Somerford Hall Wedding Photography | Lara + Mike

A spring wedding at a fab Staffordshire wedding venue with a harp-playing Mother of the Groom, kids galore, fun with After Eights and a BGT contestant!!

Quite a few years ago, in a previous (professional) life, I worked in hospitality as a hotel/pub/restaurant manager

One of the sites I managed was to the north of Wolverhampton, which even had a function room where we hosted the odd wedding reception

Well just a few miles along the A449 is Somerford Hall, an 18th Century Palladian Style mansion house (according to Wikipedia!!) which is now a wonderful wedding venue in Staffordshire countryside

When I was looking after the guests at that hotel & restaurant it never occurred to me that years later my career would have taken me down a different path, and I'd be back in that neck of the woods, but now as a Staffordshire Wedding Photographer


I could make you happy, make your dreams come true

There's nothing that I wouldn't do

Go to the ends of this Earth for you

To make you feel my love, oh yes

To make you feel my love

Adele - Make you feel my love

Chilled Staffordshire Wedding Photography

With some weddings I stay in the same place all day, getting ready, ceremony and party all under the same roof.

At other ones Goggle Maps (other sat navs are available!) becomes your best friend, as was the case at Lara & Mike's wedding.
