Inn at Whitewell Wedding Photography - A Relaxed Country Pub Wedding

Lorna & Laurence's relaxed Lancashire wedding in the Ribble Valley

Lorna & Laurence’s Relaxed Country Pub Wedding at The Inn at Whitewell in Lancashire. This really was a beautiful laid back wedding in the heart of the stunning Ribble Valley. Honestly views are absolutely incredible! With delicious pork pies and tower of cheese I knew this was going to be my kind of wedding!

The Love Story of Lorna & Laurence –

We met at Drama School (The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School) in 2009 and quickly became friends due to our shared sense of humour. Laurence proposed back in Bristol almost 7 years after we met! We wanted a very homely feel for the wedding; using British (ideally local) suppliers. We wanted the day to have a very lived in, botanical feel and for the guests to feel that they had full bellies, slightly merry heads and like they had been given a big, warm hug from us.

St Michael’s Church Wedding Ceremony –

The gorgeous wedding ceremony was at St Michael’s Church literally a few steps away from The Inn at Whitewell country pub. The ceremony at the church was just lovely with just the perfect amount of light pouring in through the windows and both Lorna and Laurence looking stunning. You’ll see from the photographs further down how gorgeous the ceremony was. Once everyone had made the way out of church and hugs and well wishes had been passed around there was a explosion of Confetti before we headed back over to the pub.

After the ceremony at St Michaels church it was back over to The Inn at Whitewell for a few drinks before everyone made the way through the the Marquee at the back which happens to have stunning views by the way!
