Weston Park wedding photography – Abbie and Luke. One of the lovely things about being a wedding photographer is going to some really amazing venues, I’d been looking forward to Abbie and Luke’s wedding at Weston Park since seeing some photographs of the venue on the internet. Even the heavy rain didn’t distract as I made my way up the drive past the house. Weston Park is in the strangely named village of Weston-under-lizard in Staffordshire, set in 1000 acres of parkland landscaped by Capability Brown, it is also the location for the V Festival. The house contains one of the largest displays of Van Dyke paintings in the country. The house is now run by a charity and is a popular venue for weddings.
I started my coverage with Abbie getting ready in one of the upstairs rooms before I caught up with Luke in the ‘Tent bedroom’, which as you can see from the photographs does indeed resemble the inside of a rather posh tent (but not the type anyone visiting the V Festival would camp in). I then followed Luke and his ushers to the nearby pub before heading to the church. Abbie arrived looking stunning with her Father at the church. Photography wasn’t allowed during the ceremony, although with my silent camera I was able to take a few photographs from the back of the church. I tell a story with my photographs so it is a real shame if there aren’t photographs of the most important part of the day. After the ceremony it was back to Weston Park, now bathed in glorious sunshine. Abbie, Luke and their guests enjoyed the gardens before dinner and speeches. My coverage ended with the first dance.
I do hope you enjoy these images from Abbie and Luke’s wedding at Weston Park.
