Wedding photos at Dorfold Hall near Nantwich

Wedding photos at Dorfold Hall near Nantwich – we’ve been looking forward to photographing here for months now – such a stunning venue and lovely owners to boot! Get this….it is a Jacobean house built in 1616!! AND the estate has been in the same family since 1603 – an amazing achievement! In the 1800’s they grew their own pineapples in heated glasshouses and during the second world war, the house was home to Liverpudlian evacuees and American & Canadian troops.

We first visited a couple of years ago and had the best time shooting in and around the house, just as it was becoming a wedding venue: CLICK HERE

Bridal preparations

We joined Rachel, her bridesmaids and various parents upstairs in the main house for all their preps. Hair and makeup were underway and everyone was looking great! We took the chance to make the most of the house while we had it – it really is a stunning building. Tom soon arrived, with his bright pink socks and headed over to the Coach House to greet the guests. The florists, Ewer Roberts had done such an amazing job!! A stunning Moon Gate as a backdrop for the ceremony!!

The wedding ceremony in The Coach House

A lovely ceremony followed, with readings of The Lovely Dinosaur and one from Captian Correlli’s Mandolin, then over to the main house for a big group photo, confetti, drinks and really pretty canapés from Cath Scates Catering. It was pretty hot and bright so we left a lot of the photos till later, but we did take the chance to take all the bridal party away to make the most of the long driveway with the house in the background.

The wedding breakfast in The Sperry Tent

Love this Sperry Tent from Top Marques, such a beautiful structure with translucent sides and pretty poles inside and flags on the roof! Again the florists had exceeded expectations with a gorgeous overhead structure on top table and floral centre pieces on all the guest tables – great job guys!!  The food looked amazing from the caterer, a really pretty oriental duck salad with prawn cracker ribbons, beef 2 ways and then posh lemon meringue for dessert – YUM! Father of the bride speech was very touching – Rachel is obviously very special to them, and the best man’s speech really made me chuckle – Tom must have been so ‘wild’ when he was younger! 😂

The evening reception

We went for a little walk with Rachel & Tom after dinner for a few photos and then it was time to cut the cake and dance the night away! We had a great time with everyone, special thanks to Candice and Ceri for making the day run so well and to Rachel’s mum for being so lovely! Tom & Rachel are a lovely couple and we had a great day at Dorfold Hall!!

We had such a great time with you guys and LOVED being part of your day!
