What is it like photographing a wedding at Merrydale Manor?
We visit a lot of wedding venues, and nothing really compares to Merrydale Manor, it is simply stunning. Since the owners run the more established wedding venue, Colshaw hall, next door, they certainly know what they are doing. With help from the most amazing wedding planner, Kirsty, the day will run faultlessly. Photographing the wedding details, dress, flowers etc, in the very highly maintained bridal suite makes for some amazing well lit photos from the natural light coming in from the window. The ceremony room, again well lit using natural light falling onto the bride and groom, makes the photos look incredible. Outside for portraits, you are spoilt for choice, you have the gardens behind the house, the lake and jetty, the mansion front and much more, no matter where you go the photos will be amazing. The wedding breakfast room with that spectacular chandelier is always great for photos, using the light from the chandelier to light the bridal party, the owners have certainly put some thought into this from a photographers point of view. At night the lake it lit up and surrounded by trees, makes for some great photos using flash lighting. We cannot recommend this venue enough for your wedding day.
