I love capturing moments like this. During the groom's speech, Jamie made reference to his beautiful wife's mum that immediately bought a tear to her eye. Jamie picked up on this straight away and moved in to put a comforting hand upon her shoulder.
Weddings are all about emotions and capturing them is insanely important to me. During a typical wedding day of 14 hours from bridal preparations through to the partying in the evening, I'm always looking for these moments that are over as quickly as they began.
Of course one of the best parts of this photograph is the little girl in the background who quite clearly has her own agenda...
About Hampton Manor.
In the heart of England your table is laid, ready for you to gather together the people who matter most. 45 acres of woodland, a daffodil dell and walled kitchen garden envelope this Neo-Tudor Gothic house. Just down the garden path lies the sleepy village of Hampton-in-Arden, a 15-minute train journey into Birmingham, and one hour from London.
Inside, the family owners have paid homage to the Manor’s Arts and Crafts history. Floors are lined with original Minton tiles, hand-painted stained glass sits in the windows, and hand-carved oak bannisters wind their way up to the bedrooms bedecked in William Morris prints. But Creative Director Fjona has made the Manor a home away from home, pairing its historic features with sink-into-sofas, reading corners, and contemporary geometric patterns.
Food and drink is our main event, with menus inspired by our Michelin-starred, four AA-rosette awarded restaurant, Peel’s. Your wedding breakfast includes the best, locally sourced produce, cooked using modern techniques. Meanwhile, our Wine Director and Sommelier introduce you to natural and organic wines that evoke a sense of the vineyard and, most importantly, taste great!
It’s rare that a Restaurant with Rooms has the space to seat 120 guests. The Courtyard was once the turning place for coaches. Today you can still see the grooves where the horses’ wheels scraped the stone walls, and spot the clock-tower overhead, but the space has been transformed into a bright and contemporary atrium, set to melt the hearts of your friends and family.
We know that it’s the atmosphere that will make your day one your guests will never forget. That’s why we’ve made serving you our craft. Our house was built for throwing your perfect party
