Leighton Hall Wedding Photography
It was my first visit to the gorgeous Leighton Hall near Lancaster. It feels very Pride and Prejudice when you travel down the sweeping driveway. This incredible venue is perfect for those wanted a relaxed but impressive venue. It’s half family home, half stately house and surrounded by amazing gardens. It was not the type of venue Carmen and Ben had planned but when they first saw it then realised it was perfect for their wedding day.
Love bloomed with this lovely pair at work. A few thousand emails later and with daily offerings of chocolate muffins Ben stole Carmen’s heart. A romantic proposal in Bath followed and then it was full steam ahead on the wedding planning front! Carmen and Ben learned lots of wedding planning lessons – don’t spend your budget on things that aren’t important to you!
The wedding day itself was a scorcher! I headed to the gorgeous holiday cottages that Carmen and her bridesmaids were staying in whilst my second photographer Dan went to meet Ben and the boys. Before long it was time to head off for church where Ben was waiting at the end of the aisle with a single red rose for his wife to be! Such a romantic.
After the ceremony we headed off to Leighton Hall where the guests enjoyed strolling around the gardens with a drink in hand whilst we made the most of the beautiful grounds for pictures. As the sun set everyone danced the night away in the beautiful house.
Thank you Carmen and Ben for inviting me to be a part of your day. Here’s a selection of my favourite images. Thank you to Dan from Dan Wills Photography for assisting me on the day.
