Wow, where do I start with this incredible wedding?!?! Claire & Keith got married at one of my absolute favourite Cheshire wedding venues, Merrydale Manor, and it was the most wonderful day from start to finish!
Claire & Keith live overseas, so organised their entire wedding from the other side of the world and it could not have been more perfectly planned. Merrydale Manor is the sister venue to one of my other absolutely favourite Cheshire wedding venues, Colshaw Hall. Both venues operate on the same foundations – the bride and groom are THE most important people in the world, the level of service and attention to detail is second to none and they will do anything and everything to ensure that each and every wedding day is absolutely perfect. And working in that kind of environment is nothing short of perfection! As a supplier working at Merrydale Manor, Michael, Hattie, Ken and all of the team do everything to ensure that the day runs completely smoothly behind the scenes and nothing is too much trouble – they were so incredibly helpful and I can’t wait to work there again!
The day started off in the make up room, where I met Claire and the girls and bumped into my lovely friend, Lisa, of Lisa Simms Bridal Hair and Makeup (I was also lucky enough to work with my lovely friends from Whitfield & Ward, Your Ceremony and Barretts Event Caterers!)
It was a lovely, relaxed morning – just the way it should be as you’re preparing to get married!
When Keith arrived, he spent his time welcoming their guests before it was time to head to the ceremony room.
Claire & Keith wanted the photography to be very relaxed, unobtrusive and documentary in style, which is exactly what we did! I wanted them to enjoy being at their own wedding, rather than being dragged off for hours and hours, so we picked off the groups photographs they wanted to do and then they spent pretty much all of their drinks reception with their guests!
We snuck off for ten minutes after the wedding breakfast to give them a bit of time together and shoot some epic sunset shots, but the majority of their day was spent with me shooting very relaxed, natural images and them spending time with their friends and family – the perfect balance!
I was super excited to shoot this wedding and am equally excited to share them in this blog post! So without further ado, I present to you, Claire & Keith’s beautiful Merrydale Manor Wedding Photographs…..
