Rachel & Rob’s Wedding at Samlesbury Hall

This was a beautiful wedding at Samlesbury Hall – a fantastic Tudor house just down the road from Preston. Filled with history and (if you believe in that kind of thing) ghosts – it is almost 700 years old after all! We love the black and white look of the dark timber frames, it’s just a stunning and unique wedding venue.

Rachel got ready in the Gatehouse of Samlesbury Hall while Rob was five minutes down the road at The Millstone in Mellor. The wedding ceremony was in the lovely Whittaker Room which is actually brighter than you’d think – so good for pictures!

It was definitely an emotional day, with lots of tears from Rachel’s dad when he saw her in the dress for the first time, and he wasn’t alone in this! Our overriding memory of the day is all the big smiles and big laughs. Just look at the pictures – everyone had a great time! There were pizzas too. They were delicious. Weddings are awesome 🙂

I have to give a shout out to the fantastic Gillan Edgar Band who brought the party home at the end of the night with style!
