Brockholes Nature Reserve wedding: Gemma & George

At the end of September, I shot a lovely wedding at the Brockholes Nature Reserve in Preston.

I first met George and Gemma in London when I photographed the wedding of one of her bridesmaids, Leila. George and Gemma’s families were amazing and relaxed and made me feel part of the family.

Everything about the day was perfect, from the weather to the ceremony to the venue, a gorgeous nature reserve that was the perfect location for a wedding.

Gemma and George, thank you again for allowing me to capture and be part of your day.

Enjoy the photos.

If you want to see if I’m available for your wedding day, get in touch!
