Holmes Mill Wedding Photography Workshop, Clitheroe

Wedding photography at Holmes Mill, Clitheroe, Lancashire 

Well, I did it, I finally went on a wedding photography workshop - and it was mega! Not going to lie, as I walked down to Holmes Mill in Clitheroe with my rucksack on and laptop in my bag I felt as though I was walking to school on my first day - bricking it! 

The Shoot and Hustle workshop was taken by four photographers all of which I admire and look up to immensely; so it was awesome to be able to spend the day picking their brains and I really feel as though I learnt some new things that will be able to take me forward in to 2018 with a stride in my step. I love doing what I do, but I want to be the best I can be for both myself and my clients and I feel like yesterday really gave me a massive kick up the bottom! So watch out world. 

The workshop took place at the lovely Holmes Mill in Clitheroe, and it was also fantastic to meet so many other lovely photographers. We also got to take some photos of two wonderful couples so here are some of my favourites, and if you are getting married at Holmes Mill get in touch, I would love to hear from you!

Mandy and Andy's Tipi Wedding in Littleborough, Lancashire

Amanda is possibly one of the loveliest Bride's I have ever had the pleasure of photographing, so when she asked I would photograph her and Andy's wedding day I was super chuffed. They make such an amazing couple and even better for me they are so chilled out and love to party!

Daisy and Jake's wedding at Lancaster Brewery, Lancashire

Daisy and Jake's wedding at Lancaster Brewery, Lancashire

Let me just start by saying that this wedding had the MOST amazing wedding dress I have ever seen. Matt from Worthington Films will be testament to the fact that I actually cried a teeny bit when I hung it for the first time, SO up my street! So with that little intro no need to say that the rest of the day was just so beautiful.

Abbey and Lee's Wedding at The Villa, Wrea Green, Lancashire

Lee and Abbey have such a gorgeous little family and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to spend their wedding day with them photographing every special moment. 

Abbey spent the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids, Mum and children at The Villa. Hair was done by the lovely Sarah and make-up by the wonderful Sonara Parker and I have to say they all looked stunning.

Leanne and Ste's Wedding at The Stables, Lancashire

 

Lancashire Wedding photographer - Leanne and Ste at The Stables, Bury

Leanne and Ste had a wonderful wedding day at The Stables in Bury, Lancashire. They have such a gorgeous little family and it was beautiful to see them both tie the knot. The day was themed with stunning, bright sunflowers and cornflowers and although there were many rainy showers the sun made an appearance for us! Leanne got ready at The Stables. followed by an early morning wedding ceremony. Once the wedding nuptials were complete we headed out to the garden for bubbles and some group pictures before the heavens opened! 

After the wedding breakfast the kids (and some of the adults) were entertained by FlashBang Science! It was such a fab idea to keep the children entertained - but also learning a few things too! Lots of experiments, goo and slime! 

It was a gorgeous wedding day, thanks Leanne and Ste for all your hospitality. Here are a few of my favourite wedding pictures from the day! Please feel free to leave a comment for the Bride and Groom!

Anna and Dan's Wedding at The Shireburn Arms, Clitheroe

Relaxed Wedding in Clitheroe, Ribble Valley 

Anna and Dan's wedding day was so much blummin fun. They had an ice cream bicycle, a darts and pool competition - with actual darts shirts and a hilarious game of Mr and Mrs. I loved it from beginning to end! 

The wedding ceremony and reception were both at the Shireburn Arms, Hurst Green which is such a fantastic venue. Didier and his team always do such a good job of looking after guests (and suppliers) and the atmosphere is just so lovely and relaxed. Anna and Dan went for a rustic theme which just looked beautiful. 

After the ceremony the guests were treated to Holden's Ice Cream, before sitting down for a delicious wedding breakfast. After the speeches Nicholas Gunn from DFC entertained us, and did a little round of Mr & Mrs. Even though I nearly got my eye taken out a couple of times, totally loved the darts competition - it got very competitive at one point! 

I also had the pleasure of being joined by the lovely Kathryn from Delicious Photography, thank you Kathryn it was fab to work with you. 

Thanks for having me Anna and Dan, I had such a good day, you are the perfect couple, so happy. Here are a few of my favourites from the day. Enjoy! And please feel free to leave a message for the Bride and Groom at the bottom!

James and Natalie's wedding at The Fence Gate Inn

James and Natalie's wedding at The Fence Gate Inn

James and Natalie and I first met on their pre-wedding shoot a month or so ago when they broke the news to me - they hate having their picture taken! You would be surprised how many people say this to me, but yet it is such a big part of any wedding day. So I promised to make my time with them short but sweet and spend the majority of the day snapping away without them even realising!

Lorraine and Ste get married at The Swan Hotel, Newby Bridge

These two are just adorable. Lorraine and Ste are like a match made in heaven and they didn't stop smiling for the entire day. I pitched up in the morning and Lorraine was getting ready in the new Owl's Nest at the Swan Hotel, Newby bridge. The cottage was amazing - take a look here you can book for a self catering break. All the decor went perfectly with Lorraine's blush pink vintage theme.

Lisa and George's Wedding at Rudding Park, Yorkshire

Lisa and George's Wedding at Rudding Park, Yorkshire

Lisa and George are such a sweet couple, we clicked as soon as we met on their pre-wedding shoot and had a great laugh. I'd heard so many great things about Rudding Park near Harrogate but to be honest, you have to see this venue to believe it, its gorgeous. It's so visually beautiful inside, from the furnishings to the decor, every corner I turned I was wowed. If you are looking for a beautiful hotel wedding venue this is for you!

Lawrence and Sarah's Tipi Wedding in Yorkshire

Lawrence and Sarah's Tipi Wedding in Yorkshire

Lawrence and Sarah - where do I start? Well, I guess the first thing that I need to say is that their wedding day was just perfect. From the start they had said to me that they wanted it to be one big party and that's exactly what it was - everyone had fun from beginning to end, including me. I consider my style of photography as being fairly laid back and it suited this wedding day down to the ground.

Pre-Wedding shoot at Albert Docks - Liverpool

Relaxed Wedding Photographer, Liverpool 

It was such a pleasure to meet Katie and Dave, I will be honest, I was a little nervous for this shoot as I normally do most of my pre-wedding shoots in rural locations so shooting in a city was a new one to me, but I LOVED it! And hope you do many more. Katie and Dave get married at Isla Gladstone in July, and we hope to re-visit Liverpool in their wedding gear - can't wait!
