Photograph of Standon Hall, Staffordshire wedding venue

Earlier this year I was contacted by Jo from Iris and Belles bridal boutique, about doing a styled shoot. Being honest, these only work well if the right people are involved and everyone is on the same page with the concept. When I first met Jo we got on and shared a laugh, so that was one box ticked. Her idea was to have a country theme to the shoot, which was also another tick. Being a wedding photographer living in Staffordshire I’m very lucky, as I have a lot of beautiful countryside right on my door step and I don’t have to walk very far before I’m in a field.

The lovely town of Eccleshall is just five minutes down the road, which is where Iris and Belles can be found, along with Buttercups and Daises – a florist run by (another) Jo.

I love getting involved with local suppliers and creating something together. It’s also great to have a local network of talented people I can also recommend to couples who are planning a Staffordshire wedding.

Jo not only provided flowers for the shoot but she also gave us the stunning location to hold it. Standon Hall. – Staffordshire’s newest wedding venue.

As it stands the hall is a work in progress, but come 2020 it will be done, ready and looking amazing for weddings. It’s not very often I get the chance to be involved with a venue so early on in the process, but it was quite exciting looking around, hearing the ideas Jo has to make it into a top Staffordshire wedding venue.  I’m even more excited to go back once the work is finished!

Throw into the mix two dogs bought along by Jacqui from Quintessential wedding day dogs, Heather Victoria doing her magic with hair and make up and model Amy Jukes showing off two gorgeous wedding gowns by Jesus Peiro and Enzoani and between us we nailed it!

If you are getting married in Staffordshire and need a photographer, get in touch! Need some ideas or help finding suppliers for your big day? Drop me a message.
