Helen and Francis

Arriving at Helen and Francis' home we started to see how creative Helen was. And considering some of the flowers and other decorations had only been finished that morning, she was as cool as a cucumber. (As a side note, the 15 on the bracelet is 1915!!!)

The ceremony was so personal and it was lovely to see two friends announce their love for each other surrounded by their friends and family. Moving on to Swithland woods for a quick wander through the trees was a great little breather before kicking off proceedings at The Old stables and Griffin Inn.

The falconry was brilliant fun and when we stepped inside for dinner, the creativity of Helen was even more apparent. There were photos set up, hand made glass ornaments, personally designed tea towels, hand made cake toppers and even hand made glass beads on the tables. It must have taken for ever but it was all worth it - take a look.

Francis and Helen's engagement

It was raining. Which was not ideal. So instead of getting straight out into Wollaton park, we decided to stop and have a drink in the pub nearby first. This gave us a great opportunity to learn about Helen and Francis' ceremony and the traditions involved in a Quaker marriage.

Once the clouds had parted, we were able to wander over to the park and had a great few hours with the camera. Have fun looking through.

Ellie and Toby's Engagement

We met Ellie and Toby at Norwood Park so that we could have an explore of the grounds before the big day. The beautiful house has so much history and it was a really lovely setting to have a wander. Especially as with a January wedding planned, we were aware we might not get the same chance on the day!

With the couple part way through PhD's it was a great way to relax and it was a lot of fun messing around in the gardens. We caught up on wedding plans and had a giggle throwing some apples... fairly standard pre-wedding photo shoot!

Enjoy a sneak peak.
