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
“Omg we can’t tell you how much we love it, not that we were ever in any doubt we would. Thanks so much for capturing our day so perfectly… we know you were rushed off your feet flying solo! It was so lovely having you as part of our day, we feel like you’re part of the crew now and we hope we see you at every wedding in our group”

Why did you choose Bartle Hall for your wedding?
We loved Bartle Hall from the first time we went to view it. We loved the two rooms and the idea that we could have our ceremony and wedding breakfast / evening reception in different parts of the hotel. We loved the Balmoral for the evening as everything is all in one place so everybody can be together.
How did Graham propose? (gushy details allowed)
Aw, he proposed on my birthday in Iceland (the country, not the shop 😂) just as it had turned midnight… we were absolutely freezing cold after being stood outside for 3 hours waiting for the northern lights to appear but not even a twinkle! Haha.
If you had to pick a favourite moment, what would it be?
It’s so hard to choose a favourite moment, I loved the ceremony and the speeches!
I knew we were having you before we were even engaged, I saw a friends video (Nikki and Darren Parkinson) and from that moment I said if I ever got married, I had to have you and you were the first thing we booked after the venue!
Congratulations Elly & GG, thanks for inviting us x
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!
We have started a new style of blog for our summer season, you can find the first episode below which features lots of our favorite venues and suppliers.
June was a mad month for us and July is going to be even more packed, this is the busiest month of any year we have ever had.
Eaves Hall invited us along to their Botanical Wedding Fayre recently, here is a short highlights video we produced for them.
We filmed our last WedCarKaraoke in May and managed to persuade 3 of our former Brides to join us for a sing along and to chat about their weddings.
