A look back at Tom & Amanda’s elegant Swinfen Hall Wedding…
Back in August 2015 I had the pleasure of covering Tom & Amanda’s amazing Swinfen Hall Wedding. The weather was a typically warm, bright, but over-cast day which made for some lovely images. The ceremony took place at the Parish Church of St Mary in the sleepy Derbyshire village of Marston On Dove. What made this wedding extra special was that Amanda’s Aunty Julie had travelled a great distance to conduct the ceremony, adding a wonderful atmosphere to the intimate gathering of family and friends. From there we travelled over to Staffordshire, to the exquisite venue that is Swinfen Hall. This breath-taking Georgian Manor House is set in 100 acres of parkland, and provided us with the perfect backdrop for a such an elegant reception. The Enigma String Quartet greeted us upon arrival that created a relaxed atmosphere, reminiscent of the house in days gone by. Drinks were taken in the beautifully presented gardens whilst Tom, Amanda and I were able to slip away and create some fantastic images in gardens that left me spoilt for choice! Here are some of those images, along with a few kind words!
‘Paul was beyond amazing for our wedding. He was there, but we didn’t know he was! My Aunty was our vicar and she said he was the best photographer she had experienced in a church setting. He was super friendly and the images speak for themselves!’
