Niall & Hannah {sneak peak}

A slight deviation today whilst I feature Niall & Hannah's charming wedding venue in the beautifully untouched Forest of Bowland. St. Michaels Church at Whitewell is snuggled in some fantastic scenery, is adjacent to one of the finest Inns in the land (The Inn at Whitewell) and has a vicar who was happy for me to shoot as much as I wanted. More from Niall and Hannah's gorgeous day later, but for now, here's to St. Michaels, Whitewell.

Steph & Zac {Lancashire Wedding Photographer}

Ah, I just loved Steph & Zac's wedding day. From the off when I arrived at Steph's parents house in Lancaster I was made to feel as welcome as an old friend, and there were just so many big smiles throughout the day it would have been impossible to have come away without one too!
The service took place at St. Pauls Church in Scotforth, Lancaster, just up the road from where Steph was getting ready, and one of my favourite church wedding venues in Lancaster. It's such a pretty venue with great grounds for the pictures and it helps that the vicar is just a little bit bonkers (in a really good way!)
The rain just about held off, with only a few short drizzly spells, and we mostly enjoyed some lovely summer sunshine. The beautiful bouquet and flowers were once again provided by the fabulous Flowers by Catherine.
From Scotforth we went onto the very popular Garstang Country Hotel for the reception and wedding breakfast part of the day, where we heard some great speeches before the meal moving Steph and Zac, family and friends alike from fits of laughter to some very touching tears in the briefest of moments.
Enjoy the pictures... (click a picture if you want to see it larger)

Cara & Jordan's Stanley House Wedding {Lancashire Wedding Photographer}

Stanley House in Mellor, Lancashire is a superb wedding venue and the one chosen by Cara and Jordan to celebrate their big day. Pink was a big theme for the day, with some amazing flower work by Lilybets of Hoghton

All Cara's work on her wedding breakfast room paid off as the room like stunning.

It poured down all the way on both my drive over there and back home again, but amazingly against all the odds (and weather forecasts) the sun came out over Stanley House and and shone throughout!
Here's a selection of my favourites from the day... (click a pic to see it larger).
