Fran and Dave’s wedding photography at Dodmoor House in Northamptonshire. Dodmoor House is a very popular venue for weddings in Weedon, Northamptonshire. It is based around two stone barns with a courtyard. The wedding ceremony takes place in one of the barns and the wedding breakfast in the other. I’m based about 40 minutes from Dodmoor House which makes it one of my local venues.
Fran and Dave’s wedding was in December, a month I am finding more and more popular for weddings. There is no longer a wedding season as such and I am kept busy all year round. A venue like Dodmoor House is ideal for winter weddings as everything is in one place, Fran got ready in the bridal suite opposite the barn for the ceremony.
I arrived at midday to photograph the preparations before the 3pm wedding ceremony, things run a little late and the ceremony started at 3.30pm as the sun was setting casting golden light through the back windows of the Courtyard Barn at Dodmoor House. All too soon the light had gone and I made some lovely photographs as darkness fell, using the patio heaters as a light source to take photographs of the guests during the drinks reception. I really enjoy winter weddings and find they make fantastic photographs with candles and low light levels adding to the atmosphere.
The wedding breakfast was in the candlelit Catesby Barn, which had been decorated with paper lanterns and large star lights. Speeches took place after dinner and then Fran and Dave cut their Profiterole cake which was decorated with heart shaped sparklers. My coverage ended with the first dance.
