Woodland wedding for Bonnie & Richard
It was a pleasure to cover Bonnie & Richards wedding at St.Nicholas Church in Elmdon Park, Solihull. If you don’t know Elmdon Park its a fabulous park right next to the Land Rover factory in Solihull although when you are there you would never know. St.Nicholas Church is set right on the edge of the woodland in the park giving it a really lovely feel. I met Richard and “The Lads in Suits” as they arrived at the church and I must say Richard was very relaxed! Shortly after Bonnie arrived running only a few minutes fashionably late. After a great ceremony we walked straight over to the main grassed area on the park giving us a great backdrop and somewhere for everyone to congratulate Bonnie & Richard. Before leaving for the reception venue we had to have some portraits in the woodland. Thanks to Bonnie for carefull picking her way down the small paths through the trees!
The reception was at the Henley Golf & Country Club, Henley-in-Arden where they really looked after everyone. One of the best places for photos at the golf club just happens to be in the middle of the course so the management had already arranged when we arrived for Bonnie & Richard to have a golf buggy and follow us through the course to a small “oasis”. I think it was a highlight of Richards day as he sped along driving the cart over the greens! The room for the wedding breakfast was all decorated with shells and the tables where all named after beeches in Australia a place I know Bonnie & Richard are thinking of moving to. In all a great day that really reflected Bonnie & Richard personality. A great day.
Congratulations and all the best to you both where ever you end up here or in Oz, if you need anything just let me know. Don’t be strangers, Oz is only an email away
