Wedding at Moxhull Hall

Masquerade Wedding at Moxhull Hall, Sutton Coldfield

On 15th June, we had the pleasure of capturing Anne-Marie and Roy’s special day at Moxhull Hall in Sutton Coldfield.

The theme of the wedding was Masquerade, which was absolutely fantastic. All of their family and friends embraced the theme, wearing masks in every colour and style possible. The bride looked stunning in blue and green, with peacock feathers. The ceremony took place in Calliope’s Garden under the gazebo. The weather was certainly on the happy couple’s side with glorious sunshine. Walking down the aisle, the Bridesmaid and Page Boys put on an excellent show, announcing the Bride’s arrival. As a personal touch to the service, the Groom walked up to meet his Bride, to walk down the aisle together, which was truly lovely.

After the ceremony, as an added personal touch, a gold picture frame and chalk boards were waiting for us at Reception. In place of a Guest Book, the Bride and Groom wanted their guests to write a message on the chalk board and have their photograph taken in the frame. These shots were arranged and taken by Vicky, whilst Phil was with the Bride and Groom doing their portraiture.

Below are some of the images from their day.

Farm Wedding in Nuneaton

Jamie-Leigh and Pete’s Farm Wedding

On 1st July, we had the absolute pleasure of providing wedding photography for Jamie-Leigh and Pete’s farm wedding. The ceremony was conducted at Nettle Hill in Coventry followed by reception on their farm in Nuneaton.

This was a truly traditional farm wedding. The theme execution was absolutely spot on, with every attention to detail. The work that the couple put in to make the farm into a perfect wedding venue was immense. They built a haystack stage for the entertainment to perform on, built a swing and bridge over the pond for the photographs, dressed the marquee superbly, and even built a bar using an old box trailer.  This was a dream wedding to photograph with so many shot opportunities.

Here are just a few of the images.

Bridal party arriving by tractor – superb start to the day! 

The ceremony was intimate and lovely 

The Groom being coy with the kiss, but don’t worry, we caught it from the back of the room. The advantage of two ‘togs’ being there to capture different view points. 

Travelling in style, from tractor to the very rare Polaris 

Stunning portraiture on the purpose built bridge and swing   

The confetti shot

The cake, love it!

Traditional barn dance by the bridal party kicked off the evening party. 

This will be one of our most memorable weddings. Thank you so much to Jamie-Leigh and Pete for choosing us to record your special day. Note to the couple – as mentioned on the day, you should open this up as a wedding venue – it’s amazing!!

Wedding at The Plough and Harrow, Birmingham

Wedding Photography for Jasmin and Klaus

On 3 June 2017, we had the pleasure of providing the wedding photography for Jasmin and Klaus at The Plough and Harrow Hotel in Birmingham. 

The happy couple were joined by their family and friends, many of which had flown in from Germany. The ceremony was held at St Dunstan’s in Kings Heath, Birmingham. Followed by Reception at the stunning Plough and Harrow Hotel. The hotel’s Victorian architecture offers a beautiful backdrop to group photos and Bridal portraiture. We very much like working at this venue, the staff are excellent to work alongside and co-ordinated with great precision. 

The day was very relaxed, and thoroughly enjoyed by all. As the couple are from Germany, some of their customs were incorporated in their day. Such as having the speeches in between courses, which worked really well. One of our customs that did take them by surprise was when I jumped in the front seat of the car to take their photo before leaving the chapel. This is one of my favourite shots, so it had to be done. 

Below are few of our favourite shots from the day. We would like to thank Jasmin and Klaus for choosing Philip Charles Photography and wish you all the best for your future together.

Wedding Photography Testimonial

Amazing Wedding Photography Testimonial from Bride and Groom

We had to share this amazing wedding photography testimonial we received from one of our Bride & Groom’s:

“We first met Phil at a friend’s wedding and immediately were drawn to his warmth, humour and how he made everyone feel at ease whilst photographing. When it was our turn a year later we had no doubt who we wanted to document our special day. We had 2 meetings with Phil before the big day, who explained the process clearly and in depth so to capture our day as we wanted it.
On the day of the wedding he was accompanied by a second photographer so was able to capture bridal and groom preparation.
Throughout the day Phil worked efficiently so we were able to spend time enjoying our day too, and captured beautiful photos.
After the wedding Phil and his team were quick to work on the photos and send us a link in able to decide on our wedding album.

After the birth of our little boy we went to a newborn photo shoot with Phil. This was a wonderful experience. Phil was amazing with our son and so patient. He took his time and we did not feel rushed or under pressure to settle our son when he woke and needed feeding. The photos came back better than we could have expected.

We cannot speak highly enough of Phil, Vicky and the rest of the team who have captured the two most precious days of our lives.
Liz and John Hadgkiss”

It has been true pleasure working with Liz and John, and very humbled by their kind words. Below are a few images from their big day at Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel.
