Rebecca & Nico Wedding Photography at the Pageant Registry Office Warwick, Warwickshire

Wedding-Photography-Warwickshire014

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.

Stephen and Katy Wedding Photography at the Henley Room Registry Office Stratford-upon-Avon

wedding_photography_henley_room_stratford01

On the 9th December, I provided wedding photography at the new Henley Room Registry Office in Stratford-upon-Avon.  I have done lots of weddings at the old Winton House Venue in Stratford and although Winton House was on a quieter street the interior of the new venue at Henley Room is much brighter and better decorated.

The only downside to the new venue is when the Market is on like it was when I was there, there is no room to spill out of the venue onto the street as the market stalls are in the way.

On the day itself, it was a very bright sunny but cold day, Stephen and Katy had only booked me for an hour just to cover service and for some photos afterwards, my time with them was brief but I still managed to capture 198 images for them to keep of the ceremony pictures afterwards.

It was very cold on the day so instead of heading down to the Bancroft Gardens for some photos we stayed around the venue, the Henley Rooms don’t have any gardens but there is a small patch of ground next to the Shakespeare Birthplace that we used for photos until the security guard told us to move.

It was nice little wedding and congratulations to Stephen and Katy.

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 St Nicholas Church Alcester and Kings Court Hotel Alcester

2A4A0307

On Saturday 6th May 2017 I was employed to do the wedding photography for Emma & Owen for a blessing at St Nicholas Church in Alcester with a reception at Kings Court Hotel in also in Alcester.

The event had all the trappings of a full-blown wedding but it was, in fact, a blessing because Emma and Owen had already tied the knot in Jamacia the week previous.

This was my first trip to St Nicholas Church in Alcester, it is a lovely church with a nice teal coloured ceiling and plasterwork. I am somewhat of a fan of visiting churches but that is another story.

The day started and ended at the Kings Court Hotel with a vintage white Rolls Royce as transport between venues, the weather was cloudy but we made the best of the weather. The bridal party was in full traditional clothing with Emma looking stunning in a traditional wedding dress. My aim with all wedding photography is to capture the day as it unfolds and to not interfere too much in the events instead concentrating on capturing the mood. This approach leads to more natural photos which is exactly the brief Emma gave me when I was booked.

Below are a few examples of the photographs out of over 300 taken.

Jon & Corrie Wedding Photography Warwick House Southam

Jon & Corrie Wedding Photography Warwick House Southam​



​On the 31st March, I provided the wedding photography for Jon and Corrie at Warwick House wedding venue in Southam, Warwickshire. Jon and Corrie had approached me because I have been to Warwick House a few times as a wedding photographer I was able to be flexible in the wedding photography coverage offered and they liked my work. 

I have been a wedding photographer now for eight years although my business is not purely wedding photography, it does mean that all the experience I have learnt from the various types photography that I do and my equipment is used to the full when I do weddings. 

On the wedding day itself, the weather was changeable so it was decided to have the wedding inside the venue the preference was outside but it wasn't realistic because of the wet ground, unfortunately.  When I arrived I started by photographing the guests arriving up until the service and into service itself, I like to stand back and capture the events as they unfold at this stage. 

Once the wedding service at finished we headed outside for more reportage style wedding photography then onto the gardens at the back of the venue for the groups and the portraits of Jon and Corrie.   Then on our way back around to the front of the building, I was able to capture some relaxed portraits under a tree, with the low sun and the white washed frontage to the building the images had a Mediterranean feeling to them. 

All in all, it was a great wedding from my perspective a couple of hours flat out from which I delivered 170 edited images supplied copyright free for Jon and Corrie's use.

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.

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.
