Holmes Mill Weddings
Located in the heart of Clitheroe, is the beautifully converted Holmes Mill. The Mill hosts a unique celebration of Lancashire food, drink and entertainment. This former textiles mill is a truly unique place to hold your wedding celebrations. It has beautifully modern hotel along side, for all you lovely wedding guests, which is a big bonus. The building is split into three sections, the Spinning Block – The Boiler House – The Weaving Shed. Its within the The Boiler House that you will find is the most unique function room. Bear plaster walls, exposed pipework, old cinema seats around the outside of the room. If that floats your boat, please take a look at this simply stunning and very unique venue.❤ I truly LOVE shooting at this venue, then again who doesn’t love a…gorgeous Holmes Mill wedding!
Wedding Photographer Duties
I covered both bridal & groom prep for Emma & Tom. The girls got ready at Emma’s mum’s place & the boys at home them onto the local Cricket Club, for a few pre -ceremony pints. The local church in Greenmount, Bury was the next stop for the ceremony. The rain was the heaviest I’d seen at a wedding all year. Carrier bags at the ready!. (Please check this image below – one of my favourite’s of the year!).
Emma’s brother loaned the couples his beautiful VW camper van. He had pimped up the camper into a cute LOVE BUG, filled with cushions and fairy lights. After confetti & celebrations at the church it was off to Holmes Mill for the party. The Engine Room is where Tom & Emma’s guests were taken on arrival to relax & have a few bubbles & beers. This is where I get to mingle & snap away getting those informal – formals pics! After the portraits & family pics, I had a little explore upstairs capturing the beautifully decorated function room before dinner.
This wedding was definitely a party wedding!! Emma had made over 80 hangover kits for her guests to take at the end of the night. Filled with a bottle of water, coffee sachet, tea bag, paracetamol & sweeties!. Glo-sticks were supplied for everyone to party with, providing great photo opportunities too😍.My complete Fav!
