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.

Nottinghamshire Wedding Photography – Thoresby Courtyard – Joanne & Craig

Last weekend saw me photographing the wedding of Joanne & Craig with weather in complete contrast to their pre-wedding photoshoot.  If you missed that blog post you can find it here.  However, although challenging, the weather did not spoil the fun, emotion and love that these two quite clearly shared.

Their ceremony was held at St John’s Church in the small hamlet of Perlethorpe followed by an evening reception at the Thoresby Courtyard set in the grounds of Thoresby Hall, a grade 1 listed house on the edge of Sherwood forrest.  They were transported between the venues in a pristine  Austin Sixteen supplied by Wedding Classics

With beautiful twinkling fairy lights and amazing Christmas themed table dressings by Dan Ross at Individual by Design and sumptuous catering by Summersby Catering it truly was an evening of high spirits and happiness.

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.
