I know there was more than a handful but I couldn’t help it….

Wethele Manor Wedding – Dan and Sam

I would say about 40% of my couples book me through word of mouth. I absolutely love this because I get to see familiar faces again, as guests usually cross over! Dan and Sam sent me a lovely email and a few weeks later, I was capturing the wedding of Sarah and Michael (you can see their wedding here).

As the guests were enjoying the wedding breakfast, Dan and Sam came out for a breather and introduced themselves as the Guys who had enquired about their wedding!! We got on so well and I was soon booked to capture their wedding also.

They had a movie theme and this ran throughout the day. The tables were named after movies and the confetti was popcorn! Wethele Manor was the perfect venue and both Grooms got ready together, in the same place. This made the morning even more special, with each of them helping with the finishing touches.

I hope you enjoy looking back on their day, like I did capturing it…..

Pimhill Barn Wedding – Sarah and Michael

Rustic Barn WeddingI have got so many wonderful weddings to show you, starting with Sarah and Michael’s.

Sarah is the cousin of my very talented and good friend Abigail aka Pumpkin Events. I’ve been very fortunate to get to know this family well, capturing a few of the weddings in their family.

Chatting to Sarah on the lead up to the wedding and finding out about their plans, I just knew this was going to a wonderful day and the styling was going to be amazing. Everything from the bridal prep to the dancing was also going to be in one place, which I find really relaxes a Bride on her wedding day.

We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather in the morning and afternoon. After the beautiful ceremony, everybody was outside pimping their pimms and we sneaked off for a few couple portraits. The guests were entertained by live singers throughout the day and by the time the meal was finished, there were garden games to enjoy. This is where the heavens opened! What I absolutely loved was the guests did not care! Nothing was stopping them from playing these games and everybody was laughing.

Here is a little peek into their day….

A DIY Wedding at Alveston Pastures Farm – Sophie and Craig

Alveston Pastures Farm Wedding Photographer

Where do I begin with this amazing wedding?! Sophie and Craig got married in Stratford Upon Avon Town Hall. It was the first time I had ever been there and it was such a beautiful building. It’s always nice when a Bride gets ready in a local hotel to where the ceremony is going to be and walks around to it. People on the way are so lovely and always like seeing a beautiful bride on the way to her wedding.

The reception was held at a venue called Alveston Pastures Farm. It was also the first time I had been there and it was a bit of a hidden treasure. One thing this venue offers, that a lot of venues don’t, is dry hire! Yes you read that right…a barn that allows a dry hire for your wedding!

So many of my couples try and find beautiful places where they can sort everything else out themselves and they are few and far between! This barn does and I had the pleasure as always, to also work alongside Rustic Roast Kitchen as the caterers. They provided the relaxed BBQ food that Sophie and Craig wanted for their day.

With a slight Harry Potter theme running through the day, guests enjoyed the photo booth, especially when it included the invisibility cloaks that were on offer to borrow ;). Then we came to the cake cutting but as you can imagine, it wasn’t your traditional cake cut. There was a cake table and if you were the lucky chosen one, you got to pick which cake you wanted for your table!

In the evening, it started to rain slightly and I commented to Sophie and Craig that it was a shame they hadn’t brought the umbrella they used on their engagement shoot, where it poured down and guess what? They had!! I couldn’t resit a few night time shots with this and was so happy we got to do this for both occasions.

I really hope you love the images. I certainly loved taking them…..

Rustic Wedding Theme Inspiration – Wedding of my dreams

One of the things us Photographers get a chance to do when the wedding season is coming to an end, is blog! Over the next few months, you are going to see a lot of blog posts and they are going to be full of inspiration.

This one is absolutely packed full of it. Wedding of my dreams asked if I would be involved in a shoot to capture a lot of things you can buy off their amazing site. Each table had a different theme and every little thing you can see on these tables, you can buy! Make sure you have a good look around and if there is anything that you fall in love with, you now know where you can get it from. Starting with….

A classic neutral theme with a hint of Gold….

Mythe Barn Wedding – Natalie and Sam

I didn’t have long to get to know Natalie and Sam. It was a week in fact. They were let down by another photographer and contacted me to see if I was available and I was!

Everything was held in one place on the day, at Mythe Barn. When I pulled up on the morning of the wedding, the garden games were already being set up on the lawn outside. It was such a beautiful day, with the weather definitely being on our side.

Natalie’s perfect Ronald Joyce dress from Lula Ann Bridal hung on the huge mirrors in the bridal suite, whilst the Men arrived at the venue to get ready in the rooms around the courtyard.

Natalie looked so beautiful and before we knew it, the veil was going on and it was time to walk down those stairs. At this point, I was walking into the ceremony room to a very nervous looking Sam. I felt the excitement for him, as I’d seen how gorgeous she looked!

It was such a perfect and emotional ceremony, with laugher throughout. This was the theme throughout the day. The styling was gorgeous and you could see the thought that had gone into everything, even down to the tiny locket hanging from Natalie’s bouquet.

I hope you love these images as much as I loved taking them. It was amazing to work alongside Craig again from Amazing Dayz Wedding Films.

Festival Themed Tipi Wedding – Rachel and Michael

Festival themed tipi wedding

Festival themed tipi wedding with Elite Tents

When Rachel and Mike booked me, they hadn’t found their ideal venue yet, they had only booked Elite Tents to supply the Tipis! About a month later I had an email saying it was going to be held at Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens. I already knew how beautiful these gardens were from capturing weddings in the Hall, so I was really excited to see the Tipis up there.

For me, it was a bit of a surprise about the wedding day. I didn’t know a theme for a start, so when I arrived at the house for bridal prep and saw the ‘Woodfest’ invite that had gone out to the guests, I couldn’t wait to see what they had planned for the reception!!

After the ceremony and a few photos outside, I raced off to get to Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens before any guests got there and WOW……the first thing you saw was this walkway of multi coloured flags, lining the way for the guests.

As I was walking down, I saw the wonderful Marianne of M Style taking photos of her creation. I couldn’t wait to see what she had done. There were wooden garden signs everywhere, directing the guests to where things where. There were paper lanterns and streamers in the trees to add colour and then there was inside. The table centres had been made, there was bottles of drink to help yourself to in wheelbarrows and the most amazing bell tent set up that I have seen, for people to camp out in. A wedding camp site! Rachel and Mike had thought of everything.

It was wonderful to work alongside Kate at The Wedding Companion again, as she made sure everything was running smoothly and Fine Food Matters provided the tasty food you can see below.

Mythe Barn Wedding Photos – Maddy and Ste

Tipi Wedding PhotographerMaddy and Ste met me at one of Mythe Barn’s open days. I’m so lucky, as a Birmingham Wedding Photographer, to be local enough to capture weddings at Mythe Barn since the day it opened. Soon after us meeting, I was counting down for their wedding day.

Fast forward to 2017 and Maddy and I met up for a coffee to chat about the day, as it was fast approaching. To say I was excited after this was an understatement. They had booked some of the best suppliers out there.

Pumpkin events were styling the reception room! Bridal Hair Specialists were doing the hair and Hayley Price was doing the make up. Then there were the flowers!! I obviously couldn’t know how amazing these were going to look until the day and wow, The Florist Gate did not disappoint.

Here is Mythe Barn’s ceremony room….

Mythe Barn Wedding PhotosWhen I arrived at the venue, bridal prep was in full swing. Everyone was really excited and many suppliers were busy downstairs making the rooms look more amazing than they already did.

As I made my way downstairs, I saw how nervous Ste was and I knew the minute he saw how beautiful Maddy looked, he wasn’t going to be able to hold back his emotions. I love watching people in love and that moment they are saying the vows to one another.

Everything was so perfect throughout the day and my favourite part was seeing all the guests have so much fun with the singing waiters.

After Maddy and Ste received their gallery, they had the most wonderful things to say “I knew as soon as I saw Nicola’s work I would be using her for our wedding day! On the day Nicola is there for you and helps as though she is part of your friends and family. She knows exactly what to capture and I felt at ease all day! When we sat through and looked at our photos it brought back so many memories of our day that we didn’t take in, so it was lovely to go through them. I would 100% recommend Nicola”.

I don’t think my couples realise it’s me who’s the lucky one! I hope you enjoy looking through the images from the day too. There is so much wedding inspiration here!

The West Mill Wedding Venue – Perfect East Midlands Wedding Venue – Lucy and Dave

 

The West Mill Wedding Photographer

I am extremely lucky that I get to capture weddings in the most beautiful venues and it’s always exciting when I receive an email, asking me to capture a wedding in a venue I have never been to before.

The West Mill is a sort after wedding venue in the East Midlands. It was an industrial Mill that has been transformed into the most beautiful, popular wedding venue. If you like the thought of exposed brick walls and a very stripped back, industrial looking wedding venue, then this is the place for you.

When Lucy and Dave got in touch and told me about their day, I couldn’t help but get excited. Not only was the venue amazing but I also knew the florist they had chosen and she happened to be Lucy’s Godmother, so the flowers were going to be something special!

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The weather was beautiful and the day ran seamlessly. What I loved about the West Mill is the fact that each stage of the wedding happens on a different floor of the building. There is no turn around time!

Thank you Lucy and Dave for throwing the perfect wedding! I really hope you love your wedding photos as much as I loved capturing your day,
