Wedding Photography at Swallows Nest Barn | Lisa & Adam’s Wedding

Wedding Photography at Swallows Nest Barn | Lisa & Adam’s Wedding

I love photographing at wedding venues across Warwickshire and all over the Midlands & it’s nice to get the opportunity to go to a new venues. I hadn’t photographed a wedding at Swallows Nest Barn before so I was looking forward to exploring around the venue 🙂

Lisa & Adam had booked Stuart & I to photograph & film their wedding. They had chosen to get married at St Alphegs in Solihull. St Alphege’s is not only a beautiful 800 year old Grade 1 Listed church but it also holds a personal significance for myself as it was my grandparent’s parish church.

After a beautiful service, a number of more traditional small family group photographs Lisa & Adam had asked during our pre wedding meeting if I would photograph & edit a special confetti shot – like an example they’d seen on my website from another wedding. Of course I was more than happy to oblige 🙂

Lisa & Adam’s wedding reception was being held at Swallows Nest Barn, which is a reinstated 19th Century barn – steeped in character and set in a valley of private farm land in the heart of the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.

Although a tad windy the sun was shining and with a quick change for Lisa from her beautiful bridal shoes into slightly more practical white wellies :-).  Lisa, Adam, Stuart & I went off to explore. After spending a little bit of time photographing some lovely couple shots using the pretty  backdrop of the wooded area, green fields & little brook we headed back to the barn for the remaining group shots.

Lisa & Adam had asked Stuart & I to film & photograph their wedding from the bridal prep through until the 1st dance. The speeches encompassed every emotion & I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room!

The evening kicked off with the cutting of the cake straight into Lisa & Adam’s 1st dance.

At the pre wedding meeting Lisa & Adam had also asked if I would mind going out with them, early evening, to the corn fields at the front of the Swallows Nest Barn.  With some ideas in mind, a little entourage of  inquisitive children in tow & my camera bag of random lights, umbrella and sparklers,  we headed off down the lane. As the evening drew to an end my head was already excitedly buzzing with the photographic edits, particularly the confetti shot & night time images.

Below are just a few wedding photographs captured from Lisa & Adams special day. Their full gallery of images can be viewed in the Client gallery. Please ask Lisa & Adam for their password.

Coombe Abbey Wedding photography | Marie & Julian’s Wedding

Coombe Abbey Wedding photography | Marie & Julian’s Wedding

Julian & Marie had chosen to have a Coombe Abbey Wedding, holding their special day in Coombe’s Marque on the beautiful East terrace.

I’m always very grateful when i receive a personal recommendation for my wedding photography 🙂 & after been given my details from his friend, Julian had called to talk about booking me as their wedding photographer.

The first thing I remember about Julian was his infectious laugh & how easy it was to chat with him. I knew this would be a lovely wedding to be part of. After we had gone through what he was looking for he also mentioned that he and Marie had wondered about having a wedding videographer.

As well as being Married, Stuart (kettell video productions) & I have worked together for years. Filming & photographing hundreds of weddings together throughout the whole of the UK including many Coombe Abbey Wedding’s.  To have another wonderful opportunity & to both be chosen to be part of Julian’s & Marie’s wedding was great 🙂

What a lovely day -as Stuart & I arrived at Coombe Abbey the Sun was shining, the weather was great & Julian didn’t stop smiling from the moment I saw him step out of the limousine. Marie & her ladies were equally as smiley. 😀

Julian & Marie has chosen to have their entire day filmed & photographed & afterward had asked me to produce a beautiful wedding album.

Below are just a few pages from the gorgeous wedding album I designed for then… & going by the bottle of champaign & very delicious box of choccies that they brought us as thank you gift… they were delighted by their wedding images, album & video.

Wedding Photography Wethele Manor Warickshire- David & Ilsa’s

Stuart & I have know Dave for a number of years after being privileged enough to photograph for the Peugeot Citroen DS Group for years. So to be asked to photography his & Ilsa’s wedding was simply the icing on the cake 🙂

Dave & Ilsa had chosen to get married at the idyllic 16th Century Wethele Manor Hotel .

Wethele Manor is a wonderfully family run exclusive wedding venue located just 2 miles from Royal Leamington Spa in the heart of Warwickshire. After photographing weddings there on numerous occasions I have always been impressed at the level of service offered by Simon & his team.

After spending the morning photographing Ilsa & her children in their preparation we then moved to Wethele Manor to meet with Dave & his best man.

Bridal Preparation

Wethele ManorGroom & Best Man Photo

As always, the setting had been beautifully decorated in preparation for the Wedding breakfast & after spending some time photographing all the small details which makes each wedding unique Stuart & I got ready for Ilsa’s arrival.

After a lovely emotional service, group & family photos we took Dave & Ilsa off around the grounds. Wow what a truly fun couple! Not only did their joy & complete Love for each other shine through but it made it such an overwhelming pleasure to photograph them both together. Some people & destined to be together & it was obvious that Dave & Ilsa certainly were 🙂

Above are just a few or the hundreds of images Stuart & I capture during Dave & Ilsa’s wedding.

Beth & Chris’s Wedding – St Peter’s Church Dunchurch, Warwickshire.

Beth & Chris’s Wedding – St Peter’s Church Dunchurch, Warwickshire.

Beth & Chris had chosen to get married in St Peter’s Church Dunchurch, Warwickshire followed by a reception in the beautiful settings of Beth’s Parent’s Home.

I had met with Beth & Chris a few weeks before their wedding to chat through what photographs they would like and what was most important to them, for me to capture.

As well as the traditional images and groups Beth & Chris really liked the more candid reportage style photos & so I suggested that I would bring one of my second photographers, Gemma to capture some additional images.  The suggestion of photographing the hard hats also cropped up & it’ll become clear as to why this was relevant!

The day of their wedding arrived & the weather was near perfect, always a good start 🙂

After spending the morning at the family home,with Beth & her family, where they we enjoying getting ready we then made our way to St Peter’s Church.

St Peter’s is a 14th century ‘usually’ picturesque church situated in the central square in Duchurch, however, for Beth & Chris’s wedding we had already been pre warned that St Peter’s was undergoing much needed major work on the tower & walls.  This had required the entire tower to be covered in scaffolding & sheet corrugated iron !  Fab for the church, not so great for wedding photographs! Beth & Chris had decided to embrace the ‘new look’ of the church rather than moan about the unfortunate backdrop & had even had two builder’s hard hats decorated by a friend, for the occasion.

After a lovely Church service & photos around the grounds … incorporating the hard hats! we made our way back to Beth’s family home , in Dunchurch, to carry on the celebrations. After capturing all of the group images Beth & Chris had requested we then got to spend some time around the grounds of their family farm home capturing posed & more natural shots of Beth & Chris. We maximised on the wonderful weather & fantastic props around the grounds including bales of hay & a great big red tractor :-).

The wedding reception was held in a superbly decorated marquee at the bottom of their garden.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a superb meal & the most amazing dessert (well it would have been rude to refuse!) before photographing the speeches.

Below are just a few of the images captured at Beth & Chris’s wedding.

 

 

If you or someone you know is getting married in and around Warwickshire (or even further afield!) & would like to chat about having your wedding photographed by a professional photographer please do not hesitate to call or email.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you x

Victoria Jane Photography -A short preview of my wedding photography

Victoria Jane Photography -A short preview of my wedding photography

Wow were has the time gone? My poor old blog has been rather neglected over the last year … although for a good reason 🙂 I decided to take a little less work on so I could play Mummy a little bit more to our new beautiful daughter Livy, who has just turned 1 !

Were to start ? I have so many fabulous weddings to add and some really exciting corporate jobs I’ve had the honour to photograph over the last year. But Rome wasn’t built in a day and so rather than try rushing to post everything I thought Id have a look back over the last year or so and design a little video showing some of my favourite wedding photographs.

Being a professional Wedding photographer is such a wonderful privilege.  Not only do I get to be part of your special day (& maybe even eat a slice of cake!) but I get to create memories for you that will last a life time… precious memories that you’ll be able to look back on in years to come and smile, and maybe even shed a tear, reminiscing about your amazing day. And I have been lucky enough to have been allowed to create those irreplaceable memories, frozen in time, for hundreds and hundreds of lovely couples.

So how can I choose my favourite images as I must have an archive of 100’s of thousands of images.  Well the honest answer is I couldn’t, as I have too many :-),  so instead I chose a handful of images which hopefully captures who I am a photographer and give you an idea about how passionate I am about what I can do for you. What ever your preferred style, relaxed reportage photography, more classic photography or even unique contemporary photography & I happy to listen to your hopes for your Special day.

I’d love to hear from you if you have an up coming Wedding and would like a professional photographer. From small intimate registry office weddings to Grand Stately Homes, Id love to be part of your special day, capturing & creating life long memories for you, and even more favourite photographs for me!

Fern and Kyle’s Wedding – Ardencote Manor, Warwick

Fern & Kyle had been recommended to us after we had photographed their friend, Michelle’s wedding a few years back. I always love it when couples contact you and tell you they’ve been recommended as it’s wonderful to know that your work has really been cherished & appreciated 🙂

As with all of my brides & groom, I like trying to meet up a few weeks before their special day to get to know them a little better, and vice versa, and to chat through their day… what they are looking forward to… what pictures they really want & what they don’t want 🙂

Fern was fantastically prepared and I had a great idea of the pictures they wanted capturing.

Fern & Kyle had also decided to book Stuart to film their wedding which meant I not only got to photograph their special day, but I got to spend the day with Stuart as well.  I decided to ask my friend & one of my 2nd shooters, Gemma to come out with me in order to capture more reportage style photography.

Fern & Kyle got married at St Giles Church in Exhall before having their wedding reception at the wonderful Ardencote Manor in Warwick.

Here are just a few of their photos from their wedding day!

Alisa & Sam were marries at St James parish Church in Bulkington before heading to Hatton Village Hall in Warwick, for their reception.
