Kirsty and Johns early summer wedding at Pendrell Hall
Kirsty and John were married a few weeks ago and I had the pleasure of being their wedding photographer. They celebrated their wedding at Pendrell Hall situated outside Codsall Wood in Staffordshire. I’m proud to be Pendrell Halls Dream Team photographer, so its always great to be back. I know the venue well and the staff are all so lovely, its like a home from home. Kirsty and John are a lovely couple who were really into each other, I was very fortunate to photograph their wedding at a gorgeous venue like Pendrell Hall.
I received this wonderful review from Kirstys mum:
"Cris was so easy going and friendly during the consultation, he put us all at ease and made us all feel very welcome. He showed us his portfolio, which was amazing, and we all loved his documentary style of photography. We didn't want boring, stuffy posed photographs. We wanted relaxed and informal which is exactly what we got. We wanted the guests to be relaxed and have a great day and not be herded round like cattle to have millions of group photographs. Cris captured the day beautifully and looking at the photographs makes you relive the day over and over again. We can't praise Cris enough for making the day even more special than it already was. Cris seemed to be everywhere, but not in the way. He was like a little stealth ninja just popping up out of nowhere, I kept thinking he was a guest !!! If you are after a more relaxed style of photography then Cris is your man, he was fab and i can't thank him enough for professionalism, his beautiful photographs and most of all the special memories. Thank you Cris"
Getting ready for the big day
The day began with me photographing John who was getting ready in The Lodge, making himself look very dapper. John was donning his suit and helping to get their son ready. Kirsty got ready in the preparation suite, Love is enough. As the makeup was applied and everyones hair was finished off I photographed the small details and the developing story. It was extremely emotional when Kirstys dad came in to see her in the dress fo the first time.
Wedding ceremony at Pendrell Hall
The Morning room is Pendrell Hall’s main ceremony room. A beautiful wood panelled room makes the perfect setting for an indoor ceremony. Family and friends witnessed Kirsty and John exchange vows in an emotional ceremony.
Pendrell Hall wedding photography
After the ceremony Kirsty and John got covered in confetti before spending time mingling with their guests. We spent a little time taking photos in the wonderful gardens around Pendrell.
Everyone love a good Summer wedding, and I’m no exception. The sun came out and shone all day. Pendrell is a great venue whatever the weather, but its always good to be outside as much as possible.
After such an emotion filled day I was intrigued to see what the speeches might bring, and they didn’t disappoint. The couples you daughter did a speech and then sang a song, such extraordinary courage from someone so young.
The only left to do was to get everyone on the dance floor and rock out to the tunes coming from the DJ Wedding sounds. A fantastic day was had by all.
