Katie & Brian at Lakeview Manor

Autumnal magic

Katie and Brian married at Lakeview Manor on Saturday. It was a gorgeous bright and sunny autumnal day, which best shows off the gorgeous colours of the leaves surrounding the venue.

Bridal details

Katie got ready in the lower clock tower with the two mothers. Her maid of honour Lesley did her make up, and Chantelle from Parker’s mobile hairdressing did her hair. Her gorgeous lace sleeved dress came from Abbi Chapel Bridal.
Katie painstakingly made all the paper flowers, while Brian arranged them into the spectacular bouquet.

Groom prep

Brian and his men got ready upstairs which made groom prep photos logistically possible. It’s always a joy to be able to capture both sides of the prep.
Brian had Batman cufflinks and belt. He wore a green tie and waistcoat while the other men wore purple.

The men also had novelty socks. Every part of the outfits was personalised to the individual, including items on the buttonholes such as football badges and batman emblems.

I can’t think of a better time of year for flame haired brides like Katie to get married. It’s as if the surroundings were determined to match her.

Entrance to ceremony
Making an Entrance

Katie timed her entrance into the ceremony room to a crescendo in the chosen track. She walked elegantly like a royal bride on her father’s arm.

The Ceremony

The ceremony itself was full of personal details. The couple made personal vows to each other. The whole room filled with music as the fabulous voices of the guests in a rendition of A Million Dreams from the Greatest Showman.

The little details
All the details

Katie & Brian spent, what must have been months making all the special details of the day. Impressively, Brian made the multi-coloured Love letters and the sweet cart himself.

On every seat in the ceremony room, there was a bag filled with confetti, sweeties and bubbles. It made for a fantastic flurry of confetti.

Another little surprise and show of individuality, the men all sported super-hero t-shirts under their suits.

Glorious sunshine

We took Katie & Brian away from all their guests so they had a few moments alone. The light this time of year is always gorgeous.

 I just loved the colours and the light we had on Saturday. It really is the best time of year.

The Speeches

Given that the father of the bride and the best man are all involved in Amateur Pantomine, you can imagine the laughter during the speeches. The best man chose to do his speech using song lyrics and movie titles only.

The Rings

Katie’s wedding ring was from a Disney collection. The Beauty and the Beast Rose matched her necklace she wore.

It would be rude not to include a night shot!

Love is all you need

Maybe they’ll use this one in the advertising when they put their love signs into production?

We had a bit of fun with the empty frame during the gap before the evening party kicked off.

The first dance

Katie & Brian bravely did a great routine for their first dance. They got a round of applause half way through which goes to show how well it went down.
Ater the first dance, the Pantomine Group did a ballroom routine to Tale as Old as Time. It was lovely.
Brian is a dj (one with the most lighting equipment we’ve ever seen). He set his rig up and managed mostly to stay away and enjoy his night.
