Gemma and Will’s farmhouse marquee wedding Lancashire was the perfect celebration of love, friendship and family tradition! A wedding ceremony at Rainford Church followed by an epic party which took place at the families farmhouse near Ormskirk, Lancashire…
FARMHOUSE MARQUEE WEDDING LANCASHIRE
Wedding Day’s don’t come more personal than this. Gemma and Will had a farmhouse marquee wedding Lancashire at their home near Ormskirk. The couple were due to get married the year before but the wedding was surprisingly put on hold until the arrival of their baby twin boy’s.
The couples private farmhouse marquee wedding preparations began at the couples family home with Gemma wearing a beautiful Morilee Madeline Gardner wedding gown and Lipsy shoes. Her outfit was complemented with a colourful bouquet of yellow, white and orange roses.
A huge advantage on the day was that everyone was ready in plenty of time, this meant that all the girls were ready in their blush pink dresses as Gemma made her way downstairs for a heartwarming bridal reveal.
WEDDING CEREMONY RAINFORD CHURCH
The wedding ceremony took place at Rainford church, Lancashire, a church steeped in family heritage for the couple but posed a few unique problems for myself.
On arrival, I was told “No Photos” in church during the ceremony! I was a little disappointed, not for me but for the couple, however, if we were are never challenged we would never grow! So without anyone knowing, I took a few sneaky pics during key moments.
Continuing with the personal theme, the couple chose to get married at All Saints Church in Rainford, a church that has seen all of Gemma’s immediate family being married there before her.
After the ceremony, we recreated a very special bride and groom portrait. Gemma and Will stood newly married as Man and Wife at the Rainford church Lych Gate. Standing in the exact same spot as where past family members had stood when having their photograph taken there on their wedding day.
FARMHOUSE MARQUEE WEDDING RECEPTION
Arriving at Gemma and Will’s farmhouse marquee wedding reception, guests were treated to drinks and canapé’s inside an impressive marquee on the grounds of their home.
This was a perfect time for me to take some relaxed documentary wedding style images of the guests together with some simple portraits of the bride and groom.
For the wedding breakfast, guests were seated in the luxury marquee with each guest receiving coloured novelty sunglasses as a wedding favour. There were 3 main speeches, which took place before the meal, all of which received fantastic reactions.
The luxury marquee had a separate room, which later revealed the hidden dance floor. The night-time party kicked off with a spectacular firework display before everyone hit the dance floor to stomping tunes provided by a night club DJ.

Just before the couple were called in for the wedding breakfast we left the marquee and went for a little wonder around the grounds of their home. This provided Gemma and Will with the opportunity to have some time to themselves and the chance for me to capture a few simple bride and groom portraits.
The timing was perfect, the sun was slowly setting over the Lancashire countryside with views of nearby Rainford and Ormskirk in the distance. It was a real treat to incorporate personal aspects of the couple’s home in the portraits.
