The summer of 2016 has been one of my most productive and satisfying as a wedding cinematographer. Just look at the day that Keran and Niel had when they tied the knot at Warwick House in Southam! The sun shone, and the skies were so blue it was as if Mother Nature was celebrating along with the happy couple. As far as wedding venues in Warwickshire go, it’s difficult to better Warwick House – certainly for a backdrop to wedding film. I have seen a lot of party venues around the UK, and I can appreciate why this incredible wedding venue is so popular. Since the weather was dry and sunny, Niel and Keran were able to exchange vows under a lovely gazebo in the meticulously manicured gardens. Had the weather not been so favourable, Plan B was to use the magnificent Banqueting Hall, the Warwick Room, or the Regency Room – all of which are licensed for civil ceremonies.
Keran did a fantastic job planning the wedding. One of her bridesmaids described her as always putting an abundance of thought, dedication, and effort into everything she did, and her attention to detail resulted in a superbly photogenic event. She and her ten bridesmaids wore gowns of the softest mint green – Keran’s was accented with shimmering gold, while her attendants’ dresses had intricate beaded necklines. It can be difficult to find a shade that flatters everyone in a large wedding party, but Keran pulled it off flawlessly. While guests mingled and chatted in the summer sunshine, the photographer and I made our way with the newlyweds to a nearby location to make the most of the summer flowers and an eye-catching windmill. I loved the contrast of going from a flower-filled field – the most typically English country summer scene you can imagine – into a dramatic all-white ballroom for the evening’s entertainment. Keran and Niel’s good taste was evident in the style of the decoration, the beautiful wedding cake, and the elegant atmosphere they created.
A happy day was only marred by the absence of Niel’s father. The groom’s sister was eloquent in her tribute to their father as she assured everyone he would have been proud of the man Niel had become, and as delighted as the rest of their family that Niel had found true love. It was a very touching speech.
If you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue in Warwickshire, I can recommend you consider Warwick House for its fabulous decor, gorgeous gardens, and impeccable service. Congratulations Niel and Keran!
