Willington Hall Wedding Photography


Willington Hall Wedding Photography

I've been lucky enough to photograph a number of weddings at Willington Hall Hotel over the last couple of years and each and every one of them has been an absolute joy to document.
In fact, my very first wedding was at this very wedding venue for Laura and Adam's special day back in 2014! Since then every time I've revisited this gorgeous wedding venue, I'm always treated to something new and different happening at the Hall.

Cheshire Wedding Venue

The great thing about Willington Hall Hotel is it's versatility. With various different locations to get married both indoors and outdoors, there is so much choice - from the ceremony room at the front of the hall, to the newly built orangery allowing newlywed couples to say their vows underneath the blue skies above - even if it's raining!
On a nice clear bright day there is the choice of either getting married in the small quaint garden temple with it's own private seating area lined with ivy and bushes allowing for a very private and intimate ceremony with friends and family, or you can also have your ceremony outside on the lawn of the garden by the fountain with picturesque views that overlook the idyllic Cheshire countryside and beyond.

Garden Temple

The garden temple is ideal for those mid-summer garden weddings and is great for those weddings with a rustic theme. The seating area is lined with bushes and trees giving the ceremony area privacy and intimacy for the wedded couple and their friends and families. From a photography perspective it's nice to have everybody around so close so that capturing moments can be easily achieved. There is also the option of sneaking around the back of the temple and photographing through a hatch for a nice wide angle photograph of the couple and all guests looking on, which works really well!

Willington Hall Orangery

Willington Hall's Orangery is a great multi-seasonal addition to this wonderful wedding venue. Regardless of the weather outside, this very elegant room allows couples to say their vows and tie the knot in a beautiful setting under the glass ceiling. It's also a great reception room for dining during the wedding breakfast and is perfectly lit for capturing all of the special moments during the speeches. A perfect setting which compliments the hall so well.

Combining the fact the there are so many idyllic settings for perfect wedding portraits, along with the fact that this gem of a wedding venue has so much heritage, I dare to say: "Willington Hall has it all". From the bridal suite with it's traditional four poster bed setting which overlooks the fountain in the middle of the grounds, to the elegant wooden staircase which leads down into the hallway, there are so many features to this wedding venue. 

Willington Hall really is a stunning venue and I am privileged to have photographed weddings here on numerous occasions.  If you are looking for a natural wedding photographer then please get in touch to chat about your wedding plans.
