Wollaton Hall Wedding PhotographyDan and Ana

Before I say anything about the Wollaton Hall wedding photography, I must stress that this time, I’m going to keep the promise of regular blogging! I really need to get into the habit and post most or even all the weddings I shoot. The new website has just been launched and I can only complement its new look by keeping it fresh with updates on my recent wedding photography. Great time of the year to add it onto the new years resolutions list. I know, I have said that last year too but this time it’s for real!

So first wedding to blog after a long break is Dan and Ana’s Wollaton Hall wedding. English/Venezuelan extravaganza that for a documentary wedding photographer like me was a true joy to shoot. Relaxed day filled with laughter and happiness. Chilled vibe was present all day long not to mention fun and madness (especially during the crazy hour, more about that below).

As usual, I started with some photos during the morning preparations at the house. Dan and Ana were both getting ready there, yet managed not to see each other throughout the morning. Dan, best man and bridesmaids hopped onto the vintage double decker bus and went to The Browns brasserie to greet both sides of the family. After some more shots of the hair and make-up done by Nageena, I soon joined them there. The wedding ceremony took place at the St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham City Centre. I have shoot weddings at the Cathedral before and it was great to revisit. I love its architectures and space inside.
Ana and her mum arrived in a spectacular vintage Ford Zodiac, then the ceremony began. Happy throughout with lots of smiles and intimate moments I managed to capture. After a confetti blast outside the Cathedral it was time to begin the party. I was really looking forward to more Wollaton Hall wedding photography as I have shoot there before but only for the ceremony part, not the evening reception. I wasn’t disappointed at all, stunning interiors and surroundings provided amazing backgrounds for the shots. The drinks reception took place at the Camellia House, the oldest cast iron glass house in Europe! Chilled out Latin American music and warm August afternoon light really complemented the atmosphere. Supper delicious food was served by Red Olive Catering. Thanks for feeding me guys, the lamb dish was awesome! Also hats off to Ana, she made all flower arrangements and bouquets by herself!
I love when the wedding evening kicks off early and it was one of these parties. Dancing started well before cutting of the cake and the first dance. Looked like some guests from bride’s side have salsa riddim flowing in their veins. As soon as the the music hits, they dance. I stopped at Dan and Ana’s wedding a little longer to see what the ‘La Hora Loca’ means. When the ‘crazy hour’ wild fiesta began, various party favours were distributed amongst the guests. People wore masks, wigs, playful hats and colourful glasses then danced the night away like crazy. I would love to see this type of the party enhancer at every wedding. The joy and laughter was heard for miles!
Enough talking, here are my favourite shots from the day.
