Hannah and Luke’s wedding at the Oak Tree of Peover was a beautiful day in the loveliest of venues with their nearest and dearest family and friends.  It was an honour to be a part of such an intimate occasion as their wedding photographer.

Photographing preparations nearby

The day started at Moss Farm Bed & Breakfast, located just down the road from the Oak Tree of Peover.  It’s a perfect venue for getting ready as the beautiful, luxury barns and renovated dairy buildings provide ample accommodation for plenty of people.  Our bride and groom today were able to enjoy their wedding preparations on the same site, but safely hidden from each other’s excited gaze.  This made my job as their wedding photographer nice and convenient, able to easily pop between the two as the morning progressed.

Hannah, along with her mum and grandmother, enjoyed the expert hair and makeup stylings of Louise Hall.  Some bridal prep sessions can be quite hectic.  This one however, was a picture of serenity.  Our bridal party were in great spirits yet completely calm and collected.  It was a lovely, chilled start to the day.  When Poppies of Salford delivered the gorgeous wildflower bouquet, we knew it would soon be time for the main event.

Over in the other building, and with just a little bit of help from the in-laws, Luke was busy with his tweed suit and wildflower buttonholes. Before long, the boys were set for a quick portrait in the glorious Cheshire sunshine and then it was off to the ceremony.  Split the Difference Campers supplied the awesome VW Campervan that transported all of our VIPs to the wedding venue, just a short ride away.

Cheshire wedding perfection

Nestled in the rural delights of the Cheshire Countryside, just a stone’s throw from Knutsford, lies the Oak Tree of Peover.  It was the first time for me shooting a wedding at this venue but I loved it for so many reasons, and I can’t wait to return there.  

Hannah could not hide her joy as she walked up the aisle, with the sun streaming into the ceremony room.  Our happy couple were truly loving this perfect moment, the culmination at last of so much planning and waiting.  Once the vows were exchanged and the ceremony complete, the rest of the day was spent enjoying the lovely spring weather at this terrific venue.  The main meal was provided by This Little Piggy Went, and evening treats by Pizza Principles, both local Cheshire suppliers.  Cheshire Wedding DJs supplied the soundtrack to the evening entertainment as everyone danced into the night.   Hannah and Luke’s perfect wedding at this fabulous venue was great fun to photograph and a real privilege to attend.

Why weddings at the Oak Tree of Peover are so great to photograph

The Oak Tree of Peover is one of the finest barn wedding venues in the country.  Situated in 165 acres of landscaped perfection, this contemporary venue provides a magical, tranquil space for weddings and civil ceremonies of all shapes and sizes.  The friendly and dedicated staff made us all feel so welcome and at ease all day long.  The high standards of professionalism in fact completely matched the high standards of the venue itself both inside and out.  The elegant architecture makes for great pictures, be they from the far side of the manicured gardens or within the stunning rooms themselves.  The main ceremony room is flooded with natural light, a wedding photographer’s dream, thanks to high ceilings and lots of glass.  Held up by beautiful oak beams, this versatile space looked simply elegant for Hannah and Luke’s big day.  Now with an additional ceremony room at their disposal, equally stunning with wood and glass, The Oak Tree of Peover is able to accommodate any wedding plans that you may have.  Today, for example, the wedding breakfast was served in the new space, without the need to move everybody out of the ceremony room while it was being ‘turned around’.  Factors like this make a big difference in planning, and photographing, a wedding.  In any case, Hannah and Luke were truly blessed with stunning sunshine on their special day, so their happy guests were able to enjoy the outside spaces at their leisure as well. As the sun began to set, casting its final, golden light over this romantic venue, we nipped out amongst the greenery to grab a few portraits.  I generally like to take a documentary approach to wedding photography, so these couple’s sessions are usually quick and fun: a short break from celebrating with guests, just a few minutes out and away from the crowd.  As dusk turned to night, that exquisite ceremony room became the perfect space for dancing too.  So, after a short while shooting the evening fun, I bade farewell to Hannah and Luke and left them partying away in this wonderful venue.
