Brinsop Court Wedding Photography – Ellie & Pete
It was way back in June last year that shot the delightful Brinsop Court Wedding Photography of Pete and Ellie up at Brinsop Court.
According to Wikipedia; “Brinsop Court is a romantic Grade I listed English country manor house located in the village of Brinsop, Herefordshire, England.
Dating back to the early fourteenth century, Brinsop Court is filled with excellent period features including large fireplaces, ornate ceilings and wooden panelling.
The house, with medieval foundations, is surrounded by lawns, encircled by a moat and nestled within a private 800-acre estate.
With a long history and Royal connections, this house has been occupied by a succession of noble families and celebrities.
After an extensive refurbishment, Brinsop Court is now primarily an exclusive wedding venue available for weekday or weekend celebrations and is owned by a local Herefordshire family.”
And it is a real delight to photograph.

The stills follow below.
I started my day at the lovely Ivy Cottage, on the grounds of Brinsop Court for a short bridal prep segment of the day.
Ellie and her sister were busy getting ready as I headed out into the glorious sunshine and the short drive to the equally as beautiful, St. George’s Church nearby.
Here Pete was busy sorting out his tie and the last minute preparations before Ellie and the rest of her family arrived.
Brinsop Court Wedding Photography – The Wedding Ceremony:
I have to say, shooting this Brinsop Court wedding photography was such a lovely day, in part, because of the ceremony at St. George’s.
I always introduce myself to the vicars and priests at church weddings and totally respect their rules of the house.
Sadly, not all wedding photographers do, and that gives us a rather more difficult time.
In this case, the vicar was an absolute delight and I feel she had a very big part to play in the ceremony – even handing the newlyweds a pack of Jelly Babies to help on their new journey together.
It was lovely to see.
It was an emotional ceremony, and I feel I’m in a privileged position to see many of the moments that others don’t.
For example, dad about to hand Ellie over is a very touching moment and it’s my duty to record this cautiously and sympathetically.
I want to curate this memory for the family, but I certainly don’t want to spoil it by photographing 50 frames and “hoping for the best”.
I feel that these precious moments need to occur naturally, and within the context of the day, not within the parameters of the photographer’s requirements.
I just wanted to say thank you for being so lovely at our wedding on the 21st. I barely noticed you!
And you have achieved high praise from my mother(a Vicar who has had a few errant photographers in her time) who although she wasn’t conducting the ceremony thought you were wonderfully discrete and barely saw you either.
She doesn’t often praise wedding photographers I can tell you!
Brinsop Court Wedding Photography – The Speeches
Once we were back at Brinsop Court, the weather remains incredible.
This was conducive to some funny, yet emotional speeches out on the lawn of this amazing Herefordshire Wedding Venue.
I’ll leave you with a small selection of the rest of my favourites from this small wedding.
I do hope you like them and remember, if you want to watch the Photofilm, it’s at the top of this blog post.
