Styal Lodge Wedding Photography
Your Wedding at Styal Lodge
Styal Lodge Wedding Venue
I’ve been very lucky to have been invited to be a Styal Lodge wedding photographer three times so far and have thoroughly enjoyed each occasion. Of course, I love that I get to photograph weddings at lots of different venues, it’s great to have so much variety, however I also love to the opportunity to photograph several weddings at the same venue. It is so interesting to see how the weddings are so different. The choices each couple make and of course the variety of guests mean each one is unique. It’s a privilege to witness.
Styal Lodge is a beautiful wedding venue located in the peaceful village of Styal. It’s Cheshire country side location is perfect for such a special occasion and conveniently close to hotels, such as Stanneylands Hotel, so it’s ideal for family and friends who wish to have a bed for the night while being near to the venue.
When I first learn that a couple have chosen Styal Lodge, my first response is always in regard to it being a family run business. Without questions, this is always the first thing I say to my couples. The owners and indeed the two daughters who share the running of the business clearly have a great deal of pride for the venue and they give each of their couples their 100% attention and work their socks of to make sure the day runs perfectly. This is complimented immensely by the caterers they use. Two of which I have worked with are Top Table and Pink Pepper and are exceptional and play a huge role in the organisation and satisfaction of the day. Not least due to their incredible food!
Styal Lodge wedding venue is made exclusive to the couple and their family and friends. You won’t be bumping into another bride or another groom during your special day. One of my absolute favourite features of Styal Lodge is its light, airy and open feel. As a wedding photographer, Styal Lodge is up there as one of my favourite venues for a wedding. The ceremony is conducted in front of huge windows which allow the most incredible natural light into the ceremony room. Beautifully flattering and zero need for me to pull my flash out of the bag.
Amazing Features of Styal Lodge
Come rain or shine, Styal lodge makes for a perfect venue for your wedding. When the weather is kind, you and your guests can relax in the pretty landscapes garden, while enjoying drinks and canapes and on those days where the weather is typically British, there is bags of room inside the lodge for you and your guests to spread out and mingle with old friends and family.
If its capacity you are interested in, not have no fear. Styal Lodge wedding venue is licensed to hold Civil and Partnership ceremonies for up to 150 guests and is able to cater for additional numbers for your evening reception.
One of Styal Lodge’s standout features is its stunning bridal room, which overlooks the pretty garden. This is your own room to make use of for the entire day. It’s the perfect location for your morning preparations, equipped with a sitting area (with no less than three comfy sofas), TV, music system and a very luxurious en-suite. It also has a dressing table and has its own large windows, so perfect for getting ready in the morning and a dream for make-up artists, hairdressers and of course, wedding photographers. This room also makes for a nice comfy room for anyone wanting a little peace and quite later in the evening.
The icing on the Styal Lodge cake is the beautiful lake which is just a short golf buggy ride away from the venue. This is stunning spot for photographs and is also far enough away from the lodge, that you can sneak away from your guests for a few moments alone together, during what will have been a whirlwind of a day.
I thoroughly enjoy being a Styal Lodge wedding photographer and I very much look forward to working there again the near future. If you are planning your Styal Lodge wedding, please feel free to get in touch. I would love to capture your special day.
