Manchester Wedding Photography • Sara & Michael 21.03.2019

 
I knew I was in Knutsford within 5 minutes of arriving and before I'd even walked up to the venue, a Lamborghini, a Porsche and McLaren drove past me, very nice! Sara and Michael decided to tie the knot at The Belle Epoque, a Grade II listed building in the heart of Knutsford, Cheshire. Built in 1907 the current building preserves many original features including 2 large pillars derived from St. Peters church in Manchester, unfortunately though, there was some emergency work that needed to be carried out and there was scaffolding covering the front of the building so we weren't able to get any shots on the high street with the old building in the background. The Belle Epoque is definitely a unique and stylish wedding venue on several levels, from walking in to the lounge area and cocktail bar and then upstairs to the ceremony and garden rooms the place is stylishly decorated with candles, fairy lights and large floral displays along with Art Nouveu fireplaces and Venetian hand-made glass floors. Then there's the Mediterranean roof garden, a perfect place for capturing some stunning wedding photographs. The day started with Sara and the Bridesmaids getting ready in the Bridal Suite with its' handy adjoining prep room and private garden, a great place to get ready, nice and chilled with no stress. I'll finish the blog and tag the relevant suppliers just as soon as I get the information back from Sara.
