Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer

Laura & Lee’s wedding photos from this brilliant Lancashire wedding venue

Laura & Lee were married recently and commissioned me to undertake their Beeston Manor wedding Photography. We met a good few months back at a wedding fair – at Beeston Manor, (curiously!) hosted by Little White Books. Fast forward a few months and we met for a pre-wedding meeting and E-Shoot, where Laura & Lee decided on one of the stunning acrylic cover Bellissimo digital albums I supply. On the wedding day, the weather looked fairly hideous – dark grey skies, intermittent rain…nightmare, but we soldiered on. Married at Pleasington Priory, the couple were secretly whisked off from a field behind the church by John, the owner  of Beeston Manor…in his helicopter! Here are some highlights from the day, captured dutifully on the Nikons…

Laura was really excited, having never been in one before, and so I had to get to Beeston in less than fifteen minutes, so I could photograph the happy couple’s grand arrival to their reception. A bit of wireless, off-camera flash for a few dramatic formal images, and then we had to run for it as the rain started…again!

The weather wasn’t for giving us any window of opportunity for some decent outdoor Bride & Groom portraits, but we did our best in ten minutes’ worth of shooting…

Then it was time for the speeches. Natural, relaxed, funny and emotional, Russell, the Father of The Bride went first…

From the speeches, we headed back outside for 5 mins of fresh air…and sunshine (at last!). The DJ and Casino guys were setting up inside for the evening party….
