Situated in the gorgeous countryside of Congleton, Sandhole Oak Barn is one of Cheshire’s most popular wedding venues. Engaged couples looking for a laid back rustic barn wedding need look no further. Sandhole ticks all of the boxes! At Shane Webber Photography we specialise bright and natural photography, the perfect complement to a Sandhole Oak Barn wedding. With this stunning venue being just 30 minutes away from our base in Cheshire, we are often commissioned to photograph weddings at the barn. Some of our favourite wedding pictures have been captured at Sandhole.

Because of our natural wedding photography style, our work is incredibly popular with couples that are set to have their wedding in Congleton. Sandhole Oak Barn’s best feature has to be the spectacular lake. With incredible grounds surrounding the lake there’s always plenty of colours to work with. Colour and scenery like this is a wedding photographers dream! Hence why we love working at Sandhole Oak Barn so much. The lake is a pretty dramatic backdrop for wedding photos in the day and into the evening, it’s particularly stunning at sunset.

Rustic Weddings In The Barn

Sandhole Oak Barn is a stunning location for a rustic wedding. This wedding theme has become increasingly popular in recent years because of the natural and relaxed approach. Most couples want to enjoy their wedding day without it being too formal, a barn wedding is great for this approach. Newlyweds can be carefree without compromising on the aesthetic. Another benefit to barn weddings, particularly ceremonies, is the natural light. Often churches present difficulties for wedding photographers. They can be very dark and have small windows. At Sandhole Oak Barn the windows allow natural light to flood in which will benefit the photography greatly.

Making The Most Of Your Wedding Day

Our relaxed approach to photography has been perfected so that you can get the maximum enjoyment out of your wedding day. So many photographers will take the bride and groom away from guests for 1 hour or longer. Because of this, you’ll often miss the most important part of your wedding – spending time with you family and friends. Some of our best Sandhole Oak Barn wedding pictures are of natural moments during the drinks reception. After a 30 minute ceremony inside the oak barn, you’ll be itching to hug your friends and family with excitement. Afterwards will we take some relaxed portraits of the bride and groom. Often we will wait for the sun to start setting and, if you’re lucky, your Sandhole Oak Barn wedding photography will feature golden light.

Full day coverage

You only get married once. So why settle for anything less than the best? We firmly believe in providing the best photography services to our clients. This means going above and beyond wherever possible. Because of this ethos, our full day package covers everything as standard. Including photography coverage of your wedding reception and party! All good weddings end with dancing. So why do most photographers leave straight after the first dance? We love capturing natural moments and people enjoying themselves. Sandhole Oak Barn looks amazing at night time. We love to take advantage of the venue after sunset to capture stunning wedding portraits. Examples of our favourite portraits at night can be found in our featured weddings. A night time portrait is a great way to conclude your wedding album. Making use of our extensive bag of camera equipment, we use Canon flashes and video lights to create unique lighting situations. Again, looking for bright colours, we will often make use of the fairy lights at Sandhole Oak Barn.

Summer Weddings At Sandhole

Summer is undoubtedly the most popular time to get married at Sandhole Oak Barn. We have photographed many summer weddings at the barn. The best thing about summer weddings at Sandhole Oak Barn is that sunset isn’t until late. Often the sun will set between 8 pm and 10 pm in the height of summer. Because the wedding breakfast usually finishes around 7 pm, after dinner is a great time to head back out for some more pictures. Wedding guests are normally more relaxed after a meal and a few glasses of wine. Everyone has settled in and have got used to having a wedding photographer around. Therefore the natural moments will be happening regularly as guests get in the mood to party. Also, Sandhole Oak Barn gets a fantastic sunset.

Photographing Year Round

Sandhole Oak Barn is also a wonderful venue for winter weddings. Winter wedding photography creates some challenges in terms of weather and lack of daylight. Therefore it’s crucial to book a photographer with lots of experience. Using only the best professional camera gear, we are able to capture high quality images in low light situations without using flash. Prime lenses let more light in than standard zoom lenses, whilst they also create beautiful bokeh. Avoiding the use of flash also enables us to be discreet and capture natural photos. As with all wedding photography, the best pictures are made by great moments – not sunshine. So if you’re getting married in the winter and looking for a Sandhole Oak Barn wedding photographer, you can contact us to request a price list. We’d love to photograph your special day!
