Wedding Date: 18th November 2017

Most memorable moment: Holding hands before the ceremony


Yesterday I was at the White Hart Inn where I captured everything from bridal prep - 1st dance, I arrived at the wedding venue at 9am ready for a 9:30am start.

Nicoles Wedding ceremony was at 12:30pm (a great time for a winter wedding) their wedding breakfast was at 3pm so time was on our side.

From start to finish their wedding was full of atmosphere and emotion, everyone was having such a great time, there were smiles in every corner of the room with people beaming from ear to ear.

Before the wedding Nicole's main request was to hold hands with Ryan and have an intimate moment where she could hold his warm hand and exchange words, this really was so emotional and EVERYONE (including myself) had tears in their eyes as they both stood holding hands.

12:30 was the ceremony time and Nicole can be seen walking past the tunnel that would later be used as their WOW shot to finish off their wedding day celebrations with an amazing night shot.

Although it was cold we stayed outside to capture the family group photos and then went into the warm of the friendly White Hart Inn, we had over an hour remaining so we went around the guests capturing those always treasured candid moments.

We now had around 25 minutes remaining before the guests would take their places for the wedding breakfast followed by the speeches, I went to the car and grabbed my think jacket so Nicole could wear this between portraits, 20 minutes later and we were all done and wrapped up with some absolutely beautiful portraits of Nicole and Ryan.

Below are just a few images from their wedding day to highlight the fun, emotion, passion and love that went into their wedding day celebrations.

Mr And Mrs Morley White Hart Inn

Bride: Lisa

Groom: Chris

Wedding Date: 3rd September 2016

Date Booked: 23rd January 2015

Wedding venue: White Hart Inn

Entertainment: Paul Grundle Magician

I don't blog about every wedding due to the amount of weddings I shoot, maybe I should make a new years resolution to write a blog for every wedding I shoot in 2017 perhaps.

Lisa's bridal prep was very relaxed and everything just flowed beautifully, in the room was the grooms daughter, Lisa's sister and of course her Mum who was on hand to help with making sure the dress was looking its very best.

It did rain during the bridal prep but Lisa wasn't phased by this at all and was purely focused on marrying the man of her dreams and seeing his smile as he lay eyes on her walking down the isle.

As always there was a fantastic team of staff at the White Hart Inn who were on hand to make sure the day ran smoothly to the timings that Lisa and Chris were expecting.

Entertainment was of course supplied by the truly fantastic magician Mr Paul Grundle, Paul what can I say but you were a huge hit on the day, the guests were going crazy over your close up magic act as always.

Below are just a few images form their wedding day, I hope you like them as much as I do.

Mr And Mrs Crarer White Hart Inn Wedding Photographer

Venue: White Hart Inn Moorwood Moor

Bride: Laura

Groom: Oliver

Wedding Date: 16th July 2016

Date Booked: 19th November 2016

Entertainment: Paul Grundle Magician

My most memorable moment: The look of amazement on the bride and groom face when they viewed the imaged from the pond on the back of the camera.

What an amazing day to have for any wedding photographer, Laura and Oliver's day really was a day I will remember for such a long time, firstly because it was also my wedding anniversary as well the truly fantastic atmosphere there was.

As with most of my weddings I capture the entertainment was supplied by non other than the amazing Paul Grundle Magician, Paul was here to entertain the guests after their meal and during the time the bride and groom were taken away for photos.

As a Nottingham Wedding Photographer this was the first time I've ever shot at this Derbyshire Wedding venue The White Hart Inn, I was blown away by this venue and the stunning grounds available for images, situated just 25 miles from junction 25 of the M1 it took me around 35 minutes to travel to, making it easy access for couples searching for a venue within a 25 mile radius of Nottingham.

Laura's bridal prep was at her parents home in Matlock, just a short journey in the car and we were at All Saints Church in Matlock for their wedding ceremony at 1pm, after the ceremony we made our way to the White Hart Inn for drinks and canopies, the speeches were in their beautifully lit main room where all 80 guests ate food and laughed at the wedding speeches, in the evening the wedding party doubled to 160 guests who were entertained by Paul Grundle Magician.

Here are just a few images from Laura and Oliver's fantastic wedding day, i'm a full time Nottingham wedding Photographer and would highly recommend this stunning venue.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did taking them.
