Delamere Manor Wedding Photography
Delamere Manor is a stunning wedding venue set within 100 acres of Cheshire countryside. Most people will know the manor in relation to it’s previous owner, Gary Barlow. Having changed hands the home moved has also into the wedding industry. Couples can spend their entire wedding day at the beautiful property. The perfect mix of classic and contemporary makes the manor one of the leading venues in Cheshire. Featuring rolling countryside views, a 6 acre lake and period architecture Delamere Manor wedding photos are perfection.
Offered on an excuse use basis each wedding is given the utmost care and attention. The team at Delamere Manor pride themselves of giving each and every wedding complete focus. This approach allows the wedding dreams of couples to be delivered seamlessly each and every time. An exclusive use policy is also music to wedding photographers ears. Often photographs are taken from a window or at a distance from the scene itself. At Delamere Manor wedding photographers can rest assured that they will not intrude on another event.
In recent years more and more wedding venues host ceremonies on site. Travel between the bridal preparation space to the church to the venue can be a pain. Spending time traveling on the wedding day takes away from the day itself. Wedding take so much planning and are then over in a flash. Having each part of the day at the same venue allows for more time spent enjoying the wedding. In our experience couples want to be with their friends and family, making the most of the wonderful day they have planned.
Delamere Manor is a fantastic seasonal wedding venue. The mix of contemporary spaces and traditional features allow for gorgeous wedding pictures in the summer and winter. Modern additions with large windows let in lots of natural light. In the winter months there is a limit to how much time can be spent outdoors taking photos. Therefore winter wedding venues must have light spaces indoors. At Delamere Manor there are so many beautiful places for photos inside as well as out. The drawing room is a great choice for a winter’s drinks reception.
Ceremonies at Delamere Manor are often held outdoors. We love outdoor ceremonies, they allow for gorgeous photography. If the weather permits an outdoor wedding ceremony is a great option. Natural light is at it’s best outside. Often churches can be very dark. Low light makes taking photographs challenging – this is not an issue with an outdoor ceremony. There are many locations within the Delamere Manor estate to have an al fresco ceremony. The Garden Folly is particularly beautiful, boasting views across the lake. There is also cover for the couple when they say their wedding vows. Having the newlyweds positioned int the shade assures there will be no harsh lighting from bright sun impacting the photos. An experienced wedding photographer will be able to make the most of the light whether it’s bright or low.
Star lit courtyard
If an outdoor ceremony isn’t possible then the star lit courtyard is an alternative option. The contemporary glass fronted courtyard is a huge asset to Delamere Manor. This space is perfect for days where the weather is changeable. In cases of rain the retractable roof can be instated to ensure coverage of the couple and their guests. Huge windows allow natural light to flood the space. Even with the roof closed wedding photographs will be stunning.
Private night club
The feature that the team at Delamere Manor are most proud of is their state of the art private night club. Couples choosing this venue will be taking their party to the next level. Once the space was home to Gary Barlow’s recording studio. Now it’s a fully kitted out night club, ready for your choice of DJ. With chic monochrome styling this is a unique place to party the night away. With a background in photographing Ibiza’s best parties Shane loves to capture the evening party. At Shane Webber Photography we know how important it is to tell the whole story of the day. From the teary eyed first look right to everyone dancing to their favourite song – each moment is significant.
Night time at Delamere Manor
At night Delamere Manor is transformed. Strategically placed uplighting casts beautiful golden light across the building and gardens. Depending on the time of year sunset can be quite late into the evening. To ensure that couples will never miss out on stunning night time images Shane Webber Photography offers full day coverage as standard. Some photographers will leave straight after the first dance. Shane loves to capture the evening party and if the couple can spare the time a beautiful night time portrait. The front of Delamere Manor is the perfect setting to capture this photograph.
