An Abbeywood Estate Wedding in Delamere Forest 

Thank you for your interest in Abbeywood Estate wedding photography. I’m so pleased to share a few images from the wedding of Jon & Daynah.

Abbeywood Estate is a gorgeous Cheshire wedding venue tucked away on the outskirts of Delamere Forest.

It’s a lovely country home situated in picturesque countryside. Couples getting married often choose Abbeywood for the light & airy indoor space and the stunning gardens outside. The gardens overlook the Utkinton Hills and provide a beautiful setting for wedding guests to explore. Abbeywood Estate is one of my favourite Northwest wedding venues to photograph.

Winter Wedding Photography in Cheshire

A UK wedding in February can be a challenge. The weather is often cold and wet. You have to work twice as hard as at a summer wedding. It’s a challenge I look forward to. Luckily, Abbeywood Estate is perfect in any weather. The elegant glasshouse is especially suitable if the weather isn’t dry enough for an outdoor ceremony. Natural light floods the whole space and is great for photography.

The bride prepared for her wedding at the top of the Abbeywood Estate manor itself, with a whole suite of luxury rooms for her & her bridal party. It can be easier to work in a large space for bridal preparations. It really helps to keep everything relaxed. I love the photographs of Daynah’s sister getting over-excited while helping her into her fabulous wedding dress.

Daynah is of Greek heritage, and there were little flourishes of Greek influence throughout the wedding- I was chuffed to be treated to a traditional meze during the wedding breakfast. Rustic bread, oil & olives are a winner for me.

Creative Photography at Abbeywood Estate

The sun sets early at winter weddings, so I used off-camera flash (and a spare sandwich bag for cheap & cheerful waterproofing) to create some cool night-time portraits of the bride & groom.

Everyone had a great day, with the evening reception still to come. I photographed the first dance and the happy dancefloor chaos that followed. The glasshouse is transformed at night-time, with a dance floor created under the dark sky visible through glass that just a few hours earlier had let in so much light.

I hope you enjoy this small selection of photographs from this Abbeywood Estate wedding. Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
