Wedding Photography

Hello! My name is Eva and I am a professional wedding photographer based in Solihull, Birmingham. I specialize in capturing candid, natural moments during weddings in the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, and Oxfordshire. My goal is to provide you with a unique and personal wedding experience and to create timeless images that transport you back to the emotions of your special day. I believe that photography has the power to truly capture the beauty and emotion of your wedding day.

Wedding Preparations

The bride was getting ready surrounded by her family in the home where she grew up. Laughter and excitement filled the room as they styled her hair and applied her makeup. The bouquet that the florist delivered was absolutely beautiful. It was a stunning arrangement of wildflowers, perfectly fitting for the boho-inspired wedding. The bridesmaids were all happy and excited, dressed in matching robes. The dress that the bride had chosen was a stunning boho-inspired gown with an open back. It fit her perfectly. Meanwhile, the groom was at the church welcoming guests and making sure everything goes as planned.

Wedding Ceremony and Drinks Reception

Finally, the time had come. The bride walked down the aisle, arm in arm with her father, and met her groom at the altar. They exchanged vows and became husband and wife. It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony and the start of a new chapter in their lives. The beautiful Oxleaze Barn courtyard provided the perfect setting for the drinks reception, especially for a summer wedding filled with guests from all around the globe.

The bride and groom took a stroll around the beautiful grounds of the estate as I captured their intimate and romantic moments on camera. The sun was shining on this perfect summer day, making for the perfect lighting for their wedding portraits. The relaxed and intimate atmosphere made it easy for the couple to let their guard down and fully enjoy the moment.

Wedding Breakfast and Speeches

The wedding breakfast was held in the main barn, decorated with beautiful flowers, creating a romantic and intimate atmosphere. The guests sat at long tables adorned with delicate table settings, ready to welcome the freshly married couple and enjoy a delicious meal. The speeches were heartfelt and emotional, with the newlyweds, the parents, and the best man all taking turns to share their thoughts and memories.

Cake Cutting, First Dance, and Wedding Party

After the bride and groom cut the cake, they made their way to the dancefloor where they shared their first dance as a married couple. After the first dance, the guests quickly joined the newlyweds on the dance floor. The sight of all the wedding guests on the dance floor, fully enjoying themselves, left a lasting impression on me. The combination of the DJ’s spectacular lighting and expertly crafted playlist helped transform the entire room into a great party.
