Fun and relaxed wedding at Stirk House Hotel, Gisburn
Back in September, shortly after photographing Liz and Tim’s amazing forest wedding in Denmark, I went to another beautiful and super fun wedding, this time closer to home, in Gisburn, Clitheroe. On this occasion I went as a second shooter and I worked with the lovely and talented Kathryn Jefferson (Delicious Photography). The venue, which was Stirk House Hotel, is a stunning 17th century residence, built using stonework from the former Sawley Abbey, and it was the only location used for this wedding, hosting everything, from bridal preparations to the party in the evening. It is such a good venue and after this wonderful wedding it has definitely become one of my favourite ones in the North West of England.
The day was fantastic and filled with both laughter and tears of joy, thanks to Dan and Danielle, who are two amazing and relaxed people, childhood sweethearts, who love life and are absolutely amazing together. Everyone had a so much fun and my only regret is how fast the day was over.
Everything went smoothly from start to finish and that was thanks to the absolute legend that is Dave, the manager, a fantastic ex-army guy who makes sure that every wedding goes to plan and on time!

Right after the ceremony and confetti, we ran off with Dan and Danielle to do a mini portrait photoshoot which was super fun. The mid day sun was shining bright and even with all the challenges presented by the harsh sunlight, the results were gorgeous. To be fair it’s pretty much impossible not to get gorgeous images when you have such wonderful and positive people in front of your lens!
Romantic sunset wedding photoshoot Lancashire
We were lucky to get an absolutely cracking sunset that day, so after the touching speeches and some really nice food, we took Dan and Danielle out to a nearby field, for some creative and romantic sunset portraits. The light was nothing short of magical which made for some truly beautiful wedding photos!
After that we went back inside for the cake, first dance and finally the party! Everyone had a blast at this wonderful wedding, myself included, and I am truly grateful I got the chance to document such a fun and relaxed wedding from start to finish.
