Wedding photography Nottingham – Southwell wedding

Neil and Aimee’s late Autumn wedding took me to The Old Vicarage Boutique Hotel in Southwell. I photographed some weddings there before and must say that wedding photography at this venue is always a pleasure. Bride, groom and their twin boys Liam and Toby were all getting ready at the venue. As the morning progressed I have managed to capture some photos of the boys preparing. Then I moved to The Bridal Suite to photograph Aimee getting ready. I have never seen this part of the wedding day being so quiet. Aimee was getting ready on her own and with no help from hair and make-up people. Shortly Aimee’s mum had joined her in the room and there were some good giggles over the glass of bubbly. House was full of guests at this point and soon Aimee’s dad came into the room to see her for the first time all ready and in her wedding dress. I love to witness this moment at weddings as it is always very special and emotional. The ceremony was extremely happy and it was not hard to tell how much it means to Aimee and Neil. After 18 years of being together they finally said their vows. Then it came the celebration time. Prosecco and Canapes got served. We have managed to go outside for a handful of bride and groom portraits then quickly backed inside, it was getting dark already and temperatures dropped drastically. Speeches took place before the wedding breakfast and they were genuinely funny. Some speeches I get to hear at weddings I could repeat, especially when uncle ‘Google’ helps to write them. It was not the case this time. Well prepared, honest and with some good jokes too. When the wedding breakfast began I snapped some shots of food service then grabbed a short break. There were quite a few kids at this wedding and between the courses they ran around and messed about. Get few kids in a room with no adults to supervise and they always make a good photo. Before the cake cutting Aimee and Neil had made a short speech then without an official first dance the evening began. I soon disappeared into the night. It was a great wedding day and must say I really enjoyed photographing it all.
