Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography

Nicky & Nick’s wedding photos from Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire

Here is an example of my Sandhole Oak Barn wedding photography; Nicky & Nick were married at Sandhole Oak Barn recently. Nicky booked me as their wedding photographer around a year ago, on recommendation from a colleague. Apart from a quick viewing meeting with Nicky way back then, this was a classic meet the ‘couple on the day’ scenario. I duly arrived (early, like I do) at Sandhole to do some exposure and colour balance checks in the barn, and bumped into groom Nick and his entourage decorating the venue in bunting, with lovely little touches of vintage on each table. I also bumped into a smiling and chirpy (but under-pressure) florist – Kate from The Mustard Seed Florist in Macclesfield, who was creating mini-masterpieces for each table. Nicky hadn’t arrived at the cottage as yet, so I captured the groomsmen walking across the field to the Waggon & Horses pub for a quick drink and sandwiches.

We opted to go for a more analogue feel for this vintage wedding. Film emulation with subtle grain gave this wedding collection a unique style, which the clients loved…

Running to my own timetable, it was time to head back to the cottage to catch up with Nicky and the girls, who were in full-flight makeup duties and having some champagne-based fun! After capturing some images of the preparations, I was off to photograph guests arriving, plus have a quick word  with the registrars – who were just brilliant….making our lives as wedding photographers just that little bit better. Thanks ladies!

In keeping with my philosophy, we spent around twenty minutes shooting some fun portraits. The weather wasn’t brilliant so we didn’t venture far. Nicky & Nick just enjoyed being themselves, plus ‘hamming it up’ for camera here and there…as it should be! We grabbed another ten minutes after the hilarious speeches too, for some more images, using some late afternoon sunshine for a change. Yes, the speeches were hilarious; both Nicky & Nick work in the legal profession, so the best men dressed as judges and held court for Nick’s ‘trial’, since Nick was ‘charged’ with a handful of ‘crimes’ from his past…best not mentioned on here though to ‘protect the innocent’ (and me!). The guests were an eighty-strong jury…
