Etrop Grange Hotel Wedding | Manchester
by Manchester wedding photographer Paul Baybut
Very excited to blog the wedding of Manchester bride and groom Mandy and Stu. This was my first wedding at their superb venue Etrop Grange. A Georgian mansion hotel set just a mile or so away from Manchester airport, with it's splendid period decor and conveniently situated just minutes from their home in Cheshire, everything was set for a perfect wedding day. This was a lovely sunny day in June on a Wednesday in an otherwise week full of rain.
First of all though the day started off quite early at Mandy's home for her bridal preparations and some lovely family portraits of the baby and children. Mandy was full of laughs especially when I almost fell from her bed that I was standing on in order to get an arty angle on her morning portrait by the window, how was I to know that the bed was on wheels, ha ha. Safely with both feet now firmly on the carpet, I then photographed all of the brides detail shots on the same wheeled bed using a few fancy tricks to showcase Mandy's quirky personlised converse trainers and wedding jewellery then from there it was off to Etrop Grange hotel to meet Stu and his best man.
Previous to the wedding day itself I had been in frequent contact with Stu who had been organising the wedding photography for several months as he had been following my photography on facebook for quite a while and it felt like were were old friends by the time I eventually came around to meeting him in his hotel room that day. Stu was mildly nervous with excitement at the day ahead but everything went so quickly and smoothly everybody was full of smiles and laughter by the time I had finished. An amazing day, great wedding and a ceremony although only 15 minutes or so in duration was an absolute pleasure to photograph with so much natural and loving emotions pouring out in abundance from this wonderful couple. Huge congratulations with many thanks to Stu and Mandy.
