Sandburn Hall Wedding Photography

Bryony & Tim

Sandburn Hall Wedding Photography  – BRYONY SAYS: We got engaged on the 3rd of July 2018, after being together for 10 years, 10 months and 10 days and Tim asked ‪at 10:10 in the morning. We were staying in a treehouse for a few nights in Kent when he popped the question. (Fun Fact – it was also the same day that England finally won on penalties against Columbia, in the World Cup!)

SETTING

We got married on the 3rd August 2019, after being together 11 years, 11 months and 11 days. Tim choose the date so it would follow a similar theme to the engagement date.

We got married at Sandburn Hall. They are amazing and really went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We choose the venue due to its stunning views, wooden beams and location.

TRAVEL

We both arrives in style ( separately ) in a turquoise camper van called Jeremy ! Jeremy was my something blue. We hired him from Dubtrips

 

PHOTOGRAPHER – Sandburn Hall Wedding Photography

Bethany Lloyd-Clarke was our photographer and we would absolutely recommend her to future brides and grooms. Bethany is a documentary style photographer and captures stunning candid photos, which we loved.

STYLING

With our rustic theme in mind, I made a few things out of pallets and tried to compliment the wooden beams at Sandburn Hall. We love films and TV shows so named our tables after our favourite character couples.

We hired large Mr & Mrs Wilson letters from Marvellous Glow. These looked particularly good on the evening, lighting up our dance floor, and made a great backdrop for our first dance.

FAVOURS

We gave all of our guests miniature bottles of whiskey in memory of Tim’s dad, who died in March. His nickname was Whiskey Wilson from his DJ-ing days. We also had ‘mint to be’ packages of mint imperials that I put together myself.

CAKE

We had a red velvet semi-naked wedding cake made by my Auntie Claire. She practiced and practiced it for months, to the point that my cousins were sick of red velvet cake and she had to feed the practice bakes to the chickens!

ENTERTAINMENT

We had a DJ for the evening from PA Entertainment. They were great and they always knew what songs to play to keep people dancing!

We also hired a photobooth from A&C Photobooth, because it just wouldn’t be a wedding without a photobooth! A copy of each photo was stuck into a guestbook and our guests left us a message next to their photos.

We hired wedding mini golf, which started during the welcome drinks and canapés. It was a great ice-breaker and kept everyone entertained before the wedding breakfast, while we had some photographs taken. Lancashire Crazy Golf is the company and we would definitely recommend them. They added great personal touches to the course!

THANKS TO

I would 100% recommend Sandburn Hall! Not only was the venue perfect inside and out, but our wedding coordinator, Beth Pryal, and the whole team at Sandburn went the extra mile to make sure we had the best day ever.

BEST BIT

Tim says his favourite part of the day was seeing me walk down the aisle. We both loved dancing all night and seeing all the happy people in one room. I wish we could do it again!

ADVICE

My advice would be, when your big day arrives, just enjoy every minute and don’t worry about things that might go wrong. Tell yourself beforehand that it’s likely something will not go to plan so, if and when something happens, you can deal with it. And then focus on all the things that have turned out perfectly!
