Another wonderful Cheshire wedding—this time, to celebrate the marriage of Rachelle and Simon. The St James and St Pauls church – a stunning Tudor chapel, originally founded in 1343 – was the venue: covered in pink and white roses, this wedding was sunny inside and out, with the rare gift of clear blue April skies. Rachelle looked like a princess in her beautiful dress, and left her guests speechless.

After the ceremony, the guests were transported to the reception at Sandhole Oak Barn, in a vintage bus. It was a quirky touch, capturing this couple’s kooky, creative spirit. Situated in 400 acres of lush countryside, and perched on the brim of a sparkling lake, the Barn was the perfect setting for a romantic twilight stroll with the happy couple. What’s more, it was the perfect place for a party!

After the moving speeches, I witnessed my first choreographed dance routine—set to Christina Perri’s wonderful ‘A Thousand Years’, the happy couple put hours of hard work to good use, to the delight of their guests. DJ extraordinaire Andy Murphy kept up the momentum after that, and I had the pleasure of working with videographer John Boy Wilson—another happy first.

Thanks to Rachelle and Simon for allowing me to be part of their day. And thanks to whoever was in charge of the weather—it was a beautiful sunny wedding, and not before time!
