At the start of last year, I photographed the beautiful wedding of Jules & Dan. On that day I met Jonathan & Kurt and after letting me know their wedding day was happening the following year, I gave them my business card and carried on snapping away. Skip forward to February of this year and there I was being their Cowley Manor Wedding Photographer and what a cool day we all had.

I arrived early at Cowley Manor to cover the morning preparations which was a little different from usual as Jonathan & Kurt had decided to get ready together. I get that spending the morning apart and seeing each other for the first time at the end of an aisle adds to the excitement of the day however, I have to admit there’s something really special about a couple helping each other prepare for the biggest day of their lives.

As it was February and the daylight hours would be short, Jonathan & Kurt decided to do all the family group photos and their portrait photos before the ceremony. This is a great call for people having winter weddings but still wanting to get some cool shots in before the light fades. We explored the beautiful grounds of Cowley Manor and came back with some kickass pictures…and frozen fingers and toes 🙂

The rest of the day carried on as you would expect, A beautiful ceremony, drinks, laughter and all-around weddingy goodness. The speeches were an absolute delight and at one point they had half the room (and me) nearly in tears. The evening kicked off with a DJ/Saxofonist combo that got the dance floor heaving and it pretty much stayed that way all night.

Jonathan & Kurt were absolutely amazing to be around and capturing their wedding day was an honour. Thank you so much for having me guys. Cowley Manor itself was such a cool venue. From the outside It sits within amazing picturesque grounds and looks extremely grand. On the inside it is all cool, hip and modern. It’s hard to explain so hopefully the pictures will help 🙂

Once again I worked alongside the awesome Blue Ridge Wedding Videographers for this wedding. Great guys, check them out.
