Unique Cheshire Wedding Venue

I love photographing a Styal Lodge Wedding. In fact, I shot one of (if not the) first weddings there. I always look forward to photographing a wedding at this unique Cheshire wedding venue, since it has plenty to offer, both the couple….and their wedding photographer. Styal Lodge is high on many photographer’s favourite venues to work at….mine included.

Wedding Preparations at Styal Lodge

I started my day earlier than normal, so I could pace myself into capturing those special little moments that I’m hired for. Becky and the girls were in high spirits, the Prosecco was flowing and everyone was excited about the day to come. Bridal preparations are in a separate ground floor suite, next to the ceremony room, so its just a matter of opening the door…and you’re at the head of the aisle!

The lads have it tough though. They have to put up with their own changing room (complete with showers etc) next to the bar. Tough call, but I’m sure they can handle it!

Wedding gifts for the bridesmaids

Mid morning, Becky surprised her bridal party with some lovely gifts…

Pink Pepper Wedding & Event Catering

Sarah & Neil from Pink Pepper Catering create THE most exquisite catering for your Style Lodge Wedding. From afternoon tea in (deliberately!) mis-matched china cups & saucers, to a full-blown banquet, the food is always exquisite. So too is the room styling and service, with Neil as front-of-house with his team, you’d think you were in an exclusive restaurant rather than a wedding with 90+ guests. Awesome…

Not so perfect wedding weather

True to form the rain came, and looked to be staying for the day. No problem though – this was not going to put us off! There was always the flexibility in our timings to move things around. If the worst came to the worst, I would bring out the ‘Bad Boy’ and shoot the group photos inside! Hopefully we would get outside for a few minutes…

Wedding Ceremony at Styal Lodge

As the wedding ceremony time was approaching for this Styal Lodge Wedding, the guests were arriving, the groomsmen were all dressed and testing the quality of the beers in the bar. I was quietly jumping from room to room, capturing the day as it rolled out, and took a few portraits of a VERY excited Becky before going to speak to the registrars.

Getting married at Styal Lodge

The ceremony room to the lodge is large enough to house a good sized wedding, but small enough to maintain its intimacy too. Becky walked down the aisle accompanied by her proud dad. The moment was perfect as I quietly captured the ceremony mostly on 24mm & 50mm prime lenses on my trusty Nikons. I  prefer to use prime lenses for the quality and the ‘look’ of the images.

Wedding Celebrations at a Cheshire Wedding

With the rain relenting, it was time to bring out the ‘Bad Boy’ and photograph the family group photos inside. There was NO chance of venturing out. But, do you know what? I actually really like these family groups. Very minimal and in keeping with the style of the wedding. We even took a few couple portraits against the plain walls, with a little in-camera trickery too… 🙂

Then, all of a sudden the rain stopped, sort of….so we went for a quick shot of the bridesmaids, a classic confetti throw and some more couple photos, ably assisted by the Best Man and an umbrella! And we nailed it!
