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 ūüôā

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

Wow were has the time gone? My poor old blog has been rather neglected over the last year … although for a good reason ūüôā 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!

Sinead and Matthew | Wedding Photography at Abbey Church, Erdington, The Boat House, Sutton Park and The Belfry

Three venues on one lovely day! – Four if you count starting and finishing at the Belfry!

We met Matt and Sinead when they were attending a work’s Party and we were the resident photographers at the Hilton Hotel Christmas and New Year party events at the NEC last December. A quick chat about what we did, followed by a more in-depth meeting to show our wedding photography work at the Belfry and they booked us straight away.

We started around 9 am by photographing Sinead and her Bridesmaids getting ready in their room at the Belfry. We spent an hour or so capturing the fun and excitement of getting ready and ensuring that we captured the details of Sinead’s gorgeous wedding dress, her jewellery, all of their shoes, and having their hair and make-up done.

From there we moved on to Abbey church in Erdington to photograph a few fun shots of the groom with his ushers and best man before Sinead arrived for the wedding service.

Abbey church is very ornate and quite grand inside and so we made sure that we captured some of the interior architecture in our shots during the service with me positioned at the front with my 50mm prime lens (great in low light!) and Gary right at the very back with his telephoto zooms.

After a lovely service, Matt and Sinead were keen to have a few formal posed group photographs of family and friends in the Abbey church grounds before moving on to the Boat House restaurant in the middle of Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield. The weather was kind, and was very sunny at times, if a little windy. It was great to have a little time with the newly-weds and their close friends to do a few more relaxed and fun shots in-front of the lake and in the woodland area.

Later on in the evening we travelled back to the Belfry for the evening celebrations with many more guests and we stayed until 11:30pm in order to photograph the cake cutting, dancing …… and, of course, let the guests have a laugh or two in our very popular wedding photo booth!

 

As you can tell from this blog post it was a very long day and we took hundreds of photographs. Downloading them onto our computers and back-up storage systems took several hours …… and that was before¬†I¬†started editing them! I’m incredibly busy with wedding photography every week at the moment and It’s going to take a while to go through all of Sinead and Matt’s wedding photographs in order to create a really nice set of images that record the day properly. When they are done we will post them on their password-protected gallery on our main website. Matt and Sinead will then be able to have a good look though and choose the images they’d like for their bespoke wedding album. Check back here a little later for the link if you’d also like to have a closer look – You’ll have to get the password from Matt or Sinead though!

Meanwhile, we must be doing something right because we’re nearly fully booked throughout the 2011 summer season and we are taking plenty of advance bookings for 2012 and 2013 already! If you are getting married in Warwickshire or the Midlands, or if you know of someone who is, and you need a photography service that’s second to none, I’d like to think that’s what we offer! Give me a call on 07739096632 to see if we’re free. I’d love to hear from you.
