Tipi Wedding Photographer Lancashire

Alex & Dan’s brilliant winter Tipi wedding in Lancashire

Tipi Wedding in Lancashire

Alex & Dan asked me around nine months ago, to photograph their wedding, having been referred by Katie & Will. “It’s going to be a church wedding, with a Tipi reception in the field at the farm near Bentham. In February”. I like a challenge and jumped at the opportunity of being a Tipi Wedding Photographer Lancashire and being part of this special day. Logistically for Alex & Dan’s wedding I needed a second shooter, so a big thank you goes to Martin Hambleton for sharing what was going to prove a busy day for us both.

Here are some of the highlights from the day…

Emotional Father of The Bride

One of the images I wanted from the morning was dad seeing Alex for the first time. When the door opened, the emotions were running high. I had a lump in my throat too, but as a Tipi Wedding Photographer Lancashire, I worked through it. With the preparations for Alex¬† finishing, and Dan and the wedding guests already in the pub, it was time for me to head off towards St James The Lesser Church in Higher Tatham; a beautiful 15th Century building about to be rocked by 120 or so guests playing ‘wedding day sardines’ ūüėČ

A Village Wedding in Lancashire

All was quiet at the church so far. The guests were on their way in a bus, Dan and the groomsmen in their cars. The wetaher was stunning too; beautiful sunshine all the way. I was keeping my eye on it though, just in case we lost valuable shooting time after the ceremony. So far, this was to prove a stunning village wedding in Lancashire, and as a Tipi Wedding Photographer Lancashire, I was ready for the silence to be broken…in a good way of course!

Smiling wedding guests at a Tipi wedding in Lancashire

As we left church, we had to work quickly but not make it too obvious. The light was failing and we had 120 guests leaving church, ‘fully loaded’ with confetti, forming two lines stretching over 30m. Some walk of fame this was going to be! The smiling wedding guests were ready. Alex & Dan ran the confetti gauntlet, and as the atmosphere stepped up a gear, the family group photos in the bag – it was time to jump in the bus and head to the party…

Tipi Wedding in Lancashire

The Tipi was situated on the family farm, and a big surpirise for many of the wedding guests. It looked stunning, and strong enough to withstand the threatening tail end of Hurricane Barbara. So everyone was happy!
