The Boatyard in Leigh makes for a striking reception venue and from our point of view, some great photographs in and around the local area. We asked Liz & James to tell us a little more about their wedding and venue choice.
Where did your wedding take place and what made the venue special?
Our wedding was at the Boatyard Restaurant in Leigh. The location was perfect and the Boatyard had everything we wanted in a venue.
Did you have a theme for your wedding? What was your colour scheme?
As we live by the sea, and our venue was on the beach, our theme was beach related with ‘ice cream’ colours like pinks and creams as our colour scheme.
Tell us about the process of choosing your dress? Was it the first one you tried on or did you change your mind numerous times?
The boy’s suits were all from All Saints
Can you tell me about your flowers?
Our flowers were from Scent Florist in Leigh and Steven did an amazing job. The colours and flowers went perfectly with our wedding theme
What are your wedding rings like? Did you have any other special jewellery?
I saw a design I liked online and got it specially made by a local jeweller. James knew he wanted a thin plain band and we ended up with perfect rings that we both love.
What was your most useful source of wedding ideas and information?
I used Pinterest a lot as it has lots of different ideas and information that can easily be incorporated into your own wedding
Tell us about a supplier who provided a first-class service.
Everyone provided us with an excellent service. We would recommend everyone that we used as they all contributed to making our day so perfect
Do you have any advice for future brides?
Do not stress! Everything will eventually happen to create the day you dreamed of.
What was your favourite photograph and why did you like it?
My favourite photograph is the confetti shot on the decking at the Boatyard. It pictures the whole bridal party and captures the feel of the day perfectly.
Was Studio Rochford the right photographer for you?
Most definitely. Jo and Denise are helpful, friendly, take excellent photos and we are extremely pleased with all of our photos.
