Wedding Photography – Hogarths
I meet a lot of people photographing weddings. At some weddings, some wedding guests stick in my mind. I met Alison and Ben at a wedding that I photographed several years ago and they stuck in my mind. Maybe it was because they are just so nice and secretly I was thinking I hope they get married and call me up.
My wish came true and I was delighted when they did called me up to discuss their own wedding plans. We met over coffee and we spoke about their wedding. I was so excited hearing that they were getting married two days before christmas and even more excited that they chose me to photograph their wedding.
Hogarth Wedding Venue
So two days before Christmas I headed off to Hogarths Hotel in Solihull. I forgot how much I enjoy photographing at Hogarths wedding venue. It has some of the most amazing grounds and I love all the decor inside. I was met firstly by father christmas walking across the car park (true story) and then the warmest of greetings from the bridal party. The bridal preparations were under way in the most amazing honeymoon suite. One highlight for me was when Alison’s father saw her in her wedding dress. His face was a picture.
Hogarth Outdoor Wedding Ceremony
As long as it wasn’t too wet, Alison and Ben wanted to get married outside. Hogarth has the most amazing private outdoor wedding ceremony. It looks like it should be abroad, surrounded by a lake and very large trees. The skies were bright blue as Alison walked down the path towards her groom to be Ben. His face was amazing as she arrived looking beautiful in her wedding dress. The wedding ceremony was just perfect and was full of emotion. Having an outdoor wedding ceremony was just amazing and guests were all singing Christmas songs. It really was magical.
Winter weddings Hogarths
After the wedding ceremony , drinks and canapés were served for the wedding guests. We had the most perfect light and I borrowed Ali and Ben for 5 minutes private time away from guests and captured some intimate portraits of them. The guest were seated in the wedding marquee and the wedding breakfast was served . It was followed by some very emotional speeches, a james bond line up , gambling and lots of dancing.
Alison and Ben so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing family and friends . Their first dance was utterly special as Alison’s bridesmaid sang it live for them.
Congratulations to Alison & Ben. I wish you all the best for the future . If you wish to see their full gallery please click here (Ask Ali or Ben for the password )
