Relaxed Fun Cheshire Marquee Wedding: Lydia & Peter
We had previously covered the Cheshire marquee wedding of Lydia’s sister Hannah and Andrew about 3 years ago… the fancy dress wedding of the Zegg’s!
So we were delighted to cover Lydia and Peter’s home Marquee wedding. On paper it looked a very similar wedding – same home preps, horse and carriage ride down to their local country church at Burton and back for the Cheshire marquee wedding reception. Sisters however are chalk and cheese so it keeps things interesting and proves that weddings at same venues can have a different vibe and style.
Lydia admits she is laid back and very much last minute – Peter had done all the email communication with us beforehand re timings and groups
So we arrived at preps and not surprisingly both Lydia and Hannah were getting the marquee tables decorated, table plans done and cake decorated!
Leaswood Grange is a gorgeous house and full of family mementoes. The earrings were a 21st birthday gift for mum and like the small bible brooch are antiques
Always a challenge to be do something different with details. The gorgeous flowers were captured in the nursery chair and baby cradle.
Lydia was really grateful we just go with the flow of what is happening and not to have to pose.
She looked gorgeous in her Angelica Bridal Gown and her flower girl had a matching dress too
CEREMONY St Nicholas Burton
Its was blue skies at the church -one of the hottest August Saturdays, most unusual for a bank holiday too!
Bride was traditionally late and a long serviced followed so we were chasing the time a little
out to glorious sunshine and confetti on the steps before being driven away in her landau style horse and carriage
A beautiful country wedding lots of family involved in the bridal party with nephews and nieces and their own two year old.
RECEPTION – CHESHIRE MARQUEE WEDDING
Wonderful home made cakes, prosecco and delicious canapés from Cheekychilli catering ensued on the lawn whilst the string quartet were playing.
Family formals over time to mingle and capture some bride and groom shots before entering the marquee in the adjacent farm field
The table were named after favourite books and were adorned with pretty pastel coloured flowers matching those of the bridal and bridesmaids boquets
Guests were treated to a delicious meal and then followed the entertaining speeches.
Evening party soon followed and another treat was the Motown Magic band (travelled all the way from Bristol) who were excellent and had the dance floor packed!
A wonderful day enjoyed by all and so glad the sunshine was out for such a memorable day for Peter & Lydia
A joy to be back with your families again and we wish you much happiness and health
