A Wedding at Sandon Hall | Sophie & Lee
Sophie and Lee tied the knot in beautiful grounds for a wonderful Sandon Hall wedding in Stafford, Staffordshire. After seeing me shake my moves at their friends wedding they decided I was the right person for the job to capture their dream day. We met last year catching up on the gap in our stories since the wedding we both attended in May 2016.
As soon as they mentioned their wedding would be at Sandon Hall I was super excited. As I have mentioned previously I really enjoy this venue. Holding a dear place in my photography heart as Sandon Hall is somewhere I tend to revisit every year or so. It’s quirky charm and unique characteristics sure do separate it from the similar venues in the area. It’s expansive grounds and rooms give it endless possibilities.
The day was full of excitement and entertainment featuring a mock “Through the Key Hole” from the Bestman which went down a storm. The service was a bit of tear jerker with even me welling up and then when the string quartet started to play Pure Imagination from one of my all time favourite films, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, well I was gone. We had a bit of a wreck with the weather as it poured down for the majority of the day, but we held out hoping for those long spring days to save us which they did. We managed to slip out just after Wedding Breakfast. Even though we couldn’t get outside originally it was lovely to get some different shots inside Sandon Hall and be creative with all it has to offer.
Lee & Sophie were a super fun couple and really wanted their photographs to represent this. For this reason I chose to feature more personality portrayal shots than other shots. I absolutely love the raw emotion they displayed on the day and I think my relaxed vibe captured it ever so well
The night ended with a brilliant set from Agent Smith, a wedding Rock & Pop band from Manchester. Probably the most interactive and crowd warming band I’ve ever seen. They managed to get everyone up on the dance floor to join the bride and groom bustin’ some moves out. There is just something about a Sandon Hall wedding which sure fancies me shaking my booty.
I photograph weddings all over the UK. So wherever you are, give me a shout.
