Clare & David’s Autumn Wedding at Weston Hall Stafford
Last year I was fortunate enough to photograph a number of weddings at Weston Hall, A venue I love working at and one with so many great photographic opportunities.
It’s also handy because Weston Hall is the closest wedding venue to my house, so I can be found there from time to time enjoying a meal and relaxing with family and friends, and great food it is too.
David and Clare had chosen Weston Hall as their wedding venue for an autumn wedding and apart from one small shower we had good weather for most of the day.
I have known David since we were 5 years old at primary school (yeah that long!)And when he asked me to photograph his wedding I couldn’t have been more pleased.
Pre wedding meeting
I always meet up with couples around 4 weeks prior to a wedding to discuss any particular images they want me to capture; I tend to shoot a mixed style of documentary ,relaxed and informal images along with some of the romantic,creative and dusk photographs. I find this gives a wedding album a good mixture of images. The brief from David & Clare was simple, few groups and capture the day and guests naturally. Group photo’s are something that need careful consideration, we understand you will want some of those important family groups, but you also need to keep in mind they can eat into your time, so planing is everything and not having a huge list of groups. We try and advise on 5 to 6 max, This way you can get the key images you have requested but more importantly enjoy your day, trust me no one wants to stand around for hours whilst endless groups are being photographed.
A bit about Weston Hall
Weston Hall is located in the heart of Staffordshire countryside, it is a magnificent grade 11* listed building surrounded by 20 acres of breath taking scenery. The Hall retains many of its Elizabethan features including open stone fireplaces and oak beams in many of the rooms. It has elegant decor throughout and is a truly magical setting for you and your guest to enjoy.
Looking at my bookings for 2015 and 2016 it looks like I will be visiting Weston Hall a few more time yet, so keep checking back for more images.
Thanks for looking….
