Summer Wedding at Bishton Hall by Bishton Hall Wedding Photographers Stuart James
There are weddings each and every year that you just know are going to be bloody good fun…and knowing the crowd that would be at Claire + Eddie’s Bishton Hall wedding I had high expectations. To say I wasn’t disappointed is somewhat of an understatement. Quite simply fabulous from start to end!
I’ve known Claire + Eddie for a few years now, having photographed many of the group’s weddings over the years, from Liz + Chris at Somerford Hall to Shell + Edd at Pendrell Hall. Of course, I also know Eddie really well from using him as a printer for years at ES Print…his dream job apparently? I knew if the weather was on-side, it was going to be pretty fabulous…and with the day proving to be the ‘last day of summer’ it really was perfect!
Bishton Hall is a stunning setting just outside Rugeley at Wolseley Bridge, Stafford and with summer weather, is truly perfect. From the private house and gardens, the outdoor ceremony setting, and the ability to put a personal stamp on the venue, it really is quite fabulous…and I just LOVED working there!
It really made me smile how Dave found garden duties to do to keep him busy…and out of the way of all of the girls!
Helen, the Mother of the Bride, making the most of those “11 Almonds” ?
The flowers from Carrie Lucas were just stunning!
When the camper arrived ready to pick up the bridesmaids the quality of the renovation really struck me…some serious hours there from the Father of the Groom, Double O!
From the finishing touches to the flawless makeup, it was time to don that gown!
The moment I always look forward to photographing…the grand reveal of the beautiful bride to her waiting Father…
Taking my leave, I headed over from Cheslyn Hay to Bishton Hall to capture the rest of the day.
From the arrival of our bridesmaids, it was soon time for our Bride Claire to arrive for the ceremony…and in some style too courtesy of His and Hers Wedding Cars.
Leaving the bridal party to get ready for the fabulous procession, it was time to see how Eddie’s nerves were holding up…
Such a beautiful moment, for the Father of the Bride, and to capture too…
From the entrance through the gardens to our waiting groom at the Doric temple in the grounds, you couldn’t ask for an exceedingly perfect setting for the wedding ceremony…
Signed sealed and delivered, to a wonderful soundtrack by our string quartet, Take Four.
After a few minutes in the grounds with Claire and Eddie, it was back to our guests, enjoying the fabulous drinks reception in the gardens…
From the traditional group shot on the Doric Temple steps, it was naturally time for a few of the signs to come out…well, if you are going to photograph a printers wedding… ?
From the confetti run, and the family groups on the lawn, it was fabulous spending a few minutes with Claire and Eddie making the most of the fabulous setting and the truly beautiful light…
Just how stunning do these pair look?! Claire’s dress from The Dressing Rooms complimented by the flowers from Carrie Lucas was so suited to Claire, and Eddie’s suit from Blooms in Wolverhampton was just fabulous… For a couple that wasn’t about ‘posed’ photos…they look damn good!!
The attention with the styling and decorating of the venue was so fabulous…well worth the effort guys!
From the entrance to the waiting guests, it was straight into the speeches…possibly a good thing with the crowd getting into the Jaegers before dinner ?
After the laughter and emotional rollercoaster from Paul, it was down to our Groom to say thanks to almost everyone…
…that’s right…he forgot THE BRIDE! Brilliant!!
Fabulous entertainment! Talking of which…it was then over to our best men…time to get their own back on Eddie!!
Claire’s face here ?
So many good stories…great work boys!!
I do love the theatre when the carving is left to a nominated guest from each table!
As the afternoon proceeded into the evening, it was fabulous the weather stayed with us so the guests could enjoy the summer evening, relaxing in the gardens and having a brilliant time with the party games too!
I couldn’t have asked for light any more perfect to enjoy with Claire + Eddie…
What an evening of fun and frivolities to capture…
Time to get the night’s celebrations underway, with the cutting of the stunning cake from Hayley’s Bespoke Bakery, and opening the soon to be rammed dancefloor!
It’s got to be said – these guys know how to party!! I could have stayed all night and not got tired! Just fabulous!!
Alas, Claire + Eddie didn’t want evidence of the night, so it was out into the gardens for a couple of signature portraits to conclude their story instead…
Claire and Eddie, just wow! What a day! I had an absolute blast capturing your story, both through the photos and the photofilm…it really was such a pleasure to capture your story!
It was also fabulous to catch up with a few old friends too – always love seeing you guys!! Need more weddings to be booked ?
Bishton Hall really was a perfect setting for your day Claire + Eddie, and a wedding I will remember for years to come… I cannot wait to start using your story to showcase our work!
Here is the PhotoFilm coverage from their day!
