Talin and Alex chose the mock Tudor Last Drop Hotel as the venue for their wedding on a sunny day back in 2018. Is it too soon to mention their wedding car? Maybe. We’ll get there though!
The Last Drop Hotel in Bolton is a collection of 17th-century farmhouses. From the hotel, you have a beautiful view of the West Pennine Moors. There is plenty of parking, the food is good and the staff are friendly. The rooms can be a bit dark in the evenings but are lovely nonetheless.
Talin and Alex
Talin got ready at her house, surrounded by her friends and I was there, happily capturing it all for them. I can talk about the car now! We headed outside so I could capture Talin getting in her wedding car: a Shelby Ford Mustang. By far this was the coolest wedding car I have ever seen. It was owned by a friend of theirs who was letting them use it for their day. Putting the car aside, it was lovely to see Talin’s neighbours coming out to wish her well before she left.
I got the shots I needed then headed over to Last Drop Hotel to capture their ceremony and the rest of their day. It all went very smoothly and they were great fun to work with. The best man’s speech was funny and there was even a surprise song by one of the groomsmen which had everyone in stitches, myself included.
I stayed until late getting the laughs and joy of their day for them. I was very tempted by the chocolate fountain they had but managed to resist it in the end.
