Wedding photography in Lancashire: Amy and Scott’s wedding at St Mary Magdalene Church, Burnley and Whalley Abbey, Clitheroe
A big congratulations to Amy and Scott who tied the knot on Easter Sunday! Amy got in touch in early 2012 to enquire about wedding photography packages. She just so happened to stumble across my wedding photography Facebook page via a mutual friend. I was extremely excited to be asked to be their photographer – they had planned to have their ceremony at St Mary Magdalene Church, Burnley followed by a fabulous reception at the infamous Whalley Abbey, Clitheroe.
Despite having more than twelve months to go at the time of booking, 31st March 2013 was very soon nearly upon us. Being Easter weekend, we were hoping for a nice day, however the week previously had seen heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures! Fortunately however, by Sunday the snow had melted and it was a pleasant day.
The day started at Amy’s sister’s house in Burnley. Bridal preparations were in full swing when I arrived – lots of lovely ladies being pampered. A striking array of wedding flowers were sitting in the kitchen, courtesy of Paul Lomax Wedding and Event Florist, Chatburn. Amy looked stunning in her dress which was from Amelia’s, Clitheroe and the bridesmaids wore classic midnight blue. It wasn’t long before a beautiful vintage car from Malvern Wedding Cars arrived to transport the girls to the venue in style.
Following a lovely ceremony, the guests showered the newlyweds with confetti and wished them well, and shortly after headed over to Whalley Abbey. Guests were treated to a candy floss and popcorn cart courtesy of the Icicle Tricycle Company which as you can imagine, went down a storm with the kids! The venue was dressed beautifully, there was lots of candlelight to complement the royal blue theme, and a huge garland of fairylights cascaded from the wall behind the top table. The wedding cake by The Little Bird Bakes took pride of place by the window.
Prior to the wedding breakfast, we took advantage of the amazing scenery at the Abbey for photographs, we were spoilt rotten for photo opportunities! Many thanks to the best man and ushers for helping me to get all of the guests outside for a very chilly group photo!
Amy and Scott’s wedding had all the ingredients for a perfect wedding – a very happy couple, lots of lovely family and friends ready to celebrate, a stunning venue, dry weather and a good party afterwards! I really enjoyed being a part of your day… congratulations to you both again and best wishes for a happy future! x
