With its glorious setting in the stunning Vale of Clwyd, the unique Vale Country Club is an amazing quirky venue.

The large  function room sits up to 220 guests and 300 for an evening reception.
Its spacious and flows throught to a bar area.
There is a beautiful bridal room too with stunning modern shower room en-suite

Cheshire Wedding Venues – Inglewood Manor

Cheshire Wedding Venues – Inglewood Manor

Inglewood Manor Wedding Venue

Inglewood Manor Cheshire Venue

We have several favourite country house venues that we love to shoot at and the Cheshire wedding venue of Inglewood Manor is right up there in our top 3.
Inglewood Manor is a restored Edwardian Manor House with 29 bedrooms and several function suites.  Inglewood Manor is now part of luxury Boutique Hotels Group,
being bought in summer 2018, which also encompasses Peckforton Castle and Nunsmere Hall Hotel.  These are also fabulous Cheshire wedding venues we enjoy shooting at.

Rooms and Grounds of Inglewood Manor

It’s always a joy to document a wedding here, options with the rooms and the gardens are extensive with woodland, gates and ponds and arbours. Always something different to shoot.
We have shot weddings in the Executive Suite (the dark panelled room), the Burton Suite downstairs, (now with its new bi-fold doors) and the white room on left of the reception area.
The garden area at the rear of the Burton Suite has been opened out to make the best of the views across the estate, so now the view from this room is lighter and more expansive.
The extent of the gardens lend themselves to options for other wedding ceremony sites – especially with new laws coming out, considering legally binding ceremonies outdoors.
Plus at a recent wedding, it was interesting to hear of the plans the new owners have for this fab Cheshire wedding venue – watch this space!

Good topic of conversation with fellow dining guests.
Such a memorable relaxed evening and perfect for Sandy as a cake fan!

These events recommenced again in September. – we have since been to a street fusion BBQ meal and an Italian Evening
Previous events also included afternoon tea, an Indian meal and a polish menu – ooh hope they do that one again
Their ethos is good home cooking in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

They utilise much of their own grown food from their vegetable garden.
They have their own delicious honey, apple juice and Mere Brook cider and home made shortbread is one of their specialities.

The Christmas event in December is already a sell out  ..why not try the event in January 2019 which will be a Burns night!

Cheshire Wedding Venue: Trafford Hall Rustic Shoot

Cheshire Wedding Venue: Trafford Hall Rustic Shoot

Trafford Hall Rustic Wedding Shoot

Rustic Cheshire Georgian Venue

We were blessed to work with amazing creative wedding professionals on this Trafford Hall Rustic Wedding shoot.
We just love collaborating with each other, networking and supporting each other with social media campaigns and images.
So just recently we met up at the delightful Trafford Hall , a wonderful Georgian House with on-site accommodation for guests wishing to stay over.
This charming rustic venue can be decorated as you wish and enjoys delightful woodland, lawns and sunken garden areas for umpteen photo opportunities for your wedding photography.  As photographers, we love coming here.  The staff are really welcoming too and will happily advise on plans for your day.

For this shoot the decor was supplied by Sweetpea & Ivy They love this venue and have dressed Trafford Hall many times.  Always love their rustic styling, perfect for this venue.  This time they provided an outdoor ceremony area  and a fabulous barrel table laden with cakes and sweets created by Bella’s Cake Pantry
The delicious cakes and cake pops were from Sue’s watercolour and silver leaf collection. Scrumptious!

Indoor Decor

Place cards and menus by Pink Sherbet Stationery perfectly matched the colour scheme on the tables set up by Sweetpea and Ivy and Wirral Table and Chair Hire The tables were adorned with evergreen leaves and candles in a long wooden container, creating a warm cosy touch.  Little cut glass vases with peach roses added the touch of colour to the table. The backs of the chairs were adorned with soft pastel swags, tied in the middle with a complimentary satin ribbon. The wooden floors and giant light up LOVE letters either side of the fireplace completed the elegant rustic ook.

Pixsmiths Creative Photograph had a great time photographing the amazing Katey Elizabeth around the venue in a gorgeous dress supplied by The Wirral Wedding House  The dress is a hand-finished bohemian style beaded gown from Romantica of Devon.
Suited Katey so well, she made a fabulous Boho Bride!

Cheshire venue Trafford Hall

sunken gardens Trafford Hall

If Trafford Hall is the venue for your style of a rustic elegant wedding the staff there would love to hear from you – watch out for their open days
We love photographing weddings at Trafford Hall – we have previously shot a summer Trafford Hall Wedding and would love to be back here soon so please ask for our wedding brochure and we will get back to you soon!

Update 2020: It’s a real shame that this gorgeous venue had to close its doors due to government charity funding cuts.
Ther is an ongoing drive to get Trafford Hall reopened.  Donations have already been received.
