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.
