I must admit I had never heard of this venue before, even though I live no more than 5 miles from Weston under Wetherley and have done so most of my life, I thought I had cycled around all of the area so was quite shocked when I was asked to capture Gemma & Matt’s wedding at Wethele Manor.
I quickly googled it, and before the wedding, visited to take a look, I was amazed at this exclusive wedding venue. I read that the farm was originally built in the 16th century but had only recently been refurbished and redeveloped into a wedding venue and what a top job the owners have done. The courtyard, where ceremonies can take place all through the summer, is stunning; as is the barn which offers a wet weather option. The marquee can be fully opened on 3 sides so it does not get too warm and you get the festival English countryside feel to your wedding breakfast.
From a videographers point of view it has everything I would need, the farm is set in 250 acres so there are lots of places to use for those intimate shots of the Bride & Groom as well as the house offering a great backdrop to both photos and film. There is plenty of light and space in the inside areas so even in wet weather it is an idyllic setting.
I was definitely impressed and loved the way the footage I took of Gemma & Matt’s wedding turned out. Why don’t you take a look below!
