Aston Marina Summer wedding Becky and Tom
Late last summer I had the pleasure to be Becky and Tom’s wedding photographer. The couple chose Aston Marina near Stone in Staffordshire, which is a fantastic location to celebrate their wedding. Becky works in the wedding industry herself and is a fantastic make up artist, you can check out her work here.
Aston Marina wedding venue
I was great to be back at Aston Marina again. I’ve shot a number of weddings at the venue and they’re always a great day, sure enough Becky and Toms wedding lived up to expectations. Aston Marina it is a fantastic place to create such fantastic memories. Days like this remind me why I love my job as a Staffordshire wedding photographer, I couldn’t ask for better opportunities than photographing fantastic couples like Becky and Tom and working at fantastic venues like Aston Marina.
I started the day photographing at Becky’s parents house where Becky and her bridesmaids got ready for the day. It’s always great to start the story as ‘team bride’ gets their hair and makeup applied, you can feel the atmosphere build as the girls get more and more excited for the day ahead.
Wedding ceremony at Holy Trinity Church in Eccleshall
It was only a short journey to the church where Tom was waiting nervously inside. The couple had selected Holy Trinity Church in Eccleshall for their ceremony. This is always a church I’ve worked at a few times and the vicar is always very welcoming and happy for me to capture the proceedings. Becky looked breath taking as her dad walked her down the aisle and the ceremony itself was full of wonderful moments and smiles. Following the ceremony Becky and Tom shared some photo moments with their guests before making their way to Aston Marina for the reception.
It was a very bright sunny day, possibly one of the last good days of the year if memory serves me correctly. This meant guests were able to enjoy drinks overlooking the fabulous views of the marina in the last of the summer sun while I captured their all important story telling moments.
Aston Marina wedding photography
Due to the strong sun I decided to do most of the couples portraits in the evening when the light is a little softer. Aston Marina is one of those venues with loads of great variety for wedding photos.
As the evening drew in the only left to do was to get everyone on the dance floor for the first dance, after which the DJ had the dance floor rocking and the party had well and truly began.
All in all I had a blast at Becky and Tom’s wedding and it was a joy to share it with them. If you’re planning a wedding at Aston Marina, or anywhere else, please do get in touch to have a chat about your photography.
