Memories for Life!
Alex & Tom married at the tiny All Saints Church in the picturesque Nottinghamshire village of Thrumpton & held their reception at the very lovely Thrumpton Hall a short walk up the road. Their story is real life Romeo & Juliette. Derby Fan marries Forest Fan!! (Watch out for Tom’s special gift during the speeches).
I met the girls at Alex’s parents house in Derby, with pink fizz & a selection of brioche pastries. Photographing all the little details & thoughtful gifts. The delicate dusk pink of the flowing bridesmaids dresses set the subtle pink colour theme throughout the day. Alex’s stunning off the shoulder dress was by Pronovias from Rococo of Melbourne. The lace detail was beautiful.
Photographs were limited in the tiny church by request of the vicar. It was a lovely & rare chance to be able to sit back & take in her words during the ceremony.
After a confetti bombing at the church gate. Alex & Tom shot off with their driver for a breather & glass of champagne, giving their guests & myself time to make their way down the road to the Hall for drinks & canapés.
This was my first Wedding at Thrumpton Hall, it didn’t disappoint, what a stunning venue. I loved how each room was set up with family air looms & details. After Alex & Tom caught up with their guests I organised a few group shots. Then as the guests were skilfully ushered Jiggy style down to the lakeside pavilion, which was beautifully decorated by A&T & their families to a classic, relaxed, country theme. The mix of colours & textures of the flowers looked amazing, completely in keeping with the eclectic venue. The bunting was all handmade & check out the very cute mini chair champagne place settings. Favours were flower seeds & pink gooseberry jam. We had time for couples shots in the lounge.
After suitably loving, emotional & risqué speeches. We were blessed with magical light by the lake & took time out for a few more couples shots as evening guests arrived.
The extremely tall naked cake by Bakezilla was cut, then followed the first dance, massive hog roast & Tequilla!! Some guests chilled out in their deck chairs & others danced the night away. Alex & Tom you smashed it!! What a brilliant Wedding! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day. Here’s a few of my fav’s.
