Same Sex Wedding
Emma + Karis’ Same Sex Wedding was held at Owen House Wedding Barn on the hottest day of the year. The UK heatwave was in full force and it was welcomed by everyone! We originally met Karis + Emma at a wedding last year but we all didn’t realise until we chatted over email and then it all clicked! Once K+E had booked us they decided to have a pre wedding shoot to help ease their nerves of being photographed on the day. We met in Manchester at Home Sweet Home because it is the best place for breakfast in Manchester. We spent the first hour of the shoot drinking milkshakes, coffee, eating pancakes, waffles and a big huge skillet of spicy food. Of course talking weddings in between stuffing our faces. What we discovered about the upcoming wedding was that it wasn’t going to be traditional in any way. It was going to be fun, full of friends, a dog ring bearer, food and one hell of a party and that was exactly how the day planned out.
Frog Florist Manchester
When we arrived at Owen House we were so impressed! The place was full of greenery and it looked so tropical and funky. Very Karis + Emma. We have never seen a venue dressed like it and we are huge fans. We have worked alongside Frog on 3 occasions now. Each and every time they deliver and wow everyone at their Manchester/Cheshire based weddings. I mean how amazing does the venue look and how gorgeous is Emma’s bouquet?
As the ceremony commenced it started to heat up in the ceremony room. It wasn’t the hot weather that was getting to people it was actually Karis’ dads kilt that had set on fire from the candles in the aisle! After a pat down on the kilt and a lot of laughter, the ceremony ended and everyone piled out onto the terrace where they were welcomed with ice cream/sorbet to cool down from the cute Hyacinth, the ice cream van.
American Football Ladies
The thing we loved about this wedding was how close everyone was. K+E met playing American Football so a lot of the guests were their football team mates including our lovely previous couple Roz + Jim (American Football ladies PARTY HARD!). Homer who trains these crazy American Football ladies took the part as master of ceremonies and man alive he didn’t hold back one little bit! It made for some hilarious pictures of Karis + Emma holding their head in their hands and sliding lower and lower into their seats. Thanks Homer!
After a set of beautiful, heartfelt and tearful speeches it was time to PARTY! Now if you have never heard Ultimate Power club then check them out (link is at the bottom of this post). Power Ballards from start to finish. Everyone headed to the dance-floor with inflatable guitars and microphones in hand to blast out some crazy ass singing to Queen, Cher and Meat Loaf. A fun, singing, dancing like no one is watching, sweaty dance floor was just ace to capture and of course we joined in with our pretend air guitars.
Thank you Karis + Emma for having us along to your wedding. Wed had a great time with you all.
