For my last wedding of 2019 I made the short trip from Birmingham to Wootton Park in the Warwickshire countryside for Sinead and Anant’s wonderful wedding. It’s a venue that I’ve shot at before and which provides a stunning backdrop for any wedding day, it’s probably one of the best spots in the West Midlands for an outdoor ceremony too.
Anant started the wedding day at his parent’s house in Rugby where the groomsmen were making their final preparation for the day ahead. With their blue three piece Moss Bros suits the boys looked very sharp as they headed for the ceremony in a rather swanky Jaguar F-Type (which had also been used for ceremonially crushing a coconut before departing). Meanwhile over at Wootton Park Sinead’s dad was popping the champagne as the girls were readying themselves. With the fizz quaffed Sinead eased into her stunning white lace detailed dress, which was from Sammie Lou Bridal Couture of Rugby, before heading out on the arm of her dad to the ceremony.
Even though it was the middle of October we were treated to some wonderful autumnal sunshine which meant that the ceremony was able to take place outside, making the most of the stunning lakeside setting. Music for the ceremony was provided by amazing Synergy Band who gave a Mediterranean vibe to the proceedings. I’ve seen Synergy Band a couple of times over the last few years, the last time at Jen and Ant’s stunning Somerford Hall wedding last year, and they always deliver with their unique flamenco inspired music. The ceremony was a wonderful affair held in front of the Sinead and Anant’s closest friends and family, and the Wootton Park swans too! With the legal formalities completed everyone then made their way back to the terrace at the main barn for the drinks reception.
Following a few quick portraits around the lake everyone then headed inside for the wedding breakfast to find the room lovingly dressed by Jam Jar Weddings & Events (who also did an amazing job decorating the outdoor ceremony area too). For the evening reception DJ Benny Smyth kept the dancefloor rocking until the early hours with a music mix of chart hits from the 60’s to the current day.
Before I sign off I need to again say a massive thank you to Sinead and Anant for having me along to be their Wootton Park wedding photographer. It was a real pleasure to have been a part of their wonderful day. I also must say a massive thanks to the lovely Amy-Rose from Amy-Rose Photography who did an amazing job second shooting with me on the day. Here’s a few photos from Sinead and Anant’s special day . . .
