Worksop Nottinghamshire Wedding Photography

It was the last wedding of 2011 that we captured and it was bursting with some wonderful emotion and fun! I met Becca at a vintage wedding fair, I later met Simon and they booked us as their Nottingham wedding photographers. We’ve really enjoyed getting to know them both, their Nottingham engagement shoot at Clumber Park was so much fun!

Rebecca and Simon’s wedding day began for us as I joined Becca in the suite of their wedding venue, Clumber Park Hotel.  Becca was really chilled, calm but so very very excited! Her dress hung on the four poster, the detail of it was wonderful and with her gorgeous head-piece I could see how perfectly ‘Becca’ it all was.  Another special item for her was a stunning blue garter made by a dear friend for her, it was the prettiest garter I’ve ever seen …… and I’ve seen a few!  We both giggled whilst she was showing me the garter at how fabulous it is to have fiends ‘who can craft!’.

At various stages we popped downstairs and Becca showed me all the details, the wood cut snowflakes on the chair cover sashes, the hand cut reindeer table plan, the pine cones that she’d been collecting off trees in her garden and many other wonderful details. Becca made sure everything was ‘just right’ as she saw her vision come to fruition.  Meanwhile Neil had joined Simon and the guys, including Becca & Simon’s little boy.

Becca’s mum helped her get in to her dress and a special moment was seeing dad tieing the bow on the back.  It all then was a little emotional as the bridesmaids arrived back in the suite and everyone looked proudly on to Becca.

As it was time to walk down the aisle the ceremony room was lit by lanterns, and as Becca and Simon we’re back together again they cried and they laughed and then they cried some more at the personal readings by friends and family.

After Simon and Becca joined to become Mr & Mrs Sargison-Bowler, everyone headed for a celebratory drink! Santa made a quick appearance to give presents for the children and older boys!

The speeches after dinner once again bought lots of happy emotional moments and a lot of laughter from the years in photographs. Then followed the sweetie bar and first dance, which was a real treat, starting with a little traditional moves then breaking into a medley of songs which brought true entertainment to the dance floor.  It was the real finale for us of our year of 2011 weddings, so fun to watch and capture through our lens.

Becca and Simon, what a beautiful family you have, you are true soul mates and it has been a total pleasure to get to know you both and capture this very happy journey of your marriage.  May you keep making each other smile and creating that odd tear or two of happiness.

Mr & Mrs Batey – 31 October 2009

In his speech Steve said that Sam made life easy, he didn’t have to explain that it because she was a great asset around the house, I knew what he meant. Finding your true partner does put that extra spring in your step and a bigger smile on your face. Steve and Sam were brimming with happiness and smiles as they joined in their marriage on 31 October at St Peter & Pauls church in Warsop and then at Clumber Park Hotel.

I spent a couple of hours with the bridal party before arriving at the church, Sam was ready and looking gorgeous as I left. I’ll remember Steve for being the most relaxed groom I’ve met before his wedding as he supped a big mug of tea at the front of the church whilst waiting for it to fill with their guests. He was so excited yet calm and ready to meet his bride!! However I did later joke with him that he seemed more nervous before his speech!

After the ceremony we drove over to their reception at Clumber Park Hotel, where they had a beautiful room set for their reception dinner. It was after coffee that the gents gave their speeches, and I think Steve’s best man Pete did an amazing job for his efforts of putting together a great speech for his great friend. As true football fans he started with a letter from Stuart Pearce congratulating Sam and Steve on their wedding day, then he showed video clips from numerous Nottingham Forest players who also sent their best wishes.

Mr & Mrs Batey, thank you for inviting us to capture such a beautiful and exciting time of your lives. We wish you both lots and lots of love and happiness!!
