Eaves Hall Wedding ~ Jane & Vinny
One Of Lancashire's Finest Wedding Venues
Eaves Hall in the Ribble Valley is an awesome venue. A beautiful country house set in acres of stunning grounds, it is the perfect setting for a wedding. Jane and Vinny had booked their wedding for late January and Jane was wanting snow ! What we got was wind and rain but that didn't dampen the day a bit. I arrived in the morning just after Jane and her bridesmaids had moved up to the main hall from the lodge where they had stayed the night before and the bridal prep was in full swing.
Groom Prep At The Spinning Block
Meanwhile over at Clitheroe at The Spinning Block Hotel part of Holmes Mill the groom prep was being covered by my second shooter and Vinny,his dad and his three best men were having a ball!
There was a general sense of lads, lads, lads ! The beers that Jane had sent over had been cracked open along with the fizz and they were all helping each other, tying ties and practising their speeches. The nerves didn't appear to be showing on Vinny's face ...yet.
Details & The Main Event
After getting some shots of the details, it was soon time for Jane to get dressed in her bridal gown and shoes and make her way down the fabulous staircase to meet her groom who had been waiting nervously for his bride to appear.
Everyone Loves A Confetti Shower
After Jane & Vinny had been pronounced man and wife and had shared their first married kiss it was time to head out for the confetti shower and some shots of them and their guests. More or less as soon as we got outside the heavens opened which unfortunately put paid to the planned photographs in the grounds so we had to make use of the porch in front of the hall instead !
Speeches,Tears & Laughter
Portraits done it was soon time for the wedding breakfast and following that, the speeches. With three best men to have their say there was plenty of laughter to follow along with more than a few tears ..... hey .... what's a wedding without tears ?
I love photographing the reactions of the bride and groom ( and the guests) during the speeches, it's raw emotion .......
Cake Cutting,First Dance & Party Time
After getting some romantic portraits of Jane and Vinny at the front of the hall, which always looks amazing lit up at night ( even the earlier rain played it's part by leaving a large puddle which gave us some great reflected light ) before long the evening "do" was upon us and it was time to cut the cake, catch the first dance then paaarrtay!!
