We had the pleasure of spending the day with the awesome Catherine and Jason at their wedding at the beautiful Beeston Manor.
We had fallen a little bit in love with these two from previous meetings and the pre wedding shoot earlier in the month and had high expectations for their wedding – we were not disappointed!
We started the day at the Samlesbury Hotel where Catherine was getting ready with her bridesmaids, to a backdrop of music from the Greatest Showman – can’t complain! Iain flitted over to the boys part way through the morning who were getting ready at the Tickled Trout Hotel overlooking the Ribble.
The ceremony took place at our favourite place to be – Beeston Manor (albeit we are a little biased as we got married there ourselves in 2012). The ceremony room looked absolutely stunning as it usually does and guests made good use of the bar and reception area while waiting for Catherine’s arrival.
BRIDE AND GROOM PORTRAITS
After the ceremony and the large group photographs we accompanied Catherine and Jason to a small waterfall local to Beeston Manor and made use of the gorgeous brickwork and huge metal door. It was one of those moments where the shot would look amazing or complete rubbish never to be seen again. It looked amazing!
After we returned we were treated to live music by Alex Birtwell as guests mingled and sang along to favourites by Oasis, the Spice Girls and Hanson. The fun was carried though into the wedding breakfast as just before desserts Alex was back on and got the place jumping with more live music and games that got quite a bit competitive. Suz was given the task to pick the table that got into the festivities the most for a chance to win a bottle of champagne. She chose the ‘Jamaica’ table which she had made friends with which wasn’t a biased decision. At all. Sorry Poland table…
When the standing on tables and throwing napkins across the room was done the guests headed back to reception to rest before the night kicked off. And my word did it go off. Alex had the dance floor heaving with the help of his brother Lewis. There was dancing, lying down, whatever it was that Jason did, lifting people above their heads and spinning them like a helicopter. It. Was. Awesome.
Iain has never received so many hugs when leaving this wedding and it speaks volumes about the amazing people that were there. Thanks for letting us be part of the day guys, we’re happy you LOVE your photographs – it was an absolute pleasure to capture them.
