Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photography – Jon & Daynah

Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photo

Abbeywood Estate wedding photography with our bride & groom, the lovely Jon & Daynah.

Jon & Daynah were married at the Abbeywood Estate, a gorgeous Cheshire wedding venue tucked away on the outskirts of Delamere forest.

The beautiful gardens overlook the Utkinton Hills and provided a stunning setting for the celebrations.

A February wedding with our British climate was always going to be a challenge, but one I was massively looking forward to. Low-light & rain are perfect companions for creative wedding photography.

The bride & groom chose to have their ceremony in the Estate’s elegant glasshouse, surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Daynah prepared for the wedding at the very top of the Abbeywood Estate manor itself, with a whole suite of luxury rooms just for her & her bridal party. It’s much easier to work in a large space & really helped keep the preparations relaxed. Daynah was ably assisted into her fabulous wedding dress by her extremely excited sister/bridesmaid!

While the girls lorded it (ladied it?) in the manor house, Jon & his groomsmen were relegated to the servant’s quarters. Only joking, they had a very nice room too! Jon was looking particularly dapper in his tweed waistcoat. It’s always nice to get some photos of the gents pre-ceremony.

The glasshouse at Abbeywood Estate is a brilliant ceremony room to photograph. The clue is in the name; glass everywhere! Lots of bright light and one happy photographer.

Abbeywood Estate is perfect for putting your own stamp on the wedding day, they have a great set-up able to cater for the most intimate wedding to the most extravagant.

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. I’m not saying I LOVE Greek food, but when I die, slather me in oil and bury me in olives 🙂

Creative Photography in Winter

Being a winter wedding, the sun set relatively quickly (we were plunged into darkness by about 4pm) but that’s no excuse to slack-off; I decided to use some off-camera flash with radio triggers (and a spare sandwich bag for a cheap but cheerful waterproof covering) to create some cool night-time portraits of the bride & groom. This is quite difficult once the sun sets (bear in mind, in the middle of the forest, night means DARK) but by the light of a smartphone and the fantastic focusing ability of the Nikon D750, we smashed it (the portraits, not the phone). Phew!

A really great day was had by all, with the evening reception still to come. I photographed the first dance and the dancefloor mayhem that followed, before grabbing a welcome butty and heading off into the night.

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