THE CHEQUERS INN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Carla and Steve were married on a lovely sunny summers day in August. Carla and Steve got in contact with me in early 2019 and were looking for a wedding photographer who specialised in documentary wedding photography – after a quick hot chocolate at a little cafe in Bingham, we were all booked up and counting down the days till the wedding.
A few days before the wedding, the weather forecast looked pants, it looked like heavy rain pretty much all day…. but, someone must have asked the big man upstairs to post the rain for another day as we dodged the showers and we kept dry all day!
Carla wasn’t fussed about any pictures in the morning, she just wanted to chill and get ready on her own at the venue, so my day started around an hour before the ceremony.
WEDDING GUEST ARRIVALS
Something I love about The Chequers Inn is the pub, it’s often pretty dark the summer the light comes through the big windows and creates such dramatic light, and for me as a wedding photographer this type of light really works for my wedding photography style.
WEDDING CEREMONY AT THE CHEQUERS INN
The ceremony was a nice quick one with Carla and Steve getting all their lines correct first time and after a little break for a single reading, it was time for the first kiss.
Next up was the signing of the register which is always a funny one as the registrar’s always say no photography during the signing, and then proceed to ignore all the mobile phone flashes going off!
Anyway, I’d got my stealthy shots of Carla and Steve signing the register and after they had walked down the aisle, it was off into the garden for some drinks.
WEDDING HUGS AND KISSES
The part straight after a wedding ceremony is possibly my favourite part of any wedding day, it’s the time I get all my hug pictures as people congratulate the happy couple. As you can see from the images below – there was plenty of hugs!
WEDDING SPEECHES AT THE CHEQUERS INN
The wedding breakfast was next on the agenda, after which came the speeches and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room once Steve had done his speech – an absolute privilege to hear all the stories.
Because we somehow managed to dodge the rain showers the early part of the evening was spent outside in the garden at The Chequers Inn, with the kids playing the outdoor games and the big kids listening to the live musician.
WEDDING DISCO AT THE CHEQUERS INN
The evening properly kicked off with the cake cut and the first dance followed by one of the best discos I have seen in a long time, everyone up, everyone dancing and no one minding me capturing their dance moves.
I really enjoyed the wedding of Carla and Steve, two down to earth people, with two amazing little girls – congratulations guys!
THE CHEQUERS INN AS A WEDDING VENUE?
The Chequers Inn is one of my favourite wedding venues, the vibe, the feeling of the place is special.
Tucked away up a quiet country lane in the beautiful village of Woolsthorpe you are surrounded by beautiful views and from the rear garden, you get to see the Belvoir Castle high up on the hill.
The Chequers Inn allow you to have the wedding you want, they don’t force you to have anything, they don’t just copy and paste the previous wedding and make your wedding the same – they allow you to be creative and have the wedding that you have always wanted!
