Wedding Photographer Arrow Mill Alcester: Ayaka & Jason
While working on an assignment for a well known car manufacturer in Japan, Jason met a beautiful and bubbly hairdresser by the name of Ayaka. He was immediately drawn to her lively, positive character and not before long love blossomed and Ayaka came back to live in the UK with Jason. When the best man was recounting this beautiful love story there was hardly a dry eye in the house – as you’ll see! Beautiful. Ayaka’s parents’ English is a little limited so the father of the bride’s speech was translated into English after every sentence!
The day begain at Jason’s parents where Ayaka and her friends were getting ready. After some relaxed shots of everyone getting ready we headed to the church – St Patrick’s Earlswood, a beautiful church set in beautiful rural Warwickshire. After the church service the reception was held at Arrow Mill in Alcester. Arrow Mill was a working flour mill for over a thousand years. It is situated across the road from Ragley Hall and used to be part of the Ragley Estate. It’s brimmed full of character evident in the low ceilings, the oak beams to the copper pans to name a few examples. It really does make a for a wonderful wedding venue. The grounds and surrounding farmland is stunning – have a look at Ayaka and Jason’s pre wedding shoot I photographed a little while ago. I was blessed with the most glorious weather imaginable – so lucky. The evening skies were out of this world as you’ll see.
It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to photograph this wedding. Enjoy the photographs…
The picture below didn’t quite turn out as I intended! It wasn’t until I started the editing I realised I had inadvertently given Ayaka a hat! I quite like it though! Add a comment and let me know what you think!
“Thanks for the photos!! They look great and we’re really pleased! Thank you so much for your hard work – so happy to have found you!” Ayaka & Jason
