aren’t there – and it’s a good excuse to go for a beer afterwards!
