A Tern Hill Hall Wedding
When I was asked to be a part of a styled shoot at the gorgeous venue that is Tern Hill Hall, I jumped at the chance! It’s these occasions where local suppliers can come together and showcase what they do, and what they can offer to all those brides to be out there.
Along a gated driveway, Tern Hill Hall is situated in 6 acres of beautiful grounds in Market Drayton, Shropshire. It really does offer the perfect venue to create your own bespoke wedding. Their Orangery can seat from 40 to 150 guests and boasts of large bi-folding doors that open onto the garden which makes for a ceremony that is truly special. The Dining room is ideal for a more intimate wedding ceremony and can seat up to 50 of your nearest and dearest friends and family.
Our vision was to tell the story of a perfect wedding day at Tern Hill Hall starting out with our bride (Tanya) getting her hair and make up done in the gorgeous bridal suite by the amazing Heather Victoria hair and makeup. This room gives so much natural light and is a dream for a photographer! Meanwhile, our groom for the day, Matt was arriving in style, showcasing a stylish Bentley and vintage Austin Healey car followed by a quick relax in the lounge and a whiskey to calm those pew-wedding nerves.
Enter Tanya and a slow walk down the beautiful stairs at Tern Hill covered in amazing flowers with candles at its base. Our wedding took place in the stunning Orangery with its amazing natural light, again a photographers dream! and then it was outside for some portraits of our newlyweds in front of Tern Hill, a freshly mowed lawn is the perfect place for this. The driveway also made for some lovely natural shots of our bride and groom slowly walking away and towards us, plenty of laughs and glances, nothing over forced, just how I like to shoot! oh and even an impromptu lifting up and spinning round of Tanya made for a perfect close to the portraits. Finally, our happy couple made their exit, hands and bouquet in the air, leaving in the fabulous Austin Healey!
A quick stop for lunch and it was back into the bridal suite for some more portraits of Tanya showcasing another gorgeous dress by Iris and Belles. It was now we had a little fun and took some shots using the grand mirror in the room and even some shots in the bath to close our amazing day.
