Last July I made my way back to the wonderful Wootton Park for Nastasha and Andy’s sizzling summer wedding. Wootton Park is a beautiful exclusive use wedding venue which is located on the outskirts of Henley-in-Arden in the Warwickshire countryside. The venue is set in a picturesque location, surrounded by lush greenery and rolling hills and offers a range of indoor and outdoor spaces, making it a versatile option for weddings of all sizes and styles. It’s a venue that I know well as I’m lucky to photograph there on a fairly regular basis.
I met with Nastasha and her bridesmaids in The Hayloft, the venue’s own private bridal prep room. Bridal hair and makeup were being done by the super talented team from Trust Salons, who are also based onsite at Wootton Park. Meanwhile over in the groom’s den Andy and his groomsmen were keeping busy shooting some pool and having the odd sneaky beer or three as they readied themselves for the ceremony. The boys all looked very sharp in their dark blue three piece suits which were from Next.
Back up in The Hayloft it was time for the ladies to finish their preparations too. Nastasha wore a stunning Lillian West wedding dress, which was purchased from TDR Birmingham. The dress was a perfect fit for her, with its elegant lines and delicate lace details. Meanwhile her bridesmaids wore beautiful pale green dresses which were from David’s Bridal.
The wedding ceremony was held outside by the side of the beautiful Wootton Park lake. The lake provided a stunning backdrop as the couple exchanged vows in front of their closest family and friends, surrounded by the lush greenery of the venue’s gardens. With the legal formalities completed the bride and groom were showered with confetti as they made their way back to the barn for the drinks reception. Garden games were provided to entertain the guests whilst everyone enjoyed the canapés. Also one of the guests provided a musical accompaniment by singing some classic swing songs giving a cool vibe to the hot summer afternoon. Andy, the groom, even found a bit of time to get the Wootton Park rowing boat out and headed off for a quick punt around the lake with his new wife.
With the drinks quaffed and the canapés scoffed the wedding party then made their way into the beautiful Tractor Shed Barn for a stunning three course wedding breakfast. The evening entertainment was arranged by Chamberlain Events. They provided a DJ and saxophone duo who kept the dancefloor moving all night. The DJ played a wide range of music, from classic hits to the latest chart-toppers, ensuring that there was something for everyone. Whilst the saxophone player added a little something special to the evening, creating a live accompaniment to the music and further increasing the atmosphere. Everyone was up on their feet, dancing and having a great time partying late into the night.
Before I sign off I must say a massive thankyou to Nastasha and Andy for having me along as their Wootton Park wedding photographer. It was a real pleasure to have been a part of such a wonderful and fun filled wedding day. I also need to say a big thanks to Benny Smyth Photography too who did a sterling job helping me out on the day. Here’s 50 photos from Nastasha and Andy’s wonderful Wootton Park wedding . . .
