What a fabulous day capturing some incredible moments at Samlesbury Hall. Samlesbury Hall is a historic house in Samlesbury, Lancashire, England, roughly 6 miles east of Preston. Built in 1325 by Gilbert de Southworth and was the primary home of the Southworth family until the early 17th century. The venue provides a fantastic place for your wedding with fabulous historic yet homely feel to it. This wonderful venue provides the perfect backdrop for wedding couples and sensational bridal prep for the bridal party in the Gatehouse.
I started the day with Emma and her bridesmaids in the Gatehouse which is a wonderful place for bridal prep. With a buzz in the air and the Prosecco flowing the atmosphere upbeat it was very apparent we were all in for a fantastic day. With the wonderful make up artist – Danielle a fantastic team helped Emma and her bridal party prep for the big day ahead. It is so great working with awesome wedding suppliers. My second shooter for the day Janina Brocklesby headed over to Ted to cover groom prep. Reports suggested the gents were in high spirits and eagerly awaiting the days antics. It was soon time for the ceremony and Samlesbury Hall is a fantastic place for a wedding ceremony & wedding. This lovely couple were soon married – Emma was led by her two year old daughter down the aisle ensuring the entire congregation were smiling with the sounds of aww coming from all. Confetti time was next and we were really lucky with the beautiful winter weather. All the guests enjoyed the drinks and surroundings before the wedding breakfast and it was great to capture natural moments throughout.
We were really lucky today and had a lovely day of winter sun. Although a little cold we headed out for some natural and relaxed photos. Emma and Ted were great together and I was so happy to be their wedding photographer, it was wonderful to hear throughout the day how positive they felt about their decision to ask me to capture their wedding. Samlesbury Hall is such a fantastic location for couples portraits and is one of my favourite venues to work at.
Where do I begin with this? Suddenly the dance floor was a light with a choreographed dance from the bridal party featuring Ted the groom who seriously showed the entire wedding party how to get down on your wedding day! Shortly after the cake cutting took place, Canada (Ted) and England (Emma) embraced in their first dance before the entire wedding party hit the dance floor and the party went on into the early hours.
A special thank you to my good friend Cheshire wedding photographer Janina Brocklesby for her assistance on the day.
