So, I started off my Midlands wedding photography season with a three-parter for the lovely Nidhu and Christian. The first day was their civil ceremony at Cheylesmore Manor House in Coventry. This was followed by an intimate reception with a few friends and family at The Saxon Mill in Warwick. Day two was a pre-party to their main reception and celebration which was held the next day at Nailcote Hall in Berkswell.
The Saxon Mill Wedding
The first day was at the tail-end of all the storms we had earlier in the year – remember those before we were hit with this pandemic? Luckily the worst of the stormy weather was over and they even had sunshine on the day! I started the day with Nidhu and her bridesmaids getting ready at Warwickshire Hotel and Country Club, just outside Leamington Spa, before heading over to Cheylesmore Manor House in Coventry for the wedding ceremony. It was a lovely intimate ceremony with no more than 30 of Nidhu and Christian’s friends and relatives. After the ceremony, we stayed for a few family photos and photos of Nidhu and Christian together before leaving for The Saxon Mill. When we arrived in the late afternoon, the sun was starting to set which made for some great photos.
The following week was Nidhu and Christian’s pre-wedding party at the Mercia Venue in Coventry. They had food and drinks interspersed with dancing… and I loved the dance floor on this night! Everyone was up and dancing from the older to the younger guests. Even Nidhu and Christian, who admit to not really loving dancing, joined in. It was a great night!
Nailcote Hall Wedding Photography
The next day was time for some more Midlands wedding photography for their big reception at Nailcote Hall. I joined Nidhu and her bridesmaids again as they got ready and then went downstairs as guests started to arrive. The reception was in a big marquee out the back of Nailcote Hall and was decorated beautifully by Vogue Luxury Events. Nidhu and Christian were led into the marquee by drummers and then there was food, drink and plenty of dancing for the rest of the night. Although the daylight had completely gone, we found time for a few night time shots of the happy couple in-between the food and dancing – such a fun night!
