Louise & Matts Autumn Wedding at The Fairlawns Hotel & Spa
October weddings are a bit awesome! all the colours and the darker evenings mean I can play with some lighting and create some atmospheric portraits. Louise and Matt had a lovely church wedding at St John’s Church, Heath Hayes. Then travelling in vintage style in matching baby blue VW camper and Bug to the Fairlawns Hotel & Spa.
Louise and Matt’s wedding is featured over on the brand new Fairlawns’ website too! I’m pretty excited to be listed as a recommended supplier. For more wedding photos from Louise and Matts wedding click here to take a look.
I met Jenny at the National Wedding Show held at the Birmingham NEC in October. Jenny was also called Jenny Rose and had to do a double take when she saw her name above my stand! We got chatting and realised that there were lots of odd little coincidences..we went to the same high school, Jen taught at my old primary school, we had the same name… basically we just had to work together!
Jenny and Stephen got married at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Hednesford, Staffordshire. The church is grand both inside and out. The beautiful architecture and interiors were a dream to capture romantic portraits after the ceremony. During the wedding pre-consult Stephen showed me his Grandmothers treasured wedding album… which was just beautiful! Jen mentioned that she would love a full group shot on the church steps, reminiscent of the traditional style. I love modern, natural style wedding photography but I will always take time to capture a few well curated group shots…these are the pictures that in years to come future generations look at wondering and asking who all the people were. As a guest at a wedding I once photographed put it so perfectly - ‘a wedding album is like a window into a another time’.
Jen and Ste held their wedding reception at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. The Moat House is such a great venue with stunning backdrops at every turn, be it the canal that runs at the back or the pools and tudor building.
So this was a special wedding. I used to work with a guy called Giles back in the day at Jessops…remember Jessops!? Back then you would find every aspiring photography student working part-time there lol! anyway way Giles became a good friend and Beth is his little Sister - so it was a wedding to look forward too! I know the family and they are awesome!
Beth and Luke got married at St Mary the Virgin Chuch, Colton near Rugeley, Staffordshire and it really was a quintessential English Summer wedding. The reception was held at the stunning Weston Hall, Stafford. Weston Hall is just beautiful with Elizabethan features like lattice windows, stone fireplaces and oak beams. We were lucky to have a gorgeous weather and a magnificent sunset but I can imagine that cosy winter weddings would be just as delightful there.
