Soughton Hall Wedding Photographer – Joanne & Kevin
We loved capturing Joanne and Kevin’s wedding day. The pair chose Soughton Hall, a privately owned Georgian country House that sits in beautiful gardens. Shooting winter wedding photography at Soughton Hall is always a pleasure because it is such a stunning wedding venue that no amount of bad weather can spoil the day. And nothing was going to stop these guys from having a fantastic wedding.
The 15 individually designed bedrooms give it a boutique hotel feel that coupled with its award-winning restaurant and exclusive use make returning to be Soughton Hall wedding photographer’s something we always look forward to.
On the day we got there early so we could catch up with Joanne who was getting ready in one of Soughton Hall’s beautiful bridal suites. Joanne was in high spirits and safe hands with the stylist/make-up artist from Nala And Knot and her bridal party all around her. The bridal party consisted of sister and maid of honour Becky, mum Shirley, dad Jeff, bridesmaid Donna and beautiful daughter/flower girl Sophie. (joined later by flower girl/niece Annabelle)
Joanne looked gorgeous in her dress she bought from Natalie Ann Brides. The basque style dress with fitted skirt that kicked out at the knee into a pretty mermaid fishtail shape gave Joanne a fantastic silhouette in our images and the intricate lace detail on the arms looked so elegant especially in the close-up hand shots in the ceremony.

Whilst preparations went on upstairs, I caught up with Kevin downstairs who was welcoming guests in the bar. Kevin was looking very smart in his bespoke John E Monks suit and he had an army of best men. There were four of them consisting of Kevin’s son Austin (who was the handsomest) Dave, Jon and Luke. Kevin’s mum Angela was with them to keep them all in check.
The wedding ceremony was held in The Drawing Room. The distinctive fabric lined blue and gold walls make a bold backdrop and work beautifully with the painted ceiling complete with chandeliers. The room is double height which adds character and drama to the space and has gorgeous views of the walled garden at the front of the house.
After the ceremony Joanne and Kevin left via the majestic dining room and outside for a fun confetti moment. Whilst everybody enjoyed a drink’s reception, we took our chance to get some great portrait and group shots of Joanne, Kevin and wedding party both inside and out. My favourites were the romantic portrait images I took of them by the window in the beautiful dining room. Here take a look!
