The Holford Estate - A Modern English Rose Cheshire Wedding Inspiration Shoot

When Christmas is over and we’re all feeling the chill, January arrives and wedding season doesn’t kick in for a couple more months. As wedding industry creatives, this is the time we focus on resetting, on marketing, on planning for the year and finding ways to keep our brains whirring and twirling with possibilities. The last creative shoot I participated in was at the iconic Stockport Plaza with a vintage vibe (coincidentally Peaky Blinders is currently shooting there this week!) - for our next collaboration, the wonderful Kate Bader of Florence & Vera Events and I put our heads together (along with Bec & Ali of Diddibox Flowers) and began planning a shoot COMPLETELY DIFFERENT creatively. Where the last project was edgy, retro and industrial, we wanted to harken back to tradition and show off what a modern English Rose could be. With the lush backdrop of my newest fave venue, the INCREDIBLE Holford Estate in Knutsford, we gathered another dream of wedding vendors (including some exciting new faces in the industry!) and created a bit of whimsical magic.

Here is just a sneak peek of what we got up to yesterday, with HUGE gratitude to Hannah and Frances of The Holford Estate for being so generous with their space (and pets!), Kate for her leadership as usual, our GORGEOUS models Roisin & Chris for being literally up for anything and the amazing team of vendors (listed below with links) who donated their time, resources and considerable talents to put together yet another fabulous day. Thank you again guys! xx
