Claire & Mat – Winter Wedding at Swinfen Hall

A week before Christmas the UK had some of its most severe snowfall in years. Roads were closed, cars were abandoned and events were cancelled. This was the weekend Claire & Mat chose to have their wedding!

Luckily, however, their guests were troopers and the extreme weather didn’t stop them attending what was a fantastic wedding at Swinfen Hall near Lichfield.

The day before I was shooting a wedding in London when the snow began to fall. By the time we finished at the wedding, about midnight, the roads, including the M1, were chaos and I finally made it home around 4:30am! A few hours sleep and it was time to meet Claire & Mat…

Huge congrats to Claire & Mat on such a great, fun wedding. Thanks also to their friend Amy who recommended us for the job. And thanks to the always amazing Anna who 2nd shot the wedding with me.

Claire & Mat are currently in Dubai on their honeymoon before heading to the Maldives. Jealous, moi?
