Leez Priory Wedding
This Leez Priory Wedding was so special. Not least that it was such a beautiful day and in such a great location. Leez Priory’s magnificent Tudor mansion is quite simply outstanding. Set in 40 acres of parkland, with lakes, lawns and a sweeping driveway, this place has it all. I was so happy that Emma & Tony had decided to have the wedding ceremony outside. It was a scorching day and seeing all the guests in their summery outfits was a nice contrast to some of the winter weddings we have shot.
I think its fair to say that moments of high emotion affect people differently and its quite common to see the Bride or Groom tear up during the ceremony. Its slightly less common to see one of them burst into fits of laughter but never the less its does happen. The strange thing is that its usually couples that think they will be in tears on their wedding day. Then when the moment comes and someone whispers “don’t cry” just before the vows, anything can happen. I have to confess to joining in with the laughter it was a great moment and totally unexpected.
On with the Wedding Celebrations
There was such a lot going on at Emma & Tony’s wedding and it was clear to see they had taken great care to plan the day meticulously. From the outdoor ceremony to the fireworks in the evening. I was really impressed that Emma had decided to throw her bouquet away. Well not literally, but certainly a bouquet toss which is always great fun. It never ceases to amaze me how competitive the ladies can be when rugby tackling each other for the flowers!!
The end of a long day
After filming all day in the heat we headed back to Manchester with some great memories of this lovely wedding and still buzzing from the footage we captured. I hope we venture to Leez Priory again in the future, we thoroughly enjoyed working here and also hearing Emma & Tony’s own love story.
