Fence Gate Wedding ~ Claire & Tony

A wonderfully relaxed wedding with a wonderfully relaxed couple at the sumptuous Fence Gate at Fence, Lancashire. It was a perfect start to the day with warm sunshine and an endless green leafy landscape. Everything about the day was beautiful, happy and heart~warming, and Claire & Tony were surrounded by friends and family who were there to celebrate their love.

The ceremony was intimate and beautiful and their daughter Darcey, the prettiest flower girl just needed a little coaxing to walk down the aisle to meet her daddy, whilst everyone held their breath. She found herself too shy and ran into the arms of her grandma. Moments like this make your heart melt and remind me why I love weddings so much x

After the ceremony I whisked Claire & Tony away up onto the top of the hills above Sabden for their Bride & Groom portrait session. I like to think of this as an opportunity for them to have a little time alone and I shoot from a distance to begin with, as they laugh and chatter about being husband and wife at last.

The Wedding Breakfast was a feast with fabulous food and wine, as it always is at The Fence Gate. With rich and elegant surroundings like a scene from the Great Gatsby, the day & the celebrations flowed into the evening and so the dancing began and went on and on....
