Nottingham church wedding photographer bride and groom exchange rings


It’s time for a slightly different blog post from a recent wedding, this week it’s a little black & white snapshot into the morning and wedding ceremony of Emily and Bogdan who were married over the summer.

I’d met Emily and Bogdan early on in 2019 when they got in touch to see if I would like to photograph their Church wedding in Nottingham and their after-show party at the Newark Showground – obvs I said yes!

Roll on 6 months and the wedding day had arrived!

The morning of the wedding was nice and relaxed with Emily, her sister and her mother having their hair and make-up was done by the time I rocked up. Emily was also hosting Bogdan’s sister, nephew and his Mum who were all getting ready at the house.

Bogdan’s family had driven from Romania a few days before the wedding, Emily and Bogdan would be travelling back with them to start their Honeymoon – not a journey I would like to do with a hangover…

The wedding ceremony was to take place at the local church and one which Emily had been going to for many years, St Lawrence the Norwell Church.

Photographing a Church wedding can be an uphill challenge as a wedding photographer, so many members of the Church who conduct the wedding ceremonies have very restrictive rules on where and how you are to photograph inside their Church. As you can see from these images, I was allowed to take pictures from inside the Church, but I was only allowed to do so from the back once the ceremony had started, I always respect the rules and that has included in the past an instruction to take no pictures from inside the Church during the ceremony.

Once the ceremony was done and the wedding register was signed by Emily, Bogdan and the witnesses it was time to exit the Church, enjoy the sunshine and receive congratulations from all their family and friends before making their way on to the wedding breakfast and celebrations at the Newark Showground.

Now for some images!
