Macclesfield Wedding Venue

Set just outside the Peak District to the west is beautiful and unique wedding venue. This exclusive Cheshire wedding venue is a perfect setting for your dream wedding. Being a Hilltop Country House Wedding Photographer I have experienced just what it is like to get married here. As far as photography goes its an excellent place for both me capturing your friends and family having an awesome time in the beautiful gardens and for us to go off and get some stunning portraits for a short time.

I love being a photographer and even more so a wedding photographer. If you would like to see more of my work from other weddings around the world then check out my wedding gallery. If you want to know a little more on how I approach a wedding you can find the out on my wedding information page.

A Wedding Photographer At Hilltop

Being a wedding photographer as this wedding featured on this page was so “people” oriented it was just amazing to be a part of it. As you can tell I shoot and attend a lot of weddings and its the ones where the wedding guests have a great time that make the best ones. Yes of course you want your day to be beautiful and the food to be tasty etc. The things that makes every wedding so unique though is the people. Aynsley and Becks I had previously met on a pre wedding shoot they had booked with me. So I already had the opportunity to get to know them. Then on the day everything ran super smooth and it was great to meet all their friends and family.


Kind words from newlyweds

Hilarious, Thoughtful, Amazing.

Our wedding was amazing and mostly because of Stephen. The photos we now have from our day is something we can keep forever and show our children in the future and know they will see exactly how our wedding day was. You were more like a friend than a photographer. You laughed with us, were there for us if we needed something. Without sounding over the top you were everything we could have asked for in a photographer. You weren’t like any photographer we had ever met at a wedding. You wouldn’t have even known you were there.

Creative, Professional, Trustworthy.

Our photos are exactly what we wanted and more. They capture all the fun, laughter, love and enjoyment of the day. They brought a tear to everyone’s eye and was an unexpected, lovely surprise to open from you so soon after the wedding. When we got all our photographs, we were thrilled with the quality of every single one. It was important to us not to have a photographer who bossed everyone around and ‘got in the way.’ You were like a wedding guest on the day and got on with everyone. You were unobstrusive and professional. ‘Hire him!’ Good value for money, modern beautiful creative photographs and a complete professional throughout.

Friendly, Talented, Professional.

Myself and Dave felt totally at ease when we met Ste. Ste is a fantastic photographer with a real personal touch. He gets to know about you, your family and friends and that helps him to capture key shots on the day. I also loved how he asked my dad to take me to one side and recall a story from my childhood whilst capturing our emotions and love.  I loved the way Ste mixed with our guests and everyone commented how friendly and lovely he was.

“We always knew you would be able to capture our day the way we envisaged. I could not be happier with the results. You really did capture the day perfectly and you have given us memories to share with everyone for the rest of our lives. We will forever be grateful for that. You couldn’t ask for a better photographer than Ste. If you want someone who will give it his all and produce the most amazingly creative yet naturally beautiful images of your day then you need to pick this man. Before our big day we had every confidence in Ste, and he did not disappoint.”
