I’m a recommended Norwood Park photographer so it was great to head back to one of my favourite wedding venues in Nottinghamshire for Steven & Louise’s wonderfully informal spring wedding last year.
The day was memorable for the totally chilled out girls & boys prep, a wedding card from Sir Bobby Charlton, some incredible & very emotive speeches, and Steven’s dancing to Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice, Ice Baby’ which topped off my coverage perfectly. As per usual, I’ll let the images tell the story of their day interspersed with some words written by Steven & Louise themselves. Enjoy!
“We got married in Norwood Park, Southwell, Nottinghamshire. The venue appealed to us because it was a beautiful looking venue, with accommodation, place of marriage and reception all in one place, so logistically it made sense. We wanted informal surroundings but somewhere which was still special.”
“We are not religious so we didn’t want anything too formal. We wanted it to be relaxed and also we wanted us & our guests to have a good time, so we wanted nice food & drink, calm surroundings and a good venue to have a good party with our nearest & dearest.”
“We found Ian through looking at photographers in the East Midlands via the internet. Ian’s website stood out because of the way he photographed. He was very natural, he didn’t do lots of formal group shots and blended into the background. He did everything we asked but also he didn’t direct us too much which is what we wanted. When we met Ian at his house this stood out to us in that he had the same values as us. We wanted to enjoy the day and not be taken away from our friends and family. The photos were as good as I expected, we were really pleased with the results. He captured the emotion of the day and told a story from start to finish.”
“We didn’t spend a lot of time on the thrills, so creative stationery and flowers etc wasn’t that important to us. Most of our money was spent on good food and the venue itself which is what people remember. The most creative thing we had was probably the cake and fortunately, we had a good friend who did this for us as a wedding gift.”
