Gemma and Garth – Stanley House Hotel near Blackburn

Stanley House Hotel Wedding Photography

Gemma and Garth’s fabulous wedding took place in a very snowy Lancashire, on the first day of spring!  Most of us were convinced it was the middle of winter, but spirits were high and everyone had an amazing day.

We started the day at Gemma’s mum and dad’s gorgeous house in the country, not far from Ormskirk.   We had planned to take some pictures of Gemma with her horse, but the arctic temperatures put an end to that idea!

Then it was on to St Wilfrid’s Church at Standish and time to catch up with Garth and the boys – Craig, Andrew, Daniel and Richard.  Two best men at this wedding, Andrew and Daniel. Double trouble ahead for Garth in the speeches!

Gemma’s dress was absolutely amazing – great choice Gemma. And dad Mark is looking extremely dapper also!

Thanks to the vicar for dodging out of the way for this one.

St Wilfrid’s is a fantastic church, but because of the layout it was difficult for Dave to find a clear view of Gemma, and the addition of the palm leaves for Easter made his life very interesting!  He loves a challenge.

I had a great view from the back though!  Just look at that dress.  Maggie Sotero I think – always my favourite designer.

The new Mr and Mrs Woods then set off in their super-duper Rolls Royce for a twenty minute drive to the reception venue, Stanley House Hotel.  An hour later, they arrived!!!  Note for prospective brides and grooms – make sure your chauffeur has carefully worked out the route before setting off – relying on Satnav doesn’t work sometimes!

Stanley House Hotel is a great place for wedding photography, but we didn’t get chance to use much of it this time because of the bitterly cold wind and snow.

Not a good idea to let Dave get close to a table full of goodies like this one!

After the wedding breakfast we made good use of the lovely bridal suite at Stanley House.

And then back into the main hotel to play with the staircase.

There was no way that the snow and ice were going to stop Gemma and Garth’s family and friends enjoying themselves!  Thanks again for inviting us to share your day – we enjoyed every minute!  🙂
