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

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

 

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,

Beautiful Tipi Wedding with Elite Tents – Chelsea and Jim

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

We hit it off from the day we met. So much so, Chelsea and I would meet up for ‘wedding chat’ dates that would be lunch dates, with a little bit of wedding talk at the end.

For such a long time I was waiting for this day to come around. To see it all come together. I’d never been to a wedding with bumper cars there for a start and I knew there were so many details to look forward to!

When the day finally arrived, we thought it wasn’t going to stop raining. They were having a Tipi wedding supplied by Elite Tents and rain wasn’t a welcome guest! It didn’t put anyone off though, in fact, once you were in the Tipi, you didn’t really notice what was going on outside.

Eventually the rain did stop, everyone went outside and the evening do began on the bumper cars! Quite an entertaining thing to watch when everyone had been on the table wine!

I really hope you enjoy the pictures and witnessing that even if it does rain on your Tipi wedding, you’ll be having too much fun to even care!

Rhianna and Michael’s Tipi Wedding – Newlands Bishop Farm Wedding

Tipi wedding
Rhianna and Mike are two of the nicest, most genuine people I have had the pleasure of meeting. Once they started telling me about their plans, I could see it was them!
They picked this wonderful venue called Newlands Bishop Farm. This venue is a working farm but holds weddings on weekends. To help at these weddings, they employ adults with learning disabilities, mental health problems and brain injuries. All the income generated from weddings goes directly to the development of Newlands Bishop Farm. It’s a wonderful place!
The atmosphere on the day was amazing. I hope you can see by the pictures how happy and relaxed everyone was.

Gorgeous Farm Wedding – Liv and Andy

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

I first met Liv and Andy on their engagement shoot and we went for a walk to view the Church and where the reception was going to be. As far as I knew, it was at Andy’s Grandparents farm, not too far away. We approached this beautiful house and it wasn’t until a little further on I realised Andy’s Grandad was keen on trains. So much so that he’d built his own railway in the garden!

When you think this family couldn’t get any better, the wedding day arrived. I walked into Liv’s Parents house and instantly thought I’d never seen anything like it. I was shown the most beautiful dress and asked who the designer was, to be told Liv’s Mum had made it! Can this family be anymore talented?

I hope the photos show what an amazing day this was…..

Birtsmorton Court Summer Wedding – Suzy and Tristan

Birmingham Wedding PhotographerWhen you imagine your perfect venue, Birtsmorton Court in Worcestershire is up there with the best! It is unbelievably beautiful and there is no way you could possibly see all of it in one day.

I met Suzy’s Parents at an open day held at Birtsmorton Court. We hit it off straight away and the next thing I knew, Suzy and Tristan’s wedding had finally arrived.

It was all held at the venue, from Bridal prep to the first dance, so the atmosphere was very relaxed. Nerves appeared when the dress went on (as they always do) but you never would have guessed when you saw how beautiful Suzy looked walking towards her future Husband.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather. We were spoilt for choice when taking the photos and the guests enjoyed their drinks reception in the courtyard, overlooking the moat and grounds.

If I captured majority of my weddings here, I would be a very happy Photographer!

A Mythe Barn, Harry Potter Themed Wedding – Sarah and Hayley

Mythe Barn Wedding VenueI met Sarah and Hayley at an open evening at Mythe Barn. Two nervous Brides walking around, wondering how people were going to respond when they told them they were marrying each other! They’d had some rubbish experiences before this open evening with some suppliers and luckily, it wasn’t the case with me!

Then, they lost my details!! This resulted in the both of them Googling Photographers in Birmingham with a flower in their name. Knowing them like I do now, this does not surprise me one bit! Thank goodness they tracked me down…. Read more

Warwick House Wedding – Sophie and Dan

Birmingham Wedding PhotographerA few years ago, I became friends with a wonderful Woman called Abigail. She is the amazing talent behind Pumpkin events. We have worked together quite a few times now, on styled shoots and couples weddings but nothing was more rewarding than Abigail recommending me to her own family members.

This beautiful Bride is called Sophie and she is Abigail’s Sister (no pressure there then). After the Girls got ready at the Welcombe Hotel in Stratford upon Avon, we all headed to St Peter’s Catholic Church in Leamington Spa, where I don’t even think Dan was prepared to see how beautiful his bride looked walking down the aisle.

Elixir Ibiza Wedding Photographer – Stacey and Alf

Birmingham Wedding Photographer

Having been to Elixir in Ibiza before and knowing how amazing the couples are treated there, I was so excited when Stacey’s email landed in my inbox!

From blogging Heather and Ste’s wedding, Stacey and Alf were able to see Elixir for themselves and apparently, it was from this blog post that they decided it was the place for them. How amazing is that?

These guys are up there with some of my most chilled out couples. Stacey was still writing her group shot list on the morning of the wedding!

The ceremony was beautiful, over looking the beach and with a little bit of cloud, so it wasn’t too hot. After this came the food! Have I ever mentioned the food at Elixir? Some of the best I have seen and tasted.

The best part was when Stacey asked if we could go off again, just the three of us, for some more photos at sunset. YES!! It’s at this time when my couples can have some alone time. It’s wonderful to be surrounded by your friends and family but spend some time with each other too. It slows the day down, even if it is just for twenty minutes.

It was such a beautiful, relaxed celebration and I hope you can imagine this from the images. Enjoy!
