An awesome wedding up in Manchester with two brilliant & lovely people – Jay & Tessa!

I was over the moon when Jay & Tessa asked me to capture their day! I met Jay a few years back after starting a short lived career in music PR – we were introduced by our great mutual friend James Parrish (who Jay is now a business partner with) – and he is a great guy! I met Tessa shortly after that, and it was clear from the seeing them together, that they really were a perfect couple. I was not in the slightest surprised when then got engaged, indeed Jay needed to nail that deal as quick as he could haha, and I was so excited when they asked me to come up north and be part of their awesome wedding!

The morning began with me hanging out at Tessa’s Dads place (which is a cool ass house in Glazebury with a lush garden) while she did the bridal prep thing…I drank tea, Tessa & her sister drank wine, it was a pretty good time and I took a few photographs as well! A quick trip to the lovely All Saints Church (a church very close to Tessa and her family for many reasons) for a wonderful fun filled ceremony, and a very nervous looking Jay at the start, culminating in a brilliant confetti tunnel and a little portrait session in the grounds, before they all jumped aboard a vintage bus for the short journey to The Raven Inn for food, photos and drinks!

It sticks in my mind how lovely an atmosphere we had all morning and afternoon, everything was relaxed and fun, and Jay & Tessa were on top form for our photo sessions. It all went in a whirlwind, some lovely food was had, and I had a great time getting to know some of the family and friends invited along. We were next off to the Manchester Museum for the evening reception, some brilliant speeches (especially from best man James) and a proper party that featured some eye opening dance routines from some of the more mature guests haha – it was basically epic!

Jay & Tessa nailed this wedding, had the day they wanted, and will have some awesome memories that will last a life time – I am just so pleased I was part of it. Thank you guys 🙂

This is the story of Jay & Tessa’s day…
