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
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

What made you choose Owen House Barn for your BIG DAY?
We wanted a barn wedding as it was in October, we really liked the idea of a venue that we could light with candles and make it feel warm and personal with autumnal colours which we managed to achieve. When we went to see Owen house for the first time we fell in love with it, it’s just got the loveliest feel to it and the staff are brilliant. They make you feel so welcome from the off and particularly Vanessa, Dan, Chris & James. I couldn’t recommend it enough!
How did Chris propose? (gushy details allowed) We were due to fly to Santorini from London so the night before We stayed in London and went to sushi samba for a meal as id always wanted to go. He then surprised me with tickets to go the viewing platform of the shard. I was none the wiser, we went up and spent around an hour looking around – what I didn’t realise was that the floor was clearing out whilst we were there! It ended up being only me and Chris, my favourite song playing, candles and flower petals on the floor and a photographer hiding round the corner! Turns out he had been planning it for 6 months & had hired the top floor of the shard out to propose! I was gobsmacked and it was just perfect.
If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would it be? Favourite moment of the wedding, it’s so hard to pick! If I had to choose it would be walking down the aisle with my dad, seeing Chris smiling at the bottom and having everyone I love around me.
What advice would you anyone planning their wedding?
Advice – take every moment in. It’s so cliche but the day goes SO fast and it’s over before you know it. Also – hire a videographer!!! It will enable you to look back at your day and remember all of the little things you have forgotten and the things you don’t see! You spend so much time and money on one day it makes sense to have it documented so you can look back on it for years to come!!
Nick & Kate’s day was absolutely amazing (I’m pretty sure I added a few swear words to that remark when I spoke to them at the end of the night) the guests were on top form, I would love to know who filmed themselves mooning my lens whilst I was in another room 🙂 I think i will save that footage for the deleted scenes!
Thanks to The Villa, Wrea Green & The Big White Events Company for organizing a wonderful day for Mr & Mrs Rimmer, myself & photo buddy Tim Emmerton loved the attention to detail you brought to their special day. Great to see Floristic Flowers again and the awesome Groove Thing who kept the dancefloor pumping all night 🙂
Congratulations Nick & Kate x
