Sophie & Matt’s Knowle Church & Mallory Court Wedding

Sophie & Matt’s Knowle Church & Mallory Court Wedding

Sophie & Matt were married at Knowle Church in Knowle, Warwickshire, before celebrating at the beautiful Mallory Court wedding venue in Leamington.

Sophie & Matt had popped over to see us a few weeks back to go through their wedding details so it was lovely to catch up with Sophie & meet her Mom & Dad & bridesmaids at their family home for the preparations.

Within moments of walking in we were made to feel so incredibly welcome & as the atmosphere buzzed with excitement, & a little lady who could dab extremely well (I still cant seem to master that- think it must be an age thing lol) I got to play with all their lovely shoes, jewellery & of course Sophie stunning (& beautifully sparkly) wedding dress.

Stuart had been booked to film their wedding & I would be photographing, so again I got to spend the whole day with my husband, doing the job I love!

We left the girls & headed to the very picturesque Knowle Parish Church just down the road to meet with Matt & the boy. As well as some more traditional photos the boys were happy for a bit of fun & with time to spare we were able to get some more informal lovely reportage images of friends and family.

Sophies’s bridesmaids & mom arrived in style, first, in a beautiful Vintage Rolls Royce Landaulette. Followed by Sophie & her dad as the Rolls made round trip.

Following the beautiful service we captured a number of group shots requested by Sophie & Matt before a fabulous confetti send off & glasses of bubbly .

We moved on from Knowle Parish Church to Mallory Court for the remainder of the wedding. Mallory is a magnificent manor house hotel in Leamington Spa, set in 10 acres of grounds, is the epitome of a quintessential English country house hotel. Ive been lucky enough to photograph a number of Mallory Court Wedding, the last only being a few weeks ago.  It never fails to amaze me how quickly Mallory Court changes through out the year & how the photo opportunities change too.

Before the wedding breakfast we completed some fun friends images and some more arty wedding photographs with Sophie and Matt with the plan to complete the remainder after the meal when it would have also cooled down a little. Again we had several locations planned and ideas so we were able to quickly run through a number of photographs with them both inside and out before their evening guests arrived. With guests being entertained by the beautiful music provided by the lovely ladies from Sorelli Ensemble I utilised the remained of the time before the meal to capture some more candid images.

While Sophie & Matt enjoyed their wedding breakfast Stuart & I had a bit of a breather.  We had been kindly provided with the most delicious – humungous (understatement) plate of fish & chips ! Now for anyone who knows me – I like my food- but even I struggled to finish this mouthwatering plate of yumminess … but I did 😀

The speeches were everything they should be, fun, incredibly emotional & lovely & once finished guests enjoyed the beautiful summer evening in the grounds whilst the room was turned around for the evenings entertainment.

We stayed to capture the cake cut & first dance plus a couple of arty night time image.

Below are some of my favourite images from the day & will hopefully give the new Mr & Mrs Vincent a chance to see a small handful of their finally images (I’m feel very sorry for them… stuck on a beautiful honeymoon island with limited wifi 😀 .. not that I’m a touch jealous :-D)

Congratulations to you both, Stuart & I will look forward to seeing you with your photos & video when you return x

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.
