Anna & Simon – Brockencote Hall, Worcestershire
“Wow! We are completely blown away by the photos, not only have you beautifully captured everything that happened, but you have also managed to capture the feeling of the day and that is really special, so thank you. I still can’t manage to watch the slide show all the way through without crying! “
We had been wanting to return to Brockencote Hall since photographing two weddings there at the end of 2013. This upmarket venue, located in rural Worcestershire has plenty of photo opportunities, superb food and excellent staff. It’s one of those venues which is always enjoyable to work at so we were very pleased to take on a booking for Anna and Simon’s December wedding.
Two days after Christmas we were charged up and ready to go as we headed out to start work on Anna and Simon’s big day. Anna and her sisters got ready at her family’s home while Simon and his groomsmen chose the Stone Manor Hotel. Their wedding cerermony took place in Anna’s home village of Clent.
Following a huge amount of post-ceremony hugs, the wedding party made their way to the reception at Brockencote Hall and after getting the family group photos out of the way we took Anna and Simon for a tour of the grounds for their photo-shoot. With the winter light starting to wane we had to move quickly but the couple were lovely to work with and didn’t let the cold bother them as we made our way around the venue.
Anna and Simon’s day had a smashing atmosphere all the way through, from the morning preps until the evening party. As the wedding was on a Saturday, the day still had that relaxed Christmassy feel about it and this really kicked in during the evening party when the dance floor was packed while the excellent band provided entertainment. A really big thank-you to Anna and Simon for choosing us to photograph their fantastic day.
