Newlands Bishop Farm Wedding Photographer

A Summer Wedding Story Captured by Solihull Wedding Photographer Stuart James

I first met Fran + Matt at their wedding of Fran’s brother Tom to Ida last year and I was delighted when they contacted me to be the photographer for their day!

From the first time I spent time in their church for Ida + Tom’s wedding I will never forget the warmth I felt. Adding to that a proper summer setting for the reception, with a marquee on a farm, I was so excited for Fran + Matt’s big day!

On a gorgeous summers day, the wedding of Fran and Matt came…

My coverage of their day started with Matt and the boys, before heading to Fran and the bridal party. 

Matt is such a great guy and so much fun to be around, I just kew things were going to be a laugh from the get-go!

I distinctly remember on Tom & Ida’s wedding, as I was being helpful with the buttonholes on the ushers…suddenly, Matt’s camera phone appeared in my face…same again today :-D

From the short journey it was to the wonderful church of Lake Street Methodist in Gornal. 
As mentioned at the start of the post, there really is a wonderful warmth at Lake Street that I’ve never felt at another church. Whether it be the vicar, the warm welcoming nature of the Church, or a combination of all, I truly felt so special there…
