Shoot :

Sunny May vintage wedding…

We’ve been predicted lovely weather for this upcoming Mayday weekend here in Leicestershire, its put me in mind of a beautiful vintage wedding I covered a couple of years ago at the same time of the year. The lovely bride & groom, Roz & Jamie were also blessed with sunshine and a super happy day.

I was really excited to cover this wedding as I’d actually worked with Roz in the past in the theatre and I knew with her dance and performance background she was going to be a joy to shoot.  Here she is dancing her way through Nottingham from her hotel to the ceremony venue Nottingham Council House.

Unfortunately the huge square in front of the venue was closed for building works, meaning the bridal party had to walk around the edge, much to the delight of the afternoon shoppers but it was a shame for the couple not to get some images infront of this stunning building. However there will always be something to work around on wedding days and I think we managed really well.

I began at Roz’s hotel covering her relaxed bridal dress up with her lovely stylist Raye from Vintage Victory Rollers  who’d travelled up from the West Country to be there.

Jamie was nervously waiting at the Council House with his bestman, friends and family. Roz was given away by her father. The stunning staircase inside the building gave me a lot of oportunities for great shots, including a full group one after the ceremony.

After the ceremony all the guests boarded a red London bus and we moved to the arboretum for pictures.


The guests blew bubbles in place of confetti, which has worked wonderfully in the images. There were lots of fun shots, even jumping & dancing from the bridal party & couple alongside some more romantic moments.


For these we wandered away from the main group…


Then we were away down to the river for an ‘afterparty’ style reception at a boat club. The May sunshine lasted the day, as did the smiles, the bubbles and the love…
