Will a fuschia grow here?

Hi everyone,

Hope you are well.

I have a very large fuschia bush in my garden which I love but unfortunately it takes up alot of room and also is hanging over my pathway. 

I was hoping to move it to the corner of my garden (adjacent to where it is now). I realise that digging it up will be very hard so I was hoping to take some cuttings and then use those.

The problem is that now it is in full sun most of the day and has been thriving since I moved here three years ago. I would say it's about five meters round. The place I want to move it to doesn't get any direct sun. It seems to get a bit of sun coming through the trellis but nothing like it does now.

My question is, would it grow well without the full sun? I really would like to keep it somehow. 

I have attached a photo if that helps.

I am new to this forum so apologies if I have missed anything.

    Fuschias do well in semi shade, so should not be a problem.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
