Emily and her bridesmaids spent the morning of the wedding day getting ready at her parent’s home, where they had a delicious cooked breakfast, and relaxed in their kimono style robes. Emily gave gifts to each of her bridesmaids before they donned their elegant navy blue dresses. The bride herself wore a stunning lace gown with a matching veil and the most gorgeous sparkly shoes.

Their ceremony at St Silas Church in Blackburn featured live music by a string quartet, which created such a lovely atmosphere. After they were married guests threw hanfdfuls of confetti in the sunshine as they mingled and chatted in the churchyard. Once Emily and Phil had waved their goodbyes from the wedding car, they drove up to their reception venue, Eaves Hall near Clitheroe.

I absolutely love Eaves Hall. It’s such a beautiful, sprawling, country venue with plenty of gardens to explore.. and the most amazing food! The wedding staff always look after me so well when I’m there. 

We had a little time once we arrived to wander in the grounds before all the guests arrived, so we had a few quiet moments to get some natural photos of the couple as they caught up and took it all in. Emily and Phil walked in the gardens and we slowly made our way back to greet their friends and family as they tucked in to canapes and drinks.

Emily had done an amazing job of sourcing, gathering and making the little details for the tables, the room looked stunning in navy blue with such a classic and elegant style. The dark table cloths really complimented the pale pastel flowers and the favours (whiskey miniatures for the gents and a wooden fan for the ladies) were so stylish.

I loved this Eaves Hall wedding and Emily and Phil are such a lovely couple! I can’t wait to be back there again this year for some more splendid sounding weddings!
