Vicki and Stuart’s Browsholme Hall Wedding – Sneak Preview!

Weddings | 01.09.2011

Vicki & Stu’s wedding was one of those wonderfully rare days where the weather didn’t do what it was forecast to! Well, it did in the morning and then miraculously cleared and was glorious sunshine! (Somebody said to me recently that my advertising strapline should be – “Jonny Draper Photography – We guarantee the weather….” Writing those words makes me VERY nervous…!!!)

Browsholme Hall is the most gorgeous venue. Vicki & Stu were married in the converted Tithe Barn and then we were lucky enough to be allowed to use the grounds of the main hall for photographs as well. I feel like I’ve known the guys up at Browsholme forever now! I first visited when the barn conversion was still a building site when my good friend Rebecca Clarke who is in charge of EVERYTHING up there (!) invited me up for a nosey round (I’ve known Rebecca for quite a few years now as she actually looked after Emma & I at The Inn at Whitewell when we got married!)

So I was very excited to be shooting my first wedding up there as I’ve shot girls in dresses and other bits and pieces up there along the way, but there’s nothing quite like the real thing!

On with the preview just for Vicki & Stu…

We popped up to the hall before the wedding breakfast to get some bridal party shots…

….who were insistent on using the grounds as a playground!  Love it!

For the record, I don’t make my bridal party’s do this – they just sometimes do it of their own accord!
