Bordesley Park is one of my favourites! I absolutely love it here and have had the privilege of photographing over a dozen weddings and have many more lovely couples booked in, which is fab!! First of all the owners and Charlie are amazing. They are so lovely and put everything into making sure each day is special and that everything goes to plan! The venue itself is stunning and a photographers dream.
The lovely new Bridal suite is a fab area to get ready in with plenty of space, lots of light (a make up artists and photographers dream conditions!!) and so many of my brides have loved to hear the buzz downstairs when everyone is arriving for the ceremony! The Tudor Barn is a beautiful ceremony room with lovely neutral colours, lush wooden floors and a countryside view that is so pretty. You will be sure to have so many lovely ceremony photos and the registrars that come here are so lovely and I feel like I know them all quite well which is great!
After the ceremony, guests are escorted onto the beautiful lawn for drinks and canapés. You really can make it whatever you want. Garden games, bouncy castles, musicians, ice cream, magicians, you can go as far as your imagination lets you! Once again the views are phenomenal and wherever you turn it is just pure countryside. Couples can rest assured that they will have so many beautiful couple shots as the venue has so many little nooks and crannies and for the more adventurous you can always take a stroll over to the field, a good excuse to buy some wedding wellies!!!
Then there is the marquee which is amazing. A space to seat all your guests and still have room to enjoy the setting. It is a blank canvas where you can do as much or as little as you want to put your own stamp on your wedding. I have seen the marquee in all sorts of colours, with all sorts of decorations and layouts, it really is great. There is the cocktail bar (which I love!!) and you can choose your own wedding day specials! There are on site loo's and all the essentials so you don't have to worry about anything. And then there is the food!! The catering selection is amazing and having been so lucky to sample quite a few different meals! I am happy to report that the food is amazing! All of the suppliers at this venue are so lovely and everyone works so well together, another reason why I love it and feel so welcome every time I go there.
Then there is the added bonus of the sunsets and rainbows! If you are luck enough to have a glorious sunny day then I will always look out for the sunset so that we can capture those beautiful shots and if you do have some rain then you almost always have a rainbow (I have had two there already!) Charlie also has a fab list of music suppliers for the evening do and we have also had a few sparkler photos just before the first dance which is quite nice! Oh and don't forget the trampoline!! So whose weddings have I had here! Lets have a look!!
Nic & Adam were the first couple to kick off 2017 and what a day we had! We had loads of fun, the weather was amazing, all of the beautiful springtime flowers looked so pretty and the details were amazing! Gorgeous flowers from Clare at Bella Lily, stunning naked cake from Gail at Gails Cake Pantry, amazing food from Rustic Roast, beautiful videography from Rob at Fuzz Films and such pretty make up from Clair Bache. Nic's dress was so beautiful, we had fun on the trampoline, had so much fun doing all the photos, amazing speeches and great dancing! Such a perfect day, I loved every second!
Jackie & Ant's Wedding was amazing! Charlie is their daughter so it was a real honour to be asked to be their photographer! Jackie got ready in the Bridal Suite and her dress was gorgeous! We had so much fun and it was such a perfect day! Jackie's son wore his uniform and looked super smart, Clair from Bella Lily Flowers did all of the bouquets and table pieces which were stunning and there were so many details, it was great! Beautiful colours, lovely food, great speeches, so much love in their family and fun with sparklers!! What more could you ask for!!
Sharon & Carl had a beautiful reception here. They had a local church ceremony and then we all went back to Bordesley for photos and their reception. We had so much fun all day and the weather stayed lovely for them. Their decorations were very elegant with silvers and blacks. It was a super day filled with all of their lovely family and friends. Gail from Gails Cake Pantry did their cake which was a stunning 5 tier silver and white cake full of sparkles!
