Saturday 01st December 2018: Park House Hotel Shifnal Wedding of Josh & SophiePOSTED: 05/12/2018
Saturday December 1st we were in Shropshire to provide the professional wedding photography for Sophie and Josh. The wedding venue that had been booked for the occasion was the Park House Hotel in Shifnal, this a stunning hotel set in its own landscaped grounds.
After arriving, and photographing the wedding venue that was already dressed for the wedding, we went upstairs to find Sophie along with her five bridesmaids and flower girl to capture some bridal preparation photography as they got themselves, and each other ready for the day ahead.
We now headed to the bar area of the wedding venue to find Josh the Groom with his best man, and groomsmen where we photographed them all, both in the bar, and outside the venue.
We now returned to Sophie to photograph as she was laced into her wedding dress, and while she had her four-metre veil attached to her hair. The whole bridal party now made their way onto the hotels landing for photographs, before making their way down the grand staircase for the wedding ceremony to take place in front of the wedding congregation.
The ceremony was a lovely emotional service with many tears being shed in the room while Josh and Sophie exchanged rings, and were soon officially named as husband and wife to the huge round of applause of their loved ones.
The newlyweds led their family and friends out into the bar area where everyone was eager to congratulate the happy couple, before we called everyone outside the Shropshire wedding venue for the traditional wedding photography to take place using the ivy clad building as a backdrop.
We now visited various locations around the hotel to photograph Josh and Sophie together in romantic wedding portrait styled photos for them to treasure. This is a dream venue for a wedding photographer, as it is filled with various features from big grand staircases, to stained glass windows.
We captured a few more photographs of Josh and Sophie with their family members, before it was time for us to leave the wedding, leaving the congregation to celebrate late into the night.
We would like to thanks Josh and Sophie for choosing us to photograph their special day.
We would also like to with them a very long and happy life together.
More of the wedding photographs from the day will be added once they have all been seen by Josh and Sophie.
