Highlights from the wedding of Mr & Mrs Downes at Bashall Barn in Lancashire
We have had the pleasure of spending 3 great days with the Downes/Rammell Clan, first of all we had Kimberley & Mikes 2 years ago, this year we filmed Jo & James and 6 weeks after that we finally arrive at Katy & David were it just felt like we had filmed a friends wedding.
Our first trip to Bashall Barn started off a little damp to say the least but as we have repeated consistently THIS DOES NOT SPOIL A WEDDING and i think you will agree after watching the highlights above. The venue and team at Bashall really did impress us throughout the day, so helpful and accommodating to myself, Lisa and David Scholes Photography.
The rain could not stay all day and we were treated to a spot of glorious evening sun which everyone could enjoy on the HUGE balcony overlooking the Ribble Valley. We were really looking forward to Katy and Davids BIG DAY and it definitely did not disappoint, thank you for inviting us both, it was lovely seeing you all again! Ro Lisa XXX
Becks & Ash celebrated their BIG DAY with friends, family and their dog at Eaves Hall. We started off at the Bridal Preparations with David Scholes Photography and Jason from Flower Design before heading up to St Peters Church at Stonyhurst College to film The Groom & Guest arrivals, Ash was so nervous before the ceremony.
Following the ceremony we headed up to Cromwell Bridge for a few shots before joining everyone and continue the celebrations. Eaves Hall looked stunning and is definitely one of our favourite venues with amazing gardens which make a great backdrop for your wedding film. Thanks to Mr & Mrs Walker for inviting us to your Best Day, we had a blast and it was great to see one of our couples from last year.
A Stunning Spring Wedding in the heart of the Ribble Valley
“Hi Roland and Lisa, Thank you so much the video. We absolutely love it! You captured everything so perfectly. I’ve watched it 5 times already. The extras are fab too. I’d forgotten a lot of it. Thank you so much. It’s something I will treasure forever” Kayleigh
Kayleigh & David tied the knot on a bright spring day in Croston, the scenery looked picture perfect for their walk to the church. This wedding was a joy to film, so chilled out during the whole day, a great family celebration with quite a few familiar faces for us as well as one of our favourite wedding singers Alex Birtwell.
We picked rivington because as cliche as it sounds it was simply stunning. It was just the vibes we were after, the low lighting, the barn, the drapes, the fairy lights, just all of it.
What advice would you give anyone planning their own wedding?
Don’t stress! Enjoy all the planning & enjoy every minute of the day because it goes too quickly, everybody kept telling us to make sure we had a moment alone together on the day so we did & really glad we did because it was special watching everyone enjoying themselves & dancing etc!
We know it’s tough but if you had to pick a favourite moment from your amazing day, what would it be?
Favourite moment, wow that is hard.. we loved all of it! Getting ready before hand was so much fun, the build up and then being together at the top of the aisle was pretty special. Just all of it, dancing with everyone at night & the speeches, the confetti drop, the sparkler send off, the wedding night haha! Please can we do it again?
Congratulations Hannah & Joe, thank you for inviting us xxx R & L
Our last wedding of the Summer with Mr & Mrs Birtwell
Why did you choose Mitton hall for your wedding?
We chose Mitton for a few reasons; firstly it is beautiful, we know a lot of the staff and trusted them to make it perfect but our biggest reason was the sentimental value. Lewis’s mum worked there as GM when it was an Italian named ‘the stone house’ and after Lewis burnt down the family home at the age of 3 they actually lived there for a while. So there was no other choice in our mind.
Do you have a favourite moment from the whole day?
I loved every moment although the atmosphere in the church with the gospel choir was amazing and I think will be something I will never forget… lots of love in that room!
What advice would you give to an Bride & Groom who are planning their wedding?
My advice would be to plan early in bite sized pieces so it not all one big stress, take it easy and enjoy the process, don’t care too much about what everyone else wants and 100% get a credit card!
Why did you choose the The Inn at Whitewell for your wedding reception?
We had never been to the Inn before but as soon as we walked in we were taken by its charm and it’s stunning setting. The staff could not be more welcoming and helpful and we knew that this was the place for us instantly.
How did Stuart propose?
Stuart proposed on an amazing holiday in Cuba, on the beach, at sunset!! Who knew he had it in him!
I know its hard but do you have a favourite memory from the whole wedding experience?
Our favourite bit of the wedding is a bit cliché but sharing it with all our friends and family; when else do you get everybody that is special to you under one roof!
What advice would you give any Bride & Groom who is looking to plan their wedding?
My advice is to be organised and book things well in advance to avoid disappointment! But also to trust the experts; they have done it all a million times before! Ensure to book people who make you feel good, who you can work alongside but also that can work alongside each other. Build a team around you that you love!
