Sophie and Matt got married initially in New York City late last year surrounded by their close family and I can only imagine what an amazing experience that was and definitely one for my bucket list of photography jobs!
This was followed up earlier this year at The Barns, just on the edge of Cannock Chase in Staffordshire on a gorgeous winters day where they had their 2nd marriage ceremony and party, this time celebrated with lots more family and friends! The Barns serves the perfect intimate setting for a wedding and with Cannock Chase close by for those beautiful portraits, its a winner!
Rain was falling as I arrived at the venue for bridal prep but Sophie, her bridesmaids and parents were all in great spirits enjoying plenty of laughs and a spot of bubbly whilst getting ready for the big day. Thankfully as the ceremony approached, a few shots of the boys getting ready and the clouds cleared.. it was blue skies for the rest of the day. Perfect.
Following a beautiful ceremony filled with lovely personal touches, it was outside to the front of the Barns with its brick work, sage door and tractor serving a perfect backdrop for some group portraits. It was by now I really wanted to go for a walk on Cannock chase and luckily both Sophie and Matt are outdoors people who love walking in their spare time. Sophie donned her wellies and we braved the chilly but sunny skies got some beautiful portraits of the two of them.
Sophie and Matt have shared kind words with me, thank you both so much for a great day and such nice feedback.
“Thank you for our beautiful wedding photographs! You have been a pleasure to work with & the photo’s are stunning! we can’t thank you enough! and we willl highly recommend you to friends and family”
