The Oak Tree of Peover Wedding Photography – Abbey & Mike
To say that the Oak Tree of Peover is a wonderful place would really be doing it a disservice. Perfect for laid-back weddings, enough personality to stand on its own merit as a venue. Yet, enough of a blank canvas to make every wedding totally unique. There’s not many places like it, anywhere.
The Oak Tree of Peover Wedding Photography | Surrounded by Cheshire countryside and away on it’s own down a long private drive, it’s the perfect country escape. Years ago, the site it’s on used to be a golf course. So, it’s secluded and quiet, and an immaculately designed and maintained spot in the gorgeous Cheshire countryside.
Abbey was getting ready in the room above the beautiful timber and glass main halls. The light coming through the sky lights created beautiful highlights and shadows. So Katie went up to get involved in the bridal morning whilst James waited for Mike and best man Mikey to arrive and complete the setup for the day.
Planning a wedding can be a little overwhelming. So, we asked Abbey & Mike for some tips to share with you. These two did such an awesome job of planning. We just couldn’t resist sharing their tips!
“We would recommend using Pinterest to pin ideas. Also following the Instagram tag for your venue, the venue itself and all of your suppliers. This lets you get an idea of what people are doing. Limit yourself to a couple of hours each session, otherwise it becomes and work and a chore!
However, spend serious time deciding a photographer. They’ll capture the memories when you look back on when you’re old and grey, and the little bits too. The little touches are what make it yours.”
After Abbey & Mike’s ceremony and a couple of drinks with their guests, we took them out for a little alone time. And to make some portraits with them of course! There are so many areas of this beautiful place to explore. Loads of gorgeous trees, some water that catches the evening light. Dodging the rain and following the pretty light, we loved the look of the verandah overlooking the lake. It looked stunning as the light fell right on the side of the building as the sun began to drop. Then we headed to the woodland surrounding the drive, and a couple of gorgeous spots in between.
After the wedding breakfast, it was party time. Abbey & Mike’s first dance backed by The Daddy O’s really kicked things off in style. Seeing an opportunity and another break in the rain, we took Abbey & Mike out for a couple of extra portraits to round off the evening.
