Rebecca & Andy

Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Hughes!  Rebecca & Andy married on Saturday, 23 June 2012.

I attended the wedding rehearsal the Wednesday before the wedding and the weather was beautiful, the day before the wedding there were weather warnings for the North West, roads were flooded everywhere.  This didn’t bode well for Rebecca and Andy’s big day!  I think I checked the weather reports on the hour every hour until I was due to leave for the church on the morning of the wedding!

I arrived at St James Church, Orrell an hour before the service was due to start, Father Gerry gave me a very warm welcome and showed me where I could get the best vantage points during the service.

Andy, Craig (bestman) and Ben (Usher) arrived at midday, I took photographs of them and then left them to start greeting friends and family.  The sky still looked very menacing but fortunately the rain held off.

Next to arrive were the six bridesmaids, Sue (Rebecca’s mum) and little Louie the pageboy.

Rebecca arrived in style with her Dad Shaun at 12.55pm, she looked absolutely beautiful.  Still the rain held off so we were able to get a couple of photographs before Rebecca went into church.

The service was lovely and readings were given by friends and family.

After the ceremony I was able to take photographs in the grounds of the church before all guests made their way to the Holiday Inn, Haydock for the wedding breakfast.  Rebecca & Andy stayed at the church for a few more photographs, just as they were about to get into their car the heavens opened!

It wasn’t a long drive to the venue and very luckily when we arrived the rain had stopped again, so there was chance for a few more photos outdoors.

The room looked beautiful, Rebecca had themed the tables on sweets (yum!)  There was a marshmallow tree as the centre piece on each table and guests had an organza bag full of sweets for their favours, the wedding cake was fab too, 7 tiers of cupcakes and the top tier a cake with a caricature of Rebecca & Andy and their 4 dogs (fantastic!).

I really enjoyed taking Rebecca & Andy’s wedding photographs, the day was perfect and I couldn’t believe how lucky we were with the weather!
