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
