Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer

Emma & Tom’s big day at this top Lancashire wedding venue

Lancashire Wedding Venue

Back to July 2017 and my being a Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer.  Emma & Tom were married recently at Beeston Manor, a Grade II listed barn conversion set in 140 acres of land, and definitely one of Lancashire’s top wedding venues. I have photographed weddings at the venue a few times before and love the place. Expertly run by Amy, together with the owners Janet & John, Beeston Manor is a perfect choice for that rural ‘feel’ to your wedding or event. I love being a Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer, and the scope of opportunities the venue offers is simply brilliant.

Lancashire Makeup Artist

My day started at Emma & Tom’s home in Chorley. As I quietly captured the hustle and bustle of the morning bridal preparations, all handled expertly by the very talented Kerry Baker MUA, the morning slowly evolved and gathered pace. As the flowers arrived, beautiful bouquets from The Gilded Lily, the atmosphere started to buzz more and more. Dad arrived and quietly found a ‘safe’ corner in which to put the finishing touches to his speech, while Gran held court in the makeup room, laughing and joking with the girls. Not long to go now.

Lancashire Wedding Ceremony

The Groomsmen arrived nice and early, to gree the expected guests. The Priest was relaxed and let me have a relativley free-reign in photographing the ceremony – which is always nice! And as the guests were bustled into St Gregory’s Church, Emma duly arrived with the bridesmaids and her father in one of Horgan’s wedding cars.

A Beeston Manor Wedding

Emma & Tom’s special day was to be a classic Beeston Manor experience. As a Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer, I wanted to document their day as unobtrusively as I could, capturing that ‘live’ feel of their wedding celebrations – the natural relaxed couple photos plus a few family group photos thrown in. All nice and natural…maybe with a touch of style too. 😉 As the guests descended in the bar area, we popped out for a few minutes of Bride & Groom photos – all live and unstaged, with a little light direction from myself here and there. In less time than it takes to drink a glass of Prosecco, we were back. We’d beaten the wind stealing Emma’s veil too. Good catch Tom, and thanks Kerry for being our ‘Wingman’ for this one.

Speeches at a wedding

The speeches were brilliant, heartfelt, emotional and funny. It was also Emma’s 29th Birthday again 😉  so was a double celebration! Beeston Manor is perfectly set up for a wedding and as a  Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer, I love the little nooks and crannies I can jam the cameras into. I struggle a little more, being slightly larger than a Nikon of course. 😉 From speeches we were off into the evening celebrations, expertly hosted by Ian Lawton.
