A blog post about wedding photography at The Saxon Mill Warwickshire, of Louise and Rob who booked me for a short but intense two hours of wedding photography.
On the 8th September 2018, I did the wedding photography for Sam & Steve at The Pageant House in Warwick. This was quite an unusual wedding for me because I was only booked for one hour, but with registry office weddings an hour is sometimes all you need and because my studio is based just around the corner from the venue it's even easier to cover small weddings.
Squire & Squire Photography was established in December 2009 which makes the business Ten years old which is amazing. In the last ten years I have spent vast amounts of time trying to understand Joomla the software that runs the website.
Joomla was recommended to me as friend and it has been brilliant but after many upgrades from Joomla 1.5 to 3.9, many many plugin updates and countless incidents of me breaking the website. I finally think it is time the have a fresh start with a new website and a new content management system. So here is the new site after a lot of work swapping the old data from the old website.
My hope that this site will last another ten years and work a lot better than the old one did, as I say I enjoyed using Joomla but ultimately my coding skills weren’t that great.
On the 4th August, I did the Wedding Photography Warwickshire at the Henley Room Registry Office for Lisa and Marcus. I'd been booked for my six-hour package to cover the morning bridal preparations through the first dance in the evening.
On the 2nd August, I did the wedding photography for Daniel and Sami at the Pageant House in Warwick and then we headed off to Burton Dassett for photos and then Burton Dassett Village Hall. The wedding had a Beauty and the Beast Disney theme which was very original, Sami wore a classic wedding dress and Daniel wore a suit from Beauty and the Beast.
At the end of July, I photographed the wedding of Megan & Tim who got married at the Pageant House registry office in Warwick. I have provided the wedding photography for many weddings at Warwick Registry Office but even though I have been then many times, each wedding is always different and the feel of the images different each time.
A recent corporate photography request was to photograph a whole company in one image for use on the business's website. The initial email request was for the work to be done in my studio, however, my studio is really only large enough for twelve people maximum at a time and these guys wanted to bring thirty plus!
Congratulations Sally & Steve who got married at the Mallory Court Hotel in June. I was booked to capture the wedding photography all day from the getting ready preparations through to the first dance in the evening. I have provided wedding photography at the Mallory Court a number of times, it really is a lovely venue. For Sally and Steves wedding though it was a day filled with laughter, love and probably the most detailed father of the bride speech that has ever been told.
Sally and Steve are a lovely couple we did engagement portraits in October with Sally's horse Honey. The weather could not have been worse it was windy and rainy but we still got some good shots! Fast forward to their wedding day and the weather was perfect - nice and sunny with some cloud diffusion.
For me, the day started splitting my time between the bridal prep and the arrival of the guests, at the Mallory Court it is easy to do as the venue isn't too big. The morning ran like clockwork Sally and her father are keen organisers. The ceremony was held in the drawing room which was very calm although the most emotional person was the father of the bride.
After the ceremony, everyone spilled out into the gardens at the back of the venue for a few hours whilst we did the formal photos and everybody had some time to relax with canapes. The drawing room was transformed for the wedding breakfast and then came the speeches, where the father of the bride had recorded Sally's life story including a hilarious begging letter that he'd kept from her childhood.
At this point, there was a break and then everybody returned to for the evening festivities, during this break I also did some wedding portraits of Sally and Steve around the venue. It was a fun day and it was good to see these two tie knot after getting to know them so well over the last year.

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.
On Saturday 7th April I had a lovely day as the wedding photographer for the wedding of James and Carly who got married at the Pageant House in Warwick.
We are a local established headshot photographer in Warwickshire, our studio is located at 1 Market Place in Warwick town centre this position is ideal to serve Warwickshire for location shoots or for studio visits.
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.
A recent project was to provide product photography for a Warwick based business who required a product photographer to create product images for a new website that is being developed for their company.
The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust founded in 1545 is an ancient trust that shares the income from the Old Town of Warwick to help the community. For hundreds of years it has been contributing to the upkeep of our churches and enabled our best and brightest to attend Warwicks public schools. In September I was asked to Business Portraits of the Trustees to be used for a new website that is still under development. I was honoured to be asked to do this work, as usual with all portraits I have done for all types of organisations I had very little time allowed with each person to get the job done.
I decided to go with a low key style lighting set up that created portraits that are a bit more interesting than standard white background portraits.
