Wedding Photography at Mitton Hall: Russell & Helen

Russell & Helens Wedding was an emotional day... a very emotion day, and found us back at Mitton Hall in the beautiful Lancashire countryside. Mitton Hall is rapidly becoming one of our most popular venues (luckily its one of our favourite). I think my lasting memory of Russell & Helens wedding will be their attention to detail, everything was planned to the last detail & the weather also played its part.All in all a beautiful couple,a beautiful venue and a beautiful day.

Wedding Photography at Whittlebury Hall:Mark & Rhiannon

Regular visitors to my blog will know just how much I love photographing weddings, it’s the people, the locations, the emotions and all the weddings Jane & I have photographed have been clients… until now.
I first met Mark really when I started in photography…. Er a few years ago when he worked at Spicer Hallfield who then supplied our albums & our friendship grew through the lows of Spicers demise & the highs of Mark now being a bigwig at Hasselblad (anybody,ANYBODY who loves photography will know Hasselblad, they are the Rolls Royce of cameras) and very much involved in my other love fashion photography. Rhiannon is one of the warmest, friendliest people I have had the pleasure to meet & dare I say Mark is a lucky man.
Mark & Rhiannons wedding was so special & to be so close to a wonderful couple on the start of a new journey was special.
The wedding was at the picturesque St Nicholas Church in Lillingstone Dayrell in Buckinghamshire ( this church has the most fantastic/crazy vicar ever) & on to Whittlebury Hall near Silverstone (it’s the hotel that the F1 teams stay at…its very posh).Meeting up with our friends from Hasselblad & some amazing photographers made the day (and evening) fly by.

Thanks Mark & Rhiannon & their families for making us so welcome & letting us be a part of their special day you both looked amazing. D&Jx

Wedding Photography at The Netherwood Hotel:Michael & Selma

I Love photographing Weddings, I LOVE photographing the Lake District, put the two together & for me you have something special. Michael & Selma were not happy with one beautiful location of the Netherwood Hotel in Grange Over Sands they wanted two with the gorgeous St Annes Church in Haverthwaite along with its friendly vicar.Selma looked stunning in her Ian Stuart dress (Michael scrubbed up aswell as we say in Wigan) & could have spent hour photographing them, but as we had a tight schedule I couldn't get carried away.I have said many time my favourite part of a wedding is the speeches & when Selma brother gave his speech on behalf of their Father it was from the heart & extra special all toped of with an hilarious Bestmans speech that kept both Jane & myself laughing all the way home

Wedding Photography at Farrington Lodge: Craig & Katie

there where two big wishes for this day.... one that Wigan Rugby Club would win the challenge cup & long time season ticket holders the Critchley family would be there to see this & mine was a day full of sun & joy, well as Katie had chosen her wedding to take place on the day of the challenge cup & in the morning the rain was torrential it looked like we would both be disappointed, but as Craig arrived at the gorgeous St Wilfrids Church in Standish out came the sun & out it stayed for photos in the gardens at Farrington Lodge in Leyland. Both Jane & I had a great time, not only photographing Craig & Katie but also their family & friends it was a great wedding.

ooh!! & yes Katie watched the rugby & Wigan won!!!!! and in the interest of happy families Craigs beloved Preston North End won aswell, Happy days :-)

Wedding Photography at Bartle Hall : Gary & Louise

This wedding holds the record for the closest bridal preparation ever... literally round the corner from our studio. This was going to be a day that the weather was going to play a big part & thankfully it did as Gary & Louise ceremony at Bartle Hall brought back a few memories of our own in the fact that their 3 children played a massive part of the day. Thanks really have to go to Gary & Louise who never stopped smiling all day.... even when I mentioned his speech :-)
