Southwell Minster and Norwood Park Wedding Photography – Lauren and Ash

We were so happy to offer our wedding photography services on Lauren and Ash’s big day at Southwell Minster and Norwood Park.  Both venues are a delight to photograph at. We, certainly took advantage, and made use of the locations they had to offer.

Norwood Park Wedding Photography 

Norwood Park is a delightful venue to photograph. It is liscensed to hold Civil Ceremonies in three different areas. The ceremonies can be indoors or outdoors. On this occasion Lauren and Ash decided to have their wedding ceremony at the grand Cathedral, Southwell Minster with the wedding reception at Norwood Park. The grounds at Norwood Park are beautiful with many opportunities for photographs inside as well as out. 

The Cathedral of Southwell Minster

Southwell Minster is the Cathedral of Nottinghamshire. It has been a place of pilgrimage for nearly one thousand years. It is located in a rural setting and is the hub of Southwell town. The architecture is grand and is well-known for it’s fluid carvings of plants, animals and green men. Collectively these are known as ‘The Leaves of Southwell’. 

Lauren and Ash’s Wedding Day.

Cathy arrived in the morning to Norwood Park in Southwell where Lauren and her bridesmaids were getting ready. It was an overcast day with luckily no signs of rain. The atmosphere was mellow but exciting in the bridal preparation room. In preparation, the bridal party were more than happy to do their own make-up. However,  they had a professional in to style their hair. They all looked stunning, especially Lauren, who was more than ready to walk down the aisle at Southwell Minster in style. 

Brian met Ash and his groomsmen one hour before the wedding ceremony, at Southwell Minster. The idea was for Brian to take some natural and group photographs with Ash. What a smart turn out! Ash was dressed in his RAF uniform. He is a Mechanical Engineer of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows. This excited us as we had hoped for a fly pass. Unfortunately, the Red Arrows were abroad at the time of their wedding so they missed out. What timing!  But they did get a surprise fly pass from two tornedo jets.

Cathy left Norwood Park for Southwell Minster and parked the car. Just as she was getting her gear together there was a loud ‘boom’! Damn …. the ‘boom’ came from the aftermath of the tornado jets as they flew over Southwell Minster. Even Ash was unaware of the surprise. He heard it from inside the Cathedral’s walls.  He was over the moon to say the least.
