Park Hall Chorley Wedding Photography
Michelle & James
Park Hall near Chorley has always been a bit of a special place for me having been a regular visitor to the adjacent Camelot theme park when I was a kid.
Michelle was getting ready at her parents in Croston joined by her sister and soon to be sister-in-law. I was there to capture the start of the day which happened to bring with it a LOT of rain!
From here I headed over to Park Hall where James was with family and friends, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bride. James is a drummer in a band, my second drummer groom of the year!
Umbrellas were made available thankfully as there appeared to be no let up in the wet conditions!
The ceremony took place in the Medieval Banqueting Hall which looks so impressive with its exposed beams and subtle lighting.
The original plan to have some family photos outside was changed and my photographic umbrella came in handy for an indoor studio set up.
Our patience paid off when we found a break in the rain long enough to have a quick walk and capture some lovely informal portraits of Michelle & James.
The speeches and reception meal were back in the Medieval Banqueting Suite after guests made use of a nearby function suite for drinks.
Evening reception entertainment arrived with selfie mirrors, candy carts and a DJ who got everyone up and dancing for an amazing party atmosphere.
The bride & groom took some time out from dancing for a night portrait towards the end of the evening which I was really pleased about.
