A great location for Lisa and Darren's Wedding last Saturday. Not perfect weather but the Warwickshire countryside made up for a cloudy and windy day. Its a long time since we provided for a Wedding at Ardencote Manor and never before to the nearby Claverdon Church. It was a lovely quiet country drive for Lisa and her Father from Coventry via Balsall Common and Shrewley to Church. Bridesmaids followed in family cars and despite our "regal" drive we arrived exactly on time for the marriage ceremony. It's never a good idea for Bride and Groom to arrive at the reception venue before guests (can be a little lonely) so following the ceremony we took a detour from Claverdon in the opposite direction along a little used lane. The couple and myself enjoyed country views that were a bit of a hidden secret as we were off the "beaten track". Eventually we made the grand entrance to the imposing Ardencote Manor to be met by family, friends and the couples photographer and with keen anticipation of the reception proceedings to follow.
