Our midweek wedding is a blissful, breathtaking, glorious celebration of love at Nottingham’s Carriage Hall. Stephanie and Peter were married in April, which they chose as a time of new beginnings – and the perfect month to start their married life! The lovely couple always knew they wanted a humanist wedding ceremony: “Humanism celebrates the idea that we have one life to lead, so we need to live it in the here and now, that we need to make the most of life’s beauty and riches every day; it focuses on the goodness of humanity and community, family and friends; and the importance of love.

“We worked with a wonderful celebrant, Laurie Cohen, to write a ceremony that was completely unique and personal to us. Working with a Humanist celebrant allowed us to reflect back on our relationship and really think about why we wanted to get married. It was a really lovely process and probably one of the most fun parts of planning the wedding!

Tom and Jess’s wedding is beautiful, with mismatched pastel colours for the bouquets and bridesmaids… the details are gorgeous; the bride absolutely stunning. Jess and Tom make the loveliest couple: today’s bride wears a delicate lace dress while her groom is in navy blue – a nice touch for a pretty, elegant, and fun wedding.

The venue is Chesterfield’s Ringwood Hall, and all images are by the lovely Jon Cripwell Photography. Jon describes Tom and Jess as “an absolutely fantastic match for each other“, and says, “The ceremony was beautiful, and obviously emotional for everyone involved, but especially the bride! Jess valiantly made it through her vows, and it was touching to see Tom reassuring her and helping her through when the happy tears began to fall.

Jenna told me all her nightmares about falling down the aisle disappeared the moment she saw Jak there waiting for her: “although I knew the room was full, it was like no one else was in the room.” Isn’t that beautiful?

Their wedding was a vintage glam affair, liberally decorated with gypsophila which looks gorgeous. Jenna wore a silk wedding dress and Jenny Packham jewellery. The venue – wonderful Blackbrook House in Derbyshire – needed little decoration and was the perfect setting for a glamorous, vintage-inspired wedding.

I really love this wedding for its creative little touches. Jak and Jenna have designer friends whose skills came in handy for everything from the invitations to hairdressing on the day! They chose Nottinghamshire wedding photographer Pete Henderson to capture their day and his images are just lovely.
