Iscoyd Park Wedding Photography
In February 2020 I had an eventful first experience as an Iscoyd Park wedding photographer.
Jodie & Elliott’s winter wedding took place right in the middle of Storm Dennis. While the country was rocked on successive weekends from storms Ciara and Dennis it seemed like a bad time to get married in 2020 as travel across the country was disrupted. Turns out it was the best time to pick before we were hit with an even worse storm in the shape of COVID-19. Jodie & Elliott’s big day on the Welsh border was the last wedding I shot for several months, and it was a good wedding to have gone out with. If you are interested in booking me for you Iscoyd Park wedding photography please get in touch.
Below is a selection of images from the day, I hope you enjoy looking through them.
BRILLIANT WINTER WEATHER VENUE
One of things that made the day such a success was the venue itself. Many venues have great grounds or great interiors, but few can boast having both. Although I didn’t take a single photo outside once everyone had piled in from the cars, being inside all day wasn’t an issue at all. The ceremony room, the permanent marquee and numerous spacious rooms with big windows (lots of lovely natural light for the photographer to work with!) means that it doesn’t feel like it’s a shame not to be outside. Any couple thinking of a winter wedding, or who is worried about bad weather on their day, should seriously consider Iscoyd Park as their wedding venue, it can cope seamlessly with any eventuality. Thanks in no small part to the staff. The day was a smooth operation from start to finish as Ffion and her team ran everything seamlessly.
ISCOYD PARK WEDDING
Jodie’s morning started at home in Penkridge for hair and make-up before the 50 minute trip in torrential rain and driving wind up the A41 to Iscoyd Park where her and her bridesmaids got changed in the bridal suite. Elliott and his groomsmen arrived shortly after and got changed in The Library. The ceremony took place in the Garden Room. A beautiful high ceiling room with cream walls, and large windows, meaning there was loads of natural light bouncing around to work with – a photographer’s dream! After the ceremony there was a drinks reception in the drawing room where Toscana Strings set up having also played through the ceremony. The Marquee was set up beautifully by Selina Godsal Flowers for the wedding breakfast. Following a brilliant set of speeches the evening party kicked off back in the Garden Room as the happy couple and their guests partied the night away.
