Eaves Hall Wedding Photography

Dyanne & Steven’s wedding photos from the stunning Eaves Hall near Clitheroe, Lancashire

“Fabulous job with our wedding photo’s, we are delighted and you’ve far exceeded our expectations. Some great pictures of Rupert too. You’ve captured some lovely memories for us ❤ xx”

Dyanne & Steven booked me to be their Eaves Hall Winter Wedding Photographer last summer. With Maid of Honour and chief wedding planner Kelley on board, Dyanne & Steven’s winter wedding at Eaves Hall was going to be stunning. Kelley had everything nailed down! Eaves Hall is set deep in the beautiful Ribble Valley and lives up to it’s claim to be ‘one of the finest exclusive use wedding venues in the north west’. This was to be my first visit to Eaves Hall, but 2017 is providing a few more return trips with the Nikons…

A typical bright January day promised lots of sunshine at least. This was going to be a good weather day….one way or another! When I arrived at Eaves Hall, I was met by the ever-smiling Dyanne, who was excited to show me both her wedding dresses! A day frock, and a night frock…the latter being a surpirse for Steven and the evening guests…

The morning was full of the usual hustle and bustle of wedding preparations. The flowers arrived, and the atmosphere was lowly rising in excitement as the hour or so ticked by…

Steven and Best Man Stu were on the floor above in Eaves Hall, taking ‘considerably less time to get ready than the girls’ they joked…

As the sun continued to thaw the gardens, it was time for me to head into Waddington, to St Helen’s Church for the ceremony. I’ve photographed at this church before – it’s a great place with a fantastic (cricket-mad) vicar, John.

This is Rupert (The Bear) –  Dyanne and Steven’s Labradoodle. His job was to carry the rings in church…oh, and photo bomb everything he could find….

After quietly arguing and bickering with each other throughout (serving) the meal, the two exploded into a row and one of them stormed off into the kitchen. The guests who were queueing up to berate the remaining waiter, suddenly held their bowed heads in their hands as ‘the penny dropped…’ and the young man emerged from the kitchen in full voice. Totally brilliant and had everyone fooled…

By now, the weather had turned too extreme to photograph my clients outside the hall – the snow was really coming down and all our vehicles were huddled together in the car park. So we did the next best thing. I got wet instead… 😉

As a surprise, a firework display was arranged for the guests. Snow or not – we weren’t going to miss this…
