Fiona and Anthony’s Wedding – The Inn at Whitewell, Clitheroe
Fiona and Anthony have to be one of the most laid back couples we have photographed. Their wedding felt like a summers family get together rather than a formal wedding. There was no fuss, no stress and even Fiona seeing Anthony before the wedding didn’t phase them. The stunning bright orange touches throughout the wedding along with the contrasting bright pink for the bridal party just elaborated the summers feel to the wedding and with all the bridal party sporting retro illumionous watches and bride and groom in orange converse the colours did not fail to impress.
The ladies began their morning in ‘The Piggeries’ which is an absolutely stunning cottage complex sat alongside the Inn at Whitewell. There were so many rooms to explore, and we did to make use as backdrops for our product shots before Fiona was banished upstairs ahead of Anthony and his groomsmen arriving to partake in a beautifully laid on lunch of breads, meats and chutneys as well as some beers.
The ceremony was taking place in the church which sits next to the venue. A quaint little church which is beautiful inside and out and has a real homely feel which suited this wedding perfectly. Laughter and smiles were overwhelming throughout the ceremony and we were able to take advantage of the great weather and capture the confetti shot as the Fiona and Anthony made their exit.
The bright colour theme flowed through into the reception marquee which as always was a dream to photograph in. Some fantastic speeches followed the wedding breakfast after which we stole away our bride and groom as well as some of the guests to go hunt out the stepping stones. Without hesitation they all piled onto the stepping stones for us to get some great shots of them playing about on them, As dusk fell we all headed back up to the Inn ready for the first dance. Inviting guests to join them on the floor mid song the dancefloor filled up and stayed full to dance the night away to the live band.
Such a fantastic wedding to be a part of and made effortless with this amazing couple
