It was a real honour to have been asked to photograph the wedding of Laura and Christian at Browsholme Hall and the Tithe Barn earlier this year. Set in the stunning Lancashire countryside, this stunning 500-year-old Mansion combines grandeur with rustic charm. With it’s adjoined farms and Tithe Barn, Browsholme provides the perfect setting for any wedding. From a photography point of view, this venue has everything, with beautiful grounds on all sides, barns, a lake (with boats) and the warmth and comfort of the barn itself.
Photos from Laura and Christian’s wedding in the Tithe Barn.
Laura got ready in the relative quiet of Browsholme Hall, spending a few quiet hours preparing and spending some time with her Mother. Christian arrived later in the morning at the Barn. From the off, it was clear to see that this wedding was going to be one full of love and emotion. There was plenty of nervous excitement in the air which carried through to tear-filled ceremony led by the Lancashire registrars. Anyway, enough of my jibber jabber. Here are some photographs from this very beautiful occasion.

Browsholme Hall Weddings
For the time of year, the weather was pretty good for the rolling hills of northern Lancashire and we made the most of the daylight and the grounds of this stunning Lancashire venue. Following the family group photographs, the Bride, Groom and I took a stroll across the estate to the lake and meandered back to the tithe barn stopping for a few less formal portraits along the way. It was a real joy spending this time with Chris and Laura who I think really appreciated a little quiet time away from the crowd enjoying the wedding reception back at the barn. It was a stroke of luck that we were also able to take one shot in the barn before the wedding breakfast just as the sun came out from behind the clouds and lit up the room.
Some information about the Tithe Barn
The barn was originally built in the eighteenth century for storing agricultural produce and was just adjacent to the stableyard of Browsholme Hall. Unfortunately, there was a fire in the late 19th century and was subsequently used to winter cattle and store hay. Following this, there was a need to modernise the farm and business, so the decision was made to redevelop the barn area and hall for culture and tourism providing a wonderful space for the following:
- Tearoom for day visitors and groups
- Wedding receptions
- Opera, plays and pantomime
- Seminars and corporate events
- Plant Fairs and markets
- Celebration parties
- Community and charitable events.
