Last August I photographed the most stunning, stylish wedding at The Great Hall at Mains – and I am FINALLY getting around to blogging it!!
Kat + Ryan’s wedding was an absolute dream to photograph… A stunning lace dress from LuLu Browns, the most divine florals you’ve ever seen, beautiful venue, fab wedding party and of course all topped off by the fact that they make such a gorgeous couple!!
Their day started off with bridal preparations at Kat + Ryan’s home in Darwen, followed by a Catholic Ceremony at the Pleasington Priory Church, then on to the Great Hall at Mains for the reception! When I arrived at the Great Hall I think my jaw literally hit the floor when I saw the decor (cue me barely being able to contain my excitement!) Fairy lights, a heap load of candles, beautiful florals which consisted of hydrangeas, David Austin roses, dahlias and eucalyptus in vintage urns as the centrepieces, ornate frames with names of trees as table number alternatives to tie in with Ryan’s job (he’s a tree surgeon!) and not a chair cover in sight! (anyone that knows me knows I pretty much despise chair covers.)
Kat’s bridesmaids all looked absolutely beautiful in their pale grey dresses and all the lads looked very dapper in their blue suits!
Although the day started off with rain, the sun made an appearance in the evening and we were blessed with the most beautiful light, which was perfect timing for their couple portraits!
Kat + Ryan finished the night off dancing to Fans by the Kings of Leon for their first dance, which was brilliant to photograph as it was honestly like they were the only two people in the room, they really looked like they were having the best time!
Thank you both so much for having me!! Here are a few of my favourites from their day…
