Hannah and Niall were getting ready at the stunning Dodford Grange, and this lovely B&B is perfectly situated for Dodford Manor, so I’d definitely recommend it if you are looking for a place to stay the night before (or the night of) your wedding. It was a beautiful sunny morning and, although there had been a bit of rain earlier that morning, there was nothing but blue skies to be seen by the time I arrived to photograph their wedding prep. The space available at Dodford Grange is perfect for wedding preparations, and Hannah and the bridal party enjoyed a lovely relaxed brunch with champagne, fruits, pastries and antipasti before starting on hair and make-up - what better way to start off your wedding morning?! Niall was in a separate part of the house and had the perfect set-up with a snooker table and some funny props which made for a really fun atmosphere for the groom prep too!
Back with the girls, hair and make-upwere in full swing and it was a hive of activity, so I was able to get some great shots of all of the preparations and the stunning flowers, dress and shoes - I have to give a special mention to the shoes because they were so unique, and had an awesome colourful floral pattern on the soles as well, so it was great being able to get a few shots of these as I know Hannah loved them and they added something really special to her already gorgeous outfit! I also love the staircase at Dodford Grange which is the perfect place to get that all important dress shot!
