First on the agenda was to meet up with Becky at the Village Hotel in Coventry for bridal prep. ‘Team Bride’ were having a great time in their matching gowns as make up artist and hairdresser were on hand to help them with their final preparations. It was soon time for Becky’s father to take to the wheel of a lovely classic mini to drive Becky over to St Mary’s Guildhall where Alex, family and friends had gathered for the ceremony.
St Mary’s Guildhall is considered to be one of the finest remaining medieval guildhalls in the country. Inside the Guildhall, the interior architecture made a stunning setting for Becky, Alex and their guests to enjoy the ceremony.
Becky and Alex wanted a very relaxed day so after the ceremony a few family photos were taken in the courtyard of the Guildhall before we made our way over to the old Coventry Cathedral. The Cathedral was bombed in WWII and the ruins made a unique backdrop for Becky and Alex’s portraits. Becky and Alex then had a chance to take a walk up historical Bayley Lane, before joining up with their guests in The Undercroft for a drinks reception.
It was then time to head into the Guildhall for the wedding breakfast. Inside the Hall with its wonderful wooden carved ceiling, beautiful stained glass windows, everyone enjoyed the breakfast and entertaining speeches including one from Becky and her Maid of Honour.
After cake cutting everyone gathered back out in the courtyard for sparklers before returning into the Guildhall to enjoy the evening entertainment. I just had chance to whisk Becky and Alex away for a few evening shots before leaving them to continue their celebrations with their guests.
