Stephanie and Peter chose to have a Carriage Hall Wedding in Nottingham. Stephanie chose a gorgeous wedding dress and she looked absolutely beautiful in it. Just like a princess!
There was a hiccup with the flowers. A problem which I’m sure other bride’s would have been understandably really angry or upset. However, Stephanie was as cool as a cucumber and didn’t stress. In fact, both her and Peter were both very laid back and were happy to be getting married.
It was my first humanist ceremony at Carriage Hall rather than the usual civil ceremony. This meant totally personalised vows which I feel is a beautiful touch. Unlike many barn venues, Carriage Hall’s main has a lot of large windows which let a lot of natural light floods into the room. This helps to create beautiful wedding photos without the need to use flash which I find can be distracting.
After the service, their guests were all given bubbles rather than the traditional confetti. I think this worked really well and would definitely recommend it for anyone who may have restrictions with confetti or if they just would rather do something a little different.
The speeches were after the all important wedding breakfast. Peter’s speech brought tears to his mum’s eyes. Then Stephanie followed with an awesome speech, I saw Peter holding back the tears too!
How we First Met
We first met Stephanie and Peter at a wedding fair at Carriage Hall. Stephanie contacted my wife & I after the fair because she said we were the only ones who did not ‘pounce’ on her and try to ‘sell sell sell’. Unfortunately this does often seem to be the case at wedding fairs. My goal is to always treat customers who I want to be treated. I know I wouldn’t like to be pounced on at every wedding stand. So it’s not an approach I take. Instead I’m happy to answer any questions you have. Let you have a browse through my samples then if you like my work then I’m always happy to talk to you about what you need! Rather than just talk about myself!
There are lots of great places to take gorgeous photos at Carriage Hall. Personally I like to use the long path outside and also the shepherd huts as they are very quirky and unique. The sun sets down the path towards the main road. So if the weather is with you, this is an ideal place for a gorgeous sunset photograph.
My wife, Daiga from No Ordinary Films was the wedding videographer too. Together we really enjoyed the day and it was certainly our privilege to be able to preserve memories and moments for Stephanie & Peter’s wedding.
As featured on…..
After the wedding, the photos below were noticed by the English Wedding Blog who asked if it would be possible to feature them on their website. This was a real honour as getting featured by such a well respected blog site is usually difficult. To be asked if they could, is even more special!
Thankfully the bride and groom were happy for their images to be shared and I hope they will give some inspiration for anyone who is planning to get married themselves and want some amazing Carriage Hall wedding photos.
I do always enjoy photographing at Carriage Hall. So if you are getting married at this stunning venue then I’d love to hear from you. Click on my Contact page, tell me a little more about what you have planned. I’d love to be part of your day.
