Sunday 16th September 2018: Cannock Oak Farm Hotel Wedding Of Emma And Shelley

POSTED: 09/11/2018

16th September 2018 saw a first for us at Glyn T Jones Photography, it was to be a day spent photographing our first ever same sex marriage. This was the wedding of Emma and Shelley at the beautiful Cannock wedding venue of Oak Farm Hotel.

We travelled the short distance on the morning of the wedding to the Heath Hayes home of Emma and Shelley to photograph the bridal preparation as they both got ready on separate floors of their home. The atmosphere was very calm as the full bridal party, including the two brides got themselves, and each other ready for the day ahead. more than a few tears were shed during this emotional morning.

We arrived at the beautiful Oak Farm Hotel in Cannock to await the arrival of our first bride Shelley who arrived looking truly stunning in her white lace wedding dress, Shelley was taken inside the wedding venue out of sight for the arrival of Emma.

Emma arrived and emerged from the car looking equally as beautiful as Shelley, Emma was wearing a strapless wedding dress, and both were carrying matching red and white wedding bouquets. Emma made her way into the venue ready to be walked down the aisle by her son Shaun.

The two brides met in front of the registrars for the marriage ceremony to begin, the ceremony went off perfectly, but was an emotional moment for many of the people present. Emma and Shelley were soon announced Mrs and Mrs and led their family and friends out of the ceremony room for drinks.

Everyone ventured out in the grounds of the hotel for the traditional wedding photography to take place of all of the loved ones of the newlyweds. This wedding was amazing to photograph as the whole day was filled with fun which came across in the photographs, as did the love for each other that Emma and Shelley share.

Everyone was treated to a three course wedding breakfast, which was followed by the official wedding speeches, again these were far from the formal type of speeches, and were as fun filled as the rest of the day.

After the meal and speeches had finished, we accompanied Emma and Shelley to the bridal suite, where they had requested more photographs of them to be taken.

It was now time for them to take to the dance floor to perform the traditional first dance, and open the dance floor up to everyone to party hard late into the night.

We wish Emma and Shelley all the happiness in the world together.

Below is a very small selection of their wedding photographs.

We would definitely recommend Glyn & Tracy of Glyn T Jones photography. They photographed our wedding at Oak Farm Cannock on the 27th May 2013. We found them to be very professional and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them, they covered the whole day, and also came back on the evening. The photographs are of very good quality, and we are extremely pleased with them.
