A thank you from Penny and Dugald from their Derbyshire Wedding Day

A beautiful thank you received from Penny and Dugald, married in Derbyshire, November 2012.

We arrived at the Mill today and were greeted by our landlady with a handful of mail, which included this beautiful and heart warming card from Penny & Dugald who celebrated their Derbyshire wedding day at Melbourne Church and The Priest House by The River.

Both Neil and I captured their wedding day, it was a real joy as Penny and Dugald are such s fun and fabulous couple, I’m going to miss them now their wedding day has passed and they return to their busy acting lives down in London.   But receiving this thank you is definitely a wonderful keepsake along with the memories of their special day.

 

Dear Becky & Neil

Recognise the Photo?!  (Captured on Penny & Dugalds engagement photo session)

We can’t thank you enough for your magnificent photos of our wedding.   They really are so special, capture the day so perfectly – looking at them we are transported immediately to the special day – thank you.  We were so lucky to have found you as our wedding photographers!

I must also say how amazed I was of your people management skills – far harder when the majority of the congregation are actors!  Thank you.  I hope it wasn’t too stressful and what with the flooding, it all made for an even more unique day.  It truly was the happiest day, and we will be forever grateful for your exquisite photography, care and attention you put into it.

Best wishes and thanks, Penny & Dugald x

James & Nicola enjoy a sunny Shottle Hall Wedding Day

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

Love the Dress with Jenny

After a beautiful wedding day a Love The Dress photo session can be the perfect time to enjoy getting back into your dress once more and enjoying some one to one photo time.

We’ve known Jenny for a couple of years now when her and Andy booked us as their Derby wedding photographers back in 2010.  They had a stunning Blackbrook House wedding last year in September, it was an amazing day and one that Neil and I hold great memories from.

Jenny and Andy enjoyed a styled Nottingham engagement photo shoot with us last summer, so they’ve really got to know us very well and felt relaxed with us photographing them.  On their wedding day, Jenny wore a beautiful vintage laced styled wedding dress and it wasn’t too long after Jenny and Andy’s Blackbrook House Wedding that she enquired about having a Love The Dress shoot with Becky to wear it once more.  We originally made plans to go where the grass was long and have a country themed shoot, however the wet Summer of 2012 has meant we’ve had to accommodate the heavy and often lengthy rain showers.  So we took the opportunity to meet at The Mill, whilst the rain and the thunder storm clattered around us.  Jenny’s mum and sister joined us, with Meg bringing her bridemaids dress along for a few photographs too.  We started with photos in the studio of the Mill and as soon as there was a break in the heavy rain we went outside in to the surrounding area, armed with a few brollies and had a great time.

Considering the depth of the water out on the streets and pavements we did an amazing job of Loving Jenny’s dress rather than trash it, we also got to see a few variations in footwear too … Jenny’s a real shoe girl!

It was fabulous to capture you again Jenny in your dress! As always a great pleasure to send time with you and your family.  Becky x

Colwick Hall Nottingham Wedding photographers

We met Alison and Andrew early last year when they chose us as their Nottingham wedding photographers to capture their wedding in Papplewick Nottingham and then at the beautiful Colwick Hall.  Local to Newstead Abbey where they’d enjoyed their engagement shoot I joined Ali for the bridal preparations whilst Neil joined the guys over at the Nottingham Belfry, whilst they finished getting ready and learning the art of tieing a cravat.

With a home full of ladies getting ready Alison’s dad kept us entertained with his little tunes, the girls were extremely organised, relaxed and running well to time.  Even the younger ones helped each other with hair and dressing. Alison’s flowers arrived, by the fabulous Tineke Floral Designs and the ladies all looked in admiration at them as the lay on the dining room table.

Alison and Andrew married at a small church in Papplewick, the drive down the daffodil lined lane was a pretty one and once inside the busy church was full of guests both up and down stairs.  After a beautiful service it was outside into the cool Spring sunshine, armed with wellies Ali and the bridesmaids made the short walk through the woods to Papplewick Hall where drinks were waiting for guests to enjoy before boarding the coach to Colwick Hall.

Once we all arrived at Colwick Hall we captured the group photographs and strolled the grounds.  It was then time for dinner and the all important speeches, it’s always a best man gets the groom moment when the head goes into the hands!

The evening then started with a beautiful first dance, the footsteps of a beautiful new journey together.

Andrew and Ali, we loved capturing your day for you, having spent this time with you we can see what a match you are, how your love is such a strong and perfect one for each other.  We wish you all the very very happiness.  Neil & Becky xx

Leadenham House Wedding Photography

After our sneak peek we thought we’d show you a wider selection from our Leadenham House Wedding photography shoot last month.  With around a dozen Nottingham, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire wedding suppliers working together we created the wedding scene from bridal preparations in the beautiful bedrooms, the civil ceremony in the formal lounge then dinner and dance in the dinning room and hall.

This beautiful period house is set in superb grounds, the views from the bedrooms and gallery at the top of the stairs are quite breathtaking along with the warm welcome and delightful interior Leadenham House is a picture postcard card place to marry.

Jen wore the elegant Bali dress by Ian Stuart, which was supplied by Mimi Toko the Derbyshire wedding boutique stocking Ian Stuart dresses. Hair for Jen & Lee was styled by VM Hairdressing and make up by Sarah J Gamble Professional Makeup. The hair accesories were provided by Exclusive Wedding Design.

Room styling with chair covers were created by the Wedding Event Design Studio along with style, design and co-ordination of the day by Tillyboo Events.

The fabulous bouquet of flowers for Jen were designed by Tineke Floral Designs, along with teh table flowers.  The stunning wedding cake was created by cake creative Yummy Little Cakes.

Lee wore suits supplied by TLC Formal Hire and music was played for us by due Ark Angel.

Oh and of course us, Nottingham wedding Photographers Neil & Necky Butterworth!
