New Hall in Walmley near Sutton Coldfield is without a doubt one of the best venues in the Midlands to have a wedding. It’s a stunning venue, part of which is around a thousand years old, and the grounds are perfect to escape into for photos. On top of that, the staff are super-friendly and extremely professional. And they serve the best chips you’ve ever tasted! As if that weren’t enough, they can even boast being the set for part of the Bon Jovi video for Sleep When I’m Dead.
Jo & Jim’s wedding wasn’t the first wedding we had shot at New Hall but it was definitely one of the most fun. The couple are so easy-going and their guests made us feel like a part of the day rather than hired staff! 🙂 They had perfect weather too.
Here’s just a few of my favourite images from the day, beginning with a quick round of golf…
But obviously Jo was the real star..
The main hall at New Hall makes for quite a dramatic setting for the ceremony… Or in Bon Jovi’s case, the party!
And the garden is perfect to relax with friends and family after the knot has been tied.
But it’s always nice to take some time to escape the crowd..
Jim had two best men and they did a grand job, even going as far as getting matching football “tattoos” in honour of the groom..
Later in the day I stole the couple away for some cool portraits. LOVE these!!
Some couples make our job the best job in the world and Jo & Jim definitely fall into that category. We just ordered their album and I can’t wait to see the finished result. It’s gonna be gorgeous!
Thanks again J&J for inviting us to be a part of your wedding. We had a great day and wish you both a fantastic future together. Don’t forget to book us to photograph the kids when they arrive 😉 And I hope you enjoyed the mix CD!
