Arley Hall // Lauren & Chris

Arley hall is a stunning Cheshire wedding venue and hosted Lauran & Chris’ blessing in June. They celebrated in the Crook barn, the main hall for their wedding breakfast and then Olympia for the dancing.

Describe your wedding in three words

Personal, relaxed and fun

Why you chose the date of wedding (did it have any meaning?)

Anniversary of our 4 years married (we a small ceremony before)

Anything about how you met/proposal story

We met on the first day of University 8 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. After 4 years, we got engaged and moved to America

Your inspiration/style/aspirations for the day

We wanted a non-traditional, relaxed day to celebrate our marriage with those closest to us! Arley Hall was a beautiful venue that we knew we wanted from the second we arrived to view it, the venue almost dictated the style as it didn’t need a lot to make it look beautiful.

Memorable/emotional/funny moment on the day

Memorable – First look; It was a really cute moment together and we wanted as much time with our friends and family after the ceremony

Emotional – The Ceremony; Our best friend conducted the service and we also had personal vows

Funny – Confetti; My niece fired the confetti canon right into my face!

How did you discover me and why you chose me to photograph the day

You were recommended to us by the venue and from the moment I saw your Instagram and website, I knew your style was everything we wanted. Neither of us are very posy or comfortable in front of a camera, so your relaxed, documentary style was perfect!

Wedding song?

Love Someone, Lukas Graham

Any advice for couples planning their wedding?

Make the day everything you want, you will never please everyone so don’t try!

Are you going on a honeymoon?

We plan on having a minimoon back in America and going somewhere special next year!

Anything else….

A massive thank you for making our day feel super relaxed and easy! Not only is your work amazing, but you are a wonderful person who goes above and beyond to make sure the day is perfect
