Early in June, we were back in Warwickshire for a wedding we’d been looking forward for a long time. Jenny and John came to us as a direct result of us photographing Jenny’s sister Katherine’s wedding all the way back in August 2009, so we were going to be seeing a good number of familiar faces.
Jenny and John chose to get married at the chapel of St James – a beautiful little building situated in the gorgeous grounds of Walton Hall. The reception was held at the same venue Katherine and Mike used – Ettington Chase and this time we got to see a bit more of the grounds and surrounding fields as we took Jenny and John on their main ‘couple’ photo session in the gorgeous evening light.
The staff at Ettington were great, especially the events manager who liased with throughout the reception and really kept things running nicely and the food was lovely too.
This was a really great wedding to photograph. Jenny and John are a smashing couple and seeing Katherine, Mike and their baby daughter was lovely. Their wedding – nearly 6 years prior – had resulted in a picture which we used a lot in advertising and promotion in the following years. We have fond memories of getting the (slightly tipsy) bridal party out on that summer evening and getting them all silhouetted against the setting sun – all striking an impromptu pose. Jenny and John had asked that we do a similar picture for them and we were only too happy to do so. A fun end to what had been a cracking day.
