You've chosen Heaton House Farm for your wedding venue. Since you have such an incredible wedding venue, you will need the best Cheshire wedding photographer. My name is David Conway. I am an award-winning Heaton House Farm wedding photographer with many years of valuable experience. The working farm sits in the Cheshire countryside, close to Manchester, Staffordshire, and Macclesfield. If you want your wedding day to be fantastic, you couldn't have picked a better location!
As a Heaton House Farm wedding photographer, I seek the best photographic opportunities. At the farm, I can use the oak pagoda and the full-length mirrors in the bridal pamper room to take beautiful photos of the bride and bridesmaids. With individual make-up stations, I can get beautiful photos of your bridesmaids during the bridal preparation process. The incredible views from the hillside of a working farm will add rustic, country charm to your wedding album. Your dream wedding awaits and will be everything you ever dreamed it could be.
Heaton House Farm is a fantastic wedding venue for many reasons. It has been in the same family for over seven generations and is family-run. The Heath family hosted their first wedding in 1999 and, at the same time, maintained their working farm. Your special day will be full of activity and even a cow or two. If you choose to have an outdoor ceremony complete with fairy lights and a view of the giant sycamore, the backdrop of your photos may include livestock grazing contentedly behind you. One of many beautiful venues in the area, none of the others offer the unique atmosphere of a working farm.
You want your perfect day to be one your wedding guests will never forget. The Heath family are proud to be able to give the bride and groom a wedding day they will enjoy. The family has won many awards for their beautiful venue. Many Cheshire wedding photographers jump at the chance to photograph weddings at the farm. There are so many opportunities at the venue. If the couple wants something unique, a train station is just a few miles away and will add to the country setting.
Heaton House Farm wedding photography allows me to explore my creative side. The venue offers so many photographic opportunities it isn't easy to choose a favourite. When you have chosen your wedding date, schedule your first meeting with me. We can visit the farm and meet the family. An on-site visit lets us choose the perfect area for your group shots. It will also let me wander around, looking for the best angles and places to step back. Being out of the way lets me capture those shots of emotion and happy smiles. Emotions people often show when they think no one is looking. Contact me as soon as possible so we can get started!
I am David Conway, an award-winning West Yorkshire wedding photographer. I've been a wedding photographer for more than 14 years, and I take both relaxed, professional photos of the day's events and beautiful, modern photos of the couple. The bride and groom can spend time together and take unique photos. My style is natural and unposed, and I rarely tell people where to stand or how to pose themselves. This leads to beautiful, natural wedding photos.
I've won several prestigious awards from the Guild of Photographers for my work as a wedding photographer.

1. What area do you cover?
I am based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, which gives me access to Greater Manchester, Cheshire, and large areas of Yorkshire. As a rule, I am happy to travel up to 60 miles to cover a wedding. Any further than this I would have to charge a travel fee.
2. How many photos will I get from our wedding photography?
Every wedding is different and the number of images you receive can be a reflection of what moments are there to be captured. On a normal wedding day I usually deliver between 600-800 images to your online gallery.
3. How long will it be before I receive my wedding gallery?
I know how keen my couples are to see and share some images from their wedding day, so with this in mind I always like to provide a selection of teaser shots a day or two after the wedding day. This would usually be around 20-30 images. I then aim to deliver the full collection of images on an online gallery within 6-8 weeks.
4. Can I share my images and buy prints and wall art?
From the online gallery my coupes will have access to the full selection of wedding images, but they will be subtly watermarked. From the gallery you would be able to order any prints or wall art directly through my professional printing service. You would be able to share the gallery to any friends and family, and they too, would be able to order any prints they may like as well. If you wanted the full collection of high resolution images to share and keep, my couples do have the option of ordering a USB. See more on my packages page here.
5. How long have you been Photographing Weddings?
Having been photographing weddings for the best part of 13 years, I am a highly experienced photographer. I have been lucky to work at some of the countries premium wedding venues and have one many awards, including the prestigious Guild Of Photographers Wedding Photographer of the Year for 2021.
6. Are you fully Insured?
Yes, I have insurance for all my equipment as well as £2M public liability insurance. I also have Drone insurance as well as the necessary drone qualifications to be legal and safe when flying at a wedding.
7. Will we have to pay extra for Drone Photos?
No. I see my drone as an essential piece of equipment on a wedding day, and so long as the weather allows it and it is safe to do so, I will use it on your wedding day to capture shots of the venue, your guests and it allows me to get creative when getting shots of my couples too.
8. How do I book in for a chat about my wedding?
Get in touch using my contact page here and we can arrange a chat, either in person at my home in Brockholes, Holmfirth, or we can arrange a Zoom call.
Part of the wedding planning process is booking the right photographer. I would love to get to know you. Call today to schedule an appointment so we can sit down and learn a little about one another. Send an email if you prefer! The sooner I meet you, the more time I will have to create an idea of photos you would like to capture during your ceremony, reception and evening party.
