Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography

What an excellent day!! To shoot Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography is a real privilege as it’s such a gorgeous location, however, to be part of Laura & Matt’s wedding day took it to a whole new level.

I first arrived with Laura who was getting ready in the Granary surrounded by her bridesmaids and family. The atmosphere was calm but with a sense of surrealism that the day had arrived but didn’t feel real quite yet. Matt soon arrived and I caught up with him beside the lake for some shots with his best men before they went to prepare and I returned to Laura.

The girls then began to get ready and Laura was expertly zipped into her gorgeous dress by her sister before we had time to pause for some portraits. Once everyone was ready, the wedding party made the short walk over to the main barn for the ceremony.

After the couple enjoyed their ceremony, they exited the barn as husband and wife to be congratulated by their family and friends. During this time we paused for some family groups and then stole the couple away for a few portraits around this amazing location. Laura & Matt then returned to the party just in time for their wedding breakfast in the main barn which was beautifully decorated by Floral Events.

Before the evening began, we captured a few more creative portraits in the evening sun before returning to the party. The couple then cut their delicious cake surrounded by their friends before taking to the dance floor as husband and wife. I then stepped back and captured everyone having a great time, chatting, relaxing and dancing aplenty courtesy of the excellent Madison Band.

So what an excellent way to spend a sunny Sunday and huge congratulations to Laura & Matt. Thanks so much for having me as your photographer!

About Sandhole Oak Barn

Built to a traditional rural design, the Oak Barn is rustic, light and airy, and allows you and your guests to flow effortlessly from ceremony to reception drinks and the wedding breakfast. In the summer, light floods through the full-length windows, giving extensive views across the lake and the rolling Cheshire countryside, or you can enjoy a romantic outdoor wedding next to the lake under the Clock Tower. Those choosing a winter wedding can experience the warmth of the mellow oak beams elegantly lit by the wrought iron chandeliers, watch the sunset over the lake whilst enjoying your wedding breakfast, with the reassuring convenience of having your entire wedding under one roof.
