Matt and Catherine’s wedding was originally due to take place last year. But with the arrival of their little girl, Luna, things were postponed until this year. Matt organised most of the wedding (a big shout out for the grooms out there who get stuck in with wedding planning!) and what a fantastic job he did with it, too. We were very happy to head over to Lancashire for their Beeston Manor wedding photography just last month.
October has historically offered up some of the best weather of the year for our wedding couples. This year it hadn’t been so great in the run up to Matt and Catherine’s wedding but on the morning of their wedding, the sun was shining and all was well in the world!
Colin joined Catherine and the girls whilst they got ready at Beeston Manor, and I joined Matt and his two best men when they arrived at the venue as well. There were so many details to capture at this wedding, and such fantastic decor (only a very small part of which is featured below). Everything looked amazing, including the bride and groom, of course! Matt and the boys wore black tie (what man doesn’t look good in a tux?) and Catherine opted for a simple but oh so sophisticated dress which completed their look perfectly!
Weddings at Beeston Manor
Beeston Manor is a family run venue in a rural location near Preston. A beautifully converted barn, with two separate function rooms for your ceremony and wedding breakfast/reception, it has lots of natural light which we love.
There are 14 bedrooms available so you can stay on site and there are plenty of other hotel/accommodation options close by for your guests.
The venue is licensed for civil ceremonies so you can marry on site before your reception kicks in, and the whole place can be yours exclusively.
Food is all cooked in house so again, no need for outside caterers, which is ideal if you want everything taken care of in one package.
What did Matt and Catherine say about us?
“We ABSOLUTELY LOVE the photos! They’re exactly what we wanted – everyone has said they are so natural and such good quality…we just wanted to say a massive thank you to you both for everything you did on the day. Colin, you seem to have made a lasting impression on our guests too…in a very good way! Everyone loved you haha! Thanks again, we can’t wait to receive the USB so we can print them all off!”
