Rachel and Mike were married a couple of weeks ago and their wedding took place at Sandhole Oak Barn in Congleton Cheshire. I have photographed here many times before and the scenic nature of the venue makes photographing at the Sandhole Oak Barn a delight, you couldn't ask for a more fantastic venue to get married at. It is always great photographing magical moments in venues like this when working with great couples like Rachel and Mike.
Haslington was a perfect place to begin Rachel's wedding photography, as the makeup was applied and everyones hair was finished off I photographed the small details and the developing story.
Sandhole was a perfect place for the Mike to prepare for his big day along with the guys in the amazing new Shepherds Hut just by the lake at Sandhole. Such a great additional, and well though out.
Once all the prep had finished Rachel arrived at the ceremony and took a deep breath as she made her way towards the venue. It was fantastic to watch Rachel and Mike demonstrate their commitment to each other during their ceremony at Sandhole Oak Barn.
After the ceremony we did took the newly married couple off for some informal portraits - Rachel and Mike took it in their stride and were definitely enjoying this moment among their beloved ones.
The food and service provided by Top Table and Sandhole was second to none, they never fail to impress me!
This was a fantastic wedding and we made sure we got some lovely portraits at the venue at various points through the day. Clouds filled the sky on the day, this acted as a large soft box, which is great for photographs and I even managed to grab some amazing aerial photographs using my drone.
After the first dance, we left Rachel and Mike to party the night away with their friends and family.
Congratulations to an amazing couple!
