Daniella & Andy
Daniella has to be one of the most cool, laid-back brides I’ve met. She even booked and paid the ‘Pixies’ before meeting us!
Norcliffe Chapel for a very ‘English’ ceremony, a very cute chapel surrounded by fields and woods in the grounds of Styal Estate, following some group photos and lively confetti throwing at the lytch gate we ventured into the woods for a few late afternoon intimate shots utilising some off-camera lighting to create an almost studio effect outdoors… very different indeed :-)
Their reception followed at the Cottons Hotel in Knutsford with an Autumnal theme, the cake was simply stunning with its carefully crafted chocolate acorns and Autumn leaves.
Our next wedding shoot will be in the depths of Winter, complete with snow machine. This has to have been one of our most Summery Autumn seasons ever! :-)
Joanne & Matt
My second pre-wedding meeting with Joanne & Matt was great for learning all about home cinemas! Matt is a huge fan, so politely asking a simple question turned into a full demo… which was very impressive I must say, cheers Matt :-)
Their whole wedding took place at the Alderley Edge Hotel, Joanne looked amazing to the point of making her hair and makeup girls very jealous indeed!
Their ceremony went without a hitch, a highlight had to be their daughter’s poetic reading about her mum and dad, delivered brilliantly to everyone’s enjoyment :-)
Following a fun group photo sesh in the gardens we spent a little time together capturing some intimate shots of Joanne & Matt before they made their entrance to an enthusiastic wedding breakfast gathering.
Kelly & Danny
I love the character of ancient buildings with their earthy textures and rich but intimate light streaming in through small windows. Haslington Hall has all these qualities and more besides, set within lavish gardens complete with two lakes this was always going to be a perfect setting for an early Autumn wedding.
One of the great qualities of a ‘one location’ wedding is the amount of extra time I have for photographing events as they unfold, even the groom’s preparations which is a nice addition.
Kelly & Danny’s ceremony took place in the hall’s intimate west wing together with a string quartet all the way from Scotland. Drinks reception in the garden then onto group photos in front of this magnificent hall. Into the evening we captured some great sunset shots of the couple before their evening guests arrived for a very lively reception party in Haslington Hall’s garden marquee. Perfect summer wedding (in Autumn!).

Katie & Karl
When planning your Autumnal wedding you don’t expect mid-Summer temperatures but this is exactly what Katie, Karl and their guests enjoyed which was far warmer than their pre-wedding shoot all wrapped up in winter woolies!
Their ceremony was held at St Herberts to the sound of an amazing string trio. Then on to Norton Grange for some very summery outdoor photographs complete with buzzing bees and a summer breeze!!
