I am delighted to share the wedding of Vic & Chris from Iscoyd Park. I photographed their wedding in November 2018 and it was fantastic. For elegance and sophistication, Iscoyd Park is the one. An exquisite, luxe space in the country, offering the perfect mix of Georgian refinement and modern sophistication. From the stunning, light Coach House to the sumptuous Garden Room, divine, bright Drawing Room and lavish marquee with its impressive chandeliers, these are beautiful spaces set in a resplendent collection of stunning English gardens.
Vic & Chris’s Wedding at Iscoyd Park
The day started off at the near by Willington Lodge where Victoria, her family and bridesmaids spent the night before the wedding. We then headed over to Iscoyd Park for the finishing touches and to get on the dress. Vic’s dad saw her for the first time just before setting off to the near by St Mary’s Church to tie the knot. I always love Dad’s reactions in the morning and today was no different.
St Mary’s Church, Iscoyd
The bridal party travelled with Chasing Rainbows Vintage Campers to the church from Iscoyd Park. This stunning parish church was constructed in 1838 with the clock added in 1898, although it does use some panelling from as early as 1696. The service was conducted by the Rev. Veronica Green and I have to say she was fantastic, it is so nice working alongside such fantastic people and being allowed to utilise the space in the church is such a great benefit as a wedding photographer.
Reception drinks at Iscoyd Park
It was soon time to leave and with all the guests waiting with confetti it was a great exit from the church. We then drove the short distance back to Iscoyd park fro canapés and reception drinks. With the lavish interior and beautiful architecture Iscoyd Park provides a fantastic space for the wedding to take place with guests enjoying some drinks! The guests were treated to the string quartet Athena Strings, they were fantastic and really added to the atmosphere.
Couples portraits at Iscoyd Park
Before the wedding breakfast and speeches we took some time to have a casual walk around the grounds of Iscoyd Park. It really is a stunning area of Shropshire. You can tell how happy Chris and Vic are and it was a pleasure photographing their wedding at Iscoyd Park.
Evening Reception at Iscoyd Park
After the wedding breakfast in the beautiful marquee there was some fantastic speeches and it was soon time for the evening reception. Manytones music were the band that the newly weds chose and they certainly know how to entertain. The wedding guests were soon on the dance floor after the first dance and father of the bride dance. It was a great evening and finished off with a couple of evening portraits outside of the impressive building.

History of Iscoyd Park
Iscoyd Park has been in the Godsal family since 1843 and in 2009 it underwent a restoration project to what it is today. A beautiful wedding venue that is the perfect place to tie the knot. I can’t wait to return to Iscoyd Park in Shropshire later this year!
The main house at Iscoyd Park dates back to 1737 but the estate dates back further. In the 14th century the estate was owned by the heirs of Iorweth Voel, Lord Maelor Saesneg. Fast forward to the Second World War, Iscoyd Park was a 1500 bed hospital for the United States with a prisoner of war camp on site as well. Colonel Godsal returned in 1946 and in 1957 Iscoyd Park was finally given back to the family. It is now one of the leading wedding venues in Shropshire and attracts couples from across the country to get wed.
