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!

Camilla & Paddy’s Wedding – St Laurence Church & Stoneleigh Abbey

If it isn’t hard enough planning a wedding … Camilla & Paddy planned their UK wedding whilst living in New Zealand. Camilla’s mother helped with the plans & preparation as she lived much nearer to the venues … Switzerland !

Camilla had chosen to get married to Paddy in St Laurence Parish Church, Bidford-on-Avon followed by the reception at the beautiful Stoneleigh Abbey.  With a week to go the couple had flown in to the UK to finalise all the last minute details and to meet with me to go over their photography ideas (over a very lovely coffee and yummy slice of cake).

Camilla & Paddy were very keen to have some of their photographs taken in the great Library and the grand stair case within Stoneleigh Abbey & even though the weather was superb the indoor decor is stunning to be able to photograph.

Here are just a small selection of the images taken on the day.

Craig and Alice’s Wedding | Photography in Harbury, Warwickshire by Victoria Jane Photography

Some weddings can be described in only 3 words; Fun, Fun, FUN !!!

When Alice and Craig met me to discuss their photography I was in no doubt that this was going to be a fabulous day ….. and I wasn’t wrong! They were a lovely couple with a lively set of guests and bridesmaids and groomsmen who were also up for a laugh.

It was really interesting to see some different things on the day that had been carefully planned: the bride taking her pet sheep for a walk, our photo booth at night time in the stables, A road trip with a horse and carriage, Sumo wrestling suits for the guests, Giant Jenga on the lawn etc.

Anyway, enough of the chat, lets allow the photos to do the talking …….

As you can see, I was given a bit of freedom to think up some interesting photo opportunities. Craig and Alice were very willing to do something different and the photography became one of the entertainments of the day! We were there for around 15 hours from early morning to late at night. It was a fabulous day and I hope you enjoyed the images I created.

If you are planning a wedding day with a difference in Warwickshire and you fancy some creative and fun photographic memories please give me a call on 07739096632. I’d love to talk to you.

Becki & Gareth’s Pre Wedding Photo Shoot at Ettington Chase Hotel in Stratford

With a busy August ahead, July is chocked full of pre wedding meetings & a number of pre-wedding photoshoots.

This weekend was the turn of Becki & Gaz.

I first meet Becki & Gaz around a year ago so it was great to catch up properly, stroll around Ettington Chase hotel & discuss their photographic wish list.

As a wonderful keep-sake, Becki & Gaz were keen to have one of the images taken from this photo shoot as a centrepiece of a photo mount so that their friends & families can sign it on their wedding day  … I’ll look forward to seeing which image they choose 🙂





Becki & Gaz were a great couple to photograph & I’m very much looking to their wedding date later on in August this year !

Laura and Paddy’s Outdoor Wedding at Warwick House | Photographed by Victoria Jane Photography

I was really excited about being asked to do the photography at Laura and Paddy’s wedding. Firstly, they are a fun couple; easy going with a great sense of humour and open to ideas and suggestions about their photography on the day. Secondly, Warwick house in Southam is a relatively new wedding venue and it was the first time that I’d photographed a weddng there, and thirdly, Laura and Patrick had opted to have their wedding ceremony outside! …… We were hoping for good weather!

The day arrived, we were there early, and thanks to the wonderful staff at warwick house, everything was looking lovely. An added bonus was a sunny day, if a little windy at times. We had been asked to photograph the day until the start of the sit-down meal. Here’s a taster of their day …..

I really enjoyed the day and I think the wedding photos show that Laura and Patrick and their guests did too. For any couples getting married in the warwickshire area who want the option of an outside wedding I would definitely recommend adding Warwick house in Southam to your list of venues to explore….. and now, of course, I’d love to speak to any couples who are getting married at Warwick house and are looking for a fun, friendly, enthusiastic wedding photographer.
