Colshaw Hall wedding photography | Holly and Will’s winter wedding

Finally I’ve got round to this, the full post from my last wedding of 2014 – Holly and Will’s rather fabulous day at Colshaw Hall.

Honestly, this day was a masterclass in how to create a fantastic wedding.  Styled to perfection, Holly created a chic and glamorous day to die for.  The secret was simplicity – a minimal black and white colour palette, with the guys in tuxes and the girls in black lace; beautifully simple, elegant white flowers; gloriously stylish clear perspex and candles in the ceremony and dining rooms. A solid black limousine car service, classic. No distractions, no clutter, everything clean, simple and chic.

Throw in some crisp, clear winter weather (and a fine evening sunset which gave us that oh-so-beautiful-winter-light to play with late on), and of course the great bonus of winter days – a dark, dark night in which we could play with lights and make some striking portraits later on.


Here it is, in all its glory.

    Great set of images Martin. That first shot is a lovely shot of the couple.

      Thanks for the comment Anurag. It had to be done really – some elegant black and white portraits to match the elegance of the day and the minimal colour theme. Glad you like it!
