I was delighted when my friends Tim and Janna asked me to be their Old Downton Lodge wedding photographer as this was going to be a gorgeous and relaxed wedding accompanied by close friends and family.  I’ve been personal friends with these two for quite some time now, first meeting Tim in the gym when he had recently moved to Ludlow.  Tim joined me in most social activities which mainly dominated around pub life, and joining the pool team I played in. We also used to venture somewhere new each New Years Eve for the night,  this is where Tim met Janna through some mutual friends and the rest as they say is history.

Old Downton Lodge Wedding, Shropshire

The day started at Old Downton Lodge and finished at Ludlow Brewery.  Old Downton Lodge is a hidden gem which is right on the borders of Shropshire, Downton on the Rock is it’s location and only a a 20 minute drive or so. Also a fantastic chef and restaurant.  For more information about this cracking location check out the website here.  This is where Janna and her bridesmaids got ready, but it was the scene of a really lovely and relaxed wedding.  Amy from Riverside Beauty was on make up duty and doing a fantastic job as usual, you can get in touch with her here if you’re looking for a make up artist. The morning was so relaxed, Tim was wondering around the venue meeting guests as they arrived.  I have to say it’s such an honour being a bigger part of my friends wedding than just enjoying the day as a guest but actually capturing it in images and giving them special memories of the day.

It was only a short walk from the bridal suite to the wedding ceremony, which was looking amazing and decorated by Janna herself with some help of course.  After the service it was time for drinks and canapés  on the front lawn overlooking the Shropshire Hills. Tim and Janna were having the evening reception back in Ludlow at Ludlow Brewery.  I have to say they got lucky with the weather as it was beautiful, considering it was forecast to rain all day.

Ludlow Brewery Wedding Photography

After the family shots and some time enjoying the the grounds at Old Downton Lodge it was time to make our way back to Ludlow for the evening reception at Ludlow Brewery. Tim and Janna  had put on a vintage bus for everyone to travel back in.  The rest of the evening was just one big party with speeches followed with a hog roast and not forgetting the pork pie cake!  After the speeches I was told to put my camera away and to enjoy the rest of the evening.
