THE VILLA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Hayley and David got married last Friday at The Villa Wrea Green, which is a stunning venue in Lancashire. It was a beautiful day and the sun even made an appearance!
The Villa Wedding Photography Bride & Groom Prep
Hayley got ready in the bridal suite with her girls and the star of the show Penelope…3 going on 23, she has some sass that little girl, she’s ace !!
The atmosphere was full of excitement. David sent Hayley some gifts to open whilst she was getting ready, and the last thing David said to me was make sure you get pictures of her crying, she never cries, I want to see her get emotional!!
His gifts were perfect and Hayley did cry, she was so happy with the amazing framed constellation maps David had bought for her.
David got ready at home with the lads, Father of the bride having issues tying his tie, although he said he was a pro at it !!
The ceremony was an intimate service in the main hall. The room was full of their closest family and friends. David & Hayley decided to go for a late ceremony at 4pm, but for them it was perfect, it meant that they could create the relaxed, laid back wedding that completely reflects them as a couple. During the vows Penelope decided that she needed to talk to her mum, just as her dad was trying to say I do, she had everyone laughing.
It was a really fun, but short ceremony, David & Hayley didn’t want readings and all the fuss of a long service, so it was in and out so to speak, and off for photos and fun !!
The reception was in the orangery at the venue. They chose The Villa Wrea Green because it’s near their home and they just fell in love with it. It was a rustic, wild flower theme wedding, which was perfect for the venue and their styling. I love shooting The Villa weddings because the grounds are so pretty.
They chose to have speeches in the piano lounge after the photos, so at 6pm everyone gathered in their to listen to the hilarious speeches from all main contenders in the afternoon.
The funniest part of the day was the speeches, because the best men took David down in immense style. See photos for the calling cards made of David !! They also had their cake cutting and first dance before their meal during the party – it was the first time I’ve seen that at a wedding and I loved it.
Hayley wore a beautiful dress, I completely fell in love with it, from ChiChi London, and an evening dress from Asos and David wore the most stylish suit from Marc Darcy and they looked so incredible. Hayley’s shoes were blue suede from Miss KG, they looked bloody awesome together.
The couple met years ago at work and fell in love almost straight away and have been together ever since. They got in touch with me as I have known David from living in Kirkham and sharing the same local pub and their enquiry was really touching. They said they didn’t care about anything except having an epic party, and I thought it was awesome that they just really wanted me there.
Hayley and David’s wedding was totally epic and had such a chilled vibe. Here’s their stunning wedding!
