Nottinghamshire Wedding Photography – Thoresby Courtyard – Rebecca & Dave

Todays blog post if from a wedding back in October at the stunning Thoresby Hall/Courtyard.  Rebecca & Dave booked me way back in 2016 after seeing a previous blog post from the same venue.  I’m typing this on a cold rainy January day and that seems to be the norm while i’m sat at the computer, roll on spring & summer.

Rebecca chose to have her bridal prep with all the bridal party in one of the exquisite rooms in Thoresby Hall, a grade 1 listed building built in 1865 and location for some of the filming of the film Great Expectations.  Her stunning dress was designed by Sophia Toli and supplied by Iconic Bride in nearby Edwinstowe.  Hair styling was completed by Helen Hewgill & make-up was was done by Sam from Sam’s Cottage creations.

Their wedding ceremony took place at Perlethorpe church, just a short car journey away, at the edge of the Thoresby Estate and after a few group photos, and special photoshoot with her horse Ella, it was off to Thoresby Courtyard for their wedding breakfast and reception.  Obviously, the couple made that short journey in style with a beautiful vintage car supplied Fabulous Cars.

Thoresby courtyard is the perfect canvas to crate your own bespoke look for your evening celebration, i’ve photographed numerous wedding here and no two are the same.  On this occasion the room decor was partially completed by Dan at Individual by design with other finishing touched by Rebecca and Dave themselves and with flowers by Jill’s Fabulous Flowers, Retford.

After a sumptuous meal supplied by Hensons catering it was time to get the party started with evening entertainment from the band Episode 21.

All in all, it was an amazing day with weather typical of the time of year, unpredictable, but it didn’t detract from a beautiful emotive day and a happy celebration of Dave & Rebecca’s love for each other.

The Streets of London

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.
