Hannah & James's Southwell Engagement Photoshoot

We met up with Hannah and James yesterday in picturesque Southwell, and walked from the Southwell Minster to the park and back to the centre, stopping at The Saracen's Head for a drink and to plan out their day. They're getting married very soon - this Friday - at Swancar Farm! Here's my favourites from their engagement session.

Clare & Stefan's Wedding at Tom Brown's Brasserie

Clare and Stefan were married last Saturday at All Hallow's Church in Gedling with a reception at Tom Brown's Brasserie. We started the day at Clare's parents, getting ready and capturing some of her important details, all of them with meaning to Clare. In fact, the whole day was peppered with lots of touches with significant meaning to the couple, including their pet names for each other, making it truly unique to them. Their love of bright colours but a vintage style, and eclectic symbolism of chickens, penguins, pumpkins and bikes was brought together seamlessly by Mad Philomena, who styled the venue and produced the bespoke stationery based on the classic Penguin books.

After photographing Clare with her beautifully scented bouquet of ivory roses by Floraldeco, we met up with Stefan and his groomsmen at the church, photographed the rings with their pumpkin ring cushion (another meaningful symbol) and then Dennisson Classic Cars arrived with the bridesmaids and the bride with her dad. The ceremony was conducted with a real sense of celebrations, and in keeping with this we threw a huge amount of confetti before the red bus took all the guests to Tom Brown's.

The reception looked amazing styled by Mad Philomena, with bespoke jam jar drinks to greet every guest and Highly Strung playing beautiful string music, a chill-out marquee that later transformed to the children's entertainment room, outdoor games and a Parisian cake table with tempting treats by Yummy Little Cakes. Jam jars decorated with the couple's insignia were filled by Floraldeco with brightly coloured mixes of flowers, including dahlias, freesia and hydrangea. Tom Brown's produced a beautiful three course wedding breakfast, before the cake was cut and the DJ played their first dance song. Hope you enjoy the highlights from their BIG day!
