GRACE & REID // UTOPIA BROUGHTON HALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY DOM & LIAM
Grace and Reid’s wedding was a veritable force of nature. From the minute we arrived there was just something special in the air, the kind of light that you only get to see when a big storm is about to arrive (which lucky for us only arrived for a short while at the reception!) but creates this magical, perfect stillness in the atmosphere that is just phenomenal to capture. We were very honoured to be asked to photograph this wedding, Grace’s late father was a well-known art dealer and Grace certainly knew her stuff and had a very keen creative eye. It was her idea to capture the First Look and it was Grace and her soon-to-be hubby’s wonderful idea to go to the moors to do so. We absolutely adore it when our couples choose the location for the First Look, it makes it even more special when the place means so much to them both.
Grace and Reid really had thought of everything and at their wonderful reception at Utopia, Broughton Hall they had arranged for games for the children to play which continued well into the evening when the adults also decided it was time to join in! It turns out you really haven’t lived until you play bowls under blue lights at midnight… amazing scenes and ones we will always remember!
Thanks so much to Grace, Reid, their family and friends for the best of times.
