Mitton Hall Winter Wedding Photographer

Kira & James’ wedding photos from their winter wedding at Mitton Hall near Clitheroe, Lancashire

“Mick they are amazing! We love them! We both even cried! Thank you so so much for an amazing job –  the day wouldn’t have been complete without you xx”

Kira & James had their fantastic winter wedding at Mitton Hall recently, allowing me this opportunity of demonstrating my being a Mitton Hall Winter Wedding Photographer. Completely different to a summer wedding, the light is low and crisp (where available) and the whole atmosphere of the wedding seems to be more intimate and ‘focused’. With seven bridesmaids getting ready, Kira’s preparation’s were full of laughter and banter…especially you Natalie 😉

The bridesmaids were all to wear stunning red gowns, a beautiful and traditional winter colour…

..and as the Prosecco flowed, the excitement was building. Not long to go now…

I caught up with James and the groomsmen in the bar downstairs, meeting and greeting the guests as they arrived for the ceremony…

…with a quick chat to the registrars, all was good to go. The guests entered the ceremony room and took to their seats. Meanwhile an almost-bursting Kira was coming down the stairs in the main hall, and taking station with the bridesmaids…

As the bride was announced by Michael, our MC and Manager for the day, I think I spotted a twinge of nerves from James….hmmm…

Then in came Kira, escotered by her proud dad…

As the ceremony ended, it was time to ‘kiss a thousand cheeks’ and enjoy a glass of bubbly…or a bottle of Sol…

With our (loose) schedule in mind, we ventured outside to photograph a few bride and groom portraits – nothing forced or cheesy. Kira and James just had some fun for fifteen minutes with little to no interruptions from me… 😉

Then it was time for a the confetti and a few family group photos…

…before heading back inside for the wedding breakfast.

As the guests took their seats, we had a few minutes to photograph that classic Mitton Hall image…

The speeches were brilliant – funny, emotional and entertaining. Even a seemingly nervous groom held the stage for quite a while. All bets were off for the sweepstake. A young lad scooped the top prize (to spend on a PS4). Nice one… 😉

As the evening drew in, it was time for the cutting of the (very hard!) wedding cake and the first dance, all perfectly run by Pat from Dancefloor Couture.
