Celebrating the wedding of Dawn & Michael at Bartle Hall in Lancashire

Here is an example of my Bartle Hall Wedding Photography Lancashire. Dawn & Michael commissioned me to capture their special day back in September. Bartle Hall is a beautiful country house situated between Preston and Blackpool, with around 16 acres of grounds….a brilliant Lancashire wedding venue.

The couple and I really hit it off, and love the fact that I quietly capture weddings without any fuss or bossing people around. So I went to work and just ‘did my thing’…

I wasn’t required to photograph any bridal preparations,but Dawn is such good fun I gatecrashed the party anyway and grabbed a few images of the girls’ preparations…

The stunning flowers were all down to the artistry of Flower Design.


As the guests atarted to arrive, a quiet, jolly Michael was in great form. Slightly nervous, but enjoying the company of his family and friends…plus the obligatory pint!

The weather was glorious, with all the guests enjoying the September sunshine. Dawn, Michael & I popped away for a few minutes to grab some Bride & Groom portraits, mostly live and undirected…..as it should be.

“Mick – could we please have a shot of us walking in front of the hall and guests?” Michael asked.  “Yep – we’ve already shot it” I replied to a couple of bewildered faces….I love shooting live and unstaged. 😉

Music was provided by the very talented Alex Birtwell. The guy seemingly never stopped playing all day. And when he wasn’t playing, he was the MC. The evening party was brilliant, with ‘proper’ lights ‘n’ stuff, and together with his brother Lewis, put on a show as large as any live band…just with the two of them! Well worth checking out…
