Ettington Park Hotel Wedding


Ettington Park Hotel Wedding. We had the pleasure of photographing Alan & Echo’s outdoor wedding on the stunning grounds of Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

The bride and groom opted for an intimate breakfast before the ceremony, breaking tradition to share a quiet moment together. This allowed us, the photographers, to capture some beautiful footage.


The ceremony took place in the exquisite Orangery of Ettington Park Hotel, surrounded by the lush greenery of Victorian gardens. The bride made a grand entrance, arriving in a horse-drawn carriage accompanied by her parents and bridesmaids. With both of us photographing the day, we were able to capture the arrival of the bridal party and the groom’s reaction from two different angles. The ceremony was accompanied by beautiful, soft harp music and readings from family and friends.
Following the ceremony, the bride and groom enjoyed a short ride in the horse-drawn carriage while guests wandered through the beautiful gardens before gathering again for group photos and the wedding breakfast.

A special guest at the wedding was the couple’s dog, Bruce, whose playful presence brought joy to everyone, especially the children who played with him on the grass lawn all afternoon. Needless to say, Bruce provided numerous photo opportunities for us.

Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception

The wedding breakfast took place in the Library of Ettington Park Hotel. Capturing a photo of everyone was the last task before the wedding breakfast. We managed to do so just before the skies opened, though guests had to run to escape the rain.

In the evening, the married couple opened the dancefloor after the traditional cake cutting. The guests had a fantastic time before concluding the day, waving the couple away with a sparkler exit.
