Styal Lodge is a magical venue for any wedding, set in idyllic countryside on the Cheshire and Manchester border. Located within the beautiful open grounds of Styal Golf Club, the Lodge offers its own entrance and private terrace and gardens. The course has its own lake that can be accessed by a golf buggy! While your day may feel idyllically isolated, the nearby village of Styal provides easy access to Manchester & Wilmslow via train.
As a small family-run venue, Styal Lodge never fails to provide that personal touch that will mean so much on your wedding day. There are no packages on offer at Stal Lodge. Instead, the team works with each couple to create a truly bespoke day based on your personal tastes, ideas, style and budget.
If you are not 100% sure where to start, the team at Styal Lodge is always on hand to discuss ideas and support you throughout your planning.
PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE & APPROACH
Too often, couples regret feeling overly posed or awkward, their day photographed not captured, and apprehensive about their wedding photography.
Over ten years ago, we set out to challenge this, to put our couple's experience and the forefront of our wedding photography and what we created was truly magic!
The style of wedding photography we created was authentic and intentional. Neither pure documentary nor entirely staged, but a blend that captured our couples in spirit and essence. Light, when understood, and be used like an artist paints to create something magical, capturing reality but in a way you may never have seen before!
While traditionally staged group photos may not be your thing, rarely are we not asked to take a few. Even when it's simply keeping the family happy, we are always willing to round up a few group shots if asked.

CONTEMPORARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
It is not unusual to expect to compromise with barn weddings. Typically they offer exposed beams, soaring ceilings and an authentic romantic feel, but without natural light. However, Styal Lodge was built with weddings in mind. Its large glazed walls flood the venue with beautiful natural light, bringing its timber to life. Cheshire is well known for its assortment of country estates and stately homes. Still, Styal Lodge offers something unique, contemporary and beautiful.
Styal Lodge has a natural romantic charm, amplified by the unspoilt countryside surrounding the venue. The FITZPATRICKS style of photography is based around capturing the natural moments of your day in an editorial/candid fashion blended with creating stunning romantic portraits.
This gorgeous Cheshire venue is the perfect setting for your romantic story and a photographer's dream. But, for the most perfect experience, you and your photographer must be looking to tell the same story. This is why we have put communication at the heart of your experience with us. We organise an engagement session with each couple, not just to create some fantastic photos but to get to know our couples and listen to their wedding dreams.
