This is Ryan and Natalie’s wedding story.
Their chosen venue was The Villa Wrea Green, set among rolling parkland and the wonderful surroundings of a Lancashire village this country retreat offers beautiful public space and luxury bedrooms for the most wonderful occasions, including the Pavilion Marquee. The Pavilion is a beautifully dressed function suite with star canopies and mood lighting which sets the atmosphere for many occasions. It was perfect for Ryan and Natalies big day, from a peaceful and tranquil afternoon wedding breakfast to a dance floor and party atmosphere in the evening is just what any bride and groom would want on their wedding day.
Ryan and Natalie had booked the amazing Elizabeth Hendry (from the live piano experience) to be their pianist, she played beautifully as the stunning bride Natalie made her entry. Being a disney themed wedding the sound of tale as old as time brought one or two tears of happiness as she made her entrance. Elizabeth also played a brilliant set during the the wedding breakfast which created a lovely atmosphere while the guests enjoyed their a la carte meal.
Kieran and Ali a husband and wife duo from Key Photography Wigan were Ryan and Natalies photographers, Kieran as the lead photographer and is described by his clients as approachable, entertaining, funny and talented. The duo offers years of experience and are definite to get the professional and creative wedding pictures that show the powerful memories and emotions from your special day.
There were some very special touches to the decoration of Ryan and Natalie’s wedding, Natalie’s grandmother designed and created the elegant 3 tier wedding cake and delicately hand made the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses, all to match the specially chosen wedding colour. As i mentioned earlier Ryan and Natalie also chose to have disney features at the wedding and aswell as having popular disney films as table names Natalie herself had created the beauty and the beast rose which took pride of place at the side of the their wedding cake. They also created a table for the guests to take a bag of treats home for their beloved fur babies, Ryan and Natalie have a beautiful doggie at home which i’m sure like a lot of other dog owners is treated like a member of the family and not just a dog. They had a stunning photograph which was taken during their pre-wedding shoot displayed on a huge collage which the the evening guests could sign around the outside. This was a brilliantly unique memory maker which i don’t often see but is such a thoughtful and wonderful idea.
The evening reception had plenty of entertainment for everyone to enjoy, The Villa’s resident DJ started the night with the conga around the Pavilion, getting all the guests in high spirits ready for the fabulous evening ahead. The Boothtube wasn’t only great fun for the guests but a great momento for Ryan and Natalie, a photo was given to the guests as well as a duplicate displayed in a memory book along with a little message for the bride and groom. The Heavenly Melted Chocolate company are a unique service that offers delicious belgium chocolate with plenty of fresh produce for dipping, we tried it and have one word, YUM! This company is truly unique as it is the only fully serving chocolate fountain company in the uk, they are there for the duration of the hire to restock and serve your guests throughout your evening celebrations.
So just as it should be Ryan and Natalie were smiling from ear to ear from the start of the day till we left them dancing the evening away. Its great to know that all their hard work paid off and they got the fairytale wedding they had dreamed of over the last 11 years of being together. We had so much fun filming and editing the fun-filled events of the day and turning it into their cherished film of a lifetime so no memories are lost in the coming years of happiness they spend as husband and wife.
Congratulations Ryan and Natalie and thank you for choosing Appleyard Productions to capture your day, it was a pleasure.
