SHOTTLE HALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
A RAINBOW THEMED WEDDING
Megan and Will live locally to me in Leeds, but we actually returned to Will's home village near Nottingham for their wedding.
Megan got ready with her bridesmaid in the beautiful cottage in the village of Teversal. The cottage and its grounds were simply stunning. The wedding was rainbow themed and the colours worked perfectly against the rustic backdrop.
I loved having so much colour to work with.
The church is very special to Will, as he attended throughout his childhood. Many of the guests had links to the church, and other members of the church attended the service, It was such a full and vibrant wedding to be a part of. Megan's family had travelled over from Ireland, and it had been the first time in a long time that they were all together.
The wedding ceremony was conducted by Rev Kate Bottley, who had been a curate at the church and is good friends with Will and Megan, The sermon was then delivered by Rev Richard Kellett, who has been the vicar at the church long enough to have watched Will grow up and grow in faith. After the service, we walked down the little path to the vicarage's paddock, where there was a marquee waiting. The guests had been asked to bring cake.
There was then a Great British Bake-Off themed competition. There was so much yummy cake - it was amazing!
The reception was at Shottle Hall, Belper, which is simply breathtaking. They had the marquee and bandstand to enjoy, and it was a warm summers evening, so the guests gathered outside listening to an amazing guitarist. We also ventured into a nearby cornfield for some portraits.
The wedding ended with a beautiful sunset. Thank you so much for having me, Megan and Will.
