Stock Farm, Cheshire Wedding Photography-Tom and Ann-Marie

Stock Farm has transformed a working stables into a wild and dreamy wedding venue in the heart of Cheshire’s own Tatton Estate. It’s converted barn, galore and wildflower meadows for outdoor lovers, and country gardens perfect for an al fresco ceremony make impressive backdrop to your wedding day. The main converted barn is huge and has bags of ambience thanks to the festoons adorning the barn ceiling. There’s a grass garden behind the barn, picnic benches in front of it. I believe another barn opposite main one is being turned into the bar. You can really make it unique and the owners are so laid back they say they pretty much let their brides and grooms do what they want. Therefore Stock Farm is one of my top Cheshire venues for wedding photography.

Tom & Anne-Marie Cheshire Wedding Day

Anne-Marie and Tom’s wedding was just fabulous! Mix of tradition in rustic and relaxed atmosphere. Their ceremony took place at beautiful St Vincent De Paul Roman Catholic Church in Altrincham. Ann-Marie’s Mom walked her proudly down the aisle. The Bride wore a personalised Maggie Sottero dress by Blush Boutique Weddings and looked unbelievably glamorous and of course Tom looked super handsome too. The day was all about family, friends, love and happiness. Guests had come from far and wide – Anne-Marie’s mum’s side of the family are Maltese and so had all travelled from Malta and Tom is from Cornwall and so his family and friends had travelled up from there. I believe there was even a guest from Australia!

I Loved that first to speak was bride herself! Why should brides not have the privilege of speaking in front of all of the guests to tell stories, offer thanks and praise their new husband just because of “tradition”?! Anne-Marie’s speech was fabulous – as was her mum’s, who’s speech was up next. Brilliant. Of course Tom’s speech was lovely too and as ever, the groom’s speech had me welling up many times. They were lucky enough to then get 2 best men’s speeches, which had everyone laughing in hysterics.

Natural & Documentary Wedding Photography

It was one of these cool, laid back and super relaxed wedding days. Very much matching my natural, reportage and documentary Cheshire wedding photography style. To see read more about my style and see my portfolio click HERE. Our little portrait session took us 10 minutes, with zero posing, just fun and laughter and my camera obviously. I was only there for half day which to be honest, I was absolutely gutted about. But I still managed to get snap of their first dance. I just love capturing full story of wedding day from bridal preparation until party is over. See my favourite photography  package HERE.

I had fantastic day and can not wait to return to Stock Farm Wedding Venue.
