Dewsall Court Wedding Photographer

This was my first time as a Dewsall Court Wedding Photographer and it was for the fantastic wedding of Becky & Steven. Becky and Steven live in Singapore and arranged their wedding (or most of it) from there, although they did pay a visit earlier this year. During that visit we had their engagement shoot which was also at Dewsall Court. It was great to get to know them both as most communication had been done through email or Skype.

Their wedding was a coming together of two families from different sides of the Atlantic. Becky's from the UK and Steven's from the USA, having said this, Steven's family do originate from France. Guests travelled from all over to help these guys celebrate and were rewarded with some beautiful if uncommon British sunshine.

Dewsall Court

Dewsall Court is a beautiful wedding venue in rural Herefordshire nestled in the stunning countryside. The wedding ceremony took place on the lawns with those stunning countryside views as a backdrop. Becky and Steven both spent the morning at Dewsall Court getting ready, relaxing and enjoying the company of their friends and family too. Steven and his groomsmen had a game of snooker although I am not sure that they knew the rules.

Photos and Party time.

When the sun had started to set we went out for a little portrait session in the gardens. Becky and Steven took this time to enjoy each others company and a bit of quiet time to think about how great their day had been. On to the evening and the dance floor was a huge party for everyone, some really cool dance moves there guys!

This was my first visit as a Curradine Barns wedding photographer and I have to say I was impressed. A great little venue tucked away in the Worcestershire countryside and surrounded by beautiful views across open fields.

The Wedding.

Claire and Paul's wedding was on a beautiful sunny day in July. Claire spent the morning at Curradine Barns with her bridesmaids (and sisters) having fun getting ready. Lot's of laughter from the girls with a few glasses of bubbly too. The wedding ceremony was an extremely happy one, again with plenty of laughter and love. Claire's Dad did hesitate for a second when asked to give his daughters hand in marriage, much to the amusement of the guests.

With the weather being so good during the afternoon the guests were able to sit outside and chat. We did get a slight bit of rain later in the afternoon but this is the UK after all. After a few photos later in the day with family and friends, then some portrait shots it was onto the speeches where there were a few tears with the stories being told.

Claire and Paul were a lot of fun to work with, with a very relaxed attitude and just enjoying the moment.

Lemore Manor Wedding Photography, I’ve got to say it, 2017 has been a superb year for me at Lemore Manor. Awesome weddings, awesome venue but most of all, couples full of energy, love and fun! Every wedding has been so different and with 2017 nearing the end, I can’t wait to blog the amazing weddings that are just bursting to be seen.

This next wedding has everything described above, energy, love and fun! Guests enjoying the day as much as the couple, dancing to probably the best band I have seen at a wedding and everyone mixing in together.

Lemore manor weddings are always special and the wedding of Sam and Martin was no different. Their wedding was very family orientated, they have two boys and wanted them involved in the proceedings. Whilst the youngest was probably a bit too young to do anything but be cute, which he did so well, the oldest was the ring bearer for them, not only that, he made a speech full of emotion which was very well executed I have to say. I think Sam was struggling to hide her feelings at this point.

Sam got ready in the Hen house which is a purpose built room for the girls in the morning. Due to the rain she then moved over to the Bridal suite for the finishing touches. The rain didn't stop our first portrait session, Sam and Martin rocked it and by the second session it had dried up with the sun breaking through.

There were tears of course, the good kind though, Dad was quite overcome when he saw Sam in her dress. Then a groom slaughtered by his best mans speech which was pretty epic and produced tears of laughter along with a few gasps too.
