Chantelle & Chris’ Engagement Session in Accrington
Recently I met Chantelle and Chris at Oakhill Park in Accrington for their Engagement Session. I’ve known Chantelle for years as my mum’s best friend of 30+ years is Chantelle’s Auntie, so i’m pretty excited about being their Wedding Photographer and getting to spend the day with them and their family.
Chris & Chantelle are getting married at Stanley House Hotel in Blackburn, Lancashire which is one of my favourite local venues. It is surrounded by the most beautiful Lancashire countryside and the original ‘Stanley House’ building is beautiful both inside and out, the food is pretty good too!
Chantelle and Chris actually live in Berkshire where Chris is from, when they met through work Chantelle moved down there to be with him, but with Chantelle having a huge family they decided to have the wedding in Lancashire.
We met up a few weeks ago for a lovely catch up to chat through all the plans for the day and spent some time at Oakhill Park in Accrington for their Enagement Session. I love Engagement Sessions because not only do we create beautiful photos before the wedding, but it helps put people at ease with photography so they are more relaxed on the day. My approach is very informal and relaxed so we walked around the park chatting and laughing whilst i captured the natural moments that happened and a few nice portraits of this loved up pair! It helps that these two just didn’t stop giggling!
I can’t wait to shoot your wedding in September, I hope you both enjoy the previews. I’m looking forward to working at Stanley House again with all these amazing suppliers:
