Hello everyone, welcome to the blog post for Angela & James’s wedding photography at Shrigley Hall Hotel in Cheshire. Although I’m told one shouldn’t start with an apology, I’m sorry for neglecting to blog these photos for so long. August has been a record month here at Tim Hensel Photography, clocking up 7 weddings in total (next one this afternoon), which has been awesome but completely mental. I’ll be quiet now and let the wedding photos tell the story of the day.

I love this shot of the bride & groom, I think it captures the relaxed essence of their wedding day.

Angela & James got married at Mellor Church, then on to Shrigley Hall Hotel in Cheshire, with a stop on the way to photograph James’s cat in their Rolls Royce 🙂

A couple of the formal group wedding photographs, we took about 10 different ones of these.

Fun with family members after the wedding

We had a fantastic day filled with laughter and merriment, perfect for my relaxed documentary style of wedding photography (I find the term reportage a little self-important). The sunshine helped too – someone must have bribed the weathermen – but it’s the happy people in lovely locations that made this wedding what it was.

Many thanks to all involved, and congratulations to Angela & James.

Angela’s beautiful dress was from Julie at Village Bride in Marple, Cheshire.

If you’re getting married in Cheshire – or if you know someone who is – please contact me and I’ll be very pleased to chat with you about your wedding photography at Shrigley Hall (or, indeed, elsewhere).

Thanks for looking.


P.S. I’d also like to share the review that Angela left for me on my Facebook page

“Little delayed but on behalf of me and my husband, I can’t say enough how great Tim was on our wedding day, all the guests loved him and nothing was too much for Tim in making our day special. Amazing photographs and service from start to finish! I would highly highly recommend. Even the after service with help in making something special for my family has been amazing-again nothing too much for Tim! I think people are missing out on a top rated photographer who goes that extra mile and makes you feel comfortable throughout the whole process! You will NOT find another photographer like this for such a reasonable price ( too low in my opinion)!Thank you Tim Hensel!”

So that’s nice, isn’t it 🙂
