Leah and Alex’s Story

 

Wow, amazing, astonishing, awesome, brilliant, cool, excellent, fabulous, fantastic, incredible, magnificent, marvellous, outstanding, phenomenal, remarkable, sensational are all words to describe Leah and Alex’s wedding at Browsholme Hall…… I couldn’t pick one.

Another first for me; this is the first time I’ve been to Browsholme Hall in almost 15 years as a wedding Photographer, and it’s only 25 minutes from home. 

The hall is a grade 1 listed Tudor House that’s privately owned and still lived in. Imagine owning this and living there. Simply amazing. There’s a boating lake, a Lilypad pond, a pine forest, several pretty as a picture gardens, ornate Italian steps, and the simply huge lawn with it’s view of the gate.

Leah and Alex chose Browsholme Hall simply put “It’s beautiful” (Who could argue with that?). It helped on viewing that when Rebecca showed them around she was really attentive and helpful. It’s all really clean, fresh, and new feeling whilst some others can feel tired. They also loved the tithe barn converted to hold the wedding. The barn that holds the ceremony, breakfast and evening reception is atmospheric and welcoming whilst the accompanying rooms and outdoor spaces are fabulous. There’s a dedicated bridal room for getting ready in the morning. It has plenty of light coming through the windows, places to hang dresses, and sockets to plug in hairdryers, straighteners etc.

Alex proposed to Leah the day before her 30th birthday. Whilst out on a birthday celebration with all their family and friends, Alex made a speech after the cake was brought out and popped the question.

Since then, Leah and Alex (I think mostly Leah) planned the most amazing wedding day. No special theme, but based on colours to match autumn; greens, whites, naturals with a little bit of gold. Leah’s words: “It seemed to fit for a September wedding and green suits gingers, and I’m really ginger !!” No over styling, a simple and classy way of not over doing it. 

Leah chose a dress from her local bridal boutique, SAS bridal. She went for something completely different than imagined. A fishtail dress in an off white / taupe colour that felt amazing, and she didn’t want to take it off.

Alex and his groomsmen wore quality Peter Posh suits. All very handsomely finished in blue with green ties and matching pocket square. Peter Posh suits are always top quality and very comfortable.

The bridesmaid’s dresses were all different styles but the same deep green colour from David’s bridal. There are so many choices from David’s bridal, it’s like shopping in a candy store.

Sara of Flowers with passion arrived in the morning to present Leah with her wedding flowers. The bouquets were stunning white and green with a small amount of blush pink. The bridesmaids had matching bouquets and the groomsmen buttonholes. Sara is really good and attentive. Not only presenting the flowers but also showing brides how to actually hold the bouquets. A bit of a rarity these days.

Creative events dressed the venue with lots of white flowers and green foliage. They provided the centrepieces and green napkins. Accompanying these on the wedding breakfast tables were individually wrapped heart-shaped shortbread biscuits with names and the wedding date on them.

Makeup and hairstyling were taken care of by Make-up mobile to you. Leah has been looked after by these amazing ladies for over 10 years now. This made it easy for them to chat, have a laugh and get the style spot on straight away.

Celebrations Cakes in Bolton created a 3 tier white cake. Victoria sponge, carrot cake and lemon drizzle with white buttercream coating and decorated with flowers matching the bouquet. Not to forget the model of Frank on top. Frank is Leah and Alex’s 4 legged baby, a beautiful Rottweiler.

Twelve catering provided a choice menu that they helped them to develop, so each guest can choose what to eat. Everyone complimented the food as did I. The main of Beef, with mash and veg, was superb.

After the wedding breakfast, Nathan of DFC arrived to set up the evening celebration. Having worked with Nathan previously, I knew he’d give them a party to remember…. and he did.

For during the day, The Manchester string quartet played the couple in and out of the ceremony and then during the drinks reception. During the reception, there was an ice cream cart from Abbey ice cream too.

All day my photography was mostly candid with a small amount of time for some groups and then the portraits of Leah and Alex.

A further first for me was working with Ryan and his Dad, Creative Filmmakers, Ryan Murrell Videography. We had an absolute blast working together all day and Ryan is now on my list of recommended videographers. It’s fantastic to work with people like Ryan when you just get on and have fun.

A phenomenal wedding day; thanks Leah and Alex for having me and thanks to Rebecca and your amazing staff at Browsholme Hall and The Tithe Barn.
