Colwick Hall Wedding Photographer | Melissa & Matt

Summer wedding in the gardens at Colwick Hall

Preparations For The Wedding

I began my day by making my way over to Melissa’s parents house in West Bridgford where bridal preparations were in full swing. It was clear that the house was a hive of happiness and excitement that morning which became very infectious.

The bride and bridesmaids were in the capable hands of Debora Lola who is a very talented hairstylist and Adwoa Busia who was in charge of make up. Flowers were provided by Elizabeth McKenna who formally starred in BBC’s Apprentice . I had a sneaking suspicion that my wife would have liked to have been there to meet her, this being one of her favourite TV programmes.

Wedding Ceremony In West Bridgford

It was soon time to make my way over to St Giles Church in West Bridgford where the ceremony was to take place. It was certainly a highly emotionally charged affair. Matt was clearly overcome with the anticipation of his bride’s arrival which I was glad to have captured perfectly. The picture certainly highlighted his obvious love for Melissa who looked absolutely beautiful as she walked down the aisle.

Melissa and Matt met back in 2013 but it was only when Melissa moved away to Exeter that they decided to become an item. The 4 hour train journey obviously proved no obstacle to their relationship and the love they had for each other was clear for all to see on their wedding day.

After leaving the church and finding a parking ticket on my windscreen (the least said about that, the better!), I travelled the short distance to Colwick Hall which is a fantastic palladian style Georgian country house and was once the ansetral home of Lord Byron.

Wedding Photography At Colwick Hall

I am very familiar with this beautiful wedding venue. The staff take care of every detail, and it is always a privilege to be asked to be a Colwick Hall wedding photographer.

The wedding meal and speeches were full of laughs and magical memories and again very emotional. This was interspersed with me taking a variety of photographs in the grounds of Colwick Hall with a very relaxed and happy wedding party.

The evening reception was thoroughly enjoyed by all and both the wedding party and guests really immersed themselves into the spirit of the day with lots of dancing. The atmosphere was full of fun and everyone was on their feet to celebrate with the happy couple.

It was a fantastic wedding to be part of and I am very lucky to be able to be a wedding photographer at Colwick Hall

I wish Melissa and Matt all the very best for their future lives together.

Here are a few of my favourites from the day, enjoy!
