A few months ago Nimisha and Chris booked me as their wedding photographer at Thrumpton Hall, Nottingham, for their civil wedding ceremony as well as their Indian wedding ceremony. Thrumpton Hall is a lovely venue set within acres of beautiful gardens with a lake, rose garden and marquee. As a wedding photographer it is a venue which lends itself to wonderful photographic opportunities both inside and outside.
Get To Know You Shoot
We met up with Nimisha and Chris at Thrumpton Hall to finalise the arrangements for the wedding photographs on the day. As usual we did a ‘Get to know you’ shoot. It was great fun talking about the different ideas and looking at the endless locations around Thrumpton Hall where we could photograph. Nimisha and Chris were a little unsure to begin with but soon got into the swing of things and settled down well when they realised it wasn’t about looking into the camera and saying ‘cheese’. My style of wedding photography is totally opposite to that. I love capturing the natural personalities of my clients. That is why the shoot is important as it enables the clients to feel more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera knowing what to expect from me behind the camera.
After a lot of organising and several meetings with Nimisha their big day finally arrived. It was glorious to say the least. The weather could not have been better. Only one downpour but luckily that happened when we were indoors. First the civil wedding ceremony in the morning and then the Indian wedding ceremony in the afternoon followed by the evening do. It was all full of fun, love, laughs, colour, romance, music and dance. Nimisha looked beautiful in her wedding sari and Chris looked cool in his formal Indian outfit. Both Brian, myself and Martin thoroughly enjoyed photographing the whole day especially the girls’ dance to Jai Ho near the end of the evening. I would like to thank Martin for helping out with shooting as the third photographer on the day.
