Ribble Valley & Lancashire Wedding and Family Photographer.
Leanne and Amy. Where do I start? I have known Leanne for a number of years now as I used to work with her. When she asked me if I would be hers and Amy’s wedding photographer, I couldn’t have been happier. I didn’t know Amy at this time so we met up to discuss their plans over a coffee. I love listening to wedding plans! The ladies told me how neither of them liked having their photo taken and were both nervous around the camera. A lot of people say that to me. So, we decided to add on an engagement / pre wedding shoot to their wedding package so they could see that I am not that scary to work with. We did that shoot at Brockholes Nature Reserve at Preston. It went really well and they both got in to it. What’s more, they loved their photographs!
Leanne and Amy got married on Mothering Sunday at Beeston Manor, Preston, Lancashire. So that day was already special for two reasons. There was a third reason that made it an extra special day - It was also Leanne’s Parents 40th wedding anniversary! Celebrations all round!
The ladies chose to get ready together at Beeston Manor. They were also with Leanne’s two children, Oliver and Beth. I couldn’t believe how relaxed they all were together. It was like it was just a normal day.
Amy doesn’t wear dresses or skirts, so they had chosen matching bridal jumpsuits and converse style trainers decorated in diamontes. Amy never wears makeup, so this was a big thing for her to have her makeup done. Do you know what? She looked amazing!
I may have turned into an emotional wreck behind my camera during the ceremony. I always fill up with tears during the wedding vows, even with my couples that I have only met once or twice. But Leanne couldn’t even say her vows due to trying to hold back her tears. Then her children got emotional - wow!
Anyway, they were now wife and wife! How awesome is that? We made our way back downstairs to the drinks reception before making our way out in to the beautiful grounds for some couples portraits. It wasn’t raining, but it was bitter cold. Leanne and Amy were so excited, they weren’t bothered about the cold.
Their rainbow wedding bouquets were amazing. Even their beautiful wedding cake has rainbow layers inside!
