Sarah and Stu met in Australia, where Stu hails from! They incorporated little jets into their wedding theme to express their love of travel. A deep purple was also used in their styling theme, and looked so pretty set against the gorgeous decor in the reception room at Mitton Hall. Lots of lit candles, surrounded […]

    Hi Nichola!

    I’ve recently got engaged and provisionally booked Bartle Hall on 20th November 2015, both ceremony and reception. I’ve had a look at your website and got to say I really like your style and the albums you have online!

    I’ve seen you’ve even done a few weddings at Bartle Hall which is great because you’ll probably know the venue well and know the best places for photos (especially in the likely event that it will rain!!!).

    Are you available on 20th November 2015, and would your prices as described on the website apply to that date still?

    Look forward to hearing from you!
    Thanks 🙂

There are no words for how awesome this wedding was. Mike wrote a song for Liz. A choir sang it, and a brass band played it, in church. Liz had no idea. There were tears. Lots of tears. There was mistletoe. A surprise holiday for the bridesmaids to Barcelona. A huge Christmas tree. A Harry […]

Katie and Ben are the sweetest couple. When we met them for their pre-wedding shoot at Gordale Scar, we were bowled over by how true their love is, and how Ben makes Katie laugh almost constantly. When Ben told us that some of his groomsmen were nicknamed “Battle Ship” and “Broke Back”, I was a […]
