Saddleworth Hotel Wedding Photography
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to photograph Charlotte and Tim’s wedding at the glamorous Saddleworth Hotel in Oldham and what a day it was! Overlooking the castleshaw valley the views from the hotel are simply stunning and the beautiful gardens offer plenty for both guests to mingle outside and beautiful photographs.
The Wedding Ceremony at St Thomas Church
The day started with Tim at the lovely St Thomas Church in Newhey where I arrived to meet him and the groomsmen along with a few eager guests who were excited for the day ahead and who can blame them! This church has actually got to be one of my favourites as it’s gorgeous windows let in lot’s of light in all the right places. It’s a really lovely church. Charlotte looked quite nervous as she walked down the aisle and I think Tim was trying his best to held his nerves as he waited for Charlotte to arrive. As soon as the ceremony began though it was obvious that these two were madly in love as the nerves settled.
Drinks reception at The Saddleworth Hotel
Following the ceremony at the church it was time to head to the stunning Saddleworth Hotel for the drinks reception. The Saddleworth Hotel is one of the leading venues in the area and it’s east to see why. Charlotte and Tim set off from the church in the ever lovely Rolls-Royce and somehow I did manage to arrive before them to catch some photographs of the arrival (Let’s say it was my magic). Once all the guests had arrived and Tim and Charlotte were inside it was the perfect time for me to get candid photographs of everyone enjoying themselves. Capturing the candid moments at a wedding is one of the parts I enjoy most.
After letting Tim and Charlotte spend some important time with friends and family we headed out for some family portraits and a quick walk in the gardens with just the two of them. It’s always nice for couples to have a short time to themselves just to breath and take time away from all the post ceremony madness.
Speeches and The Wedding Breakfast
After the drinks reception, guests were called in for the wedding breakfast which was seriously good. Speeches started before the food was served and had many of the guests either laughing or in tears, the two best men gave one of the funniest speeches I have heard, it was really brilliant.
This wedding was so lovely from start to finish from Charlotte’s beautiful dress to the love shown by family and friends throughout the day.
I loved this Saddleworth Hotel wedding so, so much. If you are getting married and on the look out for a Saddleworth Hotel Wedding Photographer then please get in touch! I’d love to hear about your plans.
