A Spring wedding at Pendrell Hall
A few weeks ago I shot the awesome wedding of Emily and Dan. They chose to get married at Pendrell Hall in Codsall Wood in Staffordshire. it’s always a joy going back to Pendrell Hall to photograph weddings. I’m pleased to be a recommended photographer and it’s an amazing place that I adore working at.
Love is Enough
I always start the day by capturing the bride getting ready. Emily began her preparations in the Love is Enough suite. I really enjoy shooting bridal prep as it gives you a chance to get to know the bridal party a little better and get a feel for the day ahead. Dan was at The pendrell Arms having a beer with his family and friends and preparing himself for the ceremony.
Weddings at Pendrell Hall
The ceremony was held in The Morning Room at Pendrell which has a warm intimate feel. It was the perfect setting for Emily and Dan to say their wedding vows and tie the knot. I couldn’t ask for a better job than being a Staffordshire wedding photographer and ceremonies like this one remind me why I do what I do.
The reception was a great success and everyone had a smile on their face. The venue served drinks and everyone had a fabulous time. I mingled around the wedding party capturing the guests candidly whilst they enjoyed their drinks. Getting married in Spring can sometimes be a challenge due to the weather. Whilst we had to dodge a few showers we were able to shoot outside enough to capture some great portraits.
Once the reception was over the meal began and then once that was finished it was time for the speeches. It’s a difficult job for a wedding photographer to photograph speeches, because it’s all about the words, so you have to look for the emotions being reflected in the way people react to the words to tell the story. That said it wasn’t a too hard job at Emily and Dan’s wedding, the speakers were fantastic and there were plenty of laughs.
Fire Pit Glade
Later into the evening we nipped outside for a few evening shots around the new Fire Pit glade at Pendrell. This is a stunning clearing in the woods surrounded by fairy lights with a fire pit.
The day ended with Emily, Dan and their guests rocking the dance floor to their DJ. I think you’ll agree from the photos that these guys like to party!
