Kate & Ben’s Birmingham Wedding Photographer At Henley Golf Club

From the first moment I met this wonderful couple, I knew I’d love to be their wedding photographer. I was even more thrilled to find out they were to be married at the stunning Henley Golf Club. Having seen images from this venue, I knew there would be many opportunities for gorgeous wedding photography.

Both Kate & Ben love to travel. This is something I too hold close to my heart. It was safe to say I was extremely jealous when I discovered the location for their honeymoon! I knew that wedding photography meant a lot to this couple and I was excited to work with them.

Have a look at Kate & Ben’s engagement shoot here – Here.

Arriving Early At Capelli’s Hairdressers For The Preps Photography

So the big day was finally here and I arrived bright and early to capture those precious moments. Kate had chose to get ready at her local salon. It was a lovely setting and the atmosphere was palpable. Everyone was in good spirits and having a great time. For me this is the perfect setting for wedding photography as I love to document emotion.

As a Birmingham wedding photographer I love to create a unique perspective on a situation and Capell’s offered me that. Catching a reflection from one of the many mirrors, or silhouetting against the bay windows. So now with the girls hair and makeup complete it was time to head over to the Church. Followed by Henley Golf Club.

Corpus Christi Church, Birmingham For The Ceremony 

When arriving at this extremely unique building, I was blown away by it’s beauty. The inside of Corpus Christi Church is a sight to behold. I have never seen such an incredible ceiling. This is why I love being a Birmingham wedding photographer, getting to see all these wonderful locations. When my clients give me such a beautiful canvas to work with wedding photography is a joy.

Before the Bride and Groom arrive I like to photograph the guests candidly. For most weddings family and friends haven’t seen one another all together in along time. Capturing the emotion in this situation is wonderful. I was now thinking about all the moments I would be able to capture later in the day at Henley Golf Club.

Kate & Ben had decided to have a Catholic service and it was a privilege to witness it. I have only done a few Catholic ceremonies and this was equally as special.

Now it was time to head over to Henley Golf Club for the rest of the day. Nestled on the outskirts of the beautiful market town of Henley, one mile away from the River Thames, Henley Golf Club is the perfect location for wedding photography. The grounds are simply beautiful and now my mind was racing with ideas for Kate & Ben’s portraits.

In the build up to the wedding, Kate had mentioned to me that we might go out into the Golf Course for some portraits. To my delight we would be using golf karts to get around! In the weeks leading up to the wedding Kate & Ben had found some gorgeous locations for wedding photography. Henley Golf Club certainly did not disappoint, as a Birmingham wedding photographer I was in my element.

With the formal photographs and portraits all done it was now time for the speeches. This is one of my favourite times during a wedding. Being a photographer who looks for emotion and candid reactions this is a great time for me. Wedding photography Birmingham was made so much easier by the great setup at Henley Golf Club.

How The Rest Of the Day Unfolded At Henley Golf Club, Birmingham

The speeches were an absolute joy to photograph. I was trying really hard not to laugh at the jokes being cracked. As a Birmingham wedding photographer remaining professional at all times is very important to me. However I’am human and during these speeches I did find myself giggling from time to time! There is one image that I captured from this part of the day that really sums it up. Ben had just said something that totally caught Kate and her Mom off guard. Make sure you have a look for that image below 🙂

With the evening guests now arriving at Henley Golf Club, I like to get in amongst the action. The emotion is now back to fever pitch and the drinks have been flowing for a few hours. It’s at this point in the day I love to capture everyone just having a great time. Being a wedding photographer from Birmingham I’m so lucky that I get to be a part of these special occasions. The joy at weddings is what keeps me motivated to keep making ever lasting memories for my clients.
