The Riverside Gallery Nottingham Wedding Photography - bride and groom leaving the wedding reception


It’s time for a slightly different wedding blog post; this time it’s the wedding ceremony and the aftershow party from the wedding of Sam and Steve who held their wedding at the Riverside Gallery which is part of Brewhouse and Kitchen here in Nottingham. All the images shown here are from their black & white wedding gallery – Sam loves black & white photo’s; so makes perfect sense to keep this little post all in black & white.

Sam has been following my work for ages, whether it was on Facebook or Instagram; Sam got in touch in June 2017 to talk through her wedding plans and how my style as a documentary wedding photographer would fit perfectly for her and Steve’s wedding at the Riverside Gallery at the Brewhouse and Kitchen.

The morning of the wedding was nice and relaxed with Sam, her two girls and her maid of honour all getting ready at Sam’s house. There are some lovely images of Sam being helped into her dress by her girls in the morning, something I know meant a lot to Sam.

The trip from Sam’s house to the venue of the wedding at the Riverside Gallery took about 30 minutes.

Once parked up it was time to find Steve to see how he was getting on! No surprises Steve and his best man were in the Brewhouse & Kitchen bar chatting to all the wedding guests. After a few sips of his drink, it was time for Steve and all the guests to make their way up to the wedding ceremony room at the Riverside Gallery.

Sam and Steve had booked me to be their wedding photographer because of my informal & relaxed wedding photography style and as you can see from the photos below, my style allows the wedding guests to relax and enjoy the wedding without a bossy photographer telling everyone what to do.

The wedding ceremony was beautiful with Sam’s daughter Molly waking her down the aisle to give her away and her other daughter Layla being responsible for her wedding ring – the girls mean the world to Sam and Steve, so I knew how important those images were going to be for them.

Once the ‘I do’s’ were done and the wedding register signed, it was off outside to enjoy a bit of the summer sun and to taste the beer which The Brewhouse and Kitchen had brewed especially for the wedding.

The wedding breakfast at the Brewhouse and Kitchen is held in the same room as the wedding ceremony – the Riverside Gallery, so once the room had been turned around, we all went back upstairs, to get stuck into the food.

The wedding speeches were good fun and for Sam emotional. Sam’s eldest daughter Molly was first up with her speech and that had everyone in tears. Next up was Sam’s Maid of Honour, then the Groom Steve and finally it was the Best Man’s speech and as you can see from the reactions in the wedding photos at the Riverside Gallery below – it was a very good and funny Best Man’s speech.

I knew the evening was going to be a fun one, you can always tell early on at a wedding if the evening and disco is going to be a good one – and this was a very good one!

I hope you enjoy looking at these Brewhouse Wedding Photos as much as I do!


Some kind words from Sam and Steve

“Andy was great before the wedding keeping us informed and giving advice and ideas. On the wedding day, he went above just being a fabulous photographer to keeping everyone calm, organising and capturing our wedding just the way we wanted. Andy is simply’ the dogs kahunas’”
— Sam and Steve
