Following on from last week’s blog post, my feet have now recovered from doing a marathon 12 hour stint covering Leanne & Ed’s wedding. As mentioned in the previous post, the location for their ceremony had been kept a secret from their guests right until the very last minute when they were told to board a gorgeous vintage London Route Master bus and head to Avenham Park in Preston for the formalities.
As is typical for a bank holiday weekend, the weather did its best to put a dampener on things and at 8:00 in the morning, it was absolutely sodden as I arrived at Cuerden Valley to meet up with Ed, and await the arrival of the guests. Fortunately, the rain eased, and eventually stopped, just in time for the departure to Avenham.
Once all the guests had arrived, and enjoyed a delicious looking choice of cakes and tea, Ed made the announcement that they were all heading to a different location for the wedding ceremony. Parked outside was a classic vintage London Route Master red bus which whisked all the guests to Avenham park where they were then taken to the beautiful pagoda in the park and greeted by musicians and (luckily for us all), a clearing sky and even a bit of sun!
Shortly after this, Leanne arrived with her dad, sister Gemma and little Cassie who was the most adorable flower girl.
After the ceremony, we had a bit of time to get some fun and formal group and family photos, and then Ed, Leanne and I headed off to get some shots in the beautiful surroundings of the park, before heading back to Cuerden Valley park and the secret walled garden for their reception.
I really admire all the work and effort that they had put in to making the day well and truly their own. The sense of closeness, family, love and friendship could be felt all day long and it was a joy and a pleasure to be part of their day.
Here is a selection of the shots from what was a brilliant wedding, and one that I really enjoyed!
