The Mere Wedding Photography – Hayley & Chris

The Mere Wedding Photography

This was a stunning day for wedding photography at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa in Knutsford. Hayley was busy getting ready in the bridal suite when I arrived whilst Chris was welcoming guests. I went to meet Hayley in the bridal suite, who was having her hair done by the award winning Flossy & Leigh bridal makeup and hair team. Everything was really calm and cool (not always the case) in the room and Hayley looked radiant with just that little hint of nervousness that come from getting married. I stayed with them right through preps up until she got into her dress, at which point I stepped out and came back in for the lacing up. Before long, it was almost time for the ceremony and the registrars come to say hello before I headed off to wait in the ceremony room.

The ceremony was fantastic and the room was perfect for my style of photography. The front of the room has big windows that let in loads of natural light which naturally falls off towards the back of the room. This creates beautiful focus on the bride and groom as you will see from the photograph below. After the ceremony has finished, we headed outside where Chris had surprised Hayley with 2 caged Doves which they released. The weather was stunning so I took Hayley & Chris around the resort for some photographs by the lake whilst their guests enjoyed the bar and the sunshine.

The speeches took place before the wedding breakfast. First to speak was the father of the bride, followed by the groom and finally the best man. It’s often the other way round, wedding breakfast first, then the speeches but this was a really nice alternative. I think that it has the advantage of those people who are doing the speeches can get it our the way and relax before the meal instead of rehearsing to themselves all the way through the meal, something I see a lot. Following the wedding breakfast, The Mere staff turned the room around and the nights entertainment, non other than the award winning Andy Murphy arrived to setup.

The first dance was really romantic, Hayley & Chris looked lovely together and it is obvious how close they are from when you first meet them. This wedding at The Mere really captured their relationship and the all star lineup of vendors really helped bring this wedding together. A huge thanks to all the staff at The Mere and a huge congratulations to Hayley & Chris who will undoubtably be very happy together for the rest of their lives.
