Lauren & Ed

Mitton Hall Wedding

When Lauren got in touch regarding her Mitton Hall Wedding I had only worked in the Clitheroe area a couple of times. I had no idea what a cult following Finch Bakery had and how popular their cake business was! After following their antics online leading up to the wedding I knew it was going to be a brilliant wedding.

Following the Church Lauren and Ed rendezvoused with myself and Tom from Tom Harrington Films on Cromwell Bridge for some portraits overlooking the stunning Ribble Valley.

Lauren of course made a few touch ups to her wedding cake (she couldn’t resist) but my god the Finch Bakery cake table was impressive!!

All in all it was an awesome day. Really relaxed and was a pleasure to work with some of the best wedding suppliers in the Ribble Valley.

Here are are a few words from Lauren and Ed…

The build up to our wedding seemed to only last a few weeks, it didn’t seem real until then. The weather had been beautiful sunshine all week and then it changed to cloudy yet mild, which was still surprisingly warm for this time of year, 11 degrees in March. Crazy weather!

We met at St Peter’s Church in Salesbury first for our vows, which is Lauren’s childhood church. Throughout our wedding we had a jazz singer, a magician and a band.  We wanted to keep our guests interested and entertained all day. I know it’s such a typical thing for people to say, but it genuinely was the best day ever and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

We met in Bangkok in 2013 whilst we were both travelling. It was Ed’s first night and my last night before I flew to Australia. Our paths only crossed briefly for a few hours, but we kept in touch for 9 months before we were both back in the UK. We were long distance for a year living together first in the south and then in the north for 4 years.

Ed proposed to me in our bedroom on Mother’s Day last year. I don’t think he really thought this through although his reason was that “we had a day off together the next day to celebrate.”

Being from the Ribble Valley and working in the wedding industry, Mitton Hall is my favourite local venue for weddings.

A lot of Ed’s friends and family live down south so I wanted to keep the people travelling to a minimum, and I was able to advise where they could stay as well as being able to easily pop into the venue whenever required. It looked absolutely amazing on our wedding day, better than we could have imagined.
