Colshaw Hall Wedding

Highlights from Linda & Mark’s Colshaw Hall Wedding in the summer

 

Colshaw Hall Wedding

Linda & Mark booked me about a year ago for their Colshaw Hall Wedding. I remember meeting them for the first time and was convinced I’d known them for years, we all hit it off so well. Fast forward to a warm but overcast August day, and their Colshaw Hall Wedding was on! This was not my first time as a Colshaw Hall Wedding Photographer. I’d been here a year previous with Becci & Aaron. The weather was identical too! 😉 Here are some of the images from Linda & Mark’s brilliant wedding…

Cheshire Wedding MUA

Linda was in good hands, as the image below shows.  Danielle Horan was on hair and makeup duties, and it was great working with her.  I say work…the morning was so relaxed, I think even Linda had a pulse of around four for her Colshaw Hall Wedding! Wish all wedding mornings were this chilled. 🙂

Wedding Entertainment

The day was filled with games and entertainment – notably two in particular. Magic Matt was wowing the guests (and me!) with his close up magic. He even managed to steal two gentleman’s ties from them and put them on…and I never spotted it either. And I stood next to him. Awesome magician and pickpocket – check him out.

On music was the incredibly relaxed and talented Dominic Halpin and The Honey B’s. Playing the afternoon as a trio, his band morphed into a full swing five-piece for the evening party. These guys just make it look soooo easy!

The Oak Tree of Peover Wedding Venue

Nestled in the depths of the Cheshire countryside, just outside Knutsford, this brilliant wedding venue has a charm of it’s own. Formerly Peover Golf Club, the new look  and layout make the venue perfect for your Oak Tree Of Peover Wedding. The Oak Tree of Peover is proving to be a very popular wedding venue indeed, and my second time photographing weddings there…ironically exactly a year apart to the day….spooky! Nicola booked me for her wedding to James over a year ago. Our meeting point was a salubrious McDonald’s in north Lancashire, but my folio was just what the couple were looking for. So here we are, a year or so down the line, on a hot September day. Enjoy the highlights from Nicola & James’ wedding collection…

Unique exclusive wedding venue

The Oak Tree of Peover is a medium-sized wedding venue, and fully exclusive to each and every wedding. The bridal preparations were upstairs in the room above the lounge – so no transport and road works problems! Nicola was in great spirits, getting ready with her mum and sister, all expertly made up by Jaz. On cue, dad came to see his daughter before he gave her away…

Oak Tree of Peover Wedding Photos

An Oak Tree of Peover Wedding offers the photographer and the happy couple plenty of options for stunning couple photos. I love lots of natural sunlight and lens flare in my images and an Oak Tree of Peover Wedding in the sunshine produces plenty! We photographed some more sunset images too after the speeches, and just before the first dance…

Styal Lodge Wedding Venue

Claire & Matt booked me for their late summer Styal Lodge Wedding around a year ago. I love a good Styal Lodge wedding, and curiously this was my only visit for 2017 (I’d spent most of 2017 in Lancashire). But great to be back, and especially catching up with Sarah & Neil from Pink Pepper Catering – awesome wedding and events caterers. I seem to remember I photographed the first Styal Lodge wedding when the venue first opened. The weather was quite the opposite…heavy rain and blustery winds all day! But Claire & Matt’s special day was going to be brilliant – literally; the sun was out and looked like it was going to stay.

Exclusive use wedding venue

A Styal Lodge wedding comes as an exclusive use venue, and everything just works, brilliantly. Even Matt & the groomsmen getting ready in the Clubhouse changing rooms next door, a Styal Lodge wedding has a very ‘hand-made’ feel to it – high quality with little fuss. As the lads were getting ready, so was Claire and the girls, so I got to jump between both rooms to capture the action.

Relaxed family wedding

Claire & Matt’s wedding was a proper relaxed family wedding. With Neil at the helm, the day ran like clockwork; the ushers did a brilliant job organising the guests for the family group photos, and everybody got chance to grab an ice cream from the lovely Adele and her stunning vintage ice cream van from Dotty About Ice Cream

Brilliant Wedding speeches

From a lovely time spent outside on the patio, we now moved indoors to the stunningly laid-out room. Time for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Speeches at a Styal Lodge wedding are always entertaining; heartfelt, poignant maybe, but always brilliant to listen to (yes, I know I should be concentrating on the job!) Claire’s father’s speech was brilliant – a proper rollercoaster of emotions keeping Claire on her toes / chair 😉 Matt & his ‘stunt double’ Best Man were also very funny too, making the while Styal Lodge wedding a proper experience for all the guests.

Cheshire Wedding Band

Agent Smith were booked for the evening entratainment. A brilliant, modern band from seemingly everywhwre…I have worked with them a few times and they are always fantastic to dance to…erm, the guests not me! 😉 They got the party started with ease, and soon everyone was up ‘Swinging their pants to some modern toonz…’ With the evening buffet beckoning, it was time for me to head home. A brilliant day for Styal Lodge Wedding…

Some of my favourite images from 2017 as a Manchester Wedding Photographer

2017 in Pictures

2017 has been a brilliant year for me. I have photographed fifty weddings, all around the North West, with a slight detour in June, to Limerick in Ireland too. I have met and worked with some wonderful people, as well as some of my favourite venues, such as Eaves Hall, Mitton Hall, On The 7th, Styal Lodge, Sandhole Oak Barn, Bartle Hall and Beeston Manor to name but a few.

Top Wedding Venues

I have also had the opportunity to not only be a Manchester Wedding Photographer, but a Lancashire Wedding Photographer, Liverpool Wedding Photographer, a Tipi Wedding Photographer and Cheshire Wedding Photographer too. Some new venues to me include the fabulous West Tower, King Street Townhouse and Rivington Hall Barn, and I look forward to working there again in 2018.

Choosing my favourite images from the 50 weddings I photographed in 2017 has proved to be a very difficult task. I gave up in the end! But these images are just some of my favourites from the year – and I have to thank each and every client I have had in front of the Nikons for being brilliant and allowing me to photograph their special day in my natural style. Thank you guys! (Wow, this is almost turning into an acceptance speech… 😉 )

I hope you like them. If you do…why not get in touch to discuss your wedding day. The 2018 Diary is filling up quickly now, and I wouldn’t want to disappoint anybody by being unavailable…

Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photography – Bhavini & Adam

” Mick you have done an incredible job capturing these special moments that we can look back on for the rest of our lives! Thank you!!”

Bhavini & Adam booked me to be their Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photographer around a year ago. This stunning venue, based near Delamere Forest is a dream venue to work at; stunning landscaped gardens, forest, plus open fields, a beautiful Glass House / Conservatory for the wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast. But in Bhavini and Adam’s case – just the wedding breakfast, since their wedding ceremony was to be outdoors. Here are a few from their extensive wedding collection…

With me for the day, on video duties was Stefan and his assistant from Your Special Day. Stefan brought one of his drones to film sequences for the wedding video. Now, I’m not normally a fan of drones, since a lot are ‘flown’ by amateurs without the proper training and CAA licence. But Stefan shoots a lot for the BBC, and since Abbeywood is technically, err…massive, there would be no problem with minimum height / distance restrictions. In fact, we worked together so well, that we both captured the day simultaneously with the minimum of fuss. I even left Stefan in some of the images deliberately!

With the guests gathering, and the sun getting hotter, we were a few minutes away from the ceremony. A glorious day for an outdoor wedding. Normally I would have the 70-200mm with me, but was saving it for later, sticking to my usual 24-70mm and 85mm combination for the next couple of hours…I really didn’t need a heavy bag!

As Bhavini and here father made their way through the walled garden (hello Stefan!), we had plenty of opportunity to get some great angles. Adam, quietly, and slightly nervously waited on the lawn…

Part-way through the open air ceremony, we moved around to the relative shelter of the gazebo – for the legal declarations and signing of the register…

And a special mention at this point that Bhavini made both hers and the bridesmaids dresses too…now taking orders I’m told…

abbeywood-estate-wedding-photography-11

By now the sun was high and the temperature soaring. Photography shouldn’t be undertaken in extreme lighting conditions such as this? Yep, but we love breaking the rules and having a little fun for ten minutes… 😉

During the drinkas and canapes, the entertainment was provided by magician Nick Rushton, who did a brilliant bending spoon routine, which had us all fooled…even the Nikons!

This was my first visit to an Abbeywood Estate wedding, and I have to say, thoroughly enjoyed the day so far – full on busy, but everything seemed so well-paced as to not feel too much like work – even in the heat!

With a slightly more traditional confetti line-up, it was time for the guests to be seated in the glasshouse. Bhavini & Adam entered to thunderous applause…

While the room was being refreshed for the evening party, it was time for a few more Bride & Groom portraits…again with ‘The Professor’ Stefan and a combination of the drone and Steadicam….again, we worked seamlessly together – as it should be! The images speak for themselves with little to no direction from us….

..and then it was party time. One bouquet toss later, we were off to cut the cake and start the first dance…and still exactly to schedule….fantastic planning by all concerned!

And that was it – nine hours’ shooting which never felt like work at any stage of the day. I left the dance floor in full swing, with tunes spun in by Cheshire Wedding DJs – and sparing the ‘Dad-Dancers’ blushes…

Shrigley Hall in Cheshire

Katie & Daniel were married in the summer at Shrigley Hall, in Cheshire. We’d all met almost a year previously at Dukes ’92 over a couple of large coffees, to discuss options for me being their Shrigley Hall Wedding Photographer. They liked my natural documentary style – relaxed and unobtrusive, and wanted this approach for their big day…plus a handful of family group photos to keep the mums happy!

Exclusive Cheshire Wedding

While the girls were getting ready in the main suite above the front of the entrance, the lads were getting ready a few corridors away. My scheduled allowed me to capture both sets of preparations seamlessly, keeping the story ‘unfolding’ in photographic terms. Daniel was his usual quiet self – not nervous at all in fact, but really looking forward to meeting his bride….after a quick ‘diet coke’ in the bar with friends and family of course… 😉

As the guests were greeted and gathered in the ceremony room, Katie and her dad made their way down stairs to meet the registrars and do the interview. The string trio fired up and the atmosphere rose to a quiet murmour as Katie awas about to walk in, with her proud dad. I noticed a little twinge of nerves as a now-pensive daniel waited patiently for the bridesmaids to take their places and Katie to appear next to him. As their Shrigley Hall Wedding Photographer, I took up my position, having had a chat with the registrars – “Do whatever you need to do Mick, it’s no problem!” Thanks guys…

Cheshire wedding reception

After the ceremony, we all gathered in the lounge area for drinks and canapes. After ‘kissing a thousand cheeks’, we were outside for a few family group photos. Once these were in the can, Katie, Daniel and myself spent fifteen minutes or so taking some both very natural, and slightly formal images, both outside Shrigley Hall and inside on the staircase.

Shrigley Hall Wedding Reception

As the afternoon turned to evening, the wedding breakfast was completed and the speeches were in full swing. Being a Shrigley Hall Wedding Photographer on this day, I quietly captured the speeches, and some of the lovely reactions of friends and family. The room looked stunning; beautifully lit (but still dark! lol) and oozing atmosphere. Adam Carr DJ was on ‘spinning duties’ later in the evening. It was my first time working with him, and a lovely chap he is too! And…the guy can fill a dancefloor…and keep it full. Highly recommended!
