Where to Get Married in Lancashire for the Perfect Wedding Album Memories
Have you been giving some thought to where to get married in Lancashire? This beautiful north west county certainly has its fair share of wedding venues. But which will prove the most appealing for your wedding album?
As an experienced Lancashire wedding photographer, I have come to know many of the most popular wedding venues Lancashire has to offer. I have my favourites, because some of the venues really do lend themselves to spectacular wedding photography.
So, if you are looking at the best wedding venues Lancashire wide for the most wonderful wedding album memories, please read on for my personal pick of the bunch.
Bartle Hall Hotel
The venue, a charming country house hotel and coaching barn, is swathed in sprawling Lancashire countryside and surrounded by sixteen acres of woodlands and stunning landscaped gardens, ideal for creating memorable wedding photographs.
The hotel itself offers fifteen splendid bedrooms, perfect for wedding guests or the wedding party. But it’s the enchanting features that I particularly like as a wedding photographer. The historic beams, the fireplaces, the ambient lighting. And outside there’s the lovely patio, ideal for group shots on summer evenings.
When I shot Alexandra and James’ wedding at this venue it really was a joy. The natural light flooding in to the ceremony room coined the sense of happiness beautifully, whilst capturing the couple naturally interacting in the outstanding grounds of the hotel creating an album full of treasured memories. Truly one of my favourite wedding venues in Lancashire.
The West Tower
A West Tower Ormskirk wedding has to be feature as one of the most popular on every Lancashire bride and groom’s wish list.
As a regular at this venue, I’ve earned a spot on the preferred wedding photographer list. The West Tower is a venue I know very well, and I have enjoyed shooting many outdoor and indoor weddings here.
The fantastic landscaped gardens, countryside views, characterful spaces and romantic pagoda make for the most wonderful wedding photography backdrop. And inside, the bridal suite and top class accommodation make the venue most inviting for the bridal party and guests alike.
In the warmer months, the ceremony can take place beneath the pagoda, with guests invited to mingle over drinks and canapés on the terrace. Again, perfect for the natural wedding photography style.
If you’re looking for wedding ceremony and wedding reception venues in Lancashire, the West Tower will accommodate both, with its amazing ballroom providing the perfect setting for the wedding breakfast, speeches and cutting of the cake.
Shooting the Lancashire West Tower wedding of Amy and Gary here, a glorious summer event with a great deal of fun and laughter, was a superb experience.
And then with a contrasting winter backdrop, Katie and Owen’s West Tower wedding took place against dynamic winter skies.
