Holmes Mill is a fantastic space and one of my favourite North West Wedding venues. So when Annette and Oliver got in touch regarding their wedding reception at Holmes Mill I was excited! Especially with this being their second wedding as they had just tied the knot in the Summer in California.

Cool Portraits in The Ribble Valley

Oliver has a massive ginger beard so obviously we become instant friends and Annette was so creative I knew this was a perfect match.

They both got ready together before we drove out into the wilds of Clitheroe for portraits. It was so much fun and they were up for anything! It was polar opposite to Cali but I think thats what made it.

On our return to Holmes Mill there was time for a quick wardrobe change before a couple of cool portraits around The Bistro, Engine Room and back into the main room for the wedding reception at Holmes Mill.

Annette and Oliver were kind enough to share some words with me as well. Thanks for believing in my creative weirdness you guys!!

Alternative Wedding Photography

We met in California over 10 years ago, while Oliver was on a trip with some friends.  We stayed friends over the years.  Then about 6 years ago Annette and her friend Tiffany came over to England for a girls trip.  Oliver played the amazing host. We reconnected one night and a few Guinness’s later.  We have been on so many adventures since then.

I flew us out to Miami, midway between California and Lancashire. We hired a car and drove to the Florida Keys and South Beach Miami. We saw The Chainsmokers play. I had a couple of locations in mind and eventually settled on a quiet sunset at Fort Zachary Taylor on the tip of Key West, we were laying on the rocks and I knelt on one next to Annette, strangely she took a selfie of us a moment before I asked her.
