The wedding of Hailey and Liam started back in 2019 when they initially booked me as their wedding photographer for their wedding in 2020, as we all know in early 2020 things took a change and the wedding industry and many other businesses came to a sudden halt.
It was then when Hailey and Liam started to rearrange their wedding plans, I think in total they had arranged four dates before finally getting married in secret on the 10th of September 2021.
We first met up at beacon fell for the pre-wedding shoot In October of 2020 well we discussed the plans and future dates for their wedding none of which could be booked and finalised at this stage due to the current conditions.
But Liam and Haley came up with a plan that surprised everyone, they had arranged to do their legal ceremony in secret with just close family, at the Glendower Hotel in St. Anne’s. so, this was the first wedding a small and personal wedding, one that had to keep secret for the next six months, not telling anyone not wearing a wedding ring and keeping everything a secret even from the bridesmaids.
Moving forward to the 30th of April 2022 the big day had arrived and everyone was looking forward to the wedding ceremony of Liam and Hailey at the Glendower hotel, and no one had a clue what was about to unfold.
During the bridal and groom prep, we had to watch what we were saying in order not to give the game away, pretending that they were still engaged I'm talking about the ceremony and the legal bits as if it was all going to happen.
But no one knew that the ceremony was going to be carried out by Norry Ashcroft otherwise known as Lionel Vinyl here in Blackpool The Official King Of Disco, Entertainment.
As the morning went on, the guests started to arrive and mingle around the bar for drinks before heading into the ceremony room and taking their seats, waiting anxiously for the bride to make her entrance
Soon enough Hailey walked into the ceremony room and up the aisle to meet her “soon to be husband” wink wink, but there were no registrars to carry out the ceremony, so Hailey (The wedding coordinator not the bride) made an announcement to the guests that the registrars were running late.
30 seconds later in comes Lionel Vinyl to the surprise and shock of everyone, from laughter to looks of confusion on the guest's faces Lionel Vinyl walked/danced up the aisle and greeted Liam and Hailey to carry out the wedding ceremony.
What a fantastic wedding I have to say, the day continued as it started full of fun and laughter dancing into the early hours of the morning, certainly a wedding I will not forget in a hurry. I would just like to say a big thank you to Liam & Hailey for hiring me as their wedding photographer it was an honour and pleasure.
