Getliffes Yard Wedding Photography | Cara & Andy

A Winter Wedding at Stoke-on-Trent Register Office

Cara & Andy got in touch in December 2018 looking for someone to photograph their marriage at Stoke-on-Trent Registry Office followed by a Getliffes Yard wedding after-party. They didn’t want a huge day full of formalities so in the end settled on the only formality which matters followed by a great big party.

Cara & Andy like many others has never really done this wedding lark before and really just needed a few pointers in the right direction of how they could have their big day but on a smaller scale. I love getting involved in the planning of my couples days as much as they would like me to.

When I first went round to talk about their wedding day we sat for ages just discussing the best way they could possibly do their timings for the day. We took into account everything from guests’ enjoyment to everything I would personally need to capture some lovely photographs. One thing we couldn’t really budge though was the timings. They’d planned to get married at 16:30 after the sun had gone to sleep at 16:00. A true horror story for most photographers but not me! I was so excited about this challenge. I knew we could create something unlike anything else before.

Getliffes Yard has long been a favourite place for me to go when visiting Leek. The old cobbled path and wrought iron walkway full of fantastic independent shops and galleries is a mecca for shopping locally in the area. So when Cara and Andy said they were having a Getliffes Yard wedding after party I was super excited.
