Liz and Rup at Alcott Weddings… a truly special day in Worcestershire.

Just over 2 moths ago we saw the fabulous wedding of Liz & Rup’s. They chose the traditional classic stunning white marquee and they had incredible Indian drummers that opened up the Olympic Ceremony in London. They were very happy with their choice of caterers and even though it was a slightly rainy day in did not dampen the moods at all! This can be seen in the incredible pictures below by John Colson Photography. I am loving the fancy pink welly boots worn by the bride!! John has also written a stunning blog about their day, please read on…….


What a wedding day this was!! Both Libby (videographer) and myself left Liz and Rup’s Worcestershire Wedding at the end of a very long day with the biggest smiles on our faces you could imagine.  The day started at No.115 Hair Lounge where I met with Liz and her Bridesmaids for a few Bridal prep shots before moving onto St. Georges in Kidderminster to meet up with Rup. I have driven past St. Georges countless times now as it is my local church, but this was the first time I had been inside.. and what a wonderful church is was… light and airy (which was a godsend considering the weather on the day… yes, it was rainy and dark again) with loads of room to move about a bit.

Once married, Liz and Rup made their way over to gorgeous Alcott Weddings to celebrate. Sadly it was still chucking it down so we didn’t get much opportunity to get outside and enjoy the lovely surroundings for a good part of the day. However, as these things have a way of doing, after the speeches were done and we had shot a few formal group photos in the Marquee, the rain stopped and we were able to get outside to enjoy some magnificent Worcestershire light!

And then, if the miraculous change in the weather wasn’t enough, Liz and Rup surprised their guests with an hour or so of the most amazing Indian drumming from the fellas at Modus. I really can’t tell you just how good these guys were. Not only didn’t they play ‘solo’, but they also played along with the music being played by the DJ… it was nothing short of sensational and left us with the most amazing buzz when we left.

I should give another shout out to Libby Blunt. It was lovely seeing and working with her again. Sometimes Photographers and Videographers can get in one anothers way, but working with Libby is delight. Please do check out her work if you are looking for a videographer.

Thank you so much to Liz and Rup. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know them over the past few months. You would be hard pressed to find a more lovely couple. Here are a few of their images:
