We met Kathryn and Ian at a wedding fayre at Brownsover Hall Hotel in Rugby Warwickshire 12 months ago on a very snowy day. Since then their beautiful daughter Darcy-Rose has arrived and she was totally involved her Mum and Dad’s winter wedding.
As photographers there is just one wish for weather and that is for it not to rain all day and our wish was granted, no rain until the evening! In fact when we arrived in Burbage Leicestershire to take some early shots of the Church we had beautiful blue skies. Kev and I split once these photos were taken. He went off to Ian and captured some shots of him getting ready with the “men of the day”. Darcy was also with Ian. The guys looked great in their suits from Philip James Menswear in Hinckley. I spent the morning with Kathryn and all the ladies. She had visited The Dolls House in Burbage to have her hair done earlier in the morning and then her friend Kirsty came along to do her make up for her. All the ladies looked gorgeous. The bridesmaids’ dresses were stunning and really different but really fitted with the whole look Kathryn and Ian were after. Kat’s dress was from Quello Bride in Kenilworth and it really was a wow dress. She looked fabulous.
There was a lot of work put in by Kathryn and Ian themselves along with friends and family. Kathryn’s Mum did a beautiful job of the flowers. She really should take it up as a job not just a hobby! A family friend, Kay, had made the cake which looked delicious. Kathryn made headbands for the flowergirls and did nearly everything for the tables at the reception.
An Alvis car from Lucie John in Syston took Kathryn to Church with her Dad and then from there the newlyweds used the car to make their way to Brownsover Hall Hotel in Rugby for their wedding celebrations. There they were met by Hayley and the team with warm welcome drinks, as being December it did turn cold as the day progressed. To complement Kathryn’s hard work with the table decorations, Mill House Events dressed the room for the wedding breakfast and as always it looked gorgeous.
We took a few shots outside before the cold got the better of our couple and we used the internal features of the hotel as well some shots taken from outside looking in through windows and doors. We also used some leftover confetti and added some lighting to capture an image which made Kathryn cry when she saw it. She said it made the confetti look like snow and that was what she had wanted on her wedding day. So pleased we could make her dream come nearly true! Oh and I cannot forget one special appearance. Sky Blue Sam turned up as a surprise for Ian who is a big Coventry City fan.
This really was a beautiful family day and we enjoyed spending it with Kathryn, Ian and Darcy-Rose and their guests. Thanks to Brownsover Hall Hotel staff who looked after everyone really well as always.
Enjoy the photos. To see more ask Kathryn and Ian for the password for their gallery.
