Rob and Sophie got married on September 17th 2016. The ceremony took place in the lovely little Norcliffe Chapel, Styal followed by the reception in a beautifully decorated tipi from Big Chief Tipis at The Wedding Meadow, Hill Top Farm in Cheshire.
Words from Sophie… ‘Myself and Rob adore the outdoors, with him a keen triathlete, regularly running and cycling around the Cheshire Countryside and myself growing up in the remote Yorkshire village of Scapegoat Hill plus regularly visiting my sister and brother in law who live in Norway, we are always happiest when outdoors, surrounded by rolling hills, trees and fresh air. Our many trips to Scandinavia, mainly Norway and Denmark was definately the catalyst of inspiration for our wedding. The relaxed, warm but minimalistic styling was key to creating the atmosphere and look and feel we both wanted for our big day…. and I think we pulled it off. The tipi had the ‘Wow’ factor I wanted, and all our guests were blown away once stepping foot inside, it had the Nordic nostalgia I’d hoped for and brought back memories of drinking Jagear in wooded cabins in the Nordic hills!’
Sophie looked beautiful in her Pronovias gown from Dotty Taylor Bridal and I was obsessed with her wild bouquet by Manchester based florist, Frog. Rob worn a tailor made suit from the amazing Whitfield and Ward and just check out the gorgeous floral bridesmaids dresses from ASOS.
Kind words from Rob and Sophie…
‘I had first met Melissa Beattie North East Wedding Photographer, at one of The Big Chief Tipis open days and loved the style of her work and how she ‘captured Love’ and although I didn’t book Melissa straight away (must do research I told myself) I just knew I would come back to her, I think for weddings you have to go with your heart and listen to your inclines as they are usually spot on! We were so right with Melissa and love our pics!
She captured the outoorsyness that we wanted and didn’t batter an eye lid when we dragged her into the woods for some portrait pics!’
