End to 2017 |The wedding photos you didn't see | Wedding Photography | Scott Stockwell Photography by scott stockwell

2017... What a crazy year its been!

I've noticed lots of people on social media sharing their most popular or best photographs from 2017, but I wanted to do something a bit different.I'm always trying to show you my best images on my social media pages and blog posts; but for my look back through 2017 I want to show you the pictures that I would not normally post but I was pleased I captured.


Happy new year :) 




Matt & Sarah | Aston Marina, Stone, Staffordshire | Wedding Blog by scott stockwell

The day started at Matt's parents home, where Sarah and her band of bridesmaids were getting ready. I then joined Matt who was waiting nervously at Stafford Elim Christian Centre.The nerves soon seemed to disappear as soon as he saw Sarah walking down the aisle towards him. It was very atmospheric with music playing throughout the ceremony. 

Once the ceremony finished guests enjoyed food & beverages at Aston Marina in the boat house. A lovely venue nestled in the Staffordshire countryside with a marina proved a perfect backdrop for photos. A break in the clouds was welcome as well as catching photos during some picturesque golden hour light taking us into the evening.

It was a pleasure to capture Matt & Sarah's great energy and I wish them both the best for the future :)

Steven & Andrea's Wedding | Birmingham city centre | Wedding Blog by scott stockwell

I didn't shoot bridal preparations for this wedding although instead I joined Steven and the majority of his wedding party at The Alchemist Bar In Birmingham which was a nice change. I loved shooting the relaxed atmosphere while the guests enjoyed a drink and capturing Steven nervously taking sips from his whiskey glass :)

The Birmingham Registry office was just around the corner where Andrea arrived looking stunning! After the ceremony we made our way over to Marco Pierre White Steakhouse for the wedding breakfast which has amazing views over Birmingham. This was then followed by a trip to Sutton Park Where we did a few more shots of Steven & Andrea on their own. Steven chose this beautiful spot to propose to Andrea, it was nice that Steven & Andrea were willing to take the extra time away from their guests for a few snaps at this location. The finishing stop was The Green House where guests were welcomed by an open bar and band playing through out the night.

Great day with amazing atmosphere throughout, I wish you both the best for the future!

Josh & Naomi’s wedding at Priors Tithe Barn by scott stockwell

I had the pleasure of shooting Josh & Naomi's wedding back in August, the sun was out in full force and was probably one of the hottest days I have shot a wedding. Priors Tithe Barn dates back to the 13th century which features a beautiful manor house and barn, nestled in the countryside surrounded by gardens full of roses and wild flowers. When Josh & Naomi and I first met at the venue Naomi told me that king Henry VIII was rumoured to have stayed here with Anne Boleyn! 

I have added some photos of the day below. I wish Naomi and Josh all the best for the future :)

Katie & Victoria's wedding by scott stockwell

After meeting Katie & Victoria for a quick chat about their wedding over coffee & tea I could tell they were both such a lovely, friendly, down to earth couple and that shooting their wedding was going to be lots of fun. We had some beautiful weather on the day, which was perfect because the ceremony was held at Sandwell registry office which has a lovely garden for photos. The ceremony was then followed by drinks, food and dancing at the Strathallen Menzies Hotel.

I have also included some of the engagement shoot photos with this post as I seem to have missed writing a blog about it. The engagement shoot was held at Sandwell Valley.

I wish Katie and Victoria all the best in the future :)

Tom & Emma's Wedding, Birtsmortan Court 25/05/15 by scott stockwell

   I have wanted to feature Tom & Emma's wedding at Birtsmortan Court on my blog for a while. Surrounded in beautiful countryside with its eye catching buildings and lovely gardens along with Tom & Emma's personal touches it did make the whole day feel real special :).

I first heard from Tom & Emma about a year ago when I was starting out my business and we were connected through friends of friends of friends etc. Emma's father also use to be a pro wedding photographer but now a photo enthusiast, so it did feel like a bit of an honour to be chosen to be the photographer for the day.

Tom & Emma are a lovely couple who I hope have a happy and long future together & it was a pleasure to shoot there wedding :)

Adam & Ria's Wedding, Curradine Barns, 18/05/15 by scott stockwell

A new blog post for a newly married couple the lovely Adam & Ria or Mr & Mrs Phelpotts :)

I have really been looking forward to sharing this wedding with everyone. I already knew Ria so it was really nice to celebrate this day as a guest and a photographer. Their day started off with lots of dark clouds and rain, I could tell Ria was slightly worried during her bridal preparations about the rain.  However as the guests started to arrive the sun made an appearance, and along with the summery theme of sunflowers it felt like a warm summers day.

The venue was lovely and intimate; and their personal touches such as sunflowers and morroccan lanterns created a magical setting. Overall was a fantastic Wedding and wish Adam & Ria a long happy marriage and the best for the future.

Ria is a Jewellery designer and made her own wedding rings they were really unique you can see more of her designs here :

I have posted a few images of the day below for you all to view :)
