The week before Christmas I photographed two weddings, the first was that of Louise and Kevin who were married at Colwick Hall in Nottingham.

Amidst the snow that we’re having this week, it seems a long time ago since we had rain but it certainly rained on Louise and Kevin’s wedding day, in fact it didn’t stop all day!

The day started for me with Louise in the bridal suite of Colwick Hall (which is an amazing room by the way!) and I then went to meet Kevin and his boys prior to the ceremony.

Louise was really chilled out during the bridal preparations and, as you will see, looked absolutely stunning.

Following a beautiful ceremony and drinks reception, it was then time for the wedding breakfast meal and, one of my favourite parts of the day, the speeches.

This was one of those days when not only drinks were flowing but tears too and I found it incredibly hard not to cry myself during the speeches which were very emotional by everyone who gave a speech. A credit to Kevin were his 3 children who all had a role in the day and it was clear that Louise and Kevin were both very proud of them.

Kevin arranged a fantastic surprise for Louise and never in a million years would I have guessed what was in the present which he gave her during the speeches (check out the photos below!).

The day for me ended following the speeches but I’m pretty certain that everyone would have been partying to the end of the night celebrating Louise and Kevin’s special day.

I would like to thank Louise and Kevin for choosing me to be their wedding photographer. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and your family and I wish you all the happiness in the world together.

Joanne Wakefield at Cakey Wakey styled the ceremony room and wedding breakfast room for Louise and Kevin’s wedding and did fantastic job! Having worked with Cakey Wakey before I can
highly recommend them for cakes, venue styling and car hire.

I just wanted to share with you Louise and Kevin’s feedback too which they kindly posted after seeing their wedding photos:-
