Ashfield House in Standish (near Wigan) is one of my local all inclusive wedding venues and now, a firm favourite after filming Rebecca and Nathan’s fun wedding!

They were hoping for a fun yet relaxed wedding at a venue that boasts being all about a family home feel and I was there to capture it all as their wedding videographer.

A day filled with chilled vibes in the morning, crazy golf AND a Mr and Mrs quiz, I know you’ll LOVE watching this wedding video as much as I loved making it…

A Chilled Wedding Morning at Ashfield House

I got to start my morning with Rebecca and her favourite people over in the spacious Sitting Room at Ashfield House.

Hair and make-up were well under way with the girls in their rollers and pin curls and matching pink satin dressing gowns. With Anna May Makeup and Duncan Fisher Hair chosen to be the ones to get them wedding ready!

Rebecca was super calm and chilled as she got ready for her big day.

I was soon joined by the amazing Sarah Maria Photography and we both worked discreetly away capturing all the fun of Bridal prep.

My second/camera assistant Paul got to hang out with the guys over at their home near Chorley. Filming them enjoying bacon butties and faffing with ties, it’s always a wonderful contrast to the Brides morning!

Everyone was soon ready to make their way to the ceremony room at Ashfield House…

A Relaxed Ceremony at Ashfield House

The ceremony room is such a beautiful space and the perfect blank canvas to add your own personal touched.

The Blossom Room were on hand to add a little something with a stunning hanging floral piece at the end of the aisle. Along with beautiful rustic bouquets for the Bridal party.

Guests were soon seated and Rebecca made her way down the grand stairs at Ashfield House and finally down the aisle…

Wedding Videography at Ashfield House

Rebecca and Nathan wisely chose two of us to film their wedding which gives the added bonus of two angles during the wedding ceremony.

This meant I could stay with her right until the moment she walked down the aisle and Paul was there to capture Nathan patiently waiting for her to arrive.

I LOVE seeing that moment from both sides. It really does pass by in the blink of an eye and it’s amazing to be able to relive it again.

I should know, I’ve been a Bride and a videographer for over 11 years with the pressure of filming that moment!

Crazy Golf and Fun Garden Games

I’d known since Rebecca and Nathan booked that one of the things they were SO excited about was the crazy golf.

I also know it wasn’t JUST about the games but the two awesome guys that run Crazy 9 golf hire. And after spending the day filming them work, I can see why they wanted them to be a part of their day too.

Not only did they supply a wedding themed crazy golf for guests to enjoy but there were other garden games including a revolving round table tennis table and giant jenga.

One jenga game went on for quite a while and was taken so seriously it had most of the wedding crowded round to see who would be the loser…

Wedding Speeches and Mr and Mrs Quizes

With the speeches going before their wedding breakfast you tend to think maybe the speakers are nervous but they all stood up with confidence!

Lots of personal stories, a bit of banter and a Mr and Mrs Quiz from the Best Man made for a great set of speeches for the wedding meal.

Ashfield House not only looked after all the wedding guests with incredible food but us suppliers were in for a treat too. I can’t thank them (and Rebecca and Nathan) enough for really spoiling us that day!

Evening Celebrations at Ashfield House

Well, the guests had so much fun during the afternoon with Crazy 9 mobile golf they were out in the evening too.

The leader board was looking full so it was clear everyone was really getting competitive over the games!

Soon everyone was called in for the cake cutting and first dance before enjoying the rest of the evening together.
