ceremony all guests at front


An Englishman and an Irish lass walk into… well, take a look for yourselves. Searching for a venue in Cheshire? Allow me to introduce the Belle Époque – the venue for Esther and Mark’s stunning wedding.


Based in Knutsford, the Belle Époque is a beauty, a one-off, and – for wedding photographers – a challenge! Cool on the outside and cosy on the inside, it’s lavish, intimate, and dark – the deep reds and dark oak made for a luxurious wedding, and a tricky shoot… though I think the results speak for themselves. Took some work, but I cracked it!

As a restaurant to the stars – as well as a sensational wedding venue – the Belle Époque just oozes heritage. It’s full of kooks, nooks and crannies; throw in some friendly and supportive staff, and I enjoyed the day as much as the happy couple.

Thanks as ever to my friend and colleague, the always-reliable David Stubbs for working with me. Enjoy the pics!
