Bashall Barn is a gorgeous wedding venue set in the Lancashire countryside. When Michelle and Chris approached us to photograph there wedding here we were over the moon! As a recommended supplier at Bashall Barn we love photographing weddings at the venue, it has the most stunning views over the Clitheroe countryside which are perfect for pictures.
Morning began with groom preparation. Chris wore a smart suit from SG Menswear and started the day as most grooms do, with a bit of a tipple! After capturing photos of the groom Shane set off for bridal preparation. Spirits were high and all the girls were having a great time getting ready. Sam Gateley make sure nobody had a hair out of place! Michelle looked amazing in her Maggie Sotterro gown from Enchanted Brides. The look was finished off with a beautiful white rose bouquet.
Once everyone was looking their best it was time to head off for the ceremony. Bashall Barn’s ceremony space is perfect for photos. Light and airy and the perfect blank canvas for couples decorations. Photographing ceremonies in light spaces is always a dream. It was especially great to capture as Michelle has such a beautiful smile which really lit up the room. The black and white image of Chris placing the ring on Michelle’s finger is one of our favourites from the whole day. This photo is made by the brides huge smile!
Natural Wedding Portraits
After the ceremony Shane took the couple for photos. There are so many amazing locations at Bashall Barn for wedding photography. It only took a short time to capture lovely images of the newlyweds. Once reunited with their guests Michelle and Chris got everyone playing a game of beer pong! We love it when couples choose unique and fun activities for their wedding.

One of the best times of the day to capture natural wedding photos is during the speeches. Shane’s style of photography is centred around story telling which is why the speeches is one of his favourite parts of any wedding day. It’s rare to have so many loved ones all together at the same time, being able to capture the shared experience of weddings is a beautiful thing. Speeches are always full of laughter, smiles and happiness which Michelle and Chris’ were no exception. Bashall Barn’s light space made capturing guests reactions a breeze.
Afterward the party began, Shane likes to stay a while after the first dance to capture guests during this part of the evening. Seeing everyone let loose and dance the night away is always so much fun. Dance Floor Couture provided the tunes for the evening, getting everyone on the dance floor.
