Colshaw Hall wedding|Kate and Andrew

Kate and Andrew’s lovely Colshaw Hall wedding was a real hoot to photograph. A lovely couple and great crowd.

Cool VW camper van wedding

I photographed Kate’s bridal preparations at Cottons, Knutsford. I’ve shot there many times. This time we had a bustling and full room with a happy atmosphere. I took some lovely moments while Kate and the girls did their hair and makeup. Once Kate was in her dress I did my usual quick bridal portrait session before heading off to Colshaw Hall for the service.

I arrived at Colshaw Hall and found Andrew having a laugh with his ushers and best men. The weather was beautiful at Colshaw Hall as I waited outside for Kate’s arrival. Kate arrived in a beautiful classic VW camper van. Kate and Andrew chose to have their wedding in ‘the stables’ a purpose built wooden structure inside Colshaw Halls grounds complete with clock tower. The Stables let in loads of light which makes it perfect for photography. Add that to the wonderful Cheshire registrars and their relaxed approach to wedding photographers and this becomes a great place to photograph a wedding in Cheshire. Cheshire wedding photographers are really spoilt with the unhindered access they give us.

After the service, everyone went outside into the sun. Unlike some venues, Colshaw Hall allows confetti which is great. I left Kate and Andrew to have fun with their friends while I captured the day in my usual unintrusive documentary photography style.

I also took a few family group pictures. This was followed by a short couple photo shoot around the stunning grounds before heading inside for the wedding breakfast and speeches.

After the speeches and cutting of the cake it everyone went into full party mode ready for the dj and of course – the first dance.
