Nicola and James enjoyed a beautiful Shottle Hall wedding reception after they married at St Edmond’s Church in Allestree, Derbyshire.
I joined Nicola at her parents home to capture the later stages of her and the girls getting ready. The weather was so nice that Nicola enjoyed having make up done outside in her parents pretty garden. Meanwhile our second photographer wayne went to meet up with James and the guys at the holiday cottage they were staying in at Darley Abbey.
Nicola looked stunning and after some photographs on the lawn we all made the short walk to church from the house. It was a beautiful ceremony on this rare English sunny day. We then all spilled out of Allestree church and James and Nicola were congratulated by their guests and enjoyed a wave off in the vintage car as they headed off for their Shottle Hall wedding reception.
We captured a few group photographs and some time with Nicola and James as guests enjoyed drinks outside on the grass. Shottle Hall really makes for a perfect Derbyshire wedding venue – we love it here!
The reception room looked stunning with chair covers by Cakey Wakey and flowers on the tables by The Greenery, who also made the bouquets. The speeches made for a giggle and a tear, then it was back outside to enjoy the last of the day’s sunshine.
Music for the evening was by a fab duo who’s music inspired some lively dancing by Nicola and James! I left as the party really got started and the sun went down.
Nicola and James, it has been a real pleasure getting to know you, your wedding day made for a very special day and we wish you all the love and happiness for the future. Neil & Becky x
