We have been photographing weddings at Dunchurch Park Hotel as one of their recommended photographers for many years now and it is always a pleasure. Anne and Adriano chose the venue for their recent wedding and chose us to capture their day for them. We also had Ben from BRS Wedding Videography join us for the day which is always great. We work so well together as a team at a wedding.
When we spoke to Anne and Adriano in advance of their day to talk about their day it became clear that they wanted to include their adorable little girl in the majority of their photography experience. You can see from some of the photos below that she loved the camera. However when I arrived in the bridal changing room she was preparing for the day ahead…fast asleep in the arms of one of Anne’s friends. 🙂
Anne had Kay O’Mear doing her hair, someone who knew her well so was able to give Anne a wonderful style whilst making sure she felt comfortable. Anne’s and her daughter’s dress came from Monsoon. During the morning the lovely Anne-Marie (florist) arrived with the bouquets and explained to Anne the importance of holding her bouquet in the right way. She also did the floral arrangements around the venue which looked lovely.
Kev met with Adriano and captured some photos of him getting into his Moss Bros suit.
The Great Hall which was where the ceremony was to be held had been decorated by Gem Celebrations and they also decorated the Marquee where they were to enjoy their wedding breakfast later. The ceremony was conducted by the ladies from the Registry Office in Rugby and once married there was time for confetti, drinks and then a large group shot on the steps captured by our drone.
After a few family and couple photos we headed across to the marquee where everyone sat down to eat. Afterwards the temperature had dropped a little so we went down to the lake to capture a few more photos and again took the drone with us to get a different perspective.
The evening got under way with the cutting of the cake made by friend Geema and then first dance with music from Crazy Horses.
A great day with lovely people. Huge thanks to the team at Dunchurch Park Hotel especially Sally who helped Anne and Adriano with the planning of their perfect day.
