A stunning wedding at Colshaw Hall set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside
As busy Cheshire wedding photographers we get to work at some amazing wedding venues. This is certainly always the case when we return to photograph a wedding at Colshaw Hall. Rachel and Matt chose the perfect venue for their wedding day.
We had never met Rachel and Matt prior to them booking with us. As a result of looking through our images in our online gallery and reading our reviews, they decided to book us straight away before their date was taken. It’s always so lovely when we get bookings this way.
What Matt & Rachel had to say
Thank you for sharing our special day with us. We can’t thank you enough for everything that you did on our wedding day. The photos are fantastic and as a result we will look at them for years to come. Many thanks Mr & Mrs Peden
The morning of the wedding
We arrived early so we could capture Rachel and her bridesmaids as she started her bridal preparations. This took place in The Lodge at Colshaw before moving over to the main hall. Hair and makeup was created by those clever people at Absolutely Hair and Make-up. Rachel had her bridal party on hand to help her into her beautiful dress that gave her the most exquisite silhouette in all of our portrait shots.
We also caught up with Matt before the ceremony. Along with his groomsmen, he was looking resplendent in a three piece suit (we love the waistcoats by the way!)
Bridesmaids looked so elegant in navy and the sweet flower girl absolutely rocked her white dress with complimentary navy detail.
The wedding ceremony
The ceremony was held in Colshaw Hall’s pretty stables building. With its limestone floors and oak beams, it is a charming room that gave us the most perfect light when photographing the ceremony. Flowers were sophisticated and elegant in white and green and were provided by the very talented Red Floral Architecture. Teamed with clear chandeliers and candles in vases the look was so charming, rustic and beautiful. Take a look!
Whilst Rachel’s and Matt’s guests enjoyed a drinks reception we quickly whisked the happy couple away to take their portrait shots set around the amazing interiors and grounds of Colshaw Hall. One of the many things we love about shooting weddings at Colshaw Hall are the stunning grounds.
A little something different
Now we like a quirk at weddings and it’s rare for us to come across something so different but ‘The Snuff Zone’ really introduced something interesting and fun and everyone loved it!
After a lovely wedding reception that saw some delicious food provided by Barretts Events Caterers, there were some very well received speeches and the cutting of the most elegant wedding cake. Rachel, Matt and their guests continued to enjoy full exclusivity of Colshaw Hall.
Now for some of the guests with a full meal inside them and a glass or two of something, they could be forgiven for feeling a little sleepy but this was clearly not the case for some of Rachel’s and Matt’s guests who decided to have a high jump competition on Colshaw Hall’s lawn!
And into the evening
Evening entertainment started with a romantic first dance. Rachel’s and Matt’s family and friends didn’t need much coaxing to join them and before long there was some serious cutting of shapes on the dancefloor!
A perfect end to a perfect day
It’s always good to end with a wow shot and boy did we get one at Rachel and Matt’s wedding. Take a look! The image at the beginning of our blog of the two of them embracing on the bridge, under the tree, over the lake and in the moonlight is so beautiful and felt like the perfect image to close the story of their beautiful wedding day.

Congratulations to Rachel and Matt. We hope our images will allow you to relive your amazing day again and again for many years to come.
