Ribble Valley and Lancashire Wedding, Newborn and Family Photographer.
Reece and Rachael got married a few weeks back, in November. It was a cold, but amazing day!
I was working along side Kathryn Jefferson from Delicious Photography. Kathryn started off as my mentor for newborn photography and then for wedding photography. She has now become a good friend.
Anyway, myself and Kathryn joined Rachael and her two bridesmaids at The Dunkenhalgh Hotel and Spa, Clayton-le-Moors, Blackburn. This is where they got ready for the big day. They all had their hair and makeup professionally done and were all wearing beautiful, matching dressing gowns. I love to photograph bridal preparation, it really gets you in the mood for the exciting day ahead. It is fabulous to get involved in the girly conversation, have a bit of a laugh and capture some amazing images at the same time. Rachael had a few visitors to her room; her parents and her two sons.
From there, they all made their way to St Wulstan's Church, Great Harwood. They traveled in a VW Camper Van. This is where she joined Reece and they soon became Mr & Mrs. Shortly after the wedding ceremony was over, I quickly made my way to Bashall Barn, Clitheroe. I arrived a good 20-30 minutes before the bride and groom and was able to capture some of the delicate details of the venue. After all, couples spend ages picking out details and putting personal touches on their day. It would be a shame to miss them out. All the details really complimented Rachael's dress. It really was a venue fit for a princess.
Reece and Rachael had now arrived. We spent about 30 minutes doing some beautiful couples portraits before a handful of family ones. It was now time to get warm again before the wedding breakfast and speeches! Now, the bride and groom were ready to party with their friends and family.
It really was a fantastic day from start to finish. I have attached my favourite images from the day. Enjoy.
