Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding

Congratulations to Gayle and Richie who were married today at Sandhole Oak Barn in Congleton, Cheshire. Roadworks held up the Bride ! The registrars had another wedding booked after Gayle’s and at one point I thought we weren’t going to have a wedding, but fortunately Gayle arrived with minutes to spare ! Looking at the clock in the photo’s I think Gayle was about 35 minutes late…which was the record for this year !

So if you are getting married at Sandhole Oak Barn, have a look out for the traffic news on your wedding day !

A sneak preview of some of my favourite shots of the day !

The outside of the Barn, fortunately no rain, a little windy but we were happy enough with that ! From here you can just see the magnificent lake on the left.

Gayle and Richie’s wedding rings, beautiful, very similar to mine and Vicky’s [my wife !}

Richie getting a helping hand, or two ! Sandhole Oak Barn has some lovely guest bedrooms and I’d certainly recommend booking one if you are coming to a wedding here, saves the trip home !

I think Richie was getting just a ‘little’ bit anxious at this point, 1o minutes late is a Brides prerogative, but even the most confident Groom will start to worry when we hit 30 minutes late !

Fortunately they managed to get through the traffic jams, with enough time to keep the registrars happy ! [Though I had to give up my time for any portraits beforehand as the registrars wanted Gayle in straight away.}

One proud Dad and Daughter, and a stunning Bride !

The fun bit, well not for some ;-) The speeches always give wedding photographers ideal opportunites to take some great candids, natural, relaxed, unposed, perfect ! Just how we like it!

Sandhole Oak Barn is one of the larger wedding venues in Cheshire, it allows me to pop a nice long lens on my camera, go stand 100 feet away and pick off shots like this all day long!

Funnily enough, living in Manchester, on the odd occasion there is a little bit of a football theme that sneaks in, this wedding had  a little bit of Red !
