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!

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…

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!

Angela and Lee were married at Shrigley Hall just before Christmas. I love winter weddings, and especially theirs – with my first visit to this lovely Cheshire wedding venue. So here is my Shrigley Hall Wedding Photography…

Back at the family home, Angela and the girls were getting ready, all giddy and excited for what the day would bring…

…and as a surprise, I’d arranged with BBC Radio Manchester for them to call Lee – live on air at a pub in Bramhall. Luckily for everyone listening, the lads behaved themselves; Lee was blown away with BBC Radio Manchester gate crashing the groomsmen’s breakfast, whilst we all listened in at home…phew…all going to plan!

The day was proving to be a very emotional. Without going into detail, the family were very much united in having a great day, whatever the weather, whatever the timeline.

I know the groom, Lee – and his dad Steve through my job. Both are chauffeurs for Horgan’s Cars – one of the very best around for wedding transport. The groomsmen arrived at Shrigley, complete with suit and overnight bags, like Keystone Cops, tumbling out of the Horgan’s minibus, and bustling into the Hall. I had to be careful photographing the bus, since there were a few ‘goodwill’ messages for Lee – written on the steamed-up windows. The images haven’t made the blog though! 😉

With the ceremony time rapidly approaching, it was time for the customary button hole fastenings…and the chaos and laughter such a simple task can bring when under pressure to get inside and seated, ready for the bride.

Perfectly to time, Angela and the bridesmaids arrived in car number two. Time for a few quick photos with dad, then we were off…

By now the weather wasn’t good, so our drive off into the countryside for some bride and groom formal images had to be cut short. Miraculously though, the rain stopped and the sun appeared, as if a switch had been pressed. Spooky!

With their wedding being so close to Christmas, we had to grab a few formals near the tree, and on the stairs….be rude not to.

With a unique half Batman / Gotham, half ‘traditional’ wedding cake, we had a few shots taken with it, in the William Turner Suite. Soon the guests made their way through, and it was time to kiss ‘a thousand cheeks’, before taking their places for the speeches.

Again, without being obvious, I have to say that the speeches were the most emotional and heartfelt I have ever witnessed at a wedding. Our job as wedding photographers is to be neutral, detached and concentrate on our job. Not so easy when a set of speeches, so beautifully and naturally delivered were there. Even Angela & Lee’s son, stood on a chair to speak….totally flooring everybody. Me included…

From the wedding breakfast it was time to party. With the DJ in full swing, the first dance fired the party off to a great start, followed by Lee and three year old daughter singing Karaoke together…(did I mention emotional)?

On cue, I left the party in full swing, and headed off home. Thanks again guys for a truly emotional roller coaster ride of a wedding day- one I’ll never forget.
