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.

Wedding Photography @ Pageant House Warwick and Saxon Mill

Wedding Photography at the Pageant House and The Saxon Mill

On the 24th July, we covered the wedding photography of Naomi and Simon at the Pageant House Registry Office in Warwick and then onto the Saxon Mill Pub for the reception. I have covered lots of weddings at the Pageant House, out of all the Warwickshire Registry Offices it is one of the nicest especially because of the gardens at the back. The gardens were opened in 1908 and were the first public gardens in Warwick. The gardens were brought from the proceeds of the Warwick Pageant of 1906 and the name Pageant House is because the costumes for 1906 Pageant were made there.

The wedding day was lovely another small family wedding on a sunny day in July, after the ceremony and some family pictures in the Pageant House garden we headed to the Saxon Mill for a few more photos of the cutting of the cake and portraits of Simon and Naomi.

Wedding Photography at Stonehenge & The Hawk Conservancy Trust

_035

On 22nd April 2017 I provided the wedding photography for Sarah and Brett held at Stonehenge in Wiltshire and The Hawk Conservancy Trust in Hampshire.

I had done some work previously for Sarah and when she mentioned that she would like to employ me for her wedding at Stonehenge I was over the moon. Stonehenge is right up there as a national landmark with the Houses of Parliment and Big Ben.

I booked a hotel in Amesbury as the wedding day started at 6.00 am when all the guests met in the car park of Stonehenge to take the shuttle bus to the Stones. My working day started here, it was half light with a glimmer of orange on the horizon. I wanted to capture in the build-up of the guest arriving at the bus stop plus the orange horizon.

The dress code for the day was casual except Sarah and Brett were wearing capes and the high priests had traditional clothing on. Once at Stonehenge proper security advised us that we had exactly one hour for inside the stones and strictly no touching stones. Immediately ran ahead to capture landscape pictures of the stones before the procession arrived.

Pretty much as soon as the procession had arrived in the circle the service started, where I spent my time moving in and out of the stones capturing the emotions of the ceremony it was very unusual to be able to move 360 degrees around the subject. Usually, registers or vicars don't like to photographers to move too much in services, this was not the case here although I had two security guards watching my every move.

The ceremony lasted 45 minutes which left not much time to get some portraits of the Sarah and Brett and also allow them some time to take the scene in. I took some 500 images in the hour available I don't think I have ever taken so many images in such a short amount of time but I have never been to a wedding at Stonehenge before and didn't want to miss a single detail.

Then before I knew it the hour was over with a security guard ushering us back to the shuttle bus then straight back to the visitor centre.

After a small break and a half hour drive up the road, the next part of the wedding was at the Hawk Conservancy Trust. By now the sun was really shining, the morning at Stonehenge was quite dark and overcast but not now the sun shone.

Next up was a blessing in a wildflower meadow covered in cowslips, literally thousands are far as the eye could see. The blessing was very calm and tranquil then after the blessing, there was some confetti which made some beautiful pictures.

The rest of the day was spent watching the birds of prey shows interweaved with a three-course meal. It was a spectacular wedding day the handfasting ceremony in the morning was amazing and then wildflower meadow and the birds of prey it was fantastic. I rounded the day off with some portraits of Sarah and Brett in the wildflower meadow and then drive back to Warwick through the Cotswolds as the sunset - what a day!

day!

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.

Warwickshire Wedding Photographer

Warwickshire Wedding Photographer

On the 4th March I photographed Rebecca and Morgan for their wedding at the Pageant House Registry Office in Warwick. The wedding was a small affair with only a few guests but for what it lacked in guests it made up for in emotion. It was very touching to see this young couple tie the knot and afterwards the sun shone for some early spring pictures in the Pageant Garden.

Small Wedding @ Mallory Court Hotel, Warwickshire

2A4A9952

Back on the 19th December 2016, I provided wedding photography for a small family wedding at Mallory Court Hotel near to Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.  It was only a small gathering so I agreed on an hourly rate with an additional fee for a print box and USB stick.  

The Mallory Court is a lovely venue although I have never visited it in the summer always in the winter. Getting married were William and Leslie who had been partners for 25 years already, joining them were their sons and their girlfriends. 

The weather typical cold grey December day but with some added flash I was able to lighten the scene and create some flattering images for the family to keep as a reminder of their special day.

Wedding Photography at The Pageant House Warwick and The Glebe Hotel Barford

weddingphotography-4-of-7

On 22nd October 2017 I photographed the wedding of Tom and Beccy first at the Pageant House in Warwick and then onto The Glebe Hotel in Barford. Tom and Beccy are actually previous customers for whom I did studio family portraits for a few years ago. It was great to see them again and how their children had grown. 

The Pageant House it is the better of the two registry offices in Warwick with a nice interior and garden area.  This visit though was on a gorgeous autumn day when the trees where full turn and the light was fantastic. 

After doing some pictures in the service and in the gardens we headed to The Glebe Hotel in Barford. I have actually been to the Globe before but have driven past many times and wonder what it is like. It is a small hotel ideal for small weddings and I can see why Tom & Beccy booked it. 

In the garden, it has a large wall creeping plant that was in its full autumnal colour change which made a lovely backdrop for the couple photographs. 

Here a small selection of the one hundred and seventy three images given to Tom and Beccy for our two hour wedding photography package.

Wedding Photography at Wethele Manor 7th October 2016

Wedding_Photography_Wethele_Manor-82-of-88

On the 7th October 2016, I provided the wedding photography for the wedding of Richard and Samantha at Wethele Manor near Leamington in Warwickshire. This was my first visit to Wethele I was very impressed with the venue and its helpful staff.  The venue is a farmhouse style set up with a marquee and courtyard for outdoor weddings.  As you would expect from an October wedding the weather is always an issue especially with outside weddings but thankfully apart from being a little bit cold, the weather held out. 

It was great day Richard & Sam had gone for our all-day package, Rebecca started at 10.00 am for the bridal photographs and I started later to capture the rest of the preparations working through until late in the evening.   It was a fun day.

Warwickshire Wedding Photographer

Philip_Lena_0151

Over the summer I have provided wedding photography for several weddings all have been brilliant, I am thankful to the happy couples for employing me to cover their wedding days.  My aim with this blog is to update it a couple of times a week with what we've been up and show off work. However in busier times it is hard to make the time to write a blog and now I am somewhat behind. 

In August I covered the wedding for Philip & Lena, which was held at the Pagneant House in Warwick followed by a reception within the ballroom of the old Court House.

I booked for a few hours to cover the ceremony and the formal portraits and the general scene within two hours. Philip and Lena wanted a relaxed vintage feel to the photography whilst also capturing the pictures of the family groups that everyone loves.
