Today I am excited to share this gorgeous Geometric styled same sex wedding with hints of copper and gold.
The couple are Tom and Dan and they were married at the Browsholme Hall and the Tithe Barn.
Images were captured by Lee Brown Photography.
Lee Brown is a wedding and portrait photographer based in in Cheshire but shooting throughout the UK and Worldwide.
He has been a full time wedding photographer since 2010 and with over 200 weddings in hi portfolio, he can’t think of anything else he would rather do.
He feels to spend the day with a couple and capture one of the most exiting times in their lives is a true honour.
His goal is simple, he wants to tell your wedding story through compelling and imaginative images.
He doesn’t tend to restrict himself to a particular style of wedding photography.
He likes to think that he draws the best elements and combine them together to give his couples the best collection of memories that he can.
He says of the couple and their day…
“Dan & Tim are the driving force behind the event company Make It Stand Out, so I was very honoured when they asked me to join them for their wedding at the stunning Browsholme Hall & Tythe Barn.”
“Built in 1507 by Edmund Parker, the Grade I listed historic house lies within the Forest of Bowland and is surrounded by picturesque gardens and parkland. I was joined by my wedding-bro Paul Williams from Ginger Beard Weddings who second shot the day with me.”
“We arrived early to spend the morning with both Dan & Tom who were self dressing their ceremony room with personalised love letters (of which they are famous for) and decorative backgrounds.”
“They were also trying to relax and prepare themselves for the day ahead with the help of their friends and family.”
“The couple helped each other get ready into their Noose & Monkey suits, styled their hair and attached their buttonholes.”
“Before the ceremony, we had a wander to the main hall for some portraits in the beautiful sunshine.”
“Soon everyone was convened in the Tythe Barn, the girls and guys of the ‘guydal party’ made their way into the ceremony, followed by the very proud parents and finally by Dan & Tom who walked hand in hand.”
“After a beautiful ceremony, the couple completed the formal part of their day and exited the barn into the sunshine.”
“The guests enjoyed delicious Pimms, Brewdog craft beers, canapés and hugs & kisses.”
“Dan & Tom were showered with confetti before donning wellies for the short walk over to the lake.”
“The sun was still shining when we arrived and the couple needed no encouragement to jump in a row boat for a jaunt around the lake before dinner.”
“After a delicious meal, the couple enjoyed a round of speeches before spending the evening chatting and laughing in the barn and on the patio outside.”
“We chased a little sunshine for some evening portraits with the views of the Ribble Valley around us.”
“The evening soon began with more guests, a vodka luge and Mike Sax.”
“The cake was cut, the first dance began and the dancing floor filled up soon after and they partied on into the night…”
I now hand over to the couple to share their love story…
How did you meet?
“We met at college whilst we were both doing our A-Levels and started working together in retail. Now we work together in our own business.”
Tell us about your Wedding Planning Journey…
“We started planning our wedding immediately after getting engaged in Amsterdam.”
“We pretty much planned the entire wedding on the night we got engaged – pinning on our pinterest boards, attending wedding fairs and by developing ideas we had seen at weddings while we were working.”
We also kept our eyes peeled for ideas coming from overseas in America etc. as we didn’t want to just reuse anything that had been overdone in the UK, we didn’t want anything ‘standard’!
Did you have a Wedding theme or colour palette?
“Our theme and colour palette was based around the idea that we didn’t want anything to be particularly ‘feminine’ as it was two lads getting married, but in keeping with some traditional wedding ideas.”
“We wanted a clean, geometric styled wedding and went for copper, rose gold, gold and used succulents and green foliage rather than anything floral.”
“We tried to keep the outfits to a pastel colour palette, keeping the groomsmaids quite plain so that we stood out.”
“We tried to show our personality in everything we did, from the decor to the menu and even the music choices for the wedding video.”
Share your best piece of advice for other couples getting married…
“Our best bit of advice would be to book suppliers that you feel you have a connection with as you will be able to get the best out of them.”
“Our photographers, videographers, caterers and the venue team were all great, so we felt completely comfortable having photos taken and it felt totally natural, considering we’re both normally really awkward in that situation!”
“We loved every supplier we had – don’t book things because they are the cheapest, but book it because its what you really want!”
