Rosey and Sean Wedding Photography at the Warwickshire Golf Club

warwickshirewedding-3021-of-46

On the 30th July I covered the wedding of Rosey and Sean for a whole day wedding photography package from the bridal preparations to the first dance. The wedding service was held at St Martins Church on the Rugby Road in Leamington Spa with the reception held at The Warwickshire Golf Club. The day started for Rebecca my colleague at The Travel Lodge in Leamington and for me at the church an hour later. This is the advantage of having two wedding photographers because we can be in two places at once and also when in the same location take photographs of the same subject from different aspects.    

All went well for the bridal prep but at the church the vicar told me that pictures were not allowed during the ceremony, which was disappointing but sometimes vicars and registrars can be awkward it is few and far between though.   If I am honest I did sneak in a few pictures of crucial moments of the service from the back of the church because I am being paid to take photographs and if I have to bend the rules a little bit I will do as long as it doesn't upset anyone.  

For the transportation of guests a vintage double decker bus had been hired and for the bride and groom a horse and carriage to take them to The Warwickshire and with my local knowledge we were able to drive around the back lanes and arrive at the venue before the bus and the carriage.

The weather at the venue was sunny but we some cloud, the speeches were very good with a brutal best mans speech and then surprise or two for the guests with the announcement that Rosey was pregnant and the surprise guest of Steve Bull a famous Wolves football player arriving at the end of the speeches Rosey is a Wolves fan and Sean a Leicester Fan.

I  rounded the day off with a drone video selfie of the wedding crowd and the venue in the background. I am a qualified and insured drone (uav pilot) the Warwickshire has loads of space so I thought why not try a selfie as a bonus for the happy couple.  After this I left just after the first dance it was an enjoyable day here is small sample of the 500 images that were supplied to the Happy couple.

Alex & Jim Wedding Photography at Lord Leycester Hospital

2A4A0360

The Lord Leycester is great venue and one of my favourite places in to do Wedding Photography in Warwick because unlike most venues it is a charity that looks after retired service men and they're wives. Similar to the Chelsea Pensioners the "Brothers" who run the Lord Leycester are all ex services who run the building under the supervision of a "master" a retired officer in return for their lodgings. Also the venue is a fantastic building and my hope that is the more weddings that are held there the more money can be invested in its upkeep.

Warwickshire Wedding Photographer

weddingphotography-20-of-26

On Saturday 11th June provided the Wedding Photography for Chris & Katherine Fenwick at the Lord Leycester Hospital in Warwick. The Lord Leycester Hospital is such a picturesque building with well kept gardens as well as the brothers on hand to help out.

I was booked for a two hour coverage package which is very popular for couples that want wedding photography of the service the signing of the register, portraits plus pictures of families and friends but without committing to hiring a wedding photographer all day.

The day started at The Rose and Crown pub for the bridal party then onto the Lord. The weather was kind to us despite there being some rain earlier in the day , it was a very happy relaxed wedding.

Graduation Photography Warwick University

I always enjoy new challenges and opportunities, earlier this month I was employed by a family to photograph their daughters graduation at Warwick University.

This being my first job doing graduation photography, I did a bit of research which told me that graduation photography is usually traditional posed photographs in front of a screen. Which is kind of boring but necessary for photographing hundreds of graduates with their degree certificates and not everyone is able to have there own professional photographer. 

Drawing on my experience with wedding photography I was able to take pictures of the main ceremony, family and friends groups as well as some fun, natural portraits. In the ceremony it was very dark but we the right camera settings and a combination of the right vantage point I was able fulfill my clients brief. Outside it was a very dull cloudy day,  to counter the dull conditions I gave the pictures a warmer sunnier look.

Event Photography Cafe Rouge Leamington Spa

On the 30th October I was employed to provide event photography at the re-launch event of Cafe Rouge in Leamington Spa.  The purpose of the event was to show off the newly devised wine list created by wine expert Mathew Jukes as well as the skills of the kitchen staff to create dishes that work well with the wine.

Photography wise it was quite challenging because the restaurants is very dimly lit throughout, which really gave me the only option of using my flash gun.  That said I did get some time to create some available light shots with Mathew and the Cafe Rouge branded Citroen 2CV outside by Royal Priors

Natasha & John Wedding Photography

On the 5th August it was the wedding of Natasha & John who got married in Bournemouth Registry office and then had a humanist wedding ceremony on the beach at Mudeford, close to Christchurch in Dorset. It was a intimate affair but for what it lacked in size it made up for in impact. After the registry office ceremony we headed to Christchurch where we a ferry boat had been laid on to take us to Mudeford beach and then the service was held on the beach.

It was a great experience to photograph a wedding on a beach and not something I had expected to happen since Warwick is one of the furthest places from the sea in the UK and John didn’t actually mention the ceremony was happening on the beach until the day!

Wedding Photography & Events July - August 2014

From mid-July to mid-August was a busy month for wedding photography and event photography in Warwickshire.

The first wedding was for Alyson & Rob who got married at Winton House Registry Office in Stratford-upon-Avon then afterwards a small gathering of friends and family at the Baraset Barn in Alveston, near Stratford-upon-Avon

My brief was to cover the service and reception in reportage style wedding photography whilst also getting the traditional shots that remain a staple of any wedding. The assignment in total was just two hours, but however long I am hired for is just as important as an all-day assignment and I will put as much effort in as is required to get the pictures.

It was a very enjoyable few hours where the weather was the best it had been for a few days and all there was plenty of opportunity for getting the photographs I needed.



My next event was a 50th Birthday party for a local Warwick businessman held at Ashorne Hill, just outside Warwick. My brief here was to capture candid event photography of James’ guests enjoying the activities in the day time and then photograph the couples before they headed into the evening meal.

First of all I didn’t even know Ashorne Hill existed, but what lovely venue that is well worth checking out.  James had laid on sports activities, a BBQ and access to the venues leisure facilities for all his guests in the daytime and then a relaxed formal meal.  The weather was absolutely perfect probably the best day so far this year and James had created a relaxed atmosphere where I was able to capture many relaxed portraits of his guests.



On the 2nd August it was the wedding of Caroline & David, the service was held at St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Whitnash with the reception at Whitnash Golf Club.  I really enjoyed this wedding because over the last six months I’ve have got to know Caroline & David through the planning and the pre wedding engagement portraits.   It was great to see all the guests and the happy couple enjoy an emotional and very happy day.
