Since Bramall Hall was reopened last year after for some restoration work, I had the venue on my work wish list. This Tudor style manor with timber frames has some parts which are centuries old, dating back to the Middle Ages. Bramall Hall was one of the first venues I visited when I first arrived in England and it made an impression on me.
Catherine and Adam planned their wedding in a short time. When they realised that 2020 was a leap year, they couldn’t miss the opportunity to make their day extra special. There’s only one 29th February every 4 years after all but they told me, instead of waiting this long to celebrate their anniversary, they would celebrate it over two days – 28th February and 1st March. I’m all up for making celebrations last as long as possible!
I started the day with the bride and her party at the Colour Room Salon where the Prosecco was flowing. I then made my way to St Mary’s church to catch Adam and his best man getting ready. Adam is also the church warden and wanted to make sure that everything was spotless and all the candles lit before everything started.
After the ceremony, the Stockport Event team welcomed the guests at Bramall Hall with a glass of fizz. Meanwhile the bride and groom followed me into the park for a walk and some relaxed portrait photos. They also wanted to get some shots inside the venue to explore the Victorian kitchens and the impressive dining room upstairs. There was so much history to soak up and the features were a great backdrop for the portraits.
Evening party in the main hall
Once the DJ and the singer were the set up, the evening do kicked off in the main hall which gave the party an atmospheric setting, complete with stained glass and chandeliers. A big congratulations to Catherine and Adam. Thank you for choosing me as your wedding photographer.
