This year, the first three weekends of July were spent photographing weddings exclusively at Lemore Manor in Herefordshire.... one of my very favourite wedding venues in the country.
The first weekend was a meet up and 'pre wedding shoot' with Cameron and Rachel, followed by Lianne and Lawrence's wedding the next week. Cameron and Rachel's wedding the week after rounded off a fantastic few weeks.
Rather than share both days individually, I thought I would do something a little different and share a few images from both days, whilst talking about the many changes that have been made to Lemore since my last visit.
Margaret and Ben (Lemore's owners) have added a new Orangery which is perfect for the wedding breakfast element of any day. It's a great room with lovely light.. perfect for capturing images of the speeches. They have also completed a massive redevelopment of what was a small residential area to the rear of the house into a perfect space for indoor ceremonies ... the 'Coach House' (you can get married outside at Lemore as well... weather permitting of course). Probably my favourite addition is the 'Hen House' which, whilst a bit restrictive for photos in terms of light, is a lovely spot for Bridal preparations.
Both weddings were wonderful occasions to be a part of, not least because of the wonderful welcome I always receive from everyone at Lemore. I really can't speak highly enough of this fantastic venue. To learn a little more, check out their website here.
Here are a few images from Lianne and Lawrence and Cameron and Rachel's big days...
