Nicola and Lee
A Perfect Day

shropshire wedding photographer

A wonderful day to be a photographer, a sun drenched, fun filled pimhill barn wedding day…with the most adorable flower girl and her gorgeous bride Mum…..Nicola.

This really was one of those wedding where pictures really do speak a thousand words…Nicola and Lee chose the stunning Pimhill Barn for their wedding venue of choice. All they needed to round of the day was the perfect service at the most beautiful Church. This was the be the Holy Trinity Church at Leaton near to Shrewsbury. This beautiful spire church is described as a “Church in a Field” on their website, and it is exactly that. Nestled deep in the English countryside this was the perfect setting for Nicola and Lee’s service. The weather was as beautiful as it could possibly be….glorious sun, soft clouds in a vivid blue sky, that gave way to the most amazing sunset. All in all a day to remember through the images below in the natural, artistic story telling way that has become the staple of pbartworks. So if you are looking for a creative reportage photographer for your Pimhill wedding, please do get in touch by emailing hello@pbartworks.co.uk or give Phil a call on 07769676342.

I will leave you with the story of Nicola and Lee’s wonderful day and wish the happy couple, and the gorgeous Lyla, a long and happy future as Mr and Mrs Saxton.

A DAY OF SUNSHINE LAUGHTER AND A VERY VERY HAPPY EVER AFTER…

A beautiful May Saturday for this gorgeous couples wedding over in Cheshire at the fabulous Willington Hall. The perfect venue for this fun loving bride and groom. Now if you are a regular visitor to my website

or my facebook page >> HERE << you will by now know my style is very much creative reportage….so I like nothing more than relaxing and chilling with my clients, but at the same time focusing on capturing the essence of them

and their wedding day…. Liz never stopped smiling, she is such a generous person and so fun to be around, Will was forever the gentleman…much more quiet and glad to let his beautiful Wife shine on her big day, and shine she did!

Her dress was slightly vintage and along with her gorgeous duck egg blue shoes, amazing head wear and delicate veil….she was simply

Stunning

I am sure you will agree.

The whole day was perfect, with plenty of sun….but like goldilocks….not to hot…..just right. The grounds of Willington Hall are very impressive and offered up plenty of scope for those relaxed and informal

bridal portraits. My documentary approach was, I feel…perfect for this venue and doubly so for the wedding itself. I can only thank Liz and Will for entrusting their special day to me, it really was an absolute pleasure

getting to know you guys, and a real joy to work with.

Here’s to much much more fun, laughter and many many more…..happy ever afters.

BTW that 32 year old bottle of champagne….did it ever get drunk?

An Intimate Sweeney Hall Wedding

This was my very first wedding of 2014, way back in January, Carolyn and Steve approached me due to the informal and relaxed style they saw in my images….they wanted me to capture the ambience and atmosphere, quite a tough call considering only 9 people would be in attendance, and that included the bride and groom!! But given the time of year, and knowing the Sweeney Hall to be a fabulous and gorgeous venue, I knew just where all the right places to take my clients. Add into that the beautiful decorations, and Christmas splendour, that was so evident at two more weddings I had recently shot there ( coming soon) I knew there would be atmosphere aplenty.
Carolyn and Steve were also very much into getting ready together…this was no “formal” wedding….even down to this part of the day. They arranged for me to be there from the start to document Carolyn and Steve getting ready. We then brought forward their “wedding shoot” to maximise their time with their 7 guests. Not only that it enabled me to take advantage of any remaining daylight, yes….their ceremony was early afternoon, and on the 4th of January, daylight is a rather scarce commodity. Add into the mixture some rain clouds and you have a seriously short day!! But…relaxed, informal and creative sums up the whole portfolio of images we captured together and it was one brilliant way to kick of what is set to become my busiest year so far.

Thank you so much to Carolyn and Steve you guys were truly wonderful to work with, it has been a pleasure designing your beautiful album…I look forward to seeing you again someday soon.

All the best to you both

CREATIVE ALBRIGHT HUSSEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
PHIL AND GEMMA.

It seems an age ago when I shot this wonderful summers wedding at the beautiful Albright Hussey…which is based near to Shrewsbury just a few short miles from the town centre. It is a place that is steeped in history and one where I find so many beautiful places to capture images….I always look for something different every time….and try to tap into my clients ideas just as much as my own. This was true of Gemma and Phill whose own personalities shone through in the more…”creative”….images. This is all part of the process I go through with every client, the pre wedding shoot enables me to talk to my clients, to gauge their own feelings, and ideas, on what pictures they particularly like. This was no exception….laid back, informal and creative….

 

that kinda sums my style up;)

 

Iscoyd Park Wedding
Chloe and Mike

Whitchurch, Shropshire.

Iscoyd Park Wedding

“Have a lovely day…”

Those very words were on a card sent to Chloe on the morning of her wedding…a day of two celebrations, this was also Chloe’s birthday too…and what a wonderful way for any beautiful young lady to spend her birthday…marrying her best friend.

To be very fair though, I think Chloe and Mike had a more than lovely day…they had a fantastic day. The sun shone the rain stayed away, and Iscoyd Park staff pulled out all the stops to insure it was a smooth and wonderful wedding reception.

I was joined, for the first time, by my good friend and fellow professional photographer, Steve Hale. having Steve along to keep me company was just brilliant, and along with the wonderful videographer lady, we made a nice merry little band of three:)

The day started at Chloe’s parental home in nearby (to me) Whittington, before heading into the village for a Church service…the light that came out during the signing of the register was simply “divine” and added a wonderful luminosity to the images I managed to capture there. This gorgeous light then stayed with us….a bit harsh at times…but always “giving”. Especially just as the light started to fade. The colours conjured up by mother nature were just beautiful, and very apt.

After I showed the happy couple their images I received this lovely text message from Chloe

“PHIL!! We cannot begin to thank you enough for what I can only describe as the most perfect summary of our fantastic day. We have been moved to tears by the emotion & imagination in every photo, capturing more than ‘moments’. We may be some time choosing, I want them all!! Thank you again & we will be in touch soon xxx”

It really does make me “jump” a little inside when I get such amazing and honest appraisals of my work. Being an illustrator for over twenty years, art has always been central to my wedding ethos. That along with my “moments” and documentary style, sums up my approach…one which I tend to call…”creative reportage”. So if you are on the look out for a thoroughly creative, artistic and natural photographer for your Iscoyd Park Wedding, please do drop me a line and lets see if we can create some wedding “moments” for you to treasure.

All it leaves me to do now is to thank Chloe and Mike for allowing me to be part of your amazing journey together….here’s to a wonderful future as Husband and Wife.

Wishing you both much love and happiness.
