Leanne and Gavin’s Beeston Manor Wedding
We had an amazing day with these two awesome people on their wedding day at Beeston Manor. They were so laid back about the wedding which really made it something special. A shout out to their guests who were awesome, super easy to talk to and generally all round amazing.
Just. Bloomin’. Awesome.
Where/how did you originally meet?
We meet in Walkabout in Burnley we use to work together and it went from there…
How did Gavin propose?
Gav proposed at home still romantic but he was to scared to wait cause he thought I’d find the ring.
Why did you choose Beeston Manor?
We went to Dublin the January after we got engaged we were going to leave it a couple of years before we started planning anything but when you book a flight that gets you there at 7am and your stuck in the pub (how unfortunate) we decided to see what was out there. We found Beeston Manor and instantly feel in love; their grounds are amazing and the beams and the layout of the ceremony was perfect. We rang them sat in the bar in Dublin and went and looked round when we got back our mind was set and we booked that same day, we couldn’t have chosen anything better – it was just the perfect venue and the perfect day.
What did you want your wedding to be like?
We just wanted to be relaxed and to share our special day with all our friends and family
What was your favourite part of the day?
Apart from learning our a,b,c! Marrying my best friend with all the people that mean so much to me around to celebrate
Have you got any advice for future brides?
Trying to hold the tears back or else you get the many faces of the bride, and don’t worry about all the small details it all comes together in the end
Tell us about your honeymoon….
We went to Saint Lucia for a week it was just amazing our originally plan was a week of relaxation although we both became qualified open water scuba divers sitting in our room one night of our honeymoon to do an exam was not what I envisaged but going out in the water the next morning made it all totally worth it
What was important to you when choosing your photographers?
Choosing photographers was a big thing for us because we aren’t people that have many photos together, we are very relaxed so didn’t want someone constantly in your face. We met Iain & Suz at the open day in Beeston Manor and they are just so friendly and easy to get on with plus you had the added bonus of the 2 photographers, with a pre wedding shoot and full day photography included it was a no brainer. We went to Rivington ‘beach’ for our pre wedding photoshoot and knew we had made the right decision – they are such lovely people and the photos were spot on we couldn’t wait to see our actual wedding photos. On the day they captured the best moments without us even realising you did them and got on so well with all our guests so much that one of my bridesmaids have booked them for her own wedding!
