Debbie and Jonathan’s wedding at Chevin Country Park Hotel

This is what love looks like. This wedding really needs no other explanation and I hope my photography has captured the incredible passion Debbie and Jon have for each other. Like so many people at the moment, they had to scale back their wedding plans when they realised they just couldn’t afford the big lavish event they’d dreamed of. So they had a small intimate civil ceremony with a handful of close family and friends in the Garden Room at Chevin Country Park Hotel followed by an emotional and personal blessing outside on the deck overlooking the lake. Their photography was important to them and they were brilliant to shoot. We walked around the lake after the ceremony and then went out again as the sun went down to make the most of the gorgeous light. Considering everything was done without a vast amount of money, the details, the flowers (from The Willow Garden in Hebden Bridge) and even the weather came together beautifully. But really it was all about the love.  Debbie borrowed her mum’s old wedding shoes and had an old penny taped inside one of them…

The Chevin Country Park Hotel has a spa as well. There weren’t many people around that day (it was a Monday – great day to get married!) but those there were added to the holiday atmosphere…

Now I’m not very good on my bird species but this was a big bird-of-prey type creature. A kestrel maybe? I took four shots of it as it graced us with a fly-by, all with my lens still at f1.8 (this is for the photographers reading this, tune out if you’re not interested). Every one was pin-sharp. Not sure how I managed that but it made me smile.
