Hotel Du Vin Wedding – Ruth & Gareth

We have been working with the fabulous luxury wedding venue Hotel Du Vin in the city centre of Birmingham for many years now, so we were really pleased to be asked to photograph Ruth and Gareth’s beautiful Jubilee Bank Holiday Wedding there.  As a wedding venue, Hotel Du Vin is great – it has an intimate feel to it, and has a really definite character.  We have always had such a warm welcome, and the staff are always attentive.

Ruth and Gareth’s wedding was on the Monday Bank Holiday on the Jubilee weekend, and the wedding really made a great weekend just a bit more special.  I met Ruth as she was getting ready with her friends and family, which gave me a chance to also get some shots of her gorgeous dress, and not forgetting of course the lovely Louboutin shoes.  I also like to make sure I am getting photos of the individual touches to their day, such as the flowers (who had been done by an friend of Ruth’s).  After the ceremony the guests went into the courtyard for drinks, and thankfully the dodgy weather held off so we were also able to venture out on to the city streets for some slightly different group shots as well, before spending some time in and around the hotel with just Ruth and Gareth to get photographs of just the two of them.

Here are some of the highlights from Ruth and Gareth’s Hotel Du Vin Wedding;

As a photographer, I genuinely enjoy the process of taking photos – the interaction, creativity and happy clients keep me enthusiastic and innovative. Many people find it awkward having their photograph taken – I use my experience to put people at ease so that I can get the most out of them, often in a short period of time.

Over the years I have been a professional photograph, I have won both regional and national awards, and I have been awarded an LMPA from the Master Photographers Association.
