Lynsey & James ~ New Hall Hotel


As the nights now draw in and the last of the leaves continue to fall, the end of our 2017 wedding season is in sight and on the 17th November it was Lynsey & James’s turn to tie the knot at Coleshill Parish Church before celebrating in style at the stunning New Hall Hotel.   We had fun from the very start, with the Bridal Prep at Lynsey & James’s home right through to First dance in the evening.  Lynsey was almost Vicar, Nick Parker’s, earliest Bride to arrive ever, giving us lots of lovely time to photograph her arrivals…. Until we realised she had left her bouquet at home 😉 However having said that she still made it back in time for us to capture some lovely moments with her Dad.  It was a lovely happy ceremony and even more special for the newly weds when it came time to sign the registers as her late Grandad had donated the signing table to the church as a memorial to his wife many years before.  Being the time of year it is the light fades super quick so we decided to photograph our groups in the grounds of the church before heading off to the venue for the drinks reception. You’ll find it hard to believe that their wedding was held in the middle of the winter by the stunning shots and although it was a beautiful day it was so very very cold!  Huge respect to Lynsey who braved the freezing chill of the wind for me to work my magic but boy it was worth it 🙂 This couple were such a pleasure to photograph and very easy to work with. Full of fun and laughter it really was a relaxed and heart warming day.  The speeches came later after their wedding breakfast held in the Great Chamber and as ordered the laughs were plenty with beautiful words from the Father of the Bride & James, and funny stories from his Bestman and Lynsey’s Grandad.   New Hall is lit up beautifully at night and having warmed up a little the happy couple were more than happy to brave the elements again for some night time photography.  Finally it was time to kick off the heels and have a good old knees up as Mr & Mrs Goode danced their first dance, friends and family joining them on the dance floor to boogie the night away.  It really had been a wonderful day, Thank you Lynsey & James for asking me to be a part of it 🙂  Here’s to a long and very happy future together ♥

Thank you to Spencer and all the Staff at New Hall for all their hard work, a pleasure as always 🙂
