Joanna and Lewis’ beautiful winter wedding took place at the Swallows Nest Barn, located between Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick.

The day started off at Hallmark the Welcombe Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon. Having lived in Stratford before moving to Nottingham to go to university, it was nice to be back on my old stomping ground. The Welcombe was a stunning setting for the bridal preparations, with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. It was a beautiful place to get ready in. Joanna chose a show-stopping gown by Pronovious, with a stunning floor length veil to compliment the dress.

The ceremony took place at the Swallows Nest Barn, beautifully decorated with big flower installations by Penny Johnson Flowers. As the wedding took place just before Christmas, Joanna’s Dad arranged for his band to play some carols outside in the courtyard. Everyone joined in with singing and it was a special way to celebrate the day. We ended the evening with a sparkler exit, because, let’s face it, everyone loves sparklers!
