My first of many scheduled visits this year to one of my favourite venues to photograph Ben & Lara’s wedding. I was delighted to have been chosen as their Nottinghamshire golf club wedding photographer. Claire & her team greeted everyone warmly as they always do and made everyone feel so welcome.
Ben & Lara got married at All Saints church in Cotgrave. The girl’s got ready at Lara’s grandma’s house before travelling the short distance to meet Ben & the rest of the guys at Church. After a great service, we came outside to the weather fast turning. The wind & rain soon started up and we all arrived at the Nottinghamshire on what was probably one of the rainiest days I can remember this year. Ben & Lara had chosen a Disney theme for their wedding which was befitting since it really was a fairy tale wedding.
After some rather amazing food, came the very emotional speeches. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. It was also great to catch up with my friends at Bliss Chair covers who had decorated the room fantastically and was providing candy floss for the kids as well as a photobooth.
The rain & wind were still there but Ben & Lara were happy to brave the elements and had even purchased their own matching umbrella’s. A sign they were well prepared! We popped outside for ten minutes just before the first dance to get some outdoor portraits and I think it’s safe to say it was worth it.
I left the happy couple not long after the first dance as the rest of their family & friends partying the night away.
Below are some of my favourite photos from the day. I will be back soon and very much looking forward to it already. If you are getting married at the Nottinghamshire and looking for a creative wedding photographer that can produce stunning images no matter what the weather, drop me a message I would love to find out more about your plans.
