Fisherman’s Retreat Wedding Photographer

Rewind to last summer when it was hot, hot hot and my opportunity of being a Fisherman’s Retreat Wedding Photographer again. I say again, as this was my second visit to this stunning wedding venue in Ramsbottom. Maria & Steven are Ramsbottom residents (‘Rammie’s’) , and wanted a very local, relaxed feel for their summer Fisherman’s Retreat wedding. I got the call to meet up and talk about what I could offer Maria & Steven as their Fisherman’s Retreat Wedding Photographer. So, where best to meet, than actually at the venue one evening. Five minutes from their home, twenty from mine. Perfect! We hit it off straight away, and we booked everything in on the spot. This was going to be a very relaxed day…with a twist though…

The Royal Wedding

The bridal preparations were broken up into chunks, whilst the girls filled their glasses with Champagne and watched Megan & Harry’s Royal Wedding on the TV. I was still trying to be a Fishermans Retreat Wedding Photographer, and stay out of the way of the TV screen while they all gasped in sync at Tom Hardy and David Beckham

Mr Wilson’s Second Liners

And here comes the twist! Just as the first dance was in full swing, the party was gate-crashed by the brilliant Mr Wilson’s Second Liners. Down the path they marched pumping out club anthems on brass instruments. The dance floor emptied, together with the DJ to watch these guys. If you have never seen them in action, you should watch them HERE. Then book them! They are simply incredible. I first met them at Sarah & Charlotte’s wedding a year or so back – and was wowed then too…

Highlights from weddings and styled shoots at Falcon Manor

 

Falcon Manor Wedding Photographer

I’ve been a Falcon Manor Wedding photographer a handful of times now and have photographed a beautiful Falcon Manor Wedding at Christmas, plus another Falcon Manor Wedding in the Spring. Plus I have also photographed a beautiful Falcon Manor Wedding based styled shoot for Little White Books wedding planning magazine. This was for their front cover. You can read more about the shoot HERE .

For now though, here is the front cover of the magazine…

 

 

Here then, are a collection of images from taken at a Falcon Manor Wedding, to show how I work in my natural story-telling style at a Falcon Manor Wedding.

Falcon Manor Wedding Venue

Falcon Manor is stunning wedding venue, set up in Settle, on the border of Lancashire and North Yorkshire. Their website describes the venue as such –

“Falcon Manor as we know it today was built in 1841 for the Reverend Swale with money provided by his two grandmothers. They were anxious to create a property that was befitting his status in the local community. And they certainly achieved what they set out to do. They also donated £500 toward the cost of building the new Settle church on the basis that their grandson could be the first incumbent. They certainly had plans for their grandson!

It was originally named Ingfield Hall, after the field in which it was built. But no one is absolutely sure when the name was changed to the altogether more imaginative and evocative Falcon Manor. Guesses are it wasn’t until after 1921. So it’s been the Falcon Manor for a good few years and that’s what we’ll be calling it for a good few years to come.

James Places Weddings

The James’ Places Group bought the hotel in 2014 and undertook a full refurbishment program. This saw the fabulous original features exposed and restored once more. These features are complimented by wonderful wallpapers and soft furnishings, plus furniture and accessories all in our own unique style.

We hope you’ll agree the finished result is both dramatic and romantic and really quite beautiful to behold. Much like it’s architects and builders intended it to be. With interesting menus from a brigade of talented chefs, thoughtful wine lists and friendly, and an unstuffy service from a great front of house team. The reborn Falcon Manor aims to be something truly special…”

Winter Wedding Venue

Samantha & Jason were married just after Christmas, in the depths of the North Yorkshire snow. Theirs was a briilliant, intimate wedding – with a great atmosphere and some emotionally-charged speeches to boot. We ventured out for around 15 mins to grab some family group images at their Falcon Manor Wedding. This is a documentary shot of them making their way back in to the venue for a warm next to the roaring log fire…

The Oak Tree of Peover Wedding Venue

Nestled in the depths of the Cheshire countryside, just outside Knutsford, this brilliant wedding venue has a charm of it’s own. Formerly Peover Golf Club, the new look  and layout make the venue perfect for your Oak Tree Of Peover Wedding. The Oak Tree of Peover is proving to be a very popular wedding venue indeed, and my second time photographing weddings there…ironically exactly a year apart to the day….spooky! Nicola booked me for her wedding to James over a year ago. Our meeting point was a salubrious McDonald’s in north Lancashire, but my folio was just what the couple were looking for. So here we are, a year or so down the line, on a hot September day. Enjoy the highlights from Nicola & James’ wedding collection…

Unique exclusive wedding venue

The Oak Tree of Peover is a medium-sized wedding venue, and fully exclusive to each and every wedding. The bridal preparations were upstairs in the room above the lounge – so no transport and road works problems! Nicola was in great spirits, getting ready with her mum and sister, all expertly made up by Jaz. On cue, dad came to see his daughter before he gave her away…

An Oak Tree of Peover Wedding offers the photographer and the happy couple plenty of options for stunning couple photos. I love lots of natural sunlight and lens flare in my images and an Oak Tree of Peover Wedding in the sunshine produces plenty! We photographed some more sunset images too after the speeches, and just before the first dance…

Bartle Hall Wedding Photography – Krissy & Gary

bartle_hall_wedding_photography01

Here is an example of my being a Bartle Hall wedding photographer. Back in September, Krissy & Gary were married at this beautiful venue, situated just outside Preston. Being a Manchester Wedding Photographer, it made a change to get up the M6 to Bartle Hall – a venue I’ve worked at a time or two, to photograph Krissy & Gary’s Special Day. I felt a little in awe of the ‘crew’ list especially – Red Floral Architecture, Philip White (Videographer), Flossy & Leigh on Hair & Makeup, Ann McKavney from Eleventh Heaven, Paul Pashley and his band, plus Steve Mitchell DJ as MC for the day. Phew! Oh…and their wedding has just been featured in the new edition of the Little White Books Magazine!

If anything, Krissy & Gary’s wedding was always going to be about two things – fun, and flowers! You’ll see…

bartle_hall_wedding_photography02bartle_hall_wedding_photography03bartle_hall_wedding_photography04

I arrived at Bartle Hall on a slightly overcast morning to find the Red Floral team in full swing….from stairwell decorations, through the beautiful ceremony room, and into the Balmoral Suite, the décor just got better and better. I’ve worked with Red Floral a few times, and they never fail to impress me with their vision. The Balmoral Suite was just stunning…sitting there, all quietly waiting for the hustle and bustle to come. As Krissy and the girls arrived from hair and makeup at a local hotel, so did the bouquets – beautiful arrangements for Bride and Bridesmaids.

bartle_hall_wedding_photography05bartle_hall_wedding_photography06bartle_hall_wedding_photography07bartle_hall_wedding_photography08bartle_hall_wedding_photography09bartle_hall_wedding_photography10

With around 90 mins before the ceremony start, Krissy’s room was full on with girls getting ready, hair and makeup tweaks and final applications, champagne…more champagne, and me, photographing everything as it happened, plus dress, shoes, jewelry detail images….we were all busy!

Busy or not, I had time to nip down the corridor to catch Gary opening a wedding gift from his bride to be. I was a tad jealous…I love watches too…. 😉

As the guests gathered downstairs, and the general pace and noise levels subtly increased, we were nearly ready. A couple of last minute shots of Krissy on the stairs, gathering her nerves, and we off!

Having already cried twice, Krissy assured me that she wouldn’t need any more hankies for the ceremony. Wrong… 😉

The weather had picked up a bit, so we were off outside for drinks and canapés on the lawn….

With a brief twenty minute interlude, Philip and I went to photograph some bride & groom portraits, then a few family group shots…

…with all still running to schedule, we then went to see the final room design for the wedding breakfast. Wow!! Simple as….

On hand to act as MC for the afternoon, the bridal party were introduced to thunderous applause by the other guests. Start as you mean to go on, eh? Up first was Chris, Krissy’s dad. A brilliant speech, full of emotion (and jokes), leaving a slightly nervous-looking groom ‘to follow’. No problem for Gary, as also his two best men – funny, touching and entertaining. Then a slight addition to the speeches, as Sally, Krissy’s Maid of Honour stood and spoke a few kind words…

From the wedding breakfast it was off into party mode, with the brilliant Paul Pashley and his band and Steve sharing live music and DJ duties late into the night….

So, thanks for having me on board guys…..loved it, and I’m guessing the flowers have all been removed by now. Or…perhaps not…;-)

Mitton Hall Wedding in The Summer

Nicola & Dan booked me for their Mitton Hall Wedding over a year ago. I love Mitton Hall, and especiially working on a Mitton Hall Wedding. It’s one of the best wedding venues in Lancashire, and a firm favourite amongst wedding photographers. I’ve been a Mitton Hall Wedding Photographer a few times now, and am always looking forward to spending the day there. Nicola & Dan’s Mitton Hall Wedding was back in June, and a very hot day too. Bright sunshine is great for wedding guests, but, at times – not so great for us photographers though! Thankfully modern professional cameras can handle it. Here are some of the highlights from the day…

A perfect Lancashire Wedding Venue

Mitton Hall is a stunning Wedding Venue, and also very popular one. Owned by James’ Places, Mitton Hall is one of a portfolio of wedding venues the company own. Beautifully run, with friendly staff, the venue is simply one of the best in the Ribble Valley…and they really look after us wedding photographers when we’re working too!

Lancashire wedding flowers

It was great seeing Linda from The Flower Shop in Clitheroe, (sadly ducking out of shot this time). Her wedding flowers are always stunning, which is why the business has won so many awards, and is incredibly popular for Lancashire weddings. Linda & Jim are brilliant to work with, and look great on camera…sadly not this time… 😉

A Mitton Hall Wedding

As the ceremony time was approaching, Nicola and her constantly laughing entourage switched rooms. Her dress was duly re-hung on a stunning four poster bed. Time for a few more shots of it before Nicola out it on then… 😉 The nerves were kicking in a little, but the laughter was relentless. A handful of portraits later, I was off to meet Dan and his Groomsmen outside the Hall. With a nerve-steadying beer in one hand, Dan was busy greeting guests as they arrived. The sun was out, everything was on time  – a perfect Mitton Hall wedding was to commence.

Wedding Photos at Mitton Hall

As the guests were being seated for the wedding breakfast, we nipped upstairs onto the gallery for a few minutes’ shooting with that famous Mitton Hall chandelier. An icon in Lancashire wedding photography, every couple needs ‘The Chandelier Shot’ from their Mitton Hall Wedding.

Rivington Hall Barn Wedding – Suzanne & Danny

Rivington Hall Barn Wedding – Suzanne & Danny

Rivington Hall Barn Wedding

Highlights from Suzanne & Danny’s brilliant day at this unique Lancashire wedding venue

 

Bizarre coincidence

Suzanne & Danny booked me for their wedding having met me at The Great Northern Wedding Show, organised by the team at Little White Books. When I met Suzanne I had a curious feeling of deja vu, and was convinced we’d met before. But no. Fast forward a year to August and I was at Suzanne’s mum’s with ‘a football team of ladies’ getting ready for the wedding. In a moment’s conversation with Suzanne’s dad, it appears that she has a famous uncle in the music industry. When the penny dropped, I nearly dropped one of the Nikons! Suzanne’s uncle is John Foxx – and principle founder of the band Ultravox in the 1970’s! After a career spanning forty years, John is still gigging, recording, and still a massive influence to many in the electronic genre – Gary Numan to name but one. He’s my ultimate musical hero too, and a 100% Desert Island Disc artist should I ever get to be on the show (fat chance!) Alas, John couldn’t make the wedding. I was gutted! Anyway, shock over…back to the wedding!

Lancashire Wedding Suppliers

Suzanne & Danny’s wedding was going to be a church ceremony in Euxton, followed by a stunning reception at Rivington Hall Barn. On board with me for the day were Cedar House Productions – and, spookily, almost neighbours in the Prestwich/Whitefield area! Flowers were provided by The Gilded Lily – a very busy florist indeed! I’ve worked with them a few times over this past season. Wedding transport was ably provided by Horgans – one of the best in the business. Oh – and Suzanne herself is a very established make up artist in Chorley too, who was on make up duties at Jodie & Kane’s wedding around eight weeks’ later!

Stunning Lancashire Wedding Venue

This was toi be my first visit to the venue – and it was everything I’d been told. A stunning barn conversion, with a great, low-lit atmosphere, and perfect for weddings. Brilliant – time to pull out those fast prime lenses for some amazing available light photography for the details, and, later on the speeches. Rivington Hall Barn is a stunning Lancashire wedding venue, and worth checking out for your wedding day.

Wedding reception on the terrace

With the August sunshine beaming down on us, the guests were treated to gorgeous canapes and ice cream on the terrace. All quintessentially British Wedding fare, and perfect for the day. I never got chance to grab mine though…too busy! 🙁

Natural Bride and groom photos

After the wedding breakfast and speeches were over, we ventured into the grounds for a little fresh air and a few bride and groom photos. Nothing staged or forced, just a few natural images in the style I shoot, in around fifteen minutes. There were a few fairy lights on the trees already lit, so time for me to jump in the nettles and be brave! We were getting close to the evening reception by now – time for the first dance, a father and daughter dance, plus the chaos of the packed dancefloor when the two ladies from Volts Duo  fired up their saxaphone and violin and treated us to some live music accompaniment. And they were brilliant!
