Dream weddings at Delamere
Offered on an exclusive 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 also host ceremonies on site. Travel between the bridal preparation space to the church to the venue can be a pain. Spending time travelling 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 drinks reception. Experienced wedding photographers will know how best to utilise the available light for the best pictures at Delamere.
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 alfresco 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.

The Manor’s Starlit courtyard
With more and more couples turning to civil rather than religious ceremonies, choosing a venue with great locations to get married is so important. Delamere is fantastic for ceremonies and different options for couples to choose from. If an outdoor ceremony isn’t possible then the starlit 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. 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.
