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.

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.

Commercial Event Photography

One of the many things we enjoy covering are corporate black tie events.  We provide full coverage from the candid capture of your guests enjoying the evening to the more personal posed portraits capturing everyone in their finery and splendour whether its an end of year corporate celebration to a full on awards event with celebrity attendance.

Recently we provided portrait coverage for the No Offence CIC annual Redemption & Justice awards ceremony at the prestigious The Brewery Venue situated in the East end of London.  An event celebrating achievement, success and determination from people from a multitude of backgrounds, from those in deepest of despair to those at the top of ladder.

You can see a few of the images captured on the evening below and also a “behind the scenes” clip of the setup we can offer to add a different dimension to your corporate or charity event.  Get in touch for details or see our website.

Bluebell Wood

apologies for not posting for sometime.  Its been a hectic few weeks in my home and unfortunately not in the photographic sense.   Last week some unscrupulous members of society decided they would like to break into my garage and steal my Motorbike and my new mountain bike.  Now, I could vent my anger with a few expletives but i’m not gonna let these scoundrels get the better of me.

So, after taking care of sorting new security measures, lights, locks and booby traps, lol, I headed out for a photoshoot to lift my spirits.  The location was an unsuspecting wood right next to the A614 near Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire.  Hundreds of vehicles must pass this location every day but I wonder how few take the time to look into the woods at this special time of year.

It’s that time when the Bluebells come out and I for one did not know that there was a wonderful Bluebell wood right on my doorstep.  It’s only after viewing a local photographers Blog that I came across this location.  Thanks to Mark Tierney for the directions and inspiration.

It’s only a small wood but has easy access from the layby, but, try to avoid entering the wood by the layby, unfortunately its strewn with litter.  It’s better to walk along the edge of the wood 100ft or so by the road, being carefull of traffic obviously, then enter the wood there. 

The compositions it offers are endless, indeed, the images below were taken with a variety of lenses from a Sigma 10-20m, Canon 17-40mm L, and a Sigma 70-200mm.  The first few images were taken in the harsh midday light on one visit and after much excitement I arranged another visit with some fellow photographers Doug Chinnery, Carl Mickleburgh and James Davies.  A fun evening rewarded with fantastic light and good humour.  Please follow the links and view their work from this location on Flickr, they are great photographers and have fantastic portfolios which i’m sure you will enjoy viewing. 

This spectacle only lasts for a few weeks each year so ill certainly be heading out there again over the next week or so, otherwise its a long wait till next year. 

Now, I’m off to arrange collection of my wrecked motorcycle, oh the joys!!
