It’s been a little while since I last posted, but things have been a bit hectic, with several weddings completed as well as lots of stuff in the studio.
I recently had the priviledge of doing wedding photography for Lisa and Neil. Their wedding ceremony took place at the historic and delightful St Bartholomews Church in Tong, Shropshire. St Bartholomews dates from 1409 in it’s current form and has been rated one of the top 1,000 churches in England (out of 15,000) by the Times. Is was also for many years reputed to be the site of the grave of Little Nell, a character in Charles Dickens book ‘The Old Curiosity Shop’. Dickens’s mother worked for a time at the nearby Tong Castle. It was subsequently found that the grave was a fabrication by a verger in the early 1900’s. The church still attracts visitors from all over the world.
Having got to know Lisa and Neil in the run up to the wedding, I was really looking forward to being able to share and contribute to their big day. Everything went like clockwork at the church and it was then on to the Reception venue, the lovely Madeley Court Hotel near Telford. This 16th century manor house provides lots of great wedding photography opportunities and is a delight to work with.
As usual, the time just raced past. There was a great atmosphere and lots of laughter. I am sure Lisa and Neil have a great future together.
