SEE ALL ALISTAIR & CLAIRE’S WEDDING PICTURES ON-LINE HERE
I often think I have the best job in the world and its weddings like this that make me certain of that fact. A wedding is only as good as the people who are there and sometimes everything just clicks into place and you can tell its going to be a cracker of a day. Again the weather wasn’t reliable and there were times where I thought we were going to spend the day inside. This would have been a shame as Alistair and Claire has the lovely St Annes Church Tottington and then the stunning Stanley House Hotel in Mellor for their wedding.
As soon as I arrived at the St Anne’s, Tottington it was nice to see the friendly faces of previous bride and grooms at the wedding (even if one is starting to feel a bit like a stalker now :-), only kidding – keep up the recommendations Sharon !!). the group of guys Alistar had chosen for his best man and ushers were fantastic and the fun we had really helped keep the nerves at bay im sure.
As Claire arrived the sun broke through and the service went without a hitch (As usual at St Annes). After the service we all went into the gardens opposite and did the family pictures etc. The atmosphere of the whole wedding was electric and it was great that the weather was behaving and giving us chance to take as much as we could.
We all then made our way to Stanley House Hotel in Mellor for the wedding breakfast. As I walked through the bar area I was greeted with a stupendous sight – PICK AND MIX !!!! yes pick and mix at the wedding, huge bowls of licorice torpedoes and bonbons, Happy days !!! I hurriedly completed the pictures before the guests could devour all the sweets and then grabbed a bag for myself. I’m happy to report that the bag is still in my car and still isn’t finished yet !!!!
Its weddings like this that remind me how lucky I am to be able to be part of peoples most special of days. Thanks Alistair and Clair it was an honour !!!
Hope you like the pics and have a great time in Thailand – see you soon.
