Gemma and Alastair's wedding took place at the end of September, as the first signs of Autumn were showing - and what a beautiful time of year it is. Their ceremony was held at the quaint Coddington Church; nestled amongst berry-laden yew trees, with atmospheric low-light indoors and a rather fabulous statement ceiling over the alter. After a few photographs at the church and a shower of confetti, we made our way to Kelham House for their wedding reception. Gemma's peachy coloured bouquet seemed so perfect against the backdrop of Kelham's gardens and unmistakeable brickwork. The celebrations continued into the night, and we left them after dark.Read More
Lydia and Andy have been together for years but planned their wedding in just a few short months, wanting to celebrate the strength of their relationship and the importance of their friends and family. As I went to school with Lydia she was familiar with my photographs being posted on Facebook, so she contacted me to photograph the big day and Mirror Imaging was very honoured to do so. Southwell is where we both went to school and Norwood Park is a beautiful local venue and one of my favourites. We started the day with the girls getting ready and I captured some of Lydia's very covetable bridal accessories, including the stunning watch given as a gift from Andy and her unmistakable red-soled Louboutins! Then on to the picturesque Sutton-on-Trent church (well, a quick detour at the pub first to say hello to the groom!). Winds and a little drizzle didn't spoil the day at all, with the help of some fun umbrellas and the beauty of Norwood Park's gardens in full blossom. The cake needs a special mention, an eye-catching glamorous diamanté design by the talented No. 82 Cake Studio, which sparkled by the light of the super-sized light-up initials provided by Mad Philomena. We left an exuberant party in full swing, after capturing the dancing and merriment. Congratulations Lydia and Andy! Below are some 'photographer's favourites' as highlights of their wedding day.

Katie and Paul were married this month at Wollaton Church and held their wedding reception at Nottingham University. We started their day on the top floor of The Orchard Hotel and captured the hustle and bustle of getting ready with Katie and her five bridesmaids, two flowergirls, two pageboys, mum and mum-in-law, make-up artists and hairdressers! The flowers arrived courtesy of Zinc Floral Design, and Katie's unstructured, blousy bouquet was simply sensational. Katie handed out gifts to say thank you to her loved ones before we laced up her rather stunning dress. The light on the roof of the hotel is always so good, so we took a couple of images of Katie looking radiant, before dashing off to the church to meet Paul and his groomsmen at the church. The best men had organised a surprise for the couple (a surprise for me too!) in the form of an owl ring bearer called Tilly, who was absolutely enchanting and delivered the rings beautifully. After the ceremony, we made our way to a secluded part of the university for photographs, before heading to the Trent Building for Katie and Paul to rejoin their family and friends. The cake deserves a mention too as one of the best I've seen, immaculately iced in shades of coffee and cream to tone with Katie's dress, courtesy of April Delights. Here are some of Mirror Imaging's favourite moments to tell the story of their wedding day.Read More
Bethan and Josh were married in their church, the Trent Vineyard in Nottingham, a faith community and group of friends that are close to Bethan and Josh's hearts and lives. There was a huge attendance but it also had a very personal feel. Guests bought homemade cake to serve after the wedding ceremony, as well as indulging in the abundance of sweets in glass jars, before a bubble shower to celebrate the newlyweds. They drove off to cheers in Josh's beloved white Mark II Escort, gifted to him by his dad and restored over the years, which was beribboned for the occasion. We took some photographs in the nearby Nottingham University gardens before arriving at the Trent Building for their wedding reception. Here are some favourites from the day.Read More
