A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure pf photographing the wedding of Dave and Shaz at the Hogarth Hotel in Solihull. There is a risk with the weather at any time of the year but November could either be beautiful or horrible. Actually is was sort of ok. On the way over the sun was out and I was hopeful of getting some great outdoor shots but the cloud soon came over and, although we did get outside, it was only briefly because of the cold, at least the rain stayed off until later.
After seeing the groom and his friends off we drove to the hotel and went to meet the bride in a sumptuous room, complete with a four poster which provided a beautiful backdrop to show off the stunning wedding dress.
There was also a huge bay window with seating in that provided some great opportunities for photos as the light streamed in.
The reception took place in a marque attached to the hotel and was beautifully laid out and finished off with some wonderful table centrepieces supplied by the excellent Flowers by Schmize, (check her out on FB). All her flowers were stunning and I will showcase some photos in a later blog.
I managed to get some group photos outside before stealing the bride and groom away for a quick half hour photo session as there is a lovely little bridge in the grounds which is ideal.
All in all we had a wonderful day with an amazing couple and it really was a pleasure to be able to help celebrate their day.
