Lee & Kim

Lee & Kim’s amazing day was held at The Mill at Conder Green. We had met there the year previous at a wedding fair I was exhibiting at with Wedding Fayres Lancashire. The Mill at Conder Green is a stunning modern venue located next to the Lancaster Canal, nestled in the beautiful Lancashire countryside.

Pre Wedding Shoot

I met with Lee & Kim at Beacon Fell for their Pre Wedding Shoot, on a very cold and blustery afternoon. Having a Pre Wedding Shoot is an ideal time to get used to the camera and also gives us a chance to get to know each other which leads to more relaxed and natural images on the day.

Bridal Prep

Bridal Prep was taking place in the Bridal Suite at The Mill at Conder Green, and I arrived to find a slightly nervous bride to be. Wedding nerves were definitely on show but Kim was managing to hold it together well.  Wedding nerves are nothing new for me, I see it quite often.  I often find that Brides tend to calm down once the camera comes out as its a welcome distraction from the millions of worries running through their minds.  This worked with Kim and she was soon chilling out.

Kim’s Bridesmaids were upstairs getting ready together, luckily the room was huge and there was plenty of mirror space to go around.

I left Kim’s girls to catch up with Lee and his Groom Prep. Lee was in another room with all of his groomsmen.  Unsurprisingly, the groom prep room was a lot more untidy and chaotic than the girls room!

The Ceremony

The rustic looking ceremony room was the perfect setting with the chairs finished with lace ties, and once everyone was seated it was time for the ceremony to begin.

Evening Ceremony

As more guests arrived to join in the evening celebrations, the very talented Darren Robinson stunned everyone with his magic.  I was watching him do his routine and I could not spot his sneaky moves.
