Compton Verney wedding photography on the blog today, featuring Megan & Thomas.
Compton Verney is a stunning wedding venue in Warwickshire, West Midlands. When Megan & Thomas shared the details of their amazing wedding location, I was so excited! A renowned Art Gallery housed within a Grade I listed building, Compton Verney encompasses a hundred acres of gloriously photogenic parkland with an elegant bridge, imposing courtyard and pillared portico guaranteed to astonish vistors. It also had swans. Lots of swans.

A Luxury West Midlands Wedding Venue
Our bride Megan prepared for her wedding day with her Mum and bridesmaids at the George Townhouse in nearby Shipston-On-Stour. It was wonderful seeing the bridesmaids opening Megan’s thoughtful gifts & letters; a few happy tears were shed! Megan wore a beautiful Maggie Sottero wedding dress. After bridal preparations, it was off to Compton Verney to meet Thomas and the groomsmen. I’d never been to this wedding venue before but I was keen to see if it lived up to the hype; spoiler alert- it so did!
Imagine the scene. Sweeping up the long driveway, over a bridge to the classic courtyard before finally making a dramatic entrance to the Adam Hall beneath formal Baroque pillars. Such a unique venue and one I was so happy to be photographing. As I’m based up in the North West it’s always fun and interesting to travel to other counties to shoot my work, and this West Midlands wedding venue was an absolute gem.
Megan arrived at the art gallery by Mini, a quintessentially British car for a classic British wedding venue. There’s no finer way to arrive!
Following the ceremony (which proceeded without a hitch, always a bonus), the bride & groom and their wedding party strolled through the grounds to reach Compton Verney’s newly restored chapel & the newlyweds received a blessing. The chapel is another beautiful building, the all-white interior really photogenic. It was also a great opportunity for confetti!
It was then back to the Adam Hall for the wedding breakfast & speeches- the atmosphere was fantastic – lots of fun and celebrating through to the evening before snatching a few minutes in that amazing sunset. Megan actually works in television so knows the importance of great light, and that golden sunset was not to be missed.
Once it got dark I even got to do a bit of off-camera flash using my new Sony A9 under those cool pillars.
I hope you enjoy this small selection of images from the wedding. It was a real privilege to visit Compton Verney for the first time, and what a wonderful wedding to showcase on the blog today. Thanks for looking!
