Back at the start of August I had the huge pleasure to photograph Emily and Phil‘s stunning wedding at the wonderful Warwick House in the Warwickshire village of Southam. It was a fantastic day which featured a beautiful bride, a dashing groom, a windmill and a detailed history of Scarborough (you’ll need to ask Emily’s dad for a recap)! Warwick House is a fantastic location for a wedding. The building has a long history dating back to the 1800’s when it was originally a hospital before becoming a wedding venue in 2010.
The day started early at Warwick House where Emily was holding her bridal preparations. Emily’s hair and makeup were being done by Claire Harmer with Justine Mariah being kept busy with the bridesmaids. As the ceremony approached Emily eased into her stunning Amanda Wyatt wedding dress which was from Bea’s Bridal Studio before leaving with her father in a vintage Rolls Royce. Back over at their home in Hanbury Phil was getting ready with his groomsmen. They donned their customised Ted Baker suits and then busted out the champagne for one final pre-wedding drink before heading to the church.
The ceremony took place at All Saints Church in Harbury in front of a packed congregation. The wedding ceremony was conducted by the rather brilliant Reverend Craig who delivered an entertaining but heartfelt service. With the rings exchanged and the register signed everyone then headed out into the churchyard to shower the newly married couple with confetti.
On our way back from the ceremony we made a diversion via Chesterton Windmill for a few portraits before meeting up with the rest of the wedding party back at Warwick House for the drinks reception. With the drinks quaffed everyone then made their way back inside for the wedding breakfast, perfectly timed, as the heavens opened for a typical British summer rain storm. After the wedding breakfast the plan had been for garden games outside in the sunshine but the rain was still falling heavily. Instead we had giant Jenga and coits in the bar before the DJ got the dancefloor rocking in the main room.
Before I sign off I need to say a massive thank you to Emily and Phil for having me along to photograph their brilliant wedding day. Also a massive thanks too to Lewis from Lewis Membury Photography who second shot with me on the day. Here’s 50 photos from Emily and Phil’s special day . . .
