Marsh Hall Farm Wedding Photography
1 week. 4 weddings. All starting with Joanne and Brendan who asked me to be their Marsh Hall Farm wedding photographer all the way back in the summer of 2013. I like organised couples, and these two were most definitely organised. Seeing as Brendan manages large scale events for a living, it came as no surprise that this was a superbly prepared wedding and it went like a dream. To top it off, we got spectacular weather for the reception at Marsh Hall Farm, making for some fantastic couple photos and a very happy wedding party!
I met Joanne at her parents house in Chorley where the tunes were pumping and the prosecco was flowing. This lot were up for a party! The bridal prep shots are some of my favourite of 2014 thanks to some amazing natural light that just lit Joanne up perfectly. Things slowed to a more sensible pace for the church service (as you’d expect) and I was once again allowed un-resticted access within the church to do my thing.
We then made the 40 minute drive out to Marsh Hall Farm which is between Blackpool and Preston. A converted barn on a proper working farm and we arrived with the sun. Result. Couple shots in the bag, food served (including blue champagne as a nod to Joanne and her dad who are big Manchester City fans), speeches done and a set of rather drunk best men and ushers delivered some of the best ‘groomsmen’ shots of the year before the first dance took place and I mad my way back down the M6.
I really enjoyed editing this set of images, obviously the sun helps, but this was a cracking wedding which I loved photographing mainly due to Joanne and Brendan being very relaxed about the photos (they just let me get on with it) and a set of guests who got right into the spirit of the day and had an amazing time.
So here’s Joanne and Brendan. Music by the awesome M83, photos by me…
