Returning to Wethele Manor in Warwickshire for Katy and Josh’s wedding was a joy! Wethele Manor is one of the most popular and beloved wedding venues in Warwickshire with a cozy outdoor ceremony space, marquee and barn area for your wedding breakfast and dancing- it ticks all the boxes! It’s also just a few minutes down the road from Leamington Spa which made it for convenient for Katy and her bridesmaids getting ready at her parent’s house there.
I must give a personal shout out to the girls who came from Hair and Makeup Atelier. Picking the right hair and MUA for your wedding day is just as important as anything else. These girls were aware of time, of emotions, of myself and the videographer getting the coverage we needed (I mean, what??) all while being friendly and caring and exceptionally talented. Highest recommendations to these gals! They really stand out from the rest.
After a beautiful ceremony at St Mary Magdalene’s Church in Lillington, Leamington, guests congratulated the newlyweds and sent them off in their hunter green vintage MG with a confetti tunnel. Later at Wethele Manor, the sun was pouring as fluidly as the champagne and I was very grateful to my second photographer Alex Bradbury at this point for capturing all the details and guests enjoying themselves so I could focus on the family photos!
Each table was named after places of importance to the bride and groom (take note of Clearwater Beach, Florida where I used to live! What??) and after dinner speeches were mastered and brought out barrels of laughter and hedgehog hats for the bride and groom in honor of their pet hedgehog Henrietta! She has an Instagram account. You’re welcome. And last but not at all least, sunset photos in the stunning grounds of Wethele Manor, a choreographed first dance and a sparkler tunnel to wrap up the day in a practically perfect way!
Thank you, Katy and Josh, for your enthusiasm, for your care, and for your trust in me as your wedding photographer. Your wedding day was absolutely gorgeous through and through, a truly wonderful celebration of your love for each other. I couldn’t have been happier to capture it for you!
