Beeston Manor Wedding

 

Highlights from Michelle & Rob’s brilliant Beeston Manor wedding in Lancashire

 

Brilliant Lancashire Wedding

Michelle & Rob were married at the stunning and unique Beeston Manor in Lancashire, an award-winning grade II listed barn conversion with oak beams and sandstone walls. The couple booked me for their Beeston Manor Wedding at a wedding fair organised by Little White Books. We hit it off instantly when we met at the fair, and the booking was firmly in the diary within a couple of days….which was nice 😉 Michelle & Rob were going to be a brilliant, fun-loving chilled couple, and I was really looking forward to their Beeston Manor Wedding. On the day, I went to Michelle’s to capture some natural bridal prep photos as the wedding party swapped hairdryers and mirrors. The atmosphere was brilliant, Michelle was SO excited to be marrying Rob at Beeston Manor in a few hours…

Best Lancashire Wedding Venue

Beeston Manor is one of the best wedding and events venues in Lancashire. They have numerous awards to their name, and rightly so. The owners have worked very hard on making it the much sought-after venue it is, both in the actual building and overall design, plus their marketing and reputation in the wedding industry with us suppliers. The venue gets booked up for two years ahead at times, so you’d best get your skates on if you’re looking for this stunning Lancashire venue for your wedding.

Weddings at Beeston Manor

I caught up with Rob and Best Man in the ceremony Room at Beeston Manor. After a quick chat and a couple of jokes between us, I was off  ‘doing my thing’ – capturing the guests arriving; the hugs, and emotion a wedding day brings. I really love my job and sometimes when I am working, it doesn’t feel like work at all. This was one of those days where I almost felt like I was guest number 91…without the champagne though (never when I’m working!). Michelle duly arrived bang on time, in her wedding car, chaperoned by her son, who had the proud duty of giving her away today.

Here Comes The Bride

As Michelle arrived at the foot of the stairs, the nerves flashed across Rob’s face slightly. The jokes and fun suddenly stopped, for…ooh….nearly ten seconds or so, until Rob broke out into a massive smile to see Michelle walking down the aisle. With a reassuring pat on the back from Best Man, normal service was resumed. As you were! The bridesmaids walked staggered as they made way for Michelle’s subtle but emotional entrance. Even I had a lump in my throat! As Michelle & Rob met, the smiles beamed throughout the ceremony room for this brilliant couple.

Wedding Cars in Lancashire

After the ceremony it was time to ‘Kiss a Thousand Cheeks’ – where all the emotion and atmosphere spills and takes the day to another level in excitement. As Michelle & Rob walked down the aisle together, as man and wife, the applause and cheering was almost deafening! We made our way downstairs to grab a few natural ‘newlywed’ photos before the happy couple disappeared off to have a some private time together in the car. Horgans were on duty with one of their stunning wedding cars for this brilliant Lancashire wedding. On their return it was time for a classic confetti throw, plus a few family photos just in case the (threatening) rain appeared.

Wedding Videographer Lancashire

On image duties with me for the day was Paul from In Love Wedding Films. I’ve worked with Paul a few times and can highly recommend him for your wedding video. He’s good fun to work with, and his videos are pretty awesome too….check him out! We worked together all day, from preparations to the dancing, and stayed ‘a degree out’ of each other’s way, so worked seamlessly, giving Michelle & Rob the best results.

The wedding breakfast was beautifully laid out in the extension. I photographed it before the wedding guests poured in for a tremendous set of speeches and a very funny game of Mr & Mrs, hosted by DFC Lancashire….who hosted the whole afternoon and late into the evening with a mix of floor-stompers and a live saxophonist!
