Kelly & Kyle's colour spectacular

Last Saturdays wedding with Kyle and Kelly at the Ashton Memorial in Lancaster's Williamson Park, was something of a colour spectacular. From the bridesmaids in orange, to Kelly arriving in a red camper van, the boys in their yellow plimpsolls, right through to the pink, yellow and orange bouquet and the fab orange and yellow Dr Suess style cake! Wow!
It was just a short, 3 hour day for me, but we sure crammed some good, fun, photography time in, and thankfully avoided the rain!

Dan and Victoria

I had been looking forward to Dan and Victoria's wedding since I first met Dan in the bar of The Dukes, Lancaster, and he told me he was hoping to have a fire eater at the reception! How cool is that! It was also going to be at Mitton Hall, one of my very favourite locations - an amazing character full location near Clitheroe.
And a fab day it turned out to be, Dan spoke his vows like he was the proudest chap in the world, and Victoria and he were both just such fun to photograph. The fire-eater turned out to be a rather wonderful stilt-walking, fire-eater no less, Andy King (of Xtreme Entertainment), who also dazzled and amazed guests with some quite nifty card tricks! Andy provided me some great photo opportunities, and comes well recommended for anyone else who might be planning a wedding that's just a little bit different!
Guests mingled in the Mitton Hall grounds after the ceremony and were served up some delightful ice cream made and delivered on the day by local ice cream maker supreme Mrs Dowson.  
Best wishes Dan and Victoria, you guys were great!
