Offering the whole package Owen House Wedding Barn has an on-site ceremony room situated right next door to the barn, the beauty shed is the perfect spot for the bridal party to prepare and offers salon chairs, shower room, hairdryers and of course a prosecco fridge to help kick start your day with some celebratory fizz. Then there is the bridal cabin that was built over looking some beautiful fields in a quiet part of the farm and is for the couple to relax and enjoy after their amazing day. The Wedding Barn was converted in 2013 but still contains its rustic and countryside charm. Just a perfect Wedding Venue with everything you need for your wedding day.

No wedding is complete without beautiful decoration and Black Eyed Susie did just that! The venue and the bridal flowers were absolutely stunning and definitely worked with the theme of their wedding. From tall blossom trees on the tables to the smallest of details. A lot of time and effort went into designing the room just right.

During James and Jades wedding day we worked with the Photographer Jonny Draper, Jonny is a popular photographer based in the northwest and is packed with experience of wedding day photography. Jonny loves his work and the passion of wedding photography shines through into his pictures, as a bride and groom you can certainly relax knowing Jonny will capture your day creatively and you will love his images that will portray your wedding day perfectly. Alongside Jonny was Sarah Glynn Photography who was also there to capture the day from a different angle. Sarah was a fantastic person to work around and you can see the quality in her work from the pictures she produced!

The Rush is the new band of the former Coolers with lead singer Gavin Jones who is known for appearing on ITV’s The X Factor. They carry a variety of repertoire which allows the band to cater for any couples style and provide the best entertainment for their wedding day.

A top class entertainer for all types of events, Danny offers the choice of providing himself as a solo artist up to a full band performance. He is definitely a great guy to include in your wedding day entertainment schedule and will certainly impress and excite all of your guests young and old.

So Jonathan and Lesley took their love for each other and their love for star wars and produced a magnificent wedding day at the unique and bespoke Ashfield House. This is their story…..

Ashfield house is an award winning, privately owned, exclusive wedding venue in Standish and was the chosen venue for Jonathan and Lesley to have their special day. Having received renovation over recent years this house is now a beautiful canvas for any wedding and the house becomes your home during your stay. With 15 luxury rooms that come with the hire of the venue your guests can enjoy the freedom of a comfortable stay aswell as a fantastic wedding day celebration. For the bride and groom comes the prestige bridal suite including a romantic four-poster bed, juliet balcony and giant jacuzzi bath so you can relax in style and it is the perfect end to you day.

Ashfield House is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are privately owned and gives plenty of backdrops for those intimate couple shots for the photographers and videographers to work with, including the sweeping lawn, lavender path and stone steps. While you are taking time out exploring the grounds as husband and wife the raised terrace is the perfect spot for your family and friends to mingle, eat, drink and party.

I must comment on the ceremony room here at Ashfield house this room is bright, elegant and neutral yet eclectic and quirky all at the same time. With its vaulted ceiling this unique room offers a space that can be transformed and accept any theme or colour scheme but also looks simply stunning with minimal styling.

During the day we worked with the talented photographer Will Fisher, Will captures all aspects of the day in a photojournalistic style which provides spontaneous and creative images that tell a story of your wedding, it was great to work along side a professional that has the same goals as ourselves for the couple, every wedding is different and its great to work with each couple to discover and then portray their personality and love for each other.

The Blossom Room did a fabulous job with the flowers and decorations, stunning bouquets for Lesley and the bridesmaids aswell as delicate decoration in the ceremony room and centre pieces for the wedding breakfast. Carol is a fully qualified floral designer and specialises in weddings and events floristry. The Blossom room provide luxury flowers at the right price without compromising on design and they did beautiful arrangements for Jonathan and Lesley.

The evening was packed with great entertainment including a big surprise for the bride and groom, after the first dance lesley’s uncle got them both seated comfortably infront of the dance floor before introducing a traditional Ukrainian dance group. They provided fabulous costumes and specialised dancing to get everybody clapping and cheering along and it was a really nice touch of some family tradition for lesley. The energy and atmosphere in the room was high and the night of celebrating began. The couple had also arranged for Andy Harrison the magician to entertain their guests after the wedding breakfast and his magic was brilliant, he certainly confused the guests with his amazing skills. There was Pier Fun Casino present during the early evening so the adults could have a little fun gamble or two and the brilliant Agent Smith. These easy-going and talented group of 4 musicians are a high demand wedding band in the north west and they sure now how to get the party started. Renowned for getting the audience involved Agent Smith will get the guests up on the dancefloor and keep them there all night long.

Lesley and Jonathan your wedding day was fabulous, fun, stunning and simply gorgeous from start to finish, it was packed full of love, laughter and entertainment and you two should be proud of the wedding day you created, We loved capturing your wedding story and designing your wedding film with all the happy memories you can keep and cherish forever.

Alastair & Sasha's, Abbey House Hotel Wedding Video

Alastair and Sasha chose the epic Abbey House as their venue, filled with luxury and elegance this premium hotel and wedding venue lies at the bottom of the south lakes and is surrounded by the beautiful lake district countryside. With 61 beautifully decorated rooms with picturesque views over their manicured gardens, Abbey House is a perfect venue that offers couples the full package in which they can relax and enjoy even during the stressful planning stage of a dream wedding.

Although Alastair & Sasha don’t live near Abbey House Hotel they decided to take a trip to visit the venue and fell in love with it. The whole wedding day was held here and with Sasha having her bridal preparations on one side of the hotel and Alastair on the other side there was no way the two of them were going to see each other until the ceremony.

The ceremony was a beautiful scene, as Alastair and Sasha said their vows and looked into each others eyes you could see the love they have for each other and there was emotions around the room and even a tear from some of the bridesmaids.

The beautiful flowers were provided by POSH flowers Ltd, based in Barrow-in-Furness this florist has it all in their name Professional, Original, Stylish and Helpful. They work using the freshest of flowers and are passionate about creating a bespoke design just for you.

We had intermittent rainy showers in the morning as everyone was getting ready indoors. After the ceremony we were blessed with a sunny spell and headed outside for the canapés reception and formal photos. We then had the opportunity to take Alastair and Sasha off for a romantic walk around the gardens. A perfect scenario to capture some natural shots of the couple as the become husband and wife.

It was great to work with Sarah Louise Photography during the day, her fun personality projected into her work and we connected with our creativity. Sarah always has a smile on her face and loves the work she does, she is passionate about living life to the full and you can see in her portfolio that she likes to portray the fun, laughter and happiness within each couple she works with.

Sasha’s gorgeous bridal gown with lace detail was from The Bridal Lounge Cheshire, a designer boutique in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. Inside this stylish boutique you will be offered a one-to-one personal stylist who will create your dream bridal look, this boutique has an exquisite collection of dresses and accessories ensuring you and your family have a relaxed and enjoyable experience surrounded by inspiration of bespoke bridal wear.
