The Moat House | Georgia + Sean

Over the years it has been so exciting to share many “firsts” and new venues with you all.  In this my retirement year it will sadly be more “lasts”.  After over 25 years of photographing weddings at the wonderful venue that is The Moat House Acton Trussell, todays wedding of Georgia & Sean was to be my last one there……a lovely wedding as were they all……..I shall miss The Moat House.

Stunning Spring Wedding at The Moat House Acton Trussell

The Moat House Acton Trussell has for many years been one of our favourite venues.  Today for the wedding of Georgia & Sean it was to be my last visit as a professional photographer and it looked just as fresh and friendly as it always has.  I shall miss this place as I move into retirement.

The day itself was a really kind day, heavy rain forecast for later but for the wedding, thankfully dry.

My day started with Georgia as she enjoyed her final preparations with Rachel Bourne taking care of her make up with hair by Gemma Birch.  I left them for a short time to capture Sean & the guys who arrived in a surprise Limo, have to say they all looked rather smart in their suits from Dapper Dan.

Next, it was back to Georgia, just in time to see her stepping into her fantastic gown from Wedding Belles of Four Oaks.  The day was now speeding along and soon all of the guests were seated in the Acton suite, styled today to perfection by Bespoke Creations, who incidentally also provided the bouquets and bridal party flowers.

Sean stood at the front eagerly awaiting his bride and when she arrived, yes you guessed it…..the tears flowed.

The ceremony was made all that much more enjoyable by the regular interruptions from Dolly, the couples adorable daughter.

Lakeside portraits at The Moat House 

As Georgia & Sean left the room they were joined by close family and friends Lakeside for those all important group shots.

Taking advantage of the kind weather the couple then joined me for their personal portraits around the gorgeous grounds of this stunning venue.
