We are blessed to live in such a beautiful area of the country. Staffordshire and the West Midlands boast a perfect balance of blissful rolling countryside and big city grandeur. From the grand, historical manor houses to intimate, boutique hotels, quaint village churches and pubs/restaurants, Staffordshire and the West Midlands offer couples such a wide variety of wedding ceremony and reception venues to consider for their special day. I have detailed below just some of the wonderful venues that the county has to offer both from a photographic and hospitality point of view.
Weston Hall Wedding Photographer
Weston Hall is a stunning grade II listed building in the heart of Staffordshire boasting beautiful countryside views, elegant decor and original Elizabethan features. The options for photography at this venue are endless with it's large outdoor sun terrace bar, llamas grazing in a neighbouring field and beautiful gardens, not to mention the gorgeous interiors and just how stunning this building looks lit up at night, this is a perfect backdrop for your Staffordshire Wedding day.
Sandon Hall is a country estate set in hundreds of acres of rolling parkland. The long winding driveway that leads from the gatehouse to the magnificient setting of Sandon Hall is like something straight out of a period drama, it is truly breathtaking. No summary of this venue would be complete without a mention of the grand staircase that you and your husband will come down to be greeted by your guests as the newly married couple. No Sandon Wedding would be complete without a photo here. Think Rose meeting Jack in that epic scene on the titantic and you'll be along the right lines.
Keele Hall is a Grade II listed mansion set within acres of lakes, woodland and gardens and makes a glorious backdrop to your wedding day. The whole venue is a photographer's paradise but special mention has to go to the Italian gardens which provide a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos. With summer weddings, drinks receptions on the lawns provide the perfect spot for me to capture really natural shots of you both mingling and interacting with your guests - real laughs, hugs and congratulations all with the beautiful backdrop of Keele Hall.
