Lisa and Phil’s Wedding – Avenham Park, Preston
Lisa and Phil are such an awesome fun couple that we were excited to spend the day with them photographing their wedding. They had chosen to get married at ‘The Belvedere’ within Avenham Park, Preston and hold their reception at ‘The Pavillion’, both of which where just the perfect setting for this unique couple’s wedding.
We started our morning with Lisa and her bridesmaids at her house where hair and make up stations had been set up both up and downstairs. The house was full of laughter from start to finish as they were a great set of girls to be around. Champagne was popped, herbal teas all around whilst Lisa’s sister Emma finished creating some beautiful bouquets.
The boys were enjoying their pre-ceremony drinks at ‘The Continental’ next to Avenham park before they took the walk through the park to ‘The Belvedere’ which looked stunning as it was dressed with ribbons and flowers. Lisa approached the ceremony with the car dropping her and her bridesmaids off at the bottom of the steps so she could begin her walk down the aisle with her dad.
The smiles on both Lisa and Phil’s faces was overwhelming as they saw each other and the looks between them throughout the ceremony was heartwarming. Passer’s by through the park stopped and watched the couple tie the knot and then make their exit as husband and wife. Champagne greeted the guests as the exited the ceremony area and give their well wishes to the happy couple. We had the perfect background of the park and pavillion for our group shots which the guests where great at helping us get together. As time passed by the guest’s started to make their way down to the reception which had been beautifully decorated with lanterns, flowers and fairy lights. A great set up of tables in a banquet style allowed everyone to see the whole room and have a great view of the head table ready for a fantastic set of speeches with Phil melting everyone’s heart as he recalled how they met and his feelings for Lisa.
As the light outside dimmed and evening guests arrived it was time for the first dance and as Phil and Lisa limbered up to perform their moves a great atmosphere surrounded them.
We had such an amazing time at this wedding and had the best playground to play in with the park all around us. Adding to this an absolutely fantastic couple who were very willing to pose and take in every moment of their day.
