2016 continues here at Brett Harkness Photography with the wonderful wedding of Claire & Aaron in Morecambe.
We arrived at The Midland Hotel on the stroke of 9am to photograph Claire getting ready. A wonderful rooftop suite awaited us with views out over the bay. After spending some time with the girls we visited the guys who were also getting ready at the same hotel. We knew we had to try and get ahead of the girls who were travelling in a vintage VW camper van as we had to get into Lancaster to the beautiful Ashton memorial where the wedding ceremony was to be held. The guys were already there when we arrived and so we waited for the girls.
The girls arrived with Claire looking beautiful in her dress with the bridesmaids also looking stunning in their matching blue dresses. Everyone waited with baited breath as the doors opened and the bride arm in arm with her mother made her way in. Aaron was dressed in full RAF military uniform as were the groomsmen. The ceremony was a beautiful and touching affair with the bride & groom centrepiece in the stunning architecture that was Ashton Memorial. After the ceremony everyone made there way outside into the sunshine and to a full Guard of Honour exit from the church which was great fun to see and photograph! After which we had a little time to do some family shots and some shots of the bride & groom & bridal party outside on the steps.
We all made our way back to the equally fabulous Midland Hotel on the sea front in Morecambe. This Art Deco hotel gave us some great places to shoot. We knew what time the sun was going to set so we arranged with Aaron & Claire to take them to the hill top overlooking the bay for this very moment. Luckily the meal and speeches finished with enough time to spare to take the short 5 min drive to the ruins on the hill top overlooking Morecambe Bay for a 10 minute shoot that I will never forget!
A huge thank you to Aaron & Claire for making the day such fun and a joy to be a part of.
