Today I am excited to share a beautiful Daisy inspired Lancashire Wedding with an elegant rustic vibe,
Megan and Joe were married at the Gibbon Bridge Hotel in Preston in a beautiful celebration with their family and friends.
Images were captured by Kirsten Platt Photography.
Kirsten Platt a Lancashire based photographer living in the Ribble Valley happy to travel anywhere to capture those special moments. I love documenting your wedding story as the day unfolds.
She says of the couple…
I’ve known Megan since she was little and I’m also very good friends with her mother Heather.
So I have to say Megan and Joe‘s wedding was that little bit extra extra special for me, it was a real honour to be asked to photograph their special day.
It was probably one of the hottest days in July last year that Megan and Joe got married. The sun beamed all day not a cloud in the sky.
The grounds at Gibbon Bridge were stunning and with the flowers in full bloom it couldn’t of been any prettier.
I hand over to Bride Megan to share the couples story…
Tell us a wee bit about yourselves…
I have been working as a finance lawyer in the city of London for the past few years and Joe is a lawyer turned medic currently working as a junior doctor in Harlow, Essex.
We live in South Woodford, North East London, with our two overindulged cats Mila and Connie. In our free time we enjoy watching films, cooking and (when the weather’s nice) the occasional bike ride.
How did you meet as a Couple?
We went to school together and I fell for Joe on a school trip in year 9 before daring to ask him out a few weeks later.
We broke up after a year or so and went our separate ways, but then got back together towards the end of uni on Boxing Day 2010.
When did you get engaged?
Joe proposed whilst we were on holiday in Slovenia during a picnic by Lake Bohinj was a beautiful setting and even though we’d talked about getting engaged in the months leading up to it, I was still
totally taken aback!
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
I knew I wanted a simple but modern dress and really struggled to find anything within budget that fitted the bill so my Mum got in touch with a local wedding dressmaker who had actually made my prom dress when I was 16 so I felt I could trust her.
Once I had the dress I found it easier to pick a theme… I knew I wanted white flowers but wanted a slightly unique slant on it.
Daisies fitted perfectly with the elegant but rustic vibe that I had in my head and we kind of went from there.
What was the best bit of your day?
The ceremony was totally surreal and I welled up which I was completely unprepared for.
The whole day was a beautiful dream. We also loved the sunshine and the silent disco!
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Don’t do it. Just kidding! Its easy to say (and not always so easy to do!) but try not to put pressure on yourselves… it will be a fab day, you will be in your element and your guests will bring
their best selves along.
Even if everything doesn’t go according to plan you won’t care because you’ll be having the time of your life. Enjoy the preparations and the big day
