Fisherman’s Retreat, Ramsbottom Photography ~ Dan Barlow

Vanessa & Sammy

Vanessa & Sammy held their autumn wedding ceremony at the excellent Fisherman’s Retreat just outside of Ramsbottom. The last time we were here was the previous weekend for their snowy pre-wedding photoshoot and I’d come equipped this time for cold weather – gloves, a hat, snow tyres… All items which stayed in the car whilst we used the glorious outside space to make some beautiful portraits and soaked up the epic surrounding Lancashire countryside!

This was a hugely enjoyable day to attend as a documentary photographer; Vanessa and Sammy know how to enjoy themselves and their sense of fun was mirrored in all of their guests which made this such an enjoyable occasion for all. There was always so much love, laughter and tears of happiness present to capture unobtrusively (although Sammy insists I was photographing him unobtrusively every time he had something in his eye…!) Vanessa had also worked on the decorative touches which went so well with the vintage tea service from Velvet Rose China.

Below is a small set of photos from the day which I hope you have as much fun looking at as I had taking.

Congratulations Vanessa & Sammy, thank you for letting me be a part of your day!
