Ayesha & Phil are possibly the most beautiful couple you will meet, they have A LOT of friends and family so because of this decided to wave goodbye to most of them…..and then ‘BOOKED IT’ ‘PACKED IT’ & well you know the rest!!

They landed in NEW YORK CITY to sit in line
at the City Hall to be wed (in style!)

All very Sex in the City ………Mr Big (aka Phil) didn't let Ayesha down on this front either. They had a ceremony in Central Park, ate pretzels the size of their heads, had photos on Brooklyn Bridge and stayed in some of the city’s swankiest hotels!

Soooooo when they came home and wanted to share some of this LOVE with their closest friends and family, well they had big ‘event’ shoes to fill!

So Ayesha contacted us at LLTW and gave us the brief….

Fun, chic, celebration, modern, unique and a shindig to rival all shindigs…….

So we set to work with some ideas to suit them both and the space they had.

Our NEON love heart; ROXY took pride of place in this booking. The colour pop it added was perfect for the party vibe they both wanted to create. Then the light up letters….well nothing else came close to ‘DRUNK’ in lights!!! This was how Ayesha & Phil wanted everyone to be as they enjoyed the night and a bit of instruction is always handy!!!


With them back on home soil and the wedding do details kept a big secret, the guests gathered as per their invite outdoors in a random spot in town……

….you’re stood there with the growing crowd, you hear a brass band (yes you read that right!) getting closer, then with your mini prosecco bottle & straw in hand, Bride and Groom leading the way, you’re dancing through the streets of Manchester City Centre to the sound of Twist Tubes (an epic band of all proportions)


The WHOLE CITY danced with them as they passed by (a small ode to their New York City wedding itself). Then as they entered their venue space and the band tailed off the lights were there to greet everyone and set the tone for the rest of the evening …. party, drink and enjoy!!!


Congrats Ayesha & Phil; and thank you for letting ‘Love Lights the Way’ light up YOUR big day YOUR way!!!

We love you guys xxxxxxxxxxx

Boho Forest Wonderland - January 2017

Boho Forest Wonderland - January 2017

On a windy and chilly evening I thought this would cheer you up ....we found ourselves deep in the forest that surrounds Heaton House Farm, a venue that holds a very special secret or two .... and we were aloud very special access to one of them...... 

Heaton House Farm has acres of land that most think stops at the back of the very iconic Tree that sits at the foot of the land. Heaton House Farm also has  wonders beyond this.... They have a little pocket of woodland that transports you into a rustic wonderland that LOVE LIGHTS THE WAY had the very lovely honer of transforming into a twinkle wonderland fit for a boho fairy princess !! 

We were part of a super hero roll call of suppliers and if Im honest we all pulled it out of the bag for this beautiful Boho Forest Shoot. We are always harping on about getting quality products and quality suppliers - and we recommend a list of these beauties on 'Our Lovers' page and this shoot really shows you why you should - we shot these pictures on uneven ground, it was pretty dark and a little bit chilly - you wouldn't know any of this unless i just told you ! All thanks to;

Stephen McGowen Photography who took the most exquisite pictures, Edith & Winston (award winning bridal boutique extraordinaire) provided amazing dresses and models; Georgina, Nancy & Nicola, all transformed by Wedlock Hair Specialist and the amazing Kerry Barker on makeup, Shropshire Petals provided the extra sprinkle of Boho sparkle with their biodegradable natural confetti, Knutsford in Bloom totally rocked the forest with her amazing talents and flowers,  and the insanely talented Glorious Tiaras showcases some fabulous head wear, and Bloomsbury wedding cakes brought the naked cake of all naked cakes to compliment the beautiful rustic outdoor feel together .....

Together we delicately transformed a simple raw and beautiful patch of woodland into a total boho wonderland.  This is the result of a top quality list of suppliers - you can totally recreate this shoot for your big day .....

We launched one of our outdoor wonders now ready for hire at this shoot - Our Beautiful;  Wooden Light Arch   along side our ever stunning Festoon String Lights

She is a show stopper as you can see !!! You can have her inside or outside and she creates a simply stunning archway for you to get married under or pose for pictures and frame a truly beautiful back drop. You can dress her in flowers and foliage or have her 'naked' and simply beautiful. The Festoons are assembled starting with a walkway escorting you and your guests up the isle to the stunning presentation of the archway. So you get a walk way of festoons along with the flower arch all in the same hire !! 

Now there is a couple of 'people' / 'furry friends' I have omitted from the list above, as I've never worked with 'animals' before ....BUT Eric was a show stopper - If you've been thinking of having an owl, bear your rings or pose with you for a stunning shot then you have to book Eric - they were amazing, friendly, fluffy and super stars. Thank You to Gauntlet Birds of Prey or bringing them along ! 

Take a look at some of our snaps and let us know what you think - Our Festoons are available to hire as an add on to your current booking or as a new booking if you haven't already got LOVE LIGHTS THE WAY involved in transforming the lighting at your wedding.

BIG LOVE to you all x x x x
