Heaton House Farm Wedding Photography


Multi-award-winning Heaton House Farm is a fantastic wedding venue.  A family-run working farm in the beautiful Cheshire countryside is supported by an experienced team who offers endless options that allow you to have your dream wedding with exclusive use exactly how you always dreamt.  

The original farmhouse, standing proud above Rushton Spencer itself, was built back in 1824 and is still a working farm today.  Over the years the farm and buildings have been transformed into a stunning wedding venue which offers luxury accommodation.

This stunning award-winning Cheshire wedding venue is nestled on the hillside of a working farm right on the border between Cheshire and Staffordshire, surrounded by the stunning scenery of three counties. The beautiful countryside of Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire can be seen from here and are simply breathtaking.

We are so proud to be one of Heaton House Farms recommended wedding photographers.  After photographing over 50 weddings at this amazing wedding venue, we feel we know this stunning North West wedding venue inside out in all seasons and all weather conditions.

The incredible views offer endless photographic opportunities both during the day and into the evening.  The famous sycamore tree at Heaton House Farm adds to the stunning landscape; offering the most incredible backdrop to some of the most amazing sunsets we have ever had the pleasure of photographing.

Choosing a wedding venue with such an amazing space both inside and outside presents you with so many options for your wedding. Brides and Grooms can provide garden games (we have had cricket matches before now) to entertain guests, or even a bouncy castle for the children (or adults). And with your own exclusive water gardens for the bride and grooms private photographs, you really are spoilt for choice.
