Soughton Hall in North Wales is one of my favourite venues to shoot at, so I was thrilled when Jasmine and Josh asked me to photograph their wedding at this beautiful venue.
I’m a wedding photographer in Cheshire and North Wales, and Soughton Hall is actually just down the road for me in Flintshire. It’s one of the venues I shoot at most frequently, and it’s not hard to see why it’s such a favourite for couples who are getting married. Soughton Hall is a stunning Georgian country house approached down a sweeping driveway and surrounded by landscaped gardens. I knew it would be a beautiful wedding, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.
Jasmine and Josh’s Wedding at Soughton Hall, North Wales
On the morning of the wedding I was thrilled to see the sun shining: perfect wedding weather! As I arrived at the venue I couldn’t resist taking some shots of Soughton Hall in the sunshine.
First off, I joined Jasmine and her bridal party to capture some bridal prep shots. As a wedding photographer, I love being involved in bridal prep: it’s such a fun and exciting part of the day. I took some stunning shots of Jasmine looking out at the venue’s grounds, as well as capturing the details of her beautiful dress and bouquet.
It was wonderful to see Jasmine’s parents’ and sisters’ reactions when they saw her in her dress for the first time, and it made for some lovely wedding photography.
Jasmine and Josh chose to have their ceremony in the beautiful Drawing Room which is fabric lined in blue and gold and features a fresco painted ceiling with chandeliers. Soughton Hall even allowed a very special guest to make an appearance!
After the ceremony we all enjoyed mingling in the sunshine in the grounds of the Hall, with the North Wales countryside as the backdrop.
I also took the opportunity to spend a little time with Jasmine and Josh to capture some romantic images of them as a couple. As a wedding photographer, one of my favourite things about Soughton Hall is the grounds and gardens. Some of my favourite photographs have been taken in the venue’s picturesque Secret Garden: overlooking the southern façade of the Hall, and shaded by eucalyptus trees, this atmospheric garden really is perfect for some magical wedding photography.
We then moved inside for the wedding breakfast. Couples getting married at Soughton Hall tend to choose the marquee for their wedding reception: it’s a lovely, elegant space that lends itself to any type of venue dressing. The Marquee overlooks the wooded gardens and is accessed directly from the house through a glass walkway.
After dinner I was able to pop outside again with Jasmine and Josh to capture some beautiful wedding photography in the late-afternoon sun. We took advantage of Soughton Hall’s elegant exterior to create the perfect setting.
Then it was time for the evening reception, with the huge light-up “LOVE” making an ideal backdrop for some eye-catching photos!
Before the day was over, we managed to sneak in a little time for some romantic photos of the bride and groom as night fell: the perfect end to the perfect day in North Wales.
