One of the best things about being a Lancashire wedding photographer is that I get to travel this beautiful part of the country. Lancashire is one of my favourite parts of the country. The county is huge and stretches from the Pennines to the west coast and from Cheshire to the Lake District. My parents had their annual holidays every year in Lancashire, so it’s always nice to go back and photograph weddings in this stunning region.

The Wedding chapel in Blackpool stands under the shadow of the Tower, on the seafront and is the perfect seaside place to get hitched. Blackpool Tower and the tower ballroom, maybe you can have a Strictly themed wedding! Blackpool Winter Gardens is another venue in the centre of town and needs no introduction from me.
For more coastal venues then how about The Vincent in Southport? It’s a stone’s throw from the famous Lord Street and you can use Southport’s iconic bandstand for your photos. A little up the coast in Morecambe and The Platform is a converted Edwardian railway station with views over the bay, so you’ll get both the sea and a piece of history. How about a little piece of Art Deco style for your big day? The Midland Hotel is on the seafront and the sun terrace has fantastic views over the North West coast of Morecambe Bay and is a real luxury venue for the discerning bride and groom. Finally, and wrapping up the coastal locations, there’s the graceful and gentile Lytham St Anne’s. Lytham Hall is a fine grade 1 listed 18th Century Georgian manor house, which sits at the end of a mile long driveway surrounded on all sides by almost 80 acres of parkland. You can then use the windmill and the stunning coastline for your photos.
