Recent weddings – Eugenie & Craig

Congratulations to Eugenie and Craig, who were married at Kilworth House in Leicestershire on 22nd November. As Nottinghamshire based wedding photographers, we also cover weddings in Leicestershire and Kilworth House near Lutterworth is a very beautiful venue. The weather once again was absolutely stunning with clear blue skies, but it was also bitterly cold! The wedding guests braved the icy temperatures to have their group photos outside and Eugenie and Craig warmed up by the fire for some romantic wedding photos together. As Christmas is coming Kilworth House was decorated very festively for the season, making the reception a stunning glow of tea lights and baubles. A small number of their wedding photographs are below, but more will be available to view in the Client Galleries section, when the couple return from their honeymoon.

Beautiful Framed Wedding Prints & Canvases

Mirror Imaging is extremely proud to now be working with two quality suppliers to produce stunning prints and canvases for all our clients. After literally months of searching and sifting through suppliers, we’re excited to be offering our clients a quality service from start to finish. Our chosen printing company is one of the best in the business and, as a professional laboratory, they have enabled Mirror Imaging to provide prints with outstanding colour quality, richness and brilliant lustre finish.

Our framing company is in a league of their own – with clients that include Paul Smith and Waitrose. We’ve been working very closely with them to produce full size samples so our clients can see the finished products. Having selected 24 frame samples which we feel set the prints off at their best and will look great in a number of different surroundings, clients, parents and grandparents can choose the perfect look to complement their home.

One of the unique services that our framers also provide is canvas printing and stretching, which uses a method called die-sublimation rather than standard inkjet print. This cutting edge method effectively soaks the canvas in the colour, which can be stripped and put in a washing machine if necessary and still retain the colour. Standard canvases are about a third of the cost to produce and won’t withstand such wear and tear, in fact they can fade very quickly in even normal light and sag on the frame over time. However, with die-sub the canvas will likely last a lifetime. We’re offering these canvases in large format 20” x 30”, 30” x 30” and 40” x 60”.

The client gallery area of the site will be updated so that in time you can order your images framed as well as mounted. Our wedding photography and portrait clients can enjoy a post wedding or post photoshoot meeting, going through samples and canvases to choose artwork that is entirely personal and unique. You can even opt for a wedding montage – a selection of your favourite images mounted and framed in one large bespoke sized frame, to hang in your home as a permanent and happy reminder of your day.

Client Wedding Galleries

Mirror Imaging’s wedding clients can now log online and look through their photographs in our client galley area. We’re very pleased we can offer this service to our wedding clients and it allows couples to view their wedding photography as soon as they get back from honeymoon. This is a great way of sharing your wedding images with friends, family and work colleagues and also choosing your favourites for your album.

We are also developing an ordering system, so payment will eventually be processed online by Paypal and prints delivered either as mounted images, or as mounted and framed prints. In the meantime, you can order the mounted images on the site, which will automatically email through your chosen prints, but for framing information please phone for details on 07968 159465.

Recent Weddings - Catherine & Mark

Catherine & Mark were married on 17th October at Melbourne Parish Church, St Michael & St Mary. This most beautiful of churches is almost a cathedral in miniature, backing on to Melbourne Hall and the stunning lake that borders it. It offers a beautiful backdrop for wedding photography and the local birdlife, including swans, ducks and geese, provided the soundtrack! The day itself was another very sunny day, especially considering the time of year. Catherine and Mark bookmarked their day at the Donington Parkfarmhouse Hotel nearby, with the bride getting ready in one of their cottages and an ivy clad reception in their atmospheric converted barns. To see all their wedding photographs please visit the Galleries section.

Recent Weddings - Selina & Robert

It’s been a very busy last few weeks, starting with Selina and Robert’s wedding at the end of September at St Judes Church in Rainworth. It was an incredibly sunny day for late September, with blue skies and hardly a cloud. Selina and Robert held their reception at the John Fretwell Cricket Ground in Mansfield, which is a newly refurbished complex and they converted the large sports room into a marquee draped reception. We missed the last cricket game of the season by a week, which was a blessing as we were able to take their group photo on the cricket lawns! To see their wedding photographs in full, please click on the Galleries section at the bottom of the website.

Nottingham Wedding Entertainment

If you’re currently planning your wedding you may be struggling to find good quality wedding entertainment for your guests at reasonable cost. As a wedding photographer, I know that after the ceremony and before the wedding breakfast can involve some waiting around for the rest of the wedding party, with often just the one drink! This is the perfect time to mark the start of the celebrations and Nottingham Jazz offer a range of jazz sounds, from duos to saxophone quartets, to get your party swinging. All are students and theref0re reasonably priced but their sound is very professional, having played a number of distinguished events, private weddings, clubs, bars and receptions. They seem to offer a great deal of flexibility, whether you want a real party vibe or mellow sophistication! Contact John or Joel on 07903 809 664 or email
