Nuthurst Grange Wedding Photography – The Matherine

Hello there,

A few quick sneak peeks today,  just under 2 weeks ago I shot an amazing wedding for a fantastic couple an the truly magnificent Nuthurst Grange Hotel in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire weddding venue - nuthurst grange

I was very excited when Catherine and Matt  – or collectively as their friends refer to them, the Matherin let me know they were getting married at Nuthurst Grange Country House Hotel, its a venue I have heard a lot about and one I have wanted to do wedding photography at for a good while.  A very good friend of mine (non mafia related) and great wedding photographer Sean O’Shaughnessy had told me lots about this venue and about Vanessa the wedding events manager and just how good they are at looking after the couple and the photographer.  It far exceeded what he had said, nothing at all seemed too much.

As this is just a sneak peek, I get to pick a few of my favorites and will keep the descriptions to a minimum.

I love this little nook I found at the top of the stairs.

We (my assistant and I) try not to monopolise the couples time at a wedding, we find spots like this and then steal the couple away for 5 – 10 minute little photo sessions before sending them back to their guests.

Often I hear photographers say I dont like very sunny days, the light is too bright, well I LOVE bright sunshine and nothing to me makes a wedding better than if the couple are madly crazily in love (as with The Matherine) and if its a wonderful sunny day for them.

This shot was taken just using reflectors to light the couple and the refleciton of the sun bouncing off the side wall of Nuthurst Grange.

but this shot was lit with the sun directly behind the couple and Clare (my assistant) holding a light just out of camera shot to light them up, I LOVE this photo !

Last but not least is a photo of the girls, The bridesmaids dresses were beautiful as were the girls themselves and although when I arrived they were all running around in PJ’s without makeup on etc, I knew this photo, the bride with her girls would be a stunner

right back to editing the wedding, hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek,

ciao for now

Photo of the Week – March 11 2012

Hello there,

Oh, its been a really busy week for me, I missed last weeks POTW but will catch up in the next few days.

Yesterday saw me shooting the wedding of Clare and Ben in Warwickshire, followed by a reception at Warwick Castle – my photo of the week comes from this wedding.

The wedding was a very intimate affair with only 12 guests in total.  This made for a very relaxed but really nice feeling day – so my photo of the week is of Clare the bride, just chilling in the Kitchen about 30 minutes before popping on her wedding dress.

there was really a sense of calm the whole morning.

this was a simple candid shot, no flash just available light while the bride was talking to dad.

Wedding Reception at The Bell Tanworth in Arden

Hello there,

Very quick post tonight as just got home from an amazing wedding today.  The couple, Rachel and Alister actually live in Australia and came over to the UK to get married.  When I heard that the couple were getting married at Mary Magdalen Church in Tanworth in Arden I was very excited as its a truly beautiful church.  The reception was across the road, and I mean directly, 35 steps across the road at the fabulous The Bell but before that was drinks on the village green and Morris Men dancing to entertain the crowds.

I offered to pop a few photos online so the guys back in Australia could get a quick sneak peek so thats exactly what this is,

its just a quick peek, not going to do my normal blog story just yet, but a whole bunch of photos from today to give you a feel for the day


congratulations to Rachel and Alister
