Celebrity Wedding Planner { The Heath House}

Celebrity Wedding Planner

A couple of months back I had a phone call from a TV company asking me if I would be available to photograph a wedding that would appear on TV in August, all was top secret and I was only told the couples names, location of the wedding and the TV show…. celebrity wedding planner….  the wedding planners for this episode Denise Welch and Russell Grant.

When I heard the location was The Heath House I knew this would be an amazing wedding as the venue is stunning with fantastic grounds and plenty of great photographic opportunities.

Because this wedding was all top secret I didn’t get a chance to meet with Stacey or Alistair before their big day, neither did I have any idea of the type of photographs they even wanted. But I do have plenty of experience photographing at Heath House and this provided invaluable later on !!

Alistair arrived and was great from the offset giving me the time I needed to get his photographs done before Stacey arrived, I was also surprised at how many of the guest I knew from previous weddings I had photographed.

Stacey arrived shortly after the groom and looked stunning Denise had done a great job choosing the dress…  

After the service I managed to get the bride and groom for about 20 minutes for the photographs we did get some great images but I wouldn’t want to work under those time constraints every week it’s simply not enough.

All in all I think the celebrity wedding planners did Stacey and Alistair proud, from the suits to the wedding dress, wedding cars to cake, they provided them with some great wedding suppliers who came together to give Stacey and Alistair a day to remember.

Thank for having me along it was great fun!

Weston Super Mare Photography

Just back from a couple of days break with the family,we wanted somewhere close so we headed off to Weston Super Mare as this is only an hour or so away and by some miracle had three of the best days of sunshine this year.

Wherever I go the camera comes with me, I usually take my Fuji X100 as this is small but still gives me great image quality and I don’t have to carry a huge bag of kit around with me. However this time I decided I would also take along the Nikon D3s  but not really thinking I would end up taking many images I left behind my lee filter kit..gutted ! and for the shot below I really could of done with them.

 

It’s no secret that I feel very privileged to make a living from my photography and have done so for over 10 years, but it is also a great way to relax simply taking photographs just for pleasure like the one below..it wont win any awards but it’s never about that for me, it’s simply the pleasure of being outdoors and enjoying what I do. There were some great views across the bay of the Somerset hills and Welsh coast and I’m looking forward to re visiting in the near future with some extra camera gear.

So here is a shot of the grand pier in Weston Super Mare ( without my filters ..doh ! )

Check out this little cutie !

Here are some photographs from a recent Baby studio session.

This little one comes into our Stafford studio around every four months as she is on the cherubs package,  these are a selection of images from her last photo shoot.

We always try and give the parents variety so it’s always a good idea to bring two to three choices of clothes as we can offer many different style’s of backgrounds.

 Also we can offer  lifestyle shoots so if you prefer having your photography session outdoors please feel free to ask.

The Cherubs and WMG portrait packages make great christening gifts and can be given in the form of a gift voucher…and remember we have been photographing the watch me grow for over 10 years so have a huge amount of experience when it comes to getting them to smile ( occasionally we fail !!  ) but not often  :O)

Once you have completed either the Cherubs or WMG portait package you can come back to the studio every year until you child is 5 years old and have a free photography session.

 Information on the cherubs and watch me grow portrait packages can be found on our web site or email: info@stephensutton.co.uk  Studio tel; 01785 601140

 Thanks for looking !

Staffordshire Wedding Photography: Helen and Jack Hadley Park House

Stafford Wedding Photographer 

 

Helen & Jack are getting married this year at Hadley Park House Telford in Shropshire and have chosen me to be their wedding photographer.

  

As a Staffordshire based photographer it is always nice to get to go to other venues outside of Staffordshire, I have photographed weddings at Hadley park House in the past and I’m very much looking forward to re visiting this venue in September.

 

For the pre shoot we decided it was a good idea to use Stafford Castle as Jack and Helen often take their dog up there for a good long walk, I did try to get the dog on some of the photos but to say he was full of energy would be an understatement !! :O)

As it was the school holidays and a really hot sunny day ( for a change !) the castle grounds were pretty busy…we did however manage to find a couple of nice areas for the pre wedding shoot.

 

Really looking forward to photographing Jack and Helens wedding at Hadley Park House in September and images will follow from their wedding day on my blog, but for now here are a few images from the pre wedding shoot in Stafford.

 

  

Triumph !! I managed to get a couple of photos with the dog on.
