Sandon Hall | Rachel + Richard
Today was our 3rd visit to the wonderful Sandon Hall in as many weeks and our 3rd where the brides shared a Christian name..Rachel. That is where the similarities end, same venue, but 3 entirely different and special weddings, and todays wedding of Rachel and Richard, with many guests flying in from the far east was no exception.

It was not that long ago that I met todays bride and groom, Rachel and Richard, although they had secured our services quite some time ago having viewed examples of our work that they had seen at their chosen venue, Sandon Hall.
Starting the day, along with Stephen by my side covering the brides final preparations at The Swan in Stafford soon made it feel as though we had known Rachel for ages.
Soon we were over to the venue, Sandon Hall, beautifully decorated by Briege to find Richard and the guys eager to have their part of the day recorded.
Whilst we were waiting for the bridal party to arrive we had the chance to meet family and friends,many who had come over the Indian Ocean to be part of this very special day.
A quick glance down the magnificent drive leading to the hall revealed the distinctive Beauford of Heritage Wedding Cars, bringing Rachel to her awaiting groom.
Following the ceremony a few important family groups were captured before the couple joined us for a relaxed personal portrait session around the grounds. A traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony preceded the meal.
We remained with Rachel and Richard to record the reactions to the speeches,made most memorable by the Brides Fathers contribution and then on to first dance, before taking our leave with the happy couple and their guests partying the night away.
