I loved shooting Nicola and David’s gorgeous wedding. Birtsmorton Court is a Grade I listed fortified medieval moated manor house set in ancient woodlands near Malvern in Worcestershire. It boasts itself as ‘the most picturesque wedding venue in the West Midlands’ and I have to say I agree. It’s a real favourite with Birmingham wedding photographers.
Nicola and her bridal party arrived early at Birtsmorton Court and took advantage of Birtsmorton Courts lovely onsite accommodation to get ready in on the day. Nicola looked amazing in her Eddy K dress that she bought from Mi Amor bridal.
Hair on the day was done by Becky from Blow with makeup provided by Nicola’s kind friend. The overall effect was beautifully natural and understated glamour. Nicola looked every inch the bride.
I loved the colour scheme on the day of lilac and white which was evident in the flower arrangements, Nicola’s bouquet and the beautiful way the reception room was dressed. I loved the flower arrangements especially as they looked natural and not ‘overdone’ which was perfect for Nicola and David’s wedding.
After a lovely ceremony everybody headed outside for a drinks and canapes reception in the pretty courtyard garden overlooking the moat. With Nicola and David’s guest happily nibbling and mingling, I took my chance to quickly whisk them away for some lovely portrait shots set around the grounds of Birtsmorton Court. They amongst my favourites of the day. Take a look!
The wedding reception followed with a sumptuous wedding breakfast provided by those clever people at Dine with Style, all washed down with drinks and some very well received speeches.
The evening’s celebrations got off to a fun start with sparklers in the marquee garden, followed by the cutting of the prettiest wedding cake and then a romantic first dance. Live musical accompaniment from Lee Evans at Acoustic Flavours quickly saw that guests both young and less young joined Nicola and David on the dancefloor for some serious cutting of shapes!
A beautiful laid back and fun family wedding at a breathtakingly beautiful venue. What more could a wedding photographer ask for? Congratulations to Nicola and David for getting married and thank you for allowing me to tell the story of your wonderful wedding day.
