Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography – Sarah and Andrew

Weddings | 05.09.2013

 

Sarah & Andrew’s wedding feels like a LONG time ago now and the main reason I haven’t blogged it on here yet is that we were lucky enough to have it featured on Brides Up North wedding blog – but it still needed a place on my blog too!

Sarah & Andrew were married at the amazing Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire and it was lovely as always to work with my lovely friends from Top Table , Top DJ Andy Murphy and the best band in the wedding business, The Coolers!

Here’s the story of Sarah & Andrew’s winter wonderland wedding :)

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photographs – Katie and Paul

Weddings | 18.01.2013

I LOVE winter weddings :) I REALLY love winter weddings at amazing venues with amazing brides and grooms – and I got pretty lucky with these two as their venue falls into the ‘amazing’ category as do they!!! :)

I love photographing weddings at Sandhole Oak Barn – it’s such a stunning venue. I was particularly looking forward to Katie & Paul’s wedding there as I was getting to work with my lovely friends at Top Table Caterers (who always do an amazing job and their food is gorgeous!) as well as The Coolers (one of my favourite bands) and top wedding DJ, Gary Mills and I got to work with the awesome guys from Reel Vision for the very first time – what lovely chaps too!

A great day and night was in store for us all!

So I started off in the morning at Katie’s Mum and Dad’s house in Disley to shoot some gorgeous bridal prep photos…

The Wedding Industry Awards – Best North West Photographer is…

Personal | 19.12.2012

…Jonny Draper Photography!!!  How awesome is that?!?!

A massive thank you to all my amazing brides and grooms who voted for me to be shortlisted initially and a huge thank you to the judges at The Wedding Industry Awards for recognising what I do :)

It is a huge honour to have won – I was standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the best wedding photographers not only in the North West, but in my opinion, the UK, and to be judged as being the best is something that I can’t quite get my head around…

This blog post contains a single image from each wedding that I shot within the voting period (which was REALLY hard to choose!) as an extra thank you to my amazing brides and grooms for trusting me, for pushing me to raise the bar at every wedding, for not thinking I’m a little bit mental with some of the suggestions I sometimes make and for voting for me in these awards.  Thank you so much to each and every one of you :)

These images are in no particular order – I love them all equally :)

Christenings | 25.06.2012

With all manner of exciting things going on at the moment, shooting weddings at home and overseas, being in the middle of opening our very own Bridal Boutique in Cheshire and just generally being up to our eyes in it (!) has meant that my blogging has taken a bit of a hit recently… So today is a brief round up of what I’ve been shooting over the last few weeks and what you can expect to see more of on my blog in the coming days and weeks! I’ve also got features that will be appearing on RocknRollBride, English Wedding, Brides Up North and Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, over the coming weeks so lot’s of new things for you all to see very soon!

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography – Carly and Ian

Weddings | 16.03.2012

Wow – what an amazing day at Sandhole Oak Barn for Carly and Ian’s wedding! I’ve had a LOT of fun with these guys since I met them last year (flaming cocktails anyone?!) and I always knew that their day was going to be something special. They just wanted to have a great time celebrating with their friends and family and get some great images along the way. I was lucky enough to be working with my great friends Annette and Rene from Top Table Catering (thank you so much for looking after so well as always ladies!) and it’s always great fun to work with the BEST wedding band out there – The Coolers.

Here’s a few of my favourites from Carly and Ian’s amazing day…starting with meeting up with Carly in the morning at Sandhole Oak Barn…

Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Jess and Mike

Weddings | 01.08.2011

Yey! Another GORGEOUS Styal Lodge Wedding! Jess & Mike are the loveliest couple and I was so pleased that the weather was perfect for them. They got to hang out with all their friends and family on the Styal Lodge suntrap that is their terrace – what a way to spend your wedding day!

So a little sneak preview to give you a flavour for their gorgeous day, starting with Mike, fully uniformed up having just arrived in his Lotus Exige (in layman’s terms, it’s basically an Elise but better!)…

Top 20 of 2011 – So far…

Weddings | 20.07.2011

How about a ‘midseason’ review then? I thought I’d showcase my favourite 20 images shot at weddings so far this year. The rules? Only one image per wedding is allowed and I’m not allowed to waffle on for ages about boring technical things! A simple sentence with each image to explain why it’s my favourite from that particular wedding.

I’ve been very lucky again this year to work alongside some of my favourite wedding friends at so many of these weddings and all these images feature them. Not in shot. In true ‘Jerry Maguire’ style, they are somewhere just out of shot! So a big thank you to my great friends at Styal Lodge, Silk Wedding Videos, Flower Design, One and Only Bridal Couture, The Coolers, Rowley’s Catering, Timeless Bride, Green Earth Flowers, Lytham Hall, Charlotte Balbier, The White Closet, Top Table Events, Emma Draper MUA, Didsbury Life, The Flower Lounge and And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon to name just a few!

The images are in no particular order – I love them all equally!

So we start with a gorgeous shot of Ruth of off Ruth and Andy who were married at The Ashes in April.  I love it’s ethereal (ness!)  That is all!

ruth_andy_wedding_sneakblog_002

Dawn and Phil and the surprise organised by her friends at school – this is Dawn’s class forming a guard of honour with hockey sticks on her arrival at church!  What’s not to love?!

Emma & Pete.  Drinking with a helping hand from their friends.  Need I say more?!?!

Jacqui & Will at Styal Lodge.  A beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple.  They’ve gone back to London now and I miss them.  Sniff….

Carrie & Rob at Oddfellows in Chester.  Uber cool.

Sian and Dave at The Inn at Whitewell.  I actually saw one of their friends comment on Facebook that this shot summed up their day.  The weather, the happy vibe, the excitement.  So that’s why it’s here!  ‘Cos I agree!

Mel & Jivko‘s Conway Castle wedding.  This shot is all about Jivko’s flick of the veil!

Lisa and Eric at Thornton Manor.  Does this shot need a reason?!?!

Possibly the closest wedding I’ll ever do to my front door!  Lisa & Alex’s ‘Secret’ West Didsbury Wedding.  This shot just sums up everything about the coolest part of South Manchester…

lisa_alex_wedding_lores_122

So that’s it so far!  Gorgeous couples, gorgeous venues and all round gorgeousness!  Plenty more to come the rest of the year which I’m sure will be just as fab as the first half of the year has been!

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photographs – Leona and Will

Weddings | 07.05.2011

Wowsers. Yesterday was just incredible. The most beautiful bride and groom, the loveliest family & friends you could ever wish to meet, an amazing venue and caterer and more Charlotte Balbier dresses than you could shake a stick it!

Leona & Will were married at Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire and it was perfect in every single way.

Here’s a slightly extended ‘sneak peek’ (I tried to keep it under ten images but their were too many beautiful things to share with you!) starting off with Leona’s incredible Charlotte Balbier gown, Eden – which is from the 2011 English Tea Party Collection

leona_will_wedding_sneakblog_001

The bridesmaids (all 7!) were going to be wearing gorgeous Amanda Wyatt gowns (hung on the rack on the left!)

leona_will_wedding_sneakblog_002

The bridesmaids had gorgeous Charlotte Balbier hair accessories too!

leona_will_wedding_sneakblog_003

Love this!

leona_will_wedding_sneakblog_004

Charlotte was actually one of Leona’s bridesmaids and made sure everyone looked stunningly perfect!  Busman’s holiday?!?!?

Leona.  Quite possibly the most stunning bride ever.

What a day for it!

leona_will_wedding_sneakblog_010

Annette, Reeny & the team at Top Table had done an amazing job with decorating the venue and the food was amazing as always (I can vouch for that first hand as I was lucky enough to be seated on the bridesmaid’s table!)

leona_will_wedding_sneakblog_011

The fabulous Zoe Chiotis performed during the wedding breakfast…

That’s it for now!

Congratulations once again!  Big thanks to Leona & Will and Leona’s Mum and Dad, Kath & Rob for making me feel so welcome – like part of the family!

Thanks also to Charlotte B for looking after me on the scary bridesmaids table!  There was jager and everything!

More coming soon…

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography – Dawn and Phil

Weddings | 03.04.2011

Wowsers – what an incredible day yesterday was! Dawn & Phil got married in their local church in Widnes and then we made our way to the amazing Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire for their reception.

The wind and rain from the previous day (and the morning!) had disappeared and the drinks reception was held on Sandhole’s gorgeous terrace – something that none of us had been banking on this early in the year! So everyone was absolutely delighted!

A little sneaky peek at a few shots from yesterday which really do give a great feel for the kind of amazing day it was…

Starting off with the ‘guard of honour’ on her arrival made up of the kids from Dawn’s own class at school (she’s not in the class, she’s their teacher!) which was organised as a surprise for Dawn! How lovely!

dawn_phil_wedding_sneakblog_001

What an afternoon!
