Sandhole Oak Barn is a beautiful oak barn set overlooking a lake in the Cheshire countryside. It was the perfect setting for this laid-back wedding with some incredible hand-made touches.

Hannah and Trevor’s excitement for their own day was infectious and I couldn’t wait to film their day, as well as meet their dog Dora! When I arrived I couldn’t help but have a nosey at the guys setting up the barn with all the lovely paper pom poms and THAT cake table…wow! But my job was to capture the bride getting ready so I headed over to one of the small barns and watched Hannah get transformed in to a stunning bride by make-up artist Sarah Green. Hannah and Trevors Wedding1 Hannah and Trevors Wedding2 Hannah and Trevors Wedding3 The boys were soon getting in to their wedding attire (and the Groom showed off his amazing gold shoes) and having photos taken outside in the sunshine. The girls made their way to another part of the farm to get Hannah in to her amazing wedding dress (I just loved the detailing in the top, just gorgeous). The bride was greeted by her two page boys before she made the walk down the aisle to her handsome groom and soon they were pronounced husband and wife!

We then made our way back to get a few family group shots as well as capturing the Up! style balloon release (where guests wrote a message on a luggage tag, tied it to the balloon and they were all released together which I thought was a lovely idea). Hannah and Trevors Wedding17 Hannah and Trevors Wedding18 Hannah and Trevors Wedding20 Hannah and Trevors Wedding21 Speeches were before the wedding breakfast and the bride and groom did a joint one before speaking individually to thank their families and each other. The best man then did a brilliant speech that involved a bit of singing with a little bit of help from their friends… Hannah and Trevors Wedding22 Hannah and Trevors Wedding23 Hannah and Trevors Wedding24 Hannah and Trevors Wedding25 Hannah and Trevors Wedding26 Guests enjoyed the home-made cake table before heading out on to the terrace to watch a group of air balloons pass over the lake. A caricaturist and balloon modeller kept the children (and some adults) entertained while the quiz sheets were marked by the groom! We were then treated to a romantic first dance before their band, The Warning Tones, really kicked off the evening. Hannah and Trevors Wedding27 Hannah and Trevors Wedding2watermarked

I had an amazing day filming Hannah and Trevor’s wedding and I am so pleased they picked me to capture their day. When I sent them their Highlights film they were still enjoying their honeymoon so I thought I’d have to be patient to await a response but I didn’t have to wait long…

“Aaah!! We love it sooo much!!!!! I’ve been excitedly waiting for your email! And we’re just packing up our stuff to come home tomorrow and there it was! It’s amazing, we are so so happy with it, can’t stop watching it! Absolutely made up that you chose that song it’s one of our favourites! Can’t wait for the full length film now!! Hope you are well. Married life is treating us well thank you, had a fab honeymoon, gone too fast though! Thanks again, you’ve done a fab job and we excitedly await the feature length!! Hannah & Trev 😀 ”
