What a beautiful day we had when Jenny and Liam chose us as their wedding photographer for their special day in Leicestershire. They booked us for their wedding at the Church in Swithland and then onto the Griffin Inn literally just down the road from the Church. What a stunning venue. It was our first visit and we were blown away by the gardens and even more so by the service that everybody received.
I started the day with Jenny at her parents’ home where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids (one of which was a bridesmaid at a wedding we photographed not that long ago!) Jenny had already had her hair done at The Retreat in Nuneaton by Aimee Fowler and Paula Tennant was in the process of doing make up. It was a lovely morning with lots of laughter and a bit of emotion too when Jenny’s Dad saw her in her Brides of Solihull dress for the first time. The flowers had been delivered from Fleurs en Fleur and were gorgeous. The time came to leave for the Church and Driven In Style were waiting with a fab car to transport the bride and her Dad to Church.
Kev had been at the couple’s home capturing shots of Liam getting ready before he made his way to the venue for some last minute checks. He didn’t have to worry though as Sham from the Griffin Inn had everything in hand.
After the Church service it was back to the Griffin where drinks were waiting for the guests and the BBQ was on the go for canapes. It was a glorious day so everyone was enjoying being outside and we were able to take advantage of the beautiful landscaped areas for photos.
The cake from Bay Tree Cakes was cut just before the first dance (it looked extremely tasty) and then it was Bang Discos who got the entertainment underway. We stayed behind for a little longer as the sky was promising something special and it didn’t disappoint with a beautiful sunset.
A huge thank you to the whole team at The Griffin Inn in Swithland. It was an absolute pleasure to be spending the day with such a lovely couple and their family and the bonus was an incredible venue. We really do hope we see you again soon. 🙂 Enjoy the photos and if you want to see more then contact the newly weds for the password to their gallery along with a discount code for prints.
