Arley Hall Wedding Show

As well as exhibiting at Arley Hall Wedding show on Sunday Andrew John wedding photography Manchester, I decided to take the opportunity to deliver some framed portraits to a couple of my clients.

I enjoyed delivering their portraits as it enabled me to see the finished portraits in situ. My first call on the way to Arley Hall was to the famous Knotty Ash’ area of Liverpool. My Clients house had a minimal/contemporary style and the Black Edge Box Frames looked fantastic. My second visit which I fitted in on the way back from the Wedding Show involved a short trip to Wilmslow. The classic brushed gold frames with mount sat perfectly in its modern/traditional surroundings. Even If I do say so myself, they both looked really good hanging in their respective positions. My clients had chosen well.

The Wedding show itself was held at the Magnificent National Trust property Arley Hall and Gardens. Which has been in the Ashbrook family since the 15 Century. What a fantastic venue for a wedding. The intimate show was for invited couples who had expressed an interest in holding their Wedding at Arley Hall. They were shown around the venue and then chatted with Arley Halls recommended wedding suppliers like myself. So it wasn’t all hustle and bustle like the major shows can be, there was a more relaxed atmosphere. I had plenty of time to chat with couples about their special day. I even found time to chat to Lord Ashbrook about photography, he said he enjoyed taking photographs of the Award Winning gardens around the estate. He is a big fan of black and white photography as he feels it is more like ‘art’. I have to say I agree with him. We also chatted about how Wedding Photography has changed over the years and the modern ‘reportage style’ intrigued him. He was amazed that I usually capture more than a 1000 photographs at each wedding I shoot, but as I explained, I can be there for anywhere up to ten hours, taking photographs of everything from the smallest of details to arranging a large group shot of up to 200 guests. Not to mention the Bridal Fashion Shoot, Traditional Family Portraits, Speeches, First Dance and everything in-between !!

Overall a very productive and enjoyable day.
