Astley Bank Wedding Photography- Laura & Andrew

A sunny summer wedding an amazing Lancashire Wedding Venue- Astley Bank 

When i first met Laura and Andy i knew their wedding would be effortlessly beautiful, they are the kind of clients you want as your friends because they are so easy to be around and so obviously in love! I even had the pleasure of meeting mum at this point and found out that Laura’s mum and dad are photographers, so no pressure! Seriously though, we were made to feel so welcome by this amazing family,  it was an absolute pleasure to be their wedding photographer and part of the day.

Set in Lancashire, in the lovely valley of Rossendale was their ceremony at St James the Less in Rawtenstall, where i grew up I felt totally at home and the day went without a hitch, even the weather didn’t let us down! Laura had told me a little secret when I arrived at her house that morning, that was to be announced during the speeches, thank god for the pre-warning as my emotions might have got the better of me when they announced they were expecting a new addition to the family during the speeches!

The first dance contained some of the most outrageous dance moves I have ever seen and i’m pretty sure the party got even better after I left! I wish you both all the luck in the world for the future and your new arrival.

This is what Laura and Andy said when they saw their photos:


“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much Andrew and I love our wedding photographs!

It’s amazing to see the day from a different perspective and relive all the moments you have captured. We can’t wait to share them with family and friends.

Thank you so much for being so fabulous!”
