Ashfield House Photographer

 

Highlights from Sarah & Jon’s big day at this stunning Lancashire Wedding Venue

 

“Mick did an amazing job photographing mine and Jon’s wedding. We first met Mick when he was the photographer for my Mum’s wedding 9 years ago, and when deciding on a photographer for our wedding we knew it had to be Mick – as well as being a total professional he puts you at ease and was a calming influence on the wedding morning! The photos capture the wedding perfectly and are a brilliant way for us to remember the day…”

 

Ashfield House Wedding Photographer

Sarah & Jon were married at Christ Church in Parbold recently, with a reception at Ashfield House in Standish. They asked me to be their Ashfield House Wedding Photographer, and I couldn’t say no. A while back I photographed Sarah’s Mum’s wedding to step dad David, so it was an honour to be called up. Sarah’s preparations were to be at her parents’ home, just like it had been NINE years previously (where does the time go!) It was great to see so many of my wedding photos on display in the house. Jokingly I asked if they’d been to IKEA the day before to frame a few especially for my visit! But no, these had pride of place and I was well chuffed. And today I was to be their daughter’s Ashfield House Wedding Photographer.

Here are some of the highlights from Sarah & Jon’s wedding…

Traditional Church Ceremony

Sarah & Jon had opted for a traditional church ceremony. The vicar was brilliant – a Yorkshire lad through and through. He left me to do my thing unhindered. Well, I say unhindered, but he involved me in part of the ceremony too! Sarah was given away by her father, Ian, who was very proud, and had a massive smile on his face all day.The church was 21st Century too, with it’s own TV monitors, autocue for the lyrics to the hymns, plus it’s own mixing desk, to mix the live keyboards and drums to the PA mics….brilliant!

The wedding flowers were stunning, and made by the team at The Rose Boutique – lovely seeing Sarah & the team again!

Exclusive Wedding Venue

Ashfield House is a stunning exclusive wedding venue. It has won several awards in the wedding industry and well deserved too. Run expertly by Katie and her staff, this charming venue feels more like home than most. The atmosphere is brilliant too – very relaxed and unassuming, though the food and the overall service is among the very best you could ever expect. I have worked as an Ashfield House Wedding Photographer before, plus have shot styled shoots. Here’s one HERE from my good colleague Kerry Baker Makeup (who was also the MUA for this wedding!) And – another HERE for the cover shoot for Little White Books

Natural Style Wedding Photos

With the rain finally arriving as we arrived at Ashfield House, my day as an Ashfield House Wedding Photographer was put to the test. We opted for a few natural portraits in the main ballroom, plus a couple in the main entrance and on the elegant staircase, gambling on the rain stopping soon. Our gamble was to pay off after the speeches! With the portraits in the bag within around 15 mins, we then photographed a handful of family groups before rejoining the other wedding guests in full excited conversations. We were soon to be called through for the wedding breakfast and speeches.

Emotional Wedding Speeches

Sara & Jon’s wedding was to throw me a slight curve ball as their Ashfield House Wedding Photographer. Yes, I was expecting both fathers to produce fantastic, heartfelt speeches- bot the different in their style and approach. And we were treated to a joint Bride & Groom speech, before handing the reins over to the Best Man. A lovely touch. As the speeches drew to a close, so did the rain and the sunshine took over. So we promptly nipped outside for a few more natural and stylish wedding photos before the evening guests started to arrive. The gamble had truly paid off!

Wedding Celebrations at Ashfield House

With the evening guests gathered, we photographed the cake cutting and first dance, all hosted expertly by DFC. Then it was time for me to leave the party and head home. Another satisfied day as as an Ashfield House Wedding Photographer then… 🙂
