Zanna & John’s Wedding West Retford Hotel 03.06.2017
Wedding West Retford Hotel | West Retford Hotel Photographer | South Yorkshire Wedding Photography
I always find it exciting to photograph at a new venue, new location, new idea’s, surprisingly this was our first time at the West Retford Hotel. A venue which mixes both tradition and modern elements with large gardens offering a wealth of photographic opportunities.
Prior to heading to the venue we covered bridal prep at Zanna’s home… a few minutes drive to the venue we meet a relaxed John and his supportive groomsmen. The weather was perfect allowing this wonderful couple to have their ceremony outside under the pagoda. Its garden surrounds made for a perfect location as bride Zanna, in her beautiful wedding dress, walked down the aisle with her proud Mum Mandy. This heartfelt ceremony in front of close family an friend’s was a pleasure to capture. As guests enjoyed pimms and beers we had a brief photo session with our newly weds and their Roll’s Royce before they headed out for a short drive as the new Mr & Mrs Merrett. We photographed a small number of group photos and informals before wedding breakfast and speeches in the wonderfully decorated main room.
It was a lovely evening so we again utilised the gardens for bride and groom only photo’s which was very relaxed and great fun. Following cutting of the cake and the all important first dance, guests were enjoying the evening celebrations with the party in full spirit and plenty of people up on the dance floor.
Thank you to my assistant Matthew and to the staff at The West Retford Hotel it was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to returning to your venue.
I have to say a personal thank you to Zanna & John, you are a truly wonderful couple! What a fantastic wedding day to be a part of, we loved every minute!
Many congratulations to you both enjoy your sneak preview…..
