Thornton Manor Wedding Photographer

Being based in Manchester, it’s easy for me to get to gorgeous Cheshire wedding venues like this one.  So it was a real pleasure this time being the Thornton Manor Wedding Photographer alongside Hervé Gillet and videographer Ross Hart-Edwards.

Cheshire wedding venue

Thornton Manor is a stunning country house and a firm favourite of happy couples looking to tie the knot in exclusive, luxurious surrounds.  Good choice Rachael & Stuart – and thanks for having me along to help shoot your special day in Cheshire.

Chasing the light

We’ve had such amazing, hot weather this summer which is great for outdoor photography.  However, with some rain in the air on this day, I was only too pleased to stay indoors for as long as we did.  The grandeur of Thornton Manor and its glorious windows provides for some brilliant opportunities for creative photography.  And I just loved capturing some beautiful moments indoors. Actually the rain wasn’t so serious, and in any case, it cleared up for just enough time for us to enjoy a perfect outdoor ceremony.  Rachael, her ten bridesmaids and three flower girls looked a picture as they filed in to adoring looks from the gathered guests.

Documentary wedding photographer

This fun-loving pair provided their happy guests with a photo booth, sweet counter, chocolate fountain, roulette wheel, bouncy castle, face painting, you name it!  And to cap it all off, a bouncing dance floor under the opulence of Thornton Manor’s grandest rooms.  I loved being able to shoot this wedding in a documentary style.

Massive congratulations to Rachael and Stuart. Thanks again for choosing me to shoot your day. Below is a small selection of some of my favourite images – also compiled into a short slideshow above.
