The seat of the Earl of Derby, it’s not open to the public in the way of a National Trust property (where, ironically, you often can’t get married!) but the Earl is forward-thinking enough to make his incredible house available as a wedding venue. There’s simply nowhere else like it in the North West of England. From the jaw-dropping Van Dyke paintings in the banqueting hall to the beautifully well-kept gardens, no part of it either ceases to amaze or denies the photographer an amazing opportunity for stunning photos. I could shoot there every weekend and never get bored. Anyway. Enough waxing lyrical about the venue, here’s some photos from Helen & David’s fabulous October wedding.
Where to start? Dan made us feel totally at ease from the first meeting; straight-forward and reassuring from the get-go so Helen and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. On the big day, he played it perfectly; directing everyone with a laugh and a joke for the big group shots and blending into the background to capture all those little moments that made the day so special but which inevitably passed us by in all the excitement. His energy and enthusiasm is backed up by a real talent which has resulted in an absolutely fantastic record of our wedding day. Thanks so much!
Helen & David, Knowsley Hall
