Adlington Hall Wedding: Hayley and Mike
Adlington Hall is a gem of a venue, and Hayley and Mike’s big day was the first time I’ve had the pleasure of shooting there, even though its only ten minutes down the road from me in Cheshire. The hall has been part of the Legh family for over 700 years, and to be surrounded by such architecture, paintings and history is an amazing wedding setting 🙂
In the morning I headed to Hayley and Mike’s home in Wilmslow, where Hayley was preparing for the big day with her parents and bridesmaids. It was a super relaxed atmosphere, with champagne flowing as the makeup artists and hairdressers worked away. I documented the anticipation and build up, before heading to Adlington Hall, where Mike was awaiting his bride.
The wedding ceremony was in the stunning great hall, and a beautiful ceremony it was! Afterwards I mingled with the guests as they enjoyed canapés and drinks, capturing the essence of the day. As the wedding breakfast approached, we all made our way over to the adjacent Hunting Lodge, Hayley and Mike being showered with confetti on the way 🙂
Hayley and Mike are hugely into sports, both big runners they met at their local running club – Sale Harriers. The running theme was continued in the reception room with marathon table names and medals on display! All very impressive, especially as my idea of running is a dash to the car when it is raining!
It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the day. I’ll leave you with some Adlington Hall Wedding photographs, a few of my favourites, and words from Hayley and Mike…
“These are just superb. You’ve done such a great job. Thank you!”
