Last weekend we met up with Gemma and Alastair at Newstead Abbey for their engagement shoot. As they booked me over the phone for their wedding next month, it was the first time we'd met; the engagement shoot is a brilliant way of getting to know each other before the big day and make important wedding plans. The sun was beating down and we took a walk around the lake area and back up to the carpark, pausing to capture Gemma's bling. Oh, and they brought along their gorgeous Jack Russell Bailey, who absolutely loved having his photograph taken - look at that doggy smile!Read More
It was the first time we'd met Natasha and Sam at the weekend, as they booked me for their wedding over the phone. They easily got the hang of having their photo taken, showing a natural affection for one another. We're looking forward to their big day at Kelham House in August. Fingers crossed they get amazing sunshine on their wedding day too!Read More
Grace and James are getting married in June in the church near Grace's parents' home, with a private marquee wedding reception and BBQ for all their guests to follow. We timed their engagement photoshoot perfectly to catch the best of the recent heatwave weekend, wandering around the blossom trees in the sunshine before planning out their wedding timings and discussing all the details. They are a lovely couple and we're very much looking forward to capturing their big day.Read More
Last week we met with Vanessa and Adam for their engagement shoot at Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire. It was a very cold, crisp winter's day but the sunshine was out, along with the snow drops, hinting that spring is just around the corner. Their wedding next month, at their community church Trent Vineyard and reception at Thrumpton Hall, is the first of our wedding season. They booked Mirror Imaging after we photographed the wedding of their friends, Bethan and Josh, last year.
After walking round the lake and stopping in all the sunny spots, we warmed up with some wedding planning over drinks at the nearby Hutt pub. Here's my favourite moments from their pre-wedding photoshoot.Read More
Dawn contacted me a while back after seeing me on Kelham House's list of recommended photographers and after speaking on the phone, she booked me for her wedding to Nick in July. It will be an intimate affair, no bridesmaids or best man, just a small number of their closest friends and family. This will be a lovely wedding to photograph; relaxed, personal and meaningful. We met up in Farnsfield to take a photo-walk amongst the trees and greenery, not forgetting a close-up of Dawn's incredibly pretty and unique pale sapphire engagement ring.Read More
Vicky got in touch a while back about photographing her wedding to Peter and I knew straight away I wanted to be their photographer. For one, she's going to make a beautiful bride! Their Nottingham wedding will also be a huge affair in the town centre, bringing together their Egyptian and English roots with much celebration and merriment. Lastly, it is clear how much Peter adores his bride-to-be, and it's lovely to witness such attentive, sincere affection between them. In contrast to the urban setting for their wedding, I wanted to take their engagement photographs in lush, green surroundings. Newstead Abbey is looking rather beautiful at this time of year and is very quiet in the week, so it seemed the perfect choice. Drinks and thorough planning of their day followed in the nearby Hutt pub! It is, by the way, completely correct and in keeping with their wedding traditions to wear the engagement ring on the right hand ring finger!Read More
We met up with Sarah and Tim in Farnsfield at the weekend for their engagement photographs and we all laughed for most of the way through! We're really looking forward to this wedding, we think it's going to be a lot of fun! They're getting married in July in Linby with their wedding reception at the nearby Cockliffe Country House. Sarah and Tim were introduced to Mirror Imaging via mutual friends. After their photographs we shared a bottle of Prosecco in the local pub and planned out their big day.Read More
Sarah and Dave moved to Australia about four years ago and are returning to Nottingham in May next year to hold their wedding. Dave used to be a part of the team at World Service Restaurant and, as one of the best restaurants in the city, it made sense that they'd choose World Service to host their wedding reception.
They were back visiting Nottingham this week for their engagement party with their UK friends and family, as well as taking the opportunity to meet up with Mirror Imaging for a 'photo-walk' around Nottingham Castle and The Park. We also made some wedding plans and worked through the timings of their day, toasting their engagement with a glass of bubbly - because what better way to show off an engagement ring than with a glass of champagne in hand?! I am excited to be capturing their wedding next year - they've made some gorgeous choices for their day that reflect my tastes too and it promises to be a rather wonderful celebration.
I absolutely love their engagement photographs, it's clear they're the best of friends as well as life partners and this shines through in their images.Read More
Last weekend we met up with Lee-Anne and Rob in Newark for their engagement photographs, ahead of their Warwick wedding at the end of the month. I've known Lee-Anne since primary school, so its a double honour to be photographing her wedding day. The gardens around Newark Castle behind the Gilstrap Registry Office and along the river proved a gorgeous backdrop for their engagement session. We were hit with a great rainstorm half way through but after taking shelter under the bandstand the sun came out again!Read More
Sam and Nathan are getting married at Norwood Park at the end of May, with some wonderful wedding ideas and details in the making that make a wedding photographer clap her hands together with anticipation. We met up at the weekend to capture some pre-wedding images, with thanks to nearby Hexgreave Estate for providing a secluded and picturesque backdrop. They are a super lovely couple and I'm really pleased they've chosen Mirror Imaging to be a part of their day.Read More
