Barnsley House is one of those places the you feel completely at home when you walk through the door. Designed by Rosemary Verey which is worth a day out in its own right, stunning stately home.

Cripps Barn Wedding Venue

We met Sean and the guys ( Martin, Ben & Luke) at the Barn who appeared to be super relaxed while enjoying some refreshments. Most of the family and friends arrived and enjoyed the cozy and warm atmosphere inside while we left the fresh cold wind outside. For us it was great to see some of our friends from previous weddings that we have photographed they just make us feel so welcome. Thank you every one with special mentions to Paul & Laurie, Julie & Mark not forgetting Christine & Mark Preece for just being you.

Orchardleigh Estate Wedding Katie & James

The Orangery at Orchardleigh Estate in Somerset

Orchardleigh Estate Somerset Wedding Ceremony

Quote ” Our enchanting Walled Garden provides a truly magical setting to say ‘I Do; ( Orchardleigh Estate Somerset Weddings) what a truly wonderful setting to marry your best friend. Katie & James could not have a chosen a more fitting venue for their wedding day. The morning started with a little misty rain but once the clouds moved on and cleared the sun shone down on us all for the rest of the day, phew blue sky’s for all. The walled Garden and the Orangery offers a more modern backdrop to the Estate comes complete with an it Italian feel garden which you can see in the picture above.  We met Katie and the girls, Emma, Alice and Jenny, in the Garden house which is a 5 Bedroom family house and perfect for those getting ready and detail shots with plenty of room for all those dresses, shoes and flowers along with Make up artists and Hairdressers. It makes my life as a wedding photographer so much easier to have everyone in the same place to take some lovely shots. James and the boys were all waiting for us in the courtyard so we take some shots of them all individually and as a group. The courtyard enjoys a stunning entrance and Bell Tower with a large carriage archway complete with large doors, this made a perfect set for a grand group shot of all the lads ( James, David, Tim, Pete, and Rich) in their dark blue suits and tan shoes.  Katie & James were married in the Italian Garden which is all outside the and with the weather is was just perfect. After the fun (James) and emotional ceremony, all the guests piles outside to congratulate the happy couple before we moved onto the group shots. I have to say Orchardleigh Estate is truly wonderful venue there are so many stunning shots to be take, I have to say I loved being a wedding photographer at Orchardleigh Estate.

The Mill Barns Wedding Photography Aimee & Stuart

The Mill Barns Wedding

The Mill Barns Wedding in Alveley. Aimee & Stuarts wedding was only the fourth wedding to be held at The Mill Barns which is an EXCLUSIVE USE Waterfront Barn Wedding Venue in the West Midlands with Luxury Accommodation, offering NO CORKAGE and OUTDOOR WEDDINGS.

A wonderful traditional wedding.

Those of you who are not so familiar with The Mill Barns location, Alveley is a small village in the Severn Valley, Shropshire about 11 miles south-southeast of Bridgnorth. It is in the civil parish of Alveley and Romsley. The church in Alveley “St Mary’s is just a 5 minute drive away for those who prefer a more traditional start to a wedding day. In the past we have photographed many weddings at the former Mill Hotel which was very popular until it was sadly destroyed by fire some years ago. The Mill Barns exclusive use waterfront barn wedding venue is just so unique it is attracting couples from all over the country. No brida or groom preperations where required so our day started with a visit to St Mary’s Church in Alveley to take shots of  details and of course the church. Jayne & Richard Yarrington are very much involved with the local church and was keen for me to visit, Jayne kept me in order for most of the day ( Jayne love you to bits)  Aimee decided to walk the 10 min journey to the church from her parents home, we enjoyed some amazing reactions from locals as it is not often you see a Bride with her bridesmaids, ( Elinah, Sian,& Amy) Sian is the photo bomber!! and parents walking through a village to the church, and of course me trying to keep one step ahead. Rev Neil Dunlop was waiting patiently at the church door waiting for Aimee and her entourage  to arrive. After the ceremony it was off to the Mill Barns to celebrate and party. “Donna” wedding manager welcomed us all in the the barn with loads of champagne to refresh the couple. A huge thank must go to Aimee & Stuart  and everyone who made the day so special. A really special thank you to Rev : Neil Dunlop for being so welcoming and great to work with. Here is a selection of photographs from Aimee & Stuarts wedding day. Congratulations guys wishing you a fabulous life together. Jon & Max xx

Stanbrook Abbey Wedding with Matt & Chris

Stanbrook Abbey Wedding

Stanbrook Abbey wedding with Matt & Chris. We enjoy so much working at Stanbrook Abbey, which a part of the Handpicked hotels group feels like a second home for us Worcester wedding photographers. The Great Hall is quite something to behold and when you walk into the vast hall you can feel the atmosphere therein, I guess to celebrate your wedding day in the Great Hall must be quite overwhelming. Stanbrook Abbey was originally built as a contemplative house for Benedictine nuns and since 2010 it has been extended and converted into a hotel and events venue. Matt & Chris both work in London but lived locally in Bromsgrove & Redditch and met in a local town. We have worked in the Callow hall many times however this was the first time we have enjoyed tree’s decorating the hall, truly stunning to see the bright green leaves against the warm yellow of Stanbrook’s carved wood interior. The day started with bright sunshine which stayed with us most of the day and was so welcome. We would like to thank everyone who attended Matt & Chris wedding day for making us feel so welcome. Here is a small selection of Matt & Chris epic day. Congratulations guys and thank you for allowing us to share your wedding day. Jon & Max xx  To see more images from the day please ask Matt & Chris for further details. Prints and files can be purchased directly from the online gallery.

I had a little sip… Simon was all ready and waiting for us to take some pre-ceremony shots with Chris Beech Simon’s bestman in the gardens of the Granary.

Wedding Photographers in Worcester

Sophie & Shaun overlooking the lake at Patshull Park

Patshull Park Hotel Wedding with Sophie and Shaun.  May 2016I was delighted to be asked to photograph Sophie & Shaun’s wedding day, and looking back it only seems just like yesterday and how time flies. The weather was super kind to us which made for a lovely wedding day. We started with the boys at Sophie & Shaun’s home where we all admired the manicured front garden which must be the envy of their neighbours and me included, amazing. The lovingly polished Audi which looked pretty cool too. Sophie was enjoying her bridal preps with Nadine MUA (Givenchy) at her parents home just a few minutes away, while mum, dad and Sasha ( Brides Sister) where all excited and enjoying the moment.

Here are some words from Sophie regarding her wedding day Journey.

HOW DID YOU BOTH MEET? Shaun and his family moved into the street opposite to where I lived and grew up back in 2006, Initially we did not speak to each other, just a wave! some two years after Shaun moved in we finally started talking to each other and our love story began… WHAT WAS THE PROPOSAL LIKE? Very romantic. We were in the Dominican Republic celebrating my Birthday. Shaun walked me down to the waterfront by the beach and popped the question.

HOW DID YOU FIND WEDDING PLANNING? Brilliant! We enjoyed every minute of it. It was lovely putting all our idea’s together and finally seeing it all piece together on the day. Don’t stress enjoy the moment before your wedding day arrives.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING VENUE? Patshull Park Hotel The location and setting looking out over the lake. It was beautiful. WHAT IS GOING TO BE YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF THE DAY? When we say our vows and are declared Husband and Wife.
