Sophie & George’s lovely Lincolnshire brewery wedding, with 166 Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

It’s really important to us at English Wedding that we feature REAL couples, REAL celebrations and achievable, real-life wedding inspiration. We like to balance all the out-there ideas and alternative, opulent inspiration with a reassurance that EVERY wedding is beautiful. Sophie and George chose a very traditional day with classic styling touches, and celebrated with a reception at Batemans Brewery. They chose Lincolnshire wedding photographer Carl at 166 Photography to capture their day, and it’s all kinds of wonderful.

Carl and Lisa were absolutely brilliant. We are so pleased with all of our photos. I can’t recommend them enough.

Your best moment or memory

It’s got to be our first dance- it was just amazing! No one left the dance floor after that.

Venue name + review

All Saints Church, Friskney Reception was Batemans Brewery, Wainfleet All Saints in a marquee. Jacqui and her team made the day run so smoothly from start to finish. The venue is perfect for weddings or for any celebration. The gardens are perfect for wedding photos!

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

Both very traditional. George wore a navy 3 piece suit and I wore a classic A -Line gown with a bit of sparkle of course!

Cake maker name + review

Sharon’s Novelty Cakes, Hogsthorpe, Skegness. We loved our cake! We had a 3 tier cake, all different flavours and a separate fruit cake. It was all delicious.

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

I (Sophie) made all of the invites by hand while I recovered from a broken ankle! We decorated the marquee ourselves.

First dance song? Playlist recommendations?

Hair + makeup name + review

Mavericks Hair Salon, Skegness. The team at Mavericks are always so welcoming. Myself and all of my bridesmaids can agree that they were all very organised while we had our hair done. They did everything we asked for and we couldn’t have been happier.
