Wedding photographer at The last drop village hotel
It was a pleasure to be Danielle and Danny’s wedding photographer at The Last Drop Village hotel and document their wedding, which had an Super Hero theme.
It was a short drive to Bolton in Greater Manchester, to the wedding venue, The Last Drop Village Spa hotel, located on the edge of the West Pennine Moors over looking Bolton. The hotel was given its name after the last drop of wine was drunk at the celebration of its completion in 1964. Here, the Penny Farthing Suite, was the location for the transformation of the engaged couple, into the next wedded double act… Mrs Bride & Mr Groom, in real life Danielle and Danny!
I joined the award winning photographer, David Stubbs, to capture the bridal preparations and marriage ceremony. Later, with hundreds of images captured, the wedding shoot culminated in Danielle and Danny cutting the very unusual four tier super hero wedding cake, and their first dance as man and wife.
Unposed documentary photography at Last drop Village
Documentary wedding photography at Last drop village unposed & Documentary style. Danielle began her bridal preparations in one of the wings of the Last Drop Village hotel. She was joined by her two bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride. The brides hair and make up were being done by make up artists Flossy & Leigh.
To everyones delight, Danielle’s wedding shoes were not the traditional wedding slipper, they had amazing super hero pictures on them. It was the first time I had taken photos of this type of wedding slipper! More often it would be Jimmy Choo bridal slippers, but no convention here, for our beautiful blushing bride today, so full of fun! Although, these colourful wedding slippers were discreetly covered by Danielle’s elegantly flowing white wedding gown.
Following a memorable wedding ceremony, and once the wedding register was formally signed, and the couple had the marridge certificate in hand.The Penny Farthing Suite at the Last Drop Village was transformed. The tables themed with different Marvel super hero characters, ready for the wedding breakfast, with favours for the guests. Each table a spectacular image in itself, great to photograph.
I took lots of vibrant photos, unobtrusively, in documentary style, with no stopping or posing. Just observing, with the aim of capturing natural imagery, that can be remembered long after the wedding guests have left the Last Drop Village. One frame, particularly memorable, captured to the camera’s memory card, a young Usher, who truly was in the role… he was indeed a wedding super hero too, and loving every minute! My camera and lens was there to capture it all.
Evening light at Last Drop village Bolton for unposed natural wedding photography
In the evening light, Danielle was whisked away by her super hero husband. They walked together, hand in hand, through the grounds of the Last Drop Village, whilst the sun went down over the West Pennine Moors, over looking Bolton, Manchester. A photographic dream location, in fantastic light, to shoot natural, relaxed photos, no posing or need to interrupt. I followed discreetly, as Danielle and Danny walked, capturing lots of natural images of the newlyweds together.
As the celebrations continued, I got a fantastic shot of Danielle, a bride full of fun, tossing her wedding bouquet up in the air towards her bridesmaids; a great moment, captured, to be enjoyed again…and again. The evening reception continued late into the night with a live band. Many Congratulations to Danielle & Danny.
