I’m finally getting around to updating the blog! You can expect lots of posts to catch up with all the weddings I’ve shot over the last year! Steph and Darren actually got married back in September 2021 and have just welcomed baby Harriet into the world. It was such a special pleasure to be with this lovely couple on their wedding day. A fabulous day that went so perfectly and was filled with love and joy. Scroll down to see plenty of Macdonald Portal Golf and Spa Resort wedding photography.
Darren and Steph chose the Macdonald Portal hotel in Cheshire to host their wedding. They loved that they could have the whole day in one location and their guests could relax and enjoy being taken care of. Steph and her bridesmaids had hair and makeup done in their hotel suite overlooking the gardens while family and friends slowly gathered in the bar downstairs.
Steph is hugely creative and made lots of elements of the wedding herself from the invitations to the paperflowers, signage and confetti cones. I don’t know how she managed to finish it all in time but it all looked spectacular. I loved the wedding welcome sign featuring an image from their engagement shoot at Trentham Gardens.
The Macdonald Portal Hotel
The Macdonald Portal Golf and Spa Resort have a huge choice of options when it comes to planning the day of your dreams. There are two event suites each with its own bar area and an outdoor ceremony option too. With the huge golf course just outside there are lots of opportunities for stunning photographs at a number of locations. The staff were incredible and took us out a couple of times on the golf buggies to enjoy the views of the Cheshire countryside from around the golf course. It was a bright and breezy day perfect for capturing Steph’s flowing dress in the wind.
There were heartfelt speeches with gifts from Steph’s Dad and lots of funny moments. Steph and Darren snuck back out to the golf course to enjoy a fabulous sunset and a few quiet moments to themselves. The reception then flowed into the evening entertainment with endless dancing and a casino table to entertain guests.
