I have always been fascinated by what a creative mind can achieve through the lens. That is why I have been hooked on to photography from a young age. Increasingly, I find the wonderful photo opportunities that weddings offer and now, I am a full fledged and recognised Warwickshire Wedding
I have worked through several wedding and my experience taught me the importance of the overall ambience of the place and backdrops of every picture. In my professional opinion, location adds the real mood to the event as well as to the photography. Therefore, choosing the appropriate place for holding the wedding is of utmost importance.
Warwickshire has many exotic locations. The most famous place in all of Warwickshire is the birthplace of the great bard himself. Stratford-upon-Avon made famous by William Shakespeare still preserves the old world charm and the river Avon meandering through it lends the all too romantic atmosphere, which is much a part of wedding celebrations.
>One of my favourite places that are outstanding for Reportage Wedding Photography is the Mercure Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare Hotel. This four star hotel has a great external appearance with a lot of character. The Tudor facade in white and black timber is often photographed by tourists and together with the stone floors and beams of wooden logs, they add richness to any Wedding Photography. The Hotel has license to conduct civil marriages and partnerships. The glamorous ball room having intact its period features can hold up to 80 guests for a sit-down meal. It is also blessed with a large ballroom and the garden terrace is directly accessed for here. This makes for beautiful Warwickshire Wedding Photography. The Cabinet Room with lovely wood panelling can be used for smaller groups ensuring an intimate feeling for the ceremony. The warmth of the log fires lends an enchanting glow to the wedding photographs.
The interesting thing about the 78 bedrooms in the hotel is that they re all individually named after characters and plays of Shakespeare. Some of them are named Richard II, Othello, Claudius and even the icons of all romance, Romeo and Juliet. One of the best loved rooms is the Junior Suite, which bears the name of the King of the Fairies, ‘Oberon’ from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. This dream like quality is carried on through the celebrations here. And to add to the excitement offered to the wedding guests staying here, would be resident ghosts with whom they share their accommodation. Lucy is quite the most famous ghost here who hung herself in one of the rooms when she was attacked by a villain. Another famous ghost is the ‘Old Soldier’ who frequents the lounge and looks very real. Unfortunately, none of these can be part of the Wedding Pictures, since they obviously cannot be photographed by any Warwickshire Wedding Photographer.
In addition to the historic nature of the hotel, a prospective bride and groom can look forward to help from wedding planners for colours and themes for their wedding. And a delicious wedding meal can be prepared by trained chefs make sure that the best of British flavour permeate the whole meal!
