Blakelands Country House Wedding Photography

Now this wedding was a hell of a lot of fun to be a photographer at!  Blakelands Country House is a beautiful venue in the South Staffordshire Countryside village of Bobbington with it’s walled gardens, orchards and lakes, so when Darren Gair from The Last Of The Light asked whether I’d be interested in working with him for a Winter Wedding there, I couldn’t say no.

After driving through country lanes and trying to avoid flooded roads, we rocked up to The Loft at Blakelands Country House while Laura was getting ready for her wedding with the girls.  There was bubbly aplenty going around and while Laura was getting pampered, Matt and the lads were also getting ready at Blakelands, so I took a quick stroll over to their room for a while.  I love having photos of both the Bridal and Groom prep, as it really does help tell the full story of the day (plus, the Groom prep photography lets me get a bit moodier with the lighting).  It was here that we found out that Matt was wearing underwear that had Laura’s face printed all over them.  Don’t ask how we found out…we just did!

The wedding ceremony in the Victorian Barn was followed by drinks and canapes in the Main House.  While friends and family were catching up, we took Laura & Matt for a walk around the garden to photograph some portraits of just the two of them.  After that, the wedding breakfast was followed by a few night-time photos just before we kicked straight into party mode.  Oh yeah, remember Matt’s underwear?  I may have suggested that they make an appearance during the first dance…

Even the heavy rain could not stop this one from being such a lovely day.  Below are just some of my favourite photos from Laura & Matt’s wedding and, of course, a slideshow for those who love to crank their speakers up!  If you’re looking for a Professional Wedding Photographer at Blakelands Country House in Bobbington, South Staffordshire, then please do get in touch.
