Lara & Dan’s Winter Wedding – Elvaston Castle & Dovecliff Hall

After being delayed and transported between countries due to the weather, Lara & Dan finally made it into the UK from Australia for their wedding.  After the wedding ceremony held at St Bartholomew’s Church, Elvaston, we had the very rare opportunity to photograph Lara & Dan inside Elvaston Castle …. icon smile and had almost 2 hours to spend with the Bride & Groom, which was brilliant.  No way was I using flash for these photos, I wanted to retain the atmosphere of the Castle.  So out came the video light, which if used with care gives stunning results as you can see below.  After wedding photos at the Castle it was off to Dovecliff Hall, Stretton for Lara & Dan’s wedding reception, a few more photos, some great speeches and then back for first dance.  This was our last wedding of 2010, and what a way to finish what has been an amazing year for myself and Emma icon smile Lara & Dan, we hope you are enjoying an amazing honeymoon in Thailand, and look forward to catching up with you soon.  Some favourite images from your wedding for you …..

Zara & Stephen – Winter Wedding

Finally managing to catch up with blogging our winter weddings … !  After photographing Zara and the girls getting ready at Blackbrook House it was on to St Alkmund’s Church for the wedding ceremony.  A few photos of Stephen and the lads and guests arriving wrapped up – it was freezing … !  I always feel sorry for any Bride & Groom when vicars do not allow photos during the ceremony but some do and I have to respect their wishes, such a shame.  Anyway, after the wedding ceremony it was back up to Blackbrook House for the wedding reception.  Beautifully decorated by Lavinia and her team, with the added special touch of Zara’s Mum Bev, providing all the gorgeous flower arrangements for the wedding.  Family photos then some time with Zara & Stephen in the gardens was followed by the evening reception and the fantastic entertainer Paul Martin.  A few favourites below …….
