We really enjoyed this wedding! Laura and Danny are such a lovely couple; the sort of people that you warm to immediately! I knew in our first meeting that I wanted to photograph their wedding and that they would be the sort of people that would appreciate the effort that we go to. I could tell this simply by the effort that they, and their family and friends, have obviously gone to in order to make their day that extra bit special.
We started off by travelling to Laura’s lovely family home in Crick for some bridal preparation photographs. We spent an hour or so taking photographs of some of the little details that added to the day; the beautiful flowers in their garden, the specially chosen shoes and dresses for Laura and her bridesmaids, the decor of the house, Jewellery etc…. as well as some quiet family photographs in the back garden.
From there, a short walk up to St. Margaret’s church, which unfortunately was steeped in scaffolding due to recent restoration work (I dare you to see it in the photos though!). Gary was at the back during the service, sometimes at floor level and discretely and silently moving up onto the organist balcony for a better viewpoint. I stayed at the front to capture the ‘action’ close-up.
After some group photos in the church grounds and a nice confetti shot we all drove to the very lovely and relaxing Wethele Manor near to Leamington Spa. This was a new Warwickshire venue for us but I’ve no doubt we’ll be back there some time soon. We did some more group photographs as well as some of Laura and Danny on their own before going inside the impressive marquee for the fantastic food supplied by Aubrey Allen catering. In the evening there was a disco, plenty of relaxing for guests outside in the sunshine and our photo booth proved, once again, to be a a real highlight and a source of great amusement.
