The county of Lancashire is, to me, what it means to be Northern. I know that where I live is now classed as Greater Manchester, but in my heart I’ll always be a Lancashire lass.

The towns of Lancashire have their own charm. There’s Clitheroe, with its castle and the beautiful Mitton Hall. This is a 15th century manor house with views over the Ribble Valley. The town of Belmont, near to Bolton, is surrounded by reservoirs and fields. I love historic Lancaster with the truly fabulous wedding venue, Ashton Memorial, right in the middle of Williamson Park. Take a look at the beaches of Blackpool, Lytham and St Annes if you want a coastal wedding. My favourite Lancashire beach hotel is undoubtedly the Midland Hotel in Morecambe. An art deco dream of a hotel adn a must-see.

If you are thinking of having a Lancashire wedding then you will be spoilt for choice. There’s the rustic charm of Beeston Manor, with its fabulous farmland views and exposed stone walls. Have a look at Rivington Hall Barn, with its showstopping Saxon beams and manicured gardens.

There’s the old world charm of the Last Drop Village and the spectacular Hoghton Tower.

If you are wanting a church wedding, some of my favourites churches are in Lancashire. My very favourite long-haired biker vicar was based at a Belmont church.

The whole county is a photographer’s dream. From Saddleworth to Horwich and Lytham to Lostock.

I’ve featured a couple of Lancashire wedding venues to give you an idea of my work. If you want to chat more about your wedding please do not hesitate to contact me. Alternatively, if you would like to book me to photograph your wedding please do so here.
