Another wedding under my belt! I was local to home for this one documenting the lovely wedding of Daniel and Jenna. We met last year to talk over the details of their day whilst looking through my portfolio and albums. They loved my work and asked if I would be part of their big day, I was already excited!
So at 2pm I arrived in good time to document the build up before the ceremony began.
The church was ‘The Parish Church of Saint Thomas the Martyr Upholland’ and the building
was absolutely breathtaking inside and out. Daniel and most of the guests were having
a couple of drinks and a bite to eat at the White Lion across the road before the
special occasion kicked off. Jenna soon arrived in a red classic double decker bus
along with the bridal party as the remainder of the friends and family made their
way to their seats. I captured a couple of shots before I took my place at the front
near Daniel and his best-
Jenna walked down the aisle with her dad and they were smiling away. The happy couple
were then soon reunited and saying those all important vows to each other. There
were lovely readings spoken by chosen guests and rings were exchanged. A final blessing
was done before they signed the register to seal the deal as they were husband and
wife. I made my way to the back of the church as they walked back down the aisle
Everyone headed onto the bus to begin the 20 minute journey to Heskin Hall which was the reception venue where the afternoon celebrations were to take place. As they all arrived at the stunning Lancashire wedding venue I arranged them at the entrance to the building to conduct the confetti shot and then around the rear for the formal group photographs. It didn’t take too long and the newly weds even enjoyed a little time with their family and friends before the wedding breakfast.
There wasn’t any speeches and instead Daniel and Jenna asked the wedding coordinator to say a few words on their behalf. Afterwards we headed outside to have a walk around the venue to capture the more intimate shots of them two together. They said they weren’t that good in front of the camera but actually it turned out that they were absolutely fine. I try and keep it as informal and relaxed as possible whilst smiling a lot…obviously without looking like a right weirdo!
The weather was just perfect offering the best conditions available when it comes to a couple’s wedding day. The first dance soon arrived as they took to the dance floor for the first time as Mr & Mrs Gallagher. I hope they had such a memorable day and I wish them both all the happiness in the world. I also hope they have a wonderful time in Rome on their honeymoon
