Holly & James Country Marquee Wedding in Nottinghamshire…

Do you know what I love most about ‘home grown’ weddings?  The fact that if you’ve got the imagination and determination (and a large enough group of willing helpers) you can have everything exactly how you want it.  Getting friends and family involved makes the whole experience so much more enjoyable, and that comes across in just how happy everyone looks in the images below.

Holly and James wanted a glamorous country theme, taking influence from the gardens and trees.  There were even trees inside the marquee.

Preparations started at Holly’s parents home, Danethorpe Hill Farm, in the conservatory with beautiful natural light everywhere.  Holly and her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup perfected by Jenn Edwards and Ali Gunn.

While everyone else got involved with the final preparations, some drawing shorter straws than others!

Holly’s stunning Augusta Jones dress was from The White Room in Southwell.  Once ready, Holly’s dad came upstairs to see his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time.  I can’t tell you how much I love capturing emotion like this…

I didn’t have time to look back through those last few images before leaving for the church, but I was so excited to see them.  So after mentally high-fiving myself, off I went to meet James and the guys, waiting nervously at Winthorpe Church.

There was a surprise waiting for Holly upon arrival back at the reception.  One additional and unexpected wedding guest, the horse that Holly used to ride years ago.

With quite a restricted space around the marquee, we had to get creative with a way to photograph such a large group of guests.  This involved a forklift, a rattly cage and no safety equipment whatsoever!

One of the guests kindly sent over a shot of me nervously expressing ‘that’s high enough thanks’, while everyone below shouts ‘higher!!’. The things I’ll do for a good photograph…
