It was a privilege to be part of Yvonne and Mike’s Formby Hall Wedding, as the love and affection that they felt for each other was clear for all to see. I spent the morning with Yvonne and the bridesmaids whilst they were getting ready for the ceremony. There was lots of fun moments which lead up to the time when Yvonne started to get nervous 😊
Whilst I was with the girls, my second photographer Jenna was photographing the guests arriving and the build up to the wedding ceremony. By this stage Mike was looking a little nervous too, but also managed to have some good laughs with his best man.
Formby Hall Golf Club and Spa is in Formby, Merseyside. As a wedding venue, it offers plenty of indoor and outdoor space for you and your wedding guests to relax and enjoy the day. There are plenty of large bedrooms that provide a good amount of space for you to comfortably get ready with your bridal party; there is also a good chance that you will look out over the beautiful green golf course. At Formby Hall, there are multiple function rooms and configurations that can be created to suit the size of your wedding, but also move guests around whilst a room is being transformed from the ceremony to wedding breakfast layout. As Formby Hall is also a hotel your guests can choose to stay at the venue which can prove very useful if someone wants to freshen up, and also not worry about driving home afterwards.
When Mike first saw Yvonne he was very keen to hug and kiss her there and then! The ceremony was beautiful with Yvonne holding back the tears, a love filled first kiss, and a couple of great readings from their friends.
With a mainly rainy day expected, the sunshine made a great appearance which encouraged the wedding guests outside to enjoy the fresh air and warmth of the sun.
Speeches vary a lot at weddings, and I can honestly say that we loved the character, style, and personality that bursted out of the Groom and Best Man; definitely my favourite speeches so far this year!
Later that evening the first dance was unique with the guests voting for the most popular song for Yvonne and Mike to dance too.
Thank you to Yvonne and Mike for selecting me as their photographer for their Formby Hall Wedding.
