Amy & Chris’s Wedding Photography

I was delighted to be Amy & Chris’s wedding photographer at the beautiful Packington Moor. I was extremely honoured to work at this wonderful venue as it has sadly stopped taking future bookings now due to HS2. For years I have wanted to do wedding photography at Packington Moor, as it’s such a picturesque location. From the moment Amy told me where they were getting married my mind was racing. Shortly after I drove up there to have a good scout around. As a Birmingham wedding photographer I was not disappointed, this wedding was going to be special.

Birmingham Wedding Photographer At Packington Moor

Packington Moor is located near Lichfield surrounded by miles and miles of unspoilt countryside. A truly magical location to tie the knot. I knew from being a finalist in the wedding industry awards myself, Packington Moor had won best venue in the West Midlands. A very prestigious title and I could see why. Amy had previoiusly shown me a few examples of some wedding photography she loved. When looking around I knew I could create them something very unique.

As your Birmingham wedding photographer, I believe it is very important to know your venue before the big day. Being prepared for you is something I value dearly. I want things to run like clockwork and your day to be amazing. Knowing the best places to take great photographs ahead of time is key.

Arriving At Packington Moor Lichfield & Bridal Preparations

Upon arriving at Packington Moor I headed to the bridal cottage. Amy & her entourage of bridesmaids were having a great time and the prosecco was flowing. It is such a privilege to work in this environment as a wedding photographer. When people have fun it really does allow me to be creative. With my wedding photography I do like things to be clean and concise. This means I do sometimes move furniture around if it helps a scene. I do this so you can be in the best light and the surroundings look beautiful for your wedding photography.

Packington Moor was no exception, I moved quite a few things around but Amy was more than happy to let me do so. I started off taking some closeup images of the wedding details. This is something I love to document as it really helps to bring your album together. Shortly after I came downstairs to capture some candid moments of the girls all getting ready. Being a wedding photographer from Birmingham I really do get to witness some special times with my clients. I love looking back at the images and seeing the joy on their faces.

Now It Was Time For The Wedding Ceremony & The Barn Looked Incredible

So I had just finished Amy’s wedding photography portraits, it was time to head over to the barn. I was blown away by the effort that had been put into it. It looked simply stunning, a very fitting addition to an already beautiful wedding. Getting all the detail and landscape shots of the ceremony is very important for me. As a Birmingham wedding photographer I like to showcase the whole scene before the guests arrive. When you have spent so much time and effort creating your dream day, I want to portray that perfectly.

The guests had now started to arrive and were all as impressed as I was. The atmosphere was palpable and Chris was starting to look a little nervous. Again another thing I love to do with my wedding photography, is to capture the groom before he see’s his bride. Those moments of anticipation before you say I do are priceless.

The ceremony at Packinton Moor was wonderful. I was able to catch some beautiful moments that Amy & Chris will treasure forever.

How The Rest Of the Day Unfolded At Packington Moor

With spirits high it was now time to get a confetti shot and do some family photo’s. I got the wedding party to make a tunnel for the bride and groom. They were then showered with confetti and I went about capturing the moments. Amy & Chris really love these images in particular which I’m extremely happy about. For me wedding photography is about making my clients happy and looking back at their day with fondness.

Once the confetti had subsided we all headed out to the gardens for some family photographs. I couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop, this venue really does have it all. With a little help from the best man & friends I was able to quickly get all pictures done. I like this part of the day to run smoothly so I get more time with you. Your portraits are important and not something I like to rush. These will be the images you cherish most and will hopefully hang proudly on your wall. As your Birmingham wedding photographer it is my duty to make you wonderful images.

The speeches were fantastic, I was very impressed with everyone who spoke. The whole room was in stitches for most of the time. Have a look below at the images, I think my wedding photography will show you that!

Finally rounding the day off we went out at dusk to do some dramatic images with additional lighting. I’m very pleased with how these turned out. Packinton Moor was the perfect setting for what I had planned.

A Big Thank You For Having Me As Your Wedding Photographer
