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 encompassses 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 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 teh new owners have for this fab Cheshire wedding venue – watch this space!

What a gorgeous Inglewood Manor Wedding day! It’s always a delight to be an Inglewood Manor wedding photographer, it really is one of our favourite venues. We have photographed here throughout the seasons. So we were delighted when Em and Josh asked us to cover their wedding day. Josh was no stranger to us as we had covered his sisters wedding a few years ago so It was really enjoyable being with the families again.
Ah and what a day Em and Josh had for their church wedding at St Peter’s lower Heswall and reception at Inglewood Manor too. Relaxed bridal preps at Em’s parental home – and a gorgeous home too! Plenty of space for all the getting ready and details. Dad and bride really quite emotional when the reveal happened, tugged at our heart strings! Think the bridesmaids and mum had quite a moment too! A bit of rain on arrival at St Peter’s in a beautiful yellow Rolls Royce – such a sunny yellow.
Ceremony St Peters Lower Heswall
The ceremony was uplifting and joyous with the worship songs and message from their own church pastor. So may humorous moments to capture – not least the cheering and uplifting of arms when pronounced man and wife. Soon it was out to the sunshine and a light breeze to aid the natural veil shots! Smiles all round as the confetti was rained on them before they left for the wedding breakfast at Inglewood Manor
Inglewood Manor Wedding Reception
Em is an English teacher and favourite literature provided the theme at Inglewood Manor with the table settings. The wording on the stunning cake and favourite quotes strung up on the stair railings outside added to teh theme. The speeches were really entertaining – especially when Em was asked 3 memory questions, had the guests in stitches!
Evening entertainment at Inglewood Manor Wedding
The weather was warm enough for friends to enjoy the popular giant Jenga garden game before the evening took over with fun photo-booth Their band Stanley Park had the dance floor rocking from the off. Em and Josh’s friends really enjoy a great party and it certainly was! Thank you both for such an amazing day to capture for you Really hope you enjoy these highlights. Thank you for all the giggles and joy shared. much love and Happiness Sandy & Dave xx
Before guests took their seat they were invited to take a shot – think that helped with the fun atmosphere and certainly a novel form of wedding favours – certainly went down well!

Sophie and Graham have been together for several years and this was a long waited for day. A day of sunshine and full of emotion for their wedding at Inglewood Manor. Bridal preparations were in the beautiful bridal suite and being on same site as ceremony Sandy could stay to get details up to the last minute. Sophie looked stunning in her dress and hair was immaculate from Christopher Terrence Millea Sophie made her way down to her waiting groom on the arms of her brother (he was quite overcome when he saw his beautiful sister!) for a beautiful ceremony, good tasty food as always at Inglewood Manor and impeccable service, and entertaining speeches followed on
Fab entertainment with Mike the Magician and Tequila Band to kick off the evening fun meant a great party spirit ensued for the rest of the evening with congas and Sophie dancing on guest shoulders in her satin pj’s – one of our most memorable party pics to date!
Congratulations Sophie and Graham, we loved being with you on your day and wish you every happiness for the future. Sandy and Dave xx Here just a few highlights of the many from the day to enjoy and to show how beautiful weddings at Inglewood Manor are.

Inglewood Manor Wedding Photography: Peter & Katherine
This wonderful wedding was so well thought out and planned – I think they are going to patent the excel spread sheet! – and really happy for Kathe and Peter it was the day they dreamed of – things done a bit differently but just the way they wanted it to and it was a real pleasure to a be a part of this day. A love match on Wimbledon final day!
I must admit I was a little nervous of the timings at first, but no worries with Dan and Sam (former Pixsmiths couple) as best man and chief bridesmaid they were such a blessing to Kath and Pete, ever attentive to make sure things were going smoothly and stress free and also to us to make sure people were there for the groups and keeping times on track.
A real surprise at the bridal preps was seeing Rose, the hairdresser, who had made my wedding dress many years ago!
A Sunday wedding – Kath is communications officer at West Kirby United reformed – so a real celebration for their morning service!
Kath made her entrance after the first reading – her stunning bridal dress in white and blue looked amazing from above – almost tudoresque! The bridesmaids dresses were in the same colour blue to match.
Wonderful to see the church packed and the worship band and singing so good. Cake cutting ceremony and reception in the church hall afterwards and then a confetti exit and on to Inglewood Manor – always a fabulous venue – and thank you again to the staff for looking after us. Dan’s speech and groom survival kit was a highlight of the wedding breakfast entertainment too, so entertaining!
A glorious sunny day so time for some prop shots outside before the evening kicked off with the Irish dancing – so much fun and gets everyone involved. A fantastic day all round. Many congratulations to Peter and Kath, wishing them much happiness and blessings in the future.
