Hydrangeas generally do prefer some shade but get some moisture holding manure and compost in your soil....dont just bury it but mix it with your soil, prob 50/50.
Then a good thick organic mulch to keep that moisture in
So,,yes, I think you will be fine
Try the paniculata hydrangeas too Snarly...they do well in sun and generally easier and less fastidious than the lacecaps and mopheads.
