Rachel and Simon

Wedding at The Council House and World Service Restaurant in Nottingham

 

bride and groom portraits in The Lace Market

 

Last year Rachel contacted by email to see if I was free to photograph her wedding to Simon. When she found out I was booked she sounded obviously disappointed, along the lines of If I can’t have you I don’t want anyone. I felt bad but didn’t expect to hear from her again. At the time I was booked right through summer to mid-Autumn. A couple of weeks after Rachel’s first email I received another informing me she’d gone on to change their original date from a Saturday in June to a Saturday in October because she was determined I would photograph their wedding. I had no idea Rachel was going to do this and her new date turned out to be the day I was supposed to be going on holiday but because she had gone to such lengthens to book me I altered my holiday plans. That my wedding photography was thought of so highly made me feel immensely humble.

When I met Rachel and Simon for their pre-wedding portraits they were complete naturals in front of the camera so, despite telling me, as so many of my clients do, that they hated being photographed, I thought it would be fun to do two shoots. So we did, one in Derbyshire and then another in Nottingham a few weeks later. Their wedding was in late October and the only time that as available to them at The Council House in Nottingham, as it had been almost fully booked, was 4pm. By then at that time of year I knew when they left the ceremony there would be little to no natural light left for daylight photography and as I began to say we could get creative with additional lighting around the streets and alleys of the city Rachel announced., ‘We’ve already thought of that. Simon and I are going to get ready together a few hours before the ceremony and have left two hours for you to spend with us on our portraits.’ They were a wedding photographers dream.
