The weather in North Nottinghamshire can be bizarre at this time of year. It had been foggy for the last few days without the sun making any appearance, but, it seemed Jo & Craig had all that in hand as literally just a couple of hours before their pre-wedding photoshoot the mist lifted and we were blessed with the most amazing light for their 40 minute photoshoot.
Jo & Craig booked me to photograph their big day way back in 2013 and the pre-wedding shoot was a perfect time to catch up and run through their plans over a warming cup of coffee, but first we had to make the most of this glorious evening light -it was fading fast!!
They are getting married later this month at Pearlthorpe Church on the edge of the Thoresby Estate in North Nottinghamshire followed by a reception at Thoresby Courtyard what has the backdrop of the stunning Grade 1 listed Thoresby Hall. Coupled with the wonderfully ornate gardens they have certainly chosen one of the regions finest venues to say their “I do’s” and i’m totally delighted that they have also chosen Rob Ferrol Photography to capture their special day.
I like to work in an unobtrusive way using a blend of contemporary and reportage photographic techniques to capture the full essence of your special day to create a compelling storybook portfolio of images for you to treasure for a lifetime.

Finally managed to get round to writing this blog from my last wedding of 2014. Its been an amazingly busy start to 2015 and certainly no complaints there!
Anyway, back to the wedding. Sarah & Michael contacted me through a good friend who was very kind enough to pass on a ‘word of mouth’ referral and they soon popped over to see some samples of my work. It was amazing to be able to capture this young couples special day as Michael was in the process of his Parachute Regiment training and the time they could spend together would be somewhat limited. Her Majesties Forces have an uncanny knack of messing with personal plans, trust me, i know from personal experience, and it was touch and go for a little while as to whether he would get leave the planned date.
Thankfully though, everything was sorted and it was off to beautiful rural Lincolnshire for an intimate family wedding in the village of Alford. The held their ceremony at the quaint Alford Community Church followed by reception at the recently refurbished Alford Corn Exchange.
Huge congratulations to Sarah & Micheal and thanks once again for booking Ron Ferrol Photography to capture your special day, your amazing album bundle has created a compelling storybook portfolio of images for you both to treasure. Here are just a small selection of their big day. Please feel free to share this blog post and if you are, or you know someone who is, getting married please do get in touch if you’ve still to book your wedding photographer.
I had the huge honour of being asked to photograph the Aurora Cancer Charity Christmas Ball again this year. The event is a spectacular finale celebrating all their fundraising efforts over the year and awards are given to some very deserving finalists.
The charity rallies support from the local business community, health care professionals and those affected by cancer either directly or indirectly and monies raised goes towards funding the Aurora Wellbeing Centres. The centres exist to help anyone with a cancer diagnosis by offering a free package of well-being treatments to help raise their confidence and self-esteem and create a general sense of well being. More info can be found on their website.
The Christmas Ball was an evening of glitz, glamour and fun with a full three course meal, awards presentations and a lively disco. Our event Photo Booth proved to be popular once again and many people headed home with a mounted image from our onsite printing team.
This week I took a trip down to London for the day with an old friend Bryn to shoot some street scenes. Street photography is a relatively new genre that I’m exploring but enjoying immensely. With no clear agenda I set out to record what I found interesting, what captured my attention and generally have a good bloomin day out. We walked miles and witnessed everything from candid emotions, street protests & Street artists all while doing a little bit of tourists snapping taking in the scenery and wonderful architecture of this fantastic city.
London has so much to offer and explore, way more than a day trip can do justice, so I’m hoping to head back down there next month. Anyway, here are a selection of images from the day, I hope you like them. Please feel free to leave me a comment and share with your friends, or stop by my website or Facebook page for more images and updates. Thanks for looking.
Start the day off with one of many coffee’s
Thanks not gonna get me to London, there’s workmen approaching.
