Photographing Weddings At Sandhole Oak Barn
I don’t know even where to begin to talk about the really special wedding venue that is Sandhole Oak Barn. Being a wedding photographer at this Cheshire venue is just so wonderful. I have photographed a few weddings here and love coming back every year to photograph more. No two weddings are the same, and Sandhole Oak Barn offers you the opportunity to have a unique day. Set in the rural countryside it offers both a rustic barn and a large lake at the back making it a venue only dreams are made of. In every direction it looks good in photos, so many great images to be had.
Relaxed & Natural Style Photography Coverage
My style of wedding photography is a little different to most as I’m a documentary style photographer. This means I don’t pose anything, and let your wedding day flow naturally. The most important aspect of my work is I’m not taking photos for you to look back on 20 days after your wedding. I’m capturing memories for you for you to look over with your kids in 20 years’ time. It’s the special moments shared with family and friends that will become treasured heirlooms. The loving moments, the little touches, the happiness, the celebration, the tears – I want you to look back at your wedding photos from Sandhole Oak Barn remembering your loved ones for who they were, celebrating their personalities. I don’t stop or fake anything – this is meaningless.
Sandhole Oak Barn is a converted old barn on farmland, but designed with weddings in mind. It is light and airy and allows your guests to move effortlessly from your ceremony to your drinks reception then on to your meal and evening party. T has large windows which allows light to shine through and giving your guests views over the lake and the countryside beyond. You don’t have to use the barn for your ceremony. If you are lucky enough to have a beautiful day then the Clock Tower becomes the perfect outdoor setting to say your vows and be married. Within the barn sits a grand piano. Jet black – perfect for reflection shots and doing something a little creative with my camera. The natural wooden floors gives Sandhole Oak barn a rustic feel you will love.
Below is a series of photos taken by myself at the venue. I love being a wedding photographer at Sandhole Oak Barn and I would be delighted to join you on your special day to capture your memories for you and your family. If you are getting married at Sandhole Oak Barn, please get in touch to see if I am available.

Top Table Wedding Catering
One of the great perks of being a photographer, at Sandhole, or any other venue, is that you get to eat great food. Top Table are the caterers for weddings taking place at the barn and there food is simply exceptional. Below are a handful of photos of some of the delicious canapés being served to the guests after the ceremony and during the reception. Delicious!
The perfect venue for a wedding
Sandhole also offers luxury accommodation for you and your guests. Somewhere for them to stay after the party finishes. The bridal suit is just perfect for you and your bridesmaids to get ready, including lots of large mirrors which I enjoying playing with reflections in your wedding photos making creative angles. The boys get ready in the little barn to the side which is actually a surprisingly large space. I’ve been in here many times when the groom and ushers all get ready and sometimes have a drink or two.
In summery this is just a wonderful venue to photograph at. Sandhole Oak Barn offers it all, time and time again I am surprised at how incredible it is when I photograph there. I want to join you on your wedding adventure. Please get in touch to see if I am free on your wedding day.
