relaxed outdoor weddings in the midlands

An autumn wedding at Copdock Hall by Sam & Louise photography

Autumn can be pretty hit or miss when it comes to the weather. You can plan your wedding for the Autumn months and find yourselves presented with literally anything from glorious sunshine to snow. Sometimes you get it all in one day! Fortunately, Steph & Drew totally lucked out and had the most superb day for their celebration at Copdock Hall.

A beautiful sunny morning led to a warm afternoon and a pleasant evening. This meant that celebrations were enjoyed outdoors all day! Virtually unheard of past September! We couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect, Especially at a venue as lovely as Copdock Hall.

Vinyards at Copdock Hall

With such pretty colour in the trees, the vineyards really  came into their own. A sea of colour greeted us for S&D’s couple photos. And even if they felt mega awkward, they certainly hid it well behind smiles and laughter. It was lovely working with these two, who were so relaxed and easygoing  all day.

Soon enough the intimate church ceremony became canapés, which became speeches, which became cartwheels and handstands on the dance floor (Ollie, i’m looking at you here!) We were surrounded by a thoroughly lovely bunch of people all day! We can’t thank everyone enough for their kindness and for welcoming us with open arms.

Anyway, here is a very small preview of their wonderful wedding. There’ll be lots more photos coming soon!

Steph and Drew will be heading off on their honeymoon soon, so please feel free to leave your comments and congratulations for them at the end of this post.  You can also keep up with us and our work over on social media if you’d like
