The beautiful Mallory Court near Leamington Spa in Warwickshire was the venue for Karen & Steve’s wedding. I got to the venue early to take some shots around the place before Steve, his best man and his two other groomsmen arrived for some photos before the other guests arrived. It was a lovely sunny morning with blue skies but luckily not as hot as it had been during the previous week.
There were quite a selection of cars at their wedding. Steve arrived in an Aston Martin, his mother was driven there in a Bentley and as the groom and the guests took the places inside ready for the ceremony, I waited outside for the arrival of the bride, Karen, in a stunning Rolls-Royce!
After the ceremony, we all went through to the rose garden for confetti and then a drinks reception in the gardens at the rear of the hotel in the early afternoon sun. Group shots followed before guests made their way over to the Knights Suite for the wedding breakfast, whilst I had a few minutes for photos with the bride and groom.
The food was incredible and I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to take a few quick photos of the food in the kitchen before it came out to the wedding party. I was also given a plate of each course to photograph (and then eat afterwards!).
The speeches went down well, with time after for guests to enjoy some garden games and a few drinks before the evening guests arrived. This also gave me the chance to capture a few more photos of the Karen & Steve. Once the evening guests had all arrived, the cutting of the cake was followed by the first dance before others joined them on the dance floor. The bride and groom were clearly enjoying a boogie!
We finished the photos for the day making the most of the beautiful sunset before I left Karen & Steve to enjoy the rest of their night with their family and guests.
