Lorna and Alan’s wedding photography post could have easily been posted by another photographer. We first met Lorna and her Mum at Carlisle Racecourse wedding fayre, they talked to us for a long time about how they loved our work and were going to contact us as they really wanted us to provide their wedding photography. It turned out we already had their wedding date booked with another couple so we could not provide their wedding photography. Within the next week the couple who had booked us for this date cancelled their wedding and as we knew where Lorna and Alan were getting married we contacted the Roundthorn who then put them in touch with them and the rest is history. (If you have your heart set on Eden Valley Photography to provide your wedding photography please book as soon as possible to avoid the disappointment Lorna and Alan originally had.)
Anyway, on to the wedding itself…
Lorna and Alan had the great idea for themselves and their guests to stay at Centre Parcs for the weekend of their wedding as all the guests had to travel for the wedding. This was a great way to make the most of the wedding weekend for everyone (and it meant Mike could capture the preparations of both the bride and the groom easily).
Lorna travelled with her Dad to St Lawrence's Chruch, Appleby, a church which is special to them due to family holidays as she was growing up. Lorna had chosen some fantastic Autumn colours for the Autumn wedding which looked great in the church and really brightened the day.
On the way to Roundthorn from the church the couple stopped off at Brougham Castle for some photographs, another location which is special to Lorna from her childhood. This gave the couple an opportunity to have a little quiet time alone together during the day.
Once at the hotel the couple and their guests enjoyed the grounds in the unseasonably nice weather before the wedding breakfast. The couple had the special touch of fireworks once it was dark to get which their guests adored before the first dance which got the evening party started.
We wish Lorna and Alan all the best with their future in Canada.
