Nunsmere Hall – Cheshire Wedding Venue
Ray and Joanne’s August wedding, at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire, was my first visit as a Nunsmere Hall Wedding Photographer.
Having never photographed a wedding at this Cheshire Wedding Venue before, I was excited at the prospect of adding Nunsmere Hall to the list of wedding venues I have worked at.
Built in around 1900 and situated in the heart of the Cheshire Countryside, Nunsmere Hall is also surrounded by a 60-acre lake, making this wedding venue the perfect country getaway for your big day.
Award winning Country House Hotel
Joanne arrived at the hall after having her hair done at L’Wren in Sandbach, Cheshire. She made her way into the award-winning country house hotel and upstairs, where Emily Goryl was on hand to make up all the members of the Bridal Party.
Ray, and his son Alex, who also played the part of Best Man superbly, were on the opposite side of the hotel in the Bridal Suite, sprucing themselves up in their suits from Platts.
Joanne didn’t seem to stop smiling all day. From the moment she walked through the door right though to the first dance, she was beaming, and looked wonderful in her wedding dress.
The wedding ceremony itself was full of smiles and laughter, before the new Mr & Mrs Patterson headed out onto the patio area at the side of the hall for drinks in the August Sunshine, before sneaking off for their first official portraits together as husband and wife.
Nunsmere Hall Lake
After both the bride and groom had delivered their speeches to their guests during the wedding breakfast, we went for a walk down through the woods to the enormous lake that surrounds Nunsmere. It’s a beautiful hidden area of the wedding venue and allows the bride and groom some peaceful time together to talk about the great fun that they have had throughout their wedding day.
Creative wedding photography
Once the evening gusts started to arrive, I set out looking around the venue for somewhere to try and create a couple of creative wedding photography portraits of the bride and groom, where I might be able to use some off camera flash techniques. After the first dance we used a couple of areas around the marquee and also in the trees at the back.
It was great fun working as a Nunsmere Hall Wedding Photographer and I certainly hope to be back soon. Listed below are just some of the suppliers involved in the day so, if you are planning a wedding, be sure to check them out.
