Adam and Rachel’s Stunning Wedding At The Glass House Staining Lodge
When I met Rachel and Adam in their lovely home, they told me what their ideal wedding day looked like and that they wanted a totally unposed, relaxed, natural, documentary photographer to capture it. I knew I was a perfect match for this down to earth couple. So I was thrilled when they booked me for their Lancashire Wedding At The Glass House At Staining Lodge.
“Thank you once again for photographing our special day. The photos are amazing and exactly what we wanted them to be.”
Choosing a wedding photographer isn’t easy. There is so much to consider beyond just editing style and price. And what many couples don’t realise when they start looking, is that how a photographer approaches the day is just as important as their skillset. I know some people will love to have everything posed to perfection on their big day, and their wedding photos will look like they belong in a fancy magazine. And there is nothing wrong with that. But if that’s what you want for your big day, then I’m not the photographer for you.
For me, wedding photography is all about capturing the real love story shared with family and friends. I am not going to tell you what to do and when to do. Viewing your gallery I want you to feel the joy you felt, relive the fun you were having on your big day. You can view my portfolio and read about MY STYLE here.
Getting ready for the big day
When their big day came around, Rachel got ready at home, surrounded by friends and family, and even the wet weather couldn’t dampen their spirits. Meanwhile, Adam was getting ready in a hotel nearby, captured by my excellent second shooter, Jawad. I’m surprised at how well-rested Adam was, given the funky striped wall/carpet combo that instantly reminded me of the infamous carpet scene in Johnny Depp’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Still, maybe distraction is the key to keeping wedding nerves at bay. Either way, Adam and Rachel were ready to say their ‘I dos’ at The Glass House.
Adam and Rachel’s wedding at The Glass House Staining Lodge
As a Documentary Wedding Photographer in Lancashire, I get to see lots of fantastic wedding venues. Still, when I first heard about the weddings at Staining Lodge’s Glass House, I couldn’t wait to see what it had to offer. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The Glass House is a new, versatile, wedding venue with unsurprisingly ginormous windows that show off the picturesque Lancashire countryside and fill the space with gorgeous light. A photographer’s dream. Adam and Rachel’s ceremony was emotion-filled and perfect. From the moment Rachel was guided down the aisle by her mum, to when they said their vows.
Wet Weather and Wedding Photography at The Glass House, Staining Lodge
Wherever and whenever you choose to get married, the one thing you can never guarantee at a wedding is the weather. Wet weather is often a worry for a couple planning their big day, but if you’ve booked your wedding at Glass House, then you really have nothing to worry about. The light in therein incredible and bright. As a documentary wedding photographer, I’m used to going with the flow of a day. While wet weather may feel like a challenge for some, for me, it’s just another part of the story. Adam and Rachel did not want any cheesy, posy portraits however we braved the rain for a few family photos. Which I do think are always important for family members.
Wedding Party, Party, Party!
I loved so many moments from Adam and Rachel’s day, but the dancefloor was amongst my favourite! Being a documentary photographer means capturing the joy and energy of the day, and Adam and Rachel’s dancefloor had plenty.
