Ettington Park Hotel Wedding Photography | Mahsa & Anthony


This wedding at Ettington Park Hotel was a first for me. It was the first time I had photographed two siblings from the same family. It is always an honour as a Birmingham wedding photographer to shoot any wedding. To be fortunate enough to work with the same family on more than one occasion is truly wonderful. Have a look at my wedding photography Birmingham of Grace & Anthony’s wedding at Hogarths in Solihull Here.

Mahsa & Anthony both live in USA, but had been passed my details by his sister Grace. I was so pleased to learn they would having their big day at Ettington Park Hotel, as I have always wanted to shoot at this incredible location! I was also very excited as Mahsa & Anthony had expressed an interest in some of my off camera work for their album. In my wedding photography Birmingham I love to go the extra mile with my creativity. After I have captured all your main images, I love to setup some additional lighting and get some dramatic portraits. Ettington Park Hotel had breath taking scenery for these types of photographs!

How The Day Unfolded At Ettington Park Hotel, Stratford


Mahsa & Anthony had actually tied the knot in the US a few months earlier, so this was their UK wedding. I can fully relate to this as myself & Lisa had a wedding here and abroad. It’s always so nice to try and include all of the family in the celebration. In the short amount of time we had on the day, I wanted to get some beautiful images for the couple. No matter if I’m shooting a full day or just a few hours I will always create something unique for you. As a Birmingham wedding photographer I take pride in delivering beautiful memories for my clients. Wedding photography is such an important role in your wedding and I believe your images should reflect that.

So on arrival to Ettington Park Hotel, I captured all my establishing images and then went to see how Mahsa was getting on. The atmosphere in the bridal suite was palpable. Everyone was in high spirits and with good reason! As a Birmingham wedding photographer I’am in my element when everyone is happy and enjoying themselves. The raw emotion in wedding photography Birmingham is why I choose to become a wedding photographer. I absolutely love document these precious moments for my clients.

Some Memorable Moments From Ettington Park Hotel


As I mentioned earlier Mahsa & Anthony were really interested in allowing me to be creative with some portraits for them. Going above and beyond to create you great images is what drives me! I don’t believe in recycling the same wedding photography Birmingham images year in year out. Each wedding is unique and should be documented in a slightly different way.

With that in mind I went into the grounds to setup some additional lighting. Both Mahsa & Anthony took to posing like complete pro’s, it really was a delight to photograph them. By the old church at Ettington Park Hotel there is a wonderful spot for photography. My vision was to create a portrait which encapsulated winter but also a little differnt to what we had already got. The large over hanging tree in this location was just perfect!

Finally I really wanted to create a shot of the couple in front of Ettington Park Hotel. The grandure of the building isn’t fully appreciated until you can get a sense of scale. Placing both Mahsa & Anthony in the archway really told this story for me.

Thank You For Having Me As Your Birmingham Wedding Photographer
