Vicki & Alastair - A Rivington Barn Wedding

A Rivington Barn Wedding

Well it’s been a year since we visited Rivington Barn near Bolton and I have to say it’s one of those places I love. Not only is it beautiful but its very well run. All the staff are super helpful, I love the open gardens and adjacent woodlands and its just a great place for a vintage style wedding. On this occasion the decor at this Rivington barn wedding looked amazing. Very low light and a little ‘woodland wonderland’. I was so impressed with how Vicki & Alastair had themed their day. They had thought of everything and had some lovely touches like the table plan and centre pieces.

Excitement and anticipation

This Rivington Barn wedding was full of anticipation and lots of giggle and excitement as Vicki and her bridesmaids got ready. Its interesting when I film the getting ready I can always tell how the day is going to go. The family had lots of gifts for Vicki to open (it was also her birthday on this day). Everyone gathered around as she opened each one. Naturally when she got to Alistair’s gift there were a few tears. He wrote a lovely message for her and it moved all who were there to tears.

The Church

We had been asked before hand to be inconspicuous in our presence during the ceremony. We don’t usually move around during ceremony coverage but we had planned our position before we arrived and so managed to capture some beautiful reactions. The church is quite special and the lighting coming in through the stain glass window looked amazing. The service was quite emotional and Vicki’s friends had come over from the USA. She did a really cool reading which was quite poignant.

The History

Just last September we filmed Vicki’s bridesmaids wedding (see Angela & Bradley) and following this they booked us to cover their day. I absolutely love it when we get the chance to film like this. We were particularly excited about filming their day, knowing what a lovely couple they were. At this Rivington barn wedding there was so much going on.There was a great performance from the singing waiters and a fantastic lively band in the evening, I could have quite easily made a looooong highlight, but wanted to save some for the feature 🙂 Enjoy.
