Melissa & Liam

A Family Wedding at Mitton Hall

Mitton Hall is part of the James Places wedding venue group and in a beautiful part of the Ribble Valley. One of my favourite venues, with its gorgeous surrounds, incredible architecture and chic interiors, had to wait for the celebrations while Melissa and Liam were wed near home in Tottington.

At Home Before Marriage at St Hildas

I love wedding preparations in the family home. Capturing the details such as the wedding dress, rings, flowers against the backdrop of the home often tells the history and story of a couple in a deeper way. Melissa’s beautiful wedding dress hung in a room; outside a photo of mum and dad on their wedding day. Marrying the two in one photo told of how the family legacy goes on. The wonderful family closeness, fun with the flower girls and the father of the brides first look all went to together to make the perfect preparations.

Wedding Reception at Mitton Hall

After a wonderful service at the modern catholic church of St Hildas in Tottington it was off in the wedding cars to Mitton Hall in Whalley. The Party Room had to wait as we nipped into the gardens to have twenty minutes of some natural, relaxed portraits. I like the portrait session to be very easy going – a simple wander outdoors – and that was perfect for Melissa & Liam. That gave time for the couple to mooch about with wedding guests before the beautiful family speeches at the wedding breakfast back in The Party Room.

Creative Wedding Photography

Before the cutting of the cake and the first dance in front of the Mr & Mrs lights I had an idea for a quick creative shot. Such an old, authentic yet chic interior gave the opportunity for me to use some off camera flash techniques for a five minute shoot under the beautiful chandelier in the main hall in Mitton. Before we knew it we had another contemporary wedding photo. Maybe this will go on the family home wall and see another wedding dress under it’s gaze some time.
