Laura & Greg

An October Wedding at West Tower

West Tower is an exclusive wedding venue. When Laura and Greg booked their wedding I knew it would be just the bride and the groom, their wedding guests….and me. And I, as a wedding photographer at West Tower, loved it because everyone was part of what was a brilliant day.

Wedding Photography At West Tower

Shooting weddings at West Tower always excites me because the building itself is so quirky and even though it is tucked away – ‘a secluded sanctuary in the Lancashire countryside’ – you have grounds with a beautiful vista from which you can see for miles. It’s an amazing place to shoot natural, documentary wedding photography of the guests as they enjoy this intimate space as well as beautiful bride and groom portraits as the sun sets across a perfectly flat vista. 

Photographing A First Look Wedding

Laura and Greg both started the day with groomsmen and bridesmaids in The Brown Cow just up the road but then, after a walk along the lane to West Tower moved to the beautifully spacious rooms at West Tower. The bridal suite is a fantastic space and this is where Laura and Greg did a First Look. Quite rare these days a first look is where the bride and groom meet before the ceremony. This makes it a truly personal moment and, as a photographer who loves capturing the emotion of the day, this was no exception. Greg was a confident, bouncy guy and to see and capture this emotional moment is exactly why I am a wedding photographer.

Natural Wedding Photography

Even after the first look the emotion of the wedding day never let up. After the beautiful words and the exchange of wedding rings in the ceremony the guests spilled out outside. The light was beautiful even as I captured everyone on the steps and then a just some natural shots of everyone as they began to party. Laura and Greg had some easy going portraits with that beautiful backdrop while the guests headed for their places at the wedding breakfast. Beautifully adorned with Laura’s own designs and decor, the ballroom at West Tower was the perfect place for a bubbly breakfast and wedding reception. I love natural wedding photography and Laura and Greg and their friends and family only had to be them selves to make it all happen.
