Beeston Manor Wedding Photography
Keely & Craig’s wedding photos at the unique Beeston Manor wedding venue in Lancashire
Beeston Manor Wedding
Beeston Manor is set in the heart of the Lancashire countryside, situated between Preston and Blackburn. Housed in a restored 16th-century sandstone barn, this family-run guesthouse on 140 acres is 3.1 miles from the M6 motorway . With rustic-elegant rooms featured oak beams, pink sandstone walls, oak furniture and high-end en suite bathrooms, Beeston Manor is one of the most popular wedding venues in Lancashire. Expertly run by Janet, John and the ‘human dynamo’ that is Amy, Beeston Manor offers everything you’d need for your perfect Lancashire Wedding Photography…even a helicopter!
Rural Wedding Venue in Lancashire
Beeston Manor has a lovely rural feel about it, and is both a very unique venue – plus it’s also an exclusive one too. A Beeston Manor Wedding is always great to photograph. From the stunning ceremony room, through to the landscaped gardens, and the brilliant natural array of farm buildings around the venue, it’s a wedding photographer’s dream. Mix that with a bit of Lancashire sunshine, and voila!
I met Keely and the girls having their hair and makeup done upstairs at Beeston Manor. In full high spirits, things were going well. Apart from the torrential rain showers. Hmmm…wonder if we’d beat them today?
Weddings at Beeston Manor
The ceremony room at Beeston Manor was set up nice and early, allowing me to grab a few images like these. The peace was soon to be broken though (in a nice way!) once the guests arrived and we were a few minutes away from the ceremony.
Lancashire Bride, Lancashire Wedding Venue
Keely and Craig were fairly local to Beeston Manor, so it was perfect for them and their families too. As the ceremony time approached, Keely was putting on her wedding dress and making those final touches, ably aided by her bridesmaids. Craig, however was greeting the guests in the bar…but not drinking alcohol I hasten to add!
Stunning Lancashire Wedding
As the guests took their seats, it was time for the wedding party to appear. Bridesmaids and flowergirls first…then that all-important gap befor Keely and her dady walked down the aisle to that almost inaudible rush of gasps and delight. Craig suddenly changed from the slightly anxious groom, to a very excited, proud man as he saw his bride walking towards him.
Wedding Reception in Lancashire
With the ceremony finished, and the necessary paperwork done, it was time to step things up a gear. By now the rain had gone and the sunshine was threatening to emerge at some point. We quickly shot the family groups and everybody started mingling. A couple of showers sent us back inside for a while, but the smart money was still on Mr Sunshine at evens. We should see…
A Perfect Lancashire Wedding Venue
As the showers hit, I had time to photograph the wedding breakfast room. It looked stunning. Creative Cover Hire had done a brilliant job. The rain can do it’s worst now, for the next couple of hours or so. But no! Gone, instantly. And the sun shone brightly as the guests finished their drinks. We had time for a few portraits inside and out whilst the guests made their way through…
Wedding photos at Beeston Manor
With the weather now firmly on our side, Keely, Craig and I ventured out for a few more wedding photos after the wedding breakfast and speeches. We had a good fifteen minutes or so to grab some very natural and relaxed Bride & Groom portraits, so we made use of the time. This was more like it! Natural moments, captured in a natural style with no forced direction from me.
Then we were off for the cake cutting and first dance. The bridesmaids were already in full flow on the dancefloor when we arrived back…
