Where do I begin with this amazing wedding?! Sophie and Craig got married in Stratford Upon Avon Town Hall. It was the first time I had ever been there and it was such a beautiful building. It’s always nice when a Bride gets ready in a local hotel to where the ceremony is going to be and walks around to it. People on the way are so lovely and always like seeing a beautiful bride on the way to her wedding.
The reception was held at a venue called Alveston Pastures Farm. It was also the first time I had been there and it was a bit of a hidden treasure. One thing this venue offers, that a lot of venues don’t, is dry hire! Yes you read that right…a barn that allows a dry hire for your wedding!
So many of my couples try and find beautiful places where they can sort everything else out themselves and they are few and far between! This barn does and I had the pleasure as always, to also work alongside Rustic Roast Kitchen as the caterers. They provided the relaxed BBQ food that Sophie and Craig wanted for their day.
With a slight Harry Potter theme running through the day, guests enjoyed the photo booth, especially when it included the invisibility cloaks that were on offer to borrow ;). Then we came to the cake cutting but as you can imagine, it wasn’t your traditional cake cut. There was a cake table and if you were the lucky chosen one, you got to pick which cake you wanted for your table!
In the evening, it started to rain slightly and I commented to Sophie and Craig that it was a shame they hadn’t brought the umbrella they used on their engagement shoot, where it poured down and guess what? They had!! I couldn’t resit a few night time shots with this and was so happy we got to do this for both occasions.
I really hope you love the images. I certainly loved taking them…..
