We are so pleased to feature the stunning wedding of Gemma and Paul, who got married in the beautiful location of Styal lodge in Cheshire. Their stunning day was captured by Manchester based wedding photographers Joanne & John who make up Elbowroom Photography.
We spoke to Joanne the photographer to find out about they day, “Gemma & Paul got married at Styal Lodge in Cheshire which is a purpose build barn that specialises in weddings & parties. It’s lovely natural light and outside space is perfect weddings. Gemma & Paul love animals and instead of favours on the tables they donated the money to the RSPCA and everyone received a personalised card and badge to show their donation which was a lovely idea. Gemma looked stunning in her lace gown and the bridesmaids and groomsmen in navy which looked stunning against the green backdrop of the gardens.”
“They both wanted the wedding to look natural and be in keeping with the venue, her flowers were subtle and looked beautiful. They were all about fun and as the drinks flowed they got more daring with their photos… After the traditional family photos and their portraits they got all their friends outside for some fun and games and Gemma wasn’t scared of being thrown in the air by her friends. Their wedding as all about family so we set up a space outside the venue and asked all their friends and family out for photos.. Everyone loved the idea of having a keep sake of their own and a shot of everyone was taken.”
When we asked Joanne what she loved about the day, she said: “Gemma looked absolutely stunning and they were so much fun to work with, really getting into having some fun shots with their friends and not taking themselves to seriously really helped them relax and let us have some fun.”
How would you describe your photography style?
“Our style of photography is natural, we limit posing to a minimum and shoot as things happen naturally. We love bright and light images so it’s important during our editing process that all the images flow and are consistent, matching skin tones and colours is really important in our style as we want all the images to match and flow.”
