It was back to the ever popular Heaton House Farm for this November wedding we covered. Ashleigh & Adam were such a warm and generous couple and it was an honour to cover their wedding photography & film on the day. The happy couple were kind enough to share some advice and tips on their wedding plans and services they booked for their wedding and why.
Ashleigh's hair was done by Charlotte at Hair Fantasy. She found her on Instagram after being let down previously by 2 other hairdressers. "From the moment i met Charlotte, she put my mind at ease. She is so professional and absolutely amazing at what she does. Our hair trials went smoothly and she had a consultation with all of us to ensure our hair was exactly what we wanted. Charlotte went above and beyond on the day of our wedding, ensuring every piece of hair was in place right up until we were ready to walk down the aisle. Our hairstyles stayed perfect all day and i can't recommend her enough".
Ashleigh purchased her wedding dress from Boutique Brides of Crosby. She said "The amazing ladies at Boutique Brides of Crosby made me feel so welcome and at ease from the moment i stepped through the door. I was so anxious to try on a wedding dress as i had no clue what i wanted or what style would suit me. The ladies picked lots of different styles and the second dress they tried on me i instantly fell in love. I knew it was the one and the detail in the dress was absolutely stunning! My seamstress Fran ensured my wedding dress fitted to perfection. I really can't praise them all enough and any Bride really does need to pay them a visit, you won't be disappointed".
Adam hired his and Ushers suits from Groom based in The Wedding House. "They were exceptional in every way" he said. "They couldn't help me and my Grooms party enough. Nothing was to much too ask of them. I would recommend any Groom to take a look"
The couples wedding rings were purchased from Goldsmiths.
"Our wedding favours we made them ourselves. We done Sambuka shots, pink for women and white for the men. We done sweets for people that don't drink"
Flowers and venue dressing were done by the hugely popular and supremely talented folk at Qube Events. "They weren't the cheapest option but they were by far the best" the couple told us. "They showed professionalism to the highest of standards. They provided us with mock ups of bouquets, top tables, centre pieces, venue dressings, everything you could think of to give us a great insight. Picking options from pictures and ideas off the top of your head can be very hard to visualise. Qube turned our ideas into a reality. By seeing our mock ups we made other changes to the likes of the table set up and this was no problem for them. They went above and beyond every aspect and made our day as perfect as it was.
Ashleigh & Adam purchased their wedding cake from For Goodness Cake and they had some kind words for Sue who created their cake. "Sue really made our dream cake a reality. We chose our Disney themed cake as we got engaged in Disneyland Paris in 2015"
Adam flew out to surprise Ashleigh whilst she was on a family holiday and he proposed in front of the Disney Castle so they incorporated this into their big day. "Sue took into account every detail, from the castle to the glass slipper and the snowflake broche which matched our invites. The cake had 3 different flavours - Cherry Bakeswell, Chocolate Orange and Carrot Cake. It really did taste as good as it looked and we can't thank her enough for our amazing cake".
"For our evening entertainment we hired Six15 Events which included DJ and Saxophonist and they were absolutely outstanding. Will Maden our DJ and The Sax Guy took our wedding to another level. We would recommend them to everybody. We also hired a Selfie Mirror from Keyhole Studios. This is so unique and stands out from the crowd. Everyone commented on how brilliant this was".
We asked them both how they came to choose the venue for their wedding day and once again, the staff were mentioned as being absolutely fantastic to deal with. "We decided on Heaton House Farm as our wedding venue because from the first time we visited the venue, it took our breath away with its stunning setting and bespoke features. We had visited a lot of other venues previous to this closer to our doorstep but Heaton House Farm captured our hearts"
"The staff went above and beyond with every request and we didn't have to worry about anything. Our wedding planner Nicola is an absolute credit to the venue and she ensured our day ran as smoothly as it did. We couldn't thank her enough for all of her hard work".
Here's some final words and advice from Ashleigh & Adam and some kind words about us as well and the services we provided on the day.
"We know how stressful it is to plan a wedding but on your big day everything really does all fall into place. We think it's important that you build a good relationship with all your suppliers. You build trust in them and it helps to settle your nerves on your big day"
"Our photography and Videography team were truly outstanding and we can honestly say worth every single penny. The photos and video will be treasured forever. They captured all OF our special moments. Keyhole Studios are so professional and made our day run so smoothly. We can't thank them enough for all of their hard work".
