Many people wouldn’t consider a January wedding, assuming it will be bleak, but our January winter days can result in gorgeous low sunshine or even snow – so that combined with generally lower fees all round and it’s a great idea. Everyone feels a bit low in January, but everyone loves a wedding to look forward to! This was also our first wedding as a married couple ourselves, so it was a little bit special too.
We were so happy to hear from Charlotte and Neil, and Lina and Charlotte went to school together, so it was lovely to be asked to capture their special day. Having not yet captured a Dodmoor House wedding, we loved the the venue when we went and took a look for Charlotte and Neil’s pre wedding shoot. On the day the sun shone brightly, and there was a great feeling of excitement in both the boy’s and girl’s camp at the Daventry Court Hotel.
Charlotte and Neil went for a fantastically bright colour scheme reminiscent of tutti fruiti sweets – so thankfully there were some on hand! Here’s a selection from their gorgeously vibrant day with some fantastic details – including a Minion groom’s cake! We really enjoyed working with the team at Dodmoor House and hope to return another time, and we wish Charlotte and Neil nothing but a lifetime of love and laughter. Credits at the end…
