Last weekend we were back at The Hunting Lodge and Adlington Hall in Cheshire. It is one of our favourite Cheshire wedding venues as it is very close to where we are based, is a beautiful venue that has great gardens and wonderful staff.
Most weddings we photograph at Adlington Hall use just the Hunting Lodge, but for this wedding the ceremony took place in the Hall itself, with The Hunting Lodge being used for the wedding breakfast.
We are known as wedding photographers who don’t intude, don’t pose too many pictures and stay in the background, photographing scenes as we see them rather than staging everything – and this wedding was no different. The bride requested no preparation pictures and asked us to tell the story of the day whilst being seen as little as possible. This we did, and it worked very well despite the weather not being great. Adlington Hall looks good in the rain, but is even better if the sun shines!
The hall itself is very dark, and it takes and experienced wedding photographer with good equipment to be able to photograph the ceremony without using flash (which is distracting during the vows).
Kerry and John had hired a lovely horse drawn carriage to take them the short distance from the Hunting Lodge to the hall, a great addition to the wedding and great for us wedding photographers to shoot – and the kids loved the horses!
Although we cover the whole of the North of the UK and Wales, we seemed to have photographed almost all our weddings recently in Cheshire and The Wirral – and another Cheshire wedding looms in a few days time!
In the meantime thank you to Kerry and John and the staff at Adlington Hall and The Hunting Lodge.
A few pictures from the wedding and a short video montage can be seen below.
