Somerford Hall Wedding Photography Of Lee And Vicky

Sunday 4th September saw us working at the beautiful Somerford Hall in Brewood Staffordshire to provide the official wedding photography for Lee and Vicky. Somerford Hall is a Georgian mansion set in 100 acres of landscaped parkland, this makes it a truly stunning Staffordshire wedding venue.

We arrived at the Hednesford home of the parents of Vicky to capture the first part of her bridal preparation. Here we photographed as Vicky and her mom had their make-up professionally applied by the very talented Helen Pearson. The house was very calm and organised with no sign of any pre-wedding nerves showing through.

Once the make-up had been expertly applied, we, along with the bridal party made our way to Somerford Hall. This was where Vicky and her five bridesmaids were going to be getting dressed into their wedding gowns ready for the wedding ceremony. We left the bridal party in the bridal suite to finish their bridal preparation, while we photographed the various rooms of Somerford Hall that would be used for the wedding.

We were called back up to the bridal suite to photograph Vicky being laced into her Disney themed wedding dress by her mom. Vicky looked absolutely amazing, a true fairy tale bride.

After photographing the bridesmaids, both alone, and with the beautiful looking Vicky, we again left them alone while we went to photograph Lee and his groomsmen that had now arrived. Lee and his best man were clearly very nervous, but were happy to pose for our cameras in, and around the various locations of Somerford Hall.

It was fast approaching 2pm, so we went back into the bridal suite to photograph the very emotional time as the father of Vicky saw her for the first time dressed in her wedding dress. The bridal party now made its way down the glorious staircase of Somerford Hall, this made for some truly stunning wedding photographs for Lee and Vicky to display in their wedding album to forever cherish.

The five bridesmaids entered the Somerford Halls Drawing Room, followed by Vicky along with her very proud looking father for the marriage ceremony to take place. The ceremony was a lovely service that went off without a hitch. Lee and Vicky were soon officially named as husband and wife, and after signing the wedding register, led the way out of the ceremony room where drinks were waiting for all of the wedding guests.

It was now time for the traditional wedding photography to take place, the main group shot was captured from an overhead window in the bridal suite, before we broke everything down into the smaller family groups, as well as the traditional wedding photographs of the bridal party and the groomsmen.

It was now time for us to spend some time alone with the newlyweds to photograph their romantic wedding portraits for them to remember their special day. As a wedding photographer you are spoilt for locations for this purpose at Somerford Hall, it really is a stunning wedding venue. We started around the back gardens first, and made use of the venues new garden bandstand.

Once all of the official wedding photography had been captured the wedding congregation made their way into the venues Ballroom for the traditional Speeches, and the wedding breakfast to take place. Once that everyone had been photographed at the top table we left the wedding congregation to enjoy their afternoon.

We returned to Somerford Hall again at around 8pm to photograph Lee and Vicky as they cut their three tier wedding cake, before taking to the dance floor to perform a very enthusiastic first dance together as husband and wife. It was now time for us to leave as the party really started and was set to continue well into the night.
