Colshaw Hall Wedding Photography

What an amazing Colshaw Hall wedding! When I met up with Elizabeth and David a few weeks before the wedding for their pre wedding shoot at Dunham Massey, I knew it was going to be a cracking day. This was my first time at Colshaw Hall and as a wedding photographer I was spoiled for choice with photo opportunities.

Their day was a full of emotion as the wedding was planned since the devastating news of Elizabeth's dad having cancer. It was a wedding I really wanted to cover for the family when I heard their story. There was lots of fun, laughter, but also lots of emotion. Weddings are special days, as it’s not just about two people coming together, it’s about families, their stories, and creating special memories for everyone involved. This wedding wasn’t just about Elizabeth and David, it was also about their son, Elizabeth’s dad and all their family and friends.

On the day we had a beautiful bride and groom and the most incredible light to play with for most the day, a photographers dream. This isn’t a Colshaw Hall wedding that I will forget in a hurry. The hall's dining room was set up so lovely for the ceremony and made for the perfect ceremony venue.

With the wedding day being in November - we were also treated with an early sunset making way for some stunningly lit early-evening portraits, with christmas around the corner Colshaw Hall also had their christmas fairy lights out which we managed to make use of for some stunning portraits.

To get everybody warmed up and in the mood for a good dance, Max Vickers was on hand with his acoustic guitar to really get the guests going! It didn’t take long before the entire room were up singing and dancing. After the first dance and before the real partying commenced we quickly whisked Elizabeth and David into the courtyard for a quick sparkler-heart shot to end the day.

To Elizabeth and David, we know you had the most amazing wedding and it was a joy to share it with you. All the best for the future. We're now very much looking forward to our next Colshaw Hall wedding!
