Sian + Ben | Chillington Hall
A couple of weeks ago I was at the fabulous Chillington Hall in Brewood for Sian + Ben’s wonderful wedding celebrations at one of Staffordshire’s most exclusive wedding venues.
Although a new venue for me, I felt completely at ease at Chillington and truly blessed with the amount of opportunities for wonderful photographs around the house and the grounds, allowing me to truly create a stunning photographic record for Sian + Ben.
After I shared their previews last week I’m delighted to bring the featured preview here.

What a stunning setting for a wedding!
Along with being a beautiful setting, Chillington also has fabulous open lounges that are brilliant for guests to enjoy the space and relax and enjoy the day.

…who was looking rather nervous!
The buildings and settings within the grounds of Chillington Estate are simply breathtaking. It would have been a sin to not head down and make the most of the opportunities…
After the formal photographs outside it was time to capture the guests relaxing during the drinks reception.
And looking out for those fabulous character captures:
One of the most beautiful and striking features of Chillington Hall has to be the grand staircase with the stunning stained glass window. Breathtaking.
The grand hall looked fantastic set out for the wedding breakfast.
A fabulous grand entrance into the wedding breakfast!
Speeches have long been and will always be one of my favourite periods of the wedding to document and the speeches at Sian + Ben’s wedding were certainly no exception.
The combinations of sentiment and humour, and discovering the stories and history involved within a wedding party and then bringing these moments and feelings alive each time the photographs are looked at is one of the most important elements to my photography.
Priceless reactions to photographs of the groom as a child.
The marquee at Chillington Hall provides a fantastic setting for the evening reception, which is a great contrast to the hall.
It’s always a pleasure to be working with the super talented Cartoon Kings who were fantastic as always!
Thank you for inviting me to share your most precious day Sian + Ben, it was a true pleasure to be there to document your Chillington Hall wedding.
