Thornton Manor Wedding Photography

This is a bucket list kinda thing for me, I absolutely adore Thornton Manor weddings and when Vicky and James asked me along to capture their big day and provide their Thornton Manor Wedding Photography,  I jumped at the chance. A stunning bride her handsome fella, and Thornton Manor, it would be rude not to. I love it here, it has so many beautiful aspects to the grounds that it is crazy good. Trouble is, the weather. Yes, good old UK weather, it didn’t stop raining all day, apart from when it needed to, for about 20 minutes and in that time, all those shots you see here, the ones in the gardens, the confetti shot and a few family formals, were all captured. It has to be among the fastest I have worked ever. It was pretty bleak at times, I am just so happy Vicky and James put their faith and trust in me.

On that note, about the weather, here’s a few words from the gorgeous Vicky herself:

I truly believe your wedding photographer is one of the most important choices a bride-to-be can make, as it moulds how you remember your day in the years and decades to come, and my memories are only wonderful. 

I think it’s pretty normal to have wedding jitters, will our weather hold out…will our guests have a great day…what might go wrong and will it affect how we enjoy the day. One thing I never worried about was Phil, we had seen Phil shoot another wedding for our friends and were blown away with how he had portrayed what we remembered as a drizzly, grey day, into stunning moody shots. From our first interactions and meeting with Phil he was amazing, he was always prompt with emails, and gave us really great advice in the run up to the wedding day, and we felt relaxed with him from the very first moment.

Phil was with us from the very start of the day, he made all my bridesmaids feel so calm and comfortable, and really got the essence of the getting ready part- the first flutters of excitement, finally seeing everyone in their dresses, and seeing the image of the wedding I always wanted, coming into fruition.

I must have tried on hundreds of dresses before I found my dream dress, I had such a clear picture of the style I wanted, and it definitely wasn’t a meringue! My dress was made by designer Riki Dalal, and their London flagship store were able to custom make it for me. I loved the shape of it, the curve and flow. It made me feel beautiful, and it was quite different from dresses I had seen elsewhere. Phil worked with the silhouette of the dress so well, he captured the essence of the dress. When I look back at those photographs I get a little giddy feeling- that was my perfect day, that was my perfect dress, and I got to marry my best friend feeling absolutely amazing! The wedding day went so fast- what a cliche! But Phil was our own mini co-ordinator, and the time with him allowed us to actually focus on each other. I had an amazing day, but some of the most important memories I have are of my husband and I taking alone time, and Phil captured that beautifully.

We are extremely grateful to Phil, I truly believe your wedding photographer is one of the most important choices a bride-to-be can make, as it moulds how you remember your day in the years and decades to come, and my memories are only wonderful.

Thank you Vicky, I will always be grateful for the opportunity you gave to me, for the trust and the faith….and my memories are only wonderful…wow, I am going to have to get that printed on a T shirt or something.
