Cara & Brett: Eaves Hall, North West Wedding Photography

I met Cara and her friend Rachel together at a wedding fair and after another meet up over a brew and cake they both decided to book which is great getting to meet them all again in the summer!  Brett could attend the first meeting being from South Africa but we got to meet closer to the wedding to talk over the final plans.  They had decided to marry at St Mary Magdalene Church in Clitheroe before heading over to the stunning Eaves Hall.  The morning however took place at Eaves hall where they have a separate building for the girls to stay over the night before.  Everyone was in good spirits in the morning while getting ready and there was plenty of laugher which is the perfect way to start the day!  The laughter didn't stop during the service with the Priest being real friendly and laid back throughout.  It was then over to Eaves Hall to continue the party while the rain threatened outside.  This certainly didn't dampen the mood though and it's hard to not have a good time in such a beautiful setting!  Eaves Hall is a truly breath taking venue with stunning decor and character throughout while leaving the reception room neutral enough for you to add your own personal splash to it.  The speeches, which started in different African languages, were hilarious and they had everyone laughing and even crying at parts.  We managed in the evening to get a break in the rain so dashed outside for some couples photos while the sun was setting.  The party didn't stop in the evening with lots of dancing, a vintage sweet cart and an awesome photobooth!  

The beginning...

I met Brett at my future sister-in-law’s 21st Birthday. Brett was over playing cricket for the summer and we ended up going on several dates…which resulted in me booking flights to South Africa to visit him in the winter! After about 3 and a half years of going back and forth to SA, he proposed on Christmas Day in front of the Christmas tree! 

The venue...

We feel in love with Eaves Hall – It’s just beautiful and the staff are incredible. We visited a few places but felt that Eaves Hall was in a whole other league – just perfect. We went for the vintage, country feel with a touch of class (to fit in with Eaves Hall decor!) So wood, neutral colours and silver.

The flowers ...

I wanted the bridesmaids in taupe to fit in with the colour scheme and then the peaches in the bouquets added a touch of colour to the day. The Pink Camellia provided the beautiful flower arrangements and bridal party flowers. I designed the room, raiding Home Sense (which is my favourite shop!).

The ceremony...

The ceremony was perfect; as you know, the vicar was a character and had everyone laughing and feeling relaxed. Everyone told me afterwards how perfect the ceremony was. I couldn’t have asked for more. The right balance of ‘formal religious wedding ceremony’ vs ‘light-hearted, fun-filled enjoyment’. The readings were beautiful and read so eloquently.

The photography...

Thank you so much for being a big part of our day and providing a relaxed (and stress-free) atmosphere were all of us could enjoy the day, from start to finish, knowing that you were professionally and passionately capturing every single part of it!!

The first dance...

We selected 1000 years for our first dance song, just because we like it – nothing more to add! We don’t really have a song, but Brett has always said this song reminds him of me!

The entertainment...

In the evening we had a saxophonist – Tom – who is a friend of mine from school and in the day my friend Ross played piano for the drinks reception.

The words of wisdom...

Just enjoy every minute of it!! It goes so fast so make sure you take it all in!

The suppliers...

Claire Whittaker was my hair stylist.
Kelly Kos was the make-up artist.
Brett sorted the cars…so no idea!
