Kirsten says of the couples lovely rustic inspired winter wedding….
Lisa and Joes winter wedding was held at Ferrari’s Country House, a beautiful hotel with immaculate gardens on the outskirts of Longridge in Lancashire.
My morning was firstly spent with all the ladies and Lisa’s dad at her parents farm in Thornley a room filled with laughter champagne and makeup.
We had also arranged a quick photoshoot of all the boys who were arriving by tractor at their local pub for a quick pint before the wedding.
Which then just gave me time to get back to the girls for the final touches. Before we heading off to church for the the I do’s.
It was a beautiful ceremony led by Lisa’s Uncle who is the Father at their family Church which I feel made things a bit more personal and a little extra special.
We did just a few Bridal party photos and candid’s before everyone left for Ferrari Country House for the reception. On arrival canopy’s and drinks were served.
Confetti and family photos were next then a few couple portraits in the grounds, we had a little rain but that didn’t phase Lisa and Joe they did so well. Who doesn’t love a good umbrella shot.
Speeches were next and then it was time for everyone to enjoy their meal.
Evening soon arrived with more guests arriving the cake was cut before the first dance then everyone partying the night away..
Beautiful Bride Lisa says of the couples love story…
How did you meet?
We both met for the first time at the Alston Arms, I was having a meal with friends and Joe came in for a pint after work!
Tell us about the Engagement…
We went to Scotland for a little getaway. Joe got down on one knee in our log cabin and asked me to marry him, and I said YES!
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
We didn’t want a long engagement so we got on with the planning straight away!
We booked the church and the venue and then everything else followed on from that.
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
A rustic and traditional winter wedding, with burgundy for our bridesmaids and brown tweed suits for the lads.
What was the best bit of your day?
Everything was just how we dreamed, but I would say the church ceremony just topped it off with my great uncle marrying us, it really made it extra special!
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Step back half way through the day and take a few minutes to look around and take it all in. It’s amazing!
