Ribble Valley & Lancashire Wedding and Family Photographer.
If you remember, earlier this year, I did an engagement shoot at Clitheroe Castle for Rowan and Alex. It was a freezing cold day and the ground was covered in snow. Their gorgeous boxer dog, Simon joined them for the photo shoot. It was a great morning and Simon was up to mischief. I love boxer dogs. They are one of my favourite breeds.
Anyway, flash forward to the end of summer. Rowan and Alex got married in Zante. They took their close friends and family to witness the wedding. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go with them. But I did get to be their wedding photographer for their UK party!
I joined Rowan with her 8 bridesmaids at her parents house in Burscough for bridal preparation. The house was full of makeup, straighteners and laughter!
The bridal party were collected by 3 lovely wedding cars and driven to Hurlston Hall Golf Club to meet the rest of the wedding party. I left about 15 mins ahead of them in order to catch up with the groom and his groomsmen. I took a walk round with Alex and the groomsmen and we took some photos on the way.
By now, Rowan and the bridal party had arrived. I whisked the newlyweds off for their couples portraits. The sun was setting and it was so beautiful! Rowan and Alex are childhood sweethearts and totally in love. They made my job of getting some natural images easy!
After their portraits, the bride and groom went for a drive in the wedding car before the guests arrived. That way, they could make a grand entrance. By the time they returned, all the guests were outside waiting; armed with confetti! The guests were in for a treat. Karen (Rowan’s Mum) had made a fantastic wedding cake for them. It even had fairy lights in it! They also had a magic mirror, candy floss machines, a sweetie table and Greek dancers!
Rowan and Alex make such a wonderful couple and I wish them all the best for their future.
