HARRIET & DAVID – ELFORD HALL GARDEN, STAFFORDSHIRE
Harriet and David took advantage of our award winning service when they booked us to photograph their wedding at Elford Hall Gardens in Staffordshire.
Preparations began the day before, with the couple adding the final touches to their Tipi decor, creating a quirky, rustic vibe that tied in perfectly with the location and the DIY theme. It was very clear to that an astronomical effort had been made to bring everything together in time.
During the morning of the wedding, Harriet prepared at her family home near Lichfield. A house ordained with rare antiques and a particularly beautiful Aston Martin DB7, straight out of a 007 scrapbook. The wedding dress was beautifully crafted in lace, and had elegant long sleeves. Properly stunning!
The wedding ceremony itself took place at Elford church (St Peter’s), just a stone’s throw away from the hall gardens. The charming vicar executed the ceremony with class, mixing religion with humour. He was ace.
The heavens had opened by the time Harriet and David had tied the knot. The summer showers didn’t dampen any spirits as guests made the short walk (with their umbrellas) over to the tipi. There was time for an epic confetti photograph en-route.
Whilst the rain continued, the couple and their guests enjoyed a choice of canapes, washed down with bottomless prosecco and homemade gin. There were a few fuzzy heads before dinner had been served.
After dinner and speeches, the sun finally made an appearance, and we were able to get guests outside. It’s always a pleasure exploring the perfectly maintained gardens in Elford, and we were able to capture some really stunning photographs, as always, in our recognisable, story-telling style. It was awesome to naturally capture their guests as they enjoyed the golden light on the lawn with an authentic stone baked pizza. The evening party, as expected, was mental. Ample air guitar and questionable dad dancing. Just what we love to see.
Despite being Shropshire wedding photographers, we love to document weddings all over the country. Harriet and David’s wedding was no exception. Thank you again for allowing us to capture your big day. Please get in touch if you would like David Boynton Wedding Photography to photograph your wedding!
