Joanne and Gary – The Mere Golf and Country Club
The Mere Wedding Photography.
Our third wedding of the year, and our second wedding at The Mere Golf and Country Club in Cheshire. Joanne and Gary decided to do the whole thing at The Mere, which is a perfect location for a great winter wedding.
Our day started at Joanne and Gary’s house for the bridal prep.
Grey suits are a favorite of ours and always a good choice from a wedding photography perspective. Here is Gary (the cool looking one with his hands in his pockets) and best man Jowan.
The guests begin arriving.
This wedding was light on groomsmen with Gary pacing all his trust in Jowan for support. What it lacked in guys though, it made up on the girls site with no less than eight bridesmaids. That’s two big ones (if you see what I mean), one medium, and five small.
Some last minute discussion about who goes first, then . . . .
It’s off down the aisle.
Gary checks the fine print carefully before signing.
Are these guys going to grow up to be secret agents, or maybe the next generation of photographers? What do you think?
It was cold outside but good enough to get everyone out for a quick photo.
No confetti on the golf course (can’t think why not) but it was permitted on the pavilion.
A few more formal groups, then Joanne and Gary were up for a walk down to the lake for a few bride and groom shots. For an overcast day in February, the light outside was really nice.
This portrait of Joanne is my favourite.
Details. The wishing well was built by Gary’s own hand.
We grabbed this shot between courses. Timing was crucial because we wanted to get the blue of the sky before it turned completely dark.
