Dodford Manor Military Wedding Photography

Hannah & Craig, St. Mary the Virgin Church and Dodford Manor

I truly love being a UK military wedding photographer! It gives me the opportunity to shoot weddings at some of the countries best venues and locations.  Back in the autumn I traveled up to the very beautiful county of Northampton to second shoot once again with Phillip French at the incredible Dodford Manor.

Autumn is a photographers favourite part of the year, the red and golden colours of the leaves really make for some wonderful wedding photos!

As soon as I arrived at Dodford Manor to have a quick look around for photo locations I knew it was going to be a magical day as the venue is surrounded by some stunning views of the countryside and the woodlands bursting with the rich autumn colours.

The quick recce of the venue done, we headed over to a hotel nearby to photograph Hannah and her bridal party getting ready. On arrival, the champagne had already been opened and the girls were already busy getting their makeup done all dressed in their silk dressing gowns.

After lots of photos of the craziness of bridal preperation it was a race back to Dodford Manor in time for some photos of Craig waiting for the arrival of Hannah in the classic vintage car with her Dad.

St. Mary the Virgin is a beautiful Church just nestled back from Dodford Manor and is extremely picturesque. An intimate ceremony followed with some wonderful speeches and the usual I do's! A quick Guard of Honour outside then time for some confetti shots before taking the newly married couple off for some portraits in the surrounding Autumn woodlands.

Back to Dodford Manor for the reception, some brilliant natural and candid group shots and then an evening of entertainment, food and speeches followed by the newly married couples first dance.

Truly a beautiful wedding, a fantastic couple and I wish them the best of happiness in their marriage!
