Hampton Manor is a beautiful venue in Solihull with Michelin Star status. It is beautiful both inside and out and we are spoilt for choice when we photograph there. We had the pleasure of being the wedding photographers for Lorraine and Steve recently and they chose the venue along with the lovely Church which is within the grounds.
I was met at the couple’s home by Lorraine and her bridesmaids. Candice Fuller was doing her usual make-up magic alongside Natalie Davies who was doing the hair. It was a lovely morning with the ladies. Lorraine’s Mum had the special task of helping her into her gown from Liney’s Brides (Hinckley). Sarah from Stemsations was responsible for the absolutely stunning floral arrangements including bouquets, Church flowers and the flowers back at Hampton Manor.
Steve was staying at Toft B&B which was a lovely backdrop close to Draycote Water. He captured the guys getting ready before the cars from Grooms on Time arrived. Wow what cars!
Duncan Ballard the vicar was a pleasure to deal with at the Church. He was on hand to help Lorraine out of the car (Celebration Wedding Cars) before she made her way up the pretty path and into Church to meet Steve.
Once married they had a little drive round back to the hotel where Charlotte and the team were waiting to greet them with drinks. The staff at the hotel are amazing and can’t do enough for you. We had the opportunity to capture a few photos in the gardens before the wedding breakfast. Some lovely touches from Really Good Events Company added to the beauty of the room.
Once the speeches were complete we were able to spend a little more time taking a few more photos before the cake cutting (an amazing cake from Spin Spin Sugar) before the first dance with music from The Beat Factor.
A fab day with wonderful people. To see more photos contact the newly weds for their password to their gallery along with a discount code for professional prints.
