Lancashire Wedding Photography

Stephanie and Andrew….The new Mr and Mrs Beresford tied the knot on Easter sunday, 24th April 2011 at The Great Hall at Mains, Lancashire. An exclusively yours wedding venue, nestled away on The Fylde Coast The sun shone and all their wedding plans came together perfectly.

Let me share with you their special day….firstly the theme….."Breakfast at Tiffanys" so straight away we get a feeling of the gorgeous and elegant 1950"s era, with "Moon River" playing in the background! This wedding theme soon became "Breakfast at Stephanie's!"…we just loved it!!

So lets' start with the wedding venue….wow and wow again…The Great Hall is always immaculate and looks beautiful, however at this wedding it looked absolutely gorgeous….the tiffany blue worked so well and the elegant theme was enhanced by the stunning venue decor created by Dawn of Creative Covers and the lush flowers and table decor by Jane and Jason Thompson of Flower Design. This combined team effort resulted in a breath taking wedding venue!

Stephanie and her bridesmaids got ready at The Shard Inn and Steph chose to use Sonara Parker for her makeup and another Stephanie for her hair….three Steph's in one room was confusing!!
You can see the elegant accessories, from dresses and shoes, to gloves, flowers, tiffany sunglasses…every last bridal detail was perfect!

Following on from their romantic ceremony, Stephanie and Andy danced down the aisle then enjoyed cocktails and canapes on the terrace of The Great Hall with all their family and friends. As the sun shone, Paul Guard entertained the guests with some fabulous songs… all in the right genre of music for this day. Ashton Photography, myself Stephanie and partner Steve Ashton were delighted to be their chosen wedding photographers. We spent the next or hour capturing bride and groom photographs, some fun photographs of the bridal party and lots of candid and reportage wedding photographs…combine this all together with lots of beautiful detail and I cannot wait to design their wedding album!

Everyone enjoyed delicious canapes and the subsequent wedding breakfast from Twelve event management…the menu was divine ( as always) with an Easter theme of wild game terrine, seasonal roast lamb and a lemon desert…yellow for Easter of course. After a feast of gorgeous food, the speeches commenced…I have to say I so enjoyed them…especially The mother of the Bride Speech….still chuckling about it now!! The Great Hall and Twelve Event management team swiftly changed the room round ready for the evening celebrations.

Stephanie had also selected Joe Hargreaves from Specilised Cakes to design and create the most stunning and detailed wedding cake…the perfect Tiffany colour and detailed icing…the cake stood proud later on for the official cake cutting and first dance. Paul Guard entertained guests during the wedding breakfast and ensured the party got off to a great start with him singing their first dance and getting the guys and girls up for Mustang Sally sing off…so funny!!
A short and sweet summary of a fun, happy and all round great wedding…Steve and I would like to wish the new Mr and Beresford every future happiness x
