Colshaw Hall Wedding Photographer // Sophie & Lee

As a Colshaw Hall wedding photographer I am spoiled by this incredible venue and it’s surroundings. I really love photographing weddings at Colshaw Hall, it makes my job easy. Especially on a sunny day with a stunning couple, I really couldn’t ask for more. Sophie and Lee’s wedding was a wedding photographer’s dream gig! The day started for me with Sophie and her bridesmaids while they had their hair and make up done by Carly B. Lee, the groom, was also getting ready at Colshaw so I popped over to see him and his groomsmen getting ready and drinking whiskey! Colshaw Hall also has a dedicated wedding chapel so it was a short walk for the wedding party to the ceremony.

Jewish Ceremony at Colshaw Hall

As Lee is Jewish the ceremony was carried out by the family’s Rabbi and it was something new to me as a Colshaw Hall wedding photographer.  The various traditions made the ceremony all the more special although I think Lee was a bit embarrassed when it took him three attempts to smash the glass at the end of the ceremony!  After the the register of marriages was signed Sophie and Lee headed outside into a sea of confetti and then made their way over to Colshaw Hall’s walled garden for drinks, music and canapes.

How many best men?

To be honest I lost count of how many best men Lee had at the wedding but they all did a speech covering Lee’s entire life, I feel like I know everything about him now!  Each groomsmen delivered a speech but all were different and the guests never tired.  Lee finished off the proceedings with a funny and heartfelt speech which left Sophie and most of the guests in tears.  The speeches finished as the sun was setting so we headed out into the grounds to catch the last moments of sun before the evening celebrations began.  Lee and Sophie performed a fantastic first dance before the guestds joined them on the dancefloor to dance the night away and end a perfect day.  It really was incredible.  Congratualtions Sophie and Lee and thanks for asking me to be your Colshaw Hall wedding photographer. x

For photographers

I shot Sophie and Lee’s wedding using two Canon 5D mark 3’s and mainly the Sigma 35mm ART and Canon 85mm 1.8.  I also used the Canon 16-35mm 2.8 and Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 although these lenses make up only a small selection of the photos.
