You may recognise Stephanie & Alan from their Couples photoshoot on Red Rocks only 9 weeks ago. Well, the big day has come around very quickly for this awesome couple and it was a privilege to photograph their day for them at Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa on the Wirral.
Alan and Stephanie met 6 years ago in the local pub they both drank in at one of the karaoke nights. She spotted him playing pool one night and thought he didn’t look to bad so she asked a mutual friend who he was. The mutual friend did the normal mature thing and ran over to him saying “My friend fancies you”.
It wasn’t until the following week that he plucked up the courage to speak to her when he joined the group for a drink. Stephanie still to this day can’t believe he spoke to her as she was “a bit worse for wear and thought she was the best singer in there” when in fact she’s tone deaf. After that they went on for a few drinks and the rest as they say is history.
They moved in with each other 12 months later and 9 months later they welcomed a beautiful little girl into the family. They had talked about marriage a lot but Al never plucked up the courage to ask as Stephanie always said “if he did it in public the answer would be no for embarrassing me.”
It wasn’t until November 2014 that he finally asked Stephanie, while on holiday in Madeira for her 30th Birthday. It came as a complete surprise. They had been for a romantic meal and afterwards we went for a stroll along the sea front when he Proposed.
Since then it has been full steam a head with the planning and finally 29 months later here we are.
Alan & Stephanie asked me for a hands off photojournalistic style of wedding photography which took me back to my roots. I honestly adored photographing this awesome couple and I hope you enjoy some of the below highlights of the day.
As always, have a look at the below Slideshow and images from this epic day. If you would like me to photograph your big day, please feel free to contact me!
