Wedding Photographer: Meole Brace Trinity Church & Mytton & Mermaid Hotel, Shrewsbury, Shropshire: Gareth & Kim

Amy was the wedding photographer at Meole Brace Trinity Church & Mytton & Mermaid Hotel, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK for Gareth & Kim’s wedding.

I was so excited for my first wedding of 2013. I left Warrington in thick snow, watching it melt as I drove to Shrewsbury: by the time I arrived there was barely a trace of the white stuff. The Mytton & Mermaid Hotel was host to the wedding reception and also where Kim was getting ready. A short drive to Trinity Church at Meole Brace for the ceremony and an exceptionally warm welcome for me from Phil the vicar got a big thumbs up!

The church has a lovely hall attached to it and all of the guests were treated to hot soup (in mugs) and rolls whilst I used the last bit of light to catch the group shots and some shots of Gareth & Kim. We soon headed back to the Mytton & Mermaid for welcome drinks under blankets on comfy settees and ‘huddling’ around the fire pits before the party headed inside for an evening of food and fun.

Wedding Photographer: Soulton Hall, Wem, Shrewsbury: Glyn & Ally

Amy was the wedding photographer at Soulton Hall, Wem, Shrewsbury, UK for Glyn & Ally’s wedding.

Last October I photographed the wedding of Dave & Jo in central Siena. A year on and it was the turn of Jo’s sister Ally who married Glyn at the Church of St. Luke in Weston-under-Redcastle, Shropshire on a beautiful October day. It was absolutely brilliant to catch up with Jo & Ally’s family and friends and to get to know Glyn better too.

The weather really was unbelievable for mid-October and guests made the most of it, drinking their mulled wine on the lawn during the reception. Soulton Hall, just a 5 minute drive from the church, is a beautiful Elizabethan manor house set on a gorgeous country estate in rural Shropshire. I really loved it, in fact, I didn’t want to leave! Take a look:

Beautiful Soulton Hall, Shropshire.

Wedding Photographer: Shropshire – Shrewsbury, Meole Brace: Will & Louise

Amy & Andy were the wedding photographers at Holy Trinity Church, Meole Brace, Shrewsbury, Shropshire for Will & Louise’s wedding.

It was great to return to the UK for the wedding of Will & Louise and to catch up with their friends Mark & Vicki, whose wedding we photographed back in July 2007. Will & Louise have been together for 11 years and have 3 gorgeous boys, Charlie, George & Henry. Holy Trinity Church is in Meole Village which is in the older part of Meole Brace – a pretty suburb of Shrewsbury. The church has recently been extended and a Village Hall has been built which is actually attached to the church via a lovely little courtyard; it has been beautifully finished with a barn-like interior that cleverly brings together the ‘old’ of the church with the ‘new’ of a brand-new building.

On with the images:

Hope you had a great time in Dubai folks – the first holiday EVER without the kids! Did Henry cry for you for 4 days?! You won’t have to wait long to see the rest of your photographs. I’ll be in touch very soon!

Mark & Vicky

We were booked to shoot Mark & Vicky’s wedding on 7/7/07 a LONG time ago! Since then we must have had almost a dozen other enquiries for this date. Despite the recent down-pours in the UK, the weather was kind and allowed everyone a chance to make the most of the outside areas at the Mytton & Mermaid Hotel near Shrewsbury. A lovely couple, intimate venue, great families & friends, hilarious speeches, evening hog roast… – need I go on? Here are some memories:

Wow! Gorgeous little bridesmaid (& good as gold all day!)

Vicky & Mum with Dad loitering in the background.

He’s gonna break some hearts in future!

Grandma (complete with Pimms) admires Vicky’s wedding ring.

All the boys & girls.

Some creativity with lighting on the happy couple.

That’s it for now. Thanks again folks for having us (& especially for feeding us!) – Have a great honeymoon – we’ll speak to you when you’re back. – AT
