Moddershall Oaks Wedding Photographer
I love living in Stoke-on-Trent as I get to be a Moddershall Oaks wedding photographer quite often.
Cera and I have visited the Moddershall Oaks Spa many times over the years and although it’s just 15 minutes from junction 15 of the M6 motorway it feels like you’re in the middle of a woodland oasis as you kick back and relax with luxurious spa facilities.
Our favourite time of year to experience the spa is in the winter under a clear night sky whilst we keep warm in the outdoor heated vitality spa pool. Once we’re all pampered we love to eat in the award-winning restaurant on-site where top chefs produce some of the most incredible food in Staffordshire. We even stayed over one year to treat ourselves to the full experience. I was more relaxed than I’d ever been as I slept like a baby in their tailor-made on-site suites only to be awoken by the sounds of the countryside.
Multiple Weddings from Moddershall Oaks
Living just 10 minutes from Moddershall Oaks I’m a favourite when couples are searching for a wedding photographer. These spa weddings are always fun and the expert team at Moddershall know just how to run a relaxed wedding which doesn’t miss a beat.
My style of wedding photography is built on a great relationship with my couples. All of my weddings are different and unique; even those at the same venue like Moddershall Oaks. The time on your wedding day is really important to me. So if I can help it I don’t really want you to miss a thing on your wedding day 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.
Melissa & Ed’s Kind Words
“He was never intrusive and managed to gather family and friends together with ease for those all important group shots. Many of our guests commented on how brilliant he was.”

Luxury Spa Wedding Venue

Guests can enjoy evening or overnight stay packages booked direct through the spa. The spa boasts a vast amount of treatment options but if this is not your cup of tea then you can enjoy either of two spa areas.
The indoor facilities have a large swimming pool with heated loungers to keep warm after a dip. A state of the art hydrotherapy pool gives your body a full release or the more simple Jacuzzi seats provide the classic spa feel. A steam room is also located at pool side.
At the top of the retreat is a relaxation room which is just a short walk from the suites. This opens out on to the outdoor heated vitality spa pool which is one of the main spa boasts as you sit taking in the countryside and a beautiful double sided wood burner. A sauna is also located outdoors and deck chairs provide a place to lie in the sun on those warmer days and a sauna is also located.
The on-site award winning restaurant offers vibrant food cooked by top chef with organic ingredients which are mouth “wateringly” tasty. If you fancy escaping the estate there are several fantastic gastro pubs nearby including The Black Inn just minutes away.
The newest addition to Moddershall Oaks is MADE which is a large fitness and wellness centre based on site. Whether it’s a gym or a yoga lesson by the private lake you’re after MADE has a lot to offer making Moddershall Oaks the complete package for a wellbeing revival.
Maybe a spa isn’t your vibe though? Well there’s on site tennis courts and bicycles to hire to explore the local woodland and nearby countryside.
Whatever it is you’re after, Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat has probably got it.
If you want to explore the local area then there is tons to do and see including visiting the quaint market town of Stone, heading to the awarding winning Italian Gardens at the Trentham Estate or maybe diving into the local pottery scene is your thing, well if that’s the case the world renowned World of Wedgwood sits right on the doorstep of Moddershall.
The Venue at Moddershall
Moddershall Oaks’ wedding venue is called just that, The Venue. It offers an air of exclusivity as it sits at the rear of the retreat with it’s own private car park and amenities.
Outdoor or indoor wedding ceremonies are great at Moddershall Oaks. If you’re going to say “I do” in Winter or on a breezier day then the team can simply switch your outdoor service to an indoor one if the weather turns foul.
Outdoor services are really one of the main selling points though as you say your vows beneath a beautiful oak pagoda by the picturesque private lake surrounded by woodland, Modershall’s famous huge oak tree and all your beautiful guests.
After you’ve signed the register and thrown the confetti then the compact but spacious layout of the venue means you can either enjoy the indoor space around the bar or sit outside in the tranquil countryside with an ice cold cocktail.
The function space at The Venue is multi adaptable with sliding walls which can fit a range of wedding day guest numbers. In the evening the room opens out to give you one big nice naturally flowing space to enjoy all of the evening festivities like the first dance and the official cake cut.
If you just so happen to be getting ready at Moddershall in the morning then you can request to make use of The Snug which is Moddershall’s beauty room with enough room to fit even the largest bridal party in.
Photography Amongst a Gorgeous Private Estate
Being a Moddershall Oaks wedding photographer is a really great job. The venue has almost been designed with photography and photos in mind.
Beautiful skylights flood the main function space with natural light meaning I can quite often shoot without flash well into the evening during the lighter seasons.
Artificial Grass outside gives a great dry place sheltered from the sun by the woodland for those all important traditional family portraits. Continuing with a short walk around the private lake by a stone path you can really let your wedding dress down and display it in all it’s glory for the whole of the day.
There are multiple small and large photograph opportunities for natural wedding portraits with benches, a small garden, the woodland and the pontoon all less than a minutes work from The Venue.
The whole venue breathes an air of luxurious spa with furnishings and fittings which build great foreground and backgrounds to photographs.
At night the outdoors change into a woodland fairytale with up-lighters and fairy lights littering the space. I love creating magical creative wedding photos at night at Moddershall Oaks. With being amongst the countryside the contrast being light and dark in your photographs is much larger so portraits in the evening are a must.
