Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Jess and Matt

Weddings | 20.09.2012

This was a gorgeous wedding at one of my absolute favourite Cheshire venues! I love photographing weddings at Styal Lodge – the venue itself, the team that work the weddings, the relaxed feel that you get as soon as you walk through the door – it’s an amazing place to get married!   I was also very excited about working with some of my great wedding friends including the BEST wedding band out there, The Coolers, top wedding DJ, Andy Murphy and the amazing caterers, Barretts.  I also had a soft spot for Jess’s gorgeous Amanda Wyatt dress too…!!!

Jess and Matt were having their full day at Styal Lodge, including Jess using the lodge’s stunning bridal sitting room to get ready in, so I arrived in the morning to see what was going on…

Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Andy and Seb

Civil Partnership | 12.08.2012

What a beautiful day this was! During one of the runs of weather I’ve seen in ages, the sun sneaked out at the right times for Seb and Andy’s wedding at Styal Lodge. Yep, there were a couple of umbrella moments, but nothing too serious and certainly nothing to dampen the spirits of Seb & Andy’s friends and family (excuse the pun!)

Here’s a few of my favourites from their amazing day…

Styal Lodge Wedding Photographs – Suzie and Mark

Weddings | 10.07.2012

Where do I start with this wedding?!  It was AMAZING!  Amazing bride and groom, amazing venue, amazing videographer, amazing vodka drinking skills from the guests (!) it had everything!  Suzie & Mark were married at the stunning Styal Lodge in Cheshire on Saturday and I think a lot of their guests are still recovering now!  The weather turned out perfect.  After weeks of rubbish, typical ‘british summer’ weather, Suzie & Mark got the lone day of sunshine (and warm sunshine too!) this month looks like offering!

So I met Suzie and the girls at one of the most stunning Manchester venues, Great John Street Hotel, where they were getting ready for the big day…

Styal Lodge Wedding Photographs – Vicki and James

Weddings | 07.10.2010

Vicki & James were married in Mexico a couple of months ago in a beautiful, intimate family setting – but couldn’t resist a party with all their friends and family when they got back! Cue a beautiful evening at the magnificent Styal Lodge in Cheshire…

Vicki & James timed their lantern release to perfection – if you wait until just before it’s ‘properly’ dark, you get this amazing deep blue sky just like we got.  When it’s fully dark the sky reflects street lights and other unnatural light like that and actually takes on an orange glow – which doesn’t look anywhere near as spectactular (sorry, that all got a bit geeky!)

Big thanks to Poppy from Styal Lodge for being my ‘V.A.L’ (Voice Activated Lightstand!) which really made these shots.

Massive congratulations to Vicki & James – what a great night!  Big thanks to Georgina at Styal Lodge for looking after me as always – Styal Lodge really is one of my absolute favourite places to work, it’s a completely unique venue, run by a family that genuinely cares about each and every couple that hold their celebrations with them.  What more could you want in a venue?!

Styal Lodge Wedding Photographs – Livy & Owen

Weddings | 26.04.2010

I shot the most fantastic wedding on saturday, the weather was glorious, the church and venue (the superb Styal Lodge) magnificent and most importantly, the bride and groom and all their family and friends were so, so lovely.  It was a genuine honour to be a part of Livy and Owen’s special day and I’m delighted that they’ve managed to get away on honeymoon after some volcanic ash concerns!

So here’s the little sneak preview I promised them, I’ve just picked out 4 shots to tease them with!  We got amazing stuff all day long and I was so excited to look through them when I got in and downloaded them on saturday night.

Here’s a little taster…

001
002

All the tables had pictures of Livy and Owen in various guises from years gone by – this was the top table…love it!

003

How ridiculously cool do Livy and Owen look?!  I love this shot of them at Styal Lodge.  I won’t go into full details about the day yet, I’ll save that for the full post once Livy and Owen are back from honeymoon and have seen all the shots, but the whole day was fantastic.  It’s brilliant working with brides and groom’s who are so excited about every part of their day and who are really keen to get some amazing shots to really capture the spirit and atmosphere of it.

004

So that’s it for the time being!  Livy and Owen – have an incredible time and I can’t wait to see you and hear all about the honeymoon when you get back!
