A vintage themed wedding at Holcombe Church, Ramsbottom with a beautiful garden wedding reception in Rossendale.
It really was an absolute pleasure to be Jess & Antony’s Wedding Photographer. From the moment I met Jess and her mother-in-law to be for a coffee, i knew this wedding would be right up my street. It was years in the making and nothing had been missed, Jess had meticulously planned all the teeny tiny details of their perfect day and with help from family and friends it all came together perfectly.
Bridal preparations were at Jess’ mum and dad’s house in Tottington, with 5 bridesmaids, thoughtful surprises and enough happy tears to flood the house, I was feeling emotional just being in the room!
When we arrived at the Shoulder of Mutton pub in Ramsbottom, Antony was enjoying one last ‘livener’ before heading to the church. The bridesmaids arrived in a VW Camper Van and the beautiful bride arrived in a VW Beetle with her dad. The ceremony was at the lovely Holcombe Church and there were many a tear as Jess and Antony finally got hitched.
Their reception was truly epic, at the home of Antony’s parents, their huge multi-leveled garden had been transformed into something even more special. A huge marquee was the location for the wedding breakfast with several other lawns and decked areas for guests to mill around and enjoy a drink. Jess has an amazing eye for detail and so there were vintage touches everywhere from the hay bale seats to the fully stocked ‘free bar’, the wedding cake was a pavlova and they had hog roast for the wedding breakfast with Prosecco from vintage tea cups for the toast- I wanted this to be my wedding!
The speeches were my favourite part of the day and possibly the FUNNIEST I have ever heard, there were many hands clamped over mouths in shock as the best man did his groom proud with embarrassing anecdotes from school days, if i’d had a drink it might have been sprayed all over the guests in front of me!
Congratulations to these gorgeous newlyweds, if married life is anything like their ability to throw a party, life will be ecstatic!
