Emma & James – Avoncroft Museum Wedding

“They’re brilliant! Really took us back to the day itself and reminded us of moments that we didn’t even realise you were capturing.”

Our first visit of the year to Avoncroft Museum was on St George’s Day for the wedding of Emma and James.

Everything for their wedding took place within the local area, with James getting ready at his parents home in Redditch while Emma and her bridesmaids had picked a lovely converted barn at Dormston.

Photographing the ‘preps’ is a really important part of our coverage of a wedding day.  It’s not really so much about simply getting pictures hair, makeup and ties, but more about showing the interaction between between people.  The morning preps are a key element of the story-telling aspect of our photography and with Emma and James we had much to work with.

Avoncroft’s main Guesten Hall is very much a blank canvas when it comes to weddings, but with its lovely red-brick and tile interior and ornate 14th century roof, people often keep any extra decoration quite simple.  Emma and James’ table decorations were rustic but also elegant and uncluttered as they had to leave room for several rounds of sandwiches and cakes, provided by our friends Colin and Debbie of Complete Caterers.  All of the gorgeous flowers were provided by The Nursery Shop in Redditch.

When it came to the couple’s evening photo shoot we were in for a bit of a treat.  Although not quite as golden as in the smmer, the conditions on this Spring evening were beautiful, with some really lovely light to use as we made our way around the multitude of old buildings.

Evening entertainment was provided by The Playlist.

Emma and James – thank you.  We loved working with you on your wedding. 🙂
