Fisherman’s Retreat Wedding – Izzy & James

By February 13, 2019 No Comments

A Fabulous Fisherman’s Retreat Wedding in Lancashire

This was my first time photographing a Fisherman’s Retreat wedding and I must confess, I only knew the venue as a rather nice restaurant before Izzy and James got in touch to discuss their plans, I had absolutely no idea it was also a wedding venue.

A Baking Hot day in Ramsbottom

The Fisherman’s Retreat is located in the Twine Valley at the edge of the Pennines just east of the small town of Ramsbottom (yes, such a place does exist!).

As well as a restaurant serving meals made with locally sourced produce, it also has an onsite shop selling over 300 different kinds of single malt whisky. It’s a wonderful place and I highly recommend a visit.

James and Izzy’s wedding ceremony was held at St. John’s with St.Mark’s Church in Bury on one of the hottest days of the year. Usually, churches aren’t known for having the best light to photograph in but this place was a delight, I’ve never known a church bathed in so much natural light. A photographer’s dream!

Enjoy some of the highlights from a truly brilliant day.
