Haslington Hall Wedding Photography: A Look Back!

Photography: Simon J. Newbury, Tina Newbury
Venue: Haslington Hall, Cheshire


Haslington Hall in Cheshire is a wonderful venue for weddings. It’s a really beautiful building with the facilities for both indoor and outdoor weddings.

In 2012 Simon J. Newbury Photography was privileged to share Becky & Adam’s wedding day. Thankfully the weather was onside and the wedding was in the gardens. It was a lovely day and the final album was very well received by the Bride & Groom!

Nantwich Jazz, Blues & Music Festival

It’s certainly been a busy week for us here at Simon J. Newbury Photography. We were tasked with capturing the 16th Nantwich Jazz, Blues & Music Festival. A wonderful event spread across 15 venues and 5 days!

Tina and myself were out every day capturing

lots of the action around the town and the venues. One of my favourite bands were Spikedriver who appeared at the Crown Hotel Ballroom.


Tony Christie was amazing and it was great to actually meet the man and do a portrait of him in his dressing room!

The jazz concerts at the churches were also really nice and the entire festival had lots of variety!

Tom Seals played all over the place and we were pleased to be able to get him photos with Tony Christie and Dame Cleo Laine. It was nice to see my photo of Tom on his roll-up banners around the town!

I managed to fit in two Nantwich Town matches as well.I travelled down to Stafford on the team bus on Monday before getting back to Nantwich in time for the final gig…

Since the festival I have also done another ‘Paint & Portrait’ with Sharon. I also visited Haslington Hall, where I am booked to photograph two weddings over the summer. I was meeting with Kim & Darren for the pre-wedding shoot which is a standard part of all my packages! The weather was kind and the daffodils were lovely!

Nantwich Jazz, Blues & Music Festival 1

Well its festival time again and we’re gearing up for a busy season. As well as our regular photographic coverage of Crewe Live (looking amazing this year with Ash, Hadouken and Pulled Apart By Horses) we are covering the Nantwich Jazz Festival this year as well.

The popular festival has some amazing acts and top of the bill is Tony Christie. I’m hoping to get a portrait in Nantwich as well as lots of great live shots of his performance. We’ll be getting around all the venues as well to ensure decent coverage of the event!

Its a busy weekend for us as we also have our regular event at the Box in Crewe to photograph on Friday. Saturday is another home fixture for Nantwich Town FC ahead of Monday’s away fixture at Stafford. We’ll also be at Crewe Alex for the WTD Promotions darts exhibition featuring Steve Beaton and Colin Lloyd offering our event photography.

Tuesday (weather permitting) we are meeting up with a lovely couple for their engagement shoot at Haslington Hall. They are getting married later this year and we always offer a complimentary pre-wedding shoot as part of all our packages!

No doubt we’ll see some of you around this weekend!
