I never imagined this St Mary’s Guildhall wedding was going to be SO GORGEOUS and brilliant. Sinéad and Matt absolutely brought their A Game, being superb all the way through.
Thinking back to when they first contacted me, I was amazed to see the things they had lined up. An underlying Pokémon theme, hints of classic Nintendo, lots of games, a completely relaxed vibe. And of course, the stunning venue St Mary’s Guildhall in Coventry, Warwickshire. I hadn’t heard of this venue before, but I was THRILLED to be shooting there once I had a look around. It’s gorgeous! The historical tapestries hanging on the interior walls were amazing. And having it placed right opposite Coventry Cathedral ruins means there’s a wealth of gorgeous history to view.
I confess I’m blogging this wedding in two parts. Sinéad and Matt had their wedding day ceremony at St Mary’s Guildhall, but had a Woodside wedding reception in Warwickshire. I want to give each of the venues their own little feature, so here we go. First up is the bridal prep at a family home where “Shin” shared a lot of laughs and giggles with her bridesmaids and “bridesman”. He was brilliant. I also loved the homemade celebration bunting and pompoms around the house. You’ll also see the first hints of the Nintendo games theme, including a Pokémon ring box – so cool. At the wedding reception, the geek gamers theme goes into full swing and is brilliantly done! There’s also Sinéad’s amazing brooch bouquet (brooch donations from family and friends). Check out the portraits inside St Mary’s Guildhall, too. It’s so lovely.
Hope you enjoy part one – part two will be on the blog soon!
