An early December wedding took this documentary wedding photographer up north to the lovely Nottinghamshire countryside. The weather on the day was so cold, but the forecast snow didn’t turn up and the flood warning from the previous week’s heavy rain had been rescinded. I think everyone breathed a sigh of relief that morning.
Emma and George got married in the beautiful St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Shelford. I started off with George and his groomsmen at the pub just up the road from the church for some candid shots of the guys relaxing before moving on the the church itself. I don’t know whether it was just because it was so cold outside, but it felt like the warmest church I’d ever been in. After the lovely service and some group photos in the church yard, it was time to move on to Emma’s parents’ farm for the reception. You really wouldn’t believe just how luxurious you can make a cow shed! I’m guessing this isn’t how the cows get to see the shed.
After the meal and speeches, the dancing began. I think Emma and George had been practising for the first dance, it was very impressive! The guests really liked to dance too, the dance floor was one of the busiest I’ve seen at a wedding.
