Creative Documentary Wedding Photography Story by Penkridge Wedding Photographer Stuart James
When Annette walked into the Moat House Wedding Fayre, it was her sister that shot over to me! Over 10 years ago I’d had the pleasure of photographing Vicky + Simon’s wedding at the stunning Park House Hotel, Shifnal. Thinking back now and reminiscing, it’s amazing how our style and approach has evolved.
From the days of traditional photographs on a Hasselblad, to the documentary storytelling approach I employ today, it was really interested to talk to Vicky + Si about things, and truly wonderful to see the family again too!
Annette + Lee’s wedding was to be incredibly relaxed – and just perfect for them!
Capturing their story from the final preparations, I had the pleasure of working with the fabulous Grace Lawless Makeup Artist, as she brought the finishing touches together for Annette and the girls.
The mood in the wedding room was fabulous relaxed, with the anticipation and excitement building for the junior bridesmaids especially!

The decor brought together my Kerry and the team from Sorella was absolutely perfect, with the flowers matching the dresses wonderfully.
The gents chose their suits from ever popular Dapper Dan in Wednesfield.

Leaving the guests heading into the wedding ceremony, it was time to head to the bridal party for the final preparations of our bride, looking stunning in her gown from Adele Louise.
The emotion in the room when Colin, the Father of the Bride, entered to see his daughters and our Bride in particular, was amazing to be around and capture.
Back into the Acton Suite the nerves were clearly building for our groom, awaiting the arrival of his beautiful bride.
Lee’s eldest boys were next to him on Best Man and Usher duties, with Josh about to enter with the bridesmaids and our bride.
The look between Bride and Groom and Father of the Bride here is just beautiful – I love capturing moments like this!

The ceremony location in the Acton Suite is always fabulous bathed with gorgeous light, and the space to capture the story in a completely unobtrusive way.

With beautiful lighting blessing us, it was fabulous to spend a few minutes making the most of the setting with Annette + Lee. Always a treat to photograph weddings at The Moat House!
Documentary Photography of the Wedding Speeches
The Acton Suite looked absolutely stunning transformed for the wedding breakfast. Sorella really do know how to make the place look special!
From the entrance of our bride and groom – always love capturing that special moment – it was straight into the speeches!
From tears to laughter, the speeches went down perfectly!

In a break from the norm, my coverage of Annette + Lee’s wedding came shortly after the meal with the evening portraits. But with incredible golden light, it was a fitting way to bring the story to an end!
And with that, I left Annette + Lee to enjoy their evening!
What a day! Annette + Lee I loved sharing your wedding, and cannot wait to bring the finished story together with you both!
