Albright Hussey Wedding Photography | Martha & Ben

A Shropshire Wedding

Martha & Ben’s Albright Hussey wedding has been in the works for oh so long! I originally met this awesome couple back in 2018 when I photographed their friends Kim and Ryan’s wedding. It didn’t feel like too long to wait for Martha and Ben’s wedding when it was originally planned for 2020 but you know when global pandemics hit they seem to slow things down annoyingly. But! We finally got here and if ever there was a time to celebrate then this was it.

There day came and went in the blink of an eye and to say it was full would be an understatement. I was ripped pillar to post photographing Martha getting ready inside the Hussey then shooting down to the aisle to get the ceremony guests and Ben looking nervous. Just to top it off I thought I’d make it harder and following the first dance quite a few people went to watch England play in the quarters of the Euros so I decided to say a little extra to capture those awesome dance floor shots you see.

A Summer Wedding at Albright Hussey

I loved being a part of Martha & Ben’s wedding day at Albright Hussey and would relish the chance to do it again.

My style of wedding photography is strongly built on my incredible extraverted personality and using this to build an incredible relationship with every single one of my couples. All of my couples are different and unique so in turn, so are their weddings and the photographs always lean on their personalities to make them completely different. This is even the case if I was to shoot again at Albright Hussey again. For me and my couples time is everything on their wedding day, you want to spend it with your friends and family and not on a massive photo shoot in a field. So if I can help it I don’t really want you to miss a thing and would love you to remember as much as possible. This caring and relaxed approach to my wedding photography is the reason why so many couples recommend me. They always say it feels like a friend is taking their photographs and not a photographer.

A Little History From This Shropshire Venue

Heading along Shrewsbury Road (A528) in Albrighton you’d be forgiven for missing the private driveway to Ellesmere Road which after a short drive past the rolling Shropshire countryside leads to The Albright Hussey Manor Hotel. Albright Hussey is a historic Shropshire Manor House. Its inception is unknown but it was recorded in the Doomsday book as early as 1292 under the name Elbertone before the name eventually changed to Albright Hussey. Albright referring to the local area of Albrighton and Hussey added to detail the family who lived there.

The current house which stands was built in the Tudor period with the wooden framed section added in 1524 and the stone extension added in 1560. It was also originally a Moat House and like most countryside Moat Houses’ the moat and any notable feature have been filled in. Its history is beyond rich but most notably it was a local battle that garners most of the attention. The Battle of Shrewsbury fought between King Henry VI and the rebellious Harry Hotspur 600 hundred years ago sits directly behind The Hussey. Local visitors can visit the battle museum at Battlefield 1403 which is a part of the Albrighton Estate. There is also a circular walk through the surrounding farmer’s fields.

Now privately owned by the Subbiani family and ran by their son Paul this historic building is well cared for with gentle restoration making it one of the most incredible history-rich wedding venues to marry in within the surrounding area of Shrewsbury and the county of Shropshire.

An Albright Hussey Wedding Day

One of the best things about booking Albright Hussey for your wedding is its inclusivity of all of the little things to make planning your wedding day the easiest of experiences.

You can start your wedding day at The Hussey by booking one of their 26 ensuite bedrooms to stay in the night before your big day. This means you can get ready in historical style

One of the best things about getting married at The Hussey is enjoying your ceremony on the beautiful front lawn surrounded by the rolling Shropshire countryside. For those couples looking to marry within a church, there is the famous Battlefield Church (St Mary Magdalene’s) which was built as a celebration when the battle of 1403 was won.

The Imperial Suite where you’ll enjoy your wedding breakfast can cater for up to 200 of your wedding guests and you can really start the party in the evening by adding an extra chunk and taking the guest list right up to 250. Whatever your guest list number The Hussey will probably have you more than covered.

When it comes to your wedding breakfast The Hussey has you covered once again offering a range of different packages to suit your needs including afternoon tea, a wood-burning pizza oven, hog roasts, bbq, fish ’n’ chips and Italian Arrosticini parties to tie in with the heritage of the owners.

In the evening The Imperial Suite will be transformed into your dance floor whilst the outdoor space exists as a chill-out zone to watch the falling sun as the night draws in.

At the end of the night, your guests will simply roll off the dance floor in The Imperial Suite and into one of the 26 ensuite bedrooms in the hotel. There are no taxis to nearby hotels needed or long waits to “hit the hay” just the simplicity of having your whole day in the capable hands of The Hussey team. The bride and/or groom can then stay in one of the 3 deluxe honeymoon suites on offer.

With the Albright Hussey team hosting weddings for the past 30 years you really are in safe hands here.

Photographing During The Summer

It’s hard to not love being a wedding photographer at Albright Hussey. The place has so much history and it’s incredible that the immediate surrounding area has remained unchanged throughout the years and with its acres of Shropshire countryside fields all around it it’s incredibly tranquil and adds this vibe directly to your wedding photographs. All of this calming aura whilst only being a few miles from the bustling Shrewsbury.

I love the mixture of backdrops for this venue. On one side you have the beautiful Manor House with its various different period extensions, then nearby you have the beautifully landscaped gardens before getting to the almost infinity view of countryside unfolding from all directions. You really do feel like you’re in another world at Albright Hussey.
