Live, Love, Laughter were the words used by this Bride and Groom as a theme to their day and it really was a wedding filled with these three things.
The Groom, Andrew (Simo), is actually a good friend of my Husbands through their love of Burscough Richmond FC-and, it turns out, a love of Heinz Tomato Ketchup-and I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Emma, the Bride, over the years too as I’ve gotten to know everyone here after my move from Nottingham, to Liverpool to Lancashire!
The day greeted us with beautiful sunshine in Burscough and when I arrived at Emma’s house we were welcomed with the smell of fresh pastries and hairspray as bridal preparations got under-way.
Her hair was being perfected by Donna from Cabello’s in Ormskirk (where I also happen to get my hair done).
Emma’s dress was incredible and I couldn’t wait to see her in it. Thankfully I didn’t have to wait too long as the morning went so quickly! It’s the reason I arrive in plenty of time to capture the morning of the wedding as it’s the main part of the day that will go by in a blur.
Over with the Groom bacon butties and champagne were the order of the day as well as a healthy dose of sky sports news.
Once Andrew had figured out how to get his waistcoat on they headed over to St John’s Church in Burscough and waited patiently for the bridal party to arrive.
The ceremony was full of emotions. Emma and Andrew grinned like cheshire cats for most of it and after being pronounced husband and wife their guests were treated to a performance by their nephews (I say nephews as Leo made a little appearance towards the end, cute).
After the shower of confetti we all made our way over to Lancashire Manor (Near Skelmersdale and Wigan) to welcome our newlyweds and capture Evie from Chapter Photography work her magic with some couple shots and the family group shots as we filmed all the nonsense in-between.
All this squeezed in before heading in to the beautiful Great Hall (now that really does have the wow factor with it’s rustic exposed stone, wooden beams and high ceiling) for the wedding breakfast.
In the evening we were treated to cupcakes, a romantic first dance, more bacon butties and even an impromtu Gangnam Style from little Leo.
Then I had to lock the video camera away so I could enjoy a bit of the evening as a guest, and what an evening it was! Thank you Mr and Mrs Simpson for having me! 🙂
