Park Hall Wedding Photography – Katherine & Stephen

Wedding Photography at Park Hall Hotel Chorley

2020 has been a ‘funny’ year so far; a new storm each week for the first couple months, and then Covid-19 lockdown. With most of my remaining 2020 wedding couples having to reschedule their wedding to much further into this year, 2021 or even 2022 (if you’ve been affected by this whether you’re a current client of mine or not, my virtual door is always open if you would like to have a chat about anything or whether I am able to help).

I was lucky enough to have been able to photograph  Katherine & Stephen’s wedding in March 2020 at Park Hall Hotel in Chorley, and just before lockdown was put in place. This was a truly lovely, and somewhat surreal, wedding spent with Katherine and Stephen, for the very last wedding ceremony at Park Hall Hotel before the country went  into lockdown at the end of March. It felt a privilege, and quite honestly inwardly a little sad for me, to document a special day which none of us knew, from the registrars to the staff of Park Hall, when any of us would be back. However, that didn’t dent the energy of myself or this really fantastic couple and their guests. Everyone was in high spirits and there were plenty of smiles all round.

The Park Hall Hotel boasts gorgeous gardens and a lake within the grounds, perfect for romantic couples photographs and following the lovely ceremony in the Medieval Banquet Hall, we made use of these areas for some shots of the happy couple. This wedding was such a beautiful wedding to be a part of, and I’m so happy for them both that it was still able to go ahead despite all the worry leading up to the day. Congratulations to such a wonderful couple and their families.

Shaw Hill Hotel Wedding Photography – Victoria & Jamie

Wedding Photography at Shaw Hill Hotel Chorley

On a wet day in September this lovely couple tied the knot. Victoria and Jamie were married in the Gold room at Shaw Hill Hotel in Chorley. The Gold room is a wonderful venue for any wedding, it is beautifully decorated with stunning views out across the Golf course.

Following the ceremony all the guests retreated to the conservatory where drinks and canopies were served. The beauty with Shaw Hill as a wedding venue is that, even when the weather does its worst, there is always somewhere dry, comfortable and bathed in beautiful natural light (which is an added bonus for us photographers) for the guests to enjoy themselves. The staff are also amazing as they will assist in any way they can, so the couple have the perfect day, and on this occasion it even included vacuuming up a tonne of confetti!

Time flies on a wedding day and it wasn’t long before the guests were seated for the wedding breakfast and it was time for me to leave. Victoria & Jamie’s wedding was a lovely happy day that wasn’t affected by the weather. I wish them both all the very best for their future together.

Devonshire House Wedding Photography – Joanna & Christopher

Wedding Photography at Devonshire House Chorley

Rain on your wedding day has long been considered a symbol of good luck. It is based on the Hindu idea that wet knot is harder to untie. So, if the amount of rain on Joanna and Christopher’s wedding day was anything to go by, then this couple will have a very long and happy marriage. It rained the entire day and was one of those days that was very challenging, but so very worth it. Joanna and Christopher didn’t let a little rain spoil their day though. Joanna beamed with joy all day, from the second she arrived at Devonshire house until I left them later that afternoon, her happiness and laughter were infectious.

Stanley House Hotel Wedding Photography – Annie & Paul

Wedding Photography at Stanley House Hotel Mellor


Annie and Paul were married in St Mary’s Church in Chorley and celebrated at Stanley House Hotel in Mellor. The day began with the groom and bride preparations. I love this part of the day, all the excitement and quality time spent together before the day really starts to get going. While I headed over to the girls, my friend and second photographer, headed over to the chaps to cover their preparations. The weather unfortunately wasn’t on our side, but that didn’t dampen any spirits. Annie’s preparations were laid back and included presents for all the bridesmaids.

The couple chose St Mary’s church in Chorley in which to marry, as it is their regular church and it meant a lot to them to be married there. Following the ceremony everybody headed over to Stanley House Hotel so the wedding celebrations could begin. The rain continued to fall but we were lucky enough to be able to find a few gaps in the weather to get some outdoor shots in the stunning grounds of Stanley House.

Here are a few photos of Annie and Paul’s fantastic wedding…..
