Anna and Sam met in college in 2010 and got together in 2013. The have been together for nearly 6 years. Sam chose the amazing city of Prague to propose to Anna and the rest is history! (By the way, I have always wanted to visit Prague, I have only heard good things about it. They say that it comparable to Paris and that the beer is the best in Europe…Sounds amazing!)
Back on topic now; They chose the Barton Grange Hotel, near Garstang, Lancashire, to get married. Anna remembers how Sam didn’t look nervous at all whilst he was waiting for her at the other end of the aisle and told me that they particularly enjoyed the speeches and the after ceremony drinks when they managed to catch up with each other and their guests.
As many other brides, Anna felt anxious weeks before the wedding, fearing that something would go wrong. However, having the confidence that she had made the right decisions in terms of suppliers etc. was a huge relief. And of course being confident she had made the right decision when it came to Sam helped too! :)
Planning a wedding can be stressful (I am married, I know!) however it is so important to take time and to do your homework. As a wedding photographer I can’t stress enough the importance of asking questions, arrange a pre-wedding consultation, ask to see real and full wedding galleries and, if you are still not sure, ask again.
When I asked Anna about any advice she would give to other couples in relation to wedding photography she very kindly replied ‘Pick Craig! Craig was a hit with our guests and so many people commented on how nice he was and we've had some beautiful images taken. Craig made us feel so relaxed that it was easy to have our pictures taken by him as neither of us take a lot of pictures of ourselves and he managed to get some great pictures of guests who would usually avoid the camera’.
I hope you enjoy the pictures guys and I wish you the very best for the future.
