An Eaves Hall Wedding in Lancashire
Derbyshire may be my home, but when it comes to photographing weddings it’s more common for me to find myself loading up the car and driving all over the country. Back in July was just such an occasion as Marie and Karl had invited me up to Lancashire to photograph their Eaves Hall wedding. And what a fab looking venue it is, nestled in the beautiful countryside of the Ribble Valley.
Usually it’s the bride who has a room at the venue to spend the morning getting ready while the groom is at home with his best man working out how to get his windsor knot just right. This time though, everyone was staying at Eaves Hall which meant I was able to spend time capturing the morning preparations of both Marie and Karl. I like it when I’m able to do this as it gives a more complete story of the wedding day. It’s normally only possible if one of my second photographers has been requested.
After a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony, which saw Marie being preceded by their two little kids down the aisle, it was back into the lobby for drinks, hugs and congratulations. Keep your eyes peeled below for the moment their daughter gave Karl a kiss. Cute! At this point a few people started to gather outside the venue for the confetti throw. It had been a typical English summers day so far; grey and chilly. Today was especially windy though, so no sooner had the confetti left your hand it was whipped away across the front of the venue. Luckily for Karl and Marie though, as they weren’t totally covered in it as is usually the case!
It was soon time for people to find their seats on the seating plan and get comfortable for the speeches which had it all; jokes plucked straight from the internet, brilliantly funny stories from nights out and childhoods and emotional words that brought tears to many eyes. Exactly how wedding speeches should be. From here on it was fun and laughter right the way through to the first dance and beyond. Thanks to Marie, Karl and all of your guests for making me feel so welcome!
I’ll leave you with a few words from Marie:
Thank you so so much for the wedding photographs, they are just amazing! You captured the day perfectly. So many beautiful photos of our children and amazing and funny ones of the guests. We can’t thank you enough! Love some of the reactions on peoples faces during the speeches! It also made us remember so many things we had forgotten, really pleased!
We would definitely recommend you to others.
Thanks again, Marie & Karl. x
