Jodie and Spencer's stylish black tie wedding at the majestic Soughton Hall in Cheshire.


Trendy Cheshire couple Jodie and Spencer had always dreamed of a classy black tie wedding at an exclusive location, so Soughton Hall in Cheshire was the perfect wedding venue for them. A beautiful summer wedding with stylish family and friends having the best of times provided some unforgettable memories.

The day began with bridal preparations for Jodie and her army of bridesmaids (an impressive 14 of them) at a nearby hotel with Jodie looking every inch the princess for a ‘Father of the Bride reveal’ on the wedding day morning. Wearing a beautiful Justin Alexander wedding gown which was complimented with Christian Louboutin shoes, Tiffany & Co jewellery and a gift of a Swarovski bracelet.


The couple had a beautiful traditional wedding ceremony at their local church in Chester before moving onto the Soughton Hall via horse-drawn carriage… As the trendy couple and their stylish guests arrived for this summer wedding they were treated to a champagne drinks reception on the lawn with the grand country house as the backdrop.

There was plenty of photographic opportunities at every turn before the wedding guests were invited to the rear of the house for the wedding breakfast, speeches and a big party. A live piano wedding singer serenaded the guests during the main course and live entertainment kept the party going into the early hours.

Soughton Hall is an exclusive use wedding venue situated on the border of Cheshire and North Wales. A stunning Georgian country house full of character, charm and warmth. The venue is approached down a sweeping driveway that leads you to big iron gates and a majestic fountain all of which is surrounded by landscaped gardens.

The main building is a stunning Georgian country house that’s been lovingly restored, and certainly gives your wedding the wow factor with its choice of stunning locations in which to get married; these include a Dining Room and Drawing Room (which feature dramatic double height ceilings), a Secret Garden shaded by eucalyptus trees and a large Marquee at the rear of the house which is accessed through a glass walkway.


Wes Simpson Wedding’s was chosen to photograph Jodie and Spencer’s wedding day at Soughton Hall through recommendation, and because the couple wanted a professional photographer with a modern approach to wedding photography. As a creative documentary style wedding photographer, I was spoilt for choice when creating ‘fly-on-the-wall’ style images and documenting the natural moments during the reception at this amazing Cheshire wedding venue.
