Today I am thrilled to share this gorgeous Winter Wedding at Woburn Abbey Sculpture Gallery with pretty red & white details.
Images were captured by Priti Shikotra.
Priti is a creative storyteller based out of Manchester providing Northwest Manchester Wedding Photography and beyond.
She loves to travel on the job and has been privileged to be able to shoot weddings all over the UK including Cornwall, Liverpool, Herefordshire, Manchester, Chester, London and more.
When not photographing weddings, she is in the photo pit photographing live concerts and working with record labels and management for PR and Commercial work.
She is also a travel junkie and loves adventures running a travel blog too.
Through travel photography & music, it’s given her work a documentary feel and she loves to capture weddings in a very similar way wworking with people from all walks of life.
She says of the couple and their day…
“Ali & Dave sent an enquiry through the website after coming across photos from a wedding I had previously shot at Woburn Sculpture Gallery.”
“It is one of my favourite venue’s to photograph at so I was really excited about the possibility of being a part of their big day.”
“It was even more exciting as it was due to be a winter wedding.”
“We met over a Skype consultation, turns out Ali use to live up North and still has family here. ”
“They went ahead and booked me and we met in person at the Engagement shoot we booked in on the run up to the wedding.”
“Their Big Day was stunning.”
“As it was around a week before Christmas, it was due to be a celebration for the wedding plus Christmas with guests they may have not seen for a while and so forth.”
“The ceremony itself was lovely, and the detail and decor and thought which had gone into the day was beautiful.”
“I was so happy they had booked me for their day as it was magical. Cheesy I know but it’s true!”
I hand over to beautiful Bride Ali…
How did you meet?
“We met at work, and after about 2 years of flirty texting we finally got drunk enough to have our first kiss, and we have never looked back!”
Tell us about the Engagement...
“We were engaged for much longer than we originally planned, as we found out Ali was pregnant not long after the proposal, so we had to save for Dexter to come along instead of the wedding!”
Tell us about your wedding planning journey
“Originally we were planning on an small wedding abroad, with just a few friends and family there, however after going to a couple of wedding fairs we accidentally found a venue in the UK that we fell in love with.”
“Due to the size of the venue a small intimate wedding was off the cards, so we ended up with lots of friends and family there.”
“They provided us with a list of their recommended suppliers, so apart from the suits, dress and Priti everything came off that list.”
“This was really handy as they’d all worked together before and knew what to expect, so we didn’t have to get involved with anything other than picking what we wanted.”
What was the best bit of your day?
“Seeing everything all coming together.”
“Although you have planned it all and got an image in your head of what it will look like, to see everything there and laid out properly is amazing.”
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
“To try and get everything booked as early as possible, that way you can relax and enjoy the build up knowing everything is already taken care of.”
