Ribby Hall Wedding Photography – A relaxed winter wedding full of luxury & sparkle
Stephanie & Brad got married in December at their local church in the village of Wesham, then on to Ribby Hall. It was a beautiful wedding and the sun shone all day long!!
The excitement before the wedding
Stephanie got ready at her parent’s house with all her bridesmaids and her Mum. It was a fast paced morning with hair and makeup downstairs, bridesmaids laughing drinking tea and maybe a few prosecco’s!!
Brad got ready at home with his Best Man and ushers, they were super chilled and had everything ready and prepped the night before by Stephanie, so it was just a case of turn up and get changed, maybe have a little whiskey for the nerves and off to the church.
The ceremony was an intimate service at the village church, their Vicar was fantastic and had the guests laughing and even calmed Steph & Brads nerves. The church was decorated with amazing wintery blue & white flowers which the couple had chosen, along with giant balloons which were finished with ivy, and the giant Christmas tree was still up at the altar, it felt like a crisp wintery wedding throughout the whole day.
After the ceremony
The guests came flooding out of the church to congratulate Steph & Brad, then everyone headed the short distance to Ribby Hall. They chose Ribby Hall as it was close by & they could personalise the room with their icy coloured décor, sparkles and fresh flowers with a rustic twist.
It was a winter wedding, and I love a bloody good winter wedding. as it brings the most gorgeous light. Ribby Hall has a vast amount of places for gorgeous photos. We thought we would take advantage of the time of year and get up into Ribby Halls popular Santa’s Grotto in the Tree House, we used lots of creative angles and tricks to bend the light and create some amazing photos filled with fairy lights!!
Stephanie wore a Stella York dress and Brad wore a blue 3 piece suit. They looked incredible!!
The couple met 8 years ago and have been together ever since. Brad asked Steph to marry her in 2016 in their first home together and from that day the couple planned their awesome winter wedding with lots of detail and personal touches.
It was Stephanie’s mum Julie who got in touch about the wedding photos, she worked at the primary school my son attended, so I have known Julie for over 10 years. I loved that she thought of me to capture the wedding. They opted for the photography & videography package so that they had every angle covered. Lauren & I work together on lots of weddings, she is very cool and an awesome videographer!!
Steph and Brads advice on planning your wedding…do not stress!! Enjoy the ideas phase and let it be a reflection of your own style and taste. Most importantly take some time out from the day, just the two of you to have 15 minutes together to take it all in and breath.
Steph & Brad’s wedding was everything I love about weddings, personal to them, filled with fun, lots of dancing, and the Best Man doing the worm across the dance floor without warning !!
