Relaxed Summer Wedding at Sparth House Hotel

A relaxed DIY summer wedding at Sparth House Hotel complete with garden games and bandeoke in the evening. It was just perfect!

Edd & Lucy’s incredible wedding started with the ceremony at St Anne’s Catholic Church in Accrington and then onto the lovely Sparth House hotel for the wedding reception. The church was absolutely lovely! This was my first time photographing a wedding at St Anne’s and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Some churches can be quite dark and dull but lucky for me the large windows meant the lighting inside the church was gorgeous.

I’d started the day at Edd & Lucy’s home in accrington where Lucy and the girls were getting ready. It was a super chilled out morning with no stressing at all. I even got a cup of tea! (Extra brownie points there). the ceremony at the church was at half 12 and I left ahead of Lucy and her bridesmaids to photograph Edd who was looking a little bit nervous waiting at the church.

DIY Holiday & Music Themed Wedding

There was a slight Holiday and Music theme throughout the wedding and also the little teddy moose called Nor (from Norway on Edd & Lucy’s first holiday) sat on the top table. Allot of the wedding was DIY with the cake, bunting, garden games, centre pieces and paper roses all made by family members! The hand ade garden games were incredible!

Sparth House Hotel as a Wedding Venue

Sparth House in Accrington is incredible not only does it have gorgeous gardens for photographs but the combination of the Georgian Manor, wonderful outdoor space and above and beyond service makes this one of my favourite venues to work at. I have photographed a few times now at Sparth House and each time I have been blown away by the incredible hard work by Olivia and all the staff to make sure each wedding runs perfectly. It’s not often I come across a venue that is so dedicated with hard working staff really willing to go the extra mile. 

If you are looking for a wedding venue in the Lancashire area then I’d most certainly recommend having a look at Sparth House Hotel.
