Davenport House weddings are next level and Sam and Jo’s wedding day was no exception. When they asked me to be their Davenport House wedding photographer, I knew it was going to be an awesome day! From the moment we first met, we immediately clicked – their warm personalities and genuine love for each other made it clear that their wedding day would be something truly special. Tucked away in the beautiful Shropshire countryside near Worfield, Davenport House is a place that feels like a second home to me. This gorgeous Georgian country house, built way back in 1727, is a dream wedding venue with its stunning architecture, lovely gardens, and peaceful lake. It’s the perfect spot for a day filled with love and celebration.

Being one of Davenport House’s recommended wedding photographers is a real honor for me. It’s a testament to the hard work I’ve put in over the years and the wonderful feedback from couples whose special days I’ve been lucky enough to document.

I’ve had the chance to shoot many weddings at Davenport House, and each one is unique and special in its own way. Whether it’s the beautiful gardens or the charming interiors, every corner of this venue offers a perfect backdrop for capturing unforgettable moments.

After 15 years as a wedding photographer, I’ve traveled all over the UK and even overseas to capture couples’ special days. I’ve seen a lot of unique venues, each with its own way of doing things. But Davenport House really stands out to me.

What makes Davenport House special is how much effort they put into every wedding and the way they treat each couple. From the moment you walk in, it feels like home. The venue offers full exclusivity, so you don’t have to worry about moving between different locations. This makes the day flow smoothly, allowing everyone to relax and enjoy.

No matter what time of year you’re getting married, Davenport House wedding venue has a variety of beautiful spots for your vows. Whether you choose the lovely outdoor areas or the charming interiors of the house, it’s a perfect choice for a magical day in any season.

One thing that really sets Davenport House apart is their dining experience. They use the finest, locally grown, and organic produce, making sure every ingredient is fresh and authentic. They even have their own vegetable garden on the grounds, so you know you’re getting the best of the season on your plate. And I’ve tried the food myself many times – it’s truly exceptional. The food here is always a highlight, adding something extra special to the day. The combination of their attention to detail, the beautiful surroundings, and the fantastic service makes Davenport House a truly standout wedding venue.

The day unfolded seamlessly, with Sam and the boys preparing at his parents’ house, while Jo and her squad enjoyed their morning preps at Davenport House. Jo and her bridal party started their day in the charming Stable Cottage before making their way up to the Honeymoon Suite in the main house. I always love when morning preps happen at the venue for a few reasons. Firstly, the bride and her party can truly relish in a stress-free morning and savor every moment. Secondly, it gives me the opportunity to familiarize myself with the location and capture some establishing shots of the venue bathed in the beautiful morning light.

Once the girls were ready, we made our way to the beautiful church. Jo arrived in style, using a super cool old Mini Cooper as her mode of transport. The highlight of this wedding was the fact that Sam’s father conducted the ceremony! After the heartfelt vows were exchanged, we all returned to Davenport House, where family and guests enjoyed a delightful drinks reception in the gardens. Meanwhile, I took the opportunity to capture natural mingling shots of the guests, followed by some traditional family group photos. We don’t spend too much time on posed photos; instead, we prefer to document each wedding in the most natural manner possible, and our couples are definitely big fans of that. However, we do dedicate a fraction of the day to capturing a few cherished family photos.

The time came for the wedding breakfast, followed by speeches in the elegant Dining Room. I’m a big fan of this room; from a photography point of view, it offers plenty of natural daylight thanks to the massive windows covering half of the room. This light creates a perfect setting for capturing those heartfelt moments during the speeches.

Photographing speeches is one of my favorite parts of the day. It gives me a different perspective to capture additional candid shots of guests and family, their reactions, and the genuine emotions shared in those moments.

As the sun began to set, I took advantage of the golden hour and stole the couple away for a few minutes to get some stunning shots. I always suggest allowing a few minutes in the evening for this, as the golden hour light is incredibly soft and beautiful, adding a magical touch to the photos.

Once the evening rolled in, the real fun began. Sam and Jo, along with their guests, are real party animals, and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves on the busy dance floor. With Apollo Soul performing, you know the party is going to be crazy good. The energy was incredible, and capturing those lively moments was an absolute blast.

I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to Davenport House for their continuous support and for always providing such an incredible venue for couples to celebrate their special day. Your dedication to creating a seamless and welcoming experience for everyone is truly commendable, and it’s always a pleasure to work with your fantastic team.

And of course, a huge thank you to Sam and Jo for trusting me to be their Davenport House wedding photographer. It was an honor to capture the love and joy of your special day. Your warmth and enthusiasm made it an unforgettable experience, and I’m so grateful to have been a part of it. Here’s to many more beautiful weddings at Davenport House and to capturing more wonderful memories for amazing couples like you!
