On Saturday I was back at one of my favourite local venues Forrest Hills in Lancaster to photograph the wedding of Marisa and Lewis. Whilst the couple were not local the groom had gone to University in Lancaster, hence the choice of the venue.
I had already photographed the couple at Williamson's Park for an engagement shoot, where we had the most awful weather, so I was so pleased that we had perhaps the hottest day of the year so far on Saturday!
Both Marisa and Lewis got ready at Lancaster House Hotel, so we headed up there to get some wedding prep shots, before the wedding ceremony which was at The Free Methodist Church in Lancaster. This was my first time at this church, and I've got to say it was a great service, (an hour flew by) and from a photography perspective it was ideal as the lighting was perfect, sometimes in churches you really struggle and have to push your cameras to the limit due to how dark they are, but this church was fine.
As Marisa was from Glasgow the groom had arranged a surprise, a piper for them to leave the church too, and then they headed up to Forrest Hills in a vintage Rolls Royce.
As always the majority of the shots we take are natural and unposed, but I do spend about 20 minutes with the Bride and Groom going to different spots around the venue to get some great couple shots, which Forrest Hills lends itself too.
Here are a few shots from the day!
