A few photos from a wonderful wedding shot in a reportage style in The Carriage Hall, Plumtree, Nottingham. The Carriage Hall offers contemporary style in a striking restoration of what was once the old Plumtree station goods shed. The Perkins Family renovated this building to create Nottingham’s unique function space. The venue can accommodate about 150 guests.
The Carriage Hall is a popular choice for many couples in Nottingham. At a recent wedding at the Carriage Hall I’ve noticed they have added new features to their outside gardens. They have added few more benches and chairs which is not much but definitely helps with photography and being able to produce more varied work quickly without long marches from one location to another. I have also managed to find additional spots for bride and groom portraits not too far from the venue. Unfortunately during this wedding, due to weather and time constraints, we did not have the time to do any bride and groom portraits. Most wedding photojournalists don’t take any staged bride and groom portraits. It is our job to only document the event as an outsider but that does not mean that none bride and groom portraits are taken during the day. Most guests have cameras and smart phones with which they take plenty of pictures often unknowingly forcing the newlyweds into poses. All you’ve got to do at that time is to be there and capture the right moments.
