What a lovely day we had photographing the wedding of Denise and Danny at Draycote Hotel in Warwickshire. We actually met the new Mr and Mrs Elson on Valentine’s Night last year when they were dining at the hotel and have spent a bit of time together since so we knew each other quite well by the time we came to the big day. I cannot believe that with all the bad weather we have been having that, yet again, we had a good day with blue skies and sunshine.
I spent the morning with Denise and her bridesmaids at the hotel where they were getting ready. Candice Fuller was on hand with make up. We have worked together on a fair few weddings now and she always does a fab job of making every bride radiant on their day and Denise was no exception. She really did look beautiful. Kev was with Danny and the boys also at the hotel. They had used Moss Bros to their suits. He grabbed a few shots of them before Danny went to meet the arriving guests. The Phoenix Suite at Draycote looked gorgeous with chair covers and double sashes by Rainbow Linen and uplighting by JLW Sound and Lighting who also provided the entertainment later on. The flowers had been supplied by Melissa from Rugby Flower Delivery. Denise had a special photograph within her bouquet which was such a nice touch.
After the ceremony we grabbed a couple of golf buggies and made our way down to the lake with views across Draycote Water. We took a few photos using the beautiful backdrop and then headed back where Mark from the hotel welcomed the newly weds onto the balcony for their guests to greet them. A few formal photos before we made our way back into the Phoenix Suite for the wedding breakfast and the cutting of the cake. The cake was stunning.

We were with them for the whole day and night as they had booked our Photo Booth which went down a storm. Fireworks to music by Halo FX was the climax, a fab display. It really was a superb day and I am sure the couple would want me to thank Mark, Natalie and the team from the hotel who did a fab job of making it such a memorable occasion. Here are just a few of the photos from their day. We hope you enjoy them. Contact Denise and Danny if you want to see the rest of them and they can give you the password for their gallery.
