Wow!!!!!!! We honestly don’t know how else to say how unbelievable the photos are!!!! They are absolutely incredible we literally can’t thank you enough, they are just PERFECT!!
I loved Nicola & Gareth’s wedding. It was an uncomplicated & relaxed day for close friends & family. A simple church ceremony followed by a reception held at a favourite pub, The Chequers Inn – not far from a hill overlooking the beautiful Vale of Belvoir where Gareth proposed to Nicola.
When Nicola got in touch she used words like natural, informal, chilled, relaxed – to describe the vibe of the day, and I immediately knew these were our kind of people!
Having a chilled out day at the pub, you could be forgiven for going a little light on the details. But this was an impeccably styled & elegant day. Nicola runs Rose Press, a gorgeous design & letterpress studio based in Notts. She designed the stationary herself (of course!) – which you must check out in the photos below – but also assembled a team of ace local suppliers to help achieve her & Gareth’s vision for the day. We’re talking: Kula Tsurdiu dress made from gorgeous Nottingham lace, dual Peach & Prosecco (!!) and Red Velvet cakes from Nat @ Yummy Little Cakes, and insanely good floristry from Michele Gledhill. Style really mattered to these two.
Their colour theme ran through the day, tying all the visual strands together – stationary, bridesmaids dresses, the explosion of coloured confetti, flowers, cake, Gareth’s bowtie, EVERYTHING! It wasn’t contrived or incidental, and it wasn’t just a colour theme for the wedding. These colours were theirs – I saw them displayed throughout their home as soon as I stepped inside the door in the morning.
One of my favourite parts of the day was heading out with Nicola & Gareth’s squad for some late evening photos in the field. Afterwards, the three of us hung out together for some portraits and then Nicola & Gareth hopped a fence and climbed the hill where Gareth proposed.
Now it’s time for you to check out the photos from their amazing day. Go!
