A Beautiful Wedding in Bury
Many of you lovely readers will have heard me wax lyrical numerous times about how we love what we do. Samantha and Marks church wedding in Bury typifies what I’m taking about. Their day was just so incredible and full of emotion. Its fair to say we had so much going on and the whole day kept our crew on their toes. The day started nice and early at Samantha and Marks home where we shot the getting ready bits. It was great to see Mark had sent Sam some flowers with a very moving message, and it tugged on the heart strings when Sam read it. That contrasted with Marks ‘getting ready’ where he literally was moved to tears when he read Sams note to him, it was such a great moment. I think sometimes its easy to become engrossed in capturing moments like these. Often its the small things that really display the love between two people or the closeness of a family. It was great to witness this first hand and clearly Sam & Mark have a very tight bond with their friends and family.
On to the Church for the Wedding Ceremony
The couple were married at Christ Church in Bury. Christ Church is a fine example of the Victorian Gothic Revival style. The church houses a number of very fine stained glass windows produced by the celebrated William Pape of Leeds. The support of English Heritage and a great deal of work by members of the congregation have allowed restoration work in recent years and it looks beautiful. It was nice to Tsee that Sam & Mark had booked a gospel choir to sing as she walked down the aisle which was so cool. They also performed throughout the day as the wedding guests enjoyed the reception.
Wedding reception and speeches
After the wedding in Bury the reception was held in a beautiful marquee in the families garden. It was a very relaxed affair and the nice weather allowed the guests to mingle outside while photographs were taken. The reception room looked incredible with the top table decorated with an abundance of flowers and candles. All in all a great setting for the evening ahead. After the speeches the room was extended to reveal the dance floor and the entertainment followed the first dance. What a great way to finish off.
We really enjoyed filming Sam & Marks wedding in Bury and it was great working with Lesley Meredith Photography again and also a huge thanks to Media Town for the aerial footage. Please feel free to hit ‘share the love’ or comment below.
