Stirk House Winter Wedding
Even the Beast from the East couldn’t stop these two Acid Brass badasses getting married! Winter was in full swing ‘to say the least’ at Stirk House for the winter wedding of Jo and Phil.
It’s not just the freezing weather that gives me goose bumps when thinking about Jo and Phil’s day. Knowing that many of their family and friends travelled far and wide through some of the toughest weather conditions the Northwest has seen in donkey’s years – doesn’t half give me goose bumps too. The love for Jo and Phil was truly in the air at Stirk House that day.
Perhaps I’m being a bit soppy. Perhaps it’s because it’s got me thinking back to my near death experience. On the way to Stirk House The Beast from the East nearly got the better of me as my car and I slid, spinning 360 degrees down a country lane. That pesky black ice!!! Fear not, I soldered on an arrived, to instantly be put at ease by the welcoming staff. One of the staff members is a bit of a legend in the wedding hospitality world. Some lucky couples will have the opportunity to have Dave ensure your day runs smoothly. He’s a true gent who works his socks off to make sure you have a smashing time.
The beauty about Stirk House is that even on a harsh winter’s day, the light in the ceremony room and the bridal suite is simply stunning. Sure it can be a little disappointing to have bad weather on your wedding day. If you do a little research and choose a great venue, the weather definitely can’t put a dampener on such a special occasion. Jo and Phil sure didn’t let the winter weather effect them. Usually I whisk couples off for a few minutes outside to take some modern un-posed portraits. It was a touch cold and wet on this occasion. This wasn’t a problem at all as there is a stunning backdrop inside the orangery. Why not take a look see…
