Slaters Country Inn Wedding Photography | Laura & Dan
A Staffordshire Wedding
Laura has been recommending me as a wedding photographer for as long as I can remember so when it came to her own wedding at Slaters Country Inn she wasted no time letting me know I was the guy for the job.
I have a lot of respect for Laura and Dan. They had ample time to panic and move their Slaters wedding out of the firing line of Covid but they stuck to their guns and saw their big day in despite the restrictions. I respect them even more as despite the constant downpour on their wedding day they really made the most out of it and pushed themselves to the max to get some incredible photography to remember the day and I can’t fault them there.
A Spring Wedding at Slaters Country Inn
I loved being a part of Laura & Dan’s wedding day at Slaters Country Inn and would relish the chance to do it again.
My style of wedding photography is strongly built on my incredibly 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 Slaters Country Inn 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 photoshoot 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.

Slaters Country Inn is such a beautiful place which I loved photographing. I would love to return so why not give me a shout if you’re planning your own Slaters Country Inn wedding?
A Little History From This Staffordshire Venue
Originally an 18th-century working farm, Slaters Country Inn is now a super busy Staffordshire wedding venue and hotel. Set in the rolling Staffordshire countryside landscape you feel completely lost whilst actually only being 10 minutes from Junction 15 of the M6.
The hotel also has Slaters Shopping and Craft Village sitting directly next to it where loads of independent business’ operate including wedding suppliers like Elegance Bridal, Elegance Weddings, GENTS Formal Wear and Always and Forever Cars so whilst you’re looking around Slaters and considering it as a wedding venue you can nip into the Craft Village and find your dress, suits or decorator for the day.
A Slaters Country Inn Wedding Day
With hotel rooms available onsite you can really make a day of it at Slaters. Most of my couples choose to get ready here in the morning which makes the journey to the
Licensed to provide ceremonies in their bespoke Wedding House means you can have your entire wedding day at Slaters without any fuss over changing a room over. The Wedding House is a wide space meaning your family and friends can all be really close and don’t get lost sitting 20 rows back. When it comes to walking the aisle you can do this predominantly outdoors basking in the sunshine before reaching the shelter of the wedding house and your partner. If the weather is appropriate then you can also marry within the wooden bandstand in the private gardens.
Your drinks reception will then follow within the bar area or around the outdoor wooden bar area in the private gardens.
Slaters onsite Granary Restaurant which is open daily means they aren’t new to creating delicious meals and when it comes to providing a wedding breakfast they’re able to use their current kitchen and team to just up their usual workload and deliver exceptional results all formed from local fresh produce and served with real Ales and fine wines.
Photographing During The Spring
I love shooting at Slaters Country Inn. It really is a no-fuss wedding venue as the space is just the right size for what it needs so there isn’t anyone getting lost in too many rooms just a carefully managed selection of spaces to guide your guests from ceremony to the drinks reception to wedding breakfast to dance floor and then off to bed.
When it comes to shooting couples portraits there are some lovely views within walking distance of Slaters but if a couple wants to take it a step further then I always recommend we visit the gorgeous village of Maer just 5 minutes down the road where anciently beautiful carved stone bridges and walls protrude out of the country landscape as if they were almost formed by the earth itself.
