Loz & Carl’s Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding

Continuing on with the fantastic October weddings so far it was next time for Loz and Carl’s big day. And the location, just three minutes from home, at Sandhole Oak Barn – a favourite Cheshire wedding venue of mine. I met Loz through a mutual friend, Becki. I’d grown up with Becki, and actually filmed her wedding back in 2019. And it was down to Loz that I actually got booked as a surprise for Becki.

Loz and Carl booked me for the full day, including bridal preparations, so I made my way to Sandhole nice and early to get started. I always like to start the day with bridal preparations, as it really adds a nice opening to the finished films. Loz was super chilled, and was enjoying a pampering from Glam by Georgia. Carl, on the other hand, was getting ready in the Shepherd’s Hut.

I was excited to be working alongside Clare from Clara Lou Photography for the day. We’d worked together a couple of times over the years, and I knew we were in for a wonderful day together.

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Ceremony

The guests began to arrive, and were able to enjoy some time outside in the sunshine. Carl greeted the guests as they were arriving. And before long it was time for us all to head in for the ceremony. Carl took his spot at the front, and nervously awaited his bride.

Loz was escorted into the ceremony by a very proud father of the bride. The ceremony was beautiful, with a gorgeous reading by Loz’s bridesmaid. It was so wonderful to see Loz and Carl tie the knot. After the formalities were over Loz and Carl made their way out of the barn and into the sunshine. 

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Reception

It’s always so nice when the sun is out during the drinks reception. It gives guests the freedom to be indoors or outdoors, whatever they fancy. Although today I think the guests would’ve been outdoors even if it was raining, thanks to Loz and Carl hiring a Prosecco van from Simply Prosecco. It’s possible that some guests enjoyed the van a little too much, but we won’t say anymore than that. 

After everyone had relaxed the next important task was portraits. Family portraits and of course couples portraits. Clare and I whisked the couple off around the grounds of Sandhole Oak Barn. We were able to get some gorgeous couples portraits using the variety of backdrops that Sandhole offers. Before long it was time to bring Loz and Carl back to their guests for the speeches and wedding breakfast.

Loz and Carl had an absolutely wonderful day, and I was so honoured to share it with them. I hope to bump into them at more weddings in the future, and I wish them an amazing life together as Mr and Mrs.
