We met Caroline and Alan at a wedding event at the lovely Warwickshire venue Dunchurch Park. They had lots of questions, which we love, they actually took a real interest in the service that we had on offer. They chose a great venue for the time of year as well. Dunchurch Park had the changing colours of Autumn and we also had some sunshine on the day which was a bonus for the guests.
The hotel has a dedicated bridal changing area which was where I met up with Caroline and her bridal party. She was having hair and make up done by Hair by Dani. Her gorgeous dress was from the local bridal outlet in Rugby, Mabel and Maud. The bridesmaids had their dresses from another local shop Florence Bridal. During the morning our friend Anne-Marie (florists) arrived with the beautiful flowers and we also bumped into Rainbow Wedding Shop who were doing the decor.
Kev was with Alan at home where he was getting ready with his groomsmen. They had suits from Peter Posh.
Once ready the fabulous Amin, who was the MC for the day, helped Caroline down the stairs. Kev captured some lovely shots of this.
We had a list of great suppliers all day including the ladies from Warwickshire Registration Services. Julia was conducting the ceremony and I am pretty sure everyone was talking about her during the drinks reception. She made everyone feel so at ease during the legal proceedings. Traditional confetti in the colours of the wedding was thrown as the newly weds made their way outside and then we had time for photos outside before the wedding breakfast was served.
During the turnaround we had an opportunity to capture a few more couple portraits before the evening commenced in the Great Hall. Karen from Cakes Fabulous Cakes had arrived to set up a gorgeous display of cake which I am pretty sure tasted as good as it looked. The DJ was Paul from Storm Entertainments.
We all had a lovely day. Massive thanks to the team including Sally who was the couple’s wedding planner throughout the time leading up to and including on the day. Also to Amin who was great as always.
