Rivington Barn Wedding Photographer
I absolutely adore being chosen as a Rivington Barn wedding photographer. The barn dates back to the Saxon era and still has its impressive original beams.
In 1953 Bill & Rhoda Salmon moved into the Hall. The Barns had been empty since World War II and after refurbishment it became a venue for all types of events, and has continued to do so ever since.
The Salmon Family are responsible for everything that happens at Rivington Hall Barn, and maintain a family run ethos who take pride in offering a welcoming and friendly service.
Laura & Nick’s Rivington Hall Barn Wedding
I love photographing weddings at Rivington Hall Barn. It’s one of my absolute favourite venues so I was really looking forward to Laura & Nick’s big day.
The day started off at Laura’s mum and dad’s house for the preparations. The sun was shining and the bridesmaids were enjoying Prosecco in the summer house. Kirstie did Laura’s hair which was nice because I photographed her wedding at Red Hall in Bury a couple of years earlier and she is lovely.
Laura looked incredible in her wedding gown.
The couple had their wedding at their local church. One of my favourite moments was when Nick saw Laura walking down the aisle. He cried his eyes out. There was a tense moment during the ceremony where Nick struggled to get the ring onto Laura’s finger, but the couple took it well.
Wedding Reception at Rivington Hall Barn
After the ceremony we headed to Rivington Hall Barn, with the sun shining brightly, guests enjoyed canapés and bubbly on the terrace with the resident peacock and Laura, Nick and I went for a little walk around the grounds.
I found a beautiful cherry blossom tree which had branches in the shape of a circle so I took a picture of them in the middle of it. It framed them perfectly and they looked so happy.
The speeches were hilarious as you can see from the photos. After such a gorgeous day we stole 10 minutes at sunset before the evening guests arrived for a little dance in the field and the photos were beautiful.
Nothing though was more beautiful than they way they looked at each other.
Here’s their story…enjoy!
