Mottram Hall Wedding Photography
A few words from Mark and Qian about their wedding day
1) Day One – Tell us about your day
Originally Mark and I were going to just have a civil wedding however we knew it would not be complete if we did not have a Chinese wedding, so we’ve decided to spread our wedding over two days. Day One was the civil wedding and we’ve chosen to get married at Mottram Hall as we fell in love with the place the first time we visited. We started our day with the civil wedding ceremony, followed by Chinese Tea ceremony and evening reception for our close families and friends. Mark and I enjoyed every moment of the day with lots of laughter (and some happy tears). It was a very special moment for us when we declared each other as husband and wife and we got to share this with our families and friends.
2) What were your most memorable moments?
Brides Answer: There were lots of memorable moments but one stood out to me was when I was walking down the aisle and the first person I saw was Mark smiling back at me. I tried to keep all the emotions inside and not burst into tears(!).
Grooms Answer: At the evening reception when I did my speech, seeing Qian’s smile as I said “I will love you forever”.
3) What do you love about being married?
Brides Answer: Get to call Mark my husband and looking forward to having many more happy memories together.
Grooms Answer: Just being happy and we’re now officially husband and wife.
4) What advice can you give for others getting married?
Brides Answer: Preparation is key so make sure to plan ahead. On the day of your wedding, enjoy every moment of it as time will soon fly by.
Grooms Answer: Budget, budget, budget! Make sure you prioritise and spend on the important things first. One of which is getting a great photographer (i.e. Joy from Beautiful Life).

6) Why did you choose Beautiful Life to Photograph your day?
We initially discovered Beautiful Life through various photography websites and it stood out from the rest, Joy’s quality of work was amazing and beautifully captured. We stopped the search and booked Beautiful Life to photograph our two day wedding straight away. Joy was so easy to work with at our wedding and we love how she captured every special moments and every little details. Seeing the pictures on the blog brings back so many happy memories, feels like it was just yesterday that we got married! Joy, Mark and I want to give you the warmest THANK YOU for working with us and photographed these amazing photos. Without a shadow of doubt, we would definitely recommend you to anyone who’s looking for a professional photographer.
