Shrigley Hall Wedding Photography
Emma & Russell recently chose me for their wedding photography at the stunning Cheshire wedding venue. Read all about their lovely day below
Originally built as a country house for William Turner in 1825, Shrigley Hall is now used as a hotel and country club. The hotel has quickly become one of the most exclusive wedding venues in Cheshire. Located just outside of Pott Shrigley, to the south of Manchester, Shrigley Hall Hotel gives you everything you could want for your wedding day. Shrigley Hall overlooks the stunning Cheshire countryside and gives you easy access to the Peak District. The staff, decor and grounds are stunning and if you are thinking of getting married in Cheshire, then this is one venue you should definitely consider.
A very special wedding day at the beautiful Cheshire venue Shrigley Hall Hotel
Emma and Russell chose this stunning wedding venue located to the south of Manchester just outside Pott Shrigley. The wedding ceremony took place on a very grey and damp October day, but that did not take anything away from the gorgeous setting overlooking the Cheshire country side. I arrived early to have a walk around the venue as this was my first time photographing this particular Cheshire wedding venue. I found lots of nice spots where I planned on taking some of the necessary posed photos (I know we all hate the posed ones! I like nothing better than beautiful natural photos but these are great photos for your future family members to look back on and remember!).
Meeting the bride..
After having a good look around and taking a few photographs of the ceremony room, I headed up to the bridal suite to begin Emmas prep photos. The bridal suite was very large and bright with the huge glass windows filling the room with beautiful natural light. This allowed me to do what I like best, hang around in the back ground and photograph all of the precious natural and relaxed photos that everyone loves. I also had lots of time to chat with the bride about her wedding day and also get any last minute requests for pictures.
The wedding ceremony and evening reception
The ceremony took place in the Woodford Suite of Shrigley Hall Hotel which had the perfect colours for the Autumn themed wedding. Again natural light flooded the room which is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of any wedding photographers working at the venue. Emma walked down the aisle with her Mother and the Groom was able to see his bride for the first time wearing that incredible dress. The ceremony was beautiful and I managed to capture lots of wonderful photos that showed the emotion and love between the newly weds. After the ceremony we headed out for those posed group photos that everybody hates! The weather did actually hold off long enough to those shots. I also captured some stunning confetti photographs which show the fun and feelings of the day. The day moved on to the wedding breakfast. I have to congratulate Shrigley Hall Hotel on their food, I have eaten at venues all over the UK and the food here was amongst the best I have had. Next came the speeches, where the best man did what he does best and embarrassed both the bride and groom! I have to say this was one of the best speeches of all time. This is also one of the moments wedding photographers love the most. As we are able to capture the fun and laughter along with tears. The real life and soul of the wedding day and those precious memories that you will love to look back on. Finally the day moved on to the evening where the guests were able to relax and dance around on the dance floor. After the customary first dance, the men and women had an awesome dance off which was full of laughter. Have a browse through the Shrigley Hall wedding day below.
