Fawsley Hall | Annabelle & Oliver

Annabelle & Oliver's Wedding at Fawsley Hall

The Wedding Preparations

Annabelle opted to get ready at home with family and friends.  She told me she wanted a relaxed start to the morning of her wedding.  She got it.  It was filled with laughter, love and a few bubbles.  Makeup artist Brooke Savannah Stephens was on hand helping Annabelle and her bridal party get ready. Meanwhile, Oliver was getting ready with a few of his Groomsmen at Fawsley Hall; their chosen wedding venue.  The boys had a busy morning.  They were on hand helping to direct guests to the church and provide transport to those that needed it.

The Ceremony: St Mary The Virgin Church Fawsley

The wedding ceremony was held at the very intimate St Mary The Virgin Church.  This small, quaint and isolated Church lies in the grounds of Fawsley Hall.  It is only accessible by walking across what is essentially a field in the grounds of Fawsley Hall.  Watching the guests make their way was brilliant.  Furthermore, they all braved the cold and mud with smiles on their faces to celebrate in the marriage of Annabelle and Oliver.

The Reception : Fawsley Hall

Fawlsey Hall, itself is an amazing wedding venue to shoot at.  It looked particularly dramatic on their wedding day with the heavy overcast skies.  Set in it’s beautiful grounds it really is a wedding photographer’s dream. Following the ceremony, Annabelle and Oliver’s guests were treated to a drinks reception in The Tudor Hall.  This was such a great space.  Full of history, with wonderful light and amazing architecture.  To keep their guests entertained Annabelle and Oliver had George the Wedding Artist drawing up Wedding Caricatures. This was all done with the dulcet tones of Sax player Steve Ogorman playing in the background mixed in with a lot of laughter. During the wedding breakfast, there was an especially emotional speech from Annabelle’s dad and brilliantly funny speech from Oliver’s best man.

The Wedding Photographs

Whilst, not originally our clients we were beyond happy to step in and help.  With their original wedding photographer, a good friend of ours who was pregnant was unable to photograph their day, so we jumped at the chance when asked.  Annabelle & Oliver – you, your family and friends were an absolute pleasure to document.

Let's Talk

If you’re looking for a documentary wedding photographer for your wedding day at Fawsley Hall, then we’d love to hear from you.

The Royal Botanical Gardens | Milena & Richard

Milena & Richard's Wedding at Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh

Of all the places in the world that I love to visit, Scotland is up there. I mean right up top. I’ll never forget the first time I got to Edinburgh and being welcomed by such a well maintained and historical city that just prides itself on its heritage. Not to mention the drive through the Trossachs and into the Highlands and Glencoe. To call it a photographer’s dream would be an understatement. But that’s enough about my love for Scotland, now back to the important stuff; photographing the wonderful wedding of Richard and Milena at The Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh.

Pem & Selcuk’s Hotel Wedding in London

Arriving for what Pem thought was a leaving party for a work colleague, she entered the London Sky Bar. As the lift doors part, she found the usual bustling place totally empty. To her surprise, the regular groups of people were replaced by a trail of rose petals which led to a table with champagne. Continue Reading

Faye & Adam’s Wedding at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester

Adam and Faye’s first date didn’t get off to the smoothest of starts. She had no car at the time so they’d agreed he would pick her up from her work car park and go from there.  Looking out for the black golf she nervously opened the door and got in. Then a moment of shock… She realised the driver wasn’t Adam.  She’d gotten into another black golf by mistake. Luckily on her wedding day at the amazing Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, she was in the right place with the right man and the wedding day all went to plan.

Blake Hall | Katie & Graham

Katie and Graham's Wedding at Blake Hall

Thinking she was going on a surprise trip to Italy Katie found herself on a plane, heading out to San Francisco.  Little did she know she’d be travelling for 6 months with the love of her life.  It turned out to be a trip of a lifetime rather than the surprise Italy trip she was expecting.  It had all been organised by Graham.  From the Rocky Mountains to Napa Valley. They went travelling around the US soaking in the sights.  When she returned to one of her favourite restaurants overlooking the vineyards in the Napa Valley she hadn’t expected the proposal.  True to form; however, Graham surprised her yet again! Getting down on one knee at the end of the evening and asking Katie to marry him.  Flash forward to August this year, and that proposal led to their wedding day at Blake Hall, one of our favourite wedding venues in Essex.

A wedding at a photography studio in the heart of East London’s Regents Canal! YES PLEASE.
