Being Emma & Kevin’s Stratford Park Wedding Photographer

When Kevin first got in touch, I was thrilled to be their Stratford Park wedding photographer. Having never worked at this gorgeous venue. I was very excited to be photographing there! In my Stratford wedding photography business I’ve been lucky enough to shoot at so many incredible venues. Stratford Park Hotel was on my wish list, as it really is a fantastic place to tie the knot! My dream as a Birmingham wedding photographer, is to work at venues as picturesque as this all the time!

Emma & Kevin’s wedding was always going to be wonderful day, as they’re such a lovely people!

I am really excited to show you all these images from their wedding day. From the moment I first pressed the shutter, right up until the dance floor craziness, this wedding was unforgettable! Can you feel the emotion in these photo’s? To me that is what Birmingham wedding photography is all about. I’d just like to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am that Emma & Kevin allowed me to be part of their special day.

How Emma & Kevin’s Wedding Photography Began!

I photographed the couple’s summer wedding at The Stratford Park Hotel in September last year. The weather was mixed when I arrived, but this couldn’t dampen any spirits! I knew no matter what happened, I’d still create them some beautiful images. As a Stratford Park wedding photographer, it is my job to be prepared for anything. Not only that but I bring a full lighting setup to each wedding, so I can tackle any conditions!

Arriving in the bridal suite, I was greeted by lots of friendly faces. Emma was so relaxed and a real joy to photograph. All the girls were in such good spirits, which does let me be so much more creative. As their Birmingham wedding photographer I’m always looking for the best light. The bridal suite at Stratford Park Hotel has a gorgeous window, allowing for some beautiful photo’s. I really do love my job as a Solihull wedding photographer, as I get to witness these fleeting moments in my clients lives. Weddings truly are special, documenting these precious moments for my couples really is an honour!

Capturing Precious Moments

With Emma & her bridesmaids almost ready, it was time to go and find Kevin & the groomsmen! Upon arriving in the ceremony room, I was greeted with the most beautiful light. This is something so wonderful about barn weddings. You just can’t beat that stunning natural light they offer! The Stratford Park Hotel did not disappoint!

I’m Very Proud To Be A Stratford Park Wedding Photographer!

I can safely say being a Stratford Park wedding photographer, this is in my top 5 favourite venues! I’m so eternally grateful to be able to work at this stunning venue and add it to my Birmingham wedding photography portfolio! As a Stratford wedding photographer, this perfect rural setting really does some up the beauty of the area surrounding it.

How The Ceremony At The Stratford Park Hotel Unfolded

With everyone seated and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bride it was time for one of my favourite parts of the day… The ceremony! As a Stratford park wedding photographer I was even more excited as the lighting is to die for!  It’s always a joy to work in such amazing environments, when so much thought has gone into how a space looks.

As a Birmingham wedding photographer, capturing all the wonderful moments that unfold during the ceremony, is so special to me. It really suits my style of Solihull wedding photography, as I live for photojournalism.

I can tell you the ceremony was emotional and really heart warming, an real privilege to document! To my delight the weather was holding out for us, meaning we could all get outside and enjoy the day.

HOW THE REST OF THE DAY AT THE STRATFORD PARK HOTEL UNFOLDED.

I had real fun taking the group photo’s as a Stratford Park wedding photographer! This venue boasts some incredible views of the golf course. Having a backdrop like that to work with is always a bonus 🙂

With spirits still sky high and all the guests enjoying themselves, this is a time I like to blend into the crowd. As I said earlier photojournalism is a real passion of mine and I always love to bring this into my Birmingham wedding photography!

After a little while it was time to take some portraits of the lovely couple. Emma & Kevin really are so natural in front of the camera and this made my job a breeze. We had already done an engagement session at the venue, so we knew the best places to get some amazing photo’s!

SPEECHES & SPECIAL MOMENTS AT THE STRATFORD PARK HOTEL

Speeches are always one of my favourite times of the day during a wedding. The very real emotion surrounding this part of the day palpable. As a Birmingham wedding photographer I love nothing more than the challenge of capturing these magical moments.

This is a time to look for unique angles and create truly memorable images! As I expected the speeches were so funny and heartfelt. I think for me a really memorable and special moment, was when Kevin’s Mum reached over to him while he was saying a really emotional part of his speech. This moment really resonated with me & I’m so glad I was able to document that for them.

SOMETHING TRULY UNIQUE!

At every wedding there is always something truly unique that happens. In my Birmingham wedding photography I’m always looking for these moments. Amongst all the wonderful candid moments something always stands out to me. Emma’s Mum had brought their family dog to the wedding. He was such a character and everyone was just besotted with him. I got a really fun picture of them playing together. For me these are the moments my couples will treasure, a point in time, frozen forever!
