Hilltop Barn Wedding Photography
I had a brilliant time shooting Colleen & Sam’s Hilltop Barn wedding photography at the weekend! Neil was back again second shooting and videoing footage ready for Colleen & Sam’s highlights film. We had a fabulous time exploring this new venue together (yes Neil, you do spot the best places for photos!) and celebrating the day with Colleen & Sam and their friends and family.
I had met Colleen & Sam a couple of months ago for their Manchester engagement shoot with their dog Wilma. They were such a happy couple to work with, I knew that their wedding would be a real treat to photograph (even if Wilma had to stay at home this time!) Colleen & Sam had done a fantastic job planning a relaxed and fun day that really suited their personalities.
Colourful Wedding Hilltop Barn
Colleen & Sam chose to have an outdoor ceremony in the beautiful garden of Hilltop Barn. It was an emotional moment as Colleen walked down the aisle with her dad (I spotted quite a few tears from bridesmaid Rachael, who apparently never cries!) The ceremony was conducted by celebrant Karen Hewitt and featured mentions of Sam & Colleen’s great loves: the dog and beer! There was even a beer blending ritual in which Colleen & Sam mixed two beers with different characteristics, symbolising them joining together.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed the views at Hilltop Barn with a craft beer in hand. They were also hoola hooping and playing limbo, before heading into the beautifully decorated rustic barn for the reception. Colleen & Sam decided to go for an informal food option of American barbecue and homemade cakes for their wedding breakfast, yum! The celebrations continued into the warm summer evening with music from The Kickstarts… and pizza!
Congratulations Colleen & Sam and thank you for having us along to celebrate with you!
Hilltop Barn Wedding Photographer
It was my first time being a Hilltop Barn wedding photographer on Saturday. We were blown away with how good this Stockport wedding venue is! Nestled in the Cheshire countryside in Poyton, Stockport, this rustic barn wedding venue has spectacular views over Manchester. It has plenty of great locations for your wedding photos too! Hilltop Barn is a DIY wedding venue and you can choose your own caterers and have your day your way. The barn wedding venue only does a few DIY weddings a year. I’d get in quick and book if I were you!
If you are planning to book Hilltop Barn for your wedding, I would love to hear from you. As you’ve probably guessed, I’m very keen to shoot at Hilltop Barn again! Please get in touch with me by filling out my contact form and telling me more about your plans.
