Stirk House Wedding Photographer | Jessica & Liam



Well, well, well, where do I start with this Stirk House wedding. Myself and Jessica met many years ago when I used to do this photography thing on the side. She actually used to be my boss and a damn good one she was. I have so many fond memories of my time working for her and I grew so much as a person whilst under her leadership. You could possibly say I’d be missing some parts of my business mindset had I not encountered Jessica and her non traditional leadership ways.

After leaving I continued to keep in touch often still meeting up even with the 100 mile round trip she or I had to take. Upon finding out she was engaged to be married I knew it was going to be an incredible day. No stone would be left unturned and she would listen to everyone to pull in ideas from every corner and make this the most inclusive wedding there was. Luckily enough I was chosen to photograph this special day. I did also have an invite but as a wedding photographer you rarely find yourself on the other side of the lens as your friends are usually your number one fans. Saying they’ll only book you and no one else so what’s a guy to do?

What a beautiful venue we were hosted by. A Stirk House wedding is super organised, super slick and super awesome to shoot at. The whole day was hosted here which was fantastic as we didn’t have to go anywhere else as the venue had it all covered. We started in the Bridal suite with the prep for the day before having the arrival of the groomsmen with the rest of the guests. The main attraction was most definitely Dave the Toastmaster. A well organised Toastmaster can make all the difference. From the start of the day to the end he only aided my photographs mostly by revving the guests up. Check out the photograph of him standing behind Jessica and Liam after their entry to the wedding breakfast.

This wedding meant so much to me and I’m super pleased with the photographs. As Jessica put it herself “having you hear has enabled me to just be myself”, couldn’t of said it better myself.
