Quarry Bank mill is a stunning location for a wedding so I was delighted when I discovered that I would be photographing Robyn and Simon’s wedding there.  

 

 

 

The estate offers a huge range of magnificent photo opportunities which we discovered when we went for a pre-shoot a few weeks before the wedding. The great thing about doing a pre-shoot is that it gives you a great feel for the venue and ideas for potential shots; and a place like Quarry Bank Mill has so much to offer from intimate portraits in their gardens to dramatic vista shots in front of the watermill.

We had a great day exploring the place and posing for pictures, but we were still missing that big ‘album shot’. As we were standing facing Styal Mill admiring the architecture and all the windows on the building we had a ‘light bulb’ moment.  We could take a huge wide-angle picture of the Robyn and Simon posing in the middle window of the mill. The only problem was that the windows didn’t open enough to be able to see them properly.

Styal Mill were incredibly accommodating – not only did they agree for us to do it, but they also offered to remove the entire window on the wedding day so we could get the perfect shot! As the big day approached I was worried that they might change their mind or decide it wasn’t safe, but as promised they supplied a joiner who took out the window so we could get this amazing image. The only thing that Robyn and Simon had to worry about was not getting vertigo whilst they posed.

Now the Quarry Bank Mill have asked to use this image on their website and literature. Check out their website: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/quarry-bank-mill/

Amazing photograph. I thought you had 'superimposed' the bride and groom for the window shot. The info on how the shot was taken with the assistance of Quarry Bank Mill is amazing. How good of them to let you do this!
