Colshaw Hall Wedding, Ryan and Jen

Colshaw Hall is one of Cheshire’s most luxurious and beautiful wedding venues, its a Grade II listed building which has been lovingly restored by the Irlam family and set in its own grounds within a private estate used exclusively for weddings.
It makes a stunning backdrop for photographs, with its extensive grounds and beautiful interior, we were delighted to photograph Jen and Ryan’s wedding which took place on the 15th of October 2016. It was a beautiful crisp autumn day with the low sunlight peeping through the trees and the colourful palette of reds and oranges in the distance.

Neil and I  started the day with Jen and the girls whilst they got ready at her brothers house as Jen lives abroad.  Jen looked stunning in her beautiful lace and satin gown and her bridesmaids were lovely in dark purple dresses and her flower girls was just adorable in ivory with pink ribbons. We met Ryan and the boys  at the venue and they all looked dapper in navy blue suits. Jens  bouquet was exquisite with ivory roses and eucalyptus leaves.

It was a very beautiful ceremony followed by a wonderful reception, The attention to detail was just lovely as the room was full of stunning floral arrangements full of ivory and pink roses combined with hydrangeas.
We strolled around in the grounds with our lovely couple and used the building combined with the glorious autumn colours for the backdrop to our photographs.

Jen & Ryan’s Colshaw Hall wedding, was a perfect day, the party got into full swing with the fabulous band and everyone danced the night away into the twilight hours.
Neil and I wish Jen & Ryan a very happy Wedded life together!

Love Sam & Neil xxx

Lathom Chapel Wedding

Sharon & Kevin’s Lathom Chapel Wedding took place on the 14th of October 2016.

It was a beautiful crisp autumn morning and the Chapel of St John the Divine  founded by the Earl of Derby in 1500, looked very picturesque.
The chapel Stands within Lathom Park 3 miles from Ormskirk a small beautiful building, with Almshouses adjoining north side. It was the first time I had photographed a wedding at this chapel and I had been over the weekend before with my daughter to have a look around and to take some photographs. Its a very lovely area with plenty of photographic opportunities. The perfect choice for a wedding!

When Kevin first contacted me he told me he was a very keen landscape photographer and how much the chapel and its grounds meant to him and Sharon.

It was all very calm and peaceful in Sharon’s house in the morning, Sharon looked stunning in her very beautiful soft pink tulle gown and
the bridesmaids were absolutely lovely in deep purple dresses. The flowers for the bouquet were gorgeous soft pink hydrangeas and roses.

Neil had gone over to Kevin’s in the morning to capture Kevin and the boys getting ready.
Kevin  and the boys, all looked very dapper indeed with their very stylish grey suits.

The ceremony was very beautiful followed by a lovely reception in the Rufford Arms Hotel.

A very beautiful wedding, We hope you had a fantastic honeymoon,
Neil & I wish Sharon and Kevin every happiness in their marriage.

Mitton Hall Wedding

Lauretta & Ash’s Mitton Hall Wedding  took place on the 22nd September 2016. I’m finally catching up with my blog posts!
The couple were married at St Michaels & St Johns Church Clitheroe followed by a reception at Mitton Hall.

Mitton Hall is a magnificent 15th Century Manor House set in its own grounds in the beautiful, rolling countryside of Lancashire’s Ribble Valley 4 miles from the market town of Clitheroe. Both historic and contemporary, a unique combination that has earned a reputation that is second to none and established Mitton Hall as one of the best wedding venues in the area.
The building is a beautiful Manor House with wooden panelled rooms, a spacious reception area and balcony around the first floor.
There are extensive gardens to the front and the back of the building and the sun sets at the back making this a lovely area for the golden hour shots with the couple.

The morning bridal preparations ran smoothly at Mitton Hall. Lauretta, her mum and the girls had all had a leisurely morning  while Ashley the groom was getting ready at a relatives house nearby.
Lauretta looked absolutely stunning in her lace gown with a hand tied bouquet of pink and red roses. The bridesmaids looked lovely in soft shell pink.
Ashley looked very handsome indeed in his blue/grey sharply cut suit.

The ceremony was lovely and very emotional at  St Michaels & St Johns Church Clitheroe, their family priest had accompanied them from Liverpool which was lovely,  afterwards the guests made their way over to Mitton Hall for the reception.

I wish Lauretta & Ashley a blissfully happy marriage!

The bridal flowers were a lovely mix of  pink roses and purples which picked up the hits of pink and purple in the surroundings.
