Lucy & Lee had the most perfect fairy tale wedding at Hogarths, Solihull. Hogarths is a beautiful venue in West Midlands with some amazing grounds and their renowned ‘Kissing Bridge’ It has its own little island with gazebos and small building in which couples can have their ceremony outdoors in the open. Perfect for summer weddings!
Working along side my photographer husband Duncan Cox we started with a very relaxed Lucy for the bridal preparations. She had a team of bridesmaids, hair stylists & make up artists all their to get her ready for her big day. They did an amazing job and I must say she looked absolutely stunning. She blew Lee away when she walked over the bridge and onto the Island at Hogarths for their outdoors ceremony.
The ceremony was perfect and then the day progressed onto the receptions celebrations. Most of which was held outside with garden games and family photographs. Only a small amount of rain happened but this did not dampen their spirits of stop anyone enjoying the day.
Myself and Duncan took the happy couple off for a romantic shoot and it was a time for them to have a moment alone and to soak it all in. We made use of the Kissing Bridge at Hogarths in the West Midlands and I got some lovely romantic footage of them cuddling and kissing. My style for this session is all very natural videography and I do not like to do any cheesy poses with my couples.
The celebrations continued throughout the day with emotional and funny speeches from the wedding party, delicious food from the venue and a romantic first dance from the newly married couple. Lucy then kicked off the evening disco in style with all her bridesmaids and a dance performance specially planned for a shocked Lee! He sat and enjoyed the show with his best man whilst Lucy and all her girls danced away to a Beyonce track! it was certainly one to remember! It was a surprise for me let alone Lee!
Lots of dancing continued and we stayed to capture most of the action before leaving them to enjoy the rest of the night.
It was my second time filming a wedding video at Hogarths in the West Midlands. Its a lovely venue and I hope to return again one day.
I wish Lucy & Lee all the happiness in their new life together and I hope the wedding films bring back memories for years to come.
