Wedding Shrigley Hall
There is no doubt about it, a Wedding at Shrigley Hall in the tiny village of Pott Shrigey, Cheshire is a truly special place to get married. The hall has been a number of things since it was built in 1825 for William Turner, a Blackburn mill owner and Member of Parliament. During the 20th century the building was used as a school by the religious institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco, who in 1936 added a chapel to the south of the house, dedicating it to Saint John Bosco.
Nowadays its a country house hotel and a very popular wedding venue both for the service and the reception, and it was a special wedding for me to photograph as it is where I got married in 1999, so reliving someone else’s wedding as a wedding photographer brought back some great memories of my big day.
