Ribble Valley and Lancashire Wedding and Newborn Photographer.
Back in December, I shot my first Christmas wedding when I was second shooting for my good friend, Laura Duggleby Photography. It was the wedding of Sally and Scott and was held at The Shireburn Arms, Hurst Green, Clitheroe.
Let me start by saying what a totally amazing day it was from start to finish. Myself and Laura were in contact from first thing in the morning as it had been snowing! Luckily for us, it didn't stick to the roads. We made sure we were at The Shireburn Arms extra early! Sally was pleased to see we had made it and she was getting her hair done whilst her bridesmaids were getting their makeup done.
Armed with cameras, we were ready to go. Grabbing a few shots of the ladies getting ready, before going to scope out the venue for perfect places for the couples portraits. We needed to have a backup plan due to the weather. Plus, the ceremony wasn't until 3pm, so light was against us. En route, shots of the venue were taken, including all the little details Scott and Sally had put around. I LOVE details! Time to finish off bridal preparation. Sally was now having her makeup done and my word, she was looking amazing! The wedding flowers had now arrived and she was ecstatic to see them. Her bridesmaids now helped her in to her wedding dress. It looked perfect on her. Shortly after she had been strapped firmly in to her dress, her parents came to have a peep at her. Sally's Father looked so proud!
Everyone was now ready to go down stairs for the big event! Laura was positioned at the front and I was to the rear (it is a good idea to have two photographers at a wedding as you get different angles and more coverage). Sally and the gang were ready to go. Her Father walked her down the isle. He looked like the Cheshire Cat! His smile was beaming. Scott's smile was just as wide when he clapped eyes on his beautiful bride.
Once the ceremony was finished, we mingled with the guests and took lots of relaxed, informal photographs before moving on to do the couples shots with just the bride and groom. Now it was time for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Sally's parents were amazing to observe throughout that; they laughed and they laughed, hard!
Whilst the room was being set up for the evening reception, we whisked Scott and Sally outside for a couple of night shots. We returned to the evening reception and the bride and groom cut their beautiful cake before having their first dance as husband and wife.
We departed just after 9pm and they continued their celebrations.
