Wedding season – summer

Venue – The Cotford Hotel

As West Midlands Wedding Photographers, we often get enquiries and then bookings on line, which was the case for Georgina and Mike. The couple live in London; however, they had chosen to ‘tie the knot’ in Malvern where Georgina’s parents live. We also had the chance to meet them prior to their wedding at their engagement shoot in London.

The venue of their choice was The Cotford Hotel & Restaurant in Malvern Worcestershire, which features Gothic Victorian Architecture, luxurious hotel rooms and stunning landscaped gardens, the wedding ceremony took place at Great Malvern Priory.

The morning arrived and we split up to take photographs of the bride and grooms wedding preparations, our style is documentary photography and we like to capture all those special moments from first thing in the morning to the end of the evening. Georgina was at her parents’ home and Mike at The Cotford Hotel. Soon it was time to make their way to the Priory for the ceremony with Mike and his groomsmen arriving in a very cool vintage MG and Georgina in a sleek Daimler 250.

Afterwards, the wedding party, friends and guests made their way to The Cotford Hotel for the drinks reception, whilst we stole the newlyweds away for a quick photoshoot in Priory Park (Malvern). There were more photo’s to be taken when we returned to the venue for family and group shots.

The marquee at The Cotford Hotel is magnificent, which was where the wedding breakfast was held and speeches given, celebrations continued into the evening in the beautiful gardens where guests relaxed and enjoyed more drinks. Soon it was time for the first dance with Georgina and Mike taking to the floor closely followed by the rest of the party, what a fantastic time was had by all!
