I have been a wedding photographer at Colshaw Hall before but only in the winter, so when Paul and Heather asked me to photograph their wedding day at this wonderful Cheshire venue I was absolutely delighted. It was even more special because Paul is a wedding videographer, who clearly knows his stuff when it comes to capturing moments at weddings. I simply couldn’t wait for their day and it proved just incredible to be part of.
Wedding Dress on at Colshaw Hall
Heather, along with her bridesmaids, flower girls and the couples baby daughter, got ready at her family home. Whereas Paul and the groomsmen had their wedding preparations at their own home. The final stages of getting ready, including putting on the wedding dress happened at Colshaw Hall. The ceremony room at this spectacular venue is called The Stables and is just perfect for wedding ceremonies. The bride and her bridesmaids made the short trip over to be married via gold cart which is quite a bit of fun, before heading down the isle. The ceremony as that much more special because they had their baby daughter with them also.
Natural, Documentary Wedding Photography
After the ceremony the guests headed outside to toss confetti over the newlyweds, before then making the short walk up to the main building of Colshaw Hall for their drinks reception. As the day got warmer and brighter, the guests headed outside in the courtyard to play lawn games and for the formal family portraits. Heather and Paul went for a walk around the grounds for their own photos together. We did this again later in the evening when the sun was setting.
This beautiful wedding day at Colshaw Hall continued with emotional speeches, a quiz, cake cutting and then the first dance and party. It was such a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful wedding day. Below is just a small sequence of photos that the newly married couple received. My style of photography is documentary which means i ask you just enjoy your day – no posing at all. A big thank you to Dan Wimble who shadowed me at this wedding.
Enjoy looking though the gallery.

Text message from Sandra (Heather’s Mum):
“Hi David, I just want to say we have been blown away by the photographers, I actually sobbed all the way through the slideshow and when I first saw it and it took quite a few viewings before I could watch it without crying!! The collection of pics you took is nothing short of spectacular and you captured the day in the most natural way possible with wonderful detail to the most moving parts of our very special family day. It has been a delight to look effortlessly back through how our guests spent their day and everybody has a beautiful picture of themselves to treasure, particularly the parents of the children. Thank you so much for giving us the very special gift of the day to treasure in all its natural, emotional, and fun glory.”
