Berrow Court Wedding Photographer – Emma and Richard

A couple of weekends ago I photographed the most relaxed and stress free wedding I’ve ever been to, Emma and Richard were easily the two most chilled out people I’ve seen on their wedding day. Even a serious bridal dress failure prior to departing for the ceremony didn’t cause Emma to fluster!

On the morning of the big day I met up with Emma and her Mum at Salon-G in Bearwood where they were doing their bridal preparations. Once the hair and makeup were finished we popped back to Emma’s Mum’s house to meet up with the bridesmaids and get Emma into her Enzoani wedding dress. Unfortunately Emma’s Uncle Joe was a bit too frail to make the wedding ceremony and reception so the bridal party dropped into his house on the way out to pay him a visit. This allowed him the opportunity to see Emma in her dress and to wisher her all the best for her big day. I also used the opportunity to get a few portraits in the garden with Uncle Joe before heading off to Berrow court.

Berrow Court is a stunning venue, it’s a grade II listed Victorian Mansion tucked away just off Harborne High Street.  It was once the home of the distinguished politician Joseph Chamberlain and was built and decorated in the arts and crafts style. The interior of the building has been lovingly restored with wonderful wood panelling and beautiful period details throughout. The wedding ceremony was a lovely affair, held in the Gold Room overlooking the lawns of the property.

After the ceremony we all headed out into the garden for drinks, some formal group shots and a few portraits of the bride and groom on their own. Then it was back inside to the Garden Room for the wedding breakfast. The room and tables had been wonderfully decorated with origami flowers which were made by Emma and Richard, vintage china and old books. After the delicious food had been served we were treated to some lovely speeches from the bride, groom and best man before the ceremonial cutting of the wedding cake and first dance.

Here’s a few pictures from Emma and Richard’s beautiful wedding day . . .
