Jo and Lee’s Charming Wedding Day at The Plough Inn at Eaton
Jo and Lee’s amazing wedding day took place at The Plough Inn at Eaton, a charming venue near Congleton in Cheshire. Having met the couple at Jo’s sister’s wedding a few years earlier, I was honoured to be recommended as their wedding photographer. I had the pleasure of doing a pre-wedding shoot for Jo and Lee, and I was eagerly looking forward to capturing their special day at The Plough Inn at Eaton.
On the wedding day, we were fortunate to have a dry day despite some clouds. I joined Jo at The Plough Inn at Eaton for her bridal preparations, which included makeup, hair, Jo’s sister Lisa helping her into her dress, and, of course, pizza! You can’t get any better than pizza to kick off a day full of love and joy.
After the groom and his entourage made a fun arrival in their car for the day, we had a lovely, intimate ceremony with about 28 guests in attendance. The Plough Inn at Eaton boasts an incredible converted barn that serves as a civil ceremony room and a separate space for the couple’s wedding breakfast. The venue also features a stunning old pub frontage, and I can attest to the exceptional and professional staff there, having visited The Plough Inn many times myself.
Following the ceremony, which was witnessed by the couple’s three children and their closest family and friends, it was time for photos. One of my highlights of the year was the fun, impromptu photo session we had with Jo and Lee at a nearby park. The couple swung on swings, laughing and enjoying themselves like kids again, resulting in some truly 100% natural and fun images. My aim is always to capture the most authentic moments possible, and we certainly achieved that in the park.
After some heartfelt speeches, it was time for dancing, laughter, and merriment. The celebration continued into the night, with creative night shots and more dancing, capturing the essence of Jo and Lee’s extraordinary day. Finally, it was time for me to say goodbye, offer my congratulations, and leave the happy couple and their guests to continue the party.
Thank you, Jo and Lee, for allowing me to be a part of your special wedding day at The Plough Inn at Eaton. Your love and happiness were truly a joy to capture, and I wish you a lifetime of laughter and wonderful memories together.
