An Ashton Memorial Wedding in Lancaster | Samantha + Carl

In April we has the pleasure of photographing the wonderful wedding of Samantha and Carl at Ashton Memorial in Lancaster and then the reception at Crofters in Garstang. Not only were we the photographers, we were also guests as Samantha is our niece, which made it a very special wedding for us, no pressure lol :)

The weather was glorious and the beautiful setting of Ashton Memorial made a fantastic backdrop to capture some lovely images of the Bride and Groom and all their families and friends (which included us for a couple of shots).  After the ceremony, and then formal shots on the magnificent steps, we took the couple off to explore the beautiful grounds around Ashton Memorial for their couple portraits and time for them to have a few moments alone together.

After the long climb back up the steps we moved on to Crofters in Garstang for the reception where all the guests were already enjoying drinks before sitting down for the reception meal.  Speeches followed by the groom, father of the bride and best man who had everybody laughing.  After the meal, whilst the guests chatted over drinks, we took Samantha and Carl off around Crofters and found some brilliant spots for some more couple photos, before the DJ kicked up the music ready for the first dance and partying.

Thanks again Samantha and Carl for choosing us as your photographers, the pleasure was ours, you make such a beautiful couple and may we wish you every happiness for the future.  Here are a few of our favourites from their fabulous day.
