Owen House Wedding Barn
Photographing weddings is always a pleasure and when close friends ask you to photograph their wedding it is an honour as well as a pleasure. With the met office assuring me of sunshine throughout I made the short journey along the A50 to the Cottons Hotel where Natalie and her bridesmaids had enjoyed her final night of freedom to photograph the bridal preparations.
As expected the calm and organised approach Natalie had shown throughout the build up to the wedding meant the atmosphere in the room was relaxed and the girls really were enjoying the start of what would be a spectacular day. With fizz flowing freely there were plenty of smiles and natural laughs which always makes my job much easier.
It was then on to Owen House Wedding Barn. Set in the Cheshire countryside of Moberley this unique and quirky venue oozes personality which is testament to the hard work of Dan and Vanessa and their family. The ceremony room was elegant and characteristic with a wide selection of woods and bench seating all in keeping with the rustic barn feel. The ceremony was just perfect capturing the closeness between the couple.
Prossecco and bottle beers were free flowing in the gardens and whilst guests enjoyed a variety of hand crafted canapes. Award winning acoustic duo Rock my Reception kept guests thoroughly entertained throughout the drinks reception whilst back inside the barn final preparations were underway to invite guests back inside for a timeless tradition – afternoon tea.
Whilst the sun set on what had been an awesome afternoon the party continued into the evening with a sumptuous BBQ and a great party DJ and the final set from Rock my Reception.
I had an absolute blast being an Owen House wedding Barn photographer for the day and cannot wait to return in the future
