Styal Lodge Wedding Photography

Its always a pleasure to head back out to Styal Lodge, Cheshire after shooting one of my first weddings here all those years ago! I joined Clare & James to capture their Styal Lodge wedding in October and was treated to the most gorgeous, autumnal themed day. My second shooter and I covered bridal prep at Styal & groom prep at the nearby Stanneylands Hotel ahead of a civil ceremony in Styal's purpose built contemporary wedding barn.

Styal is a perfect venue for putting your own stamp on your wedding day, offered as a blank canvas to style as suits you. Clare and James dressed the barn with large florals and berry reds, perfect for shooting alongside details, which you all know I love!

The ceremony was so lovely, with a very emotional James upon seeing Clare heading down the aisle!

Guests enjoyed an afternoon of drinks and canapés while Styal's wedding co-ordinator took us lakeside in their dedicated golf buggy for portraits. As well as the lake Styal Lodge has lots of pretty spots for wedding photographs, including the landscaped gardens and the front of the barn, which we made use of too! Here are some faves from the day!
