The first wedding of the year is always special; after the holidays and lots of marketing it’s always great to get back to doing what I love the most; photographing weddings!

The first wedding of 2013 was just fantastic and I loved it so much, so much so I seem to have chosen 170 wedding photographs. Sorry.

Claire & Martin are one of those unfortunate couples that have looks, great jobs, a relationship to envy and live in Australia. Because of their commute we didn’t meet until a few weeks before the big day. I knew then I was going to be really excited about their wedding; and I wasn’t mistaken….hence the 170 photos.

OK; to the wedding; I observed the ceremony from a balcony at the rear of the church, with the lack of a central aisle I thought it best to shoot from high so I can capture the action. Whilst the happy couple signed the register Martin’s Dad and friend sang Heatbeat by Jose Gonzales; brilliantly might I add.

A short drive to the Hillbark Hotel on the Wirral followed.  I left Claire & Martin to mingle with their friends for a while as they get to see them so seldom; but as the sun was setting I had to tear them away for some shots in what was the most amazing winter light.

I’ll let the photos do the rest of the story telling, as usual a comment or two is always welcome.

Enjoy 🙂
