Wedding Photography Patshull Hall | Wolverhampton Wedding Photographers | Fiona and Euan

As Yorkshire wedding photographers, we regularly photograph weddings at some great venues but sometimes we are lucky enough to be asked to travel outside our local area to capture the celebrations of lovely couples who are marrying elsewhere.  When you are recommended to a couple and they love your work enough to ask you to travel a considerable distance to photograph their wedding, well that's a huge privilege and this is what happened with Fiona and Euan who married at Patshull Hall in Wolverhampton on 2 July.  There must be plenty of Patshull Hall wedding photographers based much closer to the venue but we were over the moon when Carole and Dan, Fiona and Euan's friends, recommended us and we had been looking forward to this day for a very long time.  Having travelled to Wolverhampton the day before just to be on the safe side, the morning of the wedding we set off early and took a leisurely drive to Patshull Hall estate to take some scene setting shots and some of a very relaxed Euan playing football on the lawn with the guys before we joined Fiona and the girls.  The couple had paid a lot of attention to detail and there were lots of lovely little touches, such as the wooden sign pointing to Euan's and Fi's Wedding, the letters spelling out Mr & Mrs Scott on top of the piano in the ceremony room, the collection of family wedding photographs going back generations with the word Love spelt out on the table in front of them and the roses grown and their petals dried for confetti, a true labour of love - just beautiful!  The day we met up with Fiona and Euan to look around the venue and discuss their photography was one of those days when it bucketed down with rain for the whole day, never letting up once and we had our fingers well and truly crossed that the weather on their wedding day couldn't possibly be as bad.  A text from Fiona the previous day confirmed that the weather forecast was perfect but as wedding photographers all know, bright sunshine isn't always perfect for photographs!  Joining Euan and the boys for their formal shots and the sun was blazing down and this continued throughout the ceremony and the group shot session and then it became just a bit cloudy but still very warm and without a hint of a breeze.  Now that's what we call perfect wedding photography weather!  Following the civil ceremony, confetti and group photos, the bridal party joined us for some action shots which were great fun to capture.  Because is was such a lovely day, everyone enjoyed a champagne and cream scone reception on the lawn, soaking up the gorgeous surroundings of Patshull Hall, whilst we nipped off to photograph the newlyweds.  We knew in advance that Fiona loves arty pictures and creating some of these for our beautiful bride, we were in our element!  Leaving the couple with their guests, we went to photograph the wedding breakfast room which  looked spectacular in its mint green and pink colour scheme.  After the wedding breakfast was over and the speeches were captured, Fiona was keen to join us again for a short time for photographs in a couple of locations we'd scouted previously before Euan came along for some relaxed, informal pictures outside.  The light was now soft and lovely for photographs.  The last things to capture were the hog roast, the guests enjoying the evening sunshine, Fiona and Euan's first dance as husband and wife and the live band before we set off on the long drive home.  An absolutely amazing day with Mr and Mrs Scott and their families and friends and thank you so much for asking us to capture it.  If anyone else is looking for a Patshull Hall wedding photographer, we'd love to go back!

If you were a guest at Fiona and Euan's wedding, please leave them a message - thank you.
