Tatton Hall Wedding Photography

Rachael & Pat’s Tatton Hall Wedding Photography from their stunning Autumn wedding

Exclusive Cheshire Wedding Venue

Rachel & Pat contacted me last winter to produce their Tatton Hall wedding photography. How could I say no! Tatton is an incredible venue for weddings and events. A proper multinational event this promised to be with Rachael hailing from the US via Germany, and guests from all over the world it seemed…even Manchester!

The Mere Golf Resort & Spa

Rachael and the girls were getting ready at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa, and my schedule allowed for an hour or so with them. After quickly photographing Rachael’s stunning dress by Puure Bride in Lymm, shoes etc, I documented the mild chaos of the ladies having their makeup done. Jokingly I mentioned it was ‘no place for a fella’…and that morning I truly believed it…only kidding Rachael 😉

Tatton Park Weddings and Events

On schedule, I arrived at Tatton Park to photograph the groom and his groomsmen sharing a few jokes together. But no Pat! He was running late since he had to get back to his hotel to pick something up he’d forgotten…

Horse drawn wedding carriage in Cheshire

But…duly on time came Rachael and her father in a stunning white horse drawn carriage from The Ostler. Stopping the traffic, as is a bride’s wish, the polite tailback of cars behind the carriage was spectacular…but, hey! No rush everybody…. 😉

Emotional Wedding Vows

The vows and the readings at Rachael & Pat’s ceremony were heartfelt and poignant. Not a dry eye in the house it seemed…and we were only twenty minutes in…

Wedding Photos at Tatton Hall

As the wedding guests went upstairs for canapes and drinks, we ‘hung around’ outside for twenty minutes’ worth of bride and groom portraits. Rachael & Pat then went off for a ride in the carriage on their own. We were now ahead of schedule…I know, I’m just too kind to my clients…. 😉

The Tennant’s Hall at Tatton

Beautifully set up for Rachael and Pat’s wedding breakfast, the Tennant’s Hall was beautifully candle-lit. In photography speak, that musually means dark – but I’m a low light specialist so I love shootiong lighting like this. On duty was Russell Shaun – a brilliant Rat Pack & Swing singer. It was my first time working with Russell; a lovely man who ‘does exactly what it says on the tin’. Close your eyes, and you’re almost at a Matt Monroe gig….and well worth checking out for your wedding or event.

With pre-dinner dancing, full ensemble singing by all the guests, and a brilliant party atmosphere, the stage was set for the brilliant speeches and first dance. All taken in it’s stride by Russell – our MC too for the evening.
