Vanessa & Will – Baxterley Church & Wishaw Country Sports
“We absolutely love the photos and they have brought back so many amazing memories!
We can’t thank you enough for really capturing the joy and happiness of the day!”
In September we were in the Northern part of Warwickshire for a wonderful summer wedding full of life and fun. Vanessa and Will got married at the small parish church in Baxterley, near Atherstone with the reception at the Wishaw Country Sports Club. With strong family links to the local farming community, this was a wedding inspired by country life.
Following the church service, the wedding party made its way on foot to the drinks reception, held in the garden of Latimer’s Rest – a private home close to the church. The owners hire out their beautiful garden for various events and it made an ideal location for Vanessa and Will’s guests to relax in the afternoon sunshine before moving onto the reception proper.
After drinks and some photos, it was time to move onto Grounds Farm, part of the Wishaw Country Sports Club. This isn’t a traditional ‘wedding venue’, but it suited Vanessa and Will’s wedding perfectly. The club-house was decked-out beautifully and it just felt right. Oh and the food was great too 🙂
Following the buffet meal and speeches we took the couple out for photos. Although the sports club doesn’t really have the kind of grounds you’d expect at a more traditional wedding venue, it does have plenty of working farmland with open fields. We found several great spots to use n the gorgeous evening light, giving Vanessa and Will a nice quiet break before the evening barn-dance started.
We loved working on this wedding, from start to finish. Great people, a perfect choice of venues and terrific crowd. Enjoy the pictures…
