Last year I had a second shooter opportunity to assist the lovely Carrie Jackson for a wedding taking place in Liverpool. Albeit a little way from home travelling to second shoot but I didn’t want to miss out on this lovely wedding as for one I’ve never visited the Albert Docks. I have been fortunate to have visited Anfield a few times though.
The morning started early with a 7.00am leave time for me to arrive for early bridal preparations at Liverpool beauty salon Peaches and Cream.
Once hair and make up was done, I dropped off main photographer, Carrie with bride Sarah at the Hilton Hotel, Albert Docks. I then went off to meet groom Daniel to finish off the groom preparations and grab some images of the groomsmen already to leave before they were to arrive at the church. Loved the little pet dog who had been put away in their crate so as not to get in the way of the hustle and bustle of all the guys getting ready. Once that was done it was off to the church. There I took plenty of candids, the bride arriving – just loved her dress, just beautiful then ceremony photos from the balcony!
The wedding ceremony was taking place at Our Lady & St Nicholas Church, Chapel Street, Liverpool. Just under a mile or so from where the reception would take place at the Hilton Hotel. I’m just glad I had assistance finding parking as I’m not frequent visitor to Liverpool so don’t really know the city that well. It was a great wedding. Guests were entertained with Singing Father and Daughter waiters, a surprise to for the guests. The best man’s speech highlighted the fact the groom was not a rapper in his youth despite his best efforts. All in all despite being a tad breezy, it was a great wedding to be a part of and document it from a second shooter perspective. The guys definitely loved being in front of the camera – mischievous smiles and antics that just had to be photographed!
