A few Saturdays back I had the pleasure of photographing Anna and Mark’s fantastic wedding at Hampton Manor in Solihull, West Midlands. The day started off with the usual bridal preparations with all the girls busy getting their make up done by the professional make up artist. I have to say it was great to see so many familiar faces, I photographed Anna’s sister’s wedding back in 2011 which you can view here, also guests at the wedding were Dan and Kerry who I photographed also in 2011 which you can see here .

So everyone really was relaxed around me and Edd who was second shooting for the day, with it being nearly time for the ceremony I quickly popped out to get some shots of Mark and the grooms men. Time to get back to the bride as she walked down the elegant stairs with her dad and oh boy she looked stunning indeed.  With a fantastic ceremony with some nice little touches it was time for everybody to go outside for drinks and canapés and enjoy the beautiful sunny day in the Hampton Manor grounds.  I took Mark and Anna away for a walk around the grounds for a  short photo shoot, we slipped back without any one knowing we were gone.

Today the speeches are after the wedding breakfast, so we had time to back up and refresh ourselves in time for the speeches, and not long after cutting of the cake and the first dance.

For me this is the first time photographing a wedding at Hampton Manor, what a fantastic wedding venue to get married in, I would love to be able to work here again. If you’re looking for a West Midlands Wedding Photographer then please get in touch here
