Organising wedding party may be a very hard and time consuming task for couples who decided to spend the rest of their life together. Yes, the whole process is very exciting, especially for brides, usually they are planning the big day before they even meet that one and only… From experience gained working as Birmingham Wedding Photographer I know that to plan everything, book all the services, flowers, catering, band or DJ and obviously best wedding photographer is not an easy job.
One of the most important decisions engaged couples have to make is choosing the venue for their wedding reception. And believe me this choice affects the whole final appearance of the day. For example, the perfect place must be nice and romantic, full of antique furniture and that unique vintage atmosphere. But at the same time it has to be safe and comfortable for wedding guests. Couples definitely don’t want to live their family and friends with a feeling of distaste about the chosen venue and wedding itself.
I hope it would not be tactless to mention that a venue has also huge impact on the final look of a wedding photo album. Places with plenty of windows and natural light would work best. High ceilings and bride walls are great for colours on photographs. If those conditions are meet you may stay assured that a skilled photographer will be able to capture wonderful moments of your big day and present them beautifully.

There are outdoor as well as indoor locations, city centre and country side, and I hope my selection will help you to make the right choice for your best wedding venue Birmingham.

At 800 years old, New Hall Hotel & Spa in the West Midlands has a long history of providing discerning guests fine hospitality and would be a great choice for more exclusive wedding venue. It is offering 26 acres of elegant grounds and is widely reputed to be the oldest inhabited, moated manor house in England and the most perfect of wedding venues in Birmingham. You can find here very flexible wedding packages, exclusive use and luxurious pre-wedding spa treatments and time to time they organise open days & evenings where the hotel is prepared as it would be for a wedding party.
I am sure that New Hall Spa in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham would impress you with it’s elegance and noble style. It is a proposition which definitely had to have it’s place in my selection of Birmingham wedding venues.
The Hotel is a four star country house in Sutton Coldfield, set in beautiful parkland yet within easy reach of Birmingham, the NEC Group/LG Arena and the major rail and motorway links. Beautiful grounds and sunken garden provide a unique and picturesque backdrop for your wedding photographs, which are, of course the permanent reminder of a very special day. Again, the place has that traditional feeling with lots of history behind. fact that there is a choice of two restaurants, seven conference rooms and extensive leisure facilities including an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room, aerobics room and spa with three treatment rooms makes the venue a real relaxing centre for newlyweds. I have never yet shoot in there but hope to have a chance in the near future.
For the last proposition on my list I have chosen the venue I was shooting in one of my most enjoyable weddings ever. The place is peaceful and naturally beautiful. Their huge 550 acres of breathtaking English countryside offers perfect romantic backdrop for couples looking to situate their wedding in one of the most relaxing venues in Birmingham.
The hotel invested £26 million for major refurbishment and you can’t miss what impact the fact had on the general appearance of this incredible place. Marvellous interiors dazzle with their beauty and surrounding magical grounds makes you feel like standing in the heart of a wonderland. The Belfry Hotel is perfect choice for those who may prefer mix of stunning nature and luxury.
