Perfect day - real wedding in Lancashire

Steven Geddes and Lisa Wright

Where: Ceremony and reception at Stanley House, Mellor

Photography: Ashton Photography

Our wedding day was the most perfect day of my life.

I was so calm in the morning my best friend Nikki Shaw kept saying “you do know you’re getting married don’t you?” My mum gave me a lovely card and present – a Pandora bracelet with a purple charm to match the theme. Nikki then gave me a present that Steven had sent for me – a pair of beautiful diamond stud earrings and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers.

Everyone was getting ready and I started to see people arriving. I saw Steven through the window and my nerves kicked in instantly. We had planned for me to be in my dress by 12pm but when I looked at my watch it was 12.25 – all stations go! Dad arrived to get me and I could feel the emotion. I stood outside the ceremony room and my stomach was in my mouth. The entry music, At Last by Etta James started and I heard everyone giggle. I didn’t notice anyone in the room as I walked down the aisle just that I was knocking every lantern over on the way down and was hoping they wouldn’t set the aisle on fire. I was so nervous I couldn’t look Steven in the eye for too long as I knew if I did I would not be able to stop the tears from streaming down my face. Our son, Ryan, the ring bearer, was also crying by this point too. The wedding meant so much to both my children, Ryan and Mia, as they had followed me through the two years helping me make choices about different things. From the day we set a date to get married both the children always used the term ‘we are getting married’ not mum and dad and I loved that we were getting married as a family, which is why I wanted the children to have rings also during the ceremony to make it just as special to them as it was to Steven and I.

It was a perfect day the sun was shining but it wasn’t too warm – everyone was having a great time. The meal surprised everyone it wasn’t a roast dinner that people would expect, but southern fried chicken, fries, corn on the cob and coleslaw – a meal to suit all, although my dad didn’t eat a thing as he was so nervous about his speech. The speeches were great, my dad’s was fantastic, Steven’s was lovely and emotional and Chris Morley’s (the best man) was hilarious.

After more pictures the night do arrived with more guests – it was time to party the night away which we all did. The day went far too fast but enjoyed every single second.
