Pre Wedding Shoot in Southport

Pre Wedding Shoot  – Ruth & Ben

Church – St Helen’s Church in Tarporley

Venue – Peckforton Castle

Andrew John wedding photographers Southport had a great time with Ruth and Ben last Saturday. They are getting married on the 5th May. So I arranged to meet up with them for a pre-wedding chat and photo shoot at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Southport on the Promenade. We chatted over coffee about their big day and how they would like it to go. They’re getting married at the beautiful St Helen’s Church in Tarporley, Cheshire, and then on to the imposing Peckforton Castle – What a superb venue for photography. While we chatted the sun was shining across the Marine Lake; it was a perfect day to take photographs.

Ruth and Ben have decide to use their pre-wedding shoot for a signed image on their Wedding day. By the time we got outside to take the photographs would you believe it, yes, it had started to rain and got quite windy too, typical!!  We made our way around the side of the Hotel and passed by the Waterfront Gallery. We went in to get out of the rain rather than wait for it to stop. I thought it would be a good idea to use the Gallery as a backdrop for some ‘arty style photos’. I think we got some interesting shots. When we managed to escape the two elderly female artists who proudly showed us their work, it had stopped raining – British weather ah! We strolled down the pier taking  photos as we walked. I think Ruth and Ben photographed really well, once they got over their initial embarrassment. I am looking forward to their big day and will post some photographs soon after.
