Jenny & Andrew's Wedding at Burton On Trent & The Priest House Castle Donington

It's always a pleasure to get to make a visit to a church we've not been to before - there aren't that many left around the area that we haven't already been to! In November we visited the lovely St Mary & Modwen's Church in Burton On Trent (just near the brewery!) for Jenny & Andy's wedding.

We made a quick stop in at Jenny's house to get a few preview shots, and then it was off to church.

Over at church the chaps were getting ready, Andy was checking over his Groomsmen, and getting buttonholed and fussed over by the ladies.

Along with a regular shot of the fellas posing, we opted for a bit of dramatic lighting to liven up the grey November day.

Soon enough Jenny was rolling up and ready to go...

The interior of St Mary & Modwen's is fantastic, and the minister was kind enough to allow us good access to capture the Bride's arrival, the ceremony and the register signing afterwards.

I love this caught moment, I wonder what they were looking at?

Other than being a bit dark and grey, it was a lovely day, and that same lack of light made it really easy to drag the shutter speed good and long to inject a real sense of motion into the shot of everybody throwing confetti.

Just a short walk down the road from church was this lovely old period building which I couldn't resist using as a backdrop just before we left to make the trip over to Castle Donington.

When we arrived at the lovely Priest House Hotel we took off for a wander around to get some shots around the grounds and by the river.

Meanwhile, the guests were enjoying a drink and a chat...

We're always on the lookout for something a little different and we really like the look of this shot by the hotel's staircase window.

And as 'different' shots go, they don't get better than this to finish with...

Congratulations Jenny & Andrew!

Sue & Nigel's Wedding at Morley Hayes

It was a misty Autumnal afternoon when we made the trip over to Morley Hayes for Sue & Nigel's wedding. I stopped in to catch some preparations at home on the way, and grab a cup of tea with the girls.

It's a tough life.

Over at Morley Hayes, we set up a couple of shots of the fellas arriving.

The newly refurbished rooms at Morley really look the part, with warm, rich, inviting colours for a cool November afternoon.

After the ceremony everybody dutifully wandered outside for a few family shots, and I took the opportunity to grab some cute photojournalistic style shots too.

One of the main plus points of braving the murky weather was to get some shots with the lovely countryside, and to show the stunning colours which were right at their peak.

But all too soon, the warmth of the function suite beckoned...

Even the staff commented on how amazing the finished room looked!

Speeches were before the meal, so I decided to hang around to grab just a few shots of the proceedings.

Congratulations Sue & Nigel!
