Crazy Golf Themed Colshaw Hall Wedding
Golf Themed Wedding
Lis and Chris, we loved your golf-themed Colshaw Hall Wedding! Thank you for allowing us the privilege of capturing your day at this wonderful venue.
It’s a luxury venue set in idyllic grounds with exclusive use
You packed a lot into the day – lots of surprises in store – we threw the schedule away and just went with the flow of the day!
Only fitting that Golf-mad Lisa and Chris used Golf for the theme of the day – Golf venues as the table names, golf ball favours with their logo and date of wedding on.
The wedding cray golf supplied by Lancashire Wedding Golf was an inspired surprise for Chris and all the guests loved it. All wedding themed and personalised for the couple
Already on a high from Liverpool winning the Champions League the night before this wedding just topped the weekend off fabulously.
Bridal Preps Colshaw Hall Wedding
Irlam Lodge at the beginning of the drive to the Hall provided a perfect place for the girls to stay overnight in readiness for make-up and hair preps
So much space to enjoy and then even more space in the glorious bridal suite for the getting dressed and final preparations.
Beautifully fitted out with large bedroom and en-suite as well as a dressing room with spacious wardrobes and hook to hang the dress
– all careful considerations for the room
Meanwhile, the guys arrived and checked into their rooms at the other end of Colshaw Hall.
We were able to cover both preps as all on one site, flitting from room to room.
Loved capturing the reaction of the bridesmaids, seeing Lisa’s beautiful dress or the first time
They were a great group of girls, being hands o with steaming the dresses.
Soon it was time to make their way over to the ceremony location – a purpose-built ceremony room.
of course, a golf buggy was used as transportation, first for the bridesmaids and then Lisa and her proud dad
Running a little late at this time and whilst there were some last minute changes to the ceremony vows we made the most of the opportunity with some pictures.
Soon it was time to enter for Lisa to meet her groom and a beautiful ceremony ensued.
Pianist Benjamin Clark added a touch of elegance with his music which continued throughout the drinks reception and wedding breakfast
The bridal flowers and flower decor in the venue were stunning, perfectly complimenting the blue of the bridesmaid’s dresses.
Smiles from Chris and Lisa as they greet each other and I do believe a tear from Dad.
One happy bride and groom exited to the confetti throwing from the guests, looking radiant.
The decorated golf buggy then took them off to their reception at the Pele Suite while the guests followed behind.
The crazy golf was a bit hit and just before the group shots another surprise was a dove release – always tricky to capture as happens so fast, but we did okay I think!
The weather was not completely on our side and groups were interrupted with rain before the wedding breakfast.
However plenty of clean space inside to finish the groups and beautiful rooms to take portraits inside – really spoilt for choice at this venue.
So many photo opportunities.
Beautiful elegant cake from Suzanne Harvey Cakes. The detail included their wedding logo/initials to fit in with the theme

Happily, after the wedding breakfast, the sun came out and our couple had time to play some golf – Chris even got a hole in one. Quite competitive this couple!
Time also before the evening party to capture some beautiful shots in the extensive gardens. A particular request from Lisa was by the Acer tree in the Japanese garden area
Then with the golden evening light, it was time for some fun with the bridal party.
A specific request from Lisa – a ring shot with the golf ball favor
The evening kicked off with cake cutting and plenty of dancing. The live band certainly kept guests on the dance floor.
Chris couldn’t resist donning a Liverpool shirt to dance in – after the first dance of course
