Emma and Mark’s Story

 

It’s been nearly 15 years of weddings and today was my first time at Gibbon Bridge Hotel since my close friend’s wedding back in 2008 when I was a guest – today was his birthday too! I arrived at Gibbon Bridge to meet Mark and Emma whilst they got ready to tie the knot.

 

Emma said yes to Mark at their house in Wales by the fire pit. Mark put twinkle lights up and a sign that said Marry me whilst Emma was in the kitchen burning mince pies (Emma’s words).  He phoned Emma and asked for help taking the bar front off and that’s when she saw everything lit up.

They chose the date as they were celebrating Christmas, just the 2 of them where they wanted to get married originally before Covid took over and wanted something small and intimate so thought it a good idea to do a very last-minute gathering. Perfect.

 

Gibbon Bridge is located in the heart of rural Lancashire, nestled amidst rolling hills and lush greenery. With its cosy atmosphere and breathtaking views, it’s the perfect place to celebrate in style.

Emma and Mark said “I do” in front of family, friends, at the Parish Church of Saint Michael Whitewell. Canon Roger Smith officiated a fantastic ceremony which provided lots of great photos. A well-done ceremony can be the big difference to boring pictures and amazing photos with lots of laughter in them. Despite the chill, rain, and wind outside there was a huge feeling of warmth from the church.

With the weather playing its part in the day, out main plans had gone out of the window. Our back up was staying in the church at the end to capture a few groups and to produce a couple of creative portraits. They do look fantastic even if I say so.

 

Back at Gibbon Bridge we were greeted by Robin the Piano Man from Cambridge playing and singing some great music. After an hour or so of mingling between the guests we captured some more groups and then a few more creative portraits.

A hugely magnificent wedding day: thanks Emma and Mark for having me, Canon Roger Smith along with his aid, and thank you to all the lovely staff at the Gibbon Bridge.
