From the moment you walk into Gorton Monastery it is obvious that you are in a very special location. Ashley and Alex chose the venue for their wedding after careful consideration and it was the perfect setting for a perfect day.
We started with some pre wedding shots at a nearby hotel with both the bride and groom getting ready with their friends and family. It was clear from the start that both Ashley and Alex were fun loving, relaxed about the day and madly in love. I wanted to capture their personalities in the photos as well as the grandeur and atmosphere of the Monastery.
With storm clouds ominously gathering over the Monastery all day we weren’t sure if the weather was going to hold off. Luckily there was no rain throughout the day and we managed to shoot both inside and out.
Emotions ran high through the ceremony and it was touching to see how much the vows meant to both Ashley and Alex. It was important for me to try and capture that emotion and feeling so the couple could remember those months forever.
The altar of the Monastery with its multi coloured lights contrasting derelict brick work is a beautiful place to shoot and I enjoyed photographing Ashley and Alex there immensely. We managed to capture all the group shots outside including one big group shot taken from a top storey window.
The energy and fun ran high during the whole day and there were smiles on everyone’s faces throughout. I can honestly say I enjoyed capturing Ashley and Alex’s wedding hugely and wish them every luck for the future.
“There are no words to describe how completely over the moon I am with the wedding photos taken by Kellianne! She captured every moment exactly how I had wanted them and my photographs are beyond perfect! They are so natural and relaxed and she listened to everything I had told her I wanted. I will treasure these photos forever, so thank you so much for capturing our special day in such amazing photographs that we can look back on time and time again. We will definitely use Kellianne again and recommend her highly so thanks again! xxx “
