I was super excited to hear Bev and Marks intimate wedding plans at Kilhey Court, Lancashire. The didn't want the stress of a huge wedding and wanted something relaxed that was for their closes family and friends during the week where they could get married, have great food and just enjoy the company of their loved ones.
Morning PREPARATIONS at Kilhey Court, Lancashire.
I arrived at Kilhey Court a little later than my usual gig as with this being a smaller wedding it also meant fewer hours, though I won't complain as the extra hours in bed are always welcome! Both Bev and Mark got ready in the same room with their daughters which was nice being able to capture natural moments of them both during the morning with Mark only leaving once she was ready to get into her dress.

Once Bev was ready it was all systems go as she headed over to the ceremony. The stair case at Kilhey Court allows for some great images as you make your way over so along with a wider image of her heading down the stairs I was able to capture a well timed moment of her taking her final few steps and showing her awesome wedding shoes!
The service was lovely with only a handful of family and friends there to smile and cheer them on. With lots of laughter and smiles they were soon Mr and Mrs and couldn't look happier! The family couldn't wait to greet them after the service allowing for some great pictures of everyone before they headed back over to the bar area to celebrate before their wedding breakfast. This time allowed me to capture some documentary shots of everyone before taking them both out into the grounds to take some portraits.
After some fun portraits it was back inside for everyone to have their meal and that was my cue to leave! It really was a pleasure to capture such a small, intimate wedding. It just shows that you can still have an amazing party even with a handful of your nearest and dearest!
