Oh hey there! I’ve been a bit slack on the old blogging front recently. A busy wedding season plus a house move and growing a baby has meant that social media has taken a backseat to actually shooting, editing and delivering weddings (the fun part of our job!). However I’m now back on the marketing train and ready to show off all the, well, the rather bloody marvellous, weddings days I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of.
Earlier this year I joined Laura and Jonathan for their wedding at the fab Owen House Wedding Barn in Mobberley, Cheshire. I’d met up with them at the beginning of 2019 for a pre-wedding shoot on a cold, crisp morning for a stroll along the Worsley canals. We chatted about their plans for their wedding day and they had a laugh together as I snapped away. Jonathan had told me he hated having his photo taken but he hid it well!
I started the day at Laura’s family home, the atmosphere was fab. The girls had the tunes on, the fizz was flowing and everyone was looking forward to the celebrations ahead. I think the only person with any visible nerves was Laura’s Dad who kept escaping to run various errands!
A quick shout out here needs to go to Laura’s gran who had made Laura’s dress for her. She’s got some skills!
After a beautiful ceremony at Laura’s family church is was time to head over to their wedding reception at Owen House.
Weddings at Owen House Wedding Barn
I know from past weddings there that Owen House is a pretty special place to hold a wedding. A bespoke venue set on a working, family run farm, it offers a unique experience right in the heart of Cheshire.
The renovated barn is warm and rustic in feel. Large windows mean that it’s bright and airy, whatever the weather (photographers LOVE big old windows!) and the fact it’s a ‘blank canvas’ means couples can really make the most of the space and put their own stamp on it.
One of my favourite things about Owen House is that the owners have really thought about everything to make it perfect for a wedding day – rain or shine. There are countless textured walls or hay bales piled on top of each other which make for fantastic backdrops. Pockets of light stream in and old machinery is dotted around. It all looks brilliant.
Jonathan is from Ireland and he’d pre-warned me that that could mean a LOT of speeches, what it really meant was a lot of good natured ribbing for him as his Dad and his brother both stood up to talk about his childhood. Laura wasn’t off the hook either as her Dad’s speech was hilarious!
All the formalities done it was time for them to party the night away, the dancefloor was packed and after a good old boogie I left everyone to it.
Laura, Jonathan, what a day! If you’re reading this and planning your own Owen House Barn wedding then I would love to hear from you.
