Wedding Photographer at Samlesbury Hall
This was my second time as a wedding photographer at Samlesbury Hall, a historic stately home, with the odd ghost or two in residence
Being a documentary wedding photographer, the main aim of my coverage is to provide couples with a lasting memory of their day without interfering. I strive to create images that not only tell stories on their own but also build a picture of the wedding day when viewed as a collection.
The wedding of Beth and Mike brought home the importance of capturing the spirit of the day. Unfortunately, Beth’s Mum was taken ill just before leaving for church in the morning and could not attend the wedding. It was difficult for Beth and Michael, with the conflicting emotions during the ceremony and reception. The support and love for each other, and that of their families and friends, was clear to see during an emotional day. I made it my job to capture the atmosphere, emotion and moments without imposing.
Finally, a few snippets from a very lovely email I received from Beth and Mike:
Thank you soooooo much for the photos…As we expected you captured some amazing moments on our wedding day. We were both amazed at how invisible you were on the day and yet the photos reveal quite the opposite, you were in the action capturing all the special moments. Cataloguing our day was even more crucial than I ever anticipated and I don’t believe anyone could’ve done it better. I never thought I’d say this, but I actually enjoyed being photographed for once in my life!!!
