Ribble Valley & Lancashire Wedding and Family Photographer.
In May 2018, Katie contacted me. She wanted to meet up and discuss her up coming wedding. We met for a coffee in Costa in Haslingden, Lancashire. She told me how she had met her husband to be, Taib whilst on holiday in Agadir. He worked at the hotel she was staying at. The couple hit it off straight away. After that holiday, they were in constant communication and Katie went back for many more holidays. She went out for Taib’s birthday and he proposed to her! Wow! Her family were slightly concerned at first, so they went out to meet him. It seems they fell in love with Taib straight away too and thought the pair were perfect for each other.
I am a Lancashire based wedding photographer. Katie and Taib were getting married in Cheshire. I didn’t mind though as I cover Cheshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Manchester etc anyway.
Christmas was now over and it was time to get married! I met Katie, her bridesmaids and her parents at Cheadle House. She had stayed over the previous night. Bridal preparation was well underway. Everyone was so excited. Katie wouldn’t stop talking (I am allowed to say that, she knows she talks a lot).
Taib had now arrived. He was equally excited! He was enjoying a chat with the guests whilst Katie finished getting ready.
The bride and groom became husband and wife after having a civil ceremony at the hotel. True to Katie, the first thing she did was pose for a selfie with her new husband!
It was a bitter cold day. So I made sure I was quick with group shots and couples portraits. Taib was loving that part. He couldn’t stop kissing his new wife. I didn’t even have to prompt him!
I stayed with them through the wedding breakfast, cake cutting and first dance. Do you know what? This family were so lovely. Every single one of them made me feel so welcome. Thank you all so much!
