Wedding Photography at The Belfry Hotel, Sutton Colfield // Nik & Kerry

 

Nik and Kerry got married at The Belfry Hotel in Sutton Coldfield and my what a colourful wedding it was.  

Kerry got ready with her nearest and dearest at the hotel. She wore a beautiful pink and gold Indian outfit matched with gold Jimmy Choo shoes, while her bridesmaids wore navy and blush dresses. Once Kerry was ready, we were able to capture some portraits of our stunning Bride along with some family portraits. 
 
Kerry walked down the aisle with her father to meet her husband-to-be and the service began. 
 
Once the wedding ceremony was complete, the couple headed outside for group photographs with their nearest and dearest. This gave us a chance to get the group shots out the way so we could have some time with our couple to capture the two of them during the couple’s photoshoot. As the newlyweds decided they weren’t going to change outfits, we had enough time to make use of the venue grounds and headed over to the golf course for some images around the bridge and fields. Our team certainly do love getting on golf buggies! We headed back to the venue for more photographs indoors so that the couple had lots of variety.
 
Nik and Kerry made their grand entrance into the reception to cut their cake. After this they sat down at their top table ready for their speeches, which then lead on to them being invited onto the dance floor for their first dance as Husband and Wife. The dance floor opened and the guests joined them to celebrate their new married journey. 
 
Congratulations Nik and Kerry. We wish you all the very best. Thank you for choosing the Finishing Touch to be part of your day.

Wedding Photography at Birmingham City Council House // Lee & Kam

 

Lee and Kam had a lovely civil ceremony at The Council House in Birmingham followed by an evening reception at the Saffron Centre  Kam got ready at her parents home while Lee got ready at the couples lovely home, both in Birmingham. Lee wore a tailored suit with a bespoke tag sewn into his inside pocket, which had his name and the date of his wedding written. We love personal touches!
 
Once Kam arrived, we managed to get a few images and footage of her entering the grand staircase before the ceremony began. A Pianist provided music while Kam and her lovely father made their way down the aisle. Once the wedding ceremony was complete guests headed to the back of the room where there was a display of cakes, snacks, teas and coffees. Guests mingled while the pianist continued to provide background music. We may have also helped ourselves to a cheeky coffee and cake. 
 
Lee and Kam had booked a lovely bedroom and lounge suite at the Hyatt Hotel nearby the Council House. This gave us a chance to take some couple portrays of the newlyweds before their closest guests arrived for a meal. We hung around to capture some of the guests mingling before we left Kam, Lee and their guests to it. 
 
As the reception party was in the evening, we had a chance to have a lengthy break and recharge ourselves as well as our batteries before we made or way to the Saffron Centre. The team split so that 2 members went to cover the venue decor and 2 members went over to Lee and Kam’s room at the Hyatt to capture images of them in their 2nd outfits. 
 
The couple made their entrance into the reception hall, lead by a talented Saxophone player. The headed straight to the cake table on the dance floor to cut their wedding cake. Once they fed each other cake and got some photographs with their loved ones, they surprised all the guests with a choreographed ballroom-bhangra dance fusion. A perfect way to get the dance floor open for all their guests to join them in their celebrations. 
 
Congratulations Lee and Kam. We are delighted to have been part of your wedding journey. Thank you for having us.

Wedding Photography and Video at The Belfry Hotel // Pheobe & Sanj

Sanj and Phoebe were married in a lovely civil ceremony at The Belfry Hotel & Golf Resort in Sutton Coldfield. Phoebe got ready at The Belfry assisted by her very proud Mum and bridesmaids. She wore a stunning white dress, beautifully embellished from the waist up, both front and back, while her bridesmaids wore vibrant coral dresses. Phoebe personalised her Miss KG wedding shoes from Kurt Geiger with blue diamanté  “I Do” stickers on the soles! 

Once the couple shared their vows and said their “I Do’s” they headed to the grounds for a short photo session with family and friends, giving their guests a chance to congratulate the newly married couple on tying the knot. Once inside their reception hall guests were seated for the wedding breakfast and speeches. After speeches, we took Sanj and Phoebe around the grounds of The Belfry for their “Bride & Groom” photoshoot. The Belfry has a world famous golf course, a beautiful lake and attractive bridge that was the perfect setting for their photoshoot. Their transport was a golf buggy which made for some rather fun photo’s as can be seen below!

Once the couple returned to the venue they cut their lovely gold and white wedding cake before heading onto the dance floor for their first dance as Mr and Mrs. The music was provided by Perfect Soundz DJ’s. Sanj and Phoebe slipped away during their evening party to change into their traditional Asian party outfits. Sanj wore a lovely white sherwani with magenta piping to match Phoebe’s stunning magenta Indian Lengha, embellished with lots of sparkly diamanté. Just beautiful!! We snuck the couple away again for a quick  photoshoot in their new traditional outfits before they headed back onto the dance floor for their lively party!

We had such a great time at Sanj and Phoebe’s wedding at one of our favourite venues!! It was full of fun, laughter and love and we can’t thank the lovely newlyweds enough for choosing us to be part of their big day!

Wedding Photography at Park Hall Ramada // Michelle and Gopi

wedding-photography-park-hall-wolverhampton

Gopi and Michelle got married in a lovely civil ceremony at Ramada Parkhall Hotel followed by their reception at the same venue. While Gopi got ready at home surrounded by his loved ones, Michelle got ready in the bridal suite of the venue with her nearest and dearest. Michelle wore a lovely lacey white wedding dress while her bridesmaids wore long blush pink dresses. 

While Michelle got ready, each of the bridesmaids received gifts and they returned the surprise by presenting Michelle with a little booklet of memories. The girls had all known each other from their days at school and were very close friends so this gift was both personal and meaningful to Michelle. How sweet! 

Michelle made her grand entrance with her father into the Orangery of Ramada Park Hall and the wedding ceremony began. The couple shared their vows and officially became husband and wife. After the ceremony, all guests went out into the grounds of the venue for canapés and champagne. The venue has a lovely grand sweeping staircase where we grouped the guests for a big group portrait and confetti shot before taking photographs of smaller groups with the couple. 

Gopi and Michelle had planned an outfit change so we managed to get some photographs of the couple before they headed up to their room to get changed. Once they got changed, they headed back downstairs to make their 2nd grand entrance of the day. Once Michelle and Gopi entered the Ballroom they cut their fabulous colourful cake designed to look like beautiful indian style cushions and then took to the dance floor for their first dance. The dance floor opened and our Newlyweds had their nearest and dearest join them on the dance floor to celebrate their beautiful day. 

It was such a pleasure capturing your special moments, thank you for choosing us to be part of your big day.

Wedding Photography & Video at Brokencote Hall // Aubane & Buzz

Buzz and Aubane married at St. Mary’s Church in Harvington, a quaint little church in a scenic location. Aubane got ready at Brockencote Hall, which was also the couple’s wedding reception venue along with her bridesmaids and close family. The moment we saw the bridesmaids unique, vibrant dress colour we knew this couple had stamped their personalities all over their wedding day. We had two of our team members at the church to greet Buzz and capture his arrival. Buzz’s groomsmen wore grey suits with lime green accents. Buzz’s brother gave us the heads up that our lovely groom would be arriving in his car, which was his prize possession, a sporty Nissan GT-R. Buzz wore a vibrant lime green suit jacket with grey trousers, which matched the Bridesmaids dresses and the details the groomsmen wore. 

When Buzz arrived, we captured a few shots of him and his groomsmen in the Church gardens before they headed into the church to await the Brides arrival. We noticed that Buzz had two dogs, Link and Zelda who were dressed as a little bride and groom too! How cute! That was a first for us, along with the colour scheme of the day!

Aubane arrived and her bridesmaids made their entrance into the church. Aubane’s dad gave her away and the two walked down to music from the video game “The Legend of Zelda”… so thats where we heard the names of Buzz’s dogs before! We do love a wedding that oozes personality! 

Once the couple said their “I Do’s” they headed out of the church and were greeted with a mix of confetti and a butterfly release. While we captured the main group formal photographs with the couples loved ones, some of our team headed to Brockencote Hall to make a start on capturing the reception details. Again, we were greeted with lots of vibrant greens for the table and venue decor. While guests mingled over canapés and champagne, a magician Nick Rushton went round to entertain the guests and a jazz band  also played a few songs in the background. When Aubane and Buzz arrived to the venue, we took them off for a quick couple’s photoshoot around the Brockencote grounds. Guests were seated for the wedding breakfast and awaited the grand entrance of the couple. After their emotional speeches the couple went off to mingle with their guests again while their DJ began to set up. Buzz was surprised by a car shaped ice luge, just in time for their evening party to kick off. 

Buzz and Aubane took the dance floor for their first dance, which lead onto the dance floor being open for the guests to celebrate with them. Another surprise in store for the couple were traditional Bhangra dancers Gabhru Panjab De that came to do an energetic performance for the couple and their guests. As the sun set and it became darker, the couple headed outside with some of their guests to cut their wedding cake, while sparklers were handed out. This reception was full of entertainment, which kept us on our toes throughout the day. 

We had a fab time capturing this wedding and it will one we remember for sure! Thank you Aubane and Buzz for choosing us to be part of your wedding day!
