Maddie and Mike cutting their wedding cake at Styal Lodge

Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Madhavi + Michael

Maddie + Mike had their wedding at the rather awesome Styal Lodge in Cheshire.

Styal Lodge is a family run venue in the Cheshire countryside which we’ve instantly fallen in love with. It’s a blank canvas that you can decorate in your own style and because it has it’s own en-suite prep room, you can do everything at the same site, which is handy. They’re also dead good at feeding photographers so that’s a thumbs up from us. Here’s their website.

Maddie + Mike went for the unique theme of “Space Dinosaurs” for their wedding and called upon the skills of a shed-load of alternative wedding vendors to make it happen, many of which are our friends from the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza. Check them out if you’re planning something more ‘fun wedding than hum-drum wedding’.

We had a brilliant day with these guys and their friends and families. Everyone worked so hard to make sure that Maddie + Mike’s day rocked. In fact, we’ve been talking about Maddie’s bridesmaids since we first met them at E.W.E. We’ve never encountered a group of ladies who were so invested in their friend’s wedding before. We got a proper grilling as they were taking notes about each vendor and it was absolutely heartwarming.

From the first flick of the hairbrush to the last drunken dance, here’s a look at Maddie + Mike’s alternative wedding extravaganza at Styal Lodge…
