Abbeywood Estate Wedding Photography
This was my first time photographing at Abbeywood Estate in Delamere, and what an amazing place it is! Located just outside Chester City Centre, Abbeywood’s vast immaculate gardens, stunning views over Cheshire, amazing staff and HUGE orangery where your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception are held, are just a few reasons why Abbeywood Estate is the perfect wedding venue. When I photographed David and Laura’s big day, it was a little overcast for parts, but during the evening we had the most beautiful sunset in Cheshire, for some romantic bride and groom pictures.
I started my day at Laura’s parents house for bridal prep images. Everyone was on hand to make sure the day went super smoothly including Laura’s beautiful bridesmaids. Laura was calm right throughout bridal prep…Perhaps a little too calm as we did arrive 20 minutes late for the ceremony. When I arrived at Abbeywood to tell David we were slightly behind, he didn’t seem so surprised as Laura was previously given the nickname by her nieces and nephews “Aunty Late Laura”.
After the emotional ceremony in the orangery, it was straight onto the photographs, starting with a group photo and confetti shot! Wow what a lot of confetti!! Look out for the picture. Whilst I was photographing family formal shots in Abbeywood’s stunning gardens, guests were keeping themselves entertained by pimping their Prosecco, bouncing on space-hoppers, playing cricket, oh and giving Ringo (Laura and David’s gorgeous pooch) lots of fusses! Ringo also made his way into the photographs too 🙂
Here are a selection of some of my favourite photos from Laura and David’s wedding day at Abbeywood Estate, Delamere.
