From the moment I met them, I knew this was going to be a fantastic wedding – they’re two of the nicest and zaniest young folks I’ve come across in my career as a wedding photographer. But there’s something else that made me so excited about shooting their wedding – the venue was Knowsley Hall. If you’ve spent any time on my website at all, you’ll know that I’m just a little bit geeky about the place. When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, every box is ticked: Fabulous rooms: Check. Attentive professional staff: Check. Amazing gardens and exterior: Check. Delicious food: Check. OK, so it’s not the cheapest place out there, but you certainly get what you pay for with Knowsley Hall! One of its best features is that it’s as gorgeously amazing indoors as it is outdoors. This isn’t true of all venues, so if rain comes along on your wedding day and you get stuck indoors all day, it’s just as well to have chosen a lovely interior as well as exterior. Why do I bring this up? Well, it rained pretty much all day on Amy and Greg’s wedding day. It was a May wedding, so one might’ve hoped that it would be dry, but sadly not. This meant we couldn’t take advantage of the incredibly beautiful gardens at Knowsley Hall. As the day progressed, we kept hoping it would brighten up, but the rain kept pouring. From the start of the day, when the staff were escorting guests with umbrellas from the carpark to the front door, to the end of the evening, when my assistant and I were packing our cars to go home.
