Faith & Chris finally got married!
So Faith and Chris booked me back in 2019 for their 2020 wedding, and after several postponements, and two venue changes, the day finally arrived in September 2022. Nothing was going to stop them, even a flat tyre enroute to the wedding, or the threat of torrential rain…
They chose to have a small, legal ceremony at Huddersfield Town Hall, and then we all met up at
The Pendle Inn, surrounded by countryside close to Burnley & Clitheroe.
The venue and area is steeped in history, most famously known for the Pendle Witches. So when I turned up, and it was raining, foggy and totally atmospheric, I was SO excited. The weather fitted perfectly with the style of the wedding, and Faith & Chris’ laid back, outdoor loving nature.
The bride & and her daughter wore dresses made by were beautifully made by Faith’s Mum.
I do love a plan before the wedding day, but for Faith & Chris, they literally wanted me to capture the events as they unfolded, and to take ‘whatever I thought’. They were totally trusting and just happy to ‘go with the flow’.
Once the guests had gathered, we got our brollies, waterproofs and wellies at the ready, we hiked through the rain to the gorgeous woodland at The Pendle Sculpture Trail for the ceremony. The short personal ceremony was conducted by the couples friend, and featured poems, readings, live music & even a dance.
You know the bride is laid back when she slips over in the mud in her dress, puts her hands in the air and carries on laughing!
We then explored the woodland, and waded through some mud to capture a few couples photographs, I got rather excited about the UNICORN…
Dusk set in and we headed back to the pub to warm up, dry off, and eat some warming food. There was also a face painter & balloon artist (AMAZING!) and a lovely cosy atmosphere.
What a wonderful, personal wedding for this pair. Congratulations Faith & Chris, here are some highlights….
“We couldn’t recommend Katie highly enough as a photographer. I can honestly say she’s someone who will go above and beyond to make sure your wedding photos are exactly what you’re after. In our case, 2 hours in a wood in the pouring rain. And she did it all with a constant smile and as much enthusiasm for the event as we had. She truly understood exactly what we wanted and needed from the day. What more could a couple ask for.” – Faith & Chris 5* Google Review.
