No one knows how long there has been a church at Downham. During the rebuilding of 1910 traces of what was believed to be early Norman or Anglo- Saxon foundations were unearthed. Set in the heart of the Lancashire Dales it was a please to get the privilege to shoot at such a beautiful church. The reception was held at Holmes Mill, based in the heart of Clitheroe. Holmes Mill wedding venue is a unique celebration of Lancashire food, drink and entertainment, and a full functioning Lancashire Wedding Venue. Featuring a beer hall, hotel, food hall and much more, this former textiles mill is the perfect place to indulge, unwind and explore.

This place has to be a consideration if you’re planning to have a Lancashire wedding and you’re still looking for a uniquely different wedding venue. This shabby chic space is a hit with modern brides who are looking for something more alternative to the traditional wedding venue.

My day started at a local guest house complex that was just a stone’s throw from the church where my couple had decided to tie the knot. With the bride and groom getting ready in such close proximity to each other, and the church being within throwing distance I was able to cover both groom and bride’s preps and still make it to the church to cover the guests arriving. Result!

The ceremony was emotional for Jamie and I caught him tear up as Hannah walked down the aisle with her dad. That was the start of an emotional roller-coaster that continued over the day and into the speeches. The feature film has mirrored their wedding day and is a real tear jerkier, and I hope some of this comes through in this short trailer.
