Nicola and Chris chose Nurstead Manor as Nicola had her school leavers prom here some years before and really loved the venue which is full of history being over 1000 years old. They chose us to be their wedding photographers as Nicola’s mum had seen a friends wedding photographs were we had been wedding photographers – we love a recommendation! We had some fun with Chris and his best man before Nicola arrived and they fully embraced having some fun photographs even though admitting they generally hated having their photos taken – glad we’ve changed your minds about that!
Nicola arrived for the service looking stunning in Chris’ dads Aston Martin which we were told was his pride and joy! We had some time to take some shots of Nicola’s three bridesmaids and also some with the car too before the service. Chris appeared a little nervous while waiting for his bride but was soon relaxed after she arrived.
After the service the guests had drinks and family catch-up on the lawn while we took the couple off around the gardens and other rooms of the manor for some couple photographs. We finished with the formal photos that the couple had requested and just made it into the beautifully decorated marquee as the rain came down. That certainly didn’t stop the guests tucking into a fabulous looking hog roast with all the trimmings!The very fashionable wedding cake looked great too and tasted even better – thanks Chris! As more celebrations got on the way it was time for the speeches, Chris had obviously spent a long time preparing his speech which all the guests found really funny, along with his best man and father of the bride. Congratulations to you both it was a pleasure to be part of your day!
