Our Fusion Package has rapidly become the most popular option for our brides and grooms, and Amanda and Ian’s choice for their wedding photography at Styal Lodge in Cheshire. The package includes some filming as well as photography, and we produce a short film on the day using a combination of still images and video clips.
For Amanda and Ian’s wedding Stuart began the day working with our friend and colleague Nick (Sarah taking over from Nick after the ceremony). We started the day at Styal Lodge, where Amanda and the girls were getting ready in the Bridal Room. One of the great attractions of this wedding venue is this fantastic spacious room, where the bride and her bridesmaids can get ready. The room is very well lit, with views of the lovely gardens, so it’s ideal for makeup artists to do their work. It’s also right next to the ceremony room, and makes a very convenient extra bit of private space available through the rest of the day and evening.
The spacious ceremony room at Styal Lodge can accommodate up to 150 people, but also works really well for smaller numbers. The dining area is separate so there’s no problem with having to rush to setup for the meal afterwards.
Amanda and Ian left the ceremony room amid a shower of confetti. The private gardens at Styal Lodge are perfect for relaxing and enjoying some liquid refreshments after the ceremony. They also make a perfect backdrop for group photos.
We took a trip in a golf cart for the couple photographs at the lake. It’s a lovely spot not too far from the lodge, but having the cart certainly saved the Manolo Blahniks.
The tables had been beautifully set for the wedding breakfast. We loved the selection of gin bottles.

With the Fusion package, we produce the short film above on the day, and show it to the happy couple and all their guests in the evening. It’s a great way to get the party started, and we bring our screen, projector and PA system, so everybody gets a great view.

Styal Lodge is one of the most popular and best run purpose built wedding venues in Cheshire. We would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a place to host your big day. Another nearby venue we enjoy is Owen House Wedding Barn, please check out Hannah and Mark’s winter wedding.
