Donna and Martin at Mottram Hall

Mottram Hall Wedding

Donna and Martin Wedding Portrait Stephen McGowan Photography

Donna and Martin's Mottram Hall wedding was brilliant to be a part of, we absolutely loved being a part of their special day! From the moment we met up with the two of them we just knew that we'd get on like the proverbial 'house on fire' and that's exactly how it went down :-)

We know Donna personally as she's a cousin of Emma's, so we were delighted when she asked if we'd shoot her wedding for her. Donna had an 'entourage' of bridal party members in her room for preparations - bridesmaids, flowergirls, mum, hairstylists - the works! - so it was fairly 'all systems go' when we arrived to the Mottram Hall bridal suite in the morning.

The ceremony room was gorgeously decorated and prepared by 'Lasting Memories' on the day and Donna looked absolutely stunning in her Mori Lee dress. A real moment of the day was Donna's dad walking arm in arm with her beautiful daughter down the staircase, where the two suddenly stopped and gave each other 'that' glance to say - 'let's do this!' - it was a real intimate moment and part of the day which was captured on camera and will be cherished forever.

Another moment on the day happened during the vows between Donna and Martin, where Donna's daughter Lara wanted to be part of the action - and so held mummy and daddy's hand during the ceremony gazing up at the two of them. It's a photograph which really captures the day and one which was diligently captured on camera for them.

After the ceremony had finished we briefly whisked Donna and Martin off into Mottram Hall's gardens for some gorgeous wedding portraits before they headed back to mingle with their families.

Into the evening we had a blast on the dancefloor capturing everyones best dance moves - and there were plenty of moves on show! After the first dance we went outside to the front of the hall to capture an awesome lit up night-time shot of them together in front of Mottram Hall.

This was such a wonderful wedding to be involved in, we really can't wait to come back for our next Mottram Hall Wedding!
