Thornton Manor Wedding – Cheshire Wedding Photographer
I’ve been itching to share this gorgeous Thornton Manor wedding with you. Kate fell in love with Thornton Manor in Cheshire whilst wedding venue hunting with a friend. The thing was – she hadn’t met Gary at that time! Thankfully, a little while later the magic that is internet dating brought them together. Kate almost didn’t go on the first date – imagine! But thankfully fate played a hand, the couple hit it off and the rest as they say is history. After Gary proposed in Milan (romantic!!!!) the couple headed back to Thornton Manor and thankfully Gary loved it just as much as Kate.
Getting Ready at Thornton Manor
The wedding day arrived and we headed to Thornton to meet Kate and her bridesmaids for prep. The weather was definitely being very English! One moment glorious sunshine and the next torrential rain! This lovely pair didn’t let it get stand in the way of having a great day! Thankfully the interior of Thornton is equally as beautiful as the exterior so we were spoiled for choice for pictures. Holding your wedding at Thornton Manor means you get the whole building to yourselves – so many different rooms and spaces for guests to enjoy. The ceremony room feels quite snug and intimate, after the ceremony guests can enjoy drinks in the grand hallway or sneak off for some peace and quiet in the sitting room or explore the entrance hallway. It’s all so beautiful!
Wedding Portraits at Thornton Manor
After the ceremony Kate and Gary had a chance to have a drink and chat with guests whilst we waited for the rain for the clear. As soon as it did we headed outdoors to enjoy the vast grounds at Thornton Manor. These two were such naturals in front of the camera and we got some great, relaxed portraits of just the two of them before heading back to the party. And what a great party it was. All the guests were on the dance floor enjoying themselves. We topped off the night with some perfect sunset photos in the grounds of Thornton Manor.
Huge congratulations to Kate and Gary on their wedding day – thank you for inviting me to be a part of it. It was lovely to meet you all and your lovely friends and family.
