Charles and Ellen's Frosty Winter Wedding at The Plough Inn, Eaton, Macclesfield- By Kirsty Bate Photography- A Cheshire Wedding Photographer


On a frosty January morning, amidst the country  charm of The Plough Inn Eaton Macclesfield, Charles and Ellen exchanged vows, surrounded by their loved ones. With rustic wooden beams, an aisle adorned  in sage foliage and an array of personal touches the stage was set for a day filled with romance, laughter  and unforgettable memories.

Ellen’s very chilled morning commenced at a bridesmaid’s home where the wedding party played card games by an open fire. Cups of tea and croissants were consumed and glasses of fizz overflowed. All the girls, including the mother of the bride, prepared for the momentous occasion ahead under the skilled hands of one of my favourite makeup teams @makeupbyFranki.

Ellen’s friends watched as the bride  put on her exquisite floor length gown, smartly equipped with long sleeves to keep in the warmth, stunning button detailing and a breathtaking train. Ellen’s hair and makeup was elegantly set off with her train-length veil, beaded hair clip and classic cream long-stem roses.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests indulged in an array of drinks and canapés, savouring each moment of celebration. True to their laid-back style, Charles and Ellen opted for a minimalistic approach to photography, favouring candid moments over staged shots. However, amidst the festivities, they couldn't resist capturing a classic confetti shot and after some gentle persuasion, a few couple portraits  with the picturesque red phone box and iconic pub front as their backdrop.
