“Oh Adam! They’re just brilliant, more tears galore!”
I was last at the Belle Epoque in Knutsford as a wedding guest! A beautiful venue in the heart of Cheshire, I couldn’t wait to go back again for Rachael and James’s big day.
James is an Aussie, and lots of Rachael’s family are Scottish, it was a meeting of the two cultures – with the Scots keen to show those Aussies how to dance! Rachael and James live in Oz, and it was great to see so many of their family and friends had travelled across with them.
I captured a nice relaxed morning of preparation and anticipation at Rachels parents, before heading over to the local and beautiful St John’s church in Cotebrook. With it being a late-ish January wedding the sun was low in the sky and the light was beautiful streaming through the church windows, but a bit chilly for some of the Aussies I think 😉
As we arrived at the Belle Epoque in Knutsford, the winter light had faded, and the partying started in earnest. I documented all the action until the end of the night, completed with a sparkler arch. What an awesome party!
View my favourite images below, and some very kind words Rachael sent me after they viewed the photos. Huge thanks for having me guys!
“THANK YOU SO MUCH. We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful pics you have taken. I’m so so pleased we picked you, thank you for making the whole process easier from meeting you over the phone, to fitting in with trips back to taking pictures that surpassed my expectations (and they were high). I spent the whole of the year looking at your pictures from other people’s weddings and excited for how ours would turn out, you couldn’t have made me happier. Thank you thank you thank you.”
Midnight sparklers on the high street completed the night, with the local police temporary holding up the traffic for it 🙂
If you are planning a Belle Epoque wedding in Knutsford, or indeed any other Cheshire wedding venue – please contact me about your day!
