Laura and Mike got married in spring at the gorgeous Wyresdale Park, which is a beautiful barn near Preston. It was the most beautiful wedding and the sun shone all day long for this awesome couple.

I first met this wonderful couple at a wedding at Walcot Hall, where they were guests. After booking us for their wedding at Wyresdale Park they also had an engagement shoot with us here in Delamere Forest.

Bridal prep

Laura got ready at the venue with all her bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was so energetic. These girls were so much fun and I knew the day was going to be a blast! She then walked the short distance to get to the ceremony. Mike’s face lit up as soon as he saw her enter the room, which was flooded with beautiful natural light. Mike got ready nearby with his best friends. The groom travelled to the ceremony with his boys by car.

The ceremony

The ceremony was a humanist service in the barn. The space for the ceremony at Wyresdale Park is just perfect with so much natural light. During the ceremony they read their own vows. It was so much fun and so personal.

The reception

The reception was in the barn at the venue. They chose Wyresdale Park because it’s so cosy and relaxed and they could totally personalise it. It was a rustic wedding, which really suits my style. I love shooting barn weddings because it’s always such a chilled vibe.

They had a homemade bar set up in the afternoon, and a photobooth in the evening. They decorated the venue with flowers and so much colour, because it fitted with the time of year.

For dinner they had bangers and mash, which was such a great idea. The first dance was nailed by these guys, and they finished off the evening with sparklers.

The most fun part of the day for me was shooting their portraits, because they didn’t stop laughing! They also had a handfasting during the ceremony – which was a lovely touch.

The couple

Laura wore a beautiful Lyn Ashworth dress and Mike wore a suit from Moss Bross and they looked so dapper. Laura’s shoes were topshop and her make up was done by the incredible Sonara Parker who is a very good friend of ours.

Laura and Mike’s wedding was so much fun and everything I love about weddings. Here’s their awesome wedding!
