Old School House Wedding Photographers
Old School House Wedding Photographs by Lichfield Wedding Photographer Stuart James
The Old School House in Weeford, Lichfield is such a stunning setting. I’ve had the opportunity of photographing many weddings there over the years, and knew Natalie and Liam’s would be a great day to be part of!
Natalie and Liam live just around the corner from their church, Christchurch in Burntwood, with my coverage starting with the final preparations of the bridal party.
Upon arrival at the couples home, the mood was so incredibly relaxed! With Hayley and Mel on hair and makeup duties, our bride and bridal party were looking fabulous! Natalie found her gown from The Bridal Rooms, and as soon as I saw it, I just knew it was THE dress for her! Just perfection matched beautifully by the bridesmaid’s gowns from White Rose and the stunning flowers.

Leaving the bride to her final preparations, and the parents of Natalie excited in anticipation, it was time to see how our groom was feeling!
Christchurch is a fabulous little church, and with the vicar on-side, I was thrilled to be able to capture the wedding ceremony naturally.

From a journey in style, it was straight to The Old School House. I was so happy the mild October weather stayed with us and we were able to make use of the stunning grounds at The Old School House, capturing relaxed portraits whilst the guests enjoyed the drinks reception.

The styling of the marquee was beautifully simple, bringing the theme into the venue perfectly with the sashes and the flowers. The cake topped brought an interesting reaction, however…

Capturing the guests enjoying the drinks reception and canapés allows everyone to become part of the story. Little moment and interactions become really special within the overall narrative.
Ahead of their grand entrance to their assembled guests, I just had to take advantage of the stunning light that appeared with our bride and groom:
Documentary Wedding Photography – Wedding Speech Photography
Capturing the wedding speeches, with the reactions from the guests, is always an absolute highlight of the wedding for me!
Natalie and Liam’s speeches didn’t disappoint either – so many great moments!
How cute is this little dude?

And with that, my coverage of Natalie and Liam’s Old School House wedding came to an end – what a fabulous wedding to be part of!
With this feedback, I think it’s safe to say Natalie and Liam were happy too:
Our photographer helped us through every step of of the day. He looked smart and blended in with our other guests. We didn’t feel like we were having our
photo taken at all. He was so friendly and everybody loved him. He took the time to know who was who and that felt really special. He managed to capture moments that we may not have seen which was amazing; the secret smile on a face or the infectious laugh. We cannot thank him enough.
