Winter wedding at Rowley Manor
When my cousin Mo asked me to photograph her wedding at Rowley Manor Hotel, Little Weighton, I was both
flattered and a little apprehensive.
Now I have photographed numerous weddings over many years but there seems an added pressure when it’s family.
Come on Kev ‘man up’ I’m thinking it will be fine… and so it was. Like many brides… and grooms for that matter,
Mo said she wasn’t the most comfortable in front of the camera but she wanted a relaxed informal approach, music to my ears!
That suits me fine and I arranged a pre-wedding shoot with them to get them used to this photography mularky.
By chance I picked a location near to both of us, Broughton Woods, and find out Mo had lived in Broughton and
Dave’s mum still lived there, as Harry Hill might say, “what are the chances of that”.
Well we had a blast and they both took it in their stride and we captured some great images and more importantly put them at ease
about the wedding photography.
Come the day and Rowley Manor is such a chilled out venue, beautiful inside and out, it just matched Mo and Dave’s
personalities, nothing was too much trouble. Meeting other members of the family I had never met before was also
a real bonus and added to a fab day. Congrats Mo and Dave, these family weddings aren’t so bad after all! x
