The Hundred House Hotel is a gorgeous wedding venue near Bridgnorth in Shropshire. It was the perfect choice for Louise and Ed’s big day in May. They had their ceremony in the lovely restored 17th Century Tithe Barn while all their friends and family looked on. After the vows had been said, the rings had been exchanged and the register had been signed it was time for confetti! With confetti the more there is, the better, Louise and Ed had definitely used this rule and their confetti faces were just amazing! It made for some of my favourite confetti photographs of the year so far!
We then went out into one of the Hundred House’s various gardens, there were drinks, canopes and garden games for both adults and children to play! It was such a lovely celebration to witness and I captured lots of photographs of their guests laughing and having fun.
We then used another section of the Hundred House’s gardens for Louise and Ed’s couple portraits. Their guests were busy having a brilliant time drinking and playing games so we snuck away for 15 minutes with just the two of them. I absolutely adored The Hundred House Hotel’s gardens, they’re an absolute hidden gem and made for such a wonderful background for their portraits. These two were such a joy to photograph, not only are they a beautiful couple but they also laughed really easily together and if there’s one thing I LOVE photographing, it’s couple’s laughing!
We made our way inside for the second part some of their portrait session. I’d spotted a window earlier on that I decided I wanted to use in some way. During a wedding day a usually get a fair few ideas for couple portraits, I always try to make one photograph that’s a little bit different in some way. This usually means taking a risk, I’m always really open with my couples and say “I’ve got an idea, it might not work, but let’s give it a go!”, worst case scenario, we give the idea a go for 5 minutes and it doesn’t work, so we move on. Best case scenario, we give the idea a go and you end up with a really epic photograph! I absolutely think it’s worth potentially wasting 5 minutes on! This is what I did with Louise and Ed and I produced this gorgeous image of them in front of the stained glass window sharing a quick kiss. I don’t do silhouette photographs very often but I was really pleased by how this image came out!
After I delivered their images Louise and Ed wrote back with such a lovely testimonial! They said…
When looking for a photographer for our wedding, Lisa was highly recommended and we both loved her photos after looking on her website. We really liked the natural style of the photos and wanted a relaxed and chilled atmosphere for our guests. We didn’t want many posed photos as we didn’t feel they captured the real moments of the day.
Lisa was very easy to work with and made myself, Ed and our guests feel comfortable and relaxed. Having Lisa in the background meant that our photos captured real moments of the day and everyone could enjoy the day without having to pose and feel uncomfortable. Communication leading up to the wedding, the day and afterwards took away any stress we had and Lisa made both of us feel comfortable having our photos taken. The chance to choose a few posed photos meant we could have family photos to remember the day and share with others.
Our photographs turned out amazing, they tell the story of the day and everyone that has seen them has said how beautiful they are. We have struggled to choose our favourite as we love so many of them.
To anyone that is looking for a wedding photographer to capture the real moments of the day in a relaxed and comfortable environment would definitely make the right choice choosing Lisa. I cannot recommend her enough! She has captured memories of our most special day with beautiful photos that we will look back on and treasure forever! We will be recommending her to our family and friends without any hesitation.
The Hundred House is such a gorgeous wedding venue, I would absolutely love to photograph more weddings here! If you’re planning a wedding at The Hundred House, please get in touch, I’d love to photograph you big day!
