Highlights from Claire & Matt’s brilliant Styal Lodge wedding


“Dear Mick – thank you for our truly stunning wedding photos. We absolutely love them and haven’t stopped looking at them. Loving all the happy memories that have been captured so beautifully. Thank you for making us feel so relaxed throughout our special day, we couldn’t have asked for a better or nicer photographer…”

Love Claire & Matthew



Styal Lodge Summer Wedding

Claire & Matt booked me for their late summer wedding at Styal Lodge. 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 summer 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 as the day was progressing.

Relaxed family wedding

Claire & Matt’s summer wedding was a proper relaxed family event. With Neil at the helm, this Styal Lodge Summer Wedding ran like clockwork. The ushers did a brilliant job gathering the guests for the (quickly shot) 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.

The Lake at Styal Lodge

The Lake at Styal Lodge is the focal point for the couple portraits. A Styal Lodge Summer Wedding is not complete without a short trip on a golf buggy across the 18th green to grab some. Whatever the weather, this shot is a must! The weather was being kind to us, and the visit to the jetty was awesome. Claire and Matt’s wedding photos from their big day were gorgeous. Classic, simple and gorgeous!

Brilliant Wedding speeches

From a lovely time spent outside on the patio, the wedding guests moved indoors to the stunningly laid-out room. Time for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Speeches at a Styal Lodge wedding are always great to photograph. 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 roller coaster of emotions keeping Claire on her toes / chair ;-) Matt & his ‘stunt double’ Best Man were also very funny, making the whole Styal Lodge wedding speeches a great experience for all the guests.

Cheshire Wedding Band

Agent Smith were booked for the evening entertainment at this Styal Lodge Wedding. A brilliant, modern band from seemingly everywhere. 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 bouncing that dance floor area. With the evening buffet beckoning, it was time for me to head home. A brilliant day for a Styal Lodge Wedding…
