Beautiful Staffordshire Wedding.
Kate and Mike were married in Staffordshire’s incredible Sandon Hall mansion and gardens. The wedding ceremony was held in the rich oak-panelled Library, with Ray Mytton playing classical guitar as she walked down the aisle towards Mike – this led to some wonderful photographs. Later the weather really wasn’t on our side, and the guests unfortunately couldn’t enjoy the magnificent formal gardens the estate had to offer. Instead the reception was moved through to the equally lovely period conservatory (which must have been the old orangery) which stayed bright and airy.
Both Kate and Mike looked stunning, the flat light and vintage leica lenses made for some of my best wedding portraits yet! (take a look below) I always love to try and get some relaxed formal portraits at some point during the wedding as couples rarely go to more effort than this day in making themselves looks so amazing. Mike’s “Duck Spotter” pin on the tweed jacket really took his outfit to another level – loved it!
The evening’s music was provided again by Ray Mytton, Kate’s Dad (who also provided the very tasty Ales from “Ma Pardoe’s”) and Uncle (playing as The Dribblers) and Soesen Eden DJing into the night The Musery… once the dancing was done, we all headed to the Swan Hotel (Stafford) where celebrations continued into the early hours!
Congratulations guys, wishing you all the happiness in your future!!
