Styal Lodge Wedding Photography

Lorna & Hamid’s half Persian wedding photos from Styal Lodge

Here is another example of my Styal Lodge Wedding Photography; Lorna & Hamid were married recently at St Peter’s Church in Prestbury, with a Persian ceremony and traditional wedding breakfast at Styal Lodge. Lorna and her bridesmaids were having their preparations at Kingsley Lodge – a stunning, exclusive boutique hotel in Wilmslow – about ten minute’s drive from Styal.

I was commissioned because of my natural unassuming approach to wedding photography, classically unobtrusive and letting the day flow with little to no influence from me. Hamid is a keen photographer too, and ‘knew what he was looking for’ (his words, not mine). Glad I ‘ticked his boxes’…

Flowers for the bridal party, and at the church came from Ian Lloyd – one of the North West’s top floral designers. And beautiful they were too…

My schedule, though tight, gave me opportunity to shoot some natural portraits of Lorna, before I had to head off to The Bridge Hotel and catch up with Hamid and the guests. Time enough for a quick cameo, though…say cheese! 😉

Working alongside me, was Brett from Capture 1 – a total professional, and good fun too….it was good name dropping my previous career in TV Commercials – we knew more common crew members than we thought…

With my camera bag full of confetti, I headed off ahead of the pack to Styal Lodge, to prepare for the Persian wedding ceremony – an abridged version hosted by a family member. Still, it was all very spectacular and colourful, with some fantastic music…

The ceremony was brilliant fun, Lorna even had to bite Hamid’s finger as a sign of trust…erm….

With drinks and canapes in full flow, we headed off to the lake for a few minutes of portraits, and a little chill-out time, and back via the garden for a few more snaps, we headed in to the wedding breakfast, beautifully laid out in a stunning style (no pun intended!) by the fantastic Pink Pepper caterers, headed by the lovely Sarah & Neil. These guys really are top drawer – a must shortlist for your wedding.posing by the lake at styal lodgestyal_lodge_wedding_photography066the lake at styalstyal_lodge_wedding_photography069styal_lodge_wedding_photography070styal_lodge_wedding_photography071styal_lodge_wedding_photography072styal_lodge_wedding_photography073styal_lodge_wedding_photography074styal_lodge_wedding_photography075styal_lodge_wedding_photography076styal_lodge_wedding_photography077

After the cake cutting, tha dancefloor filled. We had to clear it after an hour to let the newlyweds have their first dance. I must admit, the music was addictive, but I refrained from demonstrating Class 1 Dad Dancing to 80 guests….phew!
