I always love returning to be a Brinsop Court Wedding Photographer. Isabel and Samuel chose the perfect venue for their autumn wedding. This 14th century manor house is encircled by a moat (Yes, a moat no less!) and nestled in 800 acres of Herefordshire farmland and countryside that make the most beautiful backdrops in my images when I capture Brinsop Court wedding photography.
But, I’ll get on to all the reasons why I love capturing wedding photography at Brinsop Court later. Let’s start at the beginning of Isabel and Samuel’s day.
On the day, I got there early to catch up with Isabel who was getting ready in Brinsop’s beautiful bridal suite The French Room. She was in the safe and capable hands of her bridal party and her make-up artist and hairstylist. There was a fizz of excitement and a little fizz to drink as everybody got ready and I got some lovely images.
I then caught up with Samuel and his grooms party who were getting ready in another suite within Brinsop Court. The boys were in high spirits and looked very smart in their traditional tails’ suits. I got some great images of them making the short walk through the village to St George’s Church for the ceremony.
Experienced Brinsop Court wedding photographer
Isabel looked stunning in a strapless dress with a gorgeous A-line skirt that fanned out into a train at the back giving her a gorgeous silhouette. Her hair had been styled into a loose up do and she had a gorgeous bouquet of white flowers. I got some fantastic images of her before we left for the church.
Grade I St George’s Church in the village of Brinsop is featured in Simon Jenkins’ famous book ‘England’s Thousand Best Churches’. This small church dates back to the 13th century and has a rich history and contains many fascinating artefacts.
Isabel’s bridesmaid wore beautiful blush dresses with glamorous white shrugs and her mum looked lovely in blush as well. Isabel followed being walked down the aisle by her dad. I captured the ceremony making the very most of the light from those gorgeous stain glass windows.
After a lovely ceremony, everybody headed outside for a fun confetti moment, before heading over to Brinsop Court to start the celebrations.
Storytelling wedding photography at Brinsop Court
Weather on the day was cloudy but the rain held off so I was able to get some great images of the wedding party in the beautiful gardens at Brinsop. Indoors everybody a drinks reception and I took the chance to get some lovely candid images of guests just happily mingling and taking in their beautiful surroundings.
With guests happily catered for, I quickly whisked Isabel and Samuel away for a few minutes for a romantic photoshoot around the grounds of Brinsop Court. These guys were a joy to work with and I loved the images I got of them on the bridge over the lily pond and in front of the bright red winter flowers.
The wedding breakfast was held in The Knot Barn, this traditionally built oak barn with a feature bar and magical views over the landscaped gardens and Herefordshire countryside, was new for 2020 and is simply awesome.
The Knot Barn looked magnificent all dressed and ready for the meal. Now, as a busy Hereford wedding photographer, I’ve seen a lot of couples welcomed into their wedding breakfast but Isabel and Samuel’s guests topped the lot! They cheered and waved their napkins in the air. The energy and love in the room was electric. There followed some very well speeches and a sumptuous wedding breakfast.
Evening celebrations started with a romantic first dance for Isabel and Samuel on a gorgeous LED lit dancefloor which coupled with the strings of fairy lights across the oak beamed ceiling created a magical vibe perfect for an evening party. And with the amazing live band Orland Park performing, the dancefloor remained full. Isabel and Samuel’s guests were definitely up for a party and I bravely entered the dancefloor to get some really fun shots.
Wedding fireworks at Brinsop Court
I love wedding fireworks and I especially love Brinsop Court wedding fireworks because they do it so well. The climax of the night was a gorgeous sparkler serenade for Isabel and Samuel and I got a perfect sparkler shot. This was followed by an impressive fireworks display (Well, it was 5th November!)
Fireworks at weddings make for amazing images and bring an extra zing of excitement to weddings just at the point when you think all the wedding surprises are done. At Isabel and Samuel’s wedding, the fireworks gave me the perfect image to close the story of their gorgeous wedding day.
I loved capturing Isabel and Samuel’s wedding photography at Brinsop Court. A fun wedding at a stunning location. Congratulations guys and thanks for having me there. I hope my images will allow you to relive your wedding day again and again for many years to come.
