Worcestershire Wedding Photographer | A Coddington Vineyard Wedding
Coddington Vineyard is a working vineyard and a new to the scene wedding and events venue tucked away in the Malverns on the Worcestershire and Herefordshire border. It’s really quite special, with the vineyard and beautiful gardens creating a perfect backdrop for either a lakeside ceremony or outdoor drinks reception. For the evening meal and dancing, there’s a barn with many original features, and space to set up a marquee or tent too. Tim and Ellie chose to get married at Coddington Vineyard in mid-October, and thankfully the worst of Storm Callum held off long enough for both their ceremony and drinks reception to be held outside as planned.
The lakeside ceremony tent. Marriage laws in England require that a few lines and the register itself be said and signed under a permanent structure. Many wedding venues achieve this by having a little pagoda or folly registered for ceremonies. Tim and Ellie’s registrar was happy for the main ceremony to be held outdoors under the tent pictured above, and then for Tim, Ellie and their witnesses to step inside the barn to complete the formalities before returning for the close of the ceremony. It worked perfectly.
The barn all set up on the morning of the wedding. I really loved how atmospheric it was in there with the wind blowing outside and all the lights making it feel extra cosy and inviting.

Today I’m sharing the wedding videography highlights and feature film from a PapaKåta teepee wedding which took place back in September. Clare and Eman’s wedding has also been featured over on Rock my Wedding (April 2018). Their ceremony was held at OLEM in central Cambridge, and was followed by a reception in a PapaKåta teepee at Clare’s parents’ home. I absolutely love teepee weddings, sperry tent weddings and all things outdoors, so if you’re getting married and planning an outdoor reception, get in touch! I’d love to film for you
Clare and Eman’s ceremony was set for the early afternoon slot at OLEM in central Cambridge. As such, Ed and I arrived earlier than we normally would to film morning preparations at Clare’s parents’ home where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready and the reception was set to take place.
Today I’m sharing the wedding videography highlights from Aimee and Matthew’s relaxed, countryside barn wedding which they held at Springhill Barn in Worcestershire back at the start of September. As always, I’ve included some still frames from their wedding films so have a scroll through for some inspiration if you’re planning your own autumn wedding in Worcestershire. Do get in touch to find out more about having me film for your wedding for you, I’d love to chat weddings with you!

Aimee and Matthew’s wedding took place deep in the Worcestershire countryside in the village of Fladbury. Their ceremony was held at St John the Baptist church, a beautiful Anglican church in the heart of the village, and followed by a reception up the road at Springhill Barn. Springhill itself is a fantastic venue for a laidback country wedding. The owners are really friendly and helpful, and kindly welcomed us when we arrived early in the morning to scout the venue before filming morning preparations.
The lakeside location makes for some spectacular photos, and the barn itself, lovingly restored by owner Jonathan and his family is the perfect backdrop for a wedding reception. There are so many places to take photos and film, from little bridges across the river, to the glasshouse by the main house and all of the old farm buildings with crumbling paintwork. Inside, the old wooden beams covered with string lights looked fantastic, and made the barn feel extra cozy and welcoming on what was quite a wet and overcast early September day.
