Tom & Ben’s same sex wedding at Healey Barn

Tom & Ben’s same sex wedding at Healey Barn

I’ve shot a few times now at this venue, but this was my first same sex wedding at Healey Barn and what a day it was!!!  Weddings are all about the people, the emotion and the love of the day, and by god this one was so SO good!  I’d met Tom and Ben when photographing their friend’s wedding (hi Steph & Adam if you’re reading this!!!), and was over the moon when they asked me to shoot their own big day.  I knew it’d be good, but I didn’t quite realise just how awesome it was going to be…

What was your favourite part of the wedding?

The best part for us both….. I have to say it was being the first ever couple to spend the weekend at Healey Hall. Having all of close family and friends all under one roof was fantastic. Of course we were privileged to have Andy on site also so the memories can live on!

Please let me know about any personal or DIY touches you added to make the day a little more ‘you’.

We both envisaged our wedding being a day of great company, amazing food and plenty of sore heads the next day!  Having gotten engaged in the Lake District, I wanted to bring our special place to the wedding. So every table was named after a place of significance in the north west.

Why did you choose your venue?

Our venue of Healey Barn was so suited for us, we both love the countryside so the location was spot on. As for the barn itself the wow factor is there from the moment you walk in no matter how many props and flowers you use to decorate this already stunning building.

How did you find using Andy Hudson Photography?

We had met Andy previously at a family wedding. We noticed Andy’s approach was not intrusive or demanding of the couple’s day. When we met Andy previously we knew this was what we wanted for our own day. Seeing Andy’s photos was a deal breaker for us. The quality, emotion and just the whole atmosphere of our day was captured in every photo taken

If you were doing it all again what would be the one bit of advice you’d give yourself?

Make sure you have a rough idea of what you want because your ideas and budget can easily run away with your every expanding inspiration. However, on reflection we would never change anything… except for time to slow down.
