A Fun & Relaxed Wedding in Nottingham City Centre
I’d worked on a few projects with Kerrie in the past and we had so much fun in the process, when her and Luke got engaged she dropped me a message to see if I’d photograph their wedding at the Council House in Nottingham City Centre. She talked about how low-key and informal it would be, and after the ceremony they would carry on the party at Revolucion de Cuba. It all sounded right up my street, and like an absolute blast. I was in! And in May last year they tied the knot, and it was a fantastic day! Filled with so much fun and laughter, it was exactly the sort of wedding I love. Throwing tradition to the wind and just doing things their own way!
Bridal Prep at Home
With wedding photography, you often read about photographers “telling the story of your day”, and to me that means creating a full narrative of the wedding day, with a beginning, middle, and end. And what better way to start of a story than at home! Which is what I did with Kerrie, as she got ready with her daughters, her parents, and one of her friends who was helping with her hair.
Civil Ceremony at Nottingham Council House
The council house in the centre of Nottingham is a stunning building, and makes for a fantastic wedding venue. With all the hustle of the streets outside, it gives so much energy to the photos as people arrive and leave the building. For Kerrie and Luke, they loved that it was so central, and they chose a reception venue that was walking distance, so they could walk through Nottingham with their guests. I love these photos of the two of them along with their kids, leading the wedding guests to Revolucion de Cuba for the party!
Relaxed, Fun-Filled Reception in a Bar
In keeping with their whole approach to the wedding day, the reception was in a private room upstairs in a city centre bar. There was no formal sit-down meal. Instead, they had a fantastic tapas-style buffet for their guests. It had such a chilled-vibe, and with no first dance, or formalities, they were free to just enjoy the afternoon and evening with their guests.
