The Moat House | Birmingham Wedding Photographer – Charlie & Dave

Being Charlie & Dave’s Birmingham Wedding Photographer

When Charlie first got in touch about me being their Birmingham wedding photographer, I was over the moon as I’ve known Dave for years. We knew each other well through my former career as a DJ. Dave having achieved some real success in the industry, it was very humbling to be asked.

I had not previously worked at the stunning Moat House before and was extremely excited. Working at new venues around The Midlands is something I love to do. Doing wedding photography in Birmingham gives me that opportunity and I’m very grateful for it.

Wedding Photography At The Moat House In Staffordshire

The day had finally come and I had just arrived at the gorgeous Moat House in Staffordshire. As a Birmingham wedding photographer I’m always looking for inspiration and this venue offered me so much. With it’s beautiful lakes and lush green pastures I knew I was in for a treat. I had arrived early, just like I would on your wedding day. Getting there ahead of time is key for me and I pride myself in that.

Now it was time to go and find Charlie and her bridal party. I entered the room to such a buzz. The girls were all so relaxed and excited about the big day ahead. As a Birmingham wedding photographer I couldn’t ask for me. When you’re fully relaxed and at ease I can document some wonderful moments for you. I believe you should have a rapport with your photographer, Wedding photography flows so much better when you get on with that person.

So I spent the next few hours moving between the bridal party and the other guests. I like to give you a complete look of your special say and variety is key.

Now It Was Time To Photograph The Ceremony And Emotions Were High

As a Birmingham wedding photographer this is one of those occasions I really look forward to. For me I just love capturing natural moments and this is one of the best times of the wedding to do so. Your final album is so important to me and I want these memories to make you smile for years to come. Capturing beautiful wedding photography at this part of the day is paramount.

Everyone was overjoyed for Charlie and Dave and it really shows in their pictures. No matter how many weddings I shoot in and around the Midlands I will always be humbled. All of my clients graciously let me in to share and witness their special moments.

With the ceremony complete we all headed out to the beautiful gardens at the back of The Moat House. I just knew straight away where I wanted to take the family formal images and I think they’ve come out perfectly.

How The Rest Of the Day Unfolded At The Moat House, Staffordshire

Now it was time to get the bride and grooms portraits. This is one of the most important times when photographing a wedding for me. Most of my clients will use these set of images for prints and to show their friends and family. Having already scouted out a few locations I knew where we could go. To my delight the weather had remained perfect and we had no issues. At the Moat House there is a little jetty that goes out into the lake and makes for a gorgeous setting. When you look at the pictures below you will see how beautiful that spot really is.

As I mentioned earlier for me as a Birmingham wedding photographer variety is key. I took Charlie and Dave to several spots so they would have a mixture of portraits to choose from. With the weather remaining bright we took a few silhouettes too. I love to get creative with my wedding photography Birmingham. Giving you something unique you hadn’t expected is always my goal.

The rest of the day was a joy to be part of. The celebrations went on into the night and I was so pleased to be their Birmingham wedding photographer.
