I first met Kim and Chris while I was exhibiting at The Shireburn Arms opening day last year. We had a little chat but sometimes wedding fairs and opening days can be a little tricky to have lengthy conversations, so I invited them down to my little wedding den and we talk over their plans over a brew and cake.
Award Winning Wedding Preparations
The day started at The Shireburn Arms in the North West where Kim and her bridesmaids were getting ready. She had an awesome award winning team to do the make up and hair, Sonara Parker and Duncan Fisher who make the morning so much fun with their infectious personalities. When I asked to take pictures of Kims wedding shoes I was in total awe to see she was wearing the coolest cowboy boots on her big day!!
Showtime in the North West.
The wedding service took place in the ceremony room which looks out to the stunning countryside of Clitheroe. It's the perfect, homely setting for a wedding with stunning views and with all the James Places venues, amazing service from the team who help run the day.
Kim and Chris were all smiles during their service and their dog Timmy looked super proud as they said their "I do's". After the service, we headed outside to take some photos though we had to battle the winds as it was only a few days since storm Doris and it seemed she was just around the corner waiting to strike again!
In the evening the guests played with the pool and foosball tables that made for some great images. Capturing people naturally in a documentary way is awesome as you get a real feel of the day and it tells the story perfectly!
Wedding Photography at The Shireburn Arms.
The Shireburn Arms, North West, is such a stunning venue and has a lot to offer. From a homely ceremony room and bar area to beautiful, stylish bedrooms for getting ready in. A little smaller than some of the other offerings from James Places but that all adds to the character and charm of the place!
The grounds and local walks around the area offer lots of opportunity for wedding portrait shots and for family photos and the large windows in the ceremony and reception room mean you get lots of natural light even in the winter months.
If you're getting married at the Shireburn Arms and would like a North West wedding photographer to capture your day in a natural way then be sure to get in touch!
