Iliffe Hotel Wedding Photography

Amy & Luke

We kicked off 2020 capturing this gorgeous couple’s big day. What made it even more special was it was exactly the same date when Luke plucked up the courage to ask Amy out.. how romantic! The Wedding was held at The Iliffe Hotel in Coventry, a recently rebranded Laura Ashley hotel. This boutique hotel is filled with Laura Ashley’s signature style with gorgeous interiors. It has been named after the family that this property was originally built for in the late 1890’s! On the morning of the Wedding, Amy got ready with her two lovely Bridesmaids in the  stunning Laura Ashley suite. Luke and his Groomsmen arrived early to ensure all of the finishing touches were completed, before relaxing in the bar.

As Amy stepped into her dress, she looked a million dollars… Before we knew it, guests arrived and took their seats in the ceremony room. With floor to ceiling windows, there is an abundance of natural light – perfect for photos! Luke was speechless when he saw Amy walking down the aisle. It was incredibly special watching these two lock eyes on one another. The ceremony was full of love and smiles and once the all important first kiss was had, the new Mr & Mrs Thompson proudly walked back past their guests to rapturous applause!

“Some things are meant to be… Take my hand… Take my whole life too”

The sun shone at this gorgeous winter wedding as we explored the grounds with Luke & Amy for their photos. These two were great and we had lots of laughs! Guests enjoyed a drinks reception before being invited into the Wedding breakfast. With quirky maps, compasses and personalised sweet jars – the tables looked incredible! The speeches involved a huge projector (Luke was particularly nervous about what was to come!) and had the guests in stitches!

As evening guests arrived, the newly weds had their first dance to Bely Basarte’s amazing version of ‘I can’t help falling in love with you’. The party truly got going with the Groomsmen certainly throwing the best shapes! We even managed to grab some quirky evening shots outside before leaving Luke & Amy to dance the night away!

Here’s to a marriage full of love and happiness!
