For those of you setting your Wedding dates for 2023 Please book in sooner rather than later.
I have a few dates left for this year, but next year is boing up very quickly, so please get in touch with your wedding date as soon as possible.
Wedding Photography at Crown and Sandys Ombersley
The above images were from Weddings I photographed at the Crown and Sandys in Ombersley last Summer.
This selection of wedding photographs are from a Grafton Manor Wedding, Red House Barns wedding photography and a garden marquee wedding down in Warwickshire.
The Old Rectory - at Ipsley is a fabulous venue, very pretty and exclusive hire is available.
Ettington Park Hotel Wedding Photography and the Bride on the left got married at Tanworth In Arden church.
Arley Arboretum Wedding Photography
Arley Arboretum is an amazing place for your wedding, plus of course there are so many photography opportunities and lovely places for your guests to wonder around and enjoy.
Arley Arboretum has room for a magnificent marque out on the front lawns to accommodate a huge number of guests
The Diglis Hotel in Worcester is another popular venue, next to the river it is easy to see why.
The Wroxeter Hotel in Shrewsbury,
is another popular location as they have many options for weddings - outside, yurt and the hotel, there is even a farm option not far up the road from them at a sister venue. I will do a whole post on the Wroxeter shortly as I photograph quite a lot of weddings there.
Shustoke Barns - below is a fabulous large barn with beautiful outdoor space.
Brockencote Hall in Chaddesley Corbett - is also just 1 mile form my home and is another lovely wedding venue, I often photograph smaller more intimate weddings here, although I'm sure they cater for larger wedding parties too.
Below was a wedding that I photographed last year at Catshill church and the reception was at The Nailers Arms pub in Bourneheath - once again just a mile or so form my home - so many local venues around here it's great.
Below we have Wedding Photography at The Chateau Impney in Droitwich - another local venue
sadly now closed for weddings.
Wherever you are getting married, once you have set your date you should think about booking your photographer, there are a lot of wedding photographers to choose from - but there are a lot of things you should be asking your wedding photographer - I have listed some questions for you below......
Questions to ask your photographer should include;
1. How many weddings have you previously photographed ? and How long have you been a wedding photographer ?
The reason is - if you are one of their first - or their first wedding then they will not understand how a wedding day flows, and they will not know what happens when and how important is it to be in the right place at the right place for when certain things are going to happen.
2. Do they have insurance - public liability insurance ?
A venue does not have to let e photographer work at their venue if they do not have public liability insurance - and it's amazing how many don't bother.....
3.How many cameras and lenses do they carry?
If a camera or lens breaks as the bride is walking back down the aisle or as they are about to kiss for the first time as man and wife - what then - i have spare everything in my bag around my shoulder - it's all turned on and ready to go - so when I had a lens break as a bride was walking down the aisle - I picked up my other camera and carried in like nothing had happened - she had no idea....
4. Can you see a portfolio of their work ?
If not why not? How many weddings have they really done?
5. What does the price actually include ?
Is it prints, a memory stick - a mixture? are images limited or do you get everything?
These are just a few questions that you should be asking, but even if these are the only ones you ask - make sure you do - and make sure that you are completely happy with your photographer before you book them - as they will be spending your wedding day with you.
One last montage - Wedding Photography at Grafton Manor in Bromsgrove.
If you would like to have a chat about your day or see some more of my work - or see a whole wedding in photos from start to finish - or several hundred :-) then please give me a call and remember that whatever questions you have that none of them are stupid or silly - I shoot weddings most weeks and I see and experience a lot - you may have been to friends weddings, but getting married yourself is very different so please don't worry about asking me any questions at all.
