Steven & Melanie

21st May 2022

Today's wedding was at Singleton Lodge Country House Hotel for Steven and Melanie, and before I begin,  I have to say that this was one of the most fun and happiest weddings I have photographed this year, just everybody was so happy,  smiling and laughing I don't think I've had a wedding like this before. In every photo I looked at somebody in it was laughing and smiling.

The day started off with The Bridal preparations at their family home in Blackpool photographs of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready, before heading off to Singleton Lodge to do the final preparations of getting the dress on.

Steven arrived with his best man, and as all good men do and headed straight for the bar to get a quick drink before taking his final steps into the ceremony room.

The wedding got underway in the Singleton Lodge ceremony room surrounded by their friends and family, with plenty of smiles laughter and cheers as the couple finally sealed their wedding with a kiss.

After the ceremony was out onto the lawn for drinks and canapes celebrations laughter and of course the confetti and group photos.

The whole day was just such good fun, surrounded by great people just enjoying the wedding of Steven and Melanie, at this fabulous venue.

At no point throughout the day did I have to look for a photograph to take or somebody smiling, the happiest wedding I've ever photographed.
