To all of you getting married this year I hope you have a Wonderful Wedding Day. I cover a wide variety of venues around the country. More local venues to me are Manor Hill House in Upton Warren, Grafton Manor in Bromsgrove, Avoncroft Museum in Bromsgrove, Red House Barns in Stoke Prior, Brockencote Hall in Chaddesley Corbett, a variety of local churches including Harvington Church. Other wedding venues I regularly photograph weddings at include Stone Manor and The Granary, Arley Arboretum, Ribbesford church, all 4 churches in Droitwich and Stoke Prior.
Sherbourne Park in Warwick, Warwick Castle, Rowton Castle, Birtsmorton Court, the Crown and Sandys in Ombersley, Belbroughton Chruch, Dodford Church, to name a few.
All venues offer slightly different services and benefits, all are beautiful though, for example, Red House Barns in Stoke Prior is a fabulous venue and can accommodate a large wedding of up to a couple of hundred people, but doesn't offer overnight accommodation. Whilst Manor Hill House can't have weddings of that size, but does offer 5 bedrooms available for hire. Both venues offer exclusivity though.
If you are getting married in 2017 and would like to have a chat to me about your wedding photography, wherever you may be getting married, please call and check my availability, I have 18 weddings booked in for 2017 so far and am having to turn people away for certain popular dates, so please book your photographer as early as possible.
Remember when you book your photographer to have your list of questions ready - there are things you should be asking when you book - for example - all wedding photographers should have public liability insurance - and if you ask them, they should be able to show you their certificate. All professional photographers will have more than one camera - so ask your photographer how many cameras they have ? - What happens if one camera breaks ? what happens if a lens breaks ? What happens if the photographer is ill - will somebody else come along to photograph your big day ? will you just lose your money or will they send a qualified replacement ? What is included in the price - Hi res photos on a USB - if so how many ? How much extra are albums? What happens if you lose your USB is it possible to get a copy - if so how much do they cost ?
The list of questions goes on and on and I will cover more questions that you should be asking your photographer in my next wedding photography blog post. In the meantime, if you woudl ike to chat to me about your wedding photography call me on 07885472010.
