Laura & Anthony do marriage - St John’s Church, Burnley and Best Western - Higher Trapp, Simonstone.

Ribble Valley & Lancashire Wedding and Family Photographer.


Back in June, I have the privilege of being Laura and Anthony's wedding photographer.  Anthony's Mum, Sandra had found me on Facebook.  I had met up with the three of them in January. We discussed the bride and grooms plans over a Starbucks coffee at Blackburn. We instantly hit it off and they booked me there and then - happy days!

Laura and Anthony got ready for their big day just doors apart in Worsthorne, Burnley. Laura got ready at their address and Anthony nipped next door but one to his parents. I was able to cover both bridal and groom preparation this way. It was a busy morning; bridesmaids and groomsmen everywhere. That being said, everything ran calmly and smoothly.

Laura and Anthony got married at St John's Church in Burnley. It was a lovely ceremony, full of big smiles and lots of love!

From there, the newlyweds made their way to Best Western - Higher Trapp Hotel. They were followed by friends and family. I rushed on ahead to get there before them. It was time for everyone to grab a refreshing drink from the drinks reception. It was a boiling hot summers day, so they all needed it.

Whilst the guests were busy, I whisked the new Mr & Mrs McGowan away for couples' portraits, my favourite time of the day. The grounds at the Higher Trapp are beautiful, so I made sure that we made best use of them.

In the evening, Anthony surprised his new wife. He had been having secret Irish dancing lessons. He had arranged three dancers to come along and join him to impress Laura. Her face was a picture! Well done Anthony!
