Staffordshire Wedding venues – Somerford Hall

This is the first of a short series of reviews of some of our favourite local wedding venues.

Somerford Hall is an elegant palladian mansion house situated between Wolverhampton and Penkridge near the village of Brewood – and is one of our favourite wedding venues.


We have photographed so many  weddings there – even including a member of staff!  Somerford is what we call a “safe” venue – as there is plenty to work with both indoors and out – so your photographs will always turn out great – whatever the weather. It’s also a lovely and impressive location for your guests – with a spectacular entrance driveway – and is totally surrounded by over 100 acres of Staffordshire countryside.

There is a choice of two ceremony rooms – depending on the number of guests. Both offer elegant and comfortable locations for the pivotal point – and most emotional time of your big day.



The friendly and efficient staff at Somerford always ensure your day runs smoothly – and we always work very closely with them to ensure the day plan is adhered to – whilst at the same time getting those spectacular photos you long for.



The gardens are an ideal place for both your personal and family photos – and the hidden folly is a surefire photo opportunity!


We always hear great feedback about the food at Somerford – and on the occasions we have sampled it ourselves – we are more than inclined to agree with the wedding guests!

Towards the end of the day the Hall transforms itself into your perfect party venue – with adequate space for a band if you so wish – with plenty of room left to dance the night away!


And if some our your guests want to have a quiet interlude during the evening , the bar or library offer a chance to sit somewhere a bit more secluded – whilst remaining part of the party.


Importantly Somerford Hall also offers onsite accommodation for you and your guests. So no inconvenient taxis at the end of your day!

Quite often at wedding fayres we talk to couples who are still searching for their ideal wedding venue. When we hear the type of venue they are looking for we regularly suggest Somerford Hall – and a few of these have come back and booked us after booking Somerford.

So if you like the views of Somerford Hall above – why not go and have a look for yourselves – and then maybe think about us as your wedding photographers!
