We first went to Rowton Hall with Jess and Mike a few weeks ago, for their pre-wedding shoot on a lovely summer’s evening. This time it was Rookery Hall to meet Mike and his best man, both of whom were looking suitably handsome if a little nervous. Then it was off to meet Jessica and the girls at her Mum’s house, where we found hair and makeup artist Harry Jon creating truly amazing hairstyles. The bridesmaids looked gorgeous and Jess herself absolutely stunning; Mum and Dad were clearly so proud. At St Oswald’s church Mike was waiting anxiously (Jess was a teeny bit late!) but that didn’t matter a bit when his beautiful bride walked down the aisle. The new Mr and Mrs Barbera enjoyed some photos at the church before leaving for their reception at the stately Rowton Hall. After the wedding breakfast we went for a walk with Jess and Mike, and found settings for some gorgeous portrait shots. We always really enjoy this part of the day, and couples do too – quite often it gives them chance to catch their breath after all the hurly-burly of the day. A loving first dance gave way to a lively party as the the band got into their groove and the dance floor filled. A great day Mr and Mrs Barbera, congratulations!
