Wedding at Colshaw Hall // Tania and Tom

Wedding at Colshaw Hall

Tania and Tom had their wedding at Colshaw Hall, one of Cheshire’s most exclusive wedding venues. I love weddings at Colshaw Hall and have been lucky enough to have shot quite a few weddings there including Naomi and Tom’s wedding which you can see here. I met up with Tania at her parents home close to Colshaw Hall for the bridal make up. It was great to work alongside Laura Mayers who was on make up duty. Once Tania and her bridesmaids were all set, I made the journey over to Colshaw Hall where the girls were finishing getting ready. Once Tania was in her dress it was over to The Stables to see Tom. It’s safe to say Tom looked a little nervous and with good reason as the Stables was absolutely packed with guests. Also performing were a full choir and harpist to add something even more special to Tania and Tom’s wedding service.

Wonderful Atmosphere

Tania arrived on Colshaw Hall’s golf buggy and made her big entrance. Tom managed to just about hold it together as Tania joined him at the top of the aisle. Their service was fantastic with the choir creating a wonderful atmosphere and with guests encouraged (very enthusiastically) to join in by the choir it was an uplifting a fun marriage service. After a cracker of a confetti photo, Tania and Tom and their guests enjoyed canapes and drinks on the lawn at Colshaw Hall. With the couple photos shot in twenty minutes,Tania and Tom re-joined their guests for the wedding breakfast. The speeches were very funny and ended with Tom being ‘knighted’ by his best man. With the first dance starting off the evening ceremony I left Tania and Tom to enjoy the rest of their wedding at Colshaw Hall.

So here’s Tania and Tom’s wedding at Colshaw Hall. Music by COLLEAGUES, photos by me…

Emily and Chris’ Peover Wedding

Emily and Chris’ Peover Wedding

Emily and Chris’ wedding was at one of my favourite wedding venues, the stunning Colshaw Hall. I shot my first wedding back in 2014 (Naomi and Tom’s wedding which you can see here) and I couldn’t wait to shoot Emily and Chris’ wedding as it is a top class venue in Cheshire. Helping me out was James Andrew, who was on second shooting duty, so James started the day at Cottons Hotel and Spa with Chris and the lads whilst I met up with Emily at Colshaw Hall.

It was my first time working alongside Matt from Aaron Rose Wedding Films who is a thoroughly top fella. It was great to see Chloe Johnson on make up duties again (we worked together at Lauren and Barry’s wedding at The Midland Hotel). Once the bridal preparation were complete I made the short journey over to the Stables for the marriage ceremony. With a few tears (bit plenty more smiles) it was a lovely emotional service before the guests showered Emily and Chris with confetti.

Gardens of Colshaw Hall

As it was a rare dry day in summer (thankfully) Emily and Chris had their reception in the private garden of Colshaw Hall where their guests enjoyed canapes and drink. Emily and Chris joined me, James and Matt for 20 minutes of couple photos (and video) in the gardens of Colshaw Hall before returning for their big entrance into their wedding breakfast.

Following the wedding breakfast (that tasted awesome, big thanks to Barrett’s Event Caterers for sorting some food for us too) and the speeches, Emily and Chris headed outside to cut the wedding cake before their first dance and evening reception. Great to see John King from The RUSH again and they had the dance floor packed (as always) ! Big thanks as always to Shelley and the team at Colshaw Hall for making me feel so welcome, to James Andrew for his efforts on the day and to Matt for being a proper good laugh to work alongside.

So here’s Emily and Chris’ wedding day . Music by Oh Land, photos by me…
