English autumn wedding

A favourite photograph of Liz and Jon, so much in love.

A favourite photograph of Liz and Jon, so much in love.

The first engagement shoot I ever featured on English Wedding was of Liz and Jon – a Cheshire bride- and groom-to-be whose lovely photos had me completely hooked.

Two months have absolutely flown by, and I can now very happily blog Liz and Jon’s wedding day for you. This couple wear their hearts on their sleeves – so the photos might just bring a tear to your eye. They did for me!

Their photographer was Adam from ARJ Photography in Manchester. There is definitely something special about Manchester wedding photographers and Adam is no exception: a creatively cheeky element always comes shining through – in Liz and Jon’s case, it’s bathtubs!

I don’t know if the location was chosen especially, or if it’s just that I love Liz’s hair colour so much – but the red sandstone and Liz’s auburn locks just look Amazing! (I typed the capital A on Amazing by accident… but it fits!)

Jon's as cool as can be!

Oddfellows is a 17th century Georgian manor house in the heart of Chester. The venue prides itself on its mixture of quirky character and sophistication – and I love what I see here!

Congratulations to Liz and Jon – I’ve enjoyed every one of your wedding pictures, I adore your look and your personalities really come through these images – I’ve loved every one!

Thanks to Adam from ARJ Photography in Manchester. I wish I could keep up with his work – since getting this gorgeous set of images in my inbox I’ve seen so many more on his wedding photography blog (worth a visit) and on the ARJ-Photo facebook page (worth another visit!) … if only I had six hands I’d blog them all!

    Wow – what amazing photos and I love seeing auburn brides, they always get overlooked in the mainstream media 🙂 And you’re right – the sandstone and her hair really bring out the warmth of the ruin shots. And the bathtubs! Congratulations to a fabulous couple and well done Adam for great pics xxx

    Thanks Claire! You’re too nice. I love the fact you label my style as ‘creatively cheeky’! I might use that!
    I also love the words you’ve put around Liz and Jon’s photos – their wedding was a pleasure to be involved in before, during and since.
    The band are Xander and the Peace Pirates (best band name ever, or what?) and they were amazing. I’d recommend them to anybody.
