Recently I had the utter privilege of hanging out with a group of my photography friends, taking photos of beautiful wedding dresses and accessories, at the lovely North West wedding venue Styal Lodge for the grand opening of a gorgeous & very exclusive wedding boutique in Altrincham, Love Bridal Boutique. This wonderful boutique has been incredibly well put together by Jonny and Emma Draper who, between them have years of experience in the wedding industry so knew early on what they wanted to present to their brides.
Love Bridal boutique now boasts wedding dresses, flowers and accessories from some of the best in the industry; Vivien Sheriff, Charlotte Balbier & Amanda Wyatt, Terry Fox, Halo & Co, Intuzuri, Alan Hannah & Harriet Wilde. It was a great time to get together and produce some images that would soon appear on the pages of the wonderful wedding blog English Wedding Blog, dreamed up and hosted by the lovely Claire Gould. She was to blog and advertise the upcoming opening, and just happened to say some wonderful things about our gang...'the best in the North West' Thanks Claire!!
I hope you enjoy some of the images below I took on the day, these weren't professional models so it felt a little like how we would encourage our brides to pose on the day...they were lovely girls to hang out with!

|I think someone had had enough of being photographed!!!|
|I love these delicate shoes...they even have little diamonds at the back, I think they'd look great with a pair of jeans after the wedding too!|
I couldn't choose between black & white and colour so I thought I'd let you and include all my favourite images in both!
After going to the launch of Love Bridal Boutique in Altrincham, Cheshire, I fully believe Emma & Jonny know exactly what their brides need; from the first trying on of a stunning designer dress, being given the whole middle floor of their boutique to try it on, standing in front of huge, girlie, luxurious mirrors, to the chat about what they want their wedding day to be like, to the unveiling of a beautiful set of images taken by Jonny which captures your day perfectly...these two know how to give you the best you could ever wish for!
