I love this venue so much It’s now listed amongst my list of Best Wedding Venues in the West Midlands.

I’ve enjoyed shooting both outdoors and humanist Bodenham Arboretum wedding celebrations. If you’re looking for a humanist celebrant, I have a few I can recommend for you.

Shooting outdoors weddings is naturally at the mercy of the elements, but when the weather is in a good mood, your guests can enjoy the the natural surroundings and extensive grounds, which provides the perfect backdrop for your casual, informal wedding photos.

Even if the weather is inclement, don’t let that put you off, celebrating your love for each other. Make sure everyone has umbrellas and embrace the day!

With so much space available to walkabout and explore during your casual portrait session, each wedding has always provided a different, unique and bespoke record of the day.
