A Red Hot Brockholes Nature Reserve Wedding
Jamie & Chris were married at the wonderfully quirky Brockholes Nature Reserve in Preston, Lancashire on one of the hottest days of 2016 so far. The 250 acre Brockholes Nature Reserve is without doubt one of the quirkiest wedding venues I’ve ever visited, but that’s great because I absolutely love all things quirky!
Brockholes is owned by the Wildlife Trust and was opened in 2011. Based on the site of an old quarry, the reserve provides habitats for many different kinds of wildlife. The floating Visitor Village is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom and makes for a beautiful setting for a wedding. It was perfect from Jamie & Chris who are both huge lovers of the great outdoors.
Sit back and enjoy some of the highlights of a truly magnificent day.
I must thank Jamie & Chris for booking me to photograph their wedding, I had such an amazing time and I hope you both have a truly fantastic honeymoon watching the Olympic Games in Brazil. I’ve always wanted to visit Brazil so I admit to being a little envious, it’s on my list!
Also, an extra special thank you must go to the groom for photographing me from his mobile phone wading into the lake to get the angle I needed to capture the photograph below. Chris’s photo is on the top with the final image from me at the bottom. I certainly think it was worthwhile getting our feet wet!
Get in touch if you’re planning your wedding and are looking for a documentary style photographer, I’d love to hear from you.
Thank you to my family & friends for your support and encouragement, it means everything to me.
Peace is free
