There are some people that make an impression on you the first time you meet them and that is exactly what happened when we met Robyn and Chris at a wedding fayre at the Draycote Hotel in Rugby. Such a lovely couple so it was fantastic when they chose us as their photographer for their special celebration. It was to be a bit of an international affair as Robyn is from the USA so she had a good number of family members who travelled over to be part of their big day. Both of them were getting ready at the hotel so we met them there and captured some of the preparations. Melissa from Rugby Flower Delivery came in with Robyn’s gorgeous flowers during this time and she was also responsible for the flowers in the Phoenix Suite.
Ruth from Rugby Registry Office conducted a beautiful ceremony. There were a few tears! Obviously they were happy ones. We grabbed a couple of golf buggies after the ceremony and made our way out onto the golf course for a few photos. We were lucky as the weather was closing in and we got back just as the rain started. It wasn’t to last all day though so we were able to get them out for more photos later. As a result of the rain we found a few nooks and crannies in the hotel for some indoor couple photos.
The Phoenix Suite had been turned around by Stephan, Anna and the team while we were taking the photos and the guests were welcomed in for the wedding breakfast. Rainbow Linen were responsible for the chair covers, sashes and stationary and Gary from JLW Sound and Lighting added some ambience with some great uplighting.
The evening commenced with the first dance. JLW Sound and Lighting kept the dance floor busy for the evening.
There was an added opportunity for photographs with a stunning sunset so we literally whisked the couple off to take advantage. I am sure you will agree it was worth it.
Later in the evening there was a surprise fireworks display to music from Halo FX. All I can say is wow! The display was amazing and even I had a little tear as I was photographing! 🙂
Huge thank you to the family and friends of Robyn and Chris for making us feel so welcome and as always thanks to Stephan, Anna and the team for another awesome day. Hope you enjoy a selection of the many photos we took on the day.
