St Johns Church And The Old School House Wedding Photography

Saturday 5th August saw us providing the professional wedding photography for Jason and Steph on their wedding day. The wedding ceremony was taking place at St Johns Church in the Staffordshire town of Burntwood, while the wedding reception was at The Old School House in Weeford, just outside Lichfield.

We arrived at 9am to the Brownhills home of the parents of Steph to start her bridal preparation photography. The whole bridal party was amazingly calm as their hair and make-up was done in preparation for the big day ahead. We photographed the whole morning as Steph, her three bridesmaids, flower girl and parents all got ready for the wedding.

The three bridesmaids first got into their green full length bridesmaid dresses, before Steph was laced into her gorgeous strapless wedding dress, all looking beautiful, and happy to pose for our cameras.

We now made our way over to Burntwood to arrive at St John Church before bridegroom Jason. Right on time Jason, along with his groomsmen arrived in a matching pair of classic Cortina cars. Jason was very visibly nervous as he greeted the wedding guests that had now started to arrive. The vicar now ushered the wedding congregation into the church as the bridesmaids arrived in one of the Cortina cars.  A few minutes later a 1967 Ford Mustang been used as the wedding car arrived outside the wedding venue containing Steph and Keith, her very proud father who was giving her hand in marriage. The whole arrival was photographed for the inclusion into the couples wedding album, before the bridal party, along with Steph and Keith made their way into the church.

The wedding ceremony went perfectly, all of the hymns were played in church by a live band creating an atmosphere that was thoroughly enjoyed by the wedding congregation. Jason and Steph took their vows during the ceremony and were soon officially husband and wife.

Once the ceremony was over the newlyweds led the congregation into the church foyer, but sadly outside there was torrential rain and thunder. It was decided to leave the official wedding photographs for now, and for everyone to make their way over to The Old School House in Weeford for the wedding reception.

Shortly after everyone had arrived at The Old School House the rain eased of and allowed us to take photographs of the newlywed couple with their wedding cars.

It was now time for everyone to enjoy a drink from the bar and congratulate Jason and Steph as well as enjoy an ice cream from the ice cream bike that had been arranged for the wedding guests.

After a short while of everyone relaxing the whole wedding congregation was treated to a three course wedding breakfast, before the very entertaining traditional speeches from the top table.

The weather had now totally changed, and the sun was shining, so we now started the traditional wedding photographs of the various wedding groups in the stunning grounds of The Old School House, before spending a short while alone with Jason and Steph to photograph them in some romantic wedding portraits.

Evening guests had now started to arrive and congratulate the newlyweds while enjoying a drink with each other in a great relaxed atmosphere.

At around 9pm the happy couple were called on to the dance floor to perform the traditional cake cutting ceremony, before performing their official first dance in front of all of their loved ones.

The party now started to get into full swing, and we had taken all of the wedding photographs that we could so we said our goodbyes and left the party to continue well into the night.

We would like to thank Jason and Steph for choosing Glyn T Jones Photography to photograph their wedding day, we would also like to wish them a very long, very happy, and very healthy life together as husband and wife.
