Take two of the nicest people in the entire world, the first proper snowfall of the year and the stage is set for the winter wonderland wedding of Emma and Paul.

We headed up to see Emma when we arrived at Nunsmere Hall. She was surrounded by her sister and adorable niece, Erin, who was super excited for the wedding! The day had finally arrived for Emma and Paul (and Erin too who had been asking every day “is it was the wedding day yet?!”)

Hair and make-up were in the final stages for Emma and the ladies and excitement was building as they peered out the window to see guests arriving after battling the snow. Meanwhile, the gents were almost ready too. Tobiah delivered a present to Paul from Emma which was wonderfully captured by him and Tom from Tom Harrington Films. It was brilliant to work alongside Tom all day, he produces stunning wedding films, blends in so well on any wedding day and is marvellous company too!

As the guests filtered through the doors of Nunsmere, our groom, Paul, was now ready and greeted everyone downstairs before it was time for the ceremony to begin.

The bridesmaids and flower girl were all ready and it was time for Emma to get into her stunning Pronovias wedding dress. With some help from her mum and bridesmaids, Emma was ready!

We had a little time for a few portraits of our beautiful bride and then it was time for the ceremony to begin.

Wedding Ceremony at Nunsmere Hall

The fabulous Ken Hollett, who was toastmaster for the day, escorted Emma’s mum into the ceremony, soon followed by the bridesmaids and finally, a very excited Emma and her dad.

Special readings from two of their closest friends featured in Emma & Paul’s wedding, one who had flown in all the way from Turkey for their special day.

After “I Do”s and enjoying some music by the very talented Craig Owen Music as they signed the register, the newlyweds headed back up the aisle followed by all of their loved ones.

Mulled Wine & Canapés

With more music from the talented duo from Craig Owen Music as the guests enjoyed drinks and hot canapés in the warmth before we all ventured out into the snow for some photographs. This also sparked a snowball fight between some of the younger guests and their dads!

Back in the cosiness of Nunsmere, Emma and Paul enjoyed lots of cuddles and congratulations before we stole them away for a few relaxed portraits.

Dinner & Speeches

After receiving all of their guests into the wedding breakfast, Paul and Emma were seated by Ken to enjoy their food and company of their guests. Following the wedding breakfast, it was time for the speeches. We heard from Emma’s dad, Paul and best man, DW. DW mentioned in his speech that he and his wife Claire, refer to Paul and Emma as “The Nicers”. It is clear to see how they both got such a title! These two are genuine, loving and from the first time we met them, we both said to each other how “nice” they were!

We loved spending the day with them and capturing their memories of such a beautiful wedding.

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

As the guests made their way from the main hall at Nunsmere and into the marquee, we couldn’t miss the oppurtunity to take Emma and Paul outside for one last epic portrait before the evening reception began. As we always work as a team, we had both sneaked outside and picked the best spot and set up our lighting before we asked our bride and groom to venture out into the cold! This allows our couples to enjoy maximum time with their guests and means, especially when it’s sub-zero outside, they can keep warm! The snowfall throughout the day and with a smattering still coming down created the best setting for some cool (literally!) photographs of Emma and Paul.

Now it was time for the first dance and some classic dance floor action!

A huge thank you to these wonderful human beings for being so welcoming, lovely and amazing. We hope you enjoy a few of our favourites (there were lots to choose from) from this Nunsmere Hall winter wedding.
