Wedding of Helen and Glen at Nuneaton Registry Office and Wishaw Country Club
On 7th April 2018 we had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for Helen and Glen. The ceremony was held at Nuneaton Registry Office, followed by Reception at Wishaw Country Sports Club.
The day started a little bit wet. Well more accurately, it was chucking it down just before the ceremony, whilst we took shelter under a tree. Thankfully, just as the guests were starting to arrive, the rain stopped. The bride and groom arrived together with their two boys, which was lovely to see the family start the proceedings all together. The ceremony was beautiful, surrounded by their family and closest friends. Following the I do’s, the registrars opened the front doors which lead straight out in to Riversley Park. The park is beautiful, providing many different backdrops for photos. A few group shots were taken before the wedding party moved on to the Reception.
The reception was held in the barn at Wishaw Country Club. This is a stunning barn conversion for weddings with bar area, and large function room. The room was decorated with the couple’s vintage country theme throughout, with a few personal touches too. The driveway was a great location for the bridal portraiture.
Below are just a few of the images from the big day. We would like to thank Helen and Glen for involving us in your special day and wish you and the boys all the best for the future.
Message from the Bride: “We can highly recommend Philip Charles Photography. From day one of enquiry we were treated in a friendly yet professional manner. Phil and Vicky have answered all the questions I threw at them and were even kind enough to adapt to our day and give us our own special package to suit us. No other local photographer would be willing to do this! On the day they were fab, straight away put our nerves at bay. Throughout the day they took lots of photos some group, couple and my favourite the natural ones. Thank you Phil and Vicky were looking forward to picking our album up soon.”

On 14th December 2017, we made the journey to Birtsmorton Court, near Malvern in Worcestershire, to capture the wedding of Amie and Ross. A little further away than our usual area, but it was certainly worth it!
The venue dates back to 1241, with stunning architecture and gardens. It also has its very own church in the grounds. There are very few venues which give you the option of a church ceremony or civil ceremony. Amie and Ross had their ceremony in the church, which is stunning and was a lovely service. Following the ‘I do’s’, on a very chilly, snowy day, we headed into the breathtaking gardens for the group shots and Bridal portraiture. To warm up, we headed back inside to the roaring fire place and Christmas tree, which provided a great back drop. The theme of the day was Beauty and the Beast, which was executed brilliantly, with very apt table centre pieces and an amazing cake (check out the cake below).
A couple of weeks before the big day, we met with the happy couple to discuss their photography and create a personalised shot list, as we do with all of our couples. They asked for one particular shot very personal to them, which I have included in a small selection of images from the day. We would like to thank Amie and Ross for choosing us to record your special day.
On the 29th December 2017, we had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for the lovely Sarah and Adam. The ceremony was conducted at St Michael’s Church in Boldmere, followed by Reception at the beautiful Moor Hall Hotel in Sutton Coldfield.
The day started off at home with the Bride, Bridesmaids and family getting ready for the special day ahead. Racing ahead of the bridal party, we joined the Groom and Groomsmen at the Church, in time for their last few words of encouragement. The ceremony was lovely surrounded by their family and friends.
Once we arrived at Moor Hall Hotel, with it’s vast grounds and extraordinary features, it was time for us to really get to work. With so many stunning backdrops for wedding portraits, we were truly spoilt.
Once the meal was devoured, and nervous speeches done, night had fallen, therefore the perfect opportunity for some night time portraits. The Bride and Groom had also arranged some sparklers for a bit of fun with the Bridemaids and Groomsmen.
We would like to thank Sarah and Adam for choosing Philip Charles Photography to record your special day, and wish you all the happiness for the future.
On 18th November we had the pleasure of providing the photography for Joanna and Kyle’s special day at the stunning Somerford Hall in Brewood.
The Bride, Bride’s mum, and Bridesmaids all got ready at the venue, which we went along to capture the preparations. As you can imagine, numerous women getting ready in one room, it was rather chaotic, but spirits were high with excitement for the beautiful day ahead. Whilst Joanna was in the final stages of getting ready, we popped down to get some shots of Kyle with his Groomsmen. They were all definitely in high spirits.
The ceremony was lovely, with lots of laughter and emotion. There was a moment during the ceremony where there was a loud noise, it was just Phil dropping his camera! Luckily nothing was broken, and did provide some amusement to the guests. Following the ceremony, everyone moved outside to the stunning gardens for reception drinks and lots more photographs. The building itself offers a great backdrop for the bridal portraiture, along with its wooden gazebo. Internally, the staircase and bridal suite offered more great photographic opportunities.
The day was already special, but to make the day even more special, it was the Bride and Groom’s daughter’s 1st birthday. A cake was brought out whilst the whole room sang to the birthday girl.
We would like to thank Joanna and Kyle for choosing us to capture your day. Below are just a few of our favourite images. If you would like to talk to us about your wedding photography, click here to contact us.
Mel and Paul’s Wedding Ceremony at St Mary’s Guildhall
The historic St Mary’s Guildhall in Coventry hosted the wedding ceremony of the lovely Mel and Paul on 25th August 2017. We had the pleasure of providing their wedding photography.
St Mary’s Guildhall was built over 700 years ago, and you truly do feel like you step back in history. The venue is amazing, providing a stunning backdrop for photographs. As a superb addition to the venue, directly opposite is the ruins of the former Cathedral Church of St Michael.
The ceremony was held in The Great Hall, which was filled with love, laughter and lots of happy tears. Following the ‘I do’s’ we all headed to the courtyard in to the glorious sunshine to capture the couple’s family and friends, and also the Bride and Groom’s portraiture shots. Using the ruins of the former cathedral was a must for some of the portraiture shots.
Thank you to Mel and Paul for choosing Philip Charles Photography to capture your special day. Below are a few of our favourite images.
Wedding of Kirsty and Tahir in Tamworth Castle Grounds
On 20th April we had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for Kirsty and Tahir. The ceremony and reception was hosted by the well known Castle Hotel, Tamworth with photographs being taken in the iconic Tamworth Castle Grounds.
The ceremony was held in the Wedgewood suite. The Bride’s brother was very emotional seeing his sister say her vows, which even brought a lump to our throat. Following the ceremony, the whole wedding party made the short walk down to the Tamworth Castle Grounds for the photos. Thankfully, the weather was on our side. It was a beautiful day, which was a relief to avoid the typical April showers. The Castle Grounds is an excellent location for photography. The layered colourful flowerbeds provide a superb backdrop for the group shots. The historic features of the Castle, obelisk, and Lady Bridge create stunning Bridal portraiture.
We all then headed back to the Hotel to carry on the celebrations in to the evening.
We wish Kirsty and Tahir a long and happy future together, and thank you for choosing Philip Charles Photography to record your special day. Below are a few shots from the day.
