I have covered many weddings at the Pageant House in Warwick, it's a nice little venue that is ideally located in the Historic part of Warwick with the Castle in the background and the surrounding lanes which are all perfect for natural wedding photography. I am a big fan of capturing the flow and emotion of the wedding day, formal photographs do have their place as a record of the people that attended with natural shots they really do capture the feel of the day.
Rebecca & Nico got married on the first Saturday of the May bank holiday which was very sunny, it was almost a miracle considering that the previous week it had been was freezing cold, everybody was commenting on how lucky they were.
Like a lot of the weddings I cover at Pageant House this one was quite small with only a few guests of close friends and family, Rebecca and Nico also both arrived together to set the tone for a relaxed wedding, that was a close family affair with a few readings and then we left the ceremony room into the garden which was in full bloom of tulips.
They were some sporadic confetti throwing and lots of opportunities to capture their guests congratulating and enjoying the day, whilst I took some documentary style wedding photography of the group celebrating. We then did some formal groups as requested before the guests enjoyed some chilled Prosecco and then with the last fifteen minutes of my time we did some couple portraits in the surrounding lanes.
This was a two-hour booking which is ideal for small weddings, the following is a small sample of the 320 finished images delivered to Rebecca and Nico.
