2017:Best Bits // Kate Williams Photography

Best bits…. Always such a wonderful blog post to write and share. I am a self confessed lover of all things nostalgic (does a year ago count? I think so!) and reminiscing in general – so this is right up my street.

Last year has both flashed before my eyes and at the same time, been so jammed packed full of wonderful memories, that it seemed to stretch forever… The arrival of a certain little Finley Williams in late 2016 has certainly changed our lives in ways we never imagined possible and this first year has been one I will treasure.

It has also marked the start of my journey as a working mum! I’ve certainly learnt a lot – including how to make the most of every precious second of nap times!! 2017 was my busiest year yet with so many wonderful weddings, new arrivals and family sessions. I have been blessed to witness and capture an incredible array of emotion bursting moments and loved every second!

A want to say a HUGE thank you to all my wonderful clients who have made this year extra special and wish you all a fantastic 2018!

This has to be my favourite blog post of the year! Yet again I have the absolute pleasure of re-living all the wonderful memories, moments and total joy from the year just gone. The only hardship of this job is the terrible trial of having to choose a sensible number to share! I have finally managed to whittle it down!

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the incredible couples and families who I have had the absolute honour to get to know and all wonderful moments I have had the privilege to share and capture – what a job I have!

And finally I ended my year with the most special arrival ever… our little boy Finley Robert Williams! He gets the honour of kicking off this years highlights….

Bring on 2017!

Eaves Hall Wedding // Rachael & Matt //

Eaves Hall Wedding Photography

Rachael and Matt’s Eaves Hall wedding really was something a little bit special. After photographing the couple for their engagement shoot  I was sure that the day would be totally fun filled and they did not disappoint! The couple tied the knot in the beautiful rural church of St Huberts, Clitheroe. Not only was the journey to the ceremony across the most stunning countryside but the inside of the church was also truly breathtaking!

The reception then followed at the wonderful Eaves Hall. This is just a perfect setting for wedding photography, plus Rachael and Matt’s meticulous and creative planning made for a fantastic wedding to capture.

Watch out for all Rachael’s beautiful stationary details in the shots below and you can view and buy more from this talented lady by following the link in the suppliers section.

Mitton Hall Wedding Photography // Will & Beth //

Mitton Hall is such a stunning venue for a wedding and Will and Beth were just an absolute pleasure to photograph!

I have to start by mentioning Beth’s incredible dress… An absolutely show stopping Jesus Peiro number with the most beautiful crisp clean lines. Beth looked just amazing in it and I did definitely develop a slight photo obsession!!

The 15th century manor house has so many gorgeous period features and provided a really intimate and striking setting for Will and Beth’s fun filled day. The ceremony itself took place in the beautiful conservatory area with heaps of gorgeous natural light and views out to lots of lovely greenery in the grounds of the hall. The whole day was filled with so much warmth and lots of laughter- just perfect! Wishing you guys every happiness for the future!
