Lydia & Lee ~ Swinfen Hall Hotel


On Saturday 22nd April 2017 I had the great honour of photographing the wedding of one of her Majesty’s finest, Grenadier Guard Lee to his very own Princess Lydia at All Saints Church in Streetly.  Lydia and Lee brilliantly balanced their traditional marriage values with a fun party for their friends and family at Swinfen Hall Hotel afterwards.  When I met with the happy couple prior to the wedding they requested a mixture of fun, casual and of course some romantic moments too….. Only I didn’t realise just how much fun they were going to be.  I have photographed hundreds of  weddings over the years and can quite honestly say I have never had a couple laugh so much!!! It was such a pleasure to capture their amazing day and to be made to feel so welcome, just like one of the family.  Family and friends alike were all up for the celebrations and this definitely shines through in the photographs.  I’m not sure which part of the day was my favourite, the moment Lydia saw her husband for the first time ever in his uniform, the cheeky bridesmaids in the guards caps or the fun with the sparklers and magnificent firework show, but what I am sure of is how much I loved photographing these pair and all their guests, the colours, the laughter I truly loved it all.   I hope you enjoy a few of my favourites from this very special day.

Lydia and Lee, we wish you both a very long and happy future together and Thank You so much for asking us to be a part of your wonderful wedding day.

A big thank you to Leesha, Michael & Stuart for all their hard work at Swinfen Hall, A pleasure as always.
