Cranage Hall Wedding Photography
Lindsay was preparing with her bridesmaids at her parents house. When I arrived I was greeted by Mum and Dad with a selection of Oak Cakes to choose from for my breakfast. Any readers that live outside of Staffordshire will be as flummoxed as I was by the term ‘Oak Cake’, (the BBC website refers to them as “looking like wet flannels “) but after some encouragement from Lindsay, I plumped for one filled with bacon and cheese – it was amazing, and I am now an Oak Cake convert!
Fully fuelled, I was ready to continue documenting the day. The reception and ceremony was at Cranage Hall in Cheshire, and this was my first wedding at this beautiful venue. Lindsay arrived in a classic VW camper, whilst Matt was waiting nervously with his best man. A super happy ceremony followed, with some touching and funny readings.
Whist the happy newlyweds enjoyed chatting with family and friends during the reception, I mingled with the guests and continued to capture the story of the day – before heading off for ten minutes to get some portraits around the grounds of Cranage.
The relaxed atmosphere continued with afternoon tea – which was proceeded by the speeches. Best man Jonathan embarrassing the groom to great effect -with stories of Matt’s love of dance at school 🙂
It was a great day, and a pleasure to be a part of. Some kind words from Matthew, and a few of my favourite Cranage hall wedding images below…
We can’t thank you enough for the job you’ve done. They all look amazing! ….We’re both so pleased with how you captured the day!
