From the first time I met Sarah & Nick at Stonyhurst College last year I had been looking forward to their wedding. Stonyhurst College is an absolutely magnificent building, and just has to be seen to be believed …seriously! As a Manchester wedding photographer I am lucky to have lots of fantastic wedding venues closeby, but Stonyhurst College is something else. The college has a very long and interesting history, for example JRR Tolkien wrote part of Lord of the Rings during his stay at Stonyhurst and Oliver Cromwell slept on a table at the College whilst on his way to the Battle of Preston in 1648. Sarah & Nick were both pupils at the College so it obviously has very special significance for them both, which made the day all the more special
After the wedding at Stonyhurst College we travelled a few miles to Samlesbury Hall in Preston for the wedding reception. I have taken wedding photographs at Samlesbury Hall before and it is a beautiful wedding venue in it’s own right, Sarah & Nick really couldn’t have chosen two better Lancashire wedding venues!
Sarah & Nick – thank you very much again for asking me to take your wedding photographs, I am really pleased you are so happy with your pictures. Thank you also for taking the time to show me around Stonyhurst College, it made the wedding day all the more interesting to me to understand the significance it holds for you both. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together
