I always enjoy shooting wedding photography at Moor Hall because it a gorgeous wedding venue set in stunning grounds. Kerry and Paul chose a hotel that has a rich history and in Tudor times played host to Henry VIII (Now there was a man who liked a wedding!) But that’s enough about wedding photography at Moor Hall. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start at the beginning.
On the day I arrived early at Kerry’s house to catch up with her and her bridal party as they made their preparations. Kerry was in good spirits and good hands with her attentive bridesmaids helping her with her final preparations. Kerry looked amazing in a fitted bodice dress with intricate lace detail that kicked out at the bottom giving her a great silhouette in my portrait shots.
For the ceremony Kerry and Paul chose the pretty Holy Trinity Church at Sutton Coldfield. This Grade I listed church has a 700 year history and was the perfect choice for their intimate and traditional wedding service. After a lovely service I took some group shots of Kerry and Paul with their bridesmaids (who looked beautiful) and Paul’s grooms party (loved the blue suits)
Everybody then headed to the reception. I never tire of approaching Moor Hall. The long tree-lined drive always give you an air of excitement. Kerry, Paul and their guests were greeted with a drinks reception which gave me the chance to take some more shots, some formal and some casual!
I also took the chance to grab a few shots of Moor Hall’s charter suite all dressed and ready for the reception. The charter suite is an elegant spacious room and Kerry and Paul had dressed the room in elegant white linen with lilies at each table. It gave the room a real feeling of understated glamour.
After a sumptuous wedding breakfast, the cutting of the cake (the lights around the cake were a great touch!) and some very well received speeches I whisked everybody outside for a group shot set in the stunning grounds of Moor House, catching the last of the daylight. I then quickly took Kerry and Paul for some romantic portrait shots (my favourite being the ones in the pretty pergoda)
We then re-joined everybody inside for the first dance, though Kerry and Paul weren’t alone on the dancefloor for long. Their friends and family were definitely up for a dance, and it was these shots of them all smiling and laughing on the dancefloor that I chose to close the story of Kerry and Paul’s wedding day.
A lovely stylish wedding full of love and laughter. Congratulations to Kerry and Paul for getting married, and thank you for allowing me to provide your wedding photography at Moor Hall on your special day. I hope my images will help you to relive your day again and again for many years to come.
