Yesterday we had the great pleasure in photographing the wedding of Helen and Glen at Woodborough Hall, with the company of Tillyboo Events who co-ordinated the day amazingly. Together Neil and I were there to meet Glen and his brothers before the ceremony, taking in what truly felt to be the first day of Spring. With snowdrops out on the lawn and the sun bursting through the clouds, it was a magical March day to have chosen to marry. Helen arrived looking amazing and I’m still remembering her smiles as she and Glen met once again in front of the registrar.
After the ceremony they went for a drive alone with a good glass of Moet, and then returned to drinks on the lawn with their guests. Best Man Mark, provided some amusing tales during his speech, which saw one of the guests winning the sweepstake prize for the total time of speeches. (Nice touch I thought!).
We finished with some evening shots on the lawn, then warmed the dance floor up with the first dance.
Glen and Helen, we wish you every happiness for the future. We’ve enjoyed every moment of getting to know you and every second of capturing your day. Our very best wishes for now and your future journey together as Mr & Mrs Rippon.
Last month we had a competition on our Facebook site to win a complimentary Valentine photo shoot. Nora and Jim from London were our fabulous lucky couple and I spent the morning with them at Wollaton Park, on what was a sunny winter’s Valentine weekend.
On Valentine’s day I met with Helen and Glen at Wollaton Park to chat more about their wedding day plans for this March at Woodborough Hall. I then took some pre-wed shots of them around the grounds and we all got to know each other better before their day! Helen and Glen have been together for 12 years and the connection between them was fabulous, lots of smiles and special glances, a beautiful match! Helen and Glen we are really excited about your wedding day, I’m looking forward to lots more smiles and a basket full of happy emotions. xx
At the beginning of the month we spent the weekend in York and had a REAL BLAST!! It was a great weekend, whereby fellow photographers/friends all met, socialised and hired a bunch of models and makeup artists to have fun with photography. This is a great way for us to develop and explore our style, so I’m going to share some images from the shoot over the next few weeks.
Pride Park wedding fayre yesterday!!! We met lots of brides/grooms-to-be who are all either ticking their way through their wedding planning list or just at the start of the exciting adventure of planning their wedding. Thank you to all that came to visit our stand is was lovely to chat to you all, we’re very excited about hearing more about your plans very soon!
We also met some other fabulous wedding service providers which I’d just like to give a mention to as I think what they have to offer is fantastic and they’re lovely people to have involved in your wedding. I was wowed by the beautiful stationary of Figtree Creative, together Rachel and her husband create stunning stationery that looks professional and so very elegant.
It was a pleasure also to get to know and listen to the music of Paul Martyn, he’s got some great vocals and he plays the sax beautifully too. It’s always a joy to work alongside some great music so thanks Paul!
