Summer Wedding in Worcestershire

Relaxed Summer Wedding

I ventured down to Worcestershire earlier this year, to shoot a wedding with my good friend Simon Bunney. It was my first time at Birtsmorton Court in Worcestershire and wow, what a venue!

There was a lot of curtain twitching in the morning, as the forecast had been for torrential rain. Thankfully, it was wrong, and apart from a shower, we were treated to glorious sunshine for the rest of the day! It wouldn’t be a proper English wedding without the weather anxiety!

The great thing about Birtsmorton Court is that it has a church right next to it, so after the ceremony, all the guests made the short walk through the trees to the stunning moated venue. Typically, this is when the shower chose to arrive!

After a day in the beautiful grounds, the guests day was measurably improved by a surprise choreographed first dance that involved the couple as well as the bridesmaids and groomsmen. And yes, that is them dancing to Gangnam Style.
