A STUNNING FARM WEDDING IN LANCASHIRE
WELLBEING FARM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Zoe and Dale wanted their wedding to be focused around the things they loved the most - family and food. They wanted a wedding that would be as fun for the children as the adults, and where everyone would be spoilt and really be able to join in the celebrations. They originally looked at other more formal venues, but then found the Wellbeing Farm and knew this would be the venue for them. The Wellbeing Farm is set in the most beautiful countryside ever. It has a large, rustic barn for the ceremony and meal, and then plenty of outbuildings and outside space too.
Zoe got ready nearby whilst Dale chose to get ready at home. As the guests arrived they loved seeing the Llamas and Donkeys in their bowties and flat caps. The barn looked stunning with a white curtain backdrop, flower arch and haybales. After the beautiful ceremony, Zoe and Dale were showered with confetti before being able to relax with their guests. There were lots of snacks and drinks available for everyone (this really was a foodie wedding!). The llamas were brought out to see Zoe, Dale and their guests. There was a bouncy castle and other outdoor games to enjoy.
The afternoon and evening were very chilled and relaxed - just how Zoe and Dale wanted it to be. Other than stopping for a couple of group photos and a couple of portraits, the couple were able to just soak up their day. The dancing in the evening was fantastic, with many a 90's classic getting lots of guests onto the dancefloor.
Here's what Lizzie and Steve had to say about them and their plans:
How did you meet?
We met in August 2010 just before Dale was about to set off travelling for 5 months! Not the best thing for a blossoming relationship! Luckily, I charmed my way into Dale’s plans and in January 2011 we went for a 3-week adventure in the USA before Dale went off to South Africa. Our American adventure was the start of our love of adventure, food and travel.
What are your favourite things to do?
At home, we love to try out new restaurants and often debate what our best meal has been and the top ten restaurants we’ve been to. Food is a key part of our relationship - Zoe likes cooking and baking while Dale likes eating and finding new and exciting places for us to go! We love to travel and have been on some amazing holidays together, Italy and Germany have been 2 of our favourite countries to go to, driven by the food! We also like to watch quiz shows – Only Connect, Mastermind, University challenge, as well as gardening programmes, nature documentaries.
What is the vision for your wedding day?
We want to have fun and share our magical day with our friends and family by. It's going to be relaxed and informal with a party-style atmosphere. We want to do what is important to us rather than what is expected and make it really natural, not staged.
