Summer Weddings At The Moat House

 
A few weeks ago I was back at the Moat House in Acton Trussell For Holly and Pauls Summer wedding.
 
The day started with a trip to the Bride’s home for her preparation photographs
I usually start with the details such as the Brides shoes, jewellery, wedding dress and Perfume; these make a nice spread in the wedding album.
Then I tend to follow on with the hair and make up, but this is done towards the end when the final touches are being applied, all this is done in an unobtrusive manner so I wont ask you to pose for anything.
 
Once I had all the preps done it was time to head over to St Michaels and meet the groom and his entourage to capture them arriving at the church.
Holly arrived a little later and looked amazing, her walk up to the church with her dad and Bridesmaids was another opportunity to grab some natural images.
It’s always nice to mix the more natural shots with a limited number of formal photographs, this helps tell the story of the day rather than having everything rigid and posed. Weddings for me should be fun, show excitement, emotions and moments that can’t be posed or copied.
After the service we headed over to the moat house, Platinum wedding cars provided the transport for the couple, they have immaculate cars and provide a first class service so check them out if you are looking for wedding cars.
During the drinks reception I photographed the groups that the couple had requested, and then took them for a walk around the grounds to get some of timeless images across the lake.
It proved very entraining trying to do this with a swan that has some serious social issue J you can check out his antics in the blog photos.
 
Holly and Paul had gone for all day coverage so this is usually from the bridal preparations through to the couples dance in the evening, I tend to hang on after this for a few dance floor shots and maybe a nice dusk shot with the tree all lit up, this looks amazing at night and is a must get shot for anyone getting Married at the Moat House.
 
Anyway thanks for looking please check out a few images from the day.

A Moat House Wedding

THE MOAT HOUSE ACTON TRUSSELL

 
Recently I returned to the moat house in Acton Trussell for Richard and Lucy Ellen’s wedding, Richard and Lucy came to see me at my studio in Stafford after one of the Moat House showcases last year and booked me to photograph their wedding.
I have been fortunate enough to have worked at this particular venue for years and as one of their recommended suppliers  it’s always a pleasure to return to this beautiful venue in the heart of Staffordshire.
Also this year I seem to have photographed a lot of our armed forces weddings in particular the RAF.  The key factor for me with any wedding is to try and be a little different, I don’t want to take the same images as everyone else I prefer to push myself and create images for each couple that is as individual as them.
Below are a selection of images from  Richard and Lucy Ellen’s wedding day to give you an idea of my style of photography, it’s a mixture of documentary  and creatively posed images the idea is to give you a wedding album that will  hold interest from beginning to end with some cool shots and fun along the way.
Congratulations to Richard and Lucy Married at The Moat House Acton Trussell.
 
 
































We will be at the Moathouse showcase on Sunday 15th December please feel free to come and have a chat about your wedding day, thanks for looking.

A Moat House Wedding

A Moat House Wedding

Jo and Gareth got married at St Giles Church in Haughton Followed by a reception at The Moat House in Acton Trussell.
 
One essential piece of kit on this particular wedding was a snow shovel !! I could not believe how much snow we had over night, plus the trip to the bride’s house required me to go over Cannock chase, needless to say I set off over an hour early. 
On making it to the bride’s house I found myself being dug out twice as the snow was so deep. What I found particularly humbling about this wedding was how all the neighbours with 4×4’s put themselves on standby should anyone need a lift to the church or the moat house.
As usual I will let my pictures tell the story….
