Lowry hotel, Manchester wedding of Nick & Esther Gamble.

I recently blogged Nick and Esther's pre-wedding shoot and after hearing their ideas, was so looking forward to this wedding...it certainly didn't disappoint! I turned up to find Esther surrounded by make up and having her already beautifully long curly hair, set into the most perfect wedding waves by the fun, bubbly Phoebe who has her own bridal make-up company 'Flossy and Leigh'
The day was just perfect, everything ran smoothly and the food was delicious, venue dressed to perfection, speeches had that lovely balance of fun and tears, and the bride & groom thoroughly enjoyed themselves...which is the most important part of the day! 

I was joined by the amazing assistant and photographer, Hannah Beatrice, who took some wonderful photos through the day...in fact, some of my favourite as she captured moments I didn't always see or from places I was unable to be! Thank-you Hannah :D

Here are some images from that day and I think you'll agree Esther really does look stunning!

I love this photo taken by Hannah as I was organising more formal shots..it really sums up the day for me, the happiness, electricity and love between these two was so obvious!

Slattery wedding cakes never fail to impress me!

A fabulous, fun time was had by all!! 

Thank-you so much Nick & Esther for having me take your wedding photos, it really was a lovely day!
