Wedding season – Summer
Venue – Birtsmorton Court
I love my work as a Wedding Photographer, one of the main reasons for this is that each wedding and ceremony is totally unique, as was the case recently at Sheena and Lee’s wedding at the grade 1 listed Birtsmorton Court, which boasts to be the most picturesque wedding venue in Worcestershire with its medieval moat, I can certainly vouch for this accolade! If you are looking for venues with a difference, consider Birtsmorton Court Weddings.
As an integral part of my job as a Worcestershire Wedding Photographer, I usually get to take pre wedding photos of the ‘soon to be’ bride and groom well in advance of their wedding day, which also gives me a chance to meet and get to know the couple and then have a good idea of their plans and expectations of a Wedding Photographer.
However, although this wasn’t the case with Sheena and Lee’s wedding as I hadn’t met the couple beforehand, I arrived early in the morning of the big day to take the wedding preparation photographs and was immediately made to feel welcome by the happy couple, their family and the amazing staff, with special thanks to Amy the wedding coordinator at Birtsmorton Court in Worcestershire who did a great job to make the day go according to plan.
This wedding was especially unique for me and it was the first of hopefully many, as it was an English/Asian fusion wedding, the ceremony took place in two parts and thankfully the weather was kind as both ceremonies took place outdoors in the superbly manicured majestic ‘white’ gardens at Birtsmorton Court.
The first part started proceedings with the traditional English legalities of a civil marriage, accompanied by a string quartet (very quintessentially English!), the bride, groom, bridesmaids and guests all looked fabulous! Having said their marriage vows the wedding party made their way to the terrace overlooking the medieval moat for canapes and drinks whilst the bridal party got ready for the second ceremony, where both bride and groom changed into traditional colourful Asian wedding attire and then treated the guests to elements from a traditional Asian wedding, it really was very beautiful, it was a fantastic opportunity for a Midlands Wedding Photographer and I really hope to do more unusual weddings.
The venue for this English Asian Wedding truly was absolutely stunning, a perfect backdrop for a very photogenic and happy couple. After both ceremonies the wedding party made its way to Birtsmorton’s ivory marquee for the wedding breakfast and speeches and of course the traditional cutting of the cake, which made for the perfect end to a perfect day. Family and guests were delighted and thoroughly enjoyed each ceremony, the whole day went very smoothly without any hiccups, a great example of how two people from two different cultures can be united as one.
