Tor & Lewis | Dovecliff Hall Hotel | Stretton | Staffordshire http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/12/tor-lewis-dovecliff-hall-hotel-stretton-staffordshire I was so pleased to be asked to photograph Lewis & Victoria's Big Day. Tor's Dad Phil, is the owner of Derbyshire's top events, DJ & Disco Entertainment business (Spreadeagle Discos) and has become a good friend, and a face is see all the time on the East Midlands Wedding circuit.

Tor & Lewis has the most amazing day with some very dramatic low sunlight on the day, challenging light for a photographer to work with to say the least, but as you know I am always up for a challenge! The wedding ceremony took place in the lovely setting of Dovecliffe Hall Orangery, where the blazing sunshine streamed in through the south facing window and despite challenging light, I am particularly proud of the atmospheric a lovely moment caught when Tor made her big entrance with Dad Phil, coming down the isle... there's just something about this shot, the look on Tors face as she see's her new hubby-to-be waiting for her.

The Bride & Groom portraiture took on a backlit theme!... making best use of that sunlight for some dramatic warm silhouettes and wide views of the gardens and landscape at Dovecliffe. It was a cool & damp day but Tor & Lewis did an amazing job of working with me, to make the most of the photo opportunities on offer.

I have posted many of my favourites below, but I particularly like the confetti shots, door way pictures and the first dance shots, full of colour and ambience... i have never seen such an amazing, full and colourful light show!

Congratulations Tor & Lewis and i look forward to seeing you both in the studio soon for a proper viewing and choosing session for the album! - Steven

Sarah & Adrian | Knowle Parish Church, Solihull | Packwood House, Lapworth http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/9/sarah-adrian-knowle-parish-church-solihull-packwood-house-la-1 I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah & Adrian's Wedding last saturday, quite a way out of my usual patch, but Sarah & Adrian had been reccomended to me by some friends who's wedding I photographed back in the end of 2010... this was not the only connection I have to the family, as I later found out my father in law once dated Adrian's Mum!... the lovely Elizabeth!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day and not too hot either, the Parish Church in Knowle is large & beautiful, particularly nice for photography with plently of streaming daylight from two levels of gorgeous stained glass windows along the length of both sides of the church which also features a long central aisle, making for some nice long lens, telephoto shots of the ceremony in progress from the back.

The reception was at Packwood House, a National Trust property which is simply a photographers dream for Bride & Groom portraiture, you could easily spend a few hours shooting spectacular shots in the dramatic, colourful landscaped gardens and Adrian & Sarah were just fab to work with, so relaxed, allowing me a free reign to get creative in the gardens.

Below are a few of my favourites from the day, and congratulations once again to Adrian & Sarah and I look forward to seeing you both in the studio for a viewing & choosing session for the album! - Steven

Congratulatons Julia & Ed and I look forward to seeing you in the studio to choose your favs for the album! - Steven

Early Pics from Pippa & Phil's Wedding at Thrumpton Hall, Nottinghamshire http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/8/early-pics-from-pippa-phils-wedding-at-thrumpton-hall-nottin-1 Pippa & Phil had the most wonderful wedding day at the gorgeous setting of Thrumpton Hall, Nottinghamshire. It was a hot warm sunny day at Thrumpton last weekend, which always makes for some lovely backlit shots, and with the amazing gardens at Thrumpton to play with, well there was no problem in getting some really nice photographs of Pippa & Phil. It was a really pleasure working with Pippa & phil who had a good understanding of what was required having joined me up at Thrumpton a few weeks before for a pre wedding shoot. A small selection of my favourite favourite moments. Two shoe shots feature amongst these... Pippa was also in love with her shoes!!

Laura & Richard's Pre Wedding Shoot | The Priesthouse on the River http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/7/laura-richards-pre-wedding-shoot-the-priesthouse-on-the-rive Laura & Richard are to marry in early August at the beautiful setting of The Priesthouse on the River, Castle Donington, Leicestershire. A venue I have now shot in excess of 40 weddings at!! (Venue Portfolio Here). I am really looking forward to shooting thier big day and fingers crossed for good weather.

I think Laura will make a gorgeous bride and as you can see below, most certainly a photogenic one! Laura & Rich were just so relaxed during the pre shoot, very natural and clearly in love, which always helps! We were a little restricted for some of the best spots to shoot from due to the flooding, (a downside on being 'on the River') at the time, but we've managed some lovely summery shots and I cant wait to get to work with this couple on the big day!

Early Pics | Jodie & Matt | Melbourne View Hotel, Melbourne, Derbyshire http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/7/early-pics-jodie-matt-melbourne-view-hotel-melbourne-derbysh Well!... They dont come much more loved up than this couple!! Jodie & Matt are so into each other and very much in love, and it really shows in the pictures.

Jodie was our NCT teacher and Midwife and really looked after me and my lovely wife Jo, throughout the birth of our little girl Jessica. I was really honoured to share in thier special day and capture the memories for them.

Although the weather was a little inclement, we managed some really nice shots in the gardens at Melbourne view. I particularly like the shot of Jodie & Matt sat by the fence with the brolly, and a manacing cloudscape above... which actually couldn't have taken anything away from thier wonderful day and certainly not the constant smile on both thier faces, before and after becoming Mr & Mrs! I am so pleased for them and wish them all the love and happiness in the world. I will share many more shots from thier day once the full post production is complete!

Here's a few highlights from Jodie & Matt's Day... please leave some a comment if you'd like!

I love this shot! - David & Victoria's Wedding | Cathedral Quarter Hotel | Derby http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/6/i-love-this-shot-david-victorias-wedding-cathedral-quarter-h This is one of many cute shots of Victoria & David's gorgeous little daughter Florence, who stood quietly by her parents throughout thier wedding ceremony at The Cathedral Quarter Hotel. I just love this shot so much, it just really captures the love, not only David & Victoria's love for each other, but how much little Florence loves her newly married Mum & Dad. I just had to share this shot! - Steven

Elizabeth & Lee | Shottle Hall, Shottle, Derbyshire http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/5/elizabeth-lee-shottle-hall-shottle-derbyshire Liz & Lee married at the beautiful Shottle Hall, Derbyshire, a Victorian country house rich in history and romance. Set within 4 acres of landscaped gardens and 14 acres of Derbyshire parkland, on the edge of the Peak District national park and with views across the glorious Ecclesbourne Valley. 

The backdrop of Shottle makes for some lovely, classic, naturally lit photography, making use of the tall window light and sumptuous victorian interior. This coupled with Shottle's gardens could never fail to work for any good photographer.

Liz & Lee are a great couple and Liz just looks stunning in her dress. Lee, a very cool character with his unshaven, relaxed indie style, made for some very contemporary Bride & Groom portraiture. We've also captured some lovely shots taking advantage of the classic photographic style that the interior of the Shottle Hall lends itself well to.

I was really pleased and honoured to be asked to photograph this wedding, as I know the Bride & Groom both through friends and knew it would be a great wedding. I knew Liz & Lee would be alot more relaxed into it, knowing me already and having seen my work from some of thier friends weddings.

Congratulations Liz & Lee and I look forward to seeing you both soon for a viewing of all the shots in the studio! - Steven

Kim & Andrew's Wedding - The Priesthouse on the River, Castle Donington, Leicestershire http://clients.stevenbradshaw.co.uk/blog/2012/4/kim-andrews-wedding-the-priesthouse-on-the-river-castle-doni Kim & Andrew are just a fab couple and sooo in love!! You can just tell, and it makes my job as a photographer alot easier! We had alot of fun on the day and have achieved some lovely memories of thier day.

The Priesthouse is a venue I've worked at many times and I always try to capture a different angle everytime I work there. It's a very versatile venue and simply beautiful if you get good weather, it's aspect means some lovely backlit shots and some beautiful wide sweeping landscapes with the river backdrop or the old part of the Priesthouse itself are achieveable, with the right lenses and angles to create some stunning wedding shots.

Unfortunately we didn't have quite the sunny day we had for Kim & Andrew's pre wedding shoot, but it was a bright day with plenty of diffused, steady light, which is easy for me to work with.

I've posted a few of my favourites here which I think you'll agree they definately capture the fun side! Congratulations Kim & Andrew and I look forward to seeing you both for a proper viewing of all the shots! - Steven
