A Festival style Wedding in Lancashire
I first met Sarah and David on their Pre shoot in Bury where they had a couple of hours break from the kids so we could talk all things wedding!
Sarah and Dave were extremely welcoming and I had a lovely glass of coke which usually sets me off like a rocket! Looking round their house I could see how much their family and friends meant to them with all the pictures and and signs about being happy. Sarah did admit she’s quite sign obsessed which I love!
I loved hearing about their first date which included a night around Bury complete with a giant garlic cheese wheel (Dave loves cheese) that Sarah had to try and force into her handbag! it must have been love or the fact that Dave resembles James Corden.
Their Wedding had a festival theme to it and from the moment Sarah gave me the Wedding invite I knew I was going to be in for a treat with this day!
Sarah arrived at the church in Bury in a gorgeous VW Camper van with a personalised number plate saying “Willacy”. Sarah had on the most quirky vintage dress I have ever seen! simply stunning! Dave was sweating a bit in the church as she was 45 minutes late but when he caught site of Sarah he was gobsmacked!
After the ceremony it was on to Clitheroe and a new venue for me called Clough Bottom Out Barn which you can visit here: http://cloughbottom.co.uk.
The Sympathetic conversion of the historic Out Barn showcases the marriage of old, traditional materials with modern, new, environmentally friendly building elements.
Open 50 weeks of the year, The Out Barn at Clough Bottom is unique and could be yours exclusively for a weekend to host the Wedding of your dreams. It will accommodate approximately 120 guests for a seated wedding breakfast or more for an informal buffet and has stunning views towards Pendle Hill and the surrounding farmland for memorable photographs and filming.
In front of me was a stunning view of the Lancashire countryside, a bouncy castle, a giant boat slide a bucking bronko and some tepees not forgetting the woman dressed as a flamingo I think? giving out V.I.P wrist bands. I’d just walked into mini Glastonbury it seemed. Can’t tell you how much I loved the wooden bench they had for people to write on instead of a guest book, very original!
On the day I got to work with Neil Parry Photography, who does some amazing fine art style photography, well worth a look you can find his work here: http://www.neilparryphotography.com
What really touched me on the day was the absolute devotion and love these to have for each other, every time I looked at them I could see how utterly besotted they were with each other. They had both lost their fathers fairly recently and as a tribute to them they had a second dance in honour of them dancing to the song “Dance with my father” this I found hard to film because my emotions where taking over and I don’t think their was a dry eye in the venue.
Anyway we will end on a happy note, the day was amazing, quirky, hilarious and the way I would want my wedding if the time ever arrives?
