Laura & Nathan’s Warwickshire wedding- Hatton Church & Village Hall

Laura & Nathan’s Warwickshire wedding- Hatton Church & Village Hall

“Vicky was fantastic on the day and photographed every single detail and captured our day perfectly, she put me and my husband at ease, even when I was near tears (I got stung by a bee during our photos!)…We’d highly recommend Vicky and her work to anyone.”

Laura & Nathan’s Warwickshire wedding was to take place at the picturesque Holy Trinity Church in Hatton  & Hatton Village Hall.  Both of which are literally on our doorstep.

Stuart & I have known Laura’s family for many years & had the privilege of photographing & filming Laura’s sisters wedding a few years ago. We were very excited & honoured to be asked to photograph & film Laura & Nathan’s up coming wedding.

Laura, like her sister Alissa, are both incredibly creative so we knew that Hatton village Hall would be beautifully decorated through-out & with the addition of alcoholic/cocktail flavoured ice-cream we couldn’t go far wrong :-)!

Laura spent the morning calmly getting ready at her family home, with the rest of her bridal party & family. I love being able to capture the preparation & all of the beautiful details at the beginning of a wedding, I’m definitely like a magpie – attracted to all the pretty sparkly things :-). We left Laura & her girls to finish getting ready & headed off to meet Nathan & his Groom’s men at Holt Trinity Church. I truly feel it’s important to photograph both the bridal prep & the groom & grooms men as this is the only part of the wedding that the bride & groom each miss out on during their special day, as they are not together at this point. As anyone who has got married will tell you, time seems to speed up 3 fold & the day passes in what seems to be a blink of an eye. I want to make the very most of capturing all those important memory for you so that you will be able to enjoy looking back on in months & years to come.

After a fabulous service, which included a beautiful acoustic guitar solo, played & sang by Laura’s Brother we made our way outside to photograph the family & group shots, requested by Laura & Nathan.  We bid fair well to the guests, who all made their way to the Village hall (to tuck into the extremely delicious ice cream!) while we whisked Laura & Nathan off to an idillic, little known hidden garden in Warwick. We were able to spend a little time wandering around the grounds, taking some beautiful pictures of the couple. A number of the images I  captured of Laura & Nathan are some of my favourites to date :-).  They were such an relaxed couple to work with & even after Laura had been attacked & stung viciously by the largest bee I have ever seen (I kid you not!) she still managed to smile & carried on.

A wonderful meal & incredibly funny speeches followed (at one point I thought Laura may die of embarrassment during her dad’s speech :-D) . The evening entertainment took us through the remainder of the night, with the band making sure there wasn’t a still foot in the house, with the dance floor crowded from the first moment they struck a chord .

As the evening drew to an end of a most fantastic day (apart from the bee) Mr & Mrs Walsh were given a tremendous sparkly – sparkler send off.

Congratulations to Laura & Nathan, both Stuart & I wish you both the best for your married life together.

Alisa & Sam’s Wedding – Hatton Village Hall

What a lovely wedding 🙂 … Alisa’s family have know Stuart for years but it was still such an honour to be asked to photography and film Alisa & Sam’s wedding.

We met up with Alisa, Sam, mum & Dad a few weeks before to catch up (with a few drinks 🙂 ) & to chat through their wedding.  Sam & Alisa are very easy going and were more than happy to leave the day in our hands.

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

Here are a few of their pictures from their wonderful day.

Tara and David | Wedding Photography at Coventry Register Office and Hatton Village Hall

I met Tara and David to discuss their wedding photography much earlier in the year and was delighted when they came back to me to say that they had chosen me to do their wedding photography for them. They had planned their special day to be in two locations, Coventry Register Office and celebrations afterwards at the Hatton Village hall in Warwickshire. When the big day arrived everyone had a great time, despite one or two mishaps caused by an administrative error by their coach company (coach didn’t turn up to transport 80 ish guests over to Hatton!)

Still, it didn’t spoil the day and aided by some beautiful autumn colours under the trees at Coventry register office and at Hatton Locks, I’m really pleased with the way the photos turned out ……

An important family member who wanted to be involved but unfortunately couldn’t attend the wedding itself!

First glimpse of Tara on her special day …..

Coventry Register Office ……

David and his grooms-men waiting patiently for Tara to arrive …..

One of the very important little bridesmaids (and is that a really magic wand I see?)… Couldn’t resist adding a bit of sparkle … Don’t you just love CS5!

It can be a real challenge to get the shots in the service at Coventry register office. It’s very dark and opportunities are restricted by the rules set by the registrars

Some ‘fun’ time for the kids of all ages with the autumn leaves while the best man chased the coach company to find out where they were!

Time for some newly-wed photos of Tara and David before setting off for Hatton

Whenever we attend a wedding we have always planned the photography thoroughly. Sometimes we need to be flexible when plans get changed at the last minute. Whilst the absent coach company was being sorted out we left earlier with Tara and David to go to Hatton locks to take advantage of the lovely sunshine and the autumn colours for some more ‘couple shots’ ….

We weren’t the only ones with cameras at the wedding ……

Evening entertainment went down really well ….

And we injected a little unexpected extra fun for ourselves ….. Just a minute … Who is the groom getting intimate with on his wedding night?

After around 12 hours of photography by both of us this was one of our parting shots …..

This was a wedding that we both attended for the whole day from bridal preparations at Tara’s home in the morning to the first dance and way beyond. The photos shown in this blog post are only a small sample of the ones that I’ve now prepared and provided for Tara and David to look at ready for their album choice after Christmas.

I’m booking up weddings for 2011 and 2012. Many of the more popular dates, especially in August 2011, are already taken, but if you need a Coventry and/or Warwickshire based photographer for your special day please do give me a call on 07739096632. I’ll be glad to discuss your wishes with you.
