I knew this was going to be wonderful day as soon as I arrived at Cat & Stuart’s home to photograph the bridal preps. Walking through the door I was greeted by Edith Piaf on the CD player (my daughter is named Edith partly after her) and immediately offered a cup of tea by Cat’s mum. The atmosphere during the morning was so relaxed I almost forgot we were getting ready for a wedding. Moving onto Brockholes Nature Reserve I caught up with Stuart and his family and friends for a few pre-ceremony shots. After the ceremony we took advantage of the fine weather and headed out for our couple portraits, taking in the beautiful lake and surroundings of Brockholes. Cat looked amazing in a stunning full length beaded dress and a delicate silk shawl handmade by Stuart’s sister. After a delicious BBQ in the afternoon the day was topped off with a live band at the evening reception. Another great wedding at one of my favourite venues x
