Delbury Hall Wedding Photography
Wedding of David & Rachel
As a wedding photographer, Covid-19 lockdown has brought me the precious gift of time. So, I've been over some of my less recent weddings, picked out some of my most memorable and decided to write a little blog about them.
Rachel and David's wedding stands out for so many reasons. For starters we had a fabulous pre-wedding shoot that gave us the opportunity to get to know each other better, to work out the best spots for photos on the day and to leave Rachel and Dave with some engagement photo memories. We chose to do the shoot at their wedding venue, the stunning Delbury Hall near Ludlow, Shropshire.
A couple of weeks later was the big day. An early June wedding that started with the bridal preps at Ridge Barn, a holiday cottage just a few miles away from Delbury Hall. This place was stunning, a converted barn with floor to ceiling windows that filled the place with fabulous light, perfect for those make up and hair shots. The girls had stayed here the night before so everyone was settled in and the prosecco was flowing when I arrived in the morning.
The barn gave the most beautiful backdrop with space and light, perfect for moving around the girls for natural shots and setting up those posed wedding photography detail shots of the dress hanging etc.
Rachel and Dave had an outdoor ceremony at Delbury Hall, one of the prettiest outdoor venues in Shropshire. I love the ability to work with natural light so easily at a venue like this and the scope to move around unobtrusively for different angles works really well.
Straight into the drinks reception and plenty of time for some chilled out natural and group shots.
The grounds at Delbury Hall are so versatile, every corner of this venue lends itself to beautiful wedding photography. From the hall itself, the lake, the stunning trees, adjacent fields, secret garden, old stone walls, and the well tended beautiful gardens, we could literally spend all day creating amazing photographs here.
And then it was on to the Wedding Breakfast.....
And there was even time for a few more couple shots after the meal.....
The rain can make the best shots sometimes.............
Love a good bouquet toss, always get the girls on there feet!
And to round off Rachel and Dave's day we took them outside with their close friends and got creative with the sparklers!!
One of my all time favourite weddings!
