I have known Rachel for a few years now as she was a bridesmaid at another one of my weddings. She was the smiliest and warmest person ever and I thought she would be my ideal bride if she was to get married. Fast forward just over a year later and I was over the moon that she told me that Phil had proposed and they wanted me to photograph their wedding day at the incredible One Fine Day in Liverpool City Centre. I have photographed a good few weddings at their sister venue Oh Me Oh My (you can have a look at those here) so knew that One Fine Day was going to be an amazing venue for their special day.
Rachel and Phil’s wedding was a really family affair including the star guest, their gorgeous little boy Albie. I think this was the first wedding where a prized teddy has a matching suit to its owner!
As they had chosen to have an autumn wedding Rachel really wanted to show this in their photographs. so we popped to Calderstones Park after their ceremony to take some of their wedding portraits before we headed off to One Fine Day for the mother of all parties. My word, do these guys know how to party!!!
Phil had always wanted a ukelele and so Rachel’s Mum bought him one as a surprise wedding gift. Rachel then went one step further and arranged for a ukulele band to come and play. Phil was completely oblivious, even when they were setting up right next to him! He found his inner rock star and was beside himself when, as another surprise they had arranged to play his favourite song, “We Didn’t Start the Fire”, which is no easy task on a ukulele!
Thank you SO much for welcoming me into your wedding day, I had an absolute ball with you and thank you even more for your wonderful feedback!
“Oh Rachel, you are just the best! Not only capturing moments perfectly but just as a person. Just perfect to share your wedding day with. I don’t know how people get married without you!”
