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.
