Hyde Bank Farm Wedding Photographer
Wedding photography at Hyde Bank Farm, Stockport


Wedding photography at Hyde Bank Farm a grade 2 listed farm building dating back to 1655. A wedding venue that was once a milk farm, and now a place to tie the knot in style. Michelle and Andy planned a 1920’s style wedding, and it was just that! I was delighted to be part of their wedding as a photographer at this wonderful venue called Hyde Bank Farm near Stockport.

Bridal Preparations


Michelle and Andy started their day with bridal and groom preparations at the pub located near Hyde Bank Farm Near Marple Stockport. The bride-to-be, and the immediate family, stayed here the night before the big day.  I arrived at 10am, to a beautiful bright summer’s day, the hair and make up artist was attending to the hair of the bride.  The formal attire and morning suits neatly hung up everywhere. I started taking images in my photographic style, unobtrusively documenting, moments of emotion and laughter in a relaxed way. Through the characterful windows of the inn, the stunning backdrop of Rolling green hills, trees and tractors, just like the one on the lawn at Hyde Bank Farm.

A 20 minute trip to Hyde Bank Farm


The 1920’s themed wedding, got underway with a 20 minute drive to Hyde Bank Farm in the wedding limousine, a vintage Rolls Royce. Stockport Wedding Cars provided a unique photo opportunity to shoot the vintage Rolls Royce taking Andy, the groom, and his best man to their venue. I followed in my car, photographing some lovely timeless images as the wedding car traveled to Hyde Bank Farm, situated on Oakwood Road in Romiley. My trusted Canon full frame wedding camera’s shutter was sending images to the memory card to document this happy couples celebration of love and friendship. The mother of the bride wearing a vibrant red wedding outfit and fascinator made for a stunning image. Before the couple took the plunge, their guests gathered outside on the lawns, that were once farm pasture. In the full September sun, the old red farm tractor which was parked on the lawn, made for good subject matter, allowing photographs of the children playing at ‘tractor driving’. The sunshine was magnificent, giving some wonderful lighting, from rim light to dappled light, flowing through the trees.

The old Blackhurst’s Farm, now re named, Hyde Bank Farm was a fantastic wedding location.  The ceremony of solemn vows and giving and receiving  of rings, was held in what was once, the hay loft of the old farm. Here, Andy and his bride signed the registrar’s wedding certificate. Looking forward to life together, they romantically walked down the aisle hand in hand to the clicking of phones cameras, possibly to send images to Facebook.  So much confetti was thrown that it was hard to see the newly weds through my camera’s viewfinder.

Later, the journey just begun, Michelle and Andy, went for a romantic evening stroll. I followed with a portrait 85mm lens onboard my trusty digital S.L.R.  I took some candid shots as they walked in and around the factory very close to Hyde Bank Farm, which makes paper tubes for the textile industry and a very interesting location to take some unique images.

The celebrations ran well into the night at Hyde Bank Farm Stockport


The evening photography ran well into the night at Hyde Bank Farm. It allowed me to utilise the natural light at the venue; to add that bit of ‘zest’ to the images with a touch of flash, and to freeze the dance action of the evening celebrations.  The music was provided by the The New York Brass Band, who commenced the evening reception by parading into the Ann Hyde suite at Hyde Bank Farm and finished long past 11 oclock, by leading a conga of wedding guests, to bring to end a fantastic wedding knees up! Have a look at some of the pictures of this great wedding venue.
