Hayley and Andy chose the very unique Styal Lodge for their Cheshire wedding. I’ve worked at Styal Lodge a few times times and it’s great for couples to have such fantastic venues to celebrate at.
Hayley began her day at home with friends and family. The morning was awash with makeup, champagne, gifts and excitement! This was a fantastic time for me to blend into the background and use my natural reportage style. In what seemed like no time at all, they were ready to leave and make their way to Styal Lodge for the main event…
As usual, the guys had arrived ahead of time and were doing a fantastic job of hosting on this warm spring afternoon. The guests were delighted to be invited to such an important event and were busy catching up on news right up until Hayley and her bridesmaids pulled up outside.
The important bit!
The girls made ready to walk down the aisle to meet Andy, and, with some tears, began their walk. Hayley followed and planted a quick kiss when they finally met. The ceremony was soon over with an exchange of rings and a few tears. Official duties performed, they left the venue for the warm sunshine outside.
Before we took their couple photographs, there was plenty of time to mingle with guests and bask in their joy at the union. Congratulations finished, they chatted and caught up with each others lives.
Style Lodge has a fantastic jetty which is a quick golf cat journey away and it makes a superb location for some beautiful and artistic couple photos. They both looked incredibly happy to be officially together at last and enjoying their time with their friends and family. The weather was very kind too, which was the icing on the (wedding) cake!
And so the day ends…
Back at the venue, it was time for the wedding breakfast, but just beforehand there was the little task of entrance and cake cutting, which they performed with vigour. After the dinner, a fantastically funny set of speeches followed, with the typical groom embarrassment – always fun to see!
Finally, the day made way to the evening and they enjoyed a first dance before a final surprise – fireworks provided as a wedding present by one of the guests!
Amazing job guys and huge congratulations! It was a pleasure to join you for your wedding.
See the rest!
