Amanda and Rob were married a couple of weeks ago and they picked a fantastic venue to get married in, Willington Hall near Chester, Cheshire. This was not the first wedding I have shot at Willington Hall, being one of their preferred photographers too. Having your wedding here is always a magical experience, the venue and surroundings are amazing and the staff really friendly too.
I started the day photographing the amazing venue with my drone as it makes for an exciting and different way to begin the story. Shortly afterwards I met up with Amanda and the girls for their bridal prep, while Neil met Rob and the lads for their groom prep - as it was also perfect venue for the Rob to prepare for his big day too.
As Amanda came down the stairs on her way to the ceremony, she looked really excited and nervous to finally get married to Rob. I think Rob was more nervous though! Amanda and Rob decided to celebrate their wedding in the amazing Orangery, a great fairly new addition to Willington Hall where friends and family were touched when the newlyweds said their emotional vows.
It was a lovely atmosphere and everyone really enjoyed themselves afterwards at the reception, making use of the outdoor terrace while the sun was out. Just walking around the venue you can see how much effort Amanda and Rob had put into making their day extra special.
I love photographing summer weddings as the scenery can be spectacular, and the surroundings at Willington Hall make this a pleasure. Amanda and Rob were lucky to have a sunny (but breezy) day, which was a blessing and all the guests were able to enjoy the grounds.
During the speeches, I get to listen to some incredible stories of couples when photographing wedding ceremonies in Cheshire - Amanda and Robs was no exception.
The happy couple finished off their celebration with a Star Wars take over, and then onto their first dance. Shortly afterwards we left them to party the night away.
I knew it was going to be a fantastic wedding when Amanda and Rob booked me to photograph it and I won't forget that one in a long time.
