Anna & Stuart’s Awesome Colwick Hall Wedding
Anna & Stuart have been together for 6 years and engaged for just over a year. They wanted their Colwick Hall wedding to be bright and colourful which is why they chose a blue and orange theme throughout. They chose a Colwick Hall wedding for the fact its a stunning building with great photo opportunities and awesome food. Everything is in one place and they could stay over the night in the stunning bridal suit.
The weather was great on the day of the wedding, with blue skies and white whispy clouds. Bridal preparation was in the Byron suit, a stunning room which made for some lovely morning shots. Following a lovely ceremony and speech by Anna’s sister Anna & Stuart were now Mr & Mrs Lacey! Guests were invited outside for a drink & canapé shortly followed by a few formal group shots. We had time (and the weather) on our side so we got the big flash out and went for something a little different for the grooms-men & bridesmaids photographs. (It would be rude not too with dresses that swirl like that!)
Speeches are always a part of the day I enjoy capturing, you can have a mix of emotions and often something unexpected. I think this was the first wedding I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing a bridesmaids speech, rapped out to Will Smith’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!
We took advantage of the grounds for some bride & groom shots as well as a couple in the mirrored corridor. This also led us into the female toilets… for a groom shot! Not always my first choice of room for a groom shot, but I couldn’t resist using a room with great aesthetics and a throne of a chair!
The evening had a huge buffet, a fun cake cut and a great first dance, hats off to Stuart for giving his wife a twirl! There was also a great dance floor and some particularly cool moves from the father of the bride! Special thanks to Paul & Esme for second shooting.
Anna & Stuart’s advice to couples planning their wedding? – Enjoy the planning and the day itself and make time for each other during the day as that’s what it’s all about.
