Happy New Year from Squire and Squire Photography

Happy New Year from Squire & Squire Photography

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.

2016 has been an enjoyable year where we've made many new friends / clients in all areas of the business.  February 2017 will be our fifth year anniversary at our studio at 1 Market Place, Warwick and my eighth year as a full time photographer.

 

I feel very privileged to be in the position that I am in and look forward to and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

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.

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.
