Wedding Photography Burton Dassett Warwickshire

weddingphotography18

On the 2nd August, I did the wedding photography for Daniel and Sami at the Pageant House in Warwick and then we headed off to Burton Dassett for photos and then Burton Dassett Village Hall.   The wedding had a Beauty and the Beast Disney theme which was very original, Sami wore a classic wedding dress and Daniel wore a suit from Beauty and the Beast.

Burton Dassett is an original location for photographs, its a popular place for kite flying and walking but a lot of people commented that they'd never seen a wedding party up there which shows the genius of Daniel and Sami for picking not only an original theme for there wedding but an original location as well.   The ceremony was at the Pageant House in Warwick where we did some group photos and I captured candid shots but after this, I ran to my car to try so that I could beat everybody to the hills so that I could get some shots as they arrived in their Beauford Wedding car. 

I took some photos as they arrived from the hill overlooking the road, after this I met up with them at the car did some couple shots on the road that leads to the Beacon and then we did the group photos, by this time through the sun really very hot so I was mindful to get these done so that everybody could get to the wedding venue and out of the sun. 

For the wedding venue, they had hired Burton Dassett village hall and a bouncy castle for the kids set up outside, inside they had decorated the room into a Disney theme including a cake inspired by the Disney film Up.  The afternoon was very relaxed with kids and adults playing on the bouncy castle and dancing inside and then we finished the day with a few photos taken on top of the hills at sunset.  All in all, it was a great day that I really enjoyed photographing it was very colourful. Daniel and Sami have asked me not to publish any photos that include their children, therefore, a lot of photos are missing but the few below should give you an idea of the day.

Corporate Photography Leamington Spa Warwickshire

Corporate-Head-Shots

A recent corporate photography request was to photograph a whole company in one image for use on the business's website. The initial email request was for the work to be done in my studio, however, my studio is really only large enough for twelve people maximum at a time and these guys wanted to bring thirty plus! 

I often do location shoots for all kinds of work so I suggested to the company that we do these photos in a hall close to their offices in Leamington. It was then that I remembered that Leamington Town Hall can be hired out for meetings and this is right next to there offices so the stage was set for a large group photo for corporate photography. 

The plan was to cut the people out from the background to be placed onto a white background, the same as a previous photo they had done some years earlier. I know from previous experience it is not easy to cut out large groups onto different coloured backgrounds to make good looking images. And because I didn't have both a large enough white background and a large enough white section of flooring for them to stand on I chose to just have the white under there feet this made making the final photo much easier and realistic because the feet and the shadow were correct I only needed to worry about the background. 

The finished image was also to be further edited by the web developers to fit their specification. 

I was also asked to create some headshots for the directors of the company.

Wedding Photography Engagement Shoot

2A4A0644

Last week I met up with Sally and Steve for their pre-wedding engagement shoot, they are getting married at Malory Court Hotel next spring.  When Sally and Steve booked me for their wedding photography we discussed locations for the engagement shoot Sally suggested including her horse Molly.  I have done a few bits of work over the years involving horses and I am always keen to try anything.  We set a date and a place and naturally, for October the weather was absolutely awful, very high winds and drizzle on the day. 

I don't mind getting wet as long as we get the portraits and because Sally and Steve are outdoor types they weren't bothered either, when the rain really came down we headed for the barn and when it stopped we headed out into the fields.  These are my favourite images out of a set of nearly eighty images.

Spring Wedding in Warwick at Hill Close Gardens

Spring Wedding in Warwick at Hill Close Gardens

On the 25th March 2017, I provided the wedding photographer Warwickshire for Rachel and Paul at Pageant House in Warwick. Followed by the reception and drinks at Hill Close Gardens. 

After a long winter, the weather that weekend was the first proper blast of the sunshine we had seen in a long time. Perfect blue sky mixed with spring flowers, blossom and bloom lead to a special wedding.  We did their engagement photos on a cold, grey January day so it made the perfect change to have a sunny wedding. It was a great day enjoyed by all.

Shortly I will be off to Warwick Castle to photograph my last Wedding of 2016 and my second December wedding this year.  First though I thought I'd share a Happy New Year message.

Warwick Folk Festival Morris Dancers

I am fan of the more unusual aspects of English culture, over the years I have visited a number of events such the Cheese Rolling in Gloucester, The Cotswold Olimpicks in Chipping Campden (a personal favourite), The World Nettle Eating Championships in Marshwood Dorset, Tar Barrells Ottery St Mary Devon all of these events require the willing participation of people who a little bit eccentric.   But after seeing the dance parade at Warwick Folk Festival on Saturday I have come to the conclusion that Morris Dancers are also slightly crazy.. 

The Squire & Squire Photography studio overlooks Market Place in Warwick, so it was an ideal vantage point to capture the parade as it went past!!
