Terry & Louise Worcestershire wedding at the Abbey Hotel Redditch

Sunday 22nd July 2012 saw Glyn T Jones Photography attend the wedding of the lovely Terry and Louise as their official wedding photographer. The civil ceremony took place at the Abbey Hotel and Country Club, Redditch, Worcestershire. this wedding venue is truly an amazing place to get married.

We arrived at the hotel at around 11.30 am and made our way to the room Louise, our bride, had spent the previous night in. Here we found Louise all made up wearing her dressing gown with her bridesmaids Julie and Georgie all looking extremely nervous. Here we photographed some pre-wedding photographs of the bridal party preparing for the wedding ceremony. It was now the turn of Terry, our bridegroom, to be the focus of our cameras along with Gary his best man. We photographed them all suited and booted outside the hotels bar, this location has amazing views across the Worcestershire golf course and beyond. Terry was the true definition of calm, Gary on the other hand seemed very nervous. Once all the wedding photographs of the grooms men was complete, they along with all the guests were ushered into the Henley In Arden Suite at the Worcestershire wedding venue.

We now returned to the brides room, here we found Louise, Julie and Georgie all dressed ready and waiting for the days event, Louise looked like a fairytale bride, absolutely stunning in her white jewelled wedding dress. Julie and Georgie also looked beautiful dressed in their deep purple bridesmaid dresses. We photographed the bridal party, both in traditional wedding photography style along with some more unusual arty shots while we awaited Mike, Louises father.

Once we were informed that everyone was now safely out of sight in the wedding ceremony room we ventured outside for Louise to make her way to the ceremony. We photographed the bridal party as they made their way. Louise looked beautiful with her jewelled wedding dress sparkling in the bright sunshine.

Settled in position for the photography of the wedding service we awaited the entrance of Louise while a harp was played skillfully by the musician that the couple had booked for the occasion. The service went off without a hitch, all the guests were treated to a beautiful love song from the musician which she sang while playing along on her harp. There were not many dry eyes in the room by the time she had finished her song!

With the service over, and the couple now legally married we all moved outside into the stunning Worcestershire countryside for the traditional wedding photography of the congregation and various family group photography. We now took the newlyweds to one side to photograph some loving portraits of them enjoying each others company. Terry and Louise were very easy to work with, the love between them was plain to see, this emotion came over into the photographs perfectly.

We now posed the loving couple in the room the wedding breakfast was going to be taking place with their two tier wedding cake, we photographed the traditional  cake cutting ceremony along with some fun comedy shots.

It was now time for the speeches before the wedding breakfast. The guests were shown into the room, and once they had all found their seats and settled Terry and Louise were formally introduced as the new Mr and Mrs Haywood. The wedding speeches got underway, the best mans speech was great , littered along the way with various jokes and gags . Once all the speeches had been photographed we left the venue to allow the newlyweds and their guests to enjoy the three course wedding breakfast.

We returned in the evening back to the Abbey Hotel Redditch to photograph the couples first dance which was performed underneath a huge balloon that was to be popped showering the dancing couple with smaller balloons.

We would like to thank Terry and Louise for choosing us to be their Staffordshire wedding photographer on their loving wedding day. You both were a true pleasure to work with on your wedding day.

We wish you both a very long, happy and healthy future together as man and wife.
