Intimate Summer Wedding at Warwick House

I’ve long said there’s something fabulous about midweek weddings, and Rachel + Stuart’s wedding at Warwick House was certainly no exception!
Bringing together their closest friends and family for the wedding at Warwick House in Southam, Warwickshire the day was wonderfully relaxed from start to end. 

Rachel + Stuart first came to discuss their wedding plans back at the start of the year, and I just knew their day was going to be a blast to be part of. Stuart really is the life and soul of any occasion and just hilarious to be around! Such a fabulous couple, as evidently seen with the sheer number of friends who joined the night reception!

The wedding was the first time I had had the pleasure of working at Warwick House, and it really is a stunning setting. 
Unfortunately with the unpredictable British summer weather, the ceremony plans had to be brought indoors rather than being able to enjoy an outdoor ceremony, however, with such a stunning room this was hardly a problem!

Here’s a look at their day…just awesome!

After capturing the preparations of the bridal party in the fabulous hands of Gemma and Bryony I took a few minutes to explore Warwick House, capturing the guests arrivals and catching up with Stu and the boys getting ready in their suits from the fabulous Duncan James.

My coverage concluded early on the evening of Rachel + Stu’s wedding, so to bring their story to a close, I just had to make the most of the gorgeous bedroom windows on the front of the property…
