Lily and Oliver’s Colshaw Hall wedding is simply stunning. They created such an elegant summer wedding, making the most of stunning summer blooms for the bridal bouquets and floral arrangements, and the natural summer light that lit up their beautiful venue.
We love Lily’s dress with its delicate lace back, and wait until you see Oliver and the groomsmen’s cool suits.
If you are looking for inspiration for your evening reception then you will love their wedding party! A photo booth, casino tables and a sparkling dance floor; what more could you want?
We hope you love these pictures by Jess Yarwood Photography as much as we do…
“We met at school in 1995 where we became best friends. I then went to university and travelled around Europe working for Thomas Cook. Oliver went to America to undertake a football scholarship and then went on to travel around Australia.
“However, we remained close friends and would often meet to catch up. Then in 2014 Oliver moved in with me as my house mate following a break up. It was from here that we realised that we were more than just friends, and began dating in June 2014. Oliver proposed in Las Vegas in September 2015.
Stella York and Jimmy Choo
“I wore a Stella York lace back dress from Bridal Haven in Tarporley. It was one of the first styles that I saw, and although I did try on different styles this was the dress I went back to. I wore sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes and I had a hair vine in my hair. I also wore a Tiffany pearl bracelet and my great auntie’s freshwater pearls.
The Stables, Colshaw Hall Wedding Ceremony
“We had a civil ceremony in The Stables at Colshaw Hall and then the reception was in the Peel Suite. We fell in love with the beautiful venue because it was simplistic and set in a beautiful rural location in Lower Peover, Cheshire.
Jess Yarwood’s Natural Style
“Jess Yarwood was our photographer. She had been a friend since school so it was important to us that she was part of our Colshaw Hall wedding. Her style is so natural and she becomes a big part of the day. We loved that Jess took us into the garden area of the venue and also took pictures on the bridge. She was perfect and made us feel so at ease.
Rose Gold, Glitter and Casino Tables
“Oliver proposed with an unusual ring. It included a stone called morganite which is rose gold in colour, so we based our wedding theme around this.
“Our flowers consisted of amnesia and white roses. Flowers lined the aisle and stood within candelabras on top of clear pillars with candles. Decorations included fans in the ceremony, glitter vodka shots and illuminated LOVE letters on the dance floor. We also had a photo booth for the evening and casino tables. Amy at Gorgeous Invites designed an engraved mirror which was the table plan, and we were able to keep this too.
Cupcakes for Everyone
“Our wedding cake was a selection of cupcakes with a top tier made out of sponge to cut. We had six different flavours to suit everyone’s taste. They were Victoria sponge, apple pie, chocolate, salted caramel, vanilla and lemon.
“The day was perfect. When we were planning were quite good at making decisions based on our gut reaction, so make sure if you like something you go for it!”
