Mike & Rhis Wedding at The Dunkenhalgh- Accrington and Rufford Old Hall- Ormskirk
Next on the blog is the gorgeous sunny wedding of Michael and Rhiannon which was at two amazing wedding venues, Rufford Old Hall in Ormskirk and the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Accrington.
Michael and Rhiannon are both English Teachers and have been together since they met at Uni in 2002! Their love for English was everywhere in their wedding and their choices of venue and the whole day suited them perfectly.
We kicked things off with bridal preparations at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel in Accrington which is very handy for me as its 5 minutes from my house! Rhiannon was excitedly getting ready with step-daughter Jenna and best friend Emily.
I arrived at Rufford Old Hall just before the guests began to arrive and all was quiet. As a wedding photographer, I get excited by old beautiful buildings and wedding venues like Rufford Old Hall get me rather excited. Set in beautiful manicured gardens the National Trust Tudor building has so much charm and character perfect for amazing wedding photographs.
Mike arrived looking dapper in his blue suit and excited guests greeted him as it was time for everyone to go inside as the bride arrived! Rhiannon looked beautiful in her White wedding dress fitted at the top with a huge flowing skirt.
The day was relaxed and laid back just as Mike and Rhiannon wanted it to be. Following the meal back at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel were the most beautiful and heartfelt speeches, i’m not sure there was a dry eye in the room as Rhiannon’s dad, best man and Mike shared stories about the couple and their love for each other, they are clearly perfect together.
This day was just perfect, thank you so much for making me feel so welcome and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
