Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography – Tori & Joe
This has been an incredible year of personality-filled, fun weddings in the most amazing places. Tori & Joe’s rustic barn wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire was no exception.
Both Tori & Joe got ready in separate suites at Sandhole Oak Barn, and so we met them first thing in the morning to start capturing the preparations.
Tori had rented Joe a Triumph Stag, so off we went for a drive, me squashed into the diminutive back seat, down the lanes that surround this beautiful venue. Joe wanted to include a drive-by-present-dropoff, so a lot of revs later, we dropped off the gifts for Tori and went back to the room for a whisky or two.
The flowers were provided by Frog Flowers, based in the northern quarter in Manchester. They did a magnificent job of making the beautiful spaces inside the barn full of country charm and rustic personality. They used beautiful colour palettes that we couldn’t stop photographing, and their work really brought a whole new dimension to Tori & Joe’s wedding.
The ceremony was beautiful, and had personal readings from family friends. Afterwards, there was craft beer (Beavertown brewery, a personal favourite of Mr F) and prosecco, congratulations and laughter.
We spotted some beautiful golden light emerging, and so took Tori & Now off for some portraits by the lake. We had a great time photographing as these two enjoyed some alone time as the new Mr & Mrs, and then headed back to the party. After a Mr & Mrs game, speeches started as the band set up for the evening party.
We asked Tori & Joe for some of their wedding planning tips and advice. And a little insight into their wedding planning process - this is what they had to share with you:
“We chose Sandhole Oak Barn as we wanted a really relaxed, garden party 'outdoorsy' feel at our wedding. Also, we loved that if the weather is nice then we can get married outside. However the inside of the venue is also beautiful so we feel like either would be perfect for the ceremony. We have loved asking all of our friends and family to be involved, and seeing how excited they all are to share our big day with us”
It was such a pleasure to be involved with your wedding day, and we can't imagine a more fitting setting than Sandhole Oak Barn. Enjoy your blog!
