This luxurious and exclusive wedding venue is perfectly situated in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. The grade 2 listed Hall within the private and peaceful 3000 acre estate was built in 1903 and restored to the luxurious wedding venue it is today by the Irlam family.

It’s such a pleasure to photograph so many gorgeous weddings at this stunning wedding venue. As soon as you enter via the elegant driveway you can appreciate why it’s the perfect venue choice for so many bride and grooms. The stylish setting and magnificent venue is guaranteed not only to host the wedding of your dreams but also the perfect backdrop for wedding photographs.

Why I love weddings at Colshaw Hall

Irlam Lodge

The lodge is situated as you enter the private estate. It’s a very peaceful location to begin your wedding preparations. The contemporary location is spacious enough for all the girls to get ready together on the morning of your wedding day. Having so much room makes you feel relaxed enabling me to document the complete story of your wedding day in a very natural way.

Full exclusivity of this spectacular venue also means you have the opportunity to start your wedding day in the house itself. The very stylish rooms with their light and simplistic decor provide a very elegant feel. It’s a wedding photographers dream to have the opportunity to photograph in such an idyllic setting.

The Stables

As you have exclusive use of Colshaw Hall on your wedding day you also have a number of choices for the location of your dream wedding ceremony. The Stables ceremony room is the most elegant place to tie the knot. The light and spacious room and clean marble flooring is not only the perfect setting to say I DO but is great for photography too. Alternatively you can have an outdoor ceremony in the gardens of Colshaw Hall for a truly romantic affair. What’s more as all these places are within minutes walk from one another you and all your guests can walk to your reception together.

The Grounds

The estate of Colshaw Hall has so many places to create stunning wedding imagery. The options are endless. The beautiful lake offers the perfect backdrop for your wedding portraits. The immaculate gardens are so romantic to walk through. It’s so nice on your wedding day to take time out as newlyweds and enjoy each others company amongst all the hustle. The estate is so gorgeous you’ll want to get lost with one another.

My favourite place is definitely the Japanese garden. The sun sets right over the mini lake there. It’s only minutes from the walled garden where your guests are enjoying themselves but it’s truly magical. The light is unreal during golden hour of light creating stunning wedding photographs that you’ll probably want to hang on your wall.

The Peel Suite

The Peel Suite is a very stylish room that transports you into another world within the Hall. The very contemporary room has been well equipped for you to have complete control over your wedding reception. In the day the floor to ceiling windows allow the light to flood through your reception room for your wedding breakfast and speeches.

In the evening the room is creativity lit with extremely modern lighting. It feels like a completely different place but yet creates the perfect party atmosphere to get all your wedding guests in the mood. There is enough room for your guests to sit back and relax but more importantly there is plenty of space for a nicely sized dance floor to bust some serious moves.
