Michelle & Marc’s Wedding at The Chequers Inn, Grantham,
Back in mid-October I had a great day photographing Michelle and Marc’s lovely Lincolnshire wedding. Their ceremony took place at St John the Evangelist Church, in Manthorpe, which is just outside of Grantham. In the build up to the ceremony you could really sense the nervous excitement in Marc as he carefully balanced the need to meet and greet their guests with the equally pressing needs of his young son, who was rarely far from his father’s side.
When Michelle arrived, that same mixture of heady anticipation and a few understandable nerves seemed to emanate from her as, with her clearly very proud father, she walked up the path to the church. All this emotion came together in a ceremony that was as laid back as I’ve ever seen in a church, with several laugh-out-loud moments and one lovely touch by the vicar when he invited all the children to sit in the aisle so they could get a good view of the exchange of rings.
For the reception, the couple had chosen The Chequers Inn, a delightful and award winning 17th century pub and restaurant in Woolsthorpe by Belvoir. Reknowned for it’s great food – and having eaten there before I can vouch for this myself – the Chequers has that lovely warm and homely feel that you only find in the best country pubs, and it made for a genuinely relaxed and intimate venue for the rest of Marc and Michelle’s big day.
From the first time we spoke, I found Michelle and Marc a pleasure to work with and I’d like to thank them both for the opportunity to be a small part of such a special occasion and wish them and their family the best of luck for the future.
