Wedding at The Belle Epoque
Nearly three years passed between the first time I shot a wedding at The Belle Epoque and the next wedding I photographed. In March 2016 I shot Steph and Gary’s intimate wedding then, like buses, two more came along in a week. I shot Hayley and Tim’s Belle Epoque wedding photography in June a week before my third 2016 Belle Epoque wedding a week later. However, I was very much looking forward to returning to one of the most unique wedding venues in Cheshire. The Belle Epoque is a terrific venue for a wedding, intimate and dark, it has its own unique look and feel. It’s also a superb restaurant and haunt of many a celebrity, so it’s easy to see why Hayley and Tim booked their wedding at the Belle Epoque.
Hayley got ready at her house before making her way to The Belle Epoque where Tim was patiently waiting at the top of the aisle. As you’ll see from the photos below, Belle Epoque wedding photography is pretty challenging. The Nikon’s coped admirably though and as soon as Hayley and Tim had said their ‘I do’s’ it was out into the gardens for the wedding reception.
The guests were entertained by the superb Tom Seals whilst enjoying champagne in the Belle Epoque grounds. Tom Seals is one of the leading jazz pianists in the country and he is astonishingly talented. Performing alongside Tom was Sam Healey on Sax. Sam also perform with leading Manchester wedding band The Rush (who I am working with quite a few times this year) and the combination of the Tom and Sam was amazing. If you’re looking for musicians for your wedding day they check out Tom Seals. Easily one of the most talented musicians I have ever seen perform.
After the reception in the gardens and the wedding breakfast the guests enjoyed the speeches before Hayley and Tim made the most of the low sun over Knutsford as we made our way out for some natural couple photos. Before I knew it, it was time for the first dance at Hayley and Tim’s Belle Epoque wedding. However, it wouldn’t be long before I would be back for some more Belle Epoque wedding photography as I returned a week later to shoot Julia and Jo’s wedding (which is coming to the blog soon!)
So here’s Hayley and Tim’s Belle Epoque wedding photography. Music by COLLEAGUES, photos by me…
