Shireburn Arms Wedding

Highlights from Emma & Jason’s wedding day at this stunning Lancashire wedding venue

 

A Shireburn Arms Wedding

I do love a good Shireburn Arms Wedding. Emma & Jason booked me to be their Shireburn Arms Wedding photographer a good year or so back. It was to be my first visit to this charming (and very popular!) Lancashire wedding venue. I was really looking forward to traveling light, shooting on mostly 50mm and 24mm prime lenses. Here are some of the highlights from their brilliant Shireburn Arms Wedding. Obviously, since we were in deepest Lancashire, it was raining when I arrived…but the forecast was looking promising. Fingers crossed…

Classic English Rose Bride

I caught up with Emma as she duly arrived at The Shireburn Arms. And Emma looked stunning too! She’d been ‘down the road’ having her hair and makeup preparations in the capable hands of Sonara Parker, and wanted a little privacy. This English Rose was a little nervous about being the centre of attention, but the with girls around her, the atmosphere was becoming very excitable and the nerves were dwindling. Mine weren’t…lol

Wedding Ceremony in Lancashire

After the ceremony, we all ventured downstairs into the snug. Again, the rain was sporadic, so we held off photographing any family group photos for an hour or so. The rain didn’t relent, so we quickly got the photos taken inside. Working with the 50mmand24mm combination, I was able to move around the guests quickly and unobtrusively, capturing Emma & Jason’s big day as it happened…all live and unstaged. Suddenly the weather lifted and it was looking promising for the rest of the day. Great news…off we go into the speeches before the wedding breakfast…

Speeches at a wedding

The speeches were brilliant, funny, emotional. Everything you’d expect from this couples’ family and friends. Mark, the wedding manager became part of the speeches too…inadvertently calling Jason by the wrong name. We’ve all done it , but fair play to you Mark for being a great sport…
