CHEADLE HOUSE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY – BONITA & SIMON
You’d be forgiven for not knowing this gorgeous old hotel was there, flanked by the A34, it’s easy to miss. Cheadle House was the setting for Bonita & Simon’s wedding and my job as a wedding photographer doesn’t get better than this. Cheadle House is just beautiful, located in Cheshire and only four miles from Manchester Airport. Cheadle House, Manchester is the perfect wedding venue. It’s close to the nightlife and shops of Manchester, while also providing opportunities to enjoy the countryside in Cheshire and the Lake District. This old Victorian House, is now a De Vere hotel and the setting for this magical wedding. I photographed Bonita & Simon almost two years ago at Quarry Bank Mill for a family shoot, so was over the moon when they invited me to capture their wedding day.
A WET SPRING WEDDING AT CHEADLE HOUSE
My day started a couple of miles away in Cheadle Hulme to see Bonita and the girls for their preparations before heading to Cheadle House . It was all very calm there with no signs of nerves. Even the non stop rain couldn’t faze Bonita. The wedding ceremony was held in a beautifully decorated room – with lovely natural light coming in from the windows making wedding photography here a breeze. Our plan was to complete the group shots after the vows and we managed to do these despite the rain. Our next plan was to take a walk around Cheadle House and use the lake and woodland trail for the bride and groom photos. Unfortunately the weather put paid to those plans and we had to to stay indoors. The DJ set included three renditions (it felt more like 20) of Baby Shark, one to get the kids going and boy were there a lot of children, 18 I believe and all having a whale of a time.
Being a wedding photographer at Cheadle House was a blast. I can’t wait to come back again to this lovely setting. What an amazing wedding Bonita and Simon had, thank you so much for having me there.
