Today, we are delighted to share image previews from the beautiful wedding of Ben and Carrie captured by www.markpugh.com.
Carrie and Ben chose Kelham House Country Manor Hotel (Newark) as their wedding venue for both their ceremony and reception.
THE DAY OF THEIR WEDDING
Mark Pugh joined the couple at Kelham House as groom Ben was putting the finishing touches to the ceremony room. The couple had put lots of their own time, creativity and attention into the detail of their wedding and as the guests took their seats in the main room, Carrie made her way down the stairs to have her final meeting with the Registrar. With the meeting complete, she made her way down the aisle to meet Ben who had been waiting patiently. After two beautiful readings and an emotional ceremony, the couple made their way into the bar for drinks, canapés and formal photographs. Despite the autumnal weather, Mark Pugh was still able to take everyone outside for their formal group photographs: "I always recommend ten or fewer formal photographs. The images themselves take only moments to capture, but getting each group into position can be incredibly time consuming, which if you're not careful, can eat into a large part of your special day. I like to capture a few images, then get additional informal group shots as the day progresses.
It is always a good idea to have the speeches before the wedding breakfast food is served; lots of people find making a speech in front of a large group of people nerve-wracking, so it is usually a good idea to get it out of the way early."
With the wedding breakfast complete, the room was turned round for the evening guests, complete with a fantastic disco provided by Ian Richardson. Mark Pugh captured the cake cut and first dance, before leaving the group to dance the night away.
Carrie, Ben and their friends and family were great fun to spend the day with, and it was a privilege for www.markpugh.com to capture their stunning wedding.
Mark Pugh and Team wish them every happiness for the future, and we hope you enjoy viewing 100 plus firstLOOK wedding image previews.
Their final wedding photography collection will contain over 400 plus images, and we will share additional image previews soon.
As always, enjoy.
ABOUT KELHAM HOUSE COUNTRY MANOR HOTEL
Mark Pugh has captured many weddings at Kelham House, and he loves it because each couple gets exclusive use of this beautiful venue. Despite only being ten minutes drive from Newark and the A1, the venue sits in its own grounds and feels as though it could be miles from anywhere. However, do not be fooled by the seclusion and the grand, traditional exterior, the venue is extremely modern internally, with a smart bar area, and a large function room capable of handling almost any wedding. Mark Pugh also adores the extensive grounds, which allows for creative wedding photography.
If you are looking for a wedding venue in the Nottinghamshire / Lincolnshire area, Kelham House Country Manor Hotel should definitely be on your ‘to look at’ list, along with its sister venue, Cockliffe House.
