Dove Barn Wedding Photography – Natalie + Chris’s Day
We always love returning to shoot at Dove Barn weddings and we always love working with fantastic couples like Natalie and Chris. This pair chose the perfect venue for their summer wedding.
Dove Barn Weddings is a unique wedding venue with rustic charm, situated in the heart of Cheshire near Knutsford. This family-run venue is situated on a former Dairy Farm and chickens and sheep roam on the nearby paddock.
On the day we got there early so we could catch up with Natalie and her bridal party getting ready. We say bridal party, it felt more like a bridal army with Natalie’s mum Gaynor, her sister Fran, her cousin Sarah, her niece Hattie and her friends Mel, Debs, and Lou all in high spirits and excited for the day.
Natalie looked amazing in her wedding dress that gave her the most perfect silhouette in all of our images of her. Bridesmaids wore a lovely pale blue that worked really well with the grooms’ party in smart petrol blue suits. Now I’ve mentioned them, they were pretty large in number as well. (Was this a competition between Natalie and Chris?) Chris’s grooms’ party consisted of Chris’s son Joe, best man Mickey, Natalie’s brothers Tom and James, ushers Chris, Jimmy, Colm, and Andy (who was also the master of ceremonies)
The ceremony was held inside The Meadow ceremony room, a charming and rustic room with fabulous views across the Cheshire fields and woodland. Natalie was walked down the aisle by her brother Tom.

One of the many things we love about shooting wedding photography at Dove Barn is the outside space. After the ceremony, everybody headed outside for a drinks reception and a chance to enjoy the sunshine and the stunning views. We took the chance to take some fantastic images of Natalie, Chris, and their wedding party set around the grounds of Dove Barn Weddings.
The wedding breakfast was held in the large airy reception hall which is ideal for dining and dancing. Its double barn doors open out to reveal a stunning backdrop of fields and woodland. And as the weather was perfect all day we were able to throw the doors open.
After a very sumptuous wedding breakfast, there were some very well received speeches by best man Mickey, Chris, and Natalie’s sister Fran.
Afterward, Natalie, Chris, and their guests all meandered outside again to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine. This was our chance to get some fantastic informal images of Natalie, Chris, and their guests relaxing and having fun. The images were amongst our favorites of the day. The natural glowing low light in them is perfect. (us Cheshire wedding photographers are obsessed with natural light!)
