Poppy Appeal

When I put out a request for photographers to send me their real life brides to feature on the blog, David Barry came straight back to me with these.  I instantly wanted these to feature on the launch as I believe they represent Lancashire well.  The scenery, the colours and even the weather are so typical and the bride looks stunning too!

Rebecca Hodgson and Jason Mahrous from Rossendale got married on Saturday 11th June.  As well as using their stunning venue, Stirk House in Gisburn, as a backdrop the couple and David decided to take a trip to the River Ribble and the historic Sawley Abbey to take advantage of the luscious scenery to frame their wedding photos. As you can see there is something about a wedding and historic ruins that make perfect pictures!

The following photos are taken on the roundabout on the A59 Clitheroe outside McDonalds!  David spontaneously suggested that the poppies would make wonderful and quirky photos, and so they did...

In fact, the whole scene (picture a photographer with a newly wedded couple pulled over by a roundabout) seemed so unusual that a passerby stopped thinking they had broken down.  After finding that this wasn't the case, the lady called Radio Lancashire to inform them of the great idea, making the wedding regional news!

No poppies were harmed in the making of this wedding album!  Thanks to Jason, Rebecca and David Barry Photgraphy for letting me use these pictures.
