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 at Walton Hall, Wellesboune – Laura & Ben’s Wedding

Wedding Photography at Walton Hall, Wellesboune – Laura & Ben’s Wedding

Stuart (kettell video production)  & I, again, had the pleasure of photographing & filming another wedding together. Laura & Ben had chosen the lovely Walton Hall in Wellesbourne. Nestled in 65 acres of picturesque countryside in Warwickshire Walton Hall Hotel charming hotel & a perfect setting for Laura & Ben to hold their wedding service & then their reception. The day had started off a little drizzley but this definitely didn’t put a dampener on things! & as luck would have it by the time we went out side to photograph, the weather was just perfect.

Ben & Laura had asked if we could an arial heart shape group shot & walton hall has a perfect balcony for such a shot :-). After fairly quickly organising all of their wedding guests in to probably the best heart shape I’ve done to date, with lots of pointing & arm waving from up high, Ben & Laura proudly took centre stage in order to capture their stunning group shot.

Group shots & games on the lawn followed & while guest were making the most of the beautiful grounds & the entertainment, we took Laura & Ben off for a little while to capture their couple shots.

We walked out to the far side of the lake & carefully negotiating a route around the duck poo! allowed us to photograph my favourite two images or Laura & Ben from their day.

Here is just a sneaky peek of some of their images from their day🙂

All of their images are now available to view on my main website. If you are a friend or family member please ask Laura & Ben for their password.

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

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!

Nicki & Rob’s Wedding at Allesley Church & Brandon Hall

A job doesn’t get much better when you can combine everything you love. My passion for photography, getting to be creating with wonderful wedding dresses, pretty flowers, sparkly jewellery, working with Stuart who was 2nd shooting with me on this wedding, celebrating special occasions with happy people & of course … cake! So how pleased was I that I could combine all of these with Nicki & Rob’s Wedding.

Nicki & Rob popped over a few weeks before their wedding to chat through their day & have a few informal practise shots as they were a little nervous about having their pictures taken.  I know they were nervous but they really had no need to be.  They are a lovely couple with great personalities & who obviously adore each other & this shone through in the images I captured   :).

Stuart & I headed to Nicki’s house to first capture all the pretty details of the dress, shoes, flowers etc as well as Nicki & her bridesmaids’ preparation.  It was clear from the beginning that this was going to be a lovely feel-good wedding.

After spending some time with the girls we headed to Allesley Church in Coventry to photograph Rob with his two best men & usher.  Rob was happy for fun & formal photograph so we made the most of it by getting the lads to star jump & give Rob the bumps!

It was a lovely service conducted by Robin &, once finished, we spent a little time getting some of the group shots Nicki & Rob had asked for, as well as the first of the shots of Nicki & Rob as husband & wife.

After a cheeky glass of Champaign, the happy couple made their way to Brandon Hall in style in a lovely 1933 Rolls Royce convertible, courtesy of Chris from C.G.Wedding cars

We’d had a bad spell with the weather & I knew Nicki had been worried that her wedding would be a wash out.  She’d hired out some lovely pretty white parasol type umbrellas.  Nicki hadn’t needed to have been worried as the weather ended up being glorious.  However, it would have been an awful waste to not have used the parasols & as well as some lovely shots with the couple we had great fun with the youngest bridesmaid and Nicki’s two cheeky twin brothers.

We finished our photographic coverage after the speeches, which went down very well, particularly the double act from the best men which comprised of a slide show, showing various embarrassing photos as well as reminiscing about the antics of a younger Rob.

Nicki & Rob’s wedding was a fantastic & fun wedding to photograph. Below are a few of my favourite images we took from the day.
