Summer Scottish Wedding at Hoghton Tower in Lancashire
Good morning, I hope everyone is having a good week. I have some rather lovely Hoghton Tower Wedding Photography to share with you today from Tim and Sarah’s Scottish wedding in a Lancashire castle. As a Lancashire wedding photographer I have photographed weddings at most venues in the area but this was my first time at Hoghton Tower and I was really looking forward to it.
Sat high on the hillside, at the end of a long sweeping driveway overlooking the rolling countryside beyond this 16th century manor house is a wonderful place to get married for those couples after a venue steeped in history and character. Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Royalty are all said to have stayed at Hoghton tower so you will be in good company!
With a stunning room with beautiful windows, open fire places and wood panels where your wedding ceremony is held to the magnificent grounds, gardens and courtyards, Hoghton tower is a photographers dream as there are so many places for your wedding photographs come rain or shine.
Tim and Sarah had chosen here as the place to get married as Sarah wanted to get married in a castle and on seeing Hoghton Tower she knew that it was just what she had in mind. Tim has Scottish heritage so the wedding was Scottish themed with the boys all in their traditional kilts and even Sarah’s stunning wedding dress was tartan.
I joined the girls as they got ready in the Irishmans tower which had stunning views of the famous driveway and Lancashire countryside before heading across the courtyard to meet the boys in the bar and then on to the lawn where they took part in some pre ceremony games.
A lovely ceremony followed and the beaming pair then made their way to the courtyard where their guests blew bubbles at them instead of confetti. After a few family shots I took the pair for a walk around the grounds for some photographs before they rejoined their guests for speeches and the wedding breakfast.
Weddings at Hoghton Tower
As the sun set across the tower and Lancashire countryside the party started in earnest inside as the pair, family and friends took part in some Ceilidh dancing, swinging each other around in a rather energetic fashion! When the first Ceilidh set was complete there was time for one last formality, the cutting of the cake, not with a knife but by a giant sword of course!
I had a lovely time celebrating Tim and Sarah’s special day with them. Lovely people and a lovely setting means one happy photographer. If you are getting married at the tower and are looking for some Hoghton Tower wedding photography for your day then please get in touch as I would love to hear from you.
Until next time……Jade x
