Christmas Wedding Bartle Hall | Nicola & Rick

A Christmas Wedding Bartle Hall for the lovely Nicola & Rick. Little did we know, but Nicola & Rick just live up the road from us, small world! We met Nicola & Rick at our home in Bolton, Lancashire to have a good chat about their Christmas wedding that they were planning. Right away we knew this was going to be a brilliant day.

Wedding Photography at Bartle Hall Hotel

Nicola & Rick had chosen Bartle Hall for their wedding venue. Set in the stunning Lancashire countryside, Bartle Hall is a charming country house hotel and coaching barn. It is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and woodlands. Lots of perfect backdrops for wedding photographs. Nicola & Rick had chosen to get married in the Balmoral Suite. A unique barn-style venue with drapes hanging from timber beams. It really does give that rustic feel to a wedding, and thats exactly what Nicola & Rick were looking for. Rick has definitely got a creative eye, as he made every table centre piece along with all the stationary that was dotted around the venue.

A Christmas Wedding At Bartle Hall

Both Nicola and Rick were getting ready at Bartle Hall on the morning of the wedding. Nicola and her bridesmaids were busy getting ready for the big day and Rick and the lads had a more chilled approach. (like every man on planet earth) I think the Woodford Reserve bourbon whisky might of helped a little.

Guests started to arrive and before long the bar was already busy with people. They had a lovely ceremony in the barn, Nicola looked fabulous in her Ava Rose Hamilton dress and Rick looked very dapper in his suit. Huge smiles and cheers from everyone as they walked up the aisle together as new husband and wife.

We made our way to the gardens for a few formal group shots. I stole the newly weds away for 20 minutes to get some lovely natural photographs of them alone together.

Time for the party

The drinks were topped up for some absolutely amazing speeches. Especially from the best man who had a very special surprise for Nicola & Rick, well, I’ll let the photograph explain all. Damian Kelly was the wedding host and Dj for the wedding and he had everybody getting involved. I have worked with Damian many times and I know it’s always going to be filled with amazing energy when he is about.

More drinks around the bar and everyone was now in a full festive party spirit. Nicola danced with her Dad first and then it was time for the first dance, before everyone joined them on the dance floor to party the night away.

A wonderful Christmas wedding for an amazing couple.

“Love the photos! you have done such an amazing job!!”
